What Others Say
I like this novel. MC is not an extreme cheater. In this novel, Treasures does not drop from the sky in the hand of MC. Also, MC does not have a item or spirits with him that can explain anything and everything. He builds and receive items from his effort or via his connections. It is much better than WDK King of God, etc. This novel makes more sense. MC grows up by himself. He may have some support but not too much. He puts effort to his cultivation. Some chicnese novel such as Battle through the heaven, world of cultivation, WDQK, wizard world, warlock of the magus-world, etc. They have a spirit or god like AI to help. These Chinese novels are BS and nonsense. Friends have strong connection to MC and not easily discard. Some may not be mentioned but it is in natural way. MC grows and have some missions. So his friends are not mentioned at the time. I like this aspect. I hate novels such as warlock of the magus-world and God and Devil World. They discard all friends, family and even enemies because authors have no idea to create more plots. Spirit blade mountain is better in this aspect. MC also does not too op. I hate non-sense killing like PMG. Someone hate you = kill, insult you= kill, Someone need your treasures = kill/steal, Someone kill your friends or relatives = kill a whole sect clan, or family for revenge. This no -sense killing story is BS. Oh and MC does not have extreme selfish and stingy personalities in the same way as MC in Korean novel. This is good. In the end, I recommend you to read this novel. There may be good and bad plots in the story but overall is ok.
Honestly this is probably one of the best Xianxia novels currently being translated. Especially for people who have read a lot of Xianxia novels, this story is like a breath of fresh air. It has a unique protagonist in that the main character relies on his allies to help him fight since his fighting style primarily focuses on defense. Because of this, the side characters aren't relegated to being just an audience for how cool MC is. Additionally, the cultivation progression is pretty reasonable so there isn't a high character turnover rate (at least as of right now) so the top genius generally grow alongside the main character as the story progresses. Additionally unlike most Xianxia novels rather than straight up fights of cultivation vs cultivation, many of the fights and challenges in the story rely more on the protagonists intellect and craftiness than straight up strength. There also aren't any instances of cannon fodder arrogant young masters either, the MC's opponents rarely underestimate the MC and usually are pretty smart and pragmatic themselves. All in all, a great story for people who like Xianxia but want something new. The MC is pretty shameless though, and as other reviews stated he is very defense focused so don't expect him to be slaughtering hordes of enemies or anything so your mileage may vary depending on that. One thing to note though is that unlike most Xianxia, there isn't any strong pressure or calamity that continuously pushes the MC to develop so the pace and tension within the story is a lot more relaxed. Although that's not to say there are no stakes, just that instead of failure meaning death, it just means a setback.
