    The Eagle

    Post by Yarxov on Wed Jan 16, 2013 1:28 am

    We are gathered here today to remember the fallen.
    Our dearest shield, that flew ever so high.
    The Eagle Shield, has faded into uselessness.
    Tis a sad day, as many Roman Legionnaire cosplayers cried out in anguish as their health dribbled down.
    And Like Rome the shield falls, along with its holder.
    The turtle shell has cracked.
    The wall of glory crumbled.
    my favorite character useless.
    So let us never forget, the glory of the Eagle.
    ...

    You have to BELIEVE for it to be useful!
    I'm mostly bummed because I wanted to cosplay a Legionnaire sad
    Welp. Going shieldless.
    No one Believes anymore. I PvPed successfully with an unbuffed whip and light crossbow. Just the mentality man. Game changers.

    I believed I could win in PVP only by kicking. It worked once.

    I never used the shield to me it was an average shield to use in PVE and it only served as entertainment for PVP.

    whips are very viable, i enjoy using them. greatshields are actually hard to use unless you have havel's, eagle shield sucked against pyro, and of course the shotel. what i do i leave my second spot free so i can parry the guys that pull out a shotel.

    Havels is too much to be useful, yeah I probably wouldve regretted using it instantly anways. The trek alone isnt worth it.

    For its inablity to parry, or lack of special attack, yes.
    But the weight/stability ratio is probably the best in the game

    You can still make a Spartan warrior work:

    - Giant Helm
    - naked chest --> you need to get that after NG69+ without rolling once!
    - Iron Bracelets
    - Balder Leggings

    - Any kind of spear is good (like Pike or Partizan), or Broadsword
    - Iron Round Shield

    This looks really good, I promise you

    AHEM.
    ROME =\= SPARTA
    Sparta is a city state on the Balkan Peninsula in Ancient Greece.
    ROME is on the Italian peninsula. Different cultures times ways of life and warriors aswell as tactics and success.

    I know that, but it's in the same kind of line to me. It's not completely different like, let's say, a brute Viking of some sort silly
