Explanation for Soul Foundation+ realm(s) and their relation with cultivation technique.

First off, a cultivation technique is how a cultivator learns to absorb and use qi for themselves. Each cultivation technique is different and will teach different martial techniques at different "layers". 

During the Qi Gathering Stage, a cultivator can only use and have access to the first layer of a cultivation technique. 

Once they become an early stage soul foundation cultivator, it means they have mastered the 1st layer and as such, will have access to the 2nd layer. After mastering the 2nd later, they enter the middle stage of soul foundation and have access to the 3rd layer. When they master the 3rd layer, they enter the late stage of soul foundation and have access to the 4th layer. After mastering the 4th layer, they become a Martial Fighter.

Now, when you become a Martial Fighter, you can cultivate the technique you originally used while learning a new cultivation technique as well. When you learn a new cultivation technique and managed to master the 1st layer of the new one, you will then be considered as an early stage Martial Fighter. The cycle repeats until you become a Martial Lord where you learn your third technique and in the Martial Emperor realm you learn the 4th one. 

Due to the way this cultivation system works, a Martial Fighter who has managed, for example, learned up to the 8th layer of a cultivation technique, can rival a Martial Lord who has reached the 4th layer in two cultivation techniques. While the Martial Lord has higher quantity and quality of qi, the martial techniques offered by the 8th layer are much stronger. 

Just remember that while learning the first 4 layers of a cultivation techniques, it will impact a cultivator's soul world. That being the case, it gets harder to master new techniques as you learn more cultivation techniques because it is harder for your soul world to change.

Spiritual Beasts Ranking

From lowest to highest, with their respective strength compared to human cultivation. There are also early, middle, late stages of beast stages.

Common - Qi Gathering

Uncommon - Soul Foundation

Rare - Martial Fighter

Epic - Martial Lord

Mythic - Martial Saint

Divine - Martial Emperor

Note: Earlier on, common and uncommon grade spiritual beasts are really easy to kill. This is because they lack intelligence and can easily be taken advantage off. 

Clothing

Just for a general idea of clothing and what I mean when I refer to something. 

Robes - either are sect robes or other robes; various sects have their own sect robes with special designs; other than that, people and families with high statuses have unique robes as well.

Dress - aka a hanfu (according to google), worn for various occasions; a short dress also exists which is called a qipao or cheongsam; usually when I say dress, I refer to a long one or I will state otherwise.

Tang suit - usually what I mean when I refer to a shirt, can be worn by both genders; less formal than wearing custom made robes but its like a "middle class" thing where it is better than the clothing worn by villagers and mortals.

Rogue cultivator clothing -  pretty much sect robes but at a lower quality and generally darker colors like black, brown, or gray. You can also add on a hat with a veil and etc to hide identity. Worn by rogue cultivators of course...

      Crazy stuff. No reincarnation? No super power? No hidden grandpa? No OP system? But it's still better than 99% of all other Wuxia novels out there?! Amazing how good a classic Chinese genre can be with solid story telling and relatable characters.

      Status: chapter 75

      TLDR: Give it a go, I was happily surprised.

      I would have rated it 4, if not for the guy that rated it 1 star, if more people review the novel, I will most probably downrank it to 4, but until then, I want more people to read the novel, so I'll give it a 5 for now

      Anyway, chapter 75 is the end of the second volume, and I have to say that until now, the novel has been great, the MC feels alive and other characters have a really nice depth to them as well. 

      The author is developing the world rather nicely, albeit at a slower pace than I expected, at least that's how it feels like, but that's neither a negative nor a positive really, so take that as you will.

      Overall, I recommend it and hope that more people would it give  go

      Status: chapter 37
      Wow, these reviews are really disingenuous. I normally would rate this as about 3 stars, but I gotta balance these out and there is a few other issues.
      .
      This story was very disappointing for me. The biggest reason I have rated so low, besides what I said earlier, is that not only does it not live up to the tags that attracted me to the story, such as the harem, smut, R-18, and fighting too of course, but it doesn't even handle the themes it works with well.
      .
      let's talk about the slavery for instance. I don't mind dark themes and if they're handled well they can be great. This wasn't. The protagonist just doesn't feel like someone you can step in the head space for comfortably without cognitive dissonance or being upset with their choices in a logical manner.
      .
      There are situations where a decent person would purchase slaves for a good reason and not feel bad about it. Like if those slaves are being mistreated and you plan to help. For a practical person you might have the same reason, but make a deal with them to secure their loyalty and full effort in the future. Things are easier when people feel indebted, dependent, or respect you. 
      .
      This protagonist was okay with slavery from the start without any qualms or considerations of any kind and that was a big part of why I dropped and rated so low, but it wasn't even the only thing.
      Minor spoilers:
      Spoiler

      You see the protagonist needed a partner for dual cultivation and you might think that he would want the highest quality possible in that regard or that the writer had some early harem members planned out for that role. There were even two such women that were introduced and developed for the story, but he writes them out of the plot for stupid reasons and right away the protagonist was earning for his first slave. Stupid and illogical.

      [collapse]
      .
      The protagonist's quite frankly is not typical by modern standards of ethics or common sense. (Not a lot off mind you. He is not a rapist or psychopathic killer enjoying himself. 
      He's just a smidgen off modern and despite people claiming he is meant to have ancient ideology, he definitely isn't like that.
      He's off just enough to make reading this unsatisfying because that and his decision making process will stick in your head and that's not considering the other issues.)
      .

      I read most of what's available and even ignoring the ethical concerns? The writing just doesn't cut it, man. The narrative structure is not well planned, it invalidates itself in places, throws out characters it developed as I said earlier, the pacing feels like it's just two steps behind where it should be to be truly satisfying, and the syntax is very poor. The scenes feel more like a dry diary at times, the setting and world building are shallow, and both are flat naratively. Locations aren't really described or built up because they likely weren't even thought of and when you picture the scenes they have no spirit to them. Like take M.H. Johnson's The Silver Fox and Western Hero? The cultivator wear Gi, Qipaios, or other period specific stuff that is pointed out tastefully. The architecture is described and even the landscape. I just want to point out, if you didn't know already, but locations, like cities, are characters themselves that need their own character development. Towns here are just that... towns without descriptions of much at all. It's lazy.

      I'm truly shocked that this novel isn't more popular because it's good, and I mean REALLY good. 

      Cultivation is really unique, interesting and fun.

      Fight scenes so far aren't just "Haha, I'm 2 stages above you, you have no chance at beating me!!!" or two people throwing skills at each other until one of them dies. They don't go on for 10+ chapters of characters just powering up every time they're about to lose. They are pretty quick, and because most abilities can be used in different ways they're fun.

      World building is good, though I do have to say that names and descriptions of sects and cities are on a simpler side. (Which I honestly prefer, since remembering them is much easier that way, at least for me)

      Harem and romance are REALLY good. So far it's one of the best harems i've ever read, and trust me i've read a lot. Harem members actually interact between each other, and it seems like later on they'll even go on adventure by themselves, without MC.

      MC cares about his women, notices when they're in a bad mood and tries to make them feel better, actually has character, and is a really likeable person.

      Smut and R-18 stuff is quite nice. Scenes aren't rushed, they don't feel out of place, and there's always a decent build-up before them. The only problem is that there aren't many of them, but there will be more later on.
