MMORPG: Rebirth of the Legendary Guardian


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

The phoenix is a creature of legends, a wonder of the world, an imagery of life and destruction. This fabled creature signifies the rise of a hero in a virtual world where battles occur for the sake of honor and glory!

Zhang Yang was a professional gamer in the first and most fantastic game that revolutionized the world: God’s Miracle. A game where traditional knowledge in RPGs did not matter anymore, players would have to manually target and evade attacks, giving rise to a significant gap in skill between a professional and an amateur gamer.

Zhang Yang’s downfall came a little too soon. His girlfriend was snatched, his guild was harassed and disbanded, and he was even driven to commit suicide! Jumping off the top floor of a hotel, Zhang Yang seemed as though he was soaring like a phoenix. Little did he know that the end of his life also signified his rise from the ashes!

You want to read a good VRMMORPG novel? Well, this isn't it. If you are new to the genre, there's plenty of other stuff to read before you're forced to read this piece of work. Even though there are some inconsistencies, the story of the novel is bearable and while there are a bunch of useless explanations, those can be skipped. However, the characters of the story are straight up trash.

Very minor spoilers:

... more>>

The two girls that the MC most frequently hangs out with are literally more detrimental to him than his enemies. They make his progress slower, constantly steal his money and equipment, and are generally ungrateful for anything the MC does for them. Characters you would want to punch in the face if you knew them and the type that would not have any friends. MC's best friend is a near rapist and the another party member literally almost shot him. There are only 2 people in his party that are remotely decent people and even they are one dimensional.


If you really have no other novels of this type to read and can bear with abusive party members, then go for it. Otherwise, try something else.

First: anyone calling this a rip-off of (insert novel here) must be new to light novels because they're all pretty much rip offs of each other.

Second: this novel is genuinely terrible.

I was into it for maybe the first 50 chapters, but then things changed.

Here are the top 5 reasons you should not read this novel:

  1. Terrible plot with tons of repetition
  2. Harem is already forming, including underage girl
  3. Supporting characters are one-dimensional and stupid to an irritating degree (Fatty Han's pervyness as an example)
  4. MC puts up with so much sh*t from party members (at one point one of them cheats him out of a lot of money and he treats it like a joke)
  5. The way it is written, the description of skills and classes and really everything about the game, shows the author does not know the first thing about MMORPGs; it is completely unrealistic from a gaming perspective alone (not even going into all of the other problems).

The lack of description makes it move quickly. However, whatever happens doesn't

really matter. Some moments have potential, but the writer is unable to capitalize on them. The story's not awful, but it doesn't have just a few problems either, and is poorly written.

-Weak characters. A poorly constructed MC, the crappy rich-young-master antagonist, a generic harem of beautiful women who all need the MC to save them, other players rarely exist and are even more rarely given any depth.

-The writer's terrible with basic math and logic. Numbers used, whether counting amounts or time, don't make much sense, and translation errors don't help matters. You can only do your best to ignore them.

-Awful descriptive abilities, usually doesn't even try to describe.

-No sense of greatness in the MC's endeavors. There's a lack of worldbuilding, and major quests and dungeons are uninteresting.

-Other problems from bad writing and lack of thinking. (Copper above steel? C'mon bro.)

Takes the MC 5 seconds upon waking up to be 100℅ sure he travelled back in time. Seriously? Wouldn't your first thoughts be wondering if you were day dreaming or experiencing deja vu? The completely unbelievable, "oh I must have time travelled back into the past" is so ridiculous that it ruins any suspension of disbelief I had.

Also, why are there so many WoW clones even in damned vrmmo novels? Is it really that difficult to come up with a different system? Makes me wonder if all these writers... more>> have actually played an mmorpg or an rpg before.

This and The Great Thief are almost as bad as one another. Copy and paste WoW dungeons, skills, characters, item and classes. One dimensional MC focused on making money in order to right the wrongs of his past life. Honestly, it's almost as if these writers are using the same template as a guide.

Why can't these writers spend one day to come up with a different system? They take plagiarism to a whole new level, it reminds me of that dark souls novel rip off on amazon.

Basically a rip off of kings avatar.

