    It's a Xianxia novel, not much more has to be said as a lead.

    Immortal dude gets knocked to the mortal realms to discover that he's powerless and can't cultivate, but rather than needing to cultivate, he simply needs to "lift the seals" on his being to regain powers.

    The problems of xianxia plagues this novel quite heavily, but luckily the scenarios don't include ALL tropes.

    Tropes existing:

    -Jade beauties immortal fairies 

    -Uncle/Father/old ancestor/ancient hermit monster "IMPUDENT" (Offend one to start the chain quest)

    -Evil young masters who play pokemon to "catch beauties" and pretty much say "kekeke" in half of their sentences when monologuing their evil plans

    -Every "good" family has a "Goddess" in it, they're magically the same age and have all been childhood friends

    -Obviously the MC keeps secrets and wants to remain low-key when he can practically rule the city if he just asked.

    -"Special legendary rare physiques" Naturally the "jade beauties" all have infinitely rare "physiques" that appear once every billion years in the immortal realms that are inhabited by trillions, even though the story takes place in some undeveloped mortal realm with 20000 or so total population

    . Okay that's enough rambling. Author did avoid the "Tournament", "Oppressive young master in academy", "Auction", "Secret grounds opening every 50000 years", "Precious rare herb treasure" and a few other tropes.

    Writing quality is about the same as a translated chinese novel, 3/5

    Novel isn't really bad at all, it's probably in the top 30% of xianxia, but it's not particularly good either.

    Chapter 19

    Read the review of Basiun, the only thing I can add is that the descriptions of the beauties is extremely stereotypical. Sincerely I've read better wuxias that use the "face-slapping" or other typical clichés. Personally, the "oh you saved me! I will follow you for the rest of my life!" Cliché  and  the cliché of the super-mega-rare constitution is what piss me off the most. The women use absurd phrases like "you're my World now"... And they're in a world where they don't  have a cultivation method, they almost don't know what's chi... HOW the f**k they get those constitutions!?  Here are a couple examples of... you judge 

    Chapter 99


    "However, a woman's intelligence is high and more, when they set out to achieve something no matter what, so her mind records everything without forgetting the slightest detail: "Big brother don't want to fool me! You said that if I could find you in three days, you would teach me to be stronger!"

    She just remembered what he said and for that the author praises her like that?... 

    Chapter 155 


    You may wonder why I'm in love with you when we've had so little time to get to know each other."...  spoke again: "That you saved my mother made me grateful to you and felt that I could never repay you, but when you protected me from typical  cliché  I felt that you did it without expecting anything in return even though you could get into a lot of trouble with the typical cliché  family. Just like you saved me and my family recently when another Cliché guy  came to our house with all those demon beasts. Those actions of yours made my feeling for you stronger, and even more so, at this moment that you came back to save me again. These days, I realized that I had fallen in love with you..."

    I don't know... It feels like the pheromones of these girls go crazy when someone save them, it doesn't matter that they know nothing about the guy.. if he is funny, boring, idiotic, smart, arrogant...

    Oh but is just a typical behaviour of wuxia novels

    Status: Chapter 317 (Vol 2) – Recalling the Past (10)

    One of the best wuxia stories on ScribbleHub!


    Riixhie has somehow managed to write a fulfilling Chinese inspired wuxia story, while still avoiding the many tropes that plague the genre. There's no reincarnated lucky protagonist, no/nearly no face-slapping, no standard trope system or grandfather-in-the-ring OP artefact. 

    The MC is OP, yes, and he has some plot armor/very lucky coincidences - but what makes this story great is the down-to-earth and easy to understand characters. 

    TWotD has quickly become my favourite novel, and I'm eagerly awaiting more chapters as the story progresses.

    *Edit at Chapter 317 (Vol 2) – Recalling the Past (10) :*

    So more than 250 chapters have passed since my first review and quality has been consistent, with the plot moving at a good and steady pace. No filler, nor useless arcs, unless you call good smut filler. But the best thing so far, has been crazy, insane, and absolutely mindboggling release rate that Riixhiie has been keeping up. I barely have time to read all of the chapters before another massive release burst is done. And mind you, quality spin both terms of writing answer plot have been consistently good. No shortcuts taken.

