Dropped! Do not recommend to read!

As usual.. Boring story. Summary, MC is a good gamer. He is sent to another world to fight monsters. Somehow, he receives his game abilities that are the same as his game character. Then, having battle after battle. The story keeps repeating non-sense battles. That is all. There are small stupid plots in the story but I will skip here.

Main Plot: sending to battlefield--> having a difficult fight but win with the help of cheat abilities, cheat teams or combining abilities with his... more>> team mate (girl only) --> gaining new cheat items and abilities --> receiving a ranking promotion--> sending to Battlefiend-> having a difficult fight but win with the help of cheat abilities, cheat teams or combining abilities with his team mate- (girl only) --> gaining new cheat iteam and abilities --> receiving a ranking promotion ~~~repeating.

1. Game system allows MC to cheat. He gets his game system because he is good at playing a game (when he is alive on earth). He does not use much afford to level up. In the story, MC seems to be in life and death situation. However, he always survives and wins all battles due to his cheating abilities. I wonder.. On earth, is there only MC who plays games? Why he is the only one who has this cheat game abilities. Among thousands of people, only MC has it.

2. God gives MC many cheat items as reward because many people who respect other gods shout MC's God name in the battlefield. His God also blesses him, it makes him hard to die. Cheat again.

3. From a huge group of people, He is the only one in his god's army. Unbelievable! Cheat again. Others feel envy because he always has his beautiful trainer by his side.

4. Girls who are in MC team always have abilities that can combine with MC abilities, this gives MC extra fighting power. After fight, almost all credits are given to MC.

5. MC always has extreme bad luck. Everywhere he goes, he always encounters very strong enemies (but MC beats them all times). After battles, he has extreme good luck to get cheat items or cheat abilities (dropped loots, rewards, or disclovered treasures, etc).

6. Relationship with other characters is so shallow. Ex. MC has an interest for a girl. He tries to protect her during a battle. At the end, she dies. Her death allows MC to obtain very small tiny bit of his memory. That is it. Nothing is developed from that. Very idiotic plot. MC friends are nothing. They are created to be tools for MC during his missions. They all have one dimension personality.

This Korean novel has boring story. Nothing is new. Just think about it.. Moon light scriptures (only one who has such unique job), everyone is returnee (only one who live in the world and always has a fairly' support), Seoul station necromancer (a lunatic has a cheat ability with double warrior and necromancer jobs). These MC has unique cheat abilities. If you just start reading novels, then it is ok to read. If you are a experience reader, do not waste time to this junk. <<less

Korean novel and mythologies, with a basis in norse mythology and some celtic myths.

The MC has just one love interest even when he interacts with goddess and valkyries AND there is a slow progress with her as the history goes.

Some side characters show personalities but the novel focus in fights and missions, giving little time to reveal more of them outside of combat. Also, most people are well know brave (thickhead) warriors that died in battle (required to go to Valhalla), something that gives the author some leeway to focus... more>> in few like Bracky and Siri.

The warriors in Valhalla have missions constantly regardless of their number, which gives a sense of urgency in the novel. This is more so for the MC because his fast grow and prospects makes him stand out and be forced to more important missions and battles, which in exchange makes him stronger and make him have more missions.

As the novel progress, more relevant backgrounds plot is reveled and the reader makes a more clear and wider mental image of the world around Valhalla Saga.

I personally think is a good online novel. <<less

Honestly all I can say is that it's decent, it's a story of a gamer sent to a world of warriors who are a bit lacking in common sense and only knows how to fight without caring for their lives, praising the names of Gods like blind believers.

There is no real depth in the characters, the plot is straightforward with logic urks occasionally. Only read it if you have nothing else to read and want some 'snacks' to munch on, basically imo it's overpraised, overhyped and overrated but all in... more>> all it is still better than some (most) of the top ranking novels here which are complete garbage, at least, this is readable.

And probably the fact that it's KR helps, with all those KR praise-boys everywhere, if this was released in let's say, a year or two it would prob be nothing special. <<less

I can only say this (PROMISING).

... more>>

The system goes like these:

There are Magic, Runes and the typical cheat that a novel need to differ from others SAGE.

