The Buddhist Monk Clan is not the strongest clan there is, right now there are 4 other clans that can rival them and some other organizations, if you put aside the strange demons.
Feel it's good to add this, after the raw that was released today, chapter 1,384 Mu Chen finally became a Heavenly Sovereign.
HS is divided in 3 stages - spirit , immortal and saint.Every HS goes through a 4 stage tribulation , but Mu Chen's had and extra 5th stage.
You mean the sovereign body skill? Not sure where you read that it's 4th place, because it's not ranked at all. It's outside the 100 Sovereign Body rankings. It's also not accurate to rank his sovereign body skill because it's incomplete. It has 3 stages or "transformations" and Mu Chen is only at the second stage.I'm not sure either how long it's gonna take for him to get the third stage because while he know who is in possesion of it, obtaining it is highly unlikely, so it might be a long while untill he gets to the point where he can obtain it.
