3-4 * for starting and second major arcs (~2.5k chapters or so), 1-2 star for 3rd major arc (~2500+)

Major spoilers

Spoiler

I enjoyed the story for the most part through the Saint world and immortal world, though there were ups and downs, but the story took a definite nose-dive after JC reached the divine world (3rd tier realm). He's basically stopped using most of his old stuff aside from spamming the dragon moves, he "feels something wrong" and doesn't use his divination/future reading technique anymore (from immortal world, was extremely useful for him). One of his newest spam techniques is fusing heaven thunder into a bomb to try and wreck everything, and every time he uses it people go "there's no way he can use it" etc. Add in all the other complaints from other people giving poor reviews and you get a picture of the divine world arcs.

I stopped at 3100 because I got tired of the author just making almost everything go wrong for JC for "drama" or whatever reason he has, and he's actually noted the story is less popular recently which as some of the commenters put-people usually don't enjoy reading about a character they like continually getting crapped on for stupid reasons or no reason at all, and for most of his work to keep getting undone-see friends and allies keep vanishing/getting possessed/kidnapped

JC basically gets shoehorned repeatedly into being against just about *everyone* in the local region, often times for reasons that are utterly absurd, and he keeps losing his allies/friends/wives that either wander off (best outcome) or are possessed/kidnapped/betray him for the umpteenth time-the 3rd wife of his Qingcheng (beautiful woman) -that's how the lmntl pages keep calling her and I saw someone make a quip of "Qingcheng (useless woman) " and it's fitting-she has been possessed and attacked him at this point no less than 5 times, including getting cured and then repossessed by something else shortly afterwards. There was one point where he reunited with QC and Wu Ningzhu (badly injured from... something) and actually stayed together with them and the monkey he became friends with even after the arc ended and they were moving on. I had snarked at the end I was surprised he still had anyone around. Cue 3 chapters later-monkey wanders off to train, QC gets possessed yet again and runs off after taking a few pot shots at JC, Wu Ningzhu gets kidnapped by.... someone and JC is chasing after her before a****** #8945894 comes out of nowhere to attack him a few times and block him long enough for Wu Ningzhu's kidnapper to get away, and JC is once more by himself. He's also spent quite a few chapters just being attacked in succession by endless morons from random regions.

JC now has the habit often going extremely far to get treasures that he himself needs before a friend pops up with an injury or just wanting it, and he'll give them the best stuff that he himself also needs. It's nice that he cares and helps his friends/family, but he goes too far with it to the point where it hinders his own progress.

JC's also developed the bad habit of being exceedingly/stupidly forgiving of even random women that backstab him and either let's the go for whatever reason or actually helps them even after they tried killing him. The one woman who he *should* be friends with or stay around more though he's left behind in some random sect somewhere before he left, and he's run into other women he's come into conflict with many times repeatedly and at least one time helped save one woman's clan from outside invaders before leaving-though at least in that case he was more helping the woman's sister that he didn't know was related, and the sister was a cool character (widow with kid, so off limits to JC) that was sane and reasonable.

All of this aside the *single worst part* of the story for me was the arc where the new cockroach Xuanyuan Canglan is introduced (Nanbei Chao is finished off near end of immortal world, JC lets him survive in a new reincarnation after wiping his memories, and it's implied that NBC will pop up again at some point as an ally to JC since they were noted as being similar and if they weren't enemies from the start, they would have been good friends). Canglan is the epitome of all that is wrong with this novel-a****** who should have died 1000 chapters ago, keeps getting bailed out by diabolus ex machinas and absolutely STUPID "allies", keeps showing up just to harass JC and complicate things and escaping barely while swearing "I'll get you if it's the last thing I do -Gadget- Jiang Chen!", and adds nothing to the story but sure takes a lot away from it. During his initial arc Canglan was big evil mastermind of the area and had set up what was apparently 10x reincarnations over 70k years to resurrect "some big demon thing" that ended up being the Taotie so he could get power. Lots of plotting, arrogance, murder, etc. and JC meets a "friendly enemy" from the same group as Canglan that ends up being a pig teammate and getting Canglan to gun after JC for his treasures after JC saved the friend since the friend is nice but Canglan is a greedy a******, who teaches the "friend" the lesson of "what I want, I get, cause I'm stronger than them" and the friend is sad but accepts it-this also comes up later when JC is off doing other things while the other groups of people are being attacked by monster hordes and the friend+canglan could save JC's friends, but Canglan says to leave them to die and just steal their stuff-the "friend" accepts this too even though he is "sad" about it. Towards the end of the arc where everything is going sideways and most of the people are dead, the Taotie appears, starts killing everyone and backstabs Canglan, before JC appears and saves everyone, including killing the Taotie. Cue Canglan pulling out magic plot BS #434 and absorbing the now near-dead Taotie and getting a big power boost and then he goes on to try and eat everyone. JC saves the day yet again and destroys the physical body of Canglan/taotie and is about to finish Canglan off (actual permanent killing him, not just "he's dead but not really" like NBC before) before... out pops "friend"! To... save Canglan! Despite knowing Canglan is evil and against him, and was planning on killing him too, "friend"/pig teammate blocks JC's lethal blow and Canglan then backstabs him and absorbs him while "friend" asks JC to let Canglan off despite knowing all of Canglan's crimes... and that Canglan even literally backstabbed and murdered him to try and get stronger and get away. Cue JC being angry at Canglan backstabbing his ally and trying to kill him again before the sealed world they're in goes to hell and Canglan gets to get away alive. This would be bad enough, but tolerable since it isn't the first cockroach around to escape. No, what makes *this* the worst part in the entire story is after Canglan gets saved repeatedly by bulls*** so he can get away to harass again another day, he pulls some mass brainwash move out of his ass so that everyone thinks JC was the evil b******* who was killing everyone and that Canglan was the hero. This came out of *nowhere*, was never hinted at or mentioned or used again, and happened *just* so JC would be forced to be hated by everyone again when he seriously deserved to at least get either some recognition or at least *not* be a manhunt target for once. This ends up with the *entire* province wanting him dead because of his "crimes" that they used as justification to attack him and when he killed those that attacked him, that led to more people trying to hunt him down as revenge for that. He is of course forced to abandon the sect he was in so they didn't get brought down too, and then had to go on the run *once again*. As far as I know, Canglan is still alive and pops up from time to time just to be a pain in the ass-he is even worse than NBC.

