@pastepotpete1: ... Did... you just really try to compare Valyrian steel with admantium? You.. do realize Valyrian steel aren't lightsabers that cleave through plate armor and other people's weapons like they aren't there, right? They are just better, more durable, swords.
Case in point:
He parries swords, has to knock through their guard. He doesn't cleave through their weapons. Hell, he couldn't even slice through the wooden haft of an axe.
Or have another:
Brienne's Valyrian steel sword doesn't cut through the Hound's sword. Hell, the hound grabs it with his hand, and she can't just pull it out and severe his hand into pieces like she could if it was admantium.
So, comparing Valyrian steel to Admantium is the dumbest thing I've seen yet. Admantium swords would be slicing and dicing their way through plate armor and other people's steel swords like they weren't there like dang lightsabers. Valyrian steel is just titanium, to put it into a metal that makes sense. Its stronger then steel swords and lighter, but isn't some super material with insane properties like Admantium or Vibranium.
Also going to assume you meant 'Valyrian steel weapons' and not 'Valyrian steel armor' since armor is way more rare as it requires more of the material and the Dothraki don't run into armies armed with Valyrian steel. A handful of people in an army might have some, but that is it. '
Now, to say 'Valyrian steel weapons makes armor pointless, duh!' is another thing that is so derp that it has rather surprised me. You know what place has a lot of valyrian steel swords, comparatively? Westeros. Even some minor houses lay claim to one. You know what hasn't been rendered ineffective? . Plate armor is still used in Westeros because it works.
The fact you even tried to talk up Valyrian steel as this godlike material.... then ignore how the Dothraki use a Khopesh, one of the worst swords, in existence, for getting through or around armor is utterly hilarious.
besides the chineese dynasty which a lot of the " chineese men were paid or underpaid gurads or castrated servants wanted to turn on their masters " name a couple of groups that these mongolians conquered
the Huns destroyed a couple of Roman legions and Goth armies and germanic tribes .. name one place that one of the Khan's beat using stradegy and not just overwhelming them with pure numbers .. raping and pilgaming women and children .. wow i guess you really need a thick coat of armor for that .. how far did any of the Khans get into Europe like even a inch ?
Atlia the Hun made it al the way down into Italy and they starved to death because Rome was already sacked and didnt have nything they cold live on but atleast Atlia the Hun got a world tour of Europe Khan just got told bed time stories of Europe .. Heck , the people of Europe didnt even care about Khan's they were too busy fighting a bigger thereat " Muslims "
Besides armor is not something you want to bring to a fight when somone is much bigger than you
average heigh of a european is 5'9 and half inches tall and from 5'4 -6-10 somewhere between 5'11 is the median weight is not uncommon to be 6ft tall and weight 240 pounds of muscle which allowed them to have heaviver armor
weight of a asian man like 5'3 or 5'5 and weigh like a buck thirty five .. i am sure they had heavyarmor but i dont know once they got knocked off their horse it was game over because the armor has holes in the arm pit regions where they foot soliders put their knives if you werent a knight you still had to fight i hope you know that ? you would be used as a " foot solider"
