As he traverses the continent of Douqi, Gu He takes on the mantle of Dan King Guhe and gains an incredible power - the Ten Thousandfold disciple cashback system. This allows him to grant gifts to his disciples, which are then returned ten thousandfold.
"You have gifted Liu Ling the Qinglian Heartfire, triggering a tenfold return and granting you the mighty Qinglian Holy Fire!" the system announces as each gift brings Gu He greater power.
After three years of intense training, Xiao Yan returns proudly to the Yunlan Sect, eager to display his newfound strength.
"Don't underestimate this once poor youth!" he warns his former lover Nalan Yanran. "Today I'll show you what a true genius can do!"
But Nalan Yanran just smiles faintly. "Is that so?" she asks, as a terrifying Dou Emperor aura suddenly surges from her.
Shocked, Xiao Yan stammers in disbelief, "How did you become a Dou Emperor powerhouse?"
With an arrogant smile, Nalan Yanran replies, "With my master, anything is possible."
