We had the same msg on LMS wikia.
Don't know if that the real deal or some promotion shit. I did NOT check.

Anyway, here at least, u will - at least - find
Vol48 Raw
& for the english readers, vol48 chapters 1-6 translated by Rainbowturtle. The last 2 chapters should come out in the coming days.

Anyway, if someone can confirm
1/ that vol49 is OUT
2/ give a link toward the raw
That would be very helpful.
I would add the post on the LMS wikia.
Thanks a lot.


Ps - if u want to chat directly, i'm on discord, on the wuxiaworld channel, on a regular basis... codename : Phil1403  :hi:

Vol 50-55 is about right to end the Novel
After becoming Master sculptor there is not much left to do.
and all that is left is Weed vs Bardray ,North vs Hermes to conquer the continent.

I agree about the fact that the author said it would end there. But to say that there is not much left to do, i disagree.

1 -
There is to take over the rest of the continent to become the true emperor.
How do you want to implement the spirit of the North on the Continent ?

2 -
Having become master class does NOT mean that ur gaming has ended or that u are the end of ur character evolution. For example, Weed, during the warring age, did become a master class and an Emperor toward level 700+ and he is still was very weak compared to the dragon (who himself was already largely weakened by Embinyu).

Same comment with the Embinyu avatar.

3 -
There is a second continent on the map.
The map is to be found on the author's blog.

There is a clue with the wasteland of the lost, which is only a border between both Continent (volume 38 chapter1). Again, you can read the clues around the story of Hestiger.

 4 -
To go even further, the author could consider the option of
- starting a dual class character, with a new class (a classic of traditional RPG).
- a special event challenging the Emperor and the central continent (another classic of online gaming or story telling).
- a new addition, with a simple forced quest on a gamer or a gate opening that would throw Weed in a new world/other dimension (future or foreign world).
Like he already did with the past dimension. The author did it before with the vampire subworld or with another dimension ( Dawn traveler ) This could happen again with the downfall of the wasteland of the lost (a barrier) or a gate opening toward a second world. In short, unifying the Continent, could be only a trigger point for something else, or something bigger, with the Emperor having to protect his world :whoosh:

So, in the end, i guess that it is all about the author motivation to dream about a world and tell us an interesting story, while being at it.

Just to confirm, then the ultimate skill of sculpture, which has been mensionada from the beginning, that the emperor giehar menciounou never have been able to dominate temporal sculpture?
As the mission is to acquire skill?

The ultimate sculpting skill is time sculpting.
For the description:

A mixed up list
no time sculpting is not a skill you get after becoming a master.
every job class in the game has a fixed number of skills that can be acquired after traveling around and meeting the different NPC masters. for eg. sculptor class has
1. moonlight sculpting
2. give life to sculptor
3. nature sculpting
4. elemental sculpting
5. sculpture transformation
other than these there are: sculpture destruction and sculpture summon
also while doing sculptor master quest one can get some of these skills.

READER BE CAREFUL, the next text focus on translation and description issue related to LMS and its use of the word skill.
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

When you try to write it down on the wiki, that's where u truly want to :stabby:

Missing special skill hidden within the continent? Hasn't Weed already gotten that one? Last Secret Sculpting Skill Quest.
Indeed, he just did with the end of the warring age quest. (after becoming master class, emperor and killing Ausollet, the most powerful dragon on the Continent). But he did it with another alter ego character: Nodule.

Anyone know if vol 48 will be the last? I remember having a discussion with someone about it months ago. A long time ago the author said the story wouldn't go past 50 volumes. And then around the time vol 47 came out I was told the the author said volume 48 would be the last.

Check the wiki news.
Blog section.
There is a link toward The author's blog (in Korean) where the author says he is planning to go up to vol50.

The Imoogi was also a dragon. Not a true dragon, but a dragon. Regarding true dragons, I don't think anyone other than Weed has killed one. The green dragon the Geomchis went after was a true dragon if I'm not mistaken.

Well, after double check, Hermes did NOT kill a dragon but a bone dragon.
It's a mistake of the first translator. Proof check made by Rainbow Turtle.

Also the first TRUE real dragon was killed by Weed in the warring age.
And what a dragon, the most powerful one !
This was done with the help of his allies and Embinyu first church.

