One’s Essence Energy(zhenqi) would undergo a qualitative evolution to form Origin Energy, which is capable of moving the world’s essence. While Essence Energy (zhenqi) represents one’s strength and the potential of one’s life, Origin Energy can meld into nature, gathering energy from it. At this level, one would have unlocked the secrets of the world. For example, an ordinary paper infused with Origin Energy can gain spiritualism, being able to float on its own. As such, Origin Energy realm is also known as Mystic Energy Realm.

3-dan Yin-Yang (三重阴阳)
Yin Yang comes in pair, and complementing one another, they induce growth in a cultivator.

4-dan Clarifying Turbidity (四重浊清)
There is differing purity to Origin Energy, and everyone’s soul has different weight. At this realm, one is able to purify the quality of one’s Origin Energy. In other words, this realm is an opportunity for one to cleanse one’s Origin Energy (Essence Energy/ zhenqi)
Also, at this realm, one would be able to see peer through the veil of the world to see the truth. Even without looking, just by using one’s senses, one would be able to peer into objects several hundred meters away. (493)
-The level of a top expert in the Myriad Kingdom Alliance

5-dan Consonant Spirit (五重合灵)

9-dan Chrysalis (九重蚕封)

Will of Mind

Refers to one’s cultivation of the mind. It affects one’s control over their cultivation, as well as the speed of the rise of their cultivation.

2-dan: Heart of Tranquil Water
-Allows one’s mind to remain completely tranquil regardless of the conditions one is in.
-Can be divided into two, [State of One] and [State of Insight]

State of Insight
-The Stone of Insight reflects one’s Soul Depth, which measures how strong one’s State of Insight is.
-Enlightenment Jade can raise one’s Soul Depth through contact.
One could be considered as a genius in Tianwu Kingdom (Tier 1) if he possesses a Soul Depth of 5.
If one has a Soul Depth exceeding 1, there is a 50% chance of them becoming a master teacher.
If one has a Soul Depth exceeding 1.5, there is a 70% chance of them becoming a master teacher.

Inferior Stone of Insight can only measure up to 9.0, while Intermediate Stone of Insight measures >9.0

Unique skills of Master Teachers:
[Soul Depth > 3] Impartation of Heaven’s Will (Chapter 234)
-When the lecture of a teacher was aligned with the essence of cultivation, they would generate a force field, inducing students in the surroundings to cultivate according to the method taught in the lecture.
-On top of that, one can also use it to ‘bewitch’ others to follow their commands. However, only works on those with lower Soul Depth than them.
(However, this is also limited to various factors. For example, being recongized by the heavens i.e. being a Celestial Master Teacher will grant greater credibility to one’s words, thus allowing one to possibly beguile those of higher Soul Depth than them)
Also, it is also limited by cultivation as well. If there is too huge a disparity in the cultivation realm, it might not work as well.

[Soul Depth > 10] Photographic Memory (Chapter 247)

Eye of Insight -> A skill only 6-star master teachers possess
It allows one to see the essence of matter and analyze the flaws of everything it lays its eyes upon, be it a person’s cultivation technique, a certain object, or anything else. In a way, it works similar to the Library of Heaven’s Path. However, it has its limitations in that the object or person analyzed mustn’t be too much stronger than the person utilizing the Eye of Insight. However, as one’s Soul Depth grows, the Eye of Insight will be able to peer into the flaws of those stronger than one.
Soul Tempering of a Mentor’s Calligraphy (师字炼心)
-It is said that some artistic works are able to temper one’s mind. The writing of Kong shi, the greatest master teacher in history, is known to be able to raise a master teacher’ Soul Depth just by studying it.
Soul Enlightenment (557)
Vanquishing Facade, Lucid Mind (Will of Mind 3-dan)
Also known as Lucid Analytical Realm (Require Soul Depth of 12, 4-star master teacher, but not necessarily can reach just because one’s Soul Depth reached 12)
This ability allows one to see through the superficial and peer into the essence of matter.
Cultivation Impartation (445)
-Formidable master teachers could design a cultivation technique based on their students physique and use their own zhenqi to impart energy into the latter to raise their cultivation
-Require one to be a 6-star master teacher, and a perfect understanding of one’s student
-However, it could cause one’s cultivation to be unstable
Spirit Gathering Diction (447) 言聚灵气,口吐莲花
-Ability of a 5-star master teacher
-As one’s Impartation of Heaven’s Will reaches a certain level, one would be able to draw in significant spiritual energy from the surroundings to aid in the cultivation of those listening to the lecture.
Ten Li of Vacuum (604) 言聚灵气,十里真空
-Ability of a 6-star master teacher
-This is an upgrade of the Spirit Gathering Diction. At this realm, one would be able to draw in so much spiritual energy that it creates a temporary spiritual energy vacuum in a radius of ten li around the lecture.