First 10 chapters were good, then it sorta went downhill after he joined the parties/dungeons. Half of the next 15-30 chapters will be about other members of the party calling MC newb, but when they see how he strong of a tank he is while out damaging the dps, the idiots go full derp mode. Meanwhile there's one guy that gets especially jealous only to make an idiot of himself. Afterwards you will see the MC forming parties and getting world first while... more>> sharing loot with other people. I read up to chapter 30ish before I stopped cause it got so boring. Story has been very predictable so far.


The MC sure loves to give strangers items worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in rl cash, on top of that theres this new big breasted girl that always seems to get lost (while stumbling upon world bosses, whom the MC help kills) calling MC a newb and taking advantage of him, and guess what, the MC seems to actually like it. With how the author is describing the MC, he can pretty much solo anything, but yet he chooses to give others credit. If the side characters weren't so useless I would not care as much, but they're just there to either insult the MC or praise him and call him a god.

Tentative review.

A well executed if not particularly imaginative entry in the genre of reincarnated VRMMO players trying to change their future.

The best part of this so far is that the author 1. Keeps the action moving and doesn't waste time describing the exact minutiae of every move the MC makes, and 2. Keeps the game mechanics/skills simple and easy to understand without dumbing them down too much. This allows him to focus on the what rather than the how, leaving the reader to fill in the blanks with... more>> their imagination (and isn't that a great part of reading?)

If it continues on at this level, it will be a solid 4 stars:
Worth reading if you like the genre a lot or are totally new to it, but not if you are tired of the tropes.

I'm done with this. Seriously.

It was an almost OK time waster for me, but I can't take it any more. The last chapter killed me.

This is the story of a professional player of a MMORPG named "God's Miracle" who fell in love with a girl who once was his enemy. Sadly, the girl came from a rich family and our unfortunate soul of an MC wasn't wealthy enough to keep fate at bay. She was then forced into an arranged marriage and during the night of her weeding,... more>> the jealous husband decided to visit our poor MC to end his life (because why not). After an intense fight the MC jump from the balcony of the 19th floor taking the jealous husband with him in his downfall.

Sigh... and that's the end of the story, thank you for reading the novel.

Naaah, I got you, that's just the first chapter.

OK seriously, this is a novel about an MC who "failed" his life, died, is given another chance and try to do better this time. "God's Miracle" is a game that will be heavily monetized, our MC with his memories of a time traveller (and my gosh, that guys has amazingly precise memories) will take advantage of that to turn the wrong into right. Nothing new here but I didn't mind.

What pissed me off the most was how unrealistic it was even for a novel with this setup.

The characters are extremely one dimensional, and it rapidly starts to become annoying because there's no surprise it's the same thing over and over again : you know that the childhood friend and the second tank will make perverted comments, you know that the little girl will get angry or whine, you know that the thief girl will not say anything, you know that the priest will hit on our MC and you also know that the MC will trash talk each of them. And then... they will all merrily laugh (except the thief girl, remember she never say anything). Yes you read it right.

Even if they were the best players in the universe I still wouldn't want to play with them. The sad part here is that they aren't even that good (except our dear MC and the thief girl) DPS with tunnel vision that ignore fight mechanics and Healer that have zero fight awareness are nothing but subpar players. But thanks to the magic of novel they will get First Clear Achievements.

Ah ! First Clear Achievement. It's pretty straightforward, if you're the first to clear a dungeon, you're rewarded with a skill point and everyone in the server is notified of your feat. As you can guess our MC will earn some lots of them. So the entire chinese server knows that our MC has godly skills, despite of that he still has trouble to find decent players to complete his group. Facepalm.

In the end our dear MC decide that better be alone than in bad company, which is true, but you know why staying alone when you can thanks to your fame easily be "normally" accompanied ? (And I'm 100% sure that this normal company would be better than some of his current party.) Meanwhile the elite guilds are left in the dust with their elite groups composed of elite players, when our MC destroy the content of the game with his half-group.

Come on ! How balance can this game be ? This, and the fact that he keeps killing bosses way higher than his level... sigh. (OK, I can believe that some of his feats are possible because he kinda exploit bug, or exploit unintended mechanics I should say, but that's a minority.)

The c212 Ragequit incident :


So in this and the previous chapter they fight the last boss of a 20 player Raid in "Hardcore Mode" with the First Clear Achievement on the line. Yes, Hardcore.

