It gets incredibly rare these days in CN where MC doesn't just beat everybody with his cheats, so that is fairly refreshing. People saying "where's your backbone" or "MC is too weak", well I find those attributes good for the story. It adds a sense of dread and accomplishment when MC finally fulfill his goal, and not just story of arrogance and picking on the weak. Character flaws are good for a story, and same with character developments, which seem to be severely missing in Chinese novels these days.

However, the... more>> story is filled with irrelevant and redundant information that seem to exist just so author can word pads. I'd give it overall 4/5 <<less

Update from only reading 30 chapters: Can't say enough good things about this story.

If you are looking for a MC who is not OP, uses only magic (no cold weapons), and has to use his brains to survive, this is for you. Slower story, that is full of details, world settings, hidden agendas, fairly unique magic system, and a few other good things that make this more for a mature audience who know that the details make the same used plots exciting again.

Bio Chip is not OP. It more or... more>> less allows him to raise his normal talent up to the level of competing.

Action is unique, as MC is weak and relies on strategy, small tricks, and minions to survive long enough to get stronger.

Supporting cast are well defined, each having their own agendas, and have unique magic powers.

Lots of people point at WMW as similar, but this story has its own unique flair, and does not feel like reading WMW. WMW has more of an underlining of Xuanhuan, where as this has more of a western feel to it. <<less

I haven't read enough to actually judge the story, but what I do have to say is that this novel was a massive slog to read through, and I simply couldn't keep going on. Every single time something new is introduced, there is a 3-4 paragraph explanation, which are poorly written, dedicated to "world building". Even the simplest things like a library or an arena takes one too many lines of exposition for me to continue reading.

The writing style of the author and the structure of this novel is enough... more>> for me to drop, no matter if the actual story is good or not. <<less

A good surprise, as the beginning seemed bad. I recommend it!

Pro

    • MC is really changing over the time. He has a good personality, and knows when to stay low and plan, using his chip. Also, it's always refreshing to discover Chinese characters not being gigantic cold edgelords.
    • Few antagonists, but with personality, way better than the the usual metric tons of arrogant young masters. All of them are interesting in their own way.
    • The world makes sense as a western style cultivation story (with magic replacing the dao basically).
Con

    • All the game like numbers take a long time to be used too, and it almost made me drop the story when reading about it for the first time. There is even HP, kinda ridiculous IMO. The problem is that everyone aside from the MC knows the numbers too, which is weird.
    • Retarded human resources management: way too much deaths in the apprentice adepts ranks to have a really strong organization. They basically shoot themselves on the foot with their horrendous death toll.

Warlock in Magus world type of novel but the main character goes down a magus development path instead

that is basically this novel in a nutshell.

and honestly it is not bad and while its not "new" I personally do enjoy reading some novels that are somewhat of a copy of another novel I really like but retold with the main character going in a different character development route.

just wish someone would pick it up as its currently not having any new releases.

The first thing I noticed was that it was way more gamelike then WMW with EXP, stats (strength, agility, physique and spirit) and limited amounts of spells that can be learned. That's not to say these are bad because the aren't. There's a bit more vagueness than I would like but it's not a deal breaker either. I'll probably update this in the future but as of right now I would recommend adding this to your reading list.

It's better in a sense than WMW because MC is more likeable and less evil than Leylin, the world at first seems more peaceful and friendly but it's about as dark as WMW world, where everyone schemes and backstabs each other, here at least you find some good guys sometimes. The novel feels like D&D often due to spells names and stats, like health, and damage dealt, there are wizard spells like ray of enfeeblement, fire arrow, slow, curse, elemetal summon, hasten and the like, and slavery is much more... more>> prevalent in this novel, like 90% of beings are slaves, and there is bullsh*t about Will of The World expelling people, but in the end it's decent, I wait for more translation. <<less

After reading TMW and reading the positive reviews here, I decided to give this novel a try. But it only took a few chapters to realise I made a huge mistake. The MC is boring, lacks character and is utterly useless. Even with an AI chip hardly anything happens and the story progresses with a teethgrinding pace.

While the authors sadist fetishes are none of my business, having a punching bag as an MC is not to everyones taste. Literally half the story he get's beaten into a pulp for NO... more>> REASON.

There is nothing new or eye catching. No alchemy, potioneering or crafting like in TMW. The MC just reads spellbooks, buys some potions and that is basically it. It takes 100+ chapters before he can do something usefull, like making golems.

The settings and locations are dull and lack interesting lore/details. It does not help that the author has a stupid namingsense. Demon babies, ghost nannies? Get outta here.

And lastly the author just keeps blabbering on withouth adding anything to the story. For those with no taste or time to waste, this is tailormade for you.

10/10 would make me definitly start another medieval bookburning <<less

This is an exciting action-filled adventure series full of intrigue, strategic battle, wicked villains, and creative imagery. The enthusiastic training is full of suspense with the characters' lives on the line. This is a fun, intelligent, and crafty read that spurns the imagination and isn't afraid to make characters ugly. During steps of their journeys, the characters evolve and change their appearances, which is refreshing to see.

The first twenty chapters are pretty slow, but things speed up drastically once the action starts. I strongly recommend sticking with it until the... more>> battles begin. The strength of this writer is clearly in the action scenes. Greem is relatively weak and knows it, so he uses his intelligence to save his hide.

The romance is awkward and seems more like friendship to me, but I didn't come here for that anyway. There are some inconsistencies in the plot rules and development, but the story is stimulating enough to make up for it. <<less