At this point I'm waiting for JC to find and reunite with Chenyu again (ice girl he met first) and actually *keep* her around rather than having her run off, backstab him, or get possessed. Or for the story to end and just read recaps of the remaining chapters to see what happened afterwards

"Disappointing"

Just this one word came to mind after I read it till ch800

In the name cultivation novel, this whole thing is a pure sh*t.

... more>> *Spoiler*

Before the Divine continent arc it was still acceptable but after MC and his friends get into Divine continent, everything become absurd, every ally of become so much powerful in the cultivation road in such a short time that MC feel petrified. Remember

Our MC (reincarnation of greatest saint) has the best cultivation knowledge and whatnot but still fall behind by his friends. Even his wife (2nd, don't remember her name) become arrogant after coming in Divine continent and directly challenges MC to defeat every genius and only then he can marry her (even if she was the one who infatuated with mc). Also the naviety that our MC (ex-greatest saint) shows is on another level. There are still lot of things that is pure nonsense and repetitive in this novel that makes me really really dissatisfied.

Her skin is like jade. That said, it is a cruel novel that seems to think ugly people deserve humiliation and death.

The MC also thinks castration is a good punishment for being rude, most of the enemies so far aren’t even deserving of anything other than being ignored. The author seems childish.

Simple novel with simple plot. Travel to different region, some arrogant asshole appear, MC power up, then killing time. Rinse and repeat. Really, if you like MC who use force against force like MGA or PMG, then this story is for you.

MC is like:
*Ruthless like Jun Mo Xie from OEM
*Knowledgeable like Jiang Chen from SOTR

There are few points that looked the same as OEM and SOTR, but still it is a good novel to read. If you like reincarnation theme, with knowledgeable MC, ruthless MC, and so on. You should read this novel.

I recommend it to the readers, so I declare!

Things that make me cringe (so far) :
... more>>
Spoiler

1. The ugly girl who has a good heart (she cried seeing her supposed husband dead) is considered 'not only an eating machine but also there is something wrong with her mind' like wow so if she's not pretty then she can't even feel sad? And then MC saw the incredibly pretty girl his heart immediately moved and he felt sad seeing her sad, like just seconds after they just met. Regarding judge people by appearances, MC is not so different from those villains and side characters (who also judge him from his appearance).

2. Past MC was a cultivation maniac with no love whatsoever now he saw the pretty girl and fell for her right away, to justify it author dropped a line 'now this life he wanted a normal life'. Umm please take a good look back and tell me what's normal about anything you've done so far.

3. Formulaic 'get OP magical pet and heavenly OP beauty' before the real adventure.

4. Rinse and repeat nonsensical offended enemies who conveniently throw themselves at MC for the tiniest trivial (or none at all) reason just to be turned into blood and gore.

5. Passerbys, watchers and villains blabber long and nonstop how MC is too reckless arrogant fated to doom (even monsters mock him with their eyes orz) then after he wins they either praise him or regard him as genius/demon with charisma. Everyone blabbers the exact same thing over and over and over. Also too much 'you dare to hurt/kill me?' and then 'please don't kill me' 'u can't kill me'.