Note that some of the members of his group already killed the boss in other modes.

Here is the strat : things will happen but it doesn't matter because there's ONLY ONE dangerous ability. The boss boss will teleport 4 players and will link them with a fire chain that will deal damage. The only way to remove it is to go away from one another.

OK so, 4 people will always make a squarish form, it doesn't take a genius to guess in which direction you need to go to run away from the 3 others. Yet our MC lost 12 of his group members (maybe 16 but we don't know the fate of the last 4 people teleported) because of an ability as simple as this one. Yet again, our MC still manage to have the First Clear Achievement, even with assisted team mates like that.

H A R D C O R E _ M O D E.

I can't even imagine how bad all the other players of the server are.

This was a little too much for me.


In my opinion, the IRL part are even worse than the rest of the novel because of how unrealistic it seems to me. I won't talk about all the different events, maybe Chinese daily interactions are like that, but I can't believe how stupid and petty the people of the novel are.

It's sad, and it was said in other reviews but if you played WoW (especially if you played Warrior and Priest like I did) you'll notice that most of the skills are taken from it.

Another little thing that made me smile is how amazed people are when they see the MC dodge the attacks of the monsters. "God's Miracle" is an Action MMORPG, my first one was Tera in 2012 it took me two enemies to figure out that in this kind of game you can dodge everything. The story takes place in 2039 people should have even more experience than us, and even in a classic MMORPG you don't facetank everything.

(And yes, I know the story is from 2011.) <<less

Currently giving it a high rating. The start of the game is VERY similar to Shura's wrath. But that's a bad thing, in fact I like it and I think it is well done. My only hope is that the progression of the story will not be like Shura's wrath which I thought became crap.

Currently on chapter 6, I recommend giving this novel a chance as it is quick to like/dislike and thus won't waste much time.

Now on chapter 28. Its stayed decent and I also noticed that... more>> it seems like a mix of Shura's wrath and Master hunter K. I won't say its a copy as I don't know when each of them was released but I'm downgrading the rating to a 4 as I feel that this isn't a perfect novel, just a good one. I must admit I liked master hunter K more than this.

Edit: chapter 48. Putting rating down to 3. Why? Because 'The cold policewoman took her time to think and then said'I'll give you a chance. If you could defeat me I'l let you go! Otherwise you'll follow me to the police station and confess your crime!" - The utter f***. This is in "real life" where a scammer tries the scam the MC. It fails and the MC beats him and his hooligans up, earning applause and respect from passersbys. Policewoman comes to arrest him for public fighting when he says it was self defense. Audience also tells her it was and then she says this despite knowing he had done nothing wrong.

There is so many things wrong with that quote from her that I just had to put down the rating. It feels so forced to further the plot/ or if it isn't to it seems so useless.

Final edit: chapter 49. I'm dropping it. Very generic story, you average chinese gaming humour

(not insulting or funny at all) but worst of all it seems to be dropping in quality. The plot is getting more boring and etc.

Go ahead and read it if you want but I cannot stomach something this average when there are other much better stories to read.

I don't understand the harsh reviews. I find this novel fun to read and the MC is intelligent. Not only did he go back into the past, but he makes decisions based on the fact that he's aware that if he changes things too much or does things unproperly, the future won't be the same and the stuff he knows would be essentially useless so he's both intelligent and careful.

I also like his personality, and find him to be a fun character. I think the writing is also pretty... more>> good.

This is almost completely different from TKA so I don't understand the comparison...

All you need to know is that if you're on the fence, then this is definitely worth reading. I almost didn't read it, but decided to and am glad I did. I am finding this very enjoyable, and the quality has in fact gone up rather than down, so I recommend people try it and stick around for the ride.

Edit: c 140 ish

Yeah, this got worse. Still isn't *that* bad though. But would bump my review to 3. 5 stars. <<less

The thing I always anticipated from this novel is the items and skill Mc's got.

The story of this novel is predictable : get stronger, more items, more powerful skill, slap the enemy's face. Well of course there is an unexpected events like


Mc's decided not to pursue his previous lover, his biggest (previous life) enemy dead by his other enemy, or the ending (for me, I expect MC will conquer China or something like that)


For his harem, the most normal encounter is his first lover.


if I recall correctly there are 5, and no underage girl in his harem like some comment accused. And yes, his previous lover is not included


Story got flat in the middle near end. And the authors apologize because of the op'ness of MC and his plot armor in ending.

