Dou Qi Skill Ranking Edit
Dou Qi skill ranking is separated into 4 classes. The higher the level, the stronger the skill. Once you have reached Dou Practitioner, you are able to learn skills and abilities. Reading scrolls is the most common way to gain a new skill; however, there are other ways to obtain abilities. You can even develop new and unique abilities through rigorous training. Though uncommon, these are abilities that have never been seen before and are unique to you.
- Huang (Yellow): This is the first rank skill class and within each skill there is a further subclass as low/mid/high.
- Xuan (Black): This is the second rank skill category.
- Di (Earth): This is the third rank skill class.
- Tian (Heaven): This is the fourth rank skill class, it is the highest and most powerful skill class and as with each skill class there is a further subclass as low/mid/high.
- This ranking can also be applied to the Dou Qi practitioner's training methods (Dou Qi Method, or Gong Fu).
This comes from the first line of the classic educational text, the Qian Zi Wen (Thousand Character Essay), which was written by Zhou Xingsi of the Liang Dynasty:
天地玄黄，宇宙洪荒. Tian Di Xuan Huang, Yu Zhou Hong Huang. Sky Earth Black Yellow, Time Space Primordial-Chaos.
This is a ranking according to how strong the person is. In this land whoever has strength, has dignity. Without strength you are nothing. As you train your Dou Qi level you gain status and rank, within each Dou Qi rank there are sub ranks indicated as stars when you reach nine stars you have the potential to rank up. e.g. - a nine star Dou Practitioner will rank up to Dou Master with his next Dou Qi increase. The gap between each stars will increase as each one pass each rank and the rate of increase would also increase. Just to give a bit of context, I’ll be using levels as represented in most MMOs and RPGs (online multiplayer and role-playing games), where the levels scale from 1-100.
|1||Dou Zhi Qi|
|Dou Disciple||The very beginning of Dou Cultivation. It’s similiar to levels 1 through 10 of most MMOs.|
|Dou Practitioner||Upon reaching this stage, a Dou Fighter can truly utilise the Dou Qi within their own bodies. It’s similiar to levels 11-15 of said MMO|
|Dou Master||Once this stage is attained, a Fighter can use the Dou Qi in their body to form a cloak giving increased defensive strength. It’s basically levels 16-20, still too weak to be worried about.|
|4||Da Dou Shi|
|Dou Grand Master||It is at this point when a Practitioner‘s Dou Qi becomes hard enough to form an armament. comparable to levels 21-30.|
|Dou Spirit||It’s considered a decent enough state to be in where a person’s Dou Qi will solidify and it becomes possible to apply it to other objects. Levels 31-35 in a nutshel.|
|Dou King||At the time when a person reaches this stage, they will be able to form Dou Qi wings and even draw Dou Qi from around themselves. While this amount is not very large, it can still be useful in a fight. Comparable to level 36-40.|
|Dou Emperor||A step into the realm of the truly strong is attained once one reaches this stage. These existences can draw on massive amounts of Dou Qi from the area and hold themselves in air briefly without wings. It’s the perfect middle level, holding at level 41-50.|
A pinnacle existence among most minor clans, the Dou Zong gains the ability to utilise the mysterious ‘Spatial Strength’ to do thing like hold oneself in air and even create locks in space where a person can only escape after breaking the lock. However, this method exhausts a vast amount of Dou Qi. An expert of this level is in the 51-60 range.
A strong person no matter where one goes, a Dou Zun gains an almost perfect knowledge of the so-called ‘Spatial Strength‘, and is able to use it in a far more versatile manner than any Dou Zong ever could. This class is characterised by the ability to form wormholes (Gaps in spacetime). It sits at a comfortable level 61-70.
|Half Saint||It is a transitional stage of the higher level cultivation realms. It is not considered a true Dou State (as far as I can tell), but is still necessary to enter the extremely stron Dou Sheng class. It is divided into the lower, intermediate, and high levels. It representative of levels 71 through 80.|
|Dou Saint||An unrivalled existence even among the top clans, the Dou Sheng is so ridiculously strong that it surpasses all limits. I need to allocate 20 levels to this class just because of how broken it is. To put it in perspective, a one star Dou Sheng can easily overpower dozens of Dou Zuns and Ban Sheng. A two star doubles that. Once one reaches the sixth star, a person can create an entirely separate realm which other people can inhabit. One could even control the Dou Qi within that realm and become as strong as the world. A nine star Dou Sheng is a pinnacle being in the entire world and|
|Dou God||A mythical rank that is above all others with a power gap so super-duper huge that a peak level Dou Sheng is like an ant or cricket ( you imagine it ) in front of a Dou Di. At least 9 Dou Di in the ancient times has been identify, 8 are the founders of the Eight Ancient Clans, the last one is known as the Tou She Ancient God. This is information from the novel.|
Alchemist (Receptarier) Ranking Edit
They are basically alchemist and can mix various ingredients ranging from common to godly items, to create pills and potions. There are very few Alchemist in the world, thus having one in your household is considered a blessing from the heavens. Alchemists are ranked from 1st Stage (Grade) to 9th Stage (Grade) and each Stage (Grade) is divided into three Tier are :- (Low-Mid-High) . After the 9th Stage there is a stage which has not been achieved for thousands of years, similarly to the Dou Di. This stage is known as the Di Stage (10th Stage) .
