Quotes: Scary Impractical Armor
Tynian: That is the most idiotic display of pure childishness I've ever seen. Their armor's almost useless. Good armor is supposed to protect the man wearing it but to give him a certain freedom of movement. There's not much point in turning yourself into a turtle.
Kalten: It looks sort of intimidating, though.
Tynian: That's all it really is - something worn for its appearance. All those spikes and hooks are useless, and worse yet, they'll just guide an opponents weapon to vulnerable points. What were their armorers thinking of?