Becoming a Celestial Master Teacher will cause Insight Energy to descend from the heavens.

Inner World
This refers to the depths of one consciousness, where one’s soul resides.

Soul Impartation (7-star)

Mind of Void (无念无想)
A state in which a body is able to move based on instincts itself, even without a soul or intent to drive it.

Zhenqi refers to the energy that is accumulated from the gathering of spiritual energy from the air and suppressing them before absorbing it into one’s body.
The purer the zhenqi is, the more clear it would be, the further is able to progress on the route of cultivation.
There are 3 tiers to the zhenqi one can gather in the air

The purity of one’s zhenqi depends on one’s cultivation skill. One’s cultivation technique can be divided into the following levels:
Each tier is then split further into low-tier, intermediate-tier, and high-tier, and pinnacle

[Chapter 45 and 317]

Each tier is then split further into low-tier, intermediate-tier, high-tier, and pinnacle.

[Chapter 45 and 317]

Battle Techniques:
Spirit (The level of a top-notch expert in a Conferred Kingdom) -> Requires one to be at Transcendent Mortal realm
Phantom (The level of a top-notch expert in a Tier 1 Kingdom)
Mortal (The level of a top-notch expert in Tianxuan Kingdom)
It is further split into low-tier, intermediate-tier, high-tier, and pinnacle
Mastery can be divided into
Minor Accomplishment
Major Accomplishment
Spirit Euphoria (灵性激荡)
Rookie and Expert

Nine Paths (Occupation)

Refers to how esteemed one’s occupation is. Split into 3 Nine Paths:
Upper Nine Paths
Middle Nine Paths
Lower Nine Paths.

The rankings of each occupation are divided from 1-star to 9-star, where 9-star means that one has reached the peak of the occupation.

Upper Nine Paths
-E.g. Apothecary, Blacksmith, Formation Master, Teacher, Master Teacher, Physician, Beast Tamer, Seer(Chapter 248)
-Of which, Master Teacher is the most esteemed occupation of all

Middle Nine Paths
-E.g. Appraiser, Disguiser

Lower Nine Paths
-E.g. Gourmet, Way of Tea (Tea Master), Painter, Poison Master, Celestial Designer (Master Mechanic), Arcane Tunist

Soul Oracle (extinct)

Unclassified (Does not fit into the occupation structure)
Herbologist, Origin Flame Glacier Plain, Mystic Gates Hidden Jia

For Upper Nine Paths, one’s occupation rank is deeply related to one’s cultivation realm. For example, without a sufficiently strong cultivator, an apothecary will be unable to raise the temperature of a flame high enough to fully extract a herb, thus limiting the quality of the pill he could forge. Similarly, for formation masters, they won’t be able to trigger a formation if they don’t possess sufficient zhenqi to activate it.

However, not all occupations follow such strict rules. For example, painters and appraisers depend more on skill rather than cultivation.

