I’m saying. A lot of readers on this site seem to be of the immediate gratification personality and, as such, are way too compulsive. On top of what you said there’s also the issue of not knowing side effects. What if the stone is only useful on monsters? What if prolonged exposure starts to have adverse effects because of the rapid mutations? Worst case scenario it just kills him flat out because his body can’t handle the rapid evolution with his low geno pool. View More

Trojianmaru: To be fair to those saying just use the stone on himself. I think it's a case of short term vs long term. The stone might get him 50 points, but it let's him boost easier beasts to higher levels for later consumption. If he manages to find a mutant beast and catch it, that's a free sacred beast. N if one day, he caught a sacred beast? Who knows.

It's not like the stone gives continuous points, it just bumps them up to the next level.

Because they use their own hard earned money to take care of those close to them and try to help them better themselves and get on the right track?

It said they were 6:1 in numbers. If most of their players are noobs in a forced fight there’s no way they properly split focus and targeted players on shi fengs side. So even assuming that by some miracle 10 of the ranged players managed to all target and hit one player that’s a maximum of 500. Now take into account the above factors as well as just missed attacks, dodges and the fact that not all 120 or so are ranged and can instantly do damage. They clearly had no chance to kill anyone. View More

LazyDeath: Thw author of this story doesnt understand the power of numbers.... so what if mcs party kill one or 2 in few seconds.... if the enemies damages is 40 to 50 per hit then he should multiply it by 20s to 50s... thats instannt death... so what if their noobs? Raw power doesnt change wih numericals... this is fucking stupid..

I feel you on a lot of this. If the author just stuck to realistic early game rates of, say, 1/100 then a lot of this would seem a lot less thrown together. The insanely poor drop rates couple with the abysmal leveling rates for literal beginner content is my only complaint so far. The inflation of items I can overlook because it makes sense in the long run with those absurd numbers though. The early advantage lets you be faster/safer so more more reward at less risk. Plus those numbers are so outrageous even slightly above average gear might not get replaced until much later on. It just feels extremely surreal and out of touch though because of those same issues.

Pokki: Man, the speed at which items lose their value is... Weird to say the least. A few hours ago he sold bronze stuff for 24 silver. And now it's mysterious iron stuff for nearly the same price and bronze stuff is 3 silver. It would make me quite angry I must say. Especially seeing the drop rate described as one in ten thousand.

The only pass I would give is if, say, the author had noted something along the lines of “Sadly it would have been far more if the armors of the now burnt zombies were salvageable.” Not only would that clear things up but it adds that small layer of additional depth and detail that people enjoy. Just one sentence would have gone a long way. View More

Sadly you don’t even know English dawg so your whole point thus far is moot. Plus your original logic is also extremely flawed as you can’t even keep up with story that’s written. You say go for midnight exercise when it was already stated that he was already doing that with his master. You can’t even keep track of basic events and times that are CLEARLY given to you. Yet you think you’re some sort of omnipotent genius that can only comment negative comments and spam curse words in a language you barely understand. It’s actually laughable because it shows not only are you able to put up actual sound logic or rhetoric but also that you’re severely disappointed with your own life and seek attention.

OpinionatedPotato: I had suspicions when he first got teleported out of the secret realm and I'm sad to say that they were spot on. Now Yale is just roleplaying as a CEO and learning to craft like crafting is meaningful and important. I really never understood why all rpg and cultivation systems in novels want to use crafting as a side-plot. It's such a waste of time to write and it's even more boring to read. He's already buying trash "metals" from the roadside vendors, next, there's gonna be an "expedition" into a "dungeon, cave, secret realm or mountain system" for new materials. It's so bland and pointless and predictable like we haven't seen the same thing at least 40 times already. And don't even get me started about that company bull****. Using a pet as a marketing pitch? Retarded. Yale is going to leave eventually and bring Wyba with him, then what will happen to the company? Using Wyba as a marketing pitch shows the Author has absolutely no idea what he's doing. A three-year-old can see that Wyba is going to leave with Yale eventually, but the author still uses Wyba as marketing for the company, what does this tell us? It tells us that one of two things is going to happen. Either this stupid bs crafting arc is going to last for god knows how long (till leaving with wyba doesn't affect the company at all) or the town/city/country will come under attack and be destroyed making the fact that Wyba leaves with yale unimportant. I'm so disappointed in this novel. When it started I was hoping to see maybe at least a little new ground being made in the genre, especially since it's so good for an original. But it seems that even new writers can't escape trash tropes.

