Because of his innate talent he couldn't break through the 3lvl without external help and refined a relic that needed a herbivore to devour a young virgin with good talent (he used the granddaughter of someone who made things difficult for the MC and the granddaughter annoyed him, blame her bad luck that he needed this relic)
It's rather interesting, this novel isn't just about getting money and fame from the game like in basically every other VR novel, but rather a test/training set up by the government, to get a better foothold on the new planet and increase the chances for every individual to survive. Of course our MC also has his cheat and it's the most common VR cheat, that he goes back in time and of course exploits it like crazy, while solving the regrets that he had in his pastlife. At the beginning the novel was rather casual and except that the gametype was new, plus the rather interesting setting it didn't have much to offer, but later on, as more and more content was added the novel got more and more unique and sometime later the author also slowly got the hang of how he should develop this novel, so as the novel goes on, it simply gets better and better, of course the repetition of war that is common in kingdom building novels can be a bit annoying or even boring, but it gets balanced by the new content that gets added along the novel. The only thing that really bothered me was that the human relationships get somehow neglected as the novel goes on and that MC focuses more on the game than other things, of course this is justified, because the MCs responsibility grows along with his power, this is simply a personal preference.
Overall I would highly recommend this novel to everyone who likes VR novels, Kingdom building and novels with unique cultivation system/modern cultivation, as long as you can overcome the rather casual beginning and don't hate the war and management parts :3
He starts to slowly trust others again, enjoys his life and not just the game, makes rational choices of making money with stocks through his knowledge of the future. As the time goes on the Value of the game becomes less and less for him as he realizes that the game is in the end just a game.
It's okay, just a little slow and the real life part gets less and less as the novel goes on which is a bit disappointing for me. As one can see the MC is pretty overpowered, but is luckily not invincible. Even with 1800 chapters the role of the female interest is still open, because somehow all of the girls have a good impression on him but nothing further. If you are interested in VR Novels I can highly recommend this one to you as it has a really realistic and unique setting, the only fault I have with this novel is, that the author is a bit forgetful and sometimes implements things that he will later neglect.
(I recommend it if you are bored :3)
