    Even a Nine-Ring Guan Dao (which I assume is what Green Dragon Crescent Blade is) has an use, mainly for distraction and blunting an opponent's blade when blocking.

    Distraction? What warrior worth his salt will actually be distracted by a bunch of rings? And how do the rings do anything to blunt an opponent's blade?

    Easy, it's like hearing multiple bells tolling. You get the picture. Every single trick counts as long as you win.

    And the rings themselves have something to do with even disarming, although I'm not sure how that is done exactly, will have to research more.

    EDIT: Apparently the whole blunt/disarm thing is tied to a certain Chinese Guan Dao Martial Arts technique.

    The Guandao being his historical weapon itself is likely a myth (it would be several hundred years later that it was most commonly used). Most of his achievements were fictional, attributed to Luo Guangzhong when he wrote Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Others belonged to others like that of Sun Jian.

    Still why are we talking of mythical gods in a video game and viability of weapons lol. If we go that route why is a notorious lying squirrel of the Yggdrasil tree so deadly haha.

    I don't know about the weapon itself being a myth, there are some sources that claim the Green Dragon Crescent Blade is displayed in Purple Cloud Temple in China, that one weights 48 kg.

    I like the Idea on Nike summoning Spartans, or at the very least sweat shop workers who throw shoes at targets. Honestly as long as her kits better designed than the last warrior we got I'll be happy.

    The goddess of victory. Like someone else pointed out, the shoe company, Nike, originated from Nike. She'll probably have a basketball skin in the future or something like that. Since you know, sports and all.

    Nike is the Greek goddess of victory. She and her siblings (Kratos, Bia and Zelus) were the children of the titan Styx, and helped Zeus during his war against the titans. They were afterwards appointed guardians of the Olympian throne.

    Well, they DID name themselves after the goddess.
