— Phoenix Spirit
The Creation God of Elements, one of the Four Creation Gods born from the primal powers of the Ancestral God, possessed the most extreme power of the elements within the Primal Chaos Dimension. He was able to perfectly control, resist, and absorb six basic elemental powers: Darkness, Wind, Fire, Lightning, Water, and Earth. (Darkness was hidden from the other Gods).
The Heretic God Legacy is the legacy left behind by him, one of the most powerful Creation Gods from the Primordial Era. The Heretic God Legacy is obtained through a single drop of the Heretic God's Indestructible Blood. This drop of immortal blood embodied the source of his power. There can only be one inheritor of the Heretic God's powers because he eliminated his own divine powers and six hundred thousand years of lifespan to create this drop of blood. He gave up his life in order to leave behind one final hope for the future.
The drop of immortal blood includes a memory imprint explaining everything about what comes with accepting the legacy. After accepting the Legacy your current profound veins will be destroyed and rebuilt with the profound veins of the Heretic God, meaning you will lose your past cultivation, starting over. But once the profound veins are rebuilt and all profound entrances are open you will have access to the Seven Gates of Heretic God's Secret Arts and its corresponding Profound Skills. You will also be able to use the Heretic God Seeds once you have located them to obtain perfect immunity from the elements.
Combining with the powers of the Heaven Smiting Devil Emperor, the Heretic God created the “Devil God Forbidden Tome” which could go against the laws of nature. Afterwards, because the Heaven Smiting Devil Emperor was mercilessly exiled by Creation God Mo E, he became disheartened, gave up his Creation God title, and called himself the “Heretic God”. The “Devil God Forbidden Tome” was also renamed the “Heretic God Arts”.
300 years ago, someone found an ancient book while exploring a dangerous ruin from the Ancient Era. It described the Heretic God and his legacy left in the drop of immortal blood. Many people gained knowledge about this record and started to madly search for the blood of the Heretic God. The legacy was actually found and was fought over by everyone in the Realm of the Gods. It was eventually taken by Jasmine who was poisoned by the Absolute God Slaying Poison in the process.
Since Jasmine didn't want to lose her cultivation, she chose to not use the drop, but to seek out the Heretic God Seeds instead. Jasmine's body eventually succumbed to the poison, but before her soul dissipated, she found Yun Che, the Sky Poison Pearl's current owner. Jasmine later gave the drop to a crippled Yun Che in order for him to become strong enough to help her rebuild her body.
Heretic God's Profound Veins
Once the inheritor receives the Immortal Blood of the Heretic God it will automatically destroy the current Profound Veins (and erase all your current Profound Strength) and rebuild a new set of Profound Veins, the Heretic God's Profound Veins.
At first sight, the Heretic God Profound Veins are exactly like normal Profound Veins, and their true strength does not appear until either all Profound Entrances are open which will grant the use of the Seven Gates or until you acquire one of the Heretic God Seeds which grant complete immunity to the corresponding element.
Heretic God Seeds
Five Heretic God's seeds are spread through Heretic God’s Five Secret Grounds that correspond to the five main elements. Only those who had inherited the Heretic God's power would be able to find them. Each Seed will transform his body into a Spirit Heretic Body that allows for complete control, absolute immunity, and increased affinity to the corresponding elements. Contrary to what was believed by powerful figures such as Jasmine and the Golden Crow Spirit, there was a sixth Heretic God seed, Darkness. With the Wind Seed's discovery, the Five Secret Grounds information is confirmed to be a hoax purposely left by the Heretic God.
The appearance of the seeds is a very small and round bead, close to the size of a common marble. Each sparkles with the color of its corresponding element.
- Fire Seed (火种子) - RED
- Water Seed (水种子) - BLUE
- Lightning Seed (雷种子) - PURPLE
- Darkness Seed (黑暗种子) - BLACK
- Wind Seed (风种子) - DARK GREEN
- Earth Seed (沉渊之种)
Yun Che can still be harmed with elemental arts attacks. Although he can block the entire corresponding element, he cannot block the profound strength behind it. This is akin to immunity to a weapon's sharp edge, but still hit by its blunt force.
