Honestly I would have given this story 5 stars but sadly I can only give  4.5/5

People are right when poiting and criticizing the Diablo system.

And sometimes you can find 2D villians,

This is your common genre  about the idiot, irresponsible and usless king or prince who are replaced by our beloved MC and turn the situation around, but what makes this deserving of such rating is because the world and characters are amazing. Not only that but those heated moments, the moents when they are fighting it gives you a feeling... more>> on your chest that isn't easy to desccibe, is simply amazing to read. There is too some comedy or parts thatmakes you laugh and I simly just want to read more about it and knowing that there is still a lot of chapters to go it greatly please me a pains me.

This is a must read, totally worth your time. <<less

Such an amazing novel focusing on a small tier 6 kingdom and the m/c King Alexander aka Fei.

He can enter a different world for about 8 hours, which allows him to gain experience/items from there and use them in his real kingdom world.

He has multiple classes since in the other world, he can create multiple characters. Assassin. Warrior. Sorcerer. Druid. Paladin...etc. (7 total)

... more>> In combat in his world, he will switch between classes/abilities allowing him to PK enemies quickly.

He can use a potion from that world to heal people in his world. Although his world has magic and knights, the other world has more benefits/better items.

He can even summon dozens of allies from the other world and show them his world/strengthen his army. His goal is to become a tier 1 kingdom and become stronger.

There's a kingdom competition coming up and whether or not your kingdom passes will determine your ranking.

Fei has a wife but we just got Fei's second future wife, this archer girl from the other world. She just got the D.

Right now, about 7 kingdom (mostly tier 5-6) formed an alliance with 500 of their own soldiers each, to destroy Fei's kingdom but they don't know how strong he truly is.

We also have a princess from a higher ranking kingdom who is liking our M/C. She was able to fight off a few a strong assassins that her evil sister sent and Fei/Chambord City saves the day/princess.

This novel is very good. My only complaint is the crappy translation speed but eh <<less

It wad good in the beginning, but after ~100, it's "another xianxia"...mediocre xianxia.
[Mode] game elements-OFF
[Mode] romance-OFF
[Mode] king-OFF
[Mode] handsome,cool,smart,cunning,invincible,brave,awesome HOLY MC - on
[Mode] arrogant villains-ON
[Mode] idiotic world-ON
[Mode] plot armor-ON

This novel is not about King, it's about gang boss. All what he did for kingdom - mass slaughters and strengthened his force. Ch.265.
Villain:"on your knees!"→MC:"ha-ha"→Massacre→Hail the king→Diablo chapter→villain→brave MC→massacre→Hail the king→villain...→HAIL
Also that annoying 2nd harem girl. Author can't find normal role for her, she is useless, but she is everywhere! Every ch author notice that girl. Why?

Story – Progresses at a good pace, has a good amount of action and build up of power levels. Small amounts of information is given and it is relatively easy to understand what is going on in the story.

Main Character – Main character is a generally cool-headed, and his power is quite unique but at the same time not because it is from a IRL game. I’ve seen some reviews dismissing this novel because of this reason but i suggest you to read it and check it out for yourself.

Like how I felt with “My Father In Law Is Lu Bu!”, I cannot get past the premise of the story. Oh, the basic background is fine: a university student wakes up to find himself right in the middle of a battle. He soon found out that he had transmigrated into the body of a mentally challenged, puppet king of a small kingdom that was being besieged in a fantasy setting where magic exists. Not only that, there were those who were manipulating the throne and using him as a... more>> figurehead. That is all well and good, a MC taking charge of a kingdom can be a nice read, but…

I did not get very far into the story, because this novel is almost a fanfiction as the power-up process is the game Diablo II. Not “something like Diablo”, but Diablo itself. For reasons only the author knows, the MC can jump into a game of Diablo II as a Barbarian player. So in addition to transmigration, we now also have a pseudo-VR game type story for Diablo II which is separate from the MC’s new world.

Diablo II. Yes, that famous game produced by Blizzard. Actual game characters like Warriv and Akara, actual questing and mechanics like Town Portal and inventory limitations; lifted wholesale from the game and placed into the story as a way for the MC to grind, level up and gain skills to be taken back to his fantasy kingdom setting.

Other reviewers enjoyed the story, but not me. Due to its heavy reliance on an existing, world famous intellectual property, I actually question it’s legitimacy to be listed here on this site. <<less

Started out great for the first 100 chapters or so, but then it gets really really repetitive, everything is war war and more war i mean they go to war for the tiniest crap, the whole premise of the novel is good but only good if it was 100 or 200 chapters long, there just isnt anything else besides war, this is a xianxia novel that is missing the core or its genre which is exploring the world/universe and getting stronger in the journey

Like other reviewers may have mentioned, the novel was cool in the beginning. Even though initially, the thought of using Diablo 2 as an inspiration for MC's powers was offputting, it eventually grew on me.

What I couldn't take though was after the Diablo 2 part got a bit stale, the author then began using Saint Seiya. I found it inconsistent, with no particular rhyme or reason behind it. I then began to cringe at the thought of what else the author might throw in just to keep the series interesting,... more>> after which I dropped the novel. <<less

Certainely an Epic novel. One of the best chinese western style novel ive read so far.

But be remided that, this is NOT A XIANXIA WUXIA (with all cultivator and martial artist and stuff) but a WESTERN FANTASY NOVEL (with dragon, Magic, Kingdom, wars and stuff) Dont get confused and miss reviewed this novel because of your own personal views and misconception. Its simply ignorance.

