No, he had to do it.
If he wanted avoid becoming a pitiful Dimensional refugee looking for one’s home planet Code, he’ll have to do it.

Translator: Law Editor: AntiGod
Sitting straight on the Tortoise chariot, Ji Has was staring at that enormous flower and was in a daze. The mysterious man floated above Ji Hap’s head with his hands locked together, continuously letting out streams of fiery light and striking into that flower of great Dao. Occasionally, he would say a few words to explain to Ji Has about this enormous flower and the Yu Clan’s seal on it.
This power of great Dao was a trace of Pan Xi’s great Dao, it was an embodiment of all great Dao of nature that Pan Xi understood and had under her control.
Reasonably, Pan Xi had fallen, and her soul was disintegrated as well, so her trace of great Dao should have perished too. However, some immeasurably powerful beings from Yu Clan had actually forcibly injected this black erect eye into her soul as a seal before her soul fell apart.
This seal contained an extremely terrifying power that was completely beyond imagination. Based on the mysterious man’s experience and knowledge, even he couldn’t tell for sure how powerful this black seal, which was filled with evil powers and despair, could be, or how many effects could it deliver. Nevertheless, just because of the existence of this seal, Pan Xi’s trace of great Dao remained after her soul disintegrated.
In addition to that, the mysterious man spent a while to run a test. According to the result, the black Yu Clan seal was still ceaselessly corroding Pan Xi’s trace of great Dao.
No one could tell how long ago did Pan Xi fall, but till now, ninety percent of the trace of great Dao she left had been changed by this black Yu Clan seal, and the black seal had forcibly turned the trace of great Dao into an unpredictably powerful treasure.
To a certain degree, this beautiful flower that had over a thousand petals had already become a tangible magic treasure from an intangible trace of great Dao. As this flower was an embodiment of the natural law of this world, Ji Hao could see it as the control hub of this world.
The one who controlled this flower of great Dao would be able to control the natural law of this world. Nevertheless, because the seal belonged to Yu Clan, only Yu Clan people who were capable of using some special kinds of magic could manipulate it. For the other people, even a slight move on this flower might bring them a great counterforce from the entire world.
The counterforce would be extremely terrifying. Not to mention Ji Hao, even Yu Yu might be crushed completely based on his current power.
“It’s impossible for me to turn it completely back now.” said the mysterious man blandly, “But if I spend some effort and be careful, I can still draw a certain part of the natural Great Dao out from this flower.”
On that gray, misty face of the mysterious man which never changed, a pair of eyes was sparkling quickly with a blue light.
He took out a few light purple pills and swallowed them up, after which, his body became further clearer. He then locked his fingers together and sent out streams of fiery light. Afterward, his body blurred again. Obviously, what he did had been consuming his power.
“Most fabulous part is whatever those Yu Clan people want to do, the base of that seal is the integrity of this flower of great Dao. Only the integrated flower of great Dao can maintain the balance, and the seal can continue existing.”
“Once I take a part of the great Dao away, the flower Great Dao will no longer be integrated, and because the Yu Clan seal has been forcibly turning the flower…no matter who tried to turn this flower of great Dao through the seal after I take a part of great Dao away, the entire flower of great Dao will break down.”
“And the breakdown of the flower of great Dao will cause a severe change in this world.” The mysterious man murmured to himself a bit excitedly, “Ji Hao, at that time, you can take the opportunity and take the creative power and the power of the natural law of this world. To both you and me, that will be highly beneficial.”
“With one precondition, will the flower of great Dao truly break down?” Ji Has was worried, looked at the mysterious man and asked, “What if we made a mistake?”
“I am ninety percent certain.” The mysterious man narrowed his eyes and said seriously, “After all, I witnessed how Pan Gu’s trace of Dao broke down. I have the experience, so I know.”
With a slight trace of pride, the mysterious man cast a glance at Ji Hao and continued, “Except me, probably only Yu Yu’s Shifu and very few other ones dare to guarantee like this. But even if Yu Yu’s Shifu came in person and dealt with Pan Xi’s flower of great Dao himself, he could only be seventy percent certain, while I am ninety percent sure.”
