Why Wigfrid is not a true warrior?

Recommended Posts

I don't really see why a warrior mindset has to condemn ranged weapons. They're pretty dang useful if you want to kill things!

 

Also bipolar syndrome isn't what you think it is, as far as I can tell.

I was just wondering what kind of weapons real Vikings actually used and I found this:

 

http://curiosity.discovery.com/question/what-kind-of-weapons

 

Just for those who don't feel like reading it, here's the interesting part:

 

Vikings also used wooden bows made of yew that were longer than axes and similar to English longbows. The bows had a draw weight of 90 pounds (40 kilograms) of force and could shoot arrows 1,600 feet (480 meters). A sling was a more affordable missile weapon, and was made of a leather pouch attached to 39-inch (1-meter) long strings. Slings could hurl stones up to 1,300 feet (400 meters) to break enemies’ bones. The Vikings also used lighter throwing spears or javelins, usually when enemies were within 20 to 40 paces.

 

I guess Vikings did use ranged weapons after all!

Then Wigfrid is bipolar.

 

Wha? you were the one saying ranged weapons are for wussies, not Wigfrid. I think that you have in mind something more along the lines of knights or samurai, with an honor and chivalry system. Wigfrid is acting as a Nordic warrior Valkyrie. Many military forces used ranged weapons without thinking then cowardly, Vikings included. No sir, you have misunderstood the character and are just building a tower of balony on a structural base of Glommer Gloop.

You're forgetting that combat in this is not always "battle". It's often "hunting".

 

I'm no expert, but I highly doubt vikings would fight rabbits, birds and the like with swords.

:wilson_worried:

This is truly turning into an intelligent conversation.

Considering how we have already collected reasonable information as to what weapons Vikings use, I'm not entirely sure how this argument is still alive. Unless you want Wigfrid to somehow be more courageous than Vikings, there really is nothing to argue about as they did use ranged weapons.

There is a very wildly known difference from being courageous and being stupid. Wigfrid knows this difference and thus uses ranged weapons in combat. A possible reason she only eats meat is because meat can be considered a strong food that is eaten by warriors unlike vegetables which take no combat effort to create and can be seen by warriors as inferior to the meat collected from hunting in the wilderness.

Although I never said she was intelligent, I never said she was necessarily dumb either. Most(if not all) of what she says can most likely be attributed to her performance as a Valkyrie. She doesn't eat vegetables because she believes that Vikings never ate vegetables because of their weakness as a food. Many people are willing to die for their beliefs so it is plausible that she would die for the same reason. She would rather die than give up what she believes is her brilliant performance.

She is commited to her character, not stupid! It's called method acting. Your grasping at straws here.

You're telling me the Snipers are strong and brave?

Oh sure, is so brave hide in a bush and shoot.

The true warrior goes to melee, If Wigfrid is so brave for not break her diet of meat and die, she is so brave for die in a fight

Sniping is very dangerous. You could get shot by one and not realize it before you see him/her across you in a building. As for snipers: you can get too focused on the battle that you'll stay scoped in for hours and easily taken out by a soldier from behind. Wigfrid is also an actress who developed too much in her role. Valkyries don't eat plants so she doesn't eat plants.  Also her outfit is to fit the role she's trying to "portray" the role of what the wiki says she is supposed to play and is a reference to:

  • In the files, she is referred to as Wathgrithr, which comes from the name of one of the Valkyries, Ráðgríðr (Rathgrithr).
  • According to the character info, she's an actress, not a real valkyrie.[1] This might be a reference to the famous opera cycle by Richard Wagner called The Ring of The Nibelung, also her name Wigfrid is a reference to the same opera cycle's main character Siegfried, but the character is possibly based of the main female character Brynhild who´s a valkyrie.
