    Is it worth it?
    Is it not?
    Please give me a little bit of details and some of your experience and feelings when you're reading this novel.

    A grand xianxia adventure with a non-offensive MC. Not much of him being a bloodthirsty ahole for little to no reason and no need to worry about him raping anyone.

    the more u ask about a chinese novel the more u feel its not worth it....

    just read it, if it doesn't interest u then drop it.

    nuf has people who hate and like cn novels for different reasons, if u ask them u are only going to get a mixed answer.

    the best way to judge is read the synapsis, then check the tags. dont read the comments. its mostly filled with twisted spoilers.

    The first few arcs are pretty enjoyable but as usual with these types of novels it gets kinda dull and repetitive as it goes on.
    But I would say it's one of the better novels on NU in this genre

    That's a pretty low bar if you ask me.

    On the spectrum of xanxia novels, it’s pretty high quality. Characters you actually care about outside of our main character. Great world building. Deep lore. Interesting cultivation system. I highly recommend it.

    I haven't read it but I presume after 300-500 it becomes the same shit over and over again just on a bigger scale?

    Why would you read martial world when there is true martial word ?
    Why would you read true martial world when there is peerless truer martial world DX deluxe ?
    Why would you read peerless truer martial world DX deluxe when there is absolute peerless even more truer martial world DX extra deluxe against the heavens ?
    etc... Now go read invisible dragon. :blobpopcorn_cool:

    True. But at least it feels planned. So that the stronger enemies he faces later on in life are foreshadowed well in advance. Instead of wiping everything out. New world appears. Start at bottom. Rinse and repeat. Cause there is repetition. And then there is repetition. The later implies no end, nor forward momentum. Just being stuck at a new starting line. MW isnt like that. What happens before helps the MC gain tools and knowledge he uses to get ahead later in life. So while it does share the some of the flaws as everything in this genre, its built on a more stable foundation so its not as glaring.

    I thought it was decent for a fairly cliche xianxia novel. Probably one of the stronger aspects is the world building, there's mysteries set up early that you come back to much later, so that aspect feels more cohesive. I tend to like to see character relationships develop even if the focus is action and I felt the series fell short here, most of the time there would be an interesting setup but then the MC would always go off on his own to train instead of working with other characters, get super strong, and move onto the next area with new characters. At times it kinda sort of seemed like it was going to keep old characters involved in the later story, but they never play any kind of significant role. It kept me reading, but I felt somewhat disappointed by the end.

    Still true. Though maybe we look at that phrase differently. For me its worldbuilding and foreshadowing. And enemy hinted at early in the novel becomes a key antagonist 500-600 chapters later. An item found isn't instantly useful 2 to 3 chapters later, but pays off a 100 chapters later. Insights grow instead of being replaced by new techniques. Events in chapter 1000 are the culmination of events from chapters as early as 100 or so. Stable foundation. You can tell when an author has no idea where they're going and is just making up stuff as they go along: Martial God Asura, Peerless Martial God, Chaotic Sword God. And those that are pretty good at planning their stories out so things have a sense of momentum and continuity. Martial World is the latter. The author's followup novel--True Martial World--started out that way too, but then got really lost when the author started to listen too much to reader complaints.

    No, want I meant stable foundation is akin a meme (along with jade beauties and junior, you dare, courting death etc.) in the chinese novels.

    It is a pretty decent novel.
    I enjoyed it, at least until chapter 500 +