Yu Yu’s Shifu…that was the Shifu of Ji Hao’s Shifu.
Ji Hao stared at the mysterious man with a weird look and asked, “Old man, are you truly so powerful?”
The mysterious man snorted slightly, then proudly raised his head high and said, “Although, I am a bit down right now, at least I had my good time.”
Ji Hao curiously looked at the mysterious man and said “It’s strange, you barely talked back in the big world. Why are you talking over hundred times more in here than before? I think you’re over excited.”
The mysterious man remained silent, not responding to Ji Hao for quite a long while. After a couple of hours, the mysterious man had already changed his hand motions for hundreds of times. He finally began murmuring again in a strange tone, “Back then, I wasn’t in a good mood and dared not to show any trace of my existence…In here, on one cares about my existence at all…Added with the fact that my mood is suddenly boosted because I now see someone had even worse luck than I did. Therefore, I talked slightly more, this is reasonable.”
His mind was boosted because he saw someone had worse luck than he did? Ji Hao looked at the mysterious man in shock. He didn’t know that this old man could be so dark-minded.
Snorting coldly, Ji Hao pointed at the flower of great Dao and asked, “Your mind didn’t boost when you found out that Pan Xi has fallen, did it?”
The mysterious man didn’t respond. Instead, he was only concentrating on changing his hand motions. Gradually, his breath became heavy, and his hand motions changed faster and faster. Slowly, the incomparably enormous flower of great Dao, with each petal of it being thousands of miles long, released beams of bright golden light.
“I am taking the great Dao of sun of this world.” said the mysterious man in a deep voice, “It is slightly different from the great Dao of Sun of Pan Gu world, but they are ninety-nine percent similar. Ji Hao, get ready and open your primordial spirit. I am sending Pan Xi world’s great Dao of sun into your primordial spirit.”
Ji Has was scared badly that streams of cold sweat gushed out of his skin again. The mysterious man was setting a trap for those Yu Clan people, but Ji Has didn’t think that he himself would be a part of that trap!
It was an unbroken part of the great Dao of an integrated world, and it was the great Dao of sun, one of the top-level, most important parts of great Dao of nature. Sending a part of great Dao like this into Ji Hap’s primordial spirit?
With Ji Hap’s current cultivation, not to mention containing great Dao of sun of this world, only a slight touch of it would shatter Ji Hao primordial spirit into thousands of bits, wouldn’t it?
“Old man, don’t be ridiculous! I am now…” Ji Has was scared so badly that even his voice quivered slightly.
“Don’t be afraid, you have me…I worked so hard to take this great Dao of sun out, only for helping you. You cannot turn all my efforts into waste!” The mysterious man gave a resonant growl while swinging his arms up and immediately, a petal of that enormous flower of great Dao dimmed down. Meanwhile, a splendid, immense sun that was a million miles in radius drifted out silently, transformed into a tremendous golden stream and swiftly surged into the spot between Ji Hao’s eyebrows.
Ji Has lost his eyesight and felt his whole body was boiling hot. Afterward, he fainted. Chapter 661 – Pirate Invasion

6000 li away from the Shang Continent’s Estuary, a fleet of pirates quietly advanced in the Sea of Energy.
“It is currently the period where the Shang Continent is the most empty, and also our best chance.” The one who spoke was a tall and skinny man, his face had a smile that was not a smile, with squinted eyes, he looked like a fox. The East Divergent Fox, Fu Dong Ku, was an intelligent man and known as the wise general of the East Divergent Continent, proficient in dangerous and unconventional moves, always appearing unexpectedly, he was a man hard to fathom.
“But with this, we will become enemies with the Shang Continent.” His adjutant’s face was filled with worry, Fu Dong Ku was a man who played on the edge, but his adjutant was a cautious man, one who sought to protect his own life.
Although the two of them had differing opinions, Fu Dong Ku never changed his adjutant. Fu Dong Ku knew of his own dangerous gambits, and needed a meticulous and cautious man to pull him down from his absurdity. His own adjutant had average strength, but was a careful and steady man, and was the best compliment to him.
“We are a group of pirates, since when did pirates and the Shang Continent ever see eye to eye?” Fu Dong Ku waved his hand with a look of innocence.
