The world setting (multiple planes of existence) and the MC (similar situation with the same plot armor in form of an "A.I. Chip") are the only solid connections between this and Warlock of Magus World (thankfully). However, Age of Adepts comes without an idiotic mc who contradicts himself regularly and has a more variable cast of characters(not everyone is a total psychopath). The pacing is very slow compared to most other web novels and despite the use of an A.I. Chip/plot armor, the author is clever enough to make the... more>> important fights suspenseful. There is more to the novel than forcing through situations with reincarnation cheats(although you need to expect that to a degree). It's still up to Greem himself to make the best use of his tools and (hopefully) survive.

It's a decent web novel.  <<less

While there are some scenes that's genuinely interesting, my main concern are all those exposition. It has disrupted the story to me.

It's like half of the chapter dedicated to deliver explanation about this world. I mean, will that info still be relevant after 100 chapters later?

The AI thing is ridiculous, though over time your suspension of disbelief will ignore it.

Everything else seems fine to me.

This is just plain bad. Not only is it a clone of WMW, but at the same time it has no redeeming qualities or anything unique to distinguish it from the rest of the chip web novels.

*Useless Protagonist
So far he's a boy toy being jacked around by women.

*Useless Cheat
All parts talking about this thing are just to fluff up the word count. Maybe it gets better later on?

... more>> *Irritating female cast
All women are irrational, emotional time bombs according to this web novel. Or just plain crazy.

My advice? Stay away. <<less

I would recommend that anyone trying this novel read the first 20-30 chapters before deciding whether they like it or not. The story really doesn't 'kick off' until ~chapter 15, so it feels a little slow in the beginning. However, if you stick with it, I believe that you will enjoy it much more once the story really gets going.

Also, as the editor of this novel, it would be fallacious for me to give it 5 stars and selflessly inflate the total (though I do believe it is worth 5... more>> stars!). Thus, I have given it 4 stars. <<less

It's blatantly inspired by Warlock in the Magus World, but it doesn't do very well despite that. The protagonist uses fire as his element, the magic system restricts how many spells you can know at any given level, and he has no other real skills nor a personality cunning enough to overcome the daily issues of being a bottom-rung adept. Even his ability to absorb knowledge is weak, as it takes energy from his spirit to do so.

Supposedly the story kicks into gear when the fights... more>> start happening, but I just found myself bored by them. <<less

Oooooo ohhh , I saw a thread saying this was similar to Warlock of the Magus World, I can't wait to read it~!

The premise revolves around a transmigration into a apprentice mage, who doesn't really have a backstory, he was just really unlucky and needs the assistant chip to help turn his fortunes around as he would be really mediocre with out it. currently practicing fire magic in a dark magis domain. Run ins with power struggles and different races such as vampires, bug men and even hawkeyes.

The A.I... more>> chip has limitations at his current level and the series picks up after chapter 5.

I'm pretty sure they established that he was not cruel or malicious by the fact that he came from the modern world and gave food to his neighbor. Rather than leylins background of an apocalyptic world and the fact that his aim is to be a adept not a warlock atm. The novel will probably let Greem grow more as a character through his experiences and trials. Right now I'm imagining him as a rogue like fire mage. Trying to make the best of his limited a.I power(which provides him with danger equal to its value) while trying not to die in this tower of death, I believe that it will only get better as he progresses that's why I'm not judging it too hard.

It has a better flow and is more interesting than the wizard world, It doesn't deserve the auto one star rating that snobs of WMW give it.

The story picks up the pace pretty well, with more decision making on the part of the MC and has a nice money woes aspect as well.

Thanks for translating XD <<less

While the concept of the A.I. is the same as in Warlock of the Magus World the story line is different.
The MC isn't in control but is improving with the help of his chip.

Like in every story there are some parts which are already used in other novels. However, there are also new elements to enjoy.

First of all... The description. I actually really liked it. (It is such a huge turnoff when the summary only tells you the person is arrogant and domineering).

