The Ancestral Symbol is one of the most powerful objects in the world and has a Symbol Spirit. As not made by man but condensed by the laws of heaven and earth. Every Ancestral Symbol possesses the power to open the heavens. The one who possesses an Ancestral Symbol would be the strongest existence within heaven and earth. Most ordinary Symbol Masters will not be able to carve out their shapes. Anyone who obtains these Ancestral Symbols will definitely become a legendary figure in the world. There are currently 8 in existence. One who gathers them all will be called the Symbol Ancestor.
They are Heavenly treasures and they possess the power to protect the universe.
In order to use an Ancestral Symbol one needs to get its approval first. One does not merely require strength in order to obtain approval from the Ancestral Symbol. Among the eight Ancestral Symbols, the Devouring Ancestral Symbol is the most mysterious one. Therefore, it will be even more difficult to obtain its approval and you should be mentally prepared. If one could see the Symbol Soul, that would mean one had successfully obtained its approval.
Even if an elite practitioner encounters them, they can only subdue one Ancestral Symbol. It is rumored that only the owner of the Devouring Ancestral Symbol can rely on Devouring Power to fuse the power of the other Ancestral Symbols within his body. It is lately said that this had never actually been achieved before.
The Ancestral Symbol essence can only be extracted using another Ancestral Symbols, when it does not have an owner. On a whole however, having a small part missing is not considered as a major flaw.
When an Ancestral Symbol is activated to its maximum extent, it is possible to summon the Ancestral Symbol spirit. Such power is sufficient to destroy the world.
Only those who have obtained the maximum mastery over the Ancestral Symbol will still possess its powers after cutting their connection to the Ancestral Symbol. Although the Ancestral Symbols have experienced many outstanding owners after them, it is extremely rare to find someone who has reached the level of the Ancient Masters.
It is rumoured that when the eight great Ancestral Symbols were born during the ancient times, the Life Death Ancestral Symbol was the last to appear. As it was small and weak, the Devouring Ancestral Symbol swallowed it into its body and provided it with energy. Only after the Life Death Ancestral Symbol grew up, did it leave the Devouring Ancestral Symbol.
Once a powerful practitioner wanted to get the approval of the Blazing Ancestral Symbol. However, eventually, he was burnt into crisp by that Thousand Heavenly Flames that was invoked by the Blazing Ancestral Symbol. It grants the user complete mastery of the fire element. Currently in Mo Luo's possession.
Currently being possessed by Palace of Darkness as sect's inheritance. With it, the Palace of Darkness has stood strong in the Northern Xuan Region for thousands of years. It grants the user the ability to corrode, suppress, and destroy. Back then, the Devouring Master has attempted to devour the Darkness Ancestral Symbol to see if it was possible. But in the end, he failed.
Grants control over all lightning and thunder. After obtaining it, Lin Dong is able to easily dismiss all his Wind-Lightning Tribulations. However to gain it's acknowledgement, the user must survive being struck by lightning a hundred thousand times.
Mu Lingshan unlike the other individuals doesn't own an Ancestral Symbol. She is the Life Death Ancestral Symbol. The Life Death Ancestral Symbol allows its owner to control life and death, essentially being an immortal and undying. It is also called the symbol that will never be destroyed.
The eye of the Ancestral Symbol would only appear after the owner of the Ancestral Symbol forged an extremely close relationship with it. Since the beginning of time, only a few individuals managed to activate the eye of the Ancestral Symbol. When it appears, in between your brows it will glimmer with the power of the Ancestral Symbol.
