Well Hello There Fellow Gamers And Hivers

It's been far too long since my last For Honor episode! I think it's time we get on the way with this series again!

In the last episode The Warborn retook a harbor that was occupied by The Knights, retaking it proved to be really valuable because it allowed us to gain access to the Narrow Sea and what lay beyond proved to be even more valuable!

Incase you missed the last episode, check it out.

Dont Forget to check out the gameplay video at the bottom of the post


Crossing The Narrow Sea

After retaking the harbor at Odingard we wasted no time in scavenging what we can find usefull and rallied our armies! We needed boats and a lot of them, more than we have ever needed! Our time to strike was nigh.

The Narrow Sea was easy to cross the only drawback would be what would await us on the other side of the ocean. The Samurai they called them selves, fierce and disciplined warriors with blades sharper than any we've ever seen before.

Or so the tales are told.

I think we go and find out for ourselves.

Expect Nothing Less Than Preparation

We knew that they knew we were coming, they were more than prepared, but so were we. We brought every able man who was fit for battle! Besides we are The Warborn what could strike fear in the heart of any of our men? Certainly not men who hide behind metal masks!

We landed on their beaches with the Gods behind us.

A Hard Landing

We lost a lot of ships with the initial landing on the beaches, but their defences only held up for so long and we managed to break through! It was no doubt a very hard landing.

What I couldn't quite comprehend was the fact that these so called Samurai's still had their main fortress gate open after we stormed the beaches. Either a very smart move or a very stupid move.

Perhaps they wanted to break the morale of our men by closing the fortress gates in front of our eyes, but we Warborn we don't break that easily. More so we came prepared! Grappling hooks, a technology we picked up from The Knights. If not for them we'd probably be like sheep left to the slaughter.

Scaling The Walls

After I made my move and got atop the walls I had some advantage, most of these easterner's thought they would be safe upon their high walls. They seemed to be much smaller than our men, but not all of them. It was on top of these high walls that I met one of the biggest and fierce warriors! A worthy battle opponent! Wielding a heavy mace, a mace almost bigger than myself!

We traded blow after blow until I finally managed to drain him of his stamina, big men often last long. They are sure footed but slow stepped.

The Gates Needs Falling

I stood there wondering how I got this far. It must be that the Gods favour The Warborn. If it's the will of the Gods then that will must be done!

Never will we kneel.

The gates! The gates had to be opened now! This will be our key to victory! And most important a heavy morale booster for The Warborn.

Defeating Fujikiyo

It was when I opened the gates to the fortress, it was then when I first met eyes with The Samurai commander Fujikiyo. I knew then and there that he would wait for me on the battlefield and I would return the favour!

Fujikiyo seemed like a man with more patience than that of his men, waiting for the right moment, fighting with tactic and not feelings. In situations like these patience can be they key to victory!

He was smart, he chose his dueling area well and if he happened to die he would die in the place of his choosing, infront of the palace he was protecting. No greater honour can be bestowed onto a Samurai.

Fear a man who has nothing left to lose.

A common saying and one that should be taken seriously.

Fujikiyo fought relentlessly giving very little breathing room between his blows, a well trained Samurai with more focus than I first thought. He wielded the longest one edged blade I have ever had the privilege to lay eyes on.

Shall I make it mine?

Great to see you around, even if it is with s a game I have never been able to play, or at least in the foreseeable future, this particular game have been in my to-do list since its launch and Im still far away from reaching the requirements to be able to play it, even less play it with a strong computer of all things.

I gotta say my pc isn't the best of pc's aswell.. 😅 But ot does run it. However I wont mind playing it on something better too.. But I got some different priorities now and I bet you too😜 One day no doubt😎

Glad to see you around too broh, I think I should put you on notifications. I rarely ever see any of your posts🤔 yeah let's do that!!!

See ya around😎

Lulz, MY bad couse im taking a bit of space with the hivemotors stuff and fixing some personal shit life trowed at me at xmas, like always do, anyways if you wanna read me just look at my hive and if you ever need something reach me in discord, I think i have you on several discord servers, but if not, it is the same username but with a B at the end xD

Big hug bro, your "not best pc" is still a lot better that what I could get in venezuela with all of my money, for example It is a refurbished machine, there are no "brand new" in here... So you can see how things go...

Friend that graphics so good that this video game has, I had forgotten the high that he had at the time, he looks really great, I hope to play it, for my honor!

Its definitely a must play I can tell. You that 😜 and it has a long story line as well... Longer than I expected. But give it a try. Its free on xbox game pass

What incredible graphics, I've been wanting to play something like medieval for a long time, unfortunately it doesn't run God OF War, but my pc doesn't run it.

I am playing it on a fairly low graphics card... The 1660 Ti? With a 6th gen i3 cpu... So it's also not the best build around.. I don't think ill be able to run god of war as well😂 cpu won't handle it..

But for what im playing it on it does have some neat graphics😍

Fujikiyo is one of the best samurai man. We should accept that if you don't have the heal ability you lost to him. It was exciting. I'm looking forward more For Honor episodes.

No that's a fact, that heal saved my ass.. Three times over, that guy hits insanely fast😂 I struggled to block attacks 😂🍻

Yeah I kinda forgot I was doing the series 😜😜 but will be sharing another the end of this week😎😎

Yay! 🤗

Thank @misshugo, I do appreciate it a lot😜😜

character movement and combat feels .. sooo ... sloow! but i do like the "Viking V Samurai" idea.
i might try the game for a while!

I get what you're saying, but I do wuite like it.. Especially with the fact that the characters played are big and very armoured and carry large weapons, thus making it sort of realistic.. But I do get what your saying..

Its free on xbox game pass!



"characters played are big and very armoured and carry large weapons, thus making it sort of realistic" yeah, i get that too

for the strength, to carry said armor!