For more information,_black_dragon

After there was a gamer (short mention) but it was never mentionned how old nor how big or powerful the dragon was.
So Hermes is NOT even second on that topic.

@About job advancement
You have the regular job advancement, and then you have the master class, which is NOT related to job, but to skill mastery.
To claim successfully your master class, sure, you have to level your advance skill to 100% (like fabio was trying to do). BUT, also, you need to fulfill the quest path (12 to 20 linked quest).
To rephrase it, the master class means you are at the peak of your skill. The only thing you can expect after that, is to claim and collect the missing special skill hidden within the continent.

In the case of Weed, he can learn other craft related skill and raised them up to mastery level. But that does NOT mean that he is all of those class; just that he was capable of learning a limited version of it.

For more information
(this section need to be improved, comment welcome beneath the page)

- The first to kill a dragon was the hermes guild.
This info was released when Weed faced Bardray for the first time (and was killed by him).
- The geomchi, noob level, also tried to kill a green dragon, but they failed utterly
- Weed, level over 400, the first time he met a nasty old dragon was scared to death.

For more info about dragons, check the LMS wiki.

Well, regarding translation issue, the wikia is also doing some cleaning/clarification job, just by listing
- various translation used
- various source in the novel
- comparing them
and trying to make sense of a coherent way for label: title, skill, etc

For example, that already gives some really interesting results on
Master swordmen list
You realize that there are you only have 2 dual class NPC, which are sculptor and swordmaster.
If you get that, then you realize that
- Weed is fated to be the third one
- he already got special master skill than everyone else
- he already has better real sword skill than bard Ray

Same for the under lying game structure, it's start to appears more and more

So I'm sure, at some point, it will trigger some clean up action of the former translations...
Because this just need 2-3 people to work on it, once the major translations issues are solved.

ps -
With the new MTL group abruptly intruding on Endling territory, we may have lost a great translator.
Crossing finger that it does NOT happen.

You can find it online, here for example

There was a code between scanlators (means scan + translator...) but since the big site came up, scanlation team are no longer center of the game. Last team to make a stand was the team of Ipitydafoo, on breakers. Response: another Fast trad team took over the translation, instead of supporting the team request, which was to respect a 24 or 48 hours delay before uploading their work. In other words, another team used the opportunity to steal the project (mangacow was its name). Consequence : their forum went empty and later on they got tired of it. They still finished the translation, but we lost a team that was doing a great job for over 5 years on the breakers ( even reworking on their translation when volume were coming out ).

Sometimes, Kids can be so stupid/selfish...

Agree with you. The LMS machine translation did more wrong than good.

First i found it useful, because i was adding content on Wikia; so i did NOT care much about reading, I just went to the facts, which was fine. End even shared their link... so i had no afterthough.
And then I waited for End HQ translation. 
But what's happening right now is just NOT cool. Its hard enough to get a good translater... I hope End will get his mindset straight and ask them to go play somewhere else and get back to work.

Those kids also really did brought more trouble than help.

@ About RR translation,
Again i agree.

Sorry to said it, but there are part which are just truly ugly. Latest example v9c3. I can't even make sense of the description of the "monsters" in the death valley... Same goes with the undead description or the fighter class (and subclass) description. Etc... And i could go, on and on, with this kind of example

In fact as soon, as you search specific information, you realize how doubtful translation can be sometime.  :huh:

The reason for that is simple. People just feed some basic translation name in, without any second thought nor lexicon. Then someone else comes and does exactly the same. After 3 or 4 translater on a same class or monster, if you try to gather information, it doesn't make sense anymore, especially with LMS where the author can spread information on a specific class or monster over 20 volumes...

Anyway, it's still fun to search and collect those data. But i just can't insist enough on how priceless it is to have a good translation team which seriously does the job on a regular basis.

Ps - Input on the LMS wikia in the comment section is welcomed.

There is daum dictionary you can use for reference as well. It's more helpful than Google translate.

chap 18 is out

what happened to mind hand skill? it had a lot potential but i think author gave up on it.