General Cultivation Realm to Occupation Ranking:
Fighter 7-dan: 1-star
Fighter 8-dan: 2-star
Fighter 9-dan to Transcendent Mortal 1-dan: 3-star
Transcendent Mortal 2-dan to Transcendent Mortal 4-dan: 4-star
Transcendent Mortal 5-dan: Half 5-star
Transcendent Mortal 6-dan to Transcendent Mortal 8-dan: 6-star
Transcendent Mortal 9-dan: Half 6-star
Half-Saint to Saint 1-dan: 6-star

Nine Mo Craftsman (Craftsman Ranking System)
Craftsman are split into 9 mo, with 1-mo being the worst of them all

Teachers can be split into 3 categories
Low-level teachers
High-level teachers
Star teachers

There are three types a student a teacher could accept:
Listening in (Meaning, simply listening to the teacher’s lectures)
Normal student (Only taught the basic knowledge)
Direct disciple (The teacher would impart all of his knowledge to him)

Half-teacher means that the teacher has only taught the person on a single or few occasions. Even though they can’t be officially recognized as teacher and student, they are still somewhat in the relationship.

-Maximum score of 100
-Every correct instruction will result in one point added, while every incorrect instruction will result in one point deducted.
-However, as the answers are based on a 4-star expert of the occupation, it might not be entirely correct. If there is an error in the ‘answer key’, one point will be deducted first (the system assuming that it’s wrong), before 3 points are added (one bonus point)
3] Puppet Hall

For master teachers of half 5-star and below, they are further classified into four sub-tiers:
This is mainly determined by their cultivation realm and capability. There is no need for any examination to progress through the sub-tiers

For 5-star master teachers and above, they are classified mainly by their classification realm (though their capability as a master teacher must be up to par as well)
There are three main sub-tiers in each rank
They correspond to the three cultivation realm in each realm.
Half 5-star master teacher -> Transcendent Mortal 5-dan
5-star low-tier master teacher -> Transcendent Mortal 6-dan
5-star middle-tier master teacher -> Transcendent Mortal 7-dan
5-star high-tier master teacher -> Transcendent Mortal 8-dan
Half 6-star master teacher -> Transcendent Mortal 9-dan
6-star low-tier master teacher -> Half-Saint
6-star middle-tier master teacher -> Nascent Saint
6-star high-tier master teacher -> Saint 1-dan
In between the various rankings (such as 5-star low-tier master teacher to Half 6-star master teacher), there is no need to take an examination to promote from one sub-tier to another. It is more of a convenient way of classification then a rigid ranking system.

Half-Teacher Formality
-The formality that one does in recognition of a person as his half-teacher

Apothecary Pill Classification
Pills are classified based on grade (grade-1, grade-2…) with each grade corresponding to the star of the apothecary (i.e. A 1-star apothecary can forge a grade-1 pill, a 2-star can forge a grade-2 pill)
Pills can be split into four different levels of quality depending on their efficacy (which is reflected through their appearance):
Inscribed Pill

All pills, except for Inscribed Pill, possesses pill poison. It will accumulate in one’s body, blocking one’s meridians and acupoints, making it difficult for one to advance his cultivation. Can be solved.
Also, overconsumption of pills results in reliance on pills. One will lose confidence in his own skills to break through with his own strength, resulting in his mindset becoming his bottleneck.

There are two ways for one to become an apothecary from an apprentice apothecary
Pill Forging & Pill Debate

Apothecary Examination: Being able to forge a grade-3 pill makes a 2-star apothecary qualified to be promoted to 3-star apothecary (and so on)

Beast Tamer
A Beast Tamer’s rank depends on how strong the Savage Beast he can capture.

Beast Halls are usually located beyond towns, deep in the forests or mountains where they can house many savage beasts. Typically, it is difficult to tame a beast, and taming a beast stronger than one usually takes many years of companion and fawning upon to win its trust to convince it into making a pact with one. There are many psychological factors involved in taming a savage beast, and the most common trick used by most beast tamers involve the carrot and the stick.

