    Yeah, her teleport skill is just amazing, along with her few helpful spells.
    You should give it a try if you have some time to waste on BB (no armors layers, everything else on, don't play the legendary difficulty either)

    I think i'll write a sort of guide on what to expect and how to enjoy the Legends mod.

    At that point your larping 70 melee defense the game is over and your brothers outleveled all the content. shamshirs and three headed maces are even more not optimal and useless late game.

    What? Larping? I don't get it.

    Anyway, you don't 'outlevel' the content just because you have a decent tank. A Bro with around 10 starting defense and 2-3 stars in it is easy to find and with a heater, 'Gifted' and 'Shield Expert' he'll get to roughly 70 at lvl 11. Nothing 'OP' about it either.

    The three headed flail stays a great weapon for a tank. I don't know what to tell you. It's either that or a spear, if the tank has enough fatigue for a spearwall or two. (A tank can make use of famed 'Medium Armor' here.)

    As for the Shamshir - yeah it's not great. Congratulations, you've found one of the 10-15% of weapon (categorie)s that are so 'niche' they can be called useless. The great weapon variety is still one of BBs biggest assets.

    Slave soldiers in history - well trained, well armed often fully professional or elite, with plenty of carrier advancement possibilities
    Slave soldiers in BB - expendable rabble barely armed with anything

    So tired of this trope

    Imagine investing in slaves then just throwing them away. It's just bad business.

    Being a slave in BB sounds exactly like being a regular X-com recruit.

    They have no problem adding armour from the era of muskets designed with muskets in mind though. Classic.

    Really? I'd say gunpowder weapons (hand cannons) were a thing at the time:

    I am not against implementing guns, but they shouldn't make bullshit arguments.

    Depends on the region and how slavery was practiced. A viking thrall had full rights of becoming a respected free man if he proved himself in battle. How slaves are treated is often inversely correlated to their performance and general equipment in battle.

    Edit : Ok, i've read the news, i'm not sure what to think about these new weapons.
