    Default Jiumozhi at age 40 vs Tianshan Tonglao at age 40

    Jiumozhi is around 40 years old in the novel (眼看鸠摩智不过四十来岁年纪). Tianshan Tonglao is around 96 years old. When she was 40 years old, do you think her martial arts level was better or worse than JMZ?

    Well 60s years DCQ way below 40s JMZ so I think 40s TSTL should be around JMZ/Greats level..

    If we ignore the actual feats in the novels, just looking at Xiaoyao Pai's MA repertoire, their people's talent, and their reputation (Tonglao's anyway), I think logically, Xiaoyao Pai elders should be at least 2x the level of JMZ and XF. Maybe 3x.

    And yet, there are few feats that suggest they're more than 1.5x the level of JMZ. IMO, this is another case of JY's WME: Wishful Math Error. Just like WCY's level to the Greats and GWM's doubling of MA but no better than other Greats.

    Well I don't think WYZ or TSTL 3x better than XF since if we using that logic Xuzhu should be at Janitor Monk level..