I would ignore him. I wish I could just disable comments half the time because most of the people that seem to comment are just like him. Shortsighted, low IQ as well as EQ and, more likely than not, read the stories entirely in hopes to fulfill their own fantasies. Nearly every comment he posts for multiple stories is him telling the author how to do things despite not having his own novels on the site and every comment is always about how the MC needs to stand out more, crush every one instantly at every chance and even “spread their seed.” What’s funny is that with his mindset he fits perfectly as the opposite of the MC and would be one of those trash antagonists that rush in thinking their strong only to meet their demise without knowing what even happened. 😂😅 View More

Soon be outgrown? The first rare weapon he got was recommended for level 10 and he stated it could be used until around 20, he just a level 20 rare to replace it instead. By that standard since the quest recommended level 25 then the gear would likely be set to level 30 and, as epic, be usable for more than just 10 levels higher. So they will be getting all those other rewards and a piece of powerful gear that will last for at least another 20 or so levels. Couple with the fact that the exp requirements to level after 20 have already been noted to increase past the old linear system the items are even more valuable. Sigh...but some people either can’t put simple things together. View More

Pagemonger: Some comments really are blinded by how the MC was a thousand year old cultivator from a different realm. Forgetting that he reincarnated to a weak body in earth which had low spiritual essence, and he is inside a damn game where only some of his cultivation techniques manifest at their beggining stages.

Reading with comprehension is the key of understanding the story and be immersed by it. Not just speed reading through the story forgetting essential factors that contributes to the growth of the MC.

The story is great so far and I will never get bored with such speed.

Rozuka: To be quite honest the story does have a ton of potential. The concept, albeit not entirely original, does well in maintaining a unique feel for its niche. The world clearly has had some thought put into it and makes it feel as though it will expand even more. Some concepts seem odd but as you go they make more sense and are actually rather diverse and interesting as well. The story actually feels like a real weak-to-strong story without mega plot armor, I.e divine intervention or some BS.

Now with the good parts out of the way though...the bad really comes into play, hence my stoppage. Firstly, the characters start to feel rather flat. Well not so much start to as much as never really get going. Aside from a few moments where they show some personality, for the most part they feel robotic. Alongside that, there is even a. Lack of real physical descriptions for repeat appearances or important characters. Most of the time they are described with very generic terms of “handsome/beautiful” and the color of their hair or their height/weight just thrown on top. That could be overlooked as the story otherwise is interesting right? Well the bigger issue is that, even when the story seems interesting, the grammar and editing are non-existent. There are so many errors, typos and missing words that you spend a chunk of time just re-reading a sentence to decipher what’s going on, ruining the flow of events. It does state that an editor was picked up at chapter 35 and for about 4-5 chapters the quality massively improves...but that’s just it. It’s only for a few chapters and then it gets worse than ever. This was what really stopped me from continuing as it began to be a chore to keep up with and, with the inevitable premium wall, not worth my investment to do more work than reading. If edited properly and earlier chapters rewritten o would definitely go back in but sadly, at this time, it doesn’t feel warranted.

On a final note, I can’t speak on the update schedule, as I started late and stopped at chapter 62, but it seems most people are okay with it.

020_FM: First of all, I really like the setup of the Story. I think its brilliantly done. One of the best of all original Novels I've read.