As the editor said it is a bit slow at first, but it gets better and I believe you guys will love the change of pace from your other novels. The fantasy elements are my favorite part. And the biological chip is different from a lot of op things the author could have given the mc.

The MC is calculative and he can... more>> be nice at times (actually one act of kindness has resulted in him getting a vampire companion *cough* boss, who saves his life).

So far the mc's personality hasn't gone off the deep end... But time will tell. This is only the beginning. <<less

Like others said, it's very similar to Warlock of the Magus World. The MC gets an AI data chip thing that helps him process data, but I think this one starts off weaker than the chip in WMW.

While the plot itself is pretty interesting, I'm not a fan of the MC. He is someone who constantly gets bullied, and yet he never even thinks about getting revenge.

The supervisor of the tower he's living in comes by with 2 cronies and ransacks his room, taking all of the loot he's... more>> acquired over years of gathering. He stands there and meekly accepts it. There's no thought of anger or a hint of revenge. He just thinks "Man, if only I was stronger".

Later, he goes to take a mission that suits him just right. It's challenging but not impossible and has decent rewards for completion. An antagonist much stronger than him (and the supervisor from before) pulls some strings and he ends up being assigned a mission so hard that even the antagonist has a high chance of dying during it. What does he do? "He smiled sadly to himself." That was a quote from the story. Again, he doesn't think about getting revenge, he just accepts it and goes off by himself to train a bit.

WHERE IS YOUR BACKBONE??? Obviously, he's weaker and strength is everything so I don't expect him to go and pick a fight with the antagonist, but to not even have a bad thought? Come on man... <<less

Yes Age of Adepts is inspired by WMW, much like how people said Ultimate Evolution was like Terror Infinity. But this does not make this any less awesome. The principle is initially the same but it quickly makes a right turn into its own path like Ultimate Evolution did. The MC is more of your average Joe than a selfish scientist Leylin is, because is AI chip was meant for the common public and he just haven't to be of the first batch to test it... more>> out. The AI op level starting out is nowhere near as broken as Leylins was, at least so far. The magic principles and types seem to be similar to WMW which I also like as this will probably help the author from going astray by screwing up the power system by trying to unique.

Overall I expect and hope this will be just as good as WMW as the UE was in comparison to Terror Infinity is. <<less

In the beginning, I had to ignore the similarities to Warlock of the Magus World in order to continue and I am happy I did. I also had to rate it a 5 to offset some baseless low scores.

Listen, this novel comes with its flaws. Where WotMW falls short, Age of Adepts does well. Character development here seems a little better. Still a cold and cutthroat world, but at least MC is somewhat likeable. It's too early to judge side characters, but so far I like them too. I... more>> find myself rooting for the MC here a lot more than Leylin (WotMW).

At least the author doesn't use as much pseudo science for this novel. My biggest gripe with WotMW was that the author started the novel by explaining every phenomenon with "science" only to start abandoning it later on. This really irritated me. Here, there's no such thing yet.

However, one of the problems this novel has is that the author likes to hear himself talk. There's some repeating and bloat going on that I find myself skipping cause nobody got time for that.

Personally, after a certain amount of chapters, this clearly is different than WotMW. Better? Not enough chapters out to declare.

You don't have to hate it for the similarities! I say read both and enjoy both. Personally, I already caught up to WotMW, so a new similar novel is fine with me as long as it entertains me. We aren't paying for this! Unless you donate, hold off on the horrible 1 star reviews cause this novel reminds you of WotMW too much. <<less

It is somehow similar to WMW but I personally think that it is more realist because even though he gets a cheat, it isn't overpowered.

The MC is quite realistic as well, because even though he gets bullied he doesn't get a cheat so great that he can sweep the floor with everyone.He is getting stronger steadily and know his limit.For now he is weak so he stays low and tolerate the abuse but seeing his character we can already foresee that once he gets strong enough he will take his... more>> revenge. Its obvious that if someone stronger than you is agressing you, one can either fight(but without chance of victory) or flee (and prepare before avenging the outrage).

And that's why i like the story for now. <<less
