Virtuous ParagonEdit

Time Frame Chapters
625 (1095 - 1720)
  1. Li Qiye never truly travels on the Path of the Heavens as he always suppressed himself for purity’s sake in the end he ends up crafting a powered Primordial Grand Dao, the 'Dao of Seven Nights' which simulates the cycle of creation, evolution and destruction of a universe, it is immensely powerful and complex so it takes much longer than other Dao to complete.
  2. Li Qiye’s grand Dao wasn’t created for the Heaven’s Will. It directly opened up its own world and started a new era. In this place, his Dao was all, he was the lord of all. Due to its domination, even if Li Qiye wanted to seize the Heaven’s Will, his grand Dao still wouldn’t accept it. It would control the Heaven’s Will instead since this could only be considered a certain force within his grand Dao, not its entirety.[21]
  3. Since his Dao has not matured to 100% completion, he cannot step into the Path of the Heavens his Dao inspiration by the Ants on Ghost Island gave him the so called ‘skeleton‘ of a Grand Dao, but he himself didn’t know the profundities it would reach as it is once stated that he couldn’t even use the last Vessel (Athanasia) because he simply didn’t know what it did.
  4. Even with his strength suppressed before the Path of Heavens, he can already battle Emperor Assailants, Candidates, Contenders and Rivals without any problems. He demonstrates this by fighting the 4 Imperial Children and refining their physiques for himself[22]
  5. After arriving at The Heaven Spirit World, his blood energy was suppressed by the drop Life Origination water[23]


Path of HeavensEdit

Time Frame Chapters
339 (1382 - 1721)

Li Qiye had entered the path of the heavens, a completely unprecedented one. This allowed each of his techniques to have a world-destroying power. With the Grand Primordial Dao, all the mysteries of the world were in his grasp. At this moment, cultivation realms didn’t matter to him outside of trying to shoulder the Heaven’s Will.[24]

Immortal EmperorEdit

Time Frame Chapters
1 day 5 (1721 - 1726)
  • Becoming Prime Emperor, Li Qiye used the 3 slivers of Maelstroms Gold, Silver and Iron, to call upon their true forms (big maelstroms) they became Laws, which prompted the latter to become Grand Dao. They spun and became a circle. “These grand dao were inscrutable. They seemed to have been born in the primordial essence, even older than the heaven and earth. All the laws and dao of the epochs were derived from them.”
  • For Step Two of his plan he took out the bronze chest that he got from the bottom of Godwar Mountains. He opens it and throws the contents onto the Gran Dao ring. “They were twelve things that had the appearance of laws but weren’t laws, golden but weren’t gold, hardened but weren’t stones. They looked so natural hanging off the three dao as if this was their complete form.”
  • Step Three was the previously stated using of the Heavens Will as a part of his Grand Dao not his Grand Dao itself, so he utilised his “7 Night Dao” to prompt one of the twelve lights to absorb the 9 World's Heavens Will. Once absorbed, one of the lights begins to shine.
  • Step Four is confirmed by Tyrant and Golden to be the gathering of the 10th world versions of Heavens Will, also confirming that the 10th world has multiple Heavens Will, albeit around 1/3rd of the power of the 9 Worlds Heavens Will. This will require most if not all of the Heavens Will In a single generation (estimated 66) to make the 11 remaining lights shine.
  • Later named Primordial Will.


  1. After regaining his body Li Qiye visited the Heaven Suppression City in the Northern Grand Sea before returning to the Grand Middle Territory; this trip probably took several months. Li Qiye joined the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect and started his cultivation 11 days later.
