Runaway Penguin Posted August 4, 2016 Share Posted August 4, 2016 Exactly. They are warriors, they are not an army. They probably could build pallisades - Wildling settlements would have them - but then there is a reason why in the land of armies, stone walls were the norm. Same for the water option - they are no sailors. Send even small Watch war galley among rafts and crude boats, massacre. Plus no matter what you do, there is the time factor. They needed to get past Wall FAST. Digging a hole through unstable glacier (plus, arguably, with stone core) is going to take many false starts and a lot of hard work, same for building elevators etc. on it. While you do this, the Others are...coming... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
