Dragon glass or not: Valyrian Steel is still the best way to kill white walkers and ice zombies. We have compiled a list of the characters who wield a dragon steel weapon in the Battle of Winterfell in episode 3.

Gendry (Joe Dempsie) has made himself useful: Together with the other blacksmiths in Winterfell, he made weapons from dragon glass for the assembled troops in the eighth season of "Game Of Thrones", so that they even had a chance against the White Walkers and theirs have undead armies that cannot be killed with conventional weapons.

But Even better than dragon glass is Valyrian steel against white walkers and ice zombiesas we've seen throughout the series. Not only is a weapon made of Valyrian steel much more robust as one made of the hard and sharp-edged but fragile obsidian. At least White walkers can also be killed much faster with Valyrian steel: When Sam (John Bradley) stabs a White Walker to death in the third season, it slowly turns to ice and then breaks:

A hit with Jon's sword Longclaw, on the other hand, immediately dismantles the White Walkers into their individual parts in both season five and seven:

But who besides Jon wields a Valyrian steel weapon in the upcoming Battle of Winterfell? We have put together an overview:

  • Jon Snow (Kit Harington): Longclaw (German: Langklaue) Once owned by House Mormont, Jon was given to Jon by Jeor Mormont (James Cosmo), his predecessor as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch.
  • Brienne Of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie): Oathkeeper (German: Eidwahrer) is one of the two swords forged from the two-handed ice that was once wielded by Ned Stark (Sean Bean).
  • Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau): Widow’s Wail (German: Witwenklage) is the other sword forged from ice and has passed from Joffrey's hands to those of his father Jaime.
  • Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen): Heartsbane (German: Herzbann) Has been with House Tarly for about 500 years, but Sam stole it from his father's castle and placed it in the capable hands of Ser Jorah.
  • Arya Stark (Maisie Williams): The Valyrian steel dagger was intended to kill the seriously injured Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) in season one, and eventually ended up in Arya's possession in season seven. Let's see what she can do with it ...

In the early morning hours of April 29, when the third episode of the eighth season “Game Of Thrones” is available in Germany, we will find out whether this arsenal made of Valyrian steel can give our heroes an advantage in the Battle of Winterfell.