SPOILERS starting here.
My short summary of the main points:
The MC grows up in a world where people are able to bond with monsters upon graduation from school to increase their own powers. Even though he was offered a monster with high potential due to his academic achievements, he chose one raised by his own family with less potential and weaker ability's as he did not want to join an Organisation. He starts to cultivate the "supreme combat exercise", strengthening his own body to overcome the lacking potential of his bonded monster while enduring the pain that comes together with using this technique. His monster gets stronger as he levels up the "supreme combat exercise" as they share a symbiotic relationship.
He travels to the most dangerous city of the continent after graduation to quicken up his cultivation to achieve his goal, which is to participate in a tournament five years later. From that point on until the most recent chapters he starts to regularly hunt monsters to increase his strength and accumulate wealth, with some twists happening while hunting those monsters. The bonded monster of the MC, while weak, turns out to possess the ability to identify natural treasures while adventuring, giving hope that those treasures can be used to power them up.

There are a few points stopping me from enjoying the novel fully.
The grammar is really bad. Even though there is a proofreader starting from chapter 36 (not sure which chapter it was exactly), the quality of the story does not go up substantially. The storyline is nicely thought through but the character growth in terms of power is lacking. When it seems that MC grew substantially, all the other characters that he is currently interacting with seem to have grown even more, resulting in a seemingly weak MC that is depending on the protection of the other characters.
The novel has gone premium yesterday which I can completely understand because it is a great story and good performance should be rewarded. But the quality of writing needs to go up steeply to justify fee-based chapters.
For those that read up until here: All in all a great story with potential but held back by the bad grammar, nonetheless worth reading.

EveningSong: Dropped at 143 as it is not worth the stones.

Tl:dr "meh" at the best of times, needs a full re-write to be worth the stones.

This is not, by any means, a premium novel. Nor is it complete garbage. It has potential, a novel concept, and some solid ideas. However, that potential has yet to be expressed up until chapter 143.

The characters have all the emotional depth of a cardboard cutout. The battles are not satisfying. The dialogue is sub-par.

For a first time author's embryonic novel, this isnt half bad. To be something worth paying for however, it needs a solid block of editing, a complete re-write, and some time for the author to grow more accustomed to the English language (my understanding is the author isnt a native speaker, kudos to you friend for the attempt but you have a few miles left to go before you sleep).

Despite the 3-Star rating the story itself isn’t bad. I’m 10 chapters in and I feel it’s fair to say while the story seems good thus far, there are big issues that hold it back. The leading culprit of all the problems though is the writing style.

For starters, it’s not like the story is unreadable. It’s just that the enjoyment quality does way down due to how it comes across. You’ll often find yourself stopping or editing sentences in your head as you go, to make more sense out of them, disjointing thoughts and connection to the piece. Many, and I mean a very large amount, of the paragraphs end up as massive run on sentences. Slurring thoughts and actions together into a bit of a mess at times. This doesn’t just affect actions either. It makes characters seem more bland than they would initially appear as descriptors and actions don’t have the proper spacing to make it seem as if they are more than just NPCs.

All that being said, the world itself seems interesting and despite the character seeming majorly OP at the start you also feel like he really isn’t. He may be strong but someone stronger was already shown. So if he wants that carefree life, being unhindered, he would at least have to surpass said character. Also, many of the issues I pointed out can easily be fixed if an editor is up to the job. By just fixing punctuation, improper tenses and a little quality of life cleanup, the entire story would be reborn with much higher enjoyment to be had. Even if it gets better in later chapters if you don’t have it addressed early on you lose some fans from the jump. I do think the author has an interesting tale to tell, it just needs some sprucing up. View More