His adjutant did not know whether to cry or laugh with his superior’s attitude: “They will find out.”
“So what if they find out?” Fu Dong Ku laughed: “Who told the Shang Continent to fight so well? But the Pontoon Bridge that everyone is vying for, if he wants to gift it out, he also has to prove that he has the qualifications to. If not, to give an ownerless land to others as a favor, that is truly thinking too much. If not for the White Sands Continent, Bai Family, and the Xu Ji Worldwide Commerce, what’s the Shang Continent?”
His Adjutant did not know how to refute him, and spoke after thinking a long while: “Actually, this alliance is not a bad choice for us too.”
“Not a bad choice?” Fu Dong Ku laughed: “Yes, It is not a bad choice, after calculating, what can we get, 12.5% or 10%? But why take 12.5%? The White Sands Continent is strong, the Bai Family has deep roots and connections, and the Xu Ji Worldwide Commerce is even richer, but they are too far. To extend their hands, hehe, that will be tiring. Being mediators isn’t easy either, if the Shang Continent is destroyed, they can only watch and sigh. This is our territory, this piece of meat is not for them to decide.”
The adjutant, who was from the East Divergent Continent, agreed, but his cautious nature still spoke: “But the Shang Continent is truly powerful.”
“So we always go back to this point!” Fu Dong Ku clapped his hands and exclaimed.
Although he had decided for a sneak attack, but he did not dare to underestimate the Shang Continent at all. In truth, he was fearful of them, the Shang Continent had defeated the the Vast Star Continent in a few battles, on the surface it might just be because of two points, homeground territory and underestimation, but Fu Dong Ku still saw many more things.
Even Bu Zi Fei was held captive, and surrendered to the Shang Continent. Underestimating the enemy was no different than seeking death.
And his spies came back with information that made Fu Dong Ku even more fearful. He had never heard of any army of any continent that would train in the Sea of Energy. Such a fearsome army, if they were to hold even more sources of wealth, who would possibly be able to stop them?
Fu Dong Ku did not want to clash head on with the Shang Continent, but he did not want the Shang Continent to obtain the Pontoon Bridge so easily as well, and immediately thought of a way. The Shang Continent had left its nest, and it was at its weakest, such a time, even blowing cold air would cause the Shang Continent to fall.
The production of Black Gold in the Shang Continent was no longer any secret, the Xu Ji Worldwide Commerce and the Shang Continent’s collaboration further proved this point.
Fu Dong Ku wanted to make the Shang Continent decide, ~Black Gold or the Pontoon Bridge, which do you want?~
Suddenly, the alarm on the warship sounded out.,
Fu Dong Ku immediately stood up and bellowed: “What’s going on?”
“Sentries! We met with sentries!”
Fu Dong Ku’s face changed, sentries! How could the Shang Continent place sentries at such a distance!
The Shang Continent’s cautiousness and precaution far exceeded Fu Dong Ku’s anticipation, but he then laughed, because that revealed the weakness of having insufficient strength.
He saw the Shang Continent’s sentry, he was enveloped with light aura, whom upon seeing the fleet immediately escaped without hesitation. This sentry seemed to not be affected by the Sea of Energy, he ran extremely quickly.
Fu Dong Ku became calm again, since they were caught, there was no meaning on sneaking in.
“Army, advance quickly!”
Fu Dong Ku gave the order without hesitation. The Shang Continent did not have any organized army, and since he was going in with a storm, Fu Dong Ku had confidence in himself.
Tang Tian did not know that Fu Dong Ku was near the Shang Continent, but he could sense an abnormality. He initially thought that his proposal would be successful, and never thought that it would turn out not as smooth, that everyone chose to keep quiet and watch from the sidelines.
“My apologies, Mister Meng, until now I have not received any reply from any families.” From the bronze plate was Eldest Young Noble, the current Continent Lord of White Sands Continent, spoke apologetically, he initially thought that the name of White Sands Continent would give him some face with the other continents, but he did not expect everyone to be indifferent.
“It’s fine.” Tang Tian consoled him: “They will soon understand the situation.”
“I truly….” Eldest Young Noble felt embarrassed.
