I think one blogger put it the best: He pumped all his stats into STR leaving nothing for INT.

Typical tank build.

Full STR - The stuffs he carries
Full VIT/CON/whatever-you-want-to-call-it - Damage he took
Some DEX - He didn't miss
Maybe some AGI/SPD/etc - Can't tell yet
Maybe some LUK - Refer to ura ep. 1
No INT/WIS - Idiot


...That just made me want to go back to play some MMOs.

But shouldn't Gilgamesh have had better safeguards. He was sleeping near the courtyard of all things and no body double. No extra guards. That really seems odd.

So this was like taking a page out of Assasin's Creed?

Yeah that's what I was thinking as well. You'd think someone as important as him would have better security. Did they think "oh it's Gilgamesh, he'll be fine. Any assassins will probably trigger his survival instincts and he'll own them." Or maybe they were working under the assumption that if they guarded the front door to the building there was no need to put guards near the room.

The guy was 100 yo and didn't look like the F/sn version. They couldn't have believed the hype.

I hope that the king was aware that his "Let's get rid of the tower!" drive was unpopular with the locals there. You think that this was a cause for the assassination?

I would hope that the assassins didn't take out the body double. That would mean an extra episode for straightening out this mess. I want them into the dungeon crawl asap since this is 12 episodes long.

You didn't need magic to know that. It's called "having a spy network". Neeba's group knew about the assassination so it couldn't have been that much of a secret.

Yeah the F/sn version would be embarrassed to hear about what happened to this Gilgamesh. Of course if it was him in that world the tower would have been taken care of in no time .

Is likely the drive to get rid of the tower was a cause for the assassination. Make good money from people going in there. Equipment repairs, housing, food, etc. It's like a gold rush town. If they can do something to keep the rush going then it's all good.

So we're also opening the door to that being a fake Gilgamesh?

Well, considering the original Gilgamesh scaled the tower alone and beat Druaga's face in. I don't think a bunch of assassin's would take him out so easily.

Maybe he had a ton of hp. How much damage can a dagger do anyway.

Maybe Gilgamesh got poisoned or drugged first and the dagger was the finishing blow. He was asleep when it happened. It didn't look like much of a struggle.

Can also be a classic Diablo 2 Thorned Avenger His kit probably has some serious damage mitigating gear coupled with the high str and con score. Can explain why he doesn't miss with a shield

Also explains the idiot's willingness to take a hit with the reflect damage

lol, not playing an MMO is more healthier, that's something that playing wow has taught me

Jil is more sturdy than he looks remind me Gourry from "The Slayer" series> the preview didn't suggest a large scale man hunt for the death of the king, Jil is still running around freely fighting monsters. I'm more incline to believe the king isn't dead and the assassin only left at the sight of being spotted before checking the corpse.

btw, who here believe Kaaya is related to royalty. With a personal bodyguard and enough money to live a carefree life and with a goal assembling a team to climb the tower, I hope there's more to kayaa than just a an oracle acting on a whim. It all makes me wonder how Ki is going to have any role in this series.

EDIT: some minor things

Kaaya is from Ki's blood lineage. So her standing and etc is to be expected.