3 Ways of Treating a Savage Beast’s Injuries (Also known as Tamed Beast)
1) Forging a suitable pill and feeding it to stimulate its recovery [Apothecary]
2) The tamed beast and the beast tamer has to cultivate the same cultivation technique (skill) [Beast Tamer]
3) Helping it break through its cultivation [Master Teacher]

A Savage Beast’s strength relies mainly on its innate talent and its race (for e.g. a Gold Alloyed Panther can only remain as a Pixue realm savage beast)
-The difference between a high-tier Savage Beast and a low-tier Savage Beast is the purity of its bloodline.
-The purer a bloodline, the higher the cultivation realm limit of a Savage Beast
-Conventionally, a Beast Tamer would take years to cleanse the bloodline of a Savage Beast to raise its cultivation.

Type of Beasts:
Savage Beast (Fighter 1-dan to Fighter 9-dan)
Ancient Beast (Possessing the ancient bloodline. Along with the triggering of their bloodline, their strength would grow swiftly)
Primordial Beast (A bloodline going even further back than ancient bloodline; stronger than ancient beast)
Spirit Beast (Upon breaking through Fighter 9-dan)
Saint Beast (Upon breaking through Transcendent Mortal 9-dan)
-Langya Saint Beast

Beasts Tamed:
Gold Alloyed Panther
Ancient Lightning Cloud Sparrow (Ancient beast, given to 1-star Beast Tamer Yun Tao)
Viridescent Eagle
Steelfang Howling Firmament Beast

Beast Taming Method:
Beast Pummeling Taming Method

-A ride on a Zongshi realm Beast Mount costs 20 Beast Bloodstone (10 million gold coin)

Taming Level (Depend on Loyalty Level => Equivalent to Trust Level)
Inceptive Taming (15~30)
Advanced Taming (31~45) => Signing of contract
Complete Submission (>45)

Savage beasts and spirit beasts possessing Dragon Bloodline tend to be much stronger, and their potential (cultivation cap) tend to be much higher than ordinary beasts as well. (422)
A savage beast can gain a trace of Dragon Bloodline through assimilating Dragon Blood. (However, it is extremely rare)
The Dragon Tribe is one of the strongest race on the continent, but it has already gone missing.
True Voice of Dragon
-Word of Submission, Bloodline Suppression (Works on those possessing Dragon Bloodline which hasn’t reached the level of a Pureblooded Dragon (True Dragon) 423)
-However, as the production of the sound requires the sound wave to travel through the meridians and harmonize all the acupoints within one’s body, it’s impossible for a human to produce it (even with superior zhenqi)
-On the other hand, True Incarnation of Dragon (humans) can do so.

Poison Master
Poison masters are shunned by the other occupations due to their allegiance to the Otherworldly Demon in the previous war against them. As such, they are unable to set up guilds openly in cities, and they are forced to remote corners such as the mountains and stuff.
Poison masters are known to wield the power to kill cultivators stronger than them by their unique use of poison, making them an extremely feared organization.
Coming into contact with poison often, poison would seep into their body, causing a trauma in their body.
【Art of Poison】 -> The book left behind by the first poison master.

Herb Kings (Red Lotus City)
-People deal with herbs. Trades with the Poison Hall.
-Leader: Great Herb King

-Innate Poison Body allows one to convert the energy within poison into their cultivation.
-Both grant a certain level of immunity to poison

Contract Gu (Great Herb King)
-Cannot be removed by anyone of 4-star and below (Uncertain what level it takes for a poison master to remove it)
-If the contractee died, the contractor would suffer a backlash from the Contract Gu and die as well.

Innate Fetal Poison (Zhang Xuan and Kong shi)
-A poison which one is afflicted with when one was still in his mother’s womb; the poison would meld with one’s blood and soul.
-Innate lack in fetal vitality
-Known as Innate Constitution of Premature Death, those afflicted with it don’t live past 30

Formation Master
It is one of the most prestigious occupations on Master Teacher Continent. A Formation Master is known to be capable of easily slaying opponents stronger than them as long as they are well-prepared.  Formation is usually made up of Formation Flags, though sometimes a Formation Core might be required on top of that. Such formations can only be triggered by Formation Masters who have a deep understanding of the formation.