TENTATIVE RATING:
I’m not very far into the story at all. I’m gonna be honest with that from the jump. However, there is a glaring issue that really impacts the story and stops me from wanting to continue from the start...the writing itself is a bit of a mess. I can tell the author has put thought into the story and the description of both creatures as well as environment are done decently enough. The issue I have is just the way that sentences and breaks are done is...unnerving? Many sentences are grotesquely long, run on sentences without even the slightest care for punctuation. It threw me off because the prologue had very few, if any, of those issues but the first few chapters are riddled with the stuff. It just really disjointed me from the story because it makes it harder to keep track of what’s going on. This causes issues for several reasons.
1. As stated before, it just makes the sentences feel long and droning. What could be summarized In one or two concise points ends up becoming a long drawn out paragraph of a sentence.
2. Due to the above reason, you have to reread once or twice because it’s hard to separate his own internal thoughts from some of the descriptions.
3. There are issues with tenses used. There are shifts being past/present in areas they throw you for a loop if not noted.
4. The repeated uses of but/and in long sentences not only sound bad but jumble up thoughts even worse.

Now that those are out there, I’m not just going to bash the story. I do feel with some editing work the story would improve tremendously. Not only would addressing these areas clean up confusing pieces but it would make the story flow much better. The fights would be more interesting and his actions wouldn’t feel like they all blend together, in turn making his character feel more developed. The writing makes him sound as if he’s supposed to be a decently well off, successful and composed individual. However it’s hard to get that image across when the writing can’t reflect it, thus making his inner thoughts feel like a mashed up mess of small interactions. I’m not sure if/when it gets better but just wanted to note that early chapters need that editing done or you immediately lose some readers attention before the story even gets a chance to do it inherently.

I plan to continue with the story bit by bit and will give an updated review later on. It’s just that the immediate effect of those issues really made me have to take a break from the piece and, hopefully, help the author notice the impact early chapters hold. View More

I feel you on a lot of this. It’s just disappointing because if the author spent more time on side plots and less time repeating the same “I’m better than you so I do what I want...Wtf...How are you such a powerful evildoer!?” trope then the story would be so much better. Lots of his fellow disciples are interesting but get ignored and even if a cool arc shows up all it is is fight spam. View More

uRb4IN_: Having read over 300 chapters i can give a proper review. The story is ****. Review over. It doesn't matter if you read the first 5 chapters or the next 100 chapters. The whole story is based on a dude that always attracts people who have an instant killing intent towards him. All of those people are somehow called geniuses but dont even present the slightest amount of logical or reasonable thinking. The plot of getting provoced over and over and over again in a never ending circle is just to depressive and unbearable. Second, the ranking and leveling speed of all people within the novel get pretty quickly out of hand. Like sidecharacters can easily compete with MC eventho he has most op leveling machine. Or people being on the bottleneck of the next realm for so long but then in the next chapter breaking throu 4 realms in a swift loop, just so illogical. To make it a short, the last illogical thing is the chaotic and unreadable design not only the story but every chapter itself. Like honestly the author must have been on acid. Its a shame to copy and paste the last word, sentence or paragraph as the title but thats just the tip of the iceberg. You will pretty quickly find out that 50% of the entire words are represented by the word amazing, formidable or other synonyms. 30% insults like the sentence you are courting death and fighting shouts, 19.99% explaining the realm of each opponent and the battletechnic and qi they are using and lastly .01% going on in the story is.

All in all it's more entertaining watching bible.tv 24/7 then reading this book for even 5 chapters

Revoke comment on updates. Many others say it’s inconsistent. Guess I haven’t noticed since I read novels in spurts to allow binging. View More

Rozuka: I’m not sure where to really start here. I guess the first thing to say is that all in all the novel is just slightly above average. In almost every regard it just feels like it’s just a tiny bit better than your standard generic clone.

The translation, though appreciated, feels very unrefined. I’m not sure whether the blame here should be on the translator or editors though. There are so many phrases and words in general that get repeated over and over and over and...you get it? Hence I feel that part of it falls on editors. I know typically eastern languages have a larger variety of words for very specific terms, items and tasks. The translator may not have the extensive English vocabulary to match but editors can go through and do that at least a little bit. There’s also the issue of the disgusting overuse of “the” prior to terms in the novel. His blade tore through “the space,” it was as if “the god” had descended. Unnecessary uses like those just make sentences feel so disjointed and uncomfortable to read.