About the similarities of this novel with avatars king, I think there is no problem with it.

Overall I think this is a decent read, I don't feel any regret for completing this series.

Quickly forming harem filled with all the annoying characters you can find. All of the characters are shameless and not in the funny way.

Also wastes chapters in ALL levels of difficulty in dungeon runs so the MC keeps on fighting the same bosses over and over again.

The party members are all annoying, I wonder why the MC puts up with them.

Have no complaints about the novel. Its a more than okay restart game type setting. Certainly not the best, but I'm mature enough not to complain about originality or top tier writing when the author certainly wasn't aiming for it. At least its a skillful OP character rather than a dozens of OP equips or special classes found one after the other.

One reviewer compared it to King's Avatar, but they are nothing alike. Especially since this is vr game, MC not a top tier pro with three titles, no... more>> special weapon, no super overlooked class, this is a restart, MC trying to start not just a team but a big business as well, and the game is more complex except battle mechanics... why are we comparing this to King's Avatar again? Anyways, only thing similar I see is that they go over actual game dungeons, and this is more realistic than King's Avatar. <<less

Grammar: 3/5
Writing: 2. 7/5
Story: 2. 4/5

The grammar is fairly standard with instances of awkward wording/phrasing, misspelling, and incorrect word choice. The writing style of the author is just slightly above average, but not really good enough to keep a constant flow going. The story itself is fairly standard without much innovation thus far, taking heavy influence from common MMO's such as World of Warcraft and others (though it feels most dependent on WoW).

Overall, I am enjoying this series.

So first 2-3 chapters suck. Then get pretty good for about next 11 chapters then next 22 chapters are okay. Then whenever a new party member is gained. Add a layer of cliche sh*t on to your impression of this book. But before I talk about that I say my opinion on the other points in this novel.

Plot: genric plot C. Could not get married to loved one because not enough power to cancel her arranged marrige.

You will quickly forget about her. Just like everybody else. Because of... more>> her complete lack of influence over everything. I stoped reading about chapter 60 somthing and her name might of been brought up twice.

So to some up the plot. Shows up for 5 min then is completely forgotten about till the author rereads his notes and remembers.

Setting: genric game setting. With sh**ty game mechanics.

Characters: the worse part about the novel by far. All of the side charachters but 1 are so over the top annoying, genric, a*ses. They are completely unfunny and unenjoyable.

You have the fat pervert that can't shut up. Even in the middle of a boss fight. Which on numress times almost gets everone else killed, because they don't just ignore him they stop and have a conversation in the middle of the fight. Leaving the MC to fend for himself. He blows off the MC a number of times when the MC is just trying to help him and instead just ignores him to chase after some women. Moving on because I am getting pissed just remembering all the stuff that he has done.

Next is the tsundre loil. Who is nothing but a money Gruber, who acts like a 7 year old that does nothing but annoy you while insulting everybody.

The next character who I think is named snow? Is the healer in the party. She does nothing but screw over the MC and insult and make fun of the party. To the point that no one would ever like her let alone party with her. If some one makes her made. She won't heal them. She stole a few hundred gold from the MC, he just shrugged it off. She thinks that everybody is in love with her. When no body cares about her.

The last member of the part is the type of guy the even tho you know he is with fighting helping and fighting every enemy and boss with you. You for some reason still forget about him till its time to split loot. You then remember him and have feel half bad about forgetting him and half pitty him. So you give him the best loot.

I would say something about the MC but after chapter 40. He becomes nothing but a tool to level up and keep the other party members from dieing and help them get more OP

So that is what I think. Alot of theproblem I find in this story stems from. The fact that it does not translate well to a westren audience. Unlike most cliche Chinese novels where I understand the reason for the cliche and why it tured our like that. This story makes no sense. I just don't understand why it was done that way or the reason.

Hahaha! What can I say... it's grinding hell.

When battle scene starts you can just scroll down until the battle ends and you'll still miss nothing.

Plot is stagnant, it's like playing a game, worse, you're watching someone else playing MMORPG.

