    Okay, I forgot about the single rider thing could be expressed that way.
    But for the 当, if it is suppose to mean versus or in literal meaning block or wards off it should be 挡.
    Although pronounced the same, the have a little difference in meaning, that's the thing about chinese.
    And as I read on the original WN version, the author clearly used 当 (Dāng) instead of 挡 (Dǎng).
    Or are you suggesting that the author just doesn't care to use the correct character at all?

    No worries about it. You are still human so its normal to commit mistakes.

    As for Ciel not releasing any chapters. That's normal because I think she's sick.

    Just seat back and relax while waiting for the new chapter of ZL. Why not read other web novels instead :)

    Don't know if this was discussed before or not, but after reading more than 300 chapter (from the beginning) haven't reach the latest chapter yet.
    There are a lot of times when I feel the day count of the story doesn't match.
    Like once they said they would do something in 20 days, but around 15 or 20 chapter later, after they had some event went by, they said they would do it in exactly 29 days.
    *trying not to make spoiler* is it just me? is it the translator's fault? or did the author actually make a mistake like that?

    For me, I also noticed this on a lot of novels. Maybe this is a job of the translators or the editors to fix.

    But just ignore it because if they say 20 days, it doesnt really mean its after 15-20 chapters because there are some that would only take 1-2 chapters. They call it Time Skip.

    So yeah, I red some of those on other novels and maybe because the author has this complicated writing that's not easy to understand. Specially if its from a language thats so hard to understand or has different characters.

    There's a subtle difference between the two.
    挡/'to block' is passive action while 当/'to match against' is aggressive.

    To use 挡 implies he can just defend himself against an army.
    Using 当 would suggest he can fight one by himself.

    '一骑当千' is an offensive ability, so the author's correct in using the more proactive 当.

    Another question, hopefully doesn't count as spoiler discussion.
    I've read until chapter 531, and I remember very clearly LXY's agreement with the game company is that the weapon he have can be evolved twice.
    So far until 531, it has only evolved once.
    But the translation so far until chapter 733 on GT, has his equipment evolved again? *not asking what it evolved to and what difference it make, but just have it evolved or not.

    It would still evolve because IIRC, it was first valkyrie then it got evolve in Divine Tier, then it evolve into Demon Harvest


    just correct me if I am wrong though

    I haven't read that far yet.
    But since you know it would evolve the second time to Demon Harvest, means that it have evolved the 2nd time by chapter 733?

    Back with more question.
    Chapter 560. description of skill "Frosty Armor" - You cannot learn this skill with the skill [Dou Qi Wall], but its effects can be added with the effects of [Wall of Dou Qi]
    Does this mean that XYZZ's Dou Qi Wall skill will be removed? or does it only mean that this 2 skill can't be learned at the same advancement stage?
    Since he learned the DQW on 4th advancement and FA on 5th.


    Edit : Seems like this is the problem with translation and VERY similar naming for skills.

    Normal/Standard Class Skill :
    4th advancement Dou Qi Armor
    5th advancement Dou Qi Wall

    XYZZ Dragon City Night Watch + Yan Wei Dragon Knight Class Skill :
    4th advancement Wall of Dou Qi
    5th advancement Frosty Armor

    Notice the similarity in the name for normal 5th advancement and XYZZ's 4th advancement.
    The naming is TOO MUCH alike. I got confused with that almost equal naming.