Heretic God's Secret Arts
Only someone who has the power of the Heretic God can use Heretic God’s Secret Arts (邪神诀) because it requires the Profound Veins of the Heretic God. Another name for the secret arts is The Seven Gates. The inheritor gains access to The Seven Gates by opening all 54 Profound Entrances. With all Profound Entrances open, that person will have seven additional imprints in their profound veins arranged in the Seven Stars of the Ursa Major.
The gates and secret arts can automatically be used as they do not require cultivating. The Heretic God’s Secret Arts highest realm is when all the seven gates open. The attribute of the Heretic God’s Secret Arts abilities are classified as “Berserk”. Opening each gate would increase the power of the user but also increase the stress on the body. If the body cannot handle the realm, then the profound veins would explode and the body would disintegrate, resulting in death.
The nature of the Heretic God's Secret Arts is "Berserk". The first realm’s Heretic Soul, can make your profound energy instantly increase two to three-fold; the second realm’s Burning Heart, can make your profound energy increase by three to four-fold; the third realm’s Purgatory, can increase it by four to five times; the fourth realm’s Rumbling Heaven, can increase it by five to six times. The fifth realm’s Hell Monarch can increase it by six to seven times.
In Yun Che's Profound Veins appeared seven extra imprints similar to profound entrances; It is aligned in the arrangement of the Seven Stars of the Ursa Major. Those are used to activate the Seven Realms of Heretic God’s Secret Arts: The Seven Gates and their corresponding Profound Skills.
The forbidden tome and divine arts created by the Primordial Heretic God. The art can cause profound strength to instantly surge, violating all common sense. Advanced attribute reversal and overturning natural laws. There are a total of seven realms. At each realm, there exists a corresponding Heretic God profound skill. These profound skills do not need to be cultivated and existed directly within the Heretic God’s Profound Veins, forming the seven gates that could be freely opened and closed. Each time a gate is opened, the Heretic God Arts will increase by one realm. However, this is exceptionally taxing on the body and profound veins. Opening the fifth gate is the limit of a mortal body.
Key Info - Profound Level: （S＞A＞B＞C＞D＞E＞F＞〇= none）
1st Realm: Heretic Soul (邪魄)
The entry realm. It is simply just the increase of the profound energy and causes an amplification of 2-3 times. There are no obvious changes physically. Yun Che could use this gate safely from as early as the Nascent Profound Realm and can maintain it as a normal state as of reaching the True Profound Realm.
Falling Moon Sinking Star (陨月沉星) - Burst Attack. Heretic God first style. The Heretic God’s basic offensive profound technique. It causes profound energy to explode in a small area. Medium energy consumption but its power level is still rather strong. Its power comes from suddenly compressing the profound energy in one’s body, and bursting it outwards with ten times the usual power.
"Falling Moon Sinking Star" implies that when the Heretic God used this skill, it was enough to destroy both the sun and moon.
Energy Consumption: Medium
2nd Realm: Burning Heart (焚心)
When used, this gate amplifies the user's Profound Energy by 3-4 fold and causes it to appear as a light red color. Yun Che could barely survive its opening at the early True Profound Realm and can maintain it as though it was a normal status from the Earth Profound Realm onwards.
Sealing Cloud Locking Sun (封云锁日) - Extreme Defense. Heretic God Second style. It instantly increases defensive profound strength. It activates a special Evil God Barrier that can instantly appear and be maintained for long periods. It can be used on one’s self or on others. It is currently Yun Che’s strongest defensive profound technique. Relatively large energy consumption.
Energy Consumption: Medium
3rd Realm: Purgatory (炼狱)
When this gate is open the user's Profound energy is amplified 4-5 fold and appears scarlet red. While active, it can slightly affect one’s state of mind. Yun Che could barely survive its opening at the late True Profound Realm but was severely wounded. At 7th level Earth Profound Realm, he could activate it for a maximum of 20 breaths. After Yun Che's Dragon God’s bloodline reached the concentration of one-thousandth and he broke through the 4th Stage of the Great Way of the Buddha, he could wield Purgatory relatively easily. At 10th Level Sky Profound Realm, he could maintain it for a relatively long period of time, the only side-effect being accelerated exhaustion.  After reaching 8th Level Divine Tribulation Realm, he could passively maintain it as a normal state.