The story starts good with possible story lines and characters but as soon as he enters the game all you find is him exploiting that bug, kill that rare boss, get that high grade equipment which from my point of view, irrelevant in the story. It's not like you'll... more>> remember them anyway. There's no character development either. What's worse the main heroine, which drives the MC to play the game doesn't appear and all I know is her name which i've soon forgotten.

Even with 100+ chapters, even if you skip all the battle scene, which, you wouldn't miss, the story is as good as another's novel 10+ chapters since all you can see is him playing and no actual storytelling. <<less

There's nothing much to say with only 10 chapters but the reason for the second chance is pretty much lackluster and have been used countless times in other novels.

How should I say it? The first 10 chapters feels like every novel that involves second chance, vrmmorpg, reincarnating years before the start of the game, etc. The only thing refreshing is the class of the MC which is a Warrior - Guardian (as the title implies).

If you're still not sickes of VR pro gamer reincarnated years before the start... more>> of a game because of betrayal or being too weak then you will like this one.

As for me. ☕️☕️☕️

MMORPG - Rebirth of the Legendary Guardian can be considered one of the newest addition in the world of translated Virtual Reality novels, yet a rather old one on its homeland scene. It's been written in 2011 and considering it only has 856 chapters, it is by no means so long that it would take years for it to be completely translated. With a rather simple description, the story itself seems to not bother itself too much with the premise, jumping straight into the fray of grinding, PVP, PVE, dungeons,... more>> guilds and so on. A rather interesting aspect of this story is the importance it gives to the social aspect rather than the recently trend of creating a one man army out of the protagonist. But, is this a good thing? Hard to say.

The story itself starts as the description stated, a well versed player lost everything he had in the game and even his girl was stolen. With a desperate effort to keep the hands of his nemesis off his former lover, he commits a double suicide with him after being harassed by the said nemesis. His story of course is not going to end here as he suddenly wakes up at the exact moment the virtual reality game is about to be launched. (I'd gladly state that these freaking time jumps happen with an annoying precision, yet, considering the last actions of the protagonist are not cringe worthy, I happened to feel happy seeing his chance to restart everything). He starts the game from 0 with quite a lot of knowledge about the beginning of the game, with its secret missions an so on. This gives him an edge over the rest of the players and he moves quite fast on the ladder. The game system is awesome and also quite well explained for a novel, which becomes a good addition considering we are presented with fights that actually have some logic behind them. The NPCs do not become a drag as they are actually portrayed only as in game characters that only resemble humans. They are not given that much importance, which in turn lets the story flow faster. As you may have already guessed, the protagonist becomes extremely OP, and his money making quest is moving smoothly and actually quite interestingly. Then comes the problems which can be considered this story's Achille heel. As this novels actually tries to come closer to reality, we have to deal with dungeons that requires parties of 5 or more players. Because the premise of this novel requires the protagonist to make a lot of money he also becomes a guild leader. This is a clear sign that the protagonist will rarely do anything alone, and this becomes the liability of this story sadly instead of its strong point. If the author had made a better choice, this story would have deserved at least an overall of 4. 1 stars. But well, here we go with the characters.

We have the old friend of the protagonist, the perverted fatty that always makes witty jokes about whores, about how much he wants to get laid with some beautiful lady while also taking pride in his fatness. He is of course attached to the protagonist as an accessory. With absolutely no real skills, thanks to the protagonist he becomes one of the top players in the beginning. He takes so much pride in the fact he is carried like a baby, that he is actually moving left and right trying to get some pu**y instead of staying as a loyal dog. He slowly becomes a liability as his mistakes during boss fights increases, which in turn drags the protagonist down. Most of the boss fights, raids, pvp fights and so on are full of his witty comments that require the IQ of a retarded gorilla to be understood. After this one, a former top player is coincidentally found by the protagonist at the beginning of the game. He helps him as in the future this player will obtain a strong support pet which will dominate the entire server. Even though he is mostly silent, this character is the only one that is not freaking annoying. Then we obtain a pair of female cousins. Now if the fatty was annoying, these girls are the f**king upgrade. The younger one is always fighting with her cousin, complaining about her huge boobs and sh*t like this while calling the protagonist that helps her rise from a crappy 2 cent player to one of the top players, 'noob tank'. This is by no means funny. She is constantly harassing the protagonist til the point I got mad. Her cousin is at first a little dumb and lazy but with a good set of skills as healer. Even so, the author decides to make her a 'succubus' later on, not in the proper sense of the word of course. She always edges the protagonist on towards some woman or makes some s*xual jokes with him. The next players is a genius at fighting, both IRL and IG, and becomes quite close to the protagonist because of course, she has some huge secret background in the real world. She is also mostly silent and just picks fights with the protagonist from time to time (real fights). Lastly, as the fatty was soon to get dropped, the author decided to add another annoying pervert together with a woman that may or may not be a strong player in the future. Now imagine this, a perfectly described boss fight, with danger at every step that requires a good set of skills and a lot of planning, filled with tons and tons of unnecessary comments and bickering from almost all the side characters. All the time two of them makes s*xual jokes about anything, one of them insults the protagonist one or two times per paragraph, another one is trying to entice him while also starting a fight with either the one that insult the protagonist or the two morons that would f**k even a centaur. The last ones are silent as a graveyard. I can only see them as noise interference. The rest of the players from other guild are somewhat alright, the enemies are proud and foolish while the allies are of course, women. More exactly a guild formed only with women.