As far as other aspects: the updates are consistent which is nice and the world actually has some very interesting aspects and pieces. Sadly the broken grammar and storyline really let down whatever good points the world building has going for it. Most of the interesting areas devolve, very quickly, into unexplored backdrops as the novel only focuses on the fight scenes, which aren’t bad but the pacing ruins them.

What I mean is the story is so over saturated with nonstop fights they all start to blend together. It’s already typical in the genre for several fights to feel the same but after the first hundred or so chapters, which were actually pretty good, they literally ALL feel the same. Our MC gets maybe two chapters between these constant waves of zombie-like antagonists throwing themselves at him. No expansion on the world, other characters or even slight deviations into side daos, which many better novels use as relief and plot development. One of the best parts in the novel so far was when he briefly followed the dao of alchemy in Yi Yuan school. It showed him using one of his tools and actually interacting with non-brain dead characters. He developed his base using some formations and was shown to possess more than just brute strength and a snobby attitude. Sadly it only lasted for about 4-5 chapters but it was enough relief to make the next fight feel eventful and not just forced.

All in all the novel is around a mid 3 for me. It started off with stronger potential but has slowly fallen to the way side because the author just lacks in diversity. I still have 200 or so until I’m caught up and there are some glimmering signs of hope now that he is interacting with Hua Menghan and his fellow Star Peak disciples a bit. With more characters there is more room for at least interactions outside of the same trite “Ye Wixen used a sword intention that split the space and his golden godly appearance wowed the crowd.”

Wiz has a very solid form of writing. Sentence structure and paragraph breaks feel natural. PoV changes and transitions the same. Descriptions are fairly solid and it doesn’t hurt ones brain trying to understand or envision what is being told. Errors do occur but they get fixed quickly.

Updates: 5
Pretty straightforward. The releases are daily, on time and consistent. If any changes or breaks are needed he tells us and then it’s right back to normal. Transparency is always nice.

Story: 4
The story is good, very good. For a piece that was intended only for a contest to come this far is proof of that. There are some points where it feels details are lacking or skimmed over though. However, at this point I’m not sure if it’s intended as to leave an air of mystery or a result of the writing itself. Either way, it has been captivating enough for me to not only read but look forward to each and every chapter, something most novels cannot do.

Characters: 4.5
For the most part I find the characters straightforward but enjoyable and endearing. My biggest qualm through most of the novel has been that of the main character Dorian. I say this but he has become notably better in the later chapters. Prior to this though he felt a bit one dimensional and annoying. He would go on about doing what he feels is right but always felt like he lacked a bit of conviction and decisiveness. He wants to save Will and realizes the time frame he has may seem long but isn’t all that much in reality. Yet, it doesn’t feel he actively seeks many opportunities to expand on his strength and make this a reality. He already realized he is far too weak to make an impact early on the story and, from the way the worlds are described (which will be touched in the next topic), it seems there are a myriad of monsters he can hunt and, even if gaining lesser energy, he can still notably improve. However, he takes few of these opportunities to do so. As I said though, it has improved in recent chapters. Partly due to him realizing his own flaws and he has suffered repeated setbacks because of it. Maybe it just took some time for him to truly realize he is in a new world, a new body and he is both too weak and clueless to truly make a difference.

Apart from MC, I find most other characters very fun and interesting with depth to them. Many of the highly powerful characters have shown fun or quirky sides to them. Aurelius and his playful banter with Julia but stern and icy demeanor when relaying tasks and then, further still, his sadness at seeing comrades die or being injured. The eleventh-born who just seems like a playful but destructive child who enjoys “poetry?” Even Ausra, the soul-matrix, that feels a little too intelligent and mysterious. Maybe I’m too harsh on Dorian because we get to see so many of his thoughts and they don’t perfectly align with mine, typical reader anger, but as far as the others go. I love almost all of them.

