The mazes aren't too hard, they are just long, and if you have the XP version, they crashes the program. BTW what gods are you talking about chibi? The dragon fishes before you fight bai yue combined with the sea monster?
Wow, is this nostalgic or what.

Oh no..there's GODS (literally) that you may obtain..kinda like summons. In a super fat maze near the end, if you can find the secret location, you can have the fire, wind, water, thunder, and ground gods. If you train Ling Er enough, she also can summon the "warrior" god. They're very powerful

OH I know that place, that's where you get your 36 worms for Yueru. The problem I encountered with that part is that once I get into the maze, I don't know how to get back out. I used the Guiding Bee and it doesn't work.

You're using the Guiding Bees while outside of battle, right?

The drama has been criticized severely in China, because most XianJian fans think the characters in the drama are quite different from those in the game. And the drama simply did not reach their expectations.
I don't like the drama either.

I think the drama was okay by itself. By that I mean it would definitely be a great drama to a person who has never played the game.
When I watched the drama, I was surprised at how much they twisted the storyline. In the end though, I thought it was still pretty good and didn't regret watching it.

I can't even stand the drama, the dialogue, attitude and tone are all wrong and it just makes me sick.

I agree with tmt640- it's good on its own but as an adaptation of the game it wasn't very faithful to it.

I still enjoyed it nevertheless =D Plus, the drama introduced a lot more people to the game :)
