DH5: 055 -Tryndamere, The Barbarian King
Crabthief Fridays along with the 55th DH5! how fancy!
It would seem that crabthief has struck again! this time digging deep into the pockets of a champion and stealing their items! Looks like Tryndamere has had his brawlers glove taken from him! And he's not very happy about it!
Tryndamere is a barbarian king which pretty much makes me like his design by default. I love the oldschool armor and the giant sword with the barbed blade. The blue orbs kind of confused me as they look a little mystical and I tend to like my barbarians like Conan, who's very superstitious of magic and would much rather use a sturdy axe over an enchanted blade. Tryndamere has gone through a few aesthetic overhauls as far as splash screens have gone, and he now looks totally battle ready and prepared to take on anything. I'd need to be corrected but I believe that Marc Merril's Tryndamere was an Everquest character of his? either way I think that that's awesome that they've carried over their avatars from previous games, almost like they've gotten digitally resurrected!
Oh Tryndamere, when you see him in a game it's like a giant clock is hovering over your head. You are thinking "Ok, if this guy gets his hands on some late game gear there is NOTHING that we are going to be able to do.". Tryndamere has some really awesome spells and some cool synergy with moves, the idea that he gets to be completely immune to damage for 5 seconds is a horrifying thought and I've seen some Trynds whirl right into a group of 4 folks and just start killing everything. Is anyone a barbarian main? or just a big fan! sharpen up your giant sword and carve in a few comments! Thanks everyone!
