    I really hope the MC will continue to struggle in the future. I'm too tired of OP MCs.
    Although... isn't his luck quite good? He got to revive in the past, met some strong people, got new shiny skills... Is this still <possessing nothing>? A better title would be: Possessing Nothing but Luck.
    And his luck till now may turn soon... I feel that even with the harshness of Mush's Mountain something really bad will happen soon, too balance things out.

    @doroppu Luck or not he's still miserable. He was miserable before time travel, and even more miserable after because he has all these sweet skills but can't be OP as his base ability sucks. All those 'lucky' encounters just feed his ambitions which push him forward on the harsh masochist training route. Also his greatest misfortune of being kidnapped to another world without cheats can't be erased by any encounter he had so far.
    P.s. Now I actually wonder what would Mush do if some extreme masochist somehow gets in the mountain. Would Mush be happy with a such S+M combo or angry because he won't be able to make M suffer?

    I agree with you there. I seem to have forgotten that.
    Real suffering, for a S or M, would be normalcy/gentleness? So Mush could, probably, still punish them?

    having a chance to learn something doesn't imply that it was for free, the far more likely scenario is that he could have bought some crappy spells if he really wanted to but he only had so much money so he prioritized his life and bought armor or some other more useful thing.

    Also, the main character didn't trust anybody. So he could either learn a spell that takes months or even years to learn and even then would need someone to protect him while he cast the spell or he could spend the money on something that allows him to save his own ass when things go south.

    Mush could theoretically do that, but as M would be chosing his "hardship", he can take a bunch of physical ones and on the mental level Mush would be powerless.
    Take taste for example. Bad food makes ultimate M suffer and feel pleasure as result, but if food gets better to achieve opposite effect? No downside to M at all cause good food tastes good. Duh... :)

    Hehehe I got it. Exactly 3 chapters. He's out. Now we can see how much he actually improved! Wreck some arrogant martial artists! Kill some terrifying monsters!

    I personally would have liked to have learned more about the other two. And he never learned any assassination skills from blind guy.

    Nothing so dramatic, he was originally aiming for 2 years and ended up doing 3. The 1st thing to do is obtain those opportunities he was aiming for on his list.

    He'll actually die. Unless he takes really specific penalties but then they wouldn't be of any use of the don't make him suffer.

    3years of suffering, good thing it's already over, I wonder how much growth did sungmin get on that harsh mountain. Maybe he's now comparable to 1st class martial artist? Or even more...?

    He will revert back to his non talented usual self after getting them restriction off will he..
    Sure he grows a lot faster in the mountains, but he will slow down alot outside of it.. no?
    And I doubt his growth on the mountain can be on par with the geniuses outside... even with all its boosts..

    Mc's dont die from hardships. They become incompetent, stupid, cowards who can't even hold hands with a girl, but they don't die.

    Most likely the result of training is:-
    1. Perfected basic weapon & movement skill proficiencies
    2. Improved basic strength
    3. Blindsight/Blindsense
    4. Ironguts
    5. Improved Iron Will

    He was just an ordinary person with nothing special about him then. Death, is what made him the MC.

    Hey, we've got pathfinder player here.
    These aren't actually that overpowered for a protagonist. He's still going to take forever to master the high-rank skills he's got.
    Still waiting for the day he actually becomes OP.

    The reward mush gave to him is to fu*cking helpful! For a talentless Mc like sungmin to think the goddess specially recommend an excellent guild and exclusive play store to easily solved his lack of talent. as long as you got money buy something good to boost your potential. The reward is to good GL sungmin!
