The trials given by the lord Sea God are separated by level. At different levels, the difficulty will also be different. The Sea God will give different trials to different people.The examiners are the Seven Sacred Pillars. Through different level trials, the challenger will obtain corresponding authority on Sea God Island. The trials are not only according to the examine's strength, but at the same time also potential.
When the challenger receives the trials, the challenger will be marked on the forehead according to the level and number of trials.
The natives of Sea God Island are given ten years for each trial, while outsiders are given one year.
After completing one test, the next trial will begin. If you exceed the time limit, or try to run, then the Sea God seal that entered his forehead before will explode, killing the examine. Only true for black level and up.
The higher the number of tests, the harder it will be to complete the trial. Just like the colors of Spirit Rings, from lowest to highest:
- White: They are the lowest trials, and one will only have one trial.
- Yellow: One will only have one trial.
- Purple: One will have one to three tests.
- The Sea God will assign purple trials to those who commit acts of evil to punish them, its mainly to those not from Sea God Island.
- Black: One will have four to six tests.
- In one hundred years, the black level trial has appeared altogether thirty one times, among those, seven passed, twenty four failed. In the Manhua, there were twenty-one. The seven who passed are currently the Sea God Island’s Seven Sacred Pillars’s protectors. And among the seven, Sea Dragon Douluo, passed the black level six tests.
- Red: One will have seven trials. These only had happened for elect the future ruler or high priest of Sea God Island, like Bo Saixi. There are exceptions like Xiao Wu, that had a one red trial. Having a red trial means that there is a high chance of success.
- Golden: One will have nine trials which are called the Sea God's Nine Tests. This test is only given to the Sea God's Successor, upon passing this test one would become the Sea God. The tests in this level are two fold of the Red Level tests. The first six tests are quite similar to the other tests, the actual Sea God's Tests start from the Seventh Trial.
God Bestowed Spirit Ring Edit
Every challenger is given a chance to absorb one when they reach a bottleneck. How strong the spirit ring becomes depends on the spirit master and what colored test he/she is taking.
For Example, a black level trial taker can get at least a ten thousand level spirit ring with no limit, that means the age of the spirit ring can go up to 99,999 years.
In the Manhua, challengers are given a God Pillar stone with a spirit ring inside. It works the same as a God Bestowed Spirit Ring. One must peel the stone to obtain the ring and then make a new one. Each stone has a fixed age limit and spirit ring energy. How long spent peeling the stone and making the spirit ring depends on the spirit master's endurance.
For a God Pillar's Stone, during the ring dissolution and the ring internalization, the spirit master can peel the god stone and absorb the spirit ring's energy one by one. The absorption time is longer than a normal spirit ring gained from a spirit beasts. The minimum is half a month, the max being half a year.
For those who have the chance to absorb a 100,000 years God Pillar stone, they must face the trials from a 100,000 spirit beast. Failing means death.
