Du Ze goes with Nie Li to the Holy Orchid Institute and sits outside the Heavenly Sacred Border with Lu Piao.[34]

Du Ze's Cultivation:

He uses this time to integrate with the Abyss Tiger. Since he is able to do integrate with a demon spirit, it is confirmed that he is at least a 1 star silver rank demon spiritualist.[34]

Sacred Family & Dark Guild:

After Nie Li emerged with Xiao Ning'er from the Heavenly Sacred Border, the group heads back to the City Lord's mansion. On the way a group of 27 dark clad people attacked them. Du Ze is able to hold his own in the fight against some of the silver rank experts. This is his first fight with his new Abyss Tiger.[35] After they defeated them, Nie Li captured the two leaders and took them to the Alchemy Association to be interrogated.[36]

Du Ze's Family:

After all the excitement, Du Ze returned to his family's village. Everyone in the family is very proud of Du Ze and see him as their hope for a brighter future. His efforts have already greatly lessened the financial burden they feel. Du Rong, the current patriarch of the family, has already chosen Due Ze to succeeded him. As a token of this, he passes on the family's treasure the Fire Qilin Jade Waist Pendant. There are also many marriage offers for Du Ze, but he refuses them saying that these families are two-face, as they shunned the Du Family when they were in decline.[37]

The Ten Millennium Spatial Array Arc

Ye Han:

Du Ze was a witness to Ye Han and Nie Li's fight at the Holy Orchid Institute.[38] During the fight he was slightly worried about Nie Li, however by watching him fight he was able to gain insight into his own fighting abilities.[39]

Xiao Xue:

After Nie Li defeated Ye Han, he left with everyone to investigate a nearby ancient construct. Once they got close they met Xiao Xue, who was looking for Lu Piao.[40]

Demon Beasts:

As soon as Nie Li gets close, he is able to recognize the construct as the Ten Millennium Spatial Array. It did not take long for him to figure out how to enter the origin barrier that protects it by using the inscriptions on the surrounding columns. After the group enters the barrier, they find themselves in a different space, resembling an endless dark forest that is filled with dangerous demon beasts. Almost as soon as they arrive they are attacked by Scarlet Ghosts. Though not very strong individually, Nie Li knows that they tend to swarm in huge numbers and immediately told everyone to run. He then merged with his Shadow Devil and quickly struck down any Scarlet Devils that got too close.[41]
In the distance Lu Piao spotted a light that Nie Li believed to be a Netherlamp Behemoth demon beast. Everyone was growing tired and would soon be overwhelmed by the Scarlet Ghosts, so Nie Li told them to move towards the dangerous Netherlamp Behemoth. This giant demon beast scared the hoard of Scarlet Ghosts away. Even though it is a very large and slow demon beast, it uses hundreds of extremely fast and strong tongues that secrete a mild hallucination when it coils around its victims. Xiao Xue was caught by the tongues but was quickly cut free by Lu Piao. The group rushed to get out of the range of the beast while Nie Li aimed his Yin-Yang blasts at the Netherlamp Behemoth's mouth. Xiao Ning'er was caught by the tongues and rescued by Nie Li while the others continued to run.[42]
From a distance Du Ze and the others saw a large light ray attack that hit the Netherlamp Behemoth and did great damage to it. Directly afterward a strange gigantic Flying Fish demon beast carried it off. Everyone ran back to find Nie Li and Xiao Ning'er and make sure they were alright.[43]
Afterwards, the group continued to travel deeper into the space towards the lights of a village. Nie Li used some of the Scarlet Ghost's blood to make Blood Burst Magic Bottles. After being thrown they cause a large explosion, killing hundreds of Scarlet Ghosts and keeping them from getting close to the group. While attacking them this way, they discovered that some of these demon beasts had Blood Crystals in them. This makes the Scarlet Ghosts stronger and more aggressive. These Blood Crystals are also useful for cultivators, so they hunted the Scarlet Ghosts until they each had a crystal.[44]


While traveling deeper into the space the group came across a strange monument that gave off a great pressure. Only Nie Li could approach it. Du Ze waited with the rest of the group while Nie Li investigated the monument.[44]
After Nie Li returned, the group continued to move towards the village. When they got close, Nie Li told them to wait so that he could check out the situation with his Shadow Devil.[45]

Silver Winged Family:

After awhile Nie Li returned to the group and they continued until they reached the village.[45] Nie Li went on ahead to scout it out and discovered the Silver Winged Family's village. After establishing a rapport with them he returned and brought the rest of the group to the village. He had promised to cure the family's hereditary illness in exchange for their safety. Though the situation made him nervous, he trusted that Nie Li would be able to safely get them out of the Silver Winged Family's grasp.[46]

Duan Juan:

Since Nie Li had asked to test the medicine on Duan Juan, he was brought to the courtyard where they were staying. Nie Li offered him a way to get revenge on the Silver Winged Family by awakening his dragon blood and forcing a jump in his abilities. Despite his warning that it will be very painful, Duan Jian readily agrees and swears loyalty to Nie Li. Nie Li then uses Acupuncture to start the process.[47]

Getting the Best of the Silver Winged Family Arc

The Group's Cultivation:

Wile staying at the Silver Winged Family's village they had access to a large number of refined Blood Crystals. Using these Xiao Ning'er was the first to break through into 1 star gold rank.[47] Nie Li and the others soon follow. Duan Juan manages to survive the dragon blood awakening process and his strength does indeed surge from his previous 3 star gold rank to nearly legend.[48]

Nie Li:

Nie Li is then informed that Sikong Yi, the patriarch of the Silver Winged Family, has found the Stones of Light that they need to return back to Glory City. However, he will not let Du Ze and the others go with him and instead send five gold rank experts to escort him and Duan Jian. Before leaving, Nie Li tells Du Ze and the others that in ten days he will return for them and they must follow a specific path to a meeting point near the village.[49]

Silver Winged Family's Village:

After the ten days time, Nie Li activated the hidden Flame Explosion inscription patterns that he had previously placed around the village. While the endless series of explosions rocked the village; Du Ze, Lu Piao, Xiao Ning'er, and the others met up with Nie Li and Duan Jian at the predetermined location.[50] Rather then attempt to escape from the village like Sikong Yi would expect, Nie Li had them hide out close by in the woods. He then once again went off on his own to help the slaves at the mine.[51]

The Teleportation Array and the Old Man:

After hiding out in the woods and learning more about the thirteen families in this realm, Nie Li decides it is time to return. However, just as they are about to activate the teleportation array, a Mysterious Old Man shows up. He comes out of no where and walks by the group while staggering and mumbling incoherently. After he passes them by, Nie Li places the Stones of Light into the array in order to return to Glory City. Duan Jian decides to go with them, as he has nothing tying him to this place except his revenge.[52]

The Demon Horde Attacks Arc

Demon Beast Horde:

He is with Nie Li and helps with the preparations for the defensive lines against the Demon Beast Horde. When the lines are breached he fights along side Nie Li, Lu Piao, Duan Jian, and everyone else in the group to defend Glory City. [53]

Nie Li, Lu Piao, Xiao Xue, Dian Jian, and the other three:

After the battle is over he can see the loss and destruction that the demon beast horde left. He agrees with Nie Li that they need to work hard to get stronger to protect everyone.[54]

Taking down the Sacred Family Arc

It is unclear if Du Ze was at the meeting of Glory City experts at the City Lord's Mansion. Though he is not from a powerful family his own strength certainly qualifies him as well as his connection with Nie Li. Either way he did not play an active part in the events that occured.[55]

Training in the Mountains Arc

Nie Li:

After the battle with the Sacred Family and Dark Guild is over Du Ze receives a letter telling him that Nie Li has decided to leave Glory City in order to train and check out the Dark Guild's base. Like Lu Piao, he wishes that he could have gone with Nie Li but he realizes that they would just be a burden to him. He is determined to become stronger so that he can stand with Nie Li in the future.[56]

Into the Nether Realm Arc

Du Ze's Cultivation:

While Nie Li was away from Glory City Du Ze and the rest of his friends focused on their training. They also visited the Dark Ruins and some other places to train, making their cultivation soar leaps and bounds.[57]

Yu Yan:

After Nie Li's return to Glory City, Du Ze was one of the people he gathered in Ye Ziyun's courtyard. He introduced everyone to the Spiritual God Yu Yan and explained to them who she is.[58]

The Group's Cultivation:

Nie Li then asked everyone to help in gathering demon spirits and some other materials. Two days later they returned to the yard and Nie Li uses the items to set down the Demon Spirit Devouring Technique. This technique will release more than enough soul force and power of law for all of them to raise their strength by leaps and bounds. Du Ze, and the rest of his friends, then start to cultivate within the activated array around him.[59]
Du Ze's cultivation advanced very quickly as he moved through the levels of gold rank.[60] While still cultivating in the array he noticed strange lightning energy attacking his soul realm and merged with his demon spirit to defend against it.[61] Somehow this pure energy altered the original array and formed a Soul Array between Nie Li, Du Ze, and the others. By the time he left the array he was able to become a 5 star gold rank demon spiritualist.[62]

Duan Jian's Revenge Arc

Nie Li:

Nie Li travels with Duan Jian to the Abyss Prison Realm to complete his need for revenge. When he returns to Glory City, Nie Li gathered everyone together and tells them that they were to leave tomorrow and head to the Nether Realm.[63]

Luqian Sha and Luqian Mo:

When the group had almost reached the entrance of the Nether Realm, Luqian Sha and Luqian Mo, appeared. They are the two high level legend rank demon beasts that have spent the last 10,000 years guarding over Yu Yan in the Black Spring. Nie Li and Yu Yan start to fight Luqian Sha while Duan Jian and Luo Ming fight Luqian Mo.[64]
Du Ze was not strong enough to help in the fight and just stands guard nearby, however he was able to provide Nie Li and Duan Jian with more soul force trough the Soul array.[64] Afterwards, everyone is shocked by the power of Nie Li's Draconic Bombs, Yu Yan apologizes for endangering everyone, and Nie Li searches the bodies. He gives Du Ze the legend rank Silvermooon Long Sword that he finds.[65]

Exploring the Nine-Layered Deathlands Arc

Luo Xiao:

After arriving in the Nether Realm, the group heads to the entrance of the Nine-Layered Deathlands where they meet Luo Xiao.[66] They then head into the first layer of the deathlands in the search for Spiritual Origin Fruit, but get separated by a Fog of Misleading.[67]

Duan Jian, Lu Piao, Wei Nan, Zhang Ming, Zhu Xiangjun, and Xiao Yue:

After some time wandering around the Nine-Layered Deathlands, Du Ze was able to meetup with Duan Jian, Lu Piao, Wei Nan, Zhang Ming, Zhu Xiangjun, and Xiao Yue. Lu Piao got thoroughly beat by a group after having tried to take their Spiritual Origin Fruit. So when Duan Jian showed up he returned the favor. He continued to hit them until they fell and stayed down. After securing their first Spiritual Origin Fruit they continued traveling deeper into the Deathlands while fighting the occasional Skeleton.[68]

Nie Li:

After two more days wandering the deathlands, everyone was finally reunited. At this time they had found eleven Spiritual Origin Fruits and decided to return back to the Jade Seal Family's camp at the entrance. They each ate a fruit and began to cultivate, becoming very close to legend rank.[69]

The Master of Nether's Disciple Arc

Luo Xiao:

When the door to the seventh layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands opened, a crowed of hundreds of thousands of demigod, legend, and black gold rank experts rushed through. Du Ze was there when Luo Xiao asked Nie Li to be careful and suggested that they enter towards the back of the line.[70]

Lord of Nether's servants:

After entering the seventh layer, a group of powerful cultivators appeared and announced the first test.[70] A water ball formed in front of each person. It was a test of soul force control called the Sphere of Reverse Images. To pass the test, one must feed the sphere soul force through small threads, making it grow at least one foot in diameter. However, the visible threads are fake. Nie li tells his friends that to pass the test they need to sense out the true threads. Du Ze was able to make the sphere grow to five feet, passing the test.[71]
Once all those that passed were teleported to the eight layer, the Lord of Nether's servants told them that the second test would take place in the nearby Black Infernal Tower. Inside that tower are supreme black flames and all kinds of demon beasts. Although the demon beasts have been chained, they can still discharge powerful energy. They are to cultivate inside that environment for ten days. Those who can reach the Anatta Mental State of cultivation will have passed the test.[71]
The black flames can attack a person's soul realm directly. Du Ze watched as several experts who did not have a strong enough soul, crippled their cultivation trying to force their way in. As they approached, Nie Li cautiously asked if everyone was alright. Because of their stronger then normal souls, Du Ze, along with everyone else, said that they were fine.[72]

