Are you are looking for manhwa with original story, a well develop character, an amazing and unique art, and the great enjoyment and hype of an awesome power fantasy? Than this is the one you've been looking for.

So, that's a 6 but a 6 as a cultivation manhwa. If i'd be to mark it as an artpiece, I would put a 2 despite the fact I pretty enjoyed it. Like, you know, entertainment doesn't always mean quality. However, it has no pretention of being anything else than an entertainment.
Ergo, to conclude, ...
