I really dig a good intelligent crafter. The main character is confident and clever, progressing through his professions with good honest hard work.

Interested to see where this story goes.

5 for now and 'coz of snowlily. Nothing too groundbreaking but the class or skillset is quite unique and gives the story a great potential.

The start to what I hope will be a massive story.

The story to this point is both intreging and we'll thought out, with the MC having a very distinct personality and goals. I enjoy the fact that the MC doesn't always do the obvious (to the reader) but has his own personality and preference on how to do things. 

I also enjoy the fact that when he can, he chooses to put in his own effort and time to complete a task instead of spamming his ability, but is still willing to use his ability when he needs to.

It's just a long series without any feeling of accomplishment. The story doesn't reward you for reading 1k+ pages with some sort of achievment or pleasure.

Example, mc crafts day in day out but nothing ever happens with what he crafts. He doesn't even sell them.

And choices are forced upon the mc, which i don't like.

Doth mine eyes deceive me? A crafting story that actually uses proper smithing terminology like tang? I find this story a delightful basket of surprises. Near perfect spelling and grammar, a great crafting beginning filled with real-life examples of actual crafting (The smithing in particular), surprises galore that keep the reader on their toes and wonderful building of backstory for the characters. 

So, where to start? 

I suppose the grammar and spelling first since that's the easiest. It's nearly flawless. I can't remember reading a single mistake off the top of my head, although I may find some if I were to reread it looking for them. Normally a lot of stories on this site have occasional hiccups in their word choice or spelling that really jolt a person out of their immersion in the story. I have yet to be jolted out of my immersion which attests to the writer's skill in this regard. 

Style, I'm not too sure how to rank style on this website, but fantasy lovers and litrpg lovers alike can enjoy this book. 

The story, like I said. A basketful of surprises. And that's what I like the most about this novel. It surprises you. I read a lot of stuff online, and after a while, you begin to notice that they all follow trends and become predictable. And eventually, predictableness leads to boredom. I've dropped several novels before in the past due to them becoming far too predictable. I don't think I will ever have that problem with this novel.

Also, to those complaining about certain plot points that have come up recently about the character not being able to choose stuff, that's life. We can't always choose what hand we're dealt, and I like the realism of that in this story. 

Characters, really well done. The interactions between the characters feel realistic and lifelike. The story and the characters are intertwined a lot in scoring in my opinion. A great story is normally determined by well fleshed out characters. And this succeeds. It also keeps you on your toes with tantalising hints about certain characters pasts. Masterfully done. I look forward to discovering more about the characters as the plot progresses further.  

In conclusion, this novel is really fantastic, and I highly recommend it. Expect to be surprised.

Excellent Crafting VR Story so Far!

Reviewed at: Vol. 6 - Captivity - Chapter 3

I'm loving the story so far!

It has great potential to balance between crafting, fighting, magic, and exploring/adventuring in the game world!

Too many crafting stories have MC's in a static location and situation without a lot of adventures or battles but the plot progression is having a great balance between them all and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Keep up the good work!

So, i managed to gobble it up in two days (nights...thanks for the lack of sleep, dearest author!) and i have to say this some entertaining piece of work!

The style is excelent for my taste! No shit-talks, the characters are loveable or hateable, and the worldbuilding is excelent in my opinion. One little addition to the past of our MC's "legendary" background would have made him more of a serious character, but i think the past reveal will come eventually when he meets his old friends.

Then again, i think this is my first "serious" review in more than 2 years of reading on this site, so take my words as a regular and normal fantasy loving guy's personal opinion. Thank you dear author for this entertaining novel, and i hope you will continue this story because i, and i bet, a tons of other people like your story! Sorry for my poor grammar!

As of vol.4 chap.1, A more than welcome, comfortable read with a pace that isn't rushing too much and takes time for things to unfold. Like how I titled the review, it feels like I am writing a pre-publishing manuscript draft that has already been checked and rechecked but still has a little bit of fat to trim of before getting turned into a book.

It may not be for some, but I do like the style and pace it has and considering the VRMMO base. The story still strongly stands on its own from the multitude with the way it is written in.

There may be a spot error here and there with the grammar but nothing that breaks the thread of the story. The characters are all well and amusing personalities that make up a nice and cohesive flow of the plot.

A bit of want though is the lack or need of more imagery for some things and scense. Thanks good sir for the interesting tale and keep up the wonderful work.

Enjoying the story, probably because I tend to be a bit of a crafter myself when playing games. 

Couple things bugging me though - first, not a fan of adding in 'guns', though it seems somewhat reasonable considering the slight steam punk arc of magitech.  The creation of the welder seems a bit forced though, and even with his perks, the speed of learning seems a bit high though, especially for the tradeskills he isn't a fan of.  Looking forward to him doing something besides crafting though!