Alternatively, formations could also be inscribed on a Formation Plate, though this will weaken the formation due to the size limitation. Also, this is an exceptionally troublesome job as it requires the inscribing of something extremely complex into a small plate so that it could be brought around easily. However, in exchange, any cultivator would be able to activate it by pumping zhenqi into it.

All formations contain a core where the energies intersect. By pumping zhenqi into this region, one can cause disruption in the energies across the entire formation, thus pausing it. However, this exact spot is nearly impossible to identify.

Formation Plate -> Can be activated easily to form a formation. Tend to be weak as a formation’s might is dependent on size.
(Require 3-star formation master to inscribe)
Formation Core
Formation Flag

Types of Formation:
Confinement Formation
Illusion Formation
Spirit Gathering Formation
Beguilement Formation
Hidden Formation
Augmented Formation (Overlapping formations together)

Soul Oracle
Soul oracles have also betrayed the human race and sided with the Otherworldly Demon during the war against them. As such, the Master Teacher Pavilion launched a crusade against them and cleared away every last one of their members, thus resulting in the loss of their heritage.
However, there could be tombs possessing the secret of their heritage do remain in this world, waiting to be uncovered.

While they are known to be able to live for eternity theoretically as unlike the body, the soul doesn’t age, they do have their limitations, such as the Five Declines. For example, Senescence Decline would cause one’s soul to slowly weaken with time, and thus one would have to cultivate continuously just to maintain one’s own cultivation realm. Also, they suffer from the heat of the sun, and are unable to come out in the middle of the day without a body. They are also exceptionally sensitive to yin energy, and it could cause extreme discomfort if their soul is left bare in the open during certain times of the day.

-Celestial Dance

-Soulless Metal Humanoid
This is the body that soul oracles use for offense as a puppet, as well as to house their souls. Possessing a Soulless Metal Humanoid will not induce Possession Decline.

-Oasis of the Mirage Deity

-Soul Guiding Method
This technique allows one to draw one’s soul out from one’s body

-Soul Severing Method

Appraisers specialize in the identifying of artifacts, pointing out their history and functions. They have unique tests to determine the ranking of an appraiser, such as the Harmonious Stream of Flowing Goblets.

However, they have a limitation. That is, regardless of how many correct artifacts they have identified in the past or how high ranked they are in the occupation, as long as they make three mistakes throughout their career, they would be stripped of their license immediately. Thus, appraisers are reluctant to confirm on an appraisal unless they are absolutely certain. Alternatively, they would also invite fellow appraisers to assess an artifact that give a ‘suggestion’ instead.

Herbologist (Unranked occupation)
Herbologists are not recognized by the Master Teacher Pavilion due to their lack of complete heritage and the lack of a full hierarchical system that allows the ranking of herbologists.

Garden Owners
-People who own a garden

Herbologist Clans
-The clans who work with garden owners to take care of their plants. Most spirit plants have unique conditions that require a special way to take care of them. For example, some plants need to listen to melodious singing to maintain their survival.

Earth Vein Spirit Vine
-A mystical plant that absorbs and redistributes nutrients to the various plants that require them. It is an essential for every single garden, and the death of an Earth Vein Spirit Vine could represent the collapse of an entire garden.

Demonic Tunist
The occupation was begun by a 9-star Divine Tunist, who when cornered by his enemies, played a frenzied melody that killed all of his enemies. That day, everyone learned of how fearsome the occupation was, and eventually, a guild was formed.

Demonic Tunist specializes in the utilization of music to attack one’s soul. Similarly, Demonic Tunist is also able to play melodies to soothe one’s soul as well.

In the clash between fellow Demonic Tunists, as both sides are struggling to attack the soul of one another, such a clash cannot be stopped, and it’ll result in severe injury on one side.

    1. There’s a wikia?
      The information on the later realm is inaccurate though :X
      I don’t wanna give a specific name until I know what they are, and I don’t think I want to use hanyupinyin for the latter realms :X

        Hi, can you update the glossary with the names of the realms above Saint 3-dan Embryonic Soul realm? I am curious about how you will translate them.
