    Why is both Wuxiaworld and Fivestarspecialists translating this, but with the latter being 100 chapters ahead? I only recently started reading this, and I'm confused. Is it just to clean up the early translation mess (sorta)?

    As I understand it Void quit translating. Fivestar took over and decided to redo the earlier chapters as well. After a while he moved to Wuxiaworld to get better conditions.

    But earlier this month Fivestar posted Xian Ni chapters on his own website?

    Well, thanks for your answer, that did clear it up a bit.

    Think he is posting the new chapters after the gap on his new site and the re-translations on Wuxia until they catch up to 180. Not entirely sure how they are doing it, up to them.

    They felt that the Void didn't did justice to earlier chapters so they retrasnalted them. But old readers wanted new chapters from where Void left....So to satisfy both they started translating both old and new chapters.

    They are posting earlier chapters on Wuxiaworld. After they catch up to where void left (around Ch.180) they would move all the chapters on Wuxiaworld.

    Its pretty hard to tell the old readers "come back in 6 months when ive caught up to 180 chapter" and expect them to show up so each week he does 1ep for the 200+ chapter to retain some of the old readers.

    Why did he redo the already done chapters instead of resume it?
    it's baffled me.

    Probably felt the quality of the chapters was too bad. They are worse but not so bad that I can't read them.

    Can't speak on how the translator feels but from an economical point of view having all the chapters from the start is worth a lot in readership. People drop out of a series part way a lot of the time, so having the earlier chapters is probably worth more than having the latter ones (on a per chapter basis). If the quality early on is good there should be an increase in reader retention and thus page views of later chapters as well.

    I hope Wang Lin would go to his wife now that he has reached Soul Formation.

    i like how the author here has clearly explained to the readers why each stage is a thing and why it's in the order it is.

    Rex and Lucas has been on a role this week, 6 old chapters released bringing us closer to 180 by 33 chapters. Seriously I can't wait until I can bing from ch.1 till the latest new chapter at the time the old ones will catch up!!!

    So lucky! We had suffered from countless cliffhangers. It's unfair that you won't have to suffer from them :(

    Tbh i cant wait until the ancient gods body arc, i think when he was researching those arrays its was one of the best things to read. That arc is similar to the alchemy arc in violet sect, where instead of the mc fighting and killing he just researches to reach perfection, it was amazing when i was reading with void and cant wait to read it again with rex's translation

    I just gave up on this story. I am not excited for him progressing a realm or what he will find in the celestial realm. It will likely be 1000 chapters until the item he got at the start is finally completed as well and he has no focus on trying to solve it when it would likely make the entire visit to the celestial realm pointless.

    (Reminds me too much of ISSH currently, which I also dropped but much further in. The arc of going back to mortal made me hope for it but it now seems to be going back to the prior trend of fighting and treasure hunting. Chapter to chapter nothing is happening, getting another pet doesn't have any impact and feeding his generic pet he doesn't care about. Eh. )

    It's nice to see the mc among the big shots of the planet ,he .
    But i guess he's still the weakest among them 'couse the strange old man said that he will need to use the straw hat correctly , which Wang Lin can use to not get detected by the proving of divine sense , so i guess is bite and hide lol ?
    Another hard trial for Wang Lin , it's as if others mcs are playing a game in easy while Wang Lin is playing in legendary lol , well at least that's how i view it.

    Wang Lin is finally enjoying his life for once. Glad to see that the Universe isn't trying to screw him for once.

    Damn this chapter was all about face and yet it was satisfying , normally i'd say that face is owerrated , but it's just that in Xian Ni's world ;face is so difficult to get that it hasn't been deflated . Wang Lin deserves respect.
    it will be interesting to see how Wang Lin fare compare to other spirit transformation experts , i'm guessing he can handle mid stage ST experts with relative easy and run away of a normal late stage ST and maybe kill one if he goes all out.

    Looks like he knew about it as he even obtained it. Sometimes, this novel is really real; the characters keep interacting between them and are, in a way, very real - their emotions, actions, toughts and characteristics remind me of an actual person; that's one of the reasons as for why I keep reading this novel.
