    Umm... if you were hunting boar for real you'd use a boar spear, not a lance. That's a relatively short and heavy spear that has bars or lugs below the blade to hold the boar off, because wounded...

    Meh, the translation I've got is misleading about what happens at the end but I see others have it differently, Fair enough.

    But as you're wrong about everything else, that makes us even :p

    Err... why, exactly, when shields would be cheap and easy to make? Your imagined peasants seem to have a death-wish.

    I said it was standard kit and it was, including among the Macedonians you're going on and on about because hey, guess what, not all their infantry used sarissas. And since pike formations (phalanxes...

    Nah, you've just gone off down a rabbit-hole. The Macedonians also had guys with shields and normal-sized 1H spears.


    Nope. That's as may be, but with the 1H spears Turbine are simply emulating...

    The context is a game in which every fight is a skirmish and hence weapons that were only ever useful in close formation aren't even relevant. You can see guys with 1H spear and shield on everything...

    Err, context? A sarissa was a pike up to twenty feet long used by guys in phalanxes, not something one guy would wander around with all by himself. it's only a practical weapon if there are a whole...

    Not really.... think Anglo-Saxon or Viking warriors (and pretty much everybody right across the ancient world, long before that); spear and shield was standard kit for them. Turbine are only...

    Like I already said, it's way more recognisably derived from the books whereas you took just one word and tried to turn it into this whole huge pile of nonsense.

    Well, there's always riding off to war in the East and South with Aragorn and Eomer... although given who they'd be fighting (Men, Sauron's former hangers-on) and given what it'd presumably be like...

    False premise. WoW was massively more popular to start with and the smaller but still vast audience of paying customers means they've got plenty of money for development. (Although it seems that...

    The trouble with that is how people might be expected to react to someone who got up to horrible stuff like that. Angry mob, torches, pitchforks :)

    In the book there are neither any obvious 'spirits' nor 'creatures' beneath the water in the Dead Marshes (the movie's a different matter), there were just those creepy illusory images. Certainly...

    They're not really 'summoning' them in the magical sense, notionally the Oathbreaker's agreed to help them as a way of making good on its misdeeds in life (like the Dead did in the book) and so the...

    Being a necromancer in the first place would imply having been particularly evil, not just slightly. Necromancy isn't just a little bit naughty, it's always been imagined as particularly dark, foul...

    That's rather the point, they've taken a bunch of stuff whereas you've taken just one word.


    Perhaps, but then that's purely Turbine's version and yours seems to otherwise have little or nothing...

    Yes, there's some actual necromancy, the key example being the Barrow-wights: the Witch-king sent evil spirits to dwell in the barrows so that they could haunt the former realm of Cardolan and...

    Hardly, PvP was a thing in MMOs long before WoW was even thought of. There's always demand for it, just as there is for raids. Turbine's earlier MMOs had PvP, as well.
