MMORPG: Rebirth of the Legendary Guardian


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The phoenix is a creature of legends, a wonder of the world, an imagery of life and destruction. This fabled creature signifies the rise of a hero in a virtual world where battles occur for the sake of honor and glory!

Zhang Yang was a professional gamer in the first and most fantastic game that revolutionized the world: God’s Miracle. A game where traditional knowledge in RPGs did not matter anymore, players would have to manually target and evade attacks, giving rise to a significant gap in skill between a professional and an amateur gamer.

Zhang Yang’s downfall came a little too soon. His girlfriend was snatched, his guild was harassed and disbanded, and he was even driven to commit suicide! Jumping off the top floor of a hotel, Zhang Yang seemed as though he was soaring like a phoenix. Little did he know that the end of his life also signified his rise from the ashes!

Bascially a rip off of kings avatar.

First 10 chapters were good, then it sorta went downhill after he joined the parties/dungeons. Half of the next 15-30 chapters will be about other members of the party calling MC newb, but when they see how he is in tanking and dmg they got full idiot mode. Meanwhile theres one guy that gets especially jealous only to make an idiot of himself. Afterwards you will see the mc forming parties and getting world first while sharing loot with other people. I read up... more>> to chapter 30ish before i stopped cause it got so boring. Story has been very predictable so far. <<less

Have no complaints about the novel. Its a okay restart game type setting. Certainly not the best, but I'm mature enough not to complain about originality or top tier writing when the author certainly wasn't aiming for it. At least its a skillful OP character rather than a dozens of OP equips or special classes found one after the other.

Tentative review.

A well executed if not particularly imaginative entry in the genre of reincarnated VRMMO players trying to change their future.

The best part of this so far is that the author 1. keeps the action moving and doesn't waste time describing the exact minutiae of every move the MC makes, and 2. keeps the game mechanics/skills simple and easy to understand without dumbing them down too much. This allows him to focus on the what rather than the how, leaving the reader to fill in the blanks with their imagination... more>> (and isn't that a great part of reading?)

If it continues on at this level, it will be a solid 4 stars:
Worth reading if you like the genre a lot or are totally new to it, but not if you are tired of the tropes. <<less

There's nothing much to say with only 10 chapters but the reason for the second chance is pretty much lackluster and have been used countless times in other novels.

How should i say it? The first 10 chapters feels like every novel that involves second chance, vrmmorpg, reincarnating years before the start of the game, etc. The only thing refreshing is the class of the MC which is a Warrior - Guardian (as the title implies).

If you're still not sickes of VR pro gamer reincarnated years before the start... more>> of a game because of betrayal or being too weak then you will like this one.

As for me. ☕️☕️☕️ <<less

Takes the MC 5 seconds upon waking up to be 100℅ sure he travelled back in time. Seriously? Wouldn't your first thoughts be wondering if you were day dreaming or experiencing deja vu? The completely unbelievable, "oh I must have time travelled back into the past" is so ridiculous that it ruins any suspension of disbelief I had.

Also, why are there so many WoW clones even in damned vrmmo novels? Is it really that difficult to come up with a different system? Makes me wonder if all these writers have... more>> actually played an mmorpg or an rpg before.

This and The Great Thief are almost as bad as one another. Copy and paste WoW dungeons, skills, characters, item and classes. One dimensional MC focused on making money in order to right the wrongs of his past life. Honestly, it's almost as if these writers are using the same template as a guide.

Why can't these writers spend one day to come up with a different system? They take plagiarism to a whole new level, it reminds me of that dark souls novel rip off on amazon. <<less

Generic, if you are someone who have read gaming novels. Closest comparison is Reign of the Hunters, another title whose internal game is heavily influenced by World of Warcraft, except that the MC in this one is male. The MC doesn't go out all of his way to be a loner like in Emperor of Solo Play.

It's another do-over story, a guy gets transported back to the past and returns to what he knows best: gaming. At least the author had the decency to mention that the MC does not... more>> have the business acumen to take advantage of his future knowledge in the real world.

The story flows very directly and like other novels in the genre the emphasis is on the game and it far outweighs scenes in the real world. Basically you'll be told that this game is a global phenomenon and to be great in the game can have real life implications.

The first 13 translated chapters does not offer anything new as yet and there is nothing that make it a must-read. But of worthy mention is the extra footnotes describing the gaming mechanics to those who are unfamiliar with MMORPGs and thus make it a gentle introduction to the genre for the uninitiated. <<less

Grammar: 3/5
Writing: 2.7/5
Story: 2.4/5

The grammar is fairly standard with instances of awkward wording/phrasing, misspelling, and incorrect word choice. The writing style of the author is just slightly above average, but not really good enough to keep a constant flow going. The story itself is fairly standard without much innovation thus far, taking heavy influence from common MMO's such as World of Warcraft and others (though it feels most dependent on WoW).

Overall, I am enjoying this series.
