Xianxia novels aren't my usual fare. I started this one since it was so highly rated and the reviews were mostly good. I love this story. The world building is fantastic and the premise is great. The translation is first rate and the translator's notes has allowed a xianxia noob like me to understand the author's intent. There's a certain repetition of the MC's growth and the author has a penchant for providing the MC with plot armor, but it's nowhere near as bad as some stories are. The author... more>> has also built the groundwork for a harem, but had the MC stay true to a single love interest all the way to current.

I like how the author has never made the MC to be some sort of saint or paragon. To be frank, the MC is a bit of a con-man, and bullies more than a few minor characters. Money is a huge motivation for the MC thus far, and the MC freely admits his greed. Later on as the MC progresses and matures, other motivators develop (some good, some not), and his goals change, like real people do.

On the con side of the story, the author tends to over emphasize certain actions, as if to build hype or a sense of climax of a situation. At first it was a nice writing tool, but 700+ chapters later, it's been very over used, and is an indicator that the MC (or other major character) is about to do some heaven bending action. Also the author seems to have decided to clear the character board every so often with a major conflict now and then. A couple of these conflicts have had very, very sketchy reasoning, other than to bump off a lot of minor characters that have accumulated and to allow the major characters to show off their bad-assedness. <<less

A great story, mainly fluffy and light. MC isn’t focused on becoming the “strongest” and has no set goals other than enjoying the game. Think of this story as a laid back slice of life set in VRMMORG. There’s no overarching plot, and don’t expect any super dazzling insights to gameplay. Read as a lighthearted story and you’ll have a very enjoyable read.
