Post Favorite LOTR Weapon
on: May 16, 2014 04:45
My favorite weapon is Herugrim, King Theoden's sword. Also Aduril, the bow and arrows of the Galadrim, and Aragorn's dagger that he uses to stab the troll in the movie.

My favorite would have to be hadhafang, due to it's smooth design and it's mistress
However I also love narsil because it cut off the hand of the dark lord.
My final choice would be the elf sword thorin wields, yet I can't remember the name nether the less it's sick

Thorin's sword is Orchrist. Narsil only chopped off one finger. Even that deserves respect.

One of my favorite weapons in Middle-Earth is Glamdring, Gandalf's sword. The best scene of Galadrim was during the fight with the Balrog...

Isn't the best weapon just the fact to refuse power, and so the ring ?

Do Tauriel's bow and her daggers count?( I mean, I know she's not canon, but I love her weapons) I also love Sting.

Favorite? Gotta go with the classic: Sting. It's small, like me. And it glows. Ten points for that.

I would like to mention a very underrated weapon.... The sword of Westernesse that Merry carried.

"So passed the sword of the Barrow Downs, work of Westernesse. But glad would he have been to know its fate who wrought it slowly long ago in the North-kingdom when the Dunedain were young, and chief among their foes was the dread realm of Angmar and its sorcerer king. No other blade, not though mightier hands had wielded it, would have dealt that foe a wound so bitter, cleaving the udead flesh, breaking the spell that knit his unseen sinews to his will.
-The Battle Of The Pelennor Fields
Book V - The Return Of The King

This passage is so powerful. The sword that undid the Witch King! The Dunedain, with their Numenorean skill, made some great weaponry. No, it wasn't elven-wrought, but the First Age knowledge of the Eldar was learned by the three houses of Edain, and Numenor was a mighty Kingdom, and this carried over to the Numenorean realms in exile. This nameless sword gets little mention. And I wonder what he who wrought it had named it. I love the lore!

It is yet another thing that PJ Boyens & Co totally stuffed up in their re-write screenplay ... eliminating the whole of the North-kingdom and any tale of it.

I love Narsil and Anduril after it. I also love Sting, slayer of spiders; the sword helped Bilbo, Sam and Frodo out heaps of times.
