“Winter is Coming Live” chat “Maester” Bryan Forrest is what you could call a Westeros weapons expert and he’s a guy you want on your side as you try to take the Iron Throne. Each week Bryan will be discussing the different weaponry used in HBO’s original series Game of Thrones and this week he digs into the history and the story behind dragons and how they came to be — and not be — in the Seven Kingdoms.

If you already know all about dragons in Westeros, you can also check out the other great episodes of Weapons of Westeros, in which Bryan talks about the Stark ancestral sword, Ice, the mystical Wildfires, King Joffrey’s blade, Widow’s Wail and Arya Stark’s trusty sword, Needle.

Check out the latest episode of Weapons of Westeros after the jump!

  • Dragon – air, sea and land capable large attack unit. Armoured. Multiple forms of physical close combat attacks, claws, jaws, tail, wings. Ranged dragon fire. Dragon fire burns stones.

    Usage:
    anti infantry, anti emplacement, anti mounted troops, anti ship

    Best Anti-Dragon Weapon:
    Black Arrows. Note that dragons will dodge, so you usually need some sacrificial troops to distract the dragon to get a clean shot. Archers don’t get much practice on live targets and archers that miss usually don’t get to try again.

    What to do when you see one:
    Send for the brown pants

  • Good stuff Maester Bryan. There’s still Oathkeeper, Jon’s sword from Jeor, and I also think it’d be really cool if you went into all the different types. For example: dirks, knives, longsword/shortsword, war hammer (Robert Baratheon to be specific), Dothraki’s weapons, spears (Unsullied), poisons, etc.

    Not to mention Areo Hotah’s axe when and as appropriate.