The novels itself is screwed by the awful side characters, which in turn make the protagonist seem retarded as he actually accepts all of the insults or stupid jokes.

The story is still enjoyable, yet I found myself skipping more and more of the fights only caring about the loot or the quests the protagonist is doing by himself. Beside these ones, the real life of the protagonist is generally left aside, only to be filled with some huge cliche once it is finally presented slightly.

As VR novel, this story does not sucks. It is actually quite good, an overall 4 stars. If we add the side characters, we get an overall of 2 stars. Adding the possibility of actually cleansing his party at least in the future obtaining a serious and well balanced team that prioritizes strategy and a calm mindset, I will give this novel an overall of 3 stars.

In conclusion, I'd actually recommend everyone to do what the hell they want. It's your own time that may or may not be wasted.

hmm, you could say some kind of rip off of Shura warth, Virtual worlds' series or some other VRMMO genre novels.

Luck is became a 'X Factor' here, a huge one to the boot. with his highest 'luck' stat he could overcome almost every boss available in the game, yet he still need his lil sis-in-law 'lucky touch' to get a better equipments', tho some of em got robbed by the girl as matter of fact he must pamper is sis-in-law as much as her sister (cousin).

his power in... more>> the game basicly a ripoff of shura warth, something to do with God of War.

his relationship between each chara also 'quite' good. he's actually quite pampering his guild mates, giving em best equipments and also stock shares 5% of his sales of those unneeded equipments.

in love relationship, he's quite worry about the jealousy between his 'official GF' and his 'true' GF. those whose secretly have crush on him also became target of em. yet they're all (mainly those GFs) OK with 3P, 4P est...

he actually never meet with the woman that cause him to suide, but the man who forcing the way was got beaten black and blue. <<less

It was alright for the first... idk 30 - 40 chapters to fill my generic vrmmo novel need while I wait for chapters but jeeze does it just keep going downhill.

A lot of cringe comedy and really poor development for the characters. There's been no reference back to the reason for the MC caring about being the best other than he just wants to. Lots of cringey boring dialog too, fatty is a pervert for the thousandth time, girl gets called flat chested over and over, etc etc.

It's... more>> like someone did a really bad job of trying to rewrite rebirth of the thief who roamed the world. Go read that or overlord if you want a decent vrmmo novel. <<less

Generic, if you are someone who have read gaming novels. Closest comparison is Reign of the Hunters, another title whose internal game is heavily influenced by World of Warcraft, except that the MC in this one is male. The MC doesn't go out all of his way to be a loner like in Emperor of Solo Play.

It's another do-over story, a guy gets transported back to the past and returns to what he knows best: gaming. At least the author had the decency to mention that the MC does... more>> not have the business acumen to take advantage of his future knowledge in the real world.

The story flows very directly and like other novels in the genre the emphasis is on the game and it far outweighs scenes in the real world. Basically you'll be told that this game is a global phenomenon and to be great in the game can have real life implications.

The first 13 translated chapters does not offer anything new as yet and there is nothing that make it a must-read. But of worthy mention is the extra footnotes describing the gaming mechanics to those who are unfamiliar with MMORPGs and thus make it a gentle introduction to the genre for the uninitiated.