Destroying Sky Decimating Earth (滅天绝地) - Merciless Destruction. Heretic God Third style. Creates a profound energy explosion over a large area. Regardless whether it is its radius or power, it far exceeds that of Falling Moon Sinking Star. However, its consumption is massive and it takes a rather long time to activate and to recover from.
Energy Consumption: Immense
4th Realm: Rumbling Heaven (轰天)
Rumbling Heaven (轰天) Profound energy is a deep scarlet. While using it, one would be easily irritated and their killing intent surges. Initially, at 6th Level Emperor Profound, opening this gate caused Yun Che to lose half his life in two breaths of time. At 6th Level Tyrant Profound Realm, he could at most maintain it for one moment. At 10th Level Sovereign Profound, he could strike a maximum of 15 times with the Heaven Smithing Devil Slayer Sword while using Rumbling Heaven. At 8th Level Divine Tribulation, he could only maintain it for a hundred breaths of time. Attempting to maintain it for a longer period would result in terrible consequences. Currently, Yun Che can maintain this form indefinitely.
Moon Star Restoration - Instant Counter. Heretic God fourth style. The Evil God profound skill that first shows a glimpse of seizing control of the natural laws. It can instantly rebound an attack of any strength and form. Although activation requires near-zero profound energy, it requires extremely high concentration. Cannot be activated successively over short periods. Regardless of whether or not it is successful, one will suffer divine retribution as a result of tampering with the natural law. Lifespan will be drastically reduced.
Remarks: Strong against someone who is strong, but has no effect against a weak opponent.
When activated, it doesn't require profound strength and thus doesn't leak any traces of profound energy.
Energy Consumption: Small
5th Realm: Hell Monarch (阎皇)
The limit that a human can possibly achieve. Profound energy becomes blood red. When maintaining this state, it will result in intense negative emotions. Before reaching late stage in the Divine Tribulation Realm, if it was forcefully activated, it would result in instant death. Initially, at 9th Level Divine Tribulation Realm, it could be used for a mere instant and commence a single attack while in that state, the repercussions that his body will suffer afterwards in terms of injuries are immense though and can nearly knock him out unconscious, if he doesn't forcefully withhold his consciousness. At 1st Level Divine King, he could maintain Hell Monarch for fifteenth breaths of time. After reaching 8th Level Divine Sovereign and breaking through to the 6th Stage of the Great Way of the Buddha, Yun Che can keep Hell Monarch open for a very long time and it will no longer damage his body.After reaching the peak of the 10th Level of the Divine Sovereign Realm, Yun Che could maintain Hell Monarch at all times.
Other Shore Asura - Desperate Berserking. Evil God fifth style. Ignores the limits of one’s profound strength and the laws of profound cultivation, forcefully increasing one’s profound strength by an entire great realm. After which, one would have his Profound Veins self-destructed and his life and soul burnt.
Energy Consumption: Life & Soul
6th Realm: God Ash (神烬)
Can be controlled with the body of True God. Grants the user power that exeeds the current limit of the Primal Chaos.
Yun Che could open this gate for only 2 breaths after sacrificing 4 Star God inheritances(Heavenly Poison, Heavenly Strength, Heavenly Origin, and Heavenly Chief) as a power source.Even though he opened it only for 2 breaths of time, more than seventy percent of his muscles, bones, and meridians were ruptured or broken.
Can be controlled with the body of Creation God.
- From the memory imprint Jasmine got along with the legacy, there was only information about the first to the fifth gate, the sixth and seven remained unknown. She assumed that a mortal's body simply could not handle the 6th and 7th gates, hence their exclusion from the imprint.
- "The Heretic God's Secret Arts" were originally called the “Devil God Forbidden Tome”  The Heretic God created it by combining his powers with the Heaven Smiting Devil Emperor‘s.
- Since the Primal Chaos Dimension is unable to handle a person whose combat power is equivalent to a true god, Heretic God placed a limit to stop his successor's cultivation at the peak Divine Sovereign Realm making them unable to breakthrough Divine Master Realm.
- By obtaining all the seeds, Yun Che would be able to advance to the Divine Master Realm, which is currently impossible due to the seal imposed by the Heretic God (Yun Che is missing the last seed). However, to preserve and stabilize natural laws, the Heretic God thrown the Earth Seed into the Abyss of Nothingness.