6. Treasures fall a little too conveniently into MC's party. They are tailored for his party members to lv up like waaay up up and exist in wherever MC goes when they actually don't have any reason to be there at all.

[collapse]

Other than that, so far the story is pretty fast paced with decent cultivation technique. MC regards friends, enemies and innocent people clearly and deal with them accordingly not just kill kill kill no matter who accidentally get involved. His mindset has been firm and fairly consistent.

After reading a bunch of novels with awkward and immature writing, I have to add that this novel has better story telling than many (minus the repetitive trash talks from crowds+villains), with a good amount of humor as well as fun sass from the main character troupe. <<less

Great novel overall, but like most xianxia it has the same problem, author introduces main characters then discards them after a few hundred chapters later, MC travels and somehow forgets everything about his life, family, and friends that were once his fighting team. Why do xianxia novels do this, I mean they once helped you but after you get powerful they just leave/ascend and never look back its pretty damn annoying, the author could have wasted 10-20 chapters and focus on the lower beings after MC became super OP.

I swear... more>> I have never read a xianxia that makes the MC look back at his beginner days and come back and make some sort of heritage before leaving the world, every single xianxia just decides to throw away all the character that have been used and can be used no longer, never mention ever again. <<less

The novel is fast paced and exciting to read. The MC is talented and is also ruthless as well. This, however, is pretty refreshing to those with MCs that are half assed with their killings. He eliminates all his troubles in one go. I don't think that "ugly people" are being bullied in this novel. Most of the enemies are pretty good looking. This is not for the weak hearted, and definitely not for those who thinks castration can't be a punishment for being rude.

Hmm, it only gets worse? I don't know what the reviews saying it only gets better are talking about. There is no story here and all characters are 1-dimensional. It's just a powerup story. I'd say Martial God Asura is a better novel than this.

If you're bored, then definitely read it. I skimmed most chapters. You can skip a lot of descriptions since they're repeated every single chapter. Dialogue is always the same. The only things that change in this webnovel are the villains and territories. Oh and cultivation levels.

Mm just same like another xianxia. Talk with fist than brain. MC was not Smart type, and for the plot. 90% you can guess what will be happen next. Bad guys dead, new bad guys come. And on this novel MC always right. Even MC commit a bad thing. One thing that make me read this novel til c285 is the cultivation of MC, it easy to understand. Ex:if he can get 100 mark then he levelup.

Go ahead. Maybe you will like or maybe not.

Same type of MC like TDG and SOTR in that he is a reincarnated person that knows far more things about everything than the other characters do, knows how to get under others skins and destroy them. However he is also quite ruthless and if he wants you dead then you will die sooner or later but you can't really hate him for it. So far it just gets better with every chapter leaving you wanting more.

This series is the stereotypical xianxia trash most of us ordain ourselves to read when we're scouring for long series to kill time.

> MC is basically a sociopath who kills anyone who pisses him off, and not in some "Sin City" cool kind of way, but the cringey teenager god-complex power trip kind of way. And for some reason, I'm not sure if this is a translation issue or not, but the characters describe his ruthlessness as "brave", and not just when he's following the series' formula of "fight some... more>> random dude, random dude is backed by strong person, power up, kill them, move on" that the entire thing is written as. I mean, that's typical-ass xianxia, so that's fine really.

>Overly convenient plot points.
Spoiler

Main character's girl gets attacked at his sect after making friends with the sect leader and another dude, but instead showing gratitude they both f**k off on cultivating at the same time to allow the kid villain of the arc to basically try to rape her, so she ends up near death... and the sect leader doesn't punish anybody for this when he comes, doesn't give a f**k. It's all a convenient plot point because the author lacks the creativity to write for the female character so he drafted one of the two lazy excuses used for the female love interest to go away: they need some miracle medicine in a coma, or they are just phased out because they can't compare to the power level. And this most recent chapter? 278, with the Flood Dragon. In what f**king world does it make sense that the protagonist somehow thinks its a good idea to let the newly transformed Flood Dragon go? He has no qualm mass murdering random demons to eat their cores, and by essentially taking this Flood Dragon's blood essence, it's like the mortal equivalent of taking someone's cultivation away (which is considered worse than killing them) all for this arbitrary excuse of "we're both fighting against the heavens", which is just bullsh*t. The author just didn't want the protagonist to get a power jump too high so he made this bullsh*t excuse.

[collapse]

Other than these kinds of semi-rare primary events where sh*t happens that makes no sense to progress the plot, it is standard xianxia fare so it'll work for most people looking for a mindless read.

> You want characters with depth? Other than the main character, who is the psychotic wish fulfillment character who fails to act as a blank slate to the world, the only real character that shines is
Spoiler

a divine beast talking dog-like creature that apparently has Dragon Horse bloodlines?