Well, he was used in the forbidden zone of the north (volcanic zone), against the chaos warrior leader with the flaming sword.
Weed was in the lich form and it helped him avoiding being hit
it's the last time i remember seeing it.
keep you up if i see it again within the volume 23-25

volume 24 chap 11 :whoosh:

so, you would rather like sh0tty character designs (like other adaptations) and sh0tty dialogs for 13 years old kids?? instead of what this artist delivers?? i prefer this one personally...

glad that you like it.
good for you. ;-)

Ps - sorry, to me, that's exactly how the LMS manga looks like : "like a sh0tty character designs... for 13 years old". There is nothing much about weed's difficult/twisted childhood, or the violence both chidren (weed and Seoyoun) experimented for example.

In fact, i would have prefer a seinem version of LMS, less faithful to the storyline, more based on unfolding the graphic vision of the raw facts of the character's actual life, and insisting more on the contrast between both life (real life and royal road) and the blurring effect later on, and how his life in the game reveals weed's real/actual potential (and challenge him at the same time).

Ps if people want to help with a time line on LMS, or if you plan to re read LMS, please PM me. thanks

otherwise, regarding the manga, i disagree with you. In fact, i'm not specialy impress by the manga adaptation. for example: a barbarian with high heel, is kind of weird. same goes with his one closed eyes all the time. etc... in the end, he is cuting down too much. it's almost like a summary of the light novel.

well, he started writing in 2005 or 2006 and the first volume came out in 2007.
not bad. ;-)

ps - LMS, chap 16 came out.
otherwise Seoyoun, depicted as a barbarian AND with high heel... somewhere, somehow, i seriously doubt it. LOL
anyway, the manga moves forward and it moves fast.

i updated the previous post, but not sure if i answered your question.

LMS is truly a "Jack all trade" class, which can basically use/switch into many forms. 

In any case, the imperial formless skill technique can evolve, for example "triple", the first form, can win more hits with time.
but it's hard to say if it's a leveling class. To me, it's related to mana consumption. So the skill is very powerful and flashy, but short lived (max 1 mn); more like a spell than a sword technique.
Therefore my guess : it's NOT a leveling class, but it's connected to a leveling class (sword technique), which synergize with the special technique to make it even more powerful.

By the way, the impact of a sword technique is also connected to stats (check the link between agility and bow skill in volume 24). So in the end, i guess, you can consider that this mana technique is just like a special type of buff.

In fact, during a fight, Royal Road takes everything into account : level of sword skill + strengh + sword technique + other stats or skills + other buff (like special weapon or spell...). It even take into account the real life experience of the player. And all this influence directly, not only the damage, but also if a hit becomes critical or the numbers of hits you can land during use or even how long he can use it. It's always the same type of complex process, where the game takes everything he can into account.

His basic LMS swords skills - volume 1 - chapter 8
It's imperial formless sword technique (page 124) "with 5 movements, 1 breathing and 1 footstep technique"
it's an A level sword technique inherited from the (first) Emperor Geilhar Von Arpen.
It's also called the flawless Sword Technique (ST)

You have more information in volume 2 - chapter 1 (page 6), name, mana consumption and description, which are

Seven celestial Step (100) : dodge an ennemy attack (for 1mn only)
Triple (300) : 3 or more hits (depending on sword skill level ?) :stabby:
Backstab (400) : move behind the ennemy
Power break (600) : 5 attacks (to destroy the ennemy weapon ?)
Sword dance (1000) : hit on the ennemy weak spot
Sword kaiser (2000 or HP) : powerful hit on a single point

Depending on the level of the user, some of those technique could evolve (for example: triple can gain more hits). Those skills combine with others LMS skills

i will reread weed saga... if you have any question, fact you want me to check, please leave your question here, or send me an email. If i see the answer, i'll share it with you ;-)
Damn you, hardcore fans!
No big deal. It's just the second reading... :evil-thought: and the first one was way too fast. :whoosh:

By the way, chapter 3, volume 1, chapter 3. Weed got a A level quest to meet Zahab (which is said he could normally reach when he hits the level 400... which he does volume 24, chapter 7) which is still has to reach at volume 24, chapter 7. Does someone knows when he will reach it ? I was told it was the upcoming quest (volume 25). Is this correct ?
