    It wouldn't really be pointless, since turning into fog also helps with things other than just not being detected, like slipping through cracks or attaching himself to the ceiling, but it would definitely make fights a bit less interesting.

    Taren going to be the final boss after he finds out Nick released the Crimson Sea.

    Taren had lost his girlfriend when the Crimson Sea broke out, and he now aimlessly walked through life.

    Yes, the world did have multiple paths in the beginning that were eradicated by the mages. But Shang isn't there to restore balance or something. Excluding the fact that due to his unique affinity, the world is getting destroyed as a side effect of him growing stronger, the god has told him himself that he no longer has to help the other warriors and his only purpose is to entertain him.

    Review as of chapter 630. Might include minor spoilers but I'll try to keep them to a minimum. Short Version: Stop scrolling through reviews and just go read the novel! Long Version: I'll start off by saying that this novel is simply amazing. Stories like this are what keeps me from just deleting the app due to the sheer number of unreadable nonsense it has. Now for an actual breakdown: Writing Quality - The quality is simply top-notch. No grammatical mistakes, clear and concise sentences that flow into each other beautifully, as well as smooth transitions between different points throughout the story. It's obvious that the author has improved in this regard by quite a bit, compared to his first novel (Lightning is the Only Way), which was already incredible by Webnovel standards. Story Development - The novel is slow-paced for the most part, and especially at the beginning, but I find that positive in this case, since we get a better look at the struggles Alex (later Shang) has to go through to adapt to a completely new reality where his life is constantly on the line. There are eventual time skips in the story, which are unavoidable simply due to the fact that you can't become a Sword God without hundreds (quite possibly thousands at this rate) years of training. Character Design - This is the biggest reason for this novel's success. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is fleshed out in such detail that it wouldn't surprise me if the author one day revealed he has been studying the human mind for over 100 years. As for Shang himself, the many hardships he has gone through and the eventual revelation that he is, for reasons I obviously won't mention here, the enemy of the world (Opposer vibes 馃槈), have made him resolved to do whatever it takes to reach his goal. He will sacrifice anything and anyone for power. Updating Stability - Not much to say here. 2 chapters a day plus the fact that the author is an absolute legend. Broke both his arms at some point and somehow still pushed out chapters until he was eventually forced to take a small break. World Background - We get a basic understanding of how the world works and how the mages have complete rule over it early in the story and get more and more pieces of information in regards to the powers they wield, as well as the nature of the world itself, as the story progresses. Admittedly, there have been a few instances where the author goes into too much detail about something that isn't really relevant, but that isn't nearly enough to make the story less enjoyable, at least for me. Overall, this is truly an incredible story and I highly recommend it. Truly impressive work so far, Heat. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

    I think you've misunderstood something. I don't know what gave you the idea that Shang was sent to that world to make it better when it has been clearly stated both in the novel description and in the story that the only reason he's there is to entertain the god.

    The raws ended years ago, my guess would be that the translator is slowing down releases due to the novel approaching its end.

    In chapter 187 the dean mentions that he didn't even attempt the third level of the mage category.

    In the second one, the Dean had managed to gain 8 points. Three against the beasts, four against the warriors, and one against the Mages.

    Seems like Shang is becoming the bane of warriors more than the bane of mages xD

    Now, it was more like a +1.2.

    Yeah, I can already foresee the political problems that will arise when he gets stronger, such as people not allowing him to just leave the faction whenever he wants.

    "Fine, the cheap option, it is," the Dean said.

    I'm assuming this isn't a choice here since the dean already planned to share the technique to the strongest warriors of the academy to further the warrior path. I imagine the duke wouldn't be very happy if the dean gave the technique to every strong warrior for nothing but demanded something from him.

    "I'll talk to Jerald," the Dean said. "If I am willing to support his heir, Mattheo, he could maybe convince Mattheo to get the ore for you."

    My guess is that if he accepts, the god will want him to kill Viera due to her wanting to eliminate all the beasts, since the god wants more things in his world that can entertain him.

    I believe they're probably copies of the originals as you've mentioned. I don't think the god would intentionally damage the total strength of the warriors when he's been trying to raise it.

    Did the deaths affect his mind xD Beating a powerful Early Adept would get him 6 points, for a max total of 22 points.

    He's probably referring to the arrow that was supposed to curve to the ground. She spun it by 180 degrees so it would curve upwards instead.

    Shang gritted his teeth. 'She spun the arrow by 180掳 before firing!'

    Uh, did you somehow skip over the part that mentioned him beating the first two mage levels during his first trial?

    A slower start in comparison to other novels isn't always detrimental imo, especially in this case when there is an actual development throughout the novel so far, with a logical progression of events. The mc didn't suddenly get this completely new op ability that came out of nowhere, no it's something that has been explored on many occasions, and new information regarding it will probably keep getting provided as the story goes on, as I imagine there's more to it than just this. As for his ability to fight beasts of a higher level, it has been mentioned on several occasions that it only works like that due to him having fought an incredible amount of beasts, which tend to fight in a straightforward way, but not nearly as many humans, who can actually employ tactics, hence his battle style not being suitable for them yet.

    I'm just the slightest bit bothered by the fact that the author keeps switching between kilometers and miles, as well as meters and feet, to describe distances.

    This makes some sense, but in that case, shouldn't he be able to wield all affinities? War really likes confusing us all...