[collapse]

Basically the epitome of Id; unrepressed hunger, lust, possessiveness, and so on as a character. Now frankly, this isn't my first rodeo, so this isn't the first time I've seen this kind of character before. Despite how it might be a little bit too much of copy+paste in a paraphrased format, overall it's probably the best character? I mean, is that compliment that the best character is basically stolen..? Ahh...

>Like most page-view based series, there's way too much bullsh*t repeated context. "The red blade, which as you know last chapter, was from Edwin's son, who was raped by a chimpanzee, echoed loudly the sonorous skills of a deflated balloon. The deflated balloon emotionally shook the consciousness. With a high scream, the blade goes towards the enemy. 'No you don't!' 'Break for me!' He grits his teeth while he sh*ts himself thinking of scat porn." This is all one f**king move of a fight. Thankfully the bullsh*t elongation of scenes may be consistent, but each scene isn't Dragonball Z level of making a fight 30 chapters. Not that this series couldn't be compressed to 1/10th the length if you cut out the filler-level context and repeated subtext.

So overall, yeah it's mediocre. But you're probably going to read it if you've gotten to this point. It's not going to kill your brain, but it's also not going to encourage a single novel thought. <<less

The main character is extremely consistent. No getting nerfed or doing dumb stuff for plot/tension reasons. He was the greatest saint and he acts like it. Big Yellow is also the funniest character I've seen in an ln. The fight scenes are good and the magic/cultivation is well explained. The world building/history is fairly interesting, although not to complicated. The writing and plot aren't the most amazing thing ever but this novel isn't trying to be a masterpiece, it's an easy reading, kickass and often times funny kind of ln.... more>> Take it for what it is and it's highly enjoyable. In fact, its the best ln I've seen in the easy reading genre, hence my rating of 5.

Also the translator is exceptionally fast and will sometimes release 50+ chapters all on the same day. <<less

Why this novel has a 4.3 avarage vote is completely beyond me.

It makes absolutely no sense. I'm not one to write reviews being overly critical of novels, and usually I do it just to support it, but this score made me feel cheated.

Here are some of the stuff that completely bothered me, there are a couple of spoilers till chapter 6-7 I think

... more>>
Spoiler

MC reincarnates and in 3 days goes from lvl 1 basic sh*t to lvl 8 basic sh*t that can even defeat lvl 1 of the slightly better than basic sh*t realm.

To that, there's also basically no description at all to any characters - besides an ugly girl that is so poorly narrated that I only thought of her as troll rather than a human.

Also, MC makes a bet with a random young master and the wage is that if young master refuses to fulfill the bet (carry a casket home), then that would be admitting his whole family was "bastard".

Novel makes absolutely no sense and not even in my wildest dreams would I imagine that this novel got a 4.3 score on NU.
I mean, I don't even think it deserves a 3.

This novel is on par with CCM. Hell, I managed to read even more of CCM (200s). At least the premise was interesting.

Honestly speaking this novel is rather good provided you're reading for what it is rather than hoping for something it doesn't promises. It's a better version of PMG and SOTR combined with less stupid enemies and no focus on minor character who gets dozens of cvapters for their monologues (SOTR ~_~).

I don't get why the most popular review complain about torture and jade skin. That's a common theme in Chinese novels and the novel offers plenty of reasons for why MC tortures the enemies in that way. The fight scenes... more>> are exciting enough and the MC is fun. Sure most of the plot is repetitive with stupid enemies but honestly that was rather expected from the synopsis. MC has the advantage of his reincarnation like other novels but it doesn't means he knows everything. Sure he knows most of the stuffs in Saint Continent but he's totally unaware of things about Immortal realm so it makes things interesting. Besides even the land he knows has changed due to his actions from previous life so it's exciting. <<less

This is a fun novel. The MC is an arrogant unapologetic soab who kills if you cross him the wrong way. His first 2 enemy families are the only ones who he deliberately pissed off. The rest of the time he is just getting screwed over by a yellow dog that has lord fifth as his teacher. This story is about the journey to the center from the fringes of the world.

Edit: Down to one star because this novel is just so extremely stupid. Otherwise, everything I've written previously still holds true.

Recommended: If you've got a ton of time and have read all the interesting novels, well, DMWG is probably not the absolute WORST novel on the site.

This is one of the most bog-standard cultivation novels being translated. Hypocritical MC, swooning ice-cold beauties, flat arrogant young masters, shameless comedic wingmen, disbelieving peanut gallery, casual misogyny; you name it, this novel has it, often repeated ad nauseam. If you've read Emperor's Domination,... more>> DMWG is basically that with everything distinctive and interesting taken away from it.

On the other hand, like fast food, even though I know it's utter crap, I still find myself returning for more because it's convenient and I know exactly what I'm getting. If you're just looking to waste time and you don't mind the same generic xianxia plot being repeated over and over again, this will deliver exactly that. <<less