Until now there's not magic or rune explanation only SAGE and sage explanation is that it a kind of Magic (mythical thing) that is developed depending on what were you doing or achievement you got in live, since our MC is a Pro G** I mean Pro-Gamer with a really good Avatar (Kalsted a warrior type avatar with the blood of a dragon) with many histories going around his avatar that have so many fans that where crying, panicking and laughing at him, probably because of that he developed his SAGE named (Immortal Warrior) and was picked by a Valkyrie and bring to ASGARD!!!!!!

I'm reading chapter 3.2 and so far is really good, cause is not overly saturated with created fantasy things, well, in the form that is based on Valhalla and Asgard etc. Etc..

(Sorry if you do not understand my review, I speak Spanish and I'm not confident in my written English)

It's a bit too early to give a full review so I will give a simple and short introduction of what I've read so far. The MC is a pro gamer, who died while playing in some kind of Tournament, afterwards he finds himself in a hall surrounded by warriors where the story starts, afterwards the story continues on a battlefield where he has to beat monsters to get stronger, how does a useless gamer do it? Of course by merging with his game character. The system is pretty interesting,... more>> he doesn't get skills like in other games, but "Saga's", basically a "buff" from something he achieved. Hard to explain without spoilering anything so just read it yourself :p

Overall it's a bit refreshing and the style of the novel is pretty good, overcome the first 2 chapters (they are a bit confusing and it's not that good or special, so you may think it's the normal MC reincarnated stuff, but it is different in a good way :3) afterwards it gets really interesting, so I simply recommend this novel to everyone who likes good reincarnation novels and new stuff:) <<less

The Development of the characters are stable and not fast faced. The MC isn't really Overpowered that much and for me is balanced. The story as of now is Good but it's still early for me to judge it :) :) But overall its Novel is really Promising

Have only read whats been translated but already loving it and potentially one of my favorites. Has some light comedy in it but also interesting action scenes and MC seems quite calm and collected. More importantly, MC is strong and has insane potential but hes not cheat level OP right at the start which is nice as we get to see him get stronger. Potential romance I think? If it is then im looking foward to it if done right which so far its fine. Also fair bit of world... more>> building as you get some general information at the start about wheres hes at and places around him which a lot of novels fail to do. I feel that once he gets strong he'll be tasked with more important things and plot will thicken and become 3x better since right now hes still learning and improving his saga. Big thanks to translator for picking this up and hopefully author doesnt screw this up by falling to usual cliches that 90% of novels have (MC f** everything he sees, arrogant as f**, doing stupid sh**, or whining 24/7) <<less

The start is great. A very very promising novel. Its a bit early but I like the MC seems to be not the typical all knowing trope of Korean MCs.

No time travel. Not inside the game = a good KR novel

2.5/5 mediocre at best. Below average time waster.

Rpg gamer becomes his character at lvl 1 in a war. The MC comes to terms with it and fits in immediately at ch.1 and begins grinding levels. There is nothing to this novel but grinding for xp against mobs, and creating new skills once for each boss fight. There is absolutely no substance to this story. There is the occasional beauty he interacts with, otherwise there are no side characters. All the other characters are one dimensional idiots cut from the same... more>> mold. I stuck it out for much longer than I thought I could, but I’ve dropped it. Even as a filler this is barely tolerable. It’s only saving grace is the only moderate amount of repetition.

Tldr. Mindless rpg grinding, don’t expect anything more. <<less

To be honest I am a little disappointed.

The story started pretty good and it is an interesting concept, but it rapidly developes into a generic MC gets rapidly stronger plot with slight hints of a harem.

At least his plot armor got an explanation:

it is the blessing of his goddess

So far so good, it has a good story pacing and you could also see a good world background here. Although it has a fast paced action you could still enjoy reading due to the fact that it has no unnecessary elements including in it.

hmmm well I hope I could write more details on this review but the chapters are still not that much so bear with this one. All in all I could see a good and promising novel on this one

This is really good!

The writing is solid, MC's improvement is also great, and most importantly, it's not boring at all even though there are only battles until now.