World: 4
The world building is good but not great. Which is understandable considering the universe we have seen consists of 30,000 of them and there will be leaping between. There are points where they are emphasized and the details make them feel incredible, as if you are there but, these moments are often brief. However, in spite of that, it’s hard for me to really find faults with this because it is in tune with what the character is seeing. The wonderment of the environment is definitely there but he also has other things to do besides sightsee. There’s also two the fact that the story’s primary selling point is the evolution aspect so yeah...one other thing to note though, which also ties into character design, is that the author does provide links for reference which I find lovely. I do believe my imagination works well for me but sometimes references are quite nice just for the extra detail.

Other thoughts:
There are a few things that I wish were a bit different, and are largely specific to this genre and story. I think a lot of appeal comes from the foundation of the “reborn as a monster” trope. It’s cool, it’s different and it has avenues to explore. However, there are a few things that really bother me.

Firstly, the transition of energy from magic items and treasures. It’s a cool concept and makes sense with his unique soul that allows him to siphon energy like that but it feels unrefined, or maybe unresolved. Such as the huge palace gate he destroyed. You would think that by that point in the story he would have at least an inkling on measuring how much energy an object holds. He had the experience with the ring, the skeleton, multiple enemies and many magic herbs. Yet, even at the current chapter, he can only judge how much energy something holds only if it’s living, thanks to Ausra, or after he absorbs it, the case of the Grakon swords. It is stated he doesn’t really understand laws of the universe and magic but the way his soul works he should at least be able to kind of feel when non-living beings possess large amounts of energy now, right?

Second, the fusion feature of his soul-matrix. The concept. Badass. I love the idea of him crossing genetics and creating new hosts for himself. The execution though feels a bit...rushed? I understand the concept behind how it was explained and I like that he doesn’t start from a baby EVERY single time but it also seems a bit forced. I mean for example the giant myrr dragon was noted as an entirely new species but he was able to immediately combine into a fully grown ***** with no issues whatsoever. Like I said I get the concept but it would still be cool, particularly for undiscovered and otherwise impossible hybrids, to have him need at least one growth phase, like stage 4 to stage 5 or the like. Since the combinations are all theory until the point of actual fusion it would make sense that some room for growth or other incalculable changes are there...Then again the fusions aren’t handled by him but Ausra which leads to the final point...

Lastly, Ausra...just Ausra...I did note that I love how she feels a little too intelligent and mysterious but she also feels plain broken. I can’t say too much because I feel we will definitely find out more about her in the near future but it would’ve been nice if she was toned down a tiny bit. Like my previous point for example; not only can she can simulate the fusions but she handles his evolution to perfect levels. Even then when he makes near extinct or previously undiscovered forms her knowledge of their abilities feels way too high, almost encyclopedic. It may be me nitpicking but if she was only able to simulate and partially aid him there would be so much more room for him to grow and story to develop. It would also feel more...natural? (Feels out of place to say in a fantasy novel such as this but I think my point gets across.) As I said though she is mysterious, just as her “supposed” creator, and I’m interested to see how she develops but I feel like her near omniscient presence may be what led me to dislike Dorian for so long as well. He has such an insanely overpowered tool and still falls short several times. As I said though, nitpicking. :p View More
Reborn: Evolving From Nothing

The dual cultivation was just kind of the tipping point for me. The subtleties of their relationship prior were what made it nice but the dual cultivation felt over emphasized. The world itself also feels disjointed. I get that he reincarted in a lower realm that’s supposed to be fairly early in its cultivation development but there’s just no flow to this aspect. Some areas are incomparably primitive, literally throwing feces like chimps at one point, but they actually have bustling cities not too far away with sky ships powered by beast bones. The disparity is just far too great. The sad part is writing and translation are rather good otherwise but spoiled by issues such as the above. View More

Kebean: So for anybody who is wondering, TMW has signed with QI and has withdrawn from WW. So this is indeed the same novel, True Martial World.
On another note, this is one of my favorite LN and you should give it a shot. 1000+ translated chapters so far :D