“Since their appetite is so big, then let us test their teeth.” Tang Tian’s voice was laced with a thread of killing intent.
Eldest Young Noble spoke: “Commander Suo Bi has said it, our White Sands will always be Mister Meng’s friend, if you need our cooperation, just let us know. We will help Mister Meng and give some pressure to those greedy people.”
In this matter, White Sands and the Shang Continent stood together. The refusal of the few families made the White Sands Continent rather annoyed. He and Suo Bi had specially discussed about the matter, if they were able to facilitate and help with the Pontoon Bridge, to the recovering White Sands Continent, it would definitely be good news to soothe the citizens.
“If I need your continent’s help, I will definitely not be courteous!” Tang Tian laughed.
After finishing the conversation with the White Sands Continent, Tang Tian did not think about asking the other two mediators, he believed the result would be the same. Within expectations, not long later, Bai Yue and Xu JIn contacted Tang Tian to inform him of the bad news.
Bai Yue and Xu Jin were in the same plight.
Tang Tian knew what the other continents were thinking. The Pontoon Bridge was a big piece of meat, if they wanted to share with the few powerhouses, the share that each family would get would not be big. These continents were not satisfied with a 12.5% stake in the bridge.
Their appetites were truly big.
Tang Tian sneered, he was not someone new to the battlefield, and clearly understood what the others were waiting for. No one thought that the Shang Continent could hold the Pontoon Bridge. Furthermore, Tang Tian had initiated sharing the Pontoon Bridge, causing them to see it as lack of confidence. If they did not have enough strength, why would they want to share the Pontoon Bridge?
~Nowadays, wanting to gift things to people isn’t easy too.~
Tang Tian felt helpless.
Just at that moment, Ye Lao Er barged in like the wind: “Boss! Boss! Pirates! There are Pirates!”
“Pirates?” Tang Tian squinted his eyes.
Ever since they finished the training in the Sea of Energy, Ye Lao Er and the rest were addicted to such high intensity training. To the disciples of the five families who bear the weight of hatred in their blood, their optimal choice in everything was to quickly raise their own strength. Whether it was danger or the intensity, they did not care.
They were overly excessive, everyday they would run out of the stronghold and train bitterly in the Sea of Energy. For the sake of attaining even higher intensity, they would run far and wide.
Fu Dong Ku mistook them as scouts.
Their use were truly like scouts, they were scattered to all the regions around the Estuary of the Shang Continent. Ye Lao Er flew out the furthest, and was the one who scouted the pirates.
He was recently excited because of Master Jing Hao. For someone who was just a few years older than him, but yet so much stronger than him and was able to defeat him in a few moves, from being unconvinced, Ye Lao Er was defeated multiple times till he was sincerely convinced and ready to concede. What he didn’t expect was that even the powerful Master Jing Hao would also run into the Sea of Energy and temper himself seriously.
~If Master Jing Hao was doing such a thing, what kind of excuse could they give to skive?~
Jing Hao’s determination became a role model for the three families in the stronghold.
The Sagittarius Constellation and Aries Constellation were brought away by Crane and Ling Xu, while the remaining three were given to Jing Hao by Tang Tian.
Tang Tian felt that the five families were suitable to walk the path of how Heaven’s Road people fought, as armies were not suited for them. Tang Tian retrieved many spirit cards from Three Spirits City relating to the five constellations, although their martial techniques were not powerful, they were extremely suitable for them. They were filled with plenty of energy, and in their hands, the low grade martial techniques could become extremely powerful. Spirit technique cards were not suitable for them as they required enlightenment on laws, which was still far for them.
Jing Hao used a simple method to teach them, sparring.
The ruthless Drunk on Saint Blood became a nightmare for the disciples in the training period, but Jing Hao’s reputation soared. Adding that Jing Hao was a good role model, he quickly became deeply respected.
Jing Hao noticed the energy vortex ahead of him.
It spanned roughly 10m long and was mixed with a myriad of colors, faintly rotating. Such an energy vortex was common in the Sea of Energy, while the large energy vortices could span over 10 thousand li. Such monstrosities would be extremely dangerous to go close to.
Jing Hao watched it for three days, his gaze fully focused without moving.
“You’ll be able to do it.”