    Another thing, in the later chapters, is that there's a good amount of R-18 content, but for me that's perfect. I always wanted to find a good Wuxia/xianxia novel, with a decent MC, and feel-good smut, where the MC is devoted to love interests. This isn't Profany Prince of Domination or some other smut cultivator who rapes and f**ks every vagina on 2 legs; yea he has a harem of 5 girls, he has tried to keep it to 2, but through trials and effort the 3 other girls prove themselves and they end up together. Good thing is; he is devoted to them once they're accepted.

    While I can understand the POV of some of the other reviewers, one has to understand, that this novel doesn't reinvent the wheel of the cultivation genre, it just does the genre very well while keeping typical tropes to a minimum. So if you want something familiar, while still keeping things fresh, and can tolerate a little bit of convenient plot armor/lucky encounters, then I suggest you dive in.

    Status: chapter 5 – more powerful than legend...

    So far it's a generic xianxia. If you don't like overly detailed and kinda creepy (as someone commented) description of every potential harem member he sees, then this is not for you.

    The author didn't bother to build up or explain the world and just throws vague words around which is confusing. how are we suppose to know or react to things when we don't know what they represent/mean? oh oh? his power got sealed coz he fought the heavenly dao?  we dont even know how strong he is in the first place (other than he is an immortal) and what the heavenly dao represents in this novel so why would we care? oh oh? he got a tree inside him and then he got struck by lightning coz... why again? oh so he can be nursed back to health by a jade beauty lmao.

    tbh im no writer myself so I won't comment too much about how to write, but atleast build up your world first, we dont even know how strong the power rankings are and the author just throw around xianxia terms without context.

    Standard "junkfood" cultivation novel with every single stereotype and trope in it..

    The strongest Immortal who live tens of thousands years but with brain of junior high schooler, girls with a beauty that could shake the 7 heavens and 9 realms, every single guys is horny guys but not the MC, everyone except the MC have a minus IQ while MC's brain just like another "junkfood" protag novels, too many stupid, cliché, BS plots and useless dao of taking and beside that the author really loves to nerfing MC's power..

    Sigh.. Maybe I set the bar to high after looking the ranking and rating score or maybe this not my piece of taste..

    I know this is his first novel but listen, I don't care, I value my time!

    I've read until ch 55 and it felt like a chore so I just decided to stop and move on.

    Some of my complaints: the MC gets nerfed to sh*t and the "I'm so pitiful, why u do dis Dao!" got old quick, young masters constantly spout nonsense, jade beauty this jade beauty that (MC still not enough of a man to make a move), ignorant elders court death, author writes the MC into dire situations out of nowhere, annoying cliches.

    By the way, the dude who reviewed the novel saying "no cringe cliches" is literally lying, one of the female characters around the MC is a cold-faced jade beauty fairy who is in pain every night because of her extreme yin heaven defying legendary physique..

    It's easily one of the best martial arts novel nowadays. No cringe clichés, good character development, no throwaway harem members (more members please) and a good plot. Best regards to the authour and hope this novel will continue until the end.

    I really am enjoying this story! Even though it's sort a typical xianxia novel, I would still say that it's one of the best xianxia's I've read, since as someone else pointed out, there aren't as many of those annoying tropes that are commonly recurring. So author, keep it up, don't stop updating, and have a nice day!  :3

    The MC almost always acts like a doormat. He was the strongest immortal and still is one of the strongest beings in every world he is in, but he NEVER shows it. The trope is always the same, Character acts like 3rd grade villain, MC takes it all lying down, some female characters try to defend him and fail, someone who knows his power saves him, he keeps taking sh*t, he finally reveals who he is, all the female characters from before fall for him.

    That trope repeats all the time. It is so tiring to read about how powerful and great he is, but he doesnt do sh*t. So much could have been resolved in 2 chapters by simply showing his powers but no, he has to keep them hidden to see how his people act. 30 Chapters later, it finally clears up, a few good chapters follow, then repeat.

    Its funny how harem novels typically have a problem with characterless woman, this novel suffers under a characterless MC. 

    My rant aside, if you want to turn your brain off and read a cultivation novel as a filler until your novels get more chapters, this could do the trick for you, but do not expect a cultivation masterpiece.
