    Weapons arent nearly as heavy as people think, here you can see reproductions of both type of war hammer i mentioned:

    As you can see, the horsemans pick is just under two pounds, and the pollaxe is just under 4. To put things in perspective, a longsword is about 2 to 3 pounds. Even a zweihander, what people call a "great sword" is only six pounds, even a slightly smaller person could comfortably swing it around with a single hand, not very effectively mind you, but thats more so due to its length and weight distribution than its actual weight.
    Because of you

    families can get their child the cancer treatment need without worrying about how to pay for it. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. They can provide free housing to families, so kids aren't stuck in a hospital room while receiving the best cancer care.

    Its still heavier than a short sword, and the length makes it hard to parry if you mess up.
    I never knew that weapons were so light though, thank you.

    This will help in future discussion

    Would you ever fight on horseback?

    A bow would be better, crossbow reload time in GoT is like 30 seconds per arrow

    This is the guy who first got me into historical arms and armor, hes a weapons reseacher history buff who runs a couple HEMA schools, where he teaches martial arts based off of medieval fencing manuals. He also buys and sells antique swords. Hes also done a handful of videos analyzing GoT.

    And no i probably wouldnt fight on horseback, seeing as theres no way in hell id be a knight. Just like being an archer, mounted combat takes very specific and very dedicated training that a lowly commoner like myself just wouldnt have access to.

    Would you consider joining the brotherhood for flamed weapons?

    I guess to clarify, id choose war hammers because even the common infantry soldiers, particularly the lannisters and other wealthy armies, tend to wear some form of plate, which percussion weapons like pollaxes and hammers are tailor made for bypassing.
    Also just on a funny note, john snow, who is a FUCKING KING wears a coat of plates, which is actually the thing that the cuirass, or breast plate, thats used in a full suit of plate is thought to have evolved from. So not only is he wearing arguably worse armor than common soldiers, hes wearing armor that should be outdated by atleast 70 years or more.

    I think if you have the skill, duel weilding swords could be more effective.

    Not only are you doubling your defence, but you are doubling your attack

    here:

    1 sword;
    100% attack
    50% defence

    1 shield 1 sword;
    125% attack (shield bashing)
    300% defence

    2 sword;
    300% attack
    100% defence

    Just what I think though,
    Obviously, it is situational as well.

    I think with a shield plate armor would be the way to go - make yourself as tanky as possible, you would need a longer reach for it to be effective against more talented foes though
    How you gonna defend against arrows and thrown weapons with dual-swords? I ain't going to war just to get killed by an arrow..

    True. Mihawk is stronger than both Shanks and Akainu. He can win against this version of Whitebeard with high or extreme difficulty.

    That CUNT SpiRo can get the fuck out. The act of watching graphic stuff like that is not in and of itself bad. Ive always had a fascination with snuff and disturbing films. If youre going to argue that im not a good person or whatever because of that, then i guess every single person who likes action movies, manga, sports or anything that contains physical combat and violence must also be the same. There is a distinction between having an INTEREST in something and ADVOCATING or APPROVING of it.

    What do you mean do I think Vergo could beat Sanji, it already happened in the manga.

    Zoro is stronger than Vergo, was the same seat level as Pica and Zoro effortlessly put him down.

    Zoro would beat Sanji with even less difficulty than he beat Pica.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy. The guy can stitch his internal organs after taking a Counter Shock hit, sword wounds are a piece of cake for him. Vista's Mihawk level Haki and base stats would probably push Doffy to high-difficulty though.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy with a sword. Plain and simple. It's same like beating Buggy with a sword or Jozu with a sword. It's impossible, use your brain.

    No, it has nothing to do with 'imports' or whatever. Half the fault falls on the one being rapped rather than the one rapping. I mean, it's like putting a tasty pizza with mayo on it in front of the hungry you, switch on the quite music, prepare the drinks, and yet ask you no to eat it.

    So, Shanks is the protege of the PK? and Mihawk is the protege of the Apes king ? both of them were on the same ship idiot, not even a hint on who Roger preferred from the both in the manga, and when did i fucking say that Shanks has no potential, didn't even say that he falls to Mihawk in that aspect, i'm merely saying that we can say who.

    Monkey, Mihawk said that he ain't fighting Shanks in that specific meeting of their, and it was in a sarcastic way of denying because he didn't come for fighting unlike usual, he came for showing him Luffy's poster.

    How you gonna defend against arrows and thrown weapons with dual-swords? I ain't going to war just to get killed by an arrow..
    Armor should do the trick, if you wear plate.

    Although you make a valid point

    I suppose those with lower defence would be sent to the woods, arrows would be much more avoidable there

    Although, if you hold out your shield, it only will protect a percentage of you, the arrow can still hit you from behind or on the sides

    In 1 on 1 combat, the shield would be more effective, but think of the sheer numbers you could shred through with 2 swords

    I'd fight with a feather and paper, organizing a bunch of red weddings.

    In case I'd really have to fight, all my weapons are poisoned of course. The fucker who takes me out shall not live long. Why isn't this a thing anyway, everybody should poison his blade.
