Thread: GWM during LOCH

  1. #1

    Default GWM during LOCH

    What was GWM up to during LOCH? He would have been pretty powerful during that time, so why was he unknown to the Mongolians until ROCH?

    I think he's pretty young back then (he's only like 10+ yr older than GJ if I recall correctly. Definitely younger than the 4 Greats). Perhaps he's still training to become the Mongolian Priest.

    He Hit LV8 of "Dragon Elephant Image" in pre16 ROCH. During LOCH he could be only at LV4 or 5. Since the power "doubles" every LV, he might not be that powerful during that time (imagine GWM with only 1/8th internal of the one at Martial Arts Meet).

    Probably just a goof up or inconsistency on the part of Jin Yong for giving the impression that he was a unknown figure because I don't think it was explained very well why he was unknown.

    LOCH is full of great martial artists. GWM is just a sore loser. If he appears in LOCH, he would be on his knees most of the times begging other martial artists to spare his life.

    He had gone to Tibet to study Lama Buddhism and martial arts at a very young age, and did not return to Mongolia until he had attained a measure of fame in both of these disciplines.
