“ I am Lord, heaven and earth are my subjects, the grand dao are my followers! …. Dao Lord我为君,天地为臣,万法从之!一道君 „
Li Qiye spoke this line, he had finished establishing a foundation for the new epoch[note 1].[1]

Overview[]

The Dao Lord is the 12th level of cultivation. A person must open a new 12th Fate Palace.[2]

When a cultivator reaches the Dao Lord realm, they are able to grow a Primordial Tree and Dao Fruits.

Dao Lord is the highest known Cultivation Level in the Eight Desolates and is its strongest existence. Nonetheless, there was only one dao lord in each generation. Effort and luck alone weren’t always enough.[3] An execption from this rule was a pair of Dao Lords, husband and wife,[4] but it is not yet known, what condition must be met in order to achieve this. Whether the Heaven's Will is neccessary to become a Dao Lord is also not yet known.

In history, top experts and peerless geniuses traveled towards this goal. In the end, only one would find success. This path was filled with thorny briars and unknowns. Most would die horrific death and become paving bones for the future winner.[3]

They can create Dao Lord Weapons, the highest ranked of which are called Patrimony Weapons. Sects, countries or nations with the legacies of Dao Lords are called Inheritances.

Stages[]

  1. First In the Small level: At this stage a cultivator uses spiritual energy to temper their body and chaos energy to temper their True Fate.
  2. Second In the Medium level: At this stage a cultivator is using the tempering of the body to increase their Blood Energy and the tempering of the True fate lead to its upgrade.
  3. Third In the Big level: At this stage a cultivator uses this improvement to open a new Fate Palace.

First Dao Lord[]

Li Qiye, who created the whole cultivation system, can be seen as the first Dao Lord.[1]

The first Dao Lords after him proved their Dao after the Primordial Start, when Li Qiye's Primordial Tree appeared. This period of thirty thousand years became known as the Resplendent Age.[5] Two Dao Lords are mentioned without names or titles, the second one of them having a diamond-like body riding his sword. After the disappearance of the Primordial Tree enough time passed for most people to forget about it, which implies the existence of further Dao Lords and Immortal Emperors. Zhan Xian is mentioned to have a Dao Fruit, while also having won the competition for the Heaven's Will. She became the last Immortal Emperor before Li Qiye's War in the World of Death.[6]

The first Dao Lord of the Eight Desolates Epoch was Duck’s Egg Buyer.

Name and Title[]

Dao Lords are mainly known by their titles.

Female Dao Lords[]

Reign[]

It is unknown how long Dao Lord can rule.

Death[]

It is currently not known whether Dao Lords may ascend to the (remains of the) Tenth World. Only few Dao Lord are known to be dead for sure:

Trivia[]

  • Ascension is the lifelong pursuit of many. This was the reason why people wanted to become a Dao lord. It was so that they could see the legendary world above. Unfortunately, those who weren’t Dao lords would find going up there prohibitively difficult.[50]
  • In order to become a Dao lord, one needed to create their own grand Dao. Otherwise, using someone else’s merit laws - regardless of how powerful - would still render the practitioner inferior to those in the past.[51]
  • This path was filled with thorny briars and unknowns. Most would die horrific death and become paving bones for the future winner.[3]
  • For dao lord titles, anyone with one word before “Emperor” was incredible enough.
