    I don't know. It felt like it tried infiltration initially with the MC's group, but failed due to his fiance.

    Why would they have any mirrors? And why wouldn't they have a way to contact the Duke level teachers that are in there with them?

    How did he get passed the army of Others surrounding them?

    Why is she publicly revealing the secret of Li Luo healing her brother? And why did the beast allow them the time to have a protracted conversation instead of attacking or fleeing?

    This is a xianxia, talking being a free action is very much a genre convention.

    Normally, they can handwave it by having the conversation at faster than light speed via spiritual sense though. That's clearly not what happened here.

    Honestly, there was a part of me that thought he might turn the beast into his third resonance, but I wasn't certain it was good enough.

    If they leave now, then who's going to purify the towers? Isn't that spot basically lost forever if they don't maintain it by keeping it purified?

    "Usually," she said, "people try to sneak their way through the back door with some prudence. Discreetly. Not kick down the door, hinges and all, on the way in." lol.

    "Mentor, I regret everything!" lol. As he should ;)

    "an eighth-grade secret watersource wouldn’t be enough to entice people." Wasn't it already shown last chapter that it would be? Sure, having more incentives is always better, but the 8th grade watersource alone is still more than enough to catch the interest of the vast majority of artificers that don't have an alternate method of getting a hold of one.

    "Xin Fu looked back down at his reflection on his shining blade, lost in self-doubt." Yeah, its not a great idea to damage the confidence of your team members...

    "A three-star formula could reach 65% tempering strength." Perhaps I'm misremembering, but hasn't he already made stuff with a higher than 65% rating?

    I see that he's choosing not to remember that he's going to have to pay to raise the grades of his other four resonant powers as well... ;)

    "Li Luo did not really know how to handle their pessimism, but he did not bother to explain either." So, he did know, but chose not to for no well explained reason.

    It feels like less and less is happening in each chapter.

    "How would he ever face the world again?" By reminding them and himself that several other fifth grade artificers also lost, and lost much more thoroughly? Or perhaps by reminding himself that accusing someone of cheating when the judges haven't is an insult to the judges and is very likely to get him fired?

    "Only the strongest of all the villas, the Skypalace Villa, had an eighth-grade secret watersource. None of the other villas had such a treasure!" Wasn't it said back in the restaurant when he first mentioned the 8th grade water source that the top three villas all had one?

    Isn't the emperor still quite young? Why would the power transfer be scheduled in just half a year?

    I have to wonder why the fight for House Luolan in half a year will even be necessary. Just the skyrocketing fortunes of the Suncreek Villa should be enough to convince anyone who hasn't completely burnt their bridges with the MC and his fiance to switch to their side. Well, unless they don't care about the House in the slightest and are being paid enough to replace whatever resources the House would have provided them for the next several decades.

    "After all, why would resonance artificers want to go to the best villas? It was exactly because they could provide the watersource that would help them improve their refining arts the quickest." I would think that pay, prestige, and various benefits would play a pretty large role as well.

    “I'm not even in yet myself, and I'm supposed to speak up for all of you?” lol.

    "It was a little cruel to compare, but Tang Yun and the others were chaff compared to the fine seeds of the Resonance Artificers Hall." While its true that they have the greater technical skill, its unlikely that any of them have any real world experience, especially in management. There's still a place in the hierarchy for the current staff. Replacing them with green noobies would likely do more harm than good.

    "Is it about His Majesty's healing?" They're in a public location surrounded by people and this is supposed to be extremely sensitive information...

    Honestly, they should have let Hanzhi retire. He's a proven traitor that will happily jump ship at the first opportunity. Better to let him leave if he's willing to make a peaceful exit. Better still would be to arrange an accident for him after he's left.
