The only thing that is good about Portal to Wonderland is two things about his cultivation. The first being is that instead of being a dragon or phoenix bloodline/abilities it was an ape. The second was the barbarian technique with the snake becoming apart of his abilities. Worst thing is the author just forgetting basic things in the story. Like you said about the money but the one that bugs me the most is that when he went to fight the three headed python I am pretty sure that the first scene that mentioned the snake said that it was guarding an egg but after that the egg was never mentioned. He should have taken that damn egg and had his first spirit pet from that. Would have been awesome with the mc riding around on a giant three headed python.