Anyway, Normally when writing a novel. The author will choose a certain role /job for the Main Character and stick with that for the whole series and... more>> sometimes only changed once. But in this novel not only was the Mc already sitting in a throne he is also able to wield different (Game Element) job class Styles and ability that is ideally awesome and OP. And if thats unsatisfying for you and instead a let down, Then before deciding to drop this then try the story's world building and politics. It will fill that unsatisfied self of yours. If you dont believe me then try reading this and you'll see that im not least bit exaggerating! <<less

I'll be honest, I signed up just to write this review, this is a 5/5, of that there can be no doubt. When I came across this masterpiece I was looking for a new light novel to read, because I'm a serial reader finding enough material has always been a problem, but even though I will have to wait for more....THIS BOOK IS WORTH IT! I was initially put off by the reviews about how it incorporated Diablo 2 in the story but as it turned out my apprehension was... more>> for not. I won't spoil any of this for you but I highly recommend this book. <<less

look all everyone needs to know is, the MC is a man's man. Though some of the early annoying characters take a while to get rid/killed of... (bad guys that is) but it gets good after.

Another good point is he ain't a pussy when it comes to women.

Dont have to say much about the story, reincarnation/transported to another world, MC can travel to a diablo world to get stronger by copying the characters' avatar. That part is pretty nice, though not really exactly like it was in the game, but that's fine. It's a typical underdog, weak to strong story, but nothing wrong with that, writing is decent, action fun and in general the story is pretty good. The villains are made to hate, but we have a few dark sides to the hero, which is nice.... more>> Not too much kingdom building yet, the story progression is very slow to begin with.

My biggest problem though, and I cant believe the author would do this, the naming. Many characters are named after popular footbal players or generally famous people (Drogba, Peter Czech,Fernando Torres, Paris Hilton etc). This might seem not like a big deal, but it's so immersion breaking and annoying, it's infuriating, it devalues the whole novel, it almost feels like the author is making fun of the reader. I dont know if it's a joke by the translator or the author, but whoever did it, has obviously no idea how to actually write a novel <<less

I really liked this novel in the beginning.

Now it's the 4th or 5th time in a row that random bullies appear and randomly kill citizens.

An entire cavalry just ran through the gate (which is apparently left open over night for some reason) and literally bull rush and trample the citizens for shits and giggles.

I don't hate arrogant villains in moderation, but so far there's ONLY been random arrogant villains showing up one after another kind of like how in Xianxia young master endless loop of grandpa's...

It's incredibly disappointing.

At the early chapter, the story was kind of cool and still had some tactic and strategy to win. At least he wasnt a muscle head who swing his axe whenever he please.


but later on the mc fight like an idiot who think nothing but like a bull.

It is dissapointing because thestory was kind of intersting but it didnt have the factor that give me curiosity to read on

The "real word" and kingdom part is pretty interesting, but the problem is the game part... i ve dropped the novel at chap 40 and 50-60% of it is in the diablo word. It just feels like the author played diablo a bunch of hours, then wrote what he did in the novel. At least when others authors try to fill they have the decency to make up some new names of character and some new area. If i want to know what a quest on diablo is, i can... more>> play on the real deal, thanx a lot.

still 2 stars for the 40% left over <<less

This is a different Kingdom building story from the usually, the usually the King is bullshited over and over and can't do a shit about it. And in this Hail the King the story is different, who ever try to mess up with this king will suffer the consequeses, the trully meaning of being a KING ! Respect !

Until now, this is my fav novel, MC has an overpower cheat, but necessary, cuz it fill the lake of power in his kingdom and others enemy's is too powerfull, so... more>> you could consider his overpower cheat an necessary evil.


Could have more romance involving the King and Princess. And sometimes i fell like the focking arrow girl is conquering Alexandre's King hearth.

Very interesting, reading this novel is kinda refreshing after all those xanxia.

After the cheat activated it got even more interesting, the progress that the MC can make it self is worth it for reading this series

Loving this series right now, it is also my favorite series I have read in a long time. It's just a shame that it doesn't have daily posts, like I know it is difficult to translate but I can still wish right?

I did not think I would like this story, but I still give it a try. It was a good thing I did read it, because it is a pretty good story. I like how the MC is a king, but still acts like he is back on his world. The only gripe I have is the way the MC powers-up, but I guess is is different than your typical info dump on meridians, dantians, etc. Hopefully the translators keeps his pace of translated material.

I've read the raws up to chap 196. I give it 4/5 because it's a little different from the usual.

-- A little different from other xianxia stories, as the mc took over the body of a retard king instead of a ctrash clan member.
-- I like the twist with Diablo 2' game world and abilities. More mysterious things about it to come later.
-- MC is good at using the little things he knows. He can make decent plans inspired from things he's seen or read in his previous... more>> world, unlike other xianxias where the transported guys completly forget everythings about their former world as if they never lived there to begin with.

-- Still not enough infos about the cultivation and the strenght rankings. Just a bit is given each time an enemy appear, which mean we remain largely ignorant even after so many chapters
-- A few cases of the right ability/items gained just before the event where it proves to be necessary
-- Main girl is the typical beautiful pure hearted girl. Nothing aside from that... Yet. At least she wants to improve herself instead of remaining a decoration for the MC <<less

Waffle has arrived to leave a review again. This one won’t be drawn out since the series is just starting up, but so far I just have two things to say:

1. This novel is (so far) amazing, and you should probably read it.

2. Translators… How you even manage to translate this novel to such a high standard even with the foreign Diablo terms simply confuses me… but regardless, you guys do the best damn job I’ve seen so far out of translations. Fast releases and good grammar; simply godsend.

Take some... more>> waffles with you when you go read it. <<less