Duan Jian:

After entering the tower, Duan Jian's body ignited in black flames. Though it resembled what had happened to the cultivators whose soul were too weak, in actuality it was the exact opposite. Duan Jian's Black dragon body was so compatible with the black flames that it was absorbing them and strengthening his soul realm on its own.[72]

Du Ze's Cultivation:

The group continued up to the second floor, where the pressure felt by the black flames was far greater. Since Duan Jian could easily cultivate by absorbing the flames without even trying, he instead stood guard to protect everyone. Du Ze and the rest sat down and began to cultivate. He slowly absorbed the black flames, strengthening his body and soul.[72] As Nie Li's soul realm surged and broke through into Legend rank. The majestic wave of profound law energy flowed through the soul array, overwhelming him and causing him to jump directly to 2 star legend rank.[7]

Celestial Qilin:

Afterward the group also headed up to the third floor, where they found a terrifyingly powerful Celestial Qilin chained up.[7] Nie Li attempted to bargain with the demon beast in order to have it willingly integrate with Du Ze. The reason was because the Celestial Qilin would be the perfect demon spirit match for Du Ze's Attribute and Form. When the creature refused, Nie Li used some of Duan Jian's blood, which contains the energy from the powerful black flames, to form an inscription pattern around it. This pattern attracted more of the black flames to this location in the tower.[73]
After cursing and threatening each other, Nie Li and the Celestial Qilin finally seemed to come to an agreement. Nie Li stopped the black flame inscription pattern in exchange for some of the Celestial Qilin's blood. However, the demon beast tossed the basin of his blood short in the hopes of tricking Nie Li into coming close enough that he could attack him.[74] Nie Li first merged with his Fanged Panda and threw a Yin Yang Blast and Draconic Bombs at the Celestial Qilin, then he switched to his Shadow Devil. While the others distracted it with various types of attacks Nie Li was able to sneak close enough to grab the basin of blood and toss it to Du Ze. In a rage the Celestial Qilin rained dozens of lightning strikes at him. However, Nie Li simply used his void form to avoid them and make his way outside the reach of the demon beast.[75]
Now that he had its blood, Nie Li drew an array to restrained the Celestial Qilin so that it could not attack them. He then drew a Soul Seal to transform the demon beast's body and integrate it with Du Ze's soul Realm. The seal can only be removed by Du Ze, insuring that the Celestial Qilin can not harm him, and Du Ze promised to free him after fifty years.[75]

Nie Li:

After advancing up to the fourth floor of the tower Du Ze could not stand the pressure from the black flames to advance higher. Along with everyone else in the group besides Nie Li and Yu Yan, he stayed to cultivate on this floor.[76]

The Lord of Nether:

After the test ended, Du Ze and everyone else were teleported to the ninth layer. Once there, he met the Lord of Nether as well as the other six ambassadors.[77] The Lord of Nether then explained that they had all been chosen by one of the ambassadors as a disciple and will be heading to the Draconic Ruins Realm in three months to train. Once there they will not be able to return for five years. They must also form a Soul Seal with their new master to insure loyalty, as betrayal was considered a capital offense. Du Ze, Cang Ming, and Hua Huo ended up forming a soul seal with Tian Hun.[78]

Leaving for the Draconic Ruins Realm Arc

Nie Li:

Before heading back to Glory City to say goodbye, Nie Li asked for everyone to go with him to the Endless Desert in search of the Desert Palace.[78] After entering the desert, both Nie Li and Ye Ziyun becomes lost in thought. Suddenly, with no explanation, Ye Ziyun slaps Nie Li.[79]
The group continues to search for the mysterious Desert Palace for many days and even question if it really exists. Nie Li then enters a profound trance-like state which leads them to some ancient ruins that had long since been destroyed. Nie Li seemed to be confused and started to walk among the ruins when he suddenly fell unconscious. The group then returns to Glory City where Nie Li remained in a coma for about a month. During this time, either Ye Ziyun or Xiao Ning'er remained at his side continuously, watching over him and trying to help him recover.[80] As soon as Nie Li regained conscious, Du Ze rushed over to see him and was relieved to find that he was alright.[81]

Demon Lord:

Suddenly, the loud sounds of a nearby fight drew their attention.[81] They found the Demon Lord attacking Ye Mo, destroying many of the buildings in the City Lord's Mansion.[82] Du Ze joined Nie Li, Ye Zong, and the others in supporting Ye Mo in suppressing the Demon Lord. However, after Nie Li started to attack with the Thunder God’s Meteorite Sword, the Demon Lord felt danger and changed his tactics. Instead of facing it head on, he evaded its strike and charged in close. He grabbed Ye Zong and overpowered him with the power of Hell.[82]

Ye Zong:

They were only able to helplessly watch as Ye Zong bravely continued to strike out at the Demon Lord, only to have his right arm brutally ripped off.[82] The Demon Lord again demanded the Demon Spirit Stone that Ye Mo held, and proceeded to rip off Ye Zong's other arm. With no other way to save is son's life, Ye Mo threw the demon spirit stone to the Demon Lord. However, the Demon Lord then pierced through Ye Zong's chest, fatally wounding him. Knowing that his end was near, Ye Zong activated the Snow Wind Family's self destruction technique, turning himself to ice. This destroyed his soul, but allowed him to cause heavy damages to the Demon Lord as well.[83]
Du Ze then watched as Nie Li executed a secret technique that quickly raised his strength and struck out at the Demon Lord. Everyone hastily moved out of the way as wave after wave of terrifying lightning energy struck the Demon Lord, destroying his arms, legs, and even his head. However, his life was saved by a Draconic Ruins Realm artifact armor as he quickly flew away.[83] Afterward, the whole of Glory City grieved at the loss of their City Lord.[84]

Hua Huo:

After a month they headed back to the Nine-Layered Deathlands, as it was time to separate and follow their individual masters into the Draconic Ruins Realm.[85] After saying goodbye to Nie Li, Hua Huo, who was chosen by the same master as Du Ze, took the initiative to greet him. Though he did not quite know how to respond, he followed her as their group headed into the Draconic Ruins Realm.[86]

Becoming the Sect Master Arc

Nie Li:

After over a year in their separate sects, Nie li received the heaven defying Divine Phaseless Fruits from Emperor Tian Yuan, and refined a powerful Divine Elixir. He then used his many Sky Origin Divine Clan slaves to distribute the elixir to Du Ze and his other friends.[87]
After becoming the Sect master of the Divine Feathers Sect, Nie Li also had Lu Piao send 100 Dao of Dragon Realm experts to support Du Ze.[88]

Ying Yueru:

Knowing that she will soon be hunted down by the Sage Emperor's Deity servants, Ying Yueru decides to visit Du Ze and Nie Li's other companions and give them advice.[89]

The Divine Feathers Sect's Rise Arc

Nie Li:

During this time, Du Ze keeps in contact with Nie Li and works to build up his cultivation and power within the Sky Origin Sect. Though he hasn't revealed much, he now secretly controls a powerful force.[90]

Abilities and Equipment

Du Ze was blessed with a yellow soul realm so his starting soul force was already at 52. When his soul realm was tested he was found to have the Heavenly Thundercloud form with the lightning fire attribute His soul force was able to grow at a good rate because of how well his form and attribute match.[18]

After he acquires a regular supply of elixirs from Nie Li as well as using Purple Haze Grass, his cultivation further grew. Though his soul force does not surge as easily as others he works hard on his cultivation.[25]

After another month focused on training with Nie Li, Lu Piao, and the three others. He was already able to reach 500 in strength, reaching 5 Star bronze rank and over 500 in spiritual power.[91]

After a month he meets up with Nie Li at the City Lord's mansion and receives a Abyss Tiger god level growth rate demon spirit. At some point he had broken through to silver rank, and is able to integrate the demon spirit into his soul realm, though his actual progress into silver rank has not been revealed.[34]

During the trip into the Ten Millennium Spatial Array, Nie Li came across a large amount of Blood Crystals in the Silver Winged Family's village. With the help of the crystals, Du Ze was able to break into 1 Star Gold rank.[92]

Through his own training as well as the Demon Spirit Devouring Technique, Du Ze reaches 5 star gold rank.[62]

During the trip to the Nether Realm, everyone's cultivation quickly advanced with the assistance of the Soul Array, reaching 4 Star Black Gold rank. After entering the Nine-Layered Deathlands, Du Ze ate one of the Spiritual Origin Fruit which raised his cultivation near to legend rank.[69]