There's not much of world-building since it's always a battlefield. But I believe that it's only because it's still early.

It'd still too early to really tell if this novel's going to be amazing or not, but it's definitely a breath of fresh air. Korean man in Norse mythology. Some "Game Like" elements, but explained in a Norse way. I'd be surprised if this novel is less than a 3 star by the end, but depending on how it's developed, this novel could definitely become a 5 star novel.

Definitely has extremely good potential. You just need to read 1 or 2 chapters to see the potential and type of story this could be.

So far no generic cliche thing is found, which is very good. I have big hopes for this one.

The story seems interesting. I will edit this later.

Right now I have a problem with


Him telling the Valkyrie his achievements were only from a game and that he is not a 'real' warrior. It would be pretty awesome to make everyone get awed by your achievement.

But can't be helped since he needed help with runes and etc and him not telling the truth might lead to trouble.


But that is just me wanting it to happen in a way I want it which is ridiculous so don't mind my rant.

Your brain is will turn into muscle if you read this too much. The story pretty good. There's nothing complicated about the story at all. A bunch of muscle (both brain and body) guys go to war after another. There's no tactics or strategy at all. But this what made story good. And MC loves to ride on people (girl only). The worrier that rides valkyrie! The worrier that rides on his female comrade! I wonder what will he ride next...

This is a type of story I really like. There are a lot of Deus ex Machina moments, basically relating to his main superpower he gets at the beginning (it doesn't have much to do with his Goddess blessing...). The reason I find this reasonable though, is the superpower is designed from the start to gain new abilities at critical points, after completing an important objective, it doesn't just happen randomly, or feel like it is pulled out of the author's as* so that he can keep the story... more>> going.

One very important thing is the MC's personality of consistent. This is actually a strong point in general with Korean vs. Chinese light novels. MC's in Chinese light novels usually degenerate, even if they have a playboy/evil personality, they get a lot worse as the story goes on, or lose that special aspect that they had at the start. Korean MC's usually stay consistent. I think this is the biggest reason Novel Updates users generally give higher ratings to Korean light novels over Chinese light novels. The second biggest reason is Racism/s*xism pops up a lot less.

The side characters are very well developed, there are quite a few of them, and they don't disappear after just 10-20 chapters.

There is an overall story-line, and it is being stuck too. The MC is going to new places, but it is not a copy/paste of what happened in the previous locations, and the locations themselves are quite interesting in how different they are. <<less

I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. It has a very interesting concept: powers could be had based on the legends and stories attached to someone while they were alive. Somehow very fitting for a Norse-themed environment.

I'd like to give it a 5, but I think the execution on this is somewhat lacking. The story could have been incredibly more rich since it has a gold mine of a concept to draw on. Unfortunately, it's given a very light treatment - there's hardly any tension since MC breezes past all... more>> obstacles. Any unfortunate scenario that may happen is answered quickly by the appearance of a new power that can handle it. Paper thin characterization as well.

It's still above a 3 rating though since with all its shortcomings, it is still an interesting page turner. I just hope that it improves as time goes by and not go the way of some K-novels, becoming stale and predictable in the later chapters. <<less

What an original story! Instead of bland cliche skills and magic it's Saga (the power of a warrior's legend) and Runes (attribute point allocation).

I can't help, but laugh at the hilarious premise (Pro gamer playing a knight character on an mmorpg dies from a heart-attack during a duel match (probably too many energy drinks and not enough sleep) goes to Valhalla for his game character being recognized as a legendary warrior by his e-sport fans. So embarrassing!), which is so very creative and seems to make sense.

When I was a... more>> kid I thought Norse Mythology was really interesting and would read about it at the local library. Such an out of place Asian main character fighting trolls and giants alongside the Valkyries of Asgard... never thought I would read something like this. <<less

MC that went to Valhalla mistakenly cause of him having a story (saga) of a warrior, which is his character. Read as he slowly becomes his game character and at the same time get more story (saga) for himself and not his character.


He becomes a holder of Gae Bulg becoming a disciple of Cu Chalainn and Scatach gaining a story (saga) of Erin
He also currenly holds Excalibur gaining story (saga) as King of Camelot
