because from the legends I read as a kid, once Gae Bolg was thorwn it could not be stopped
when Cu Chullain met his best friend Ferdiad in mortal combat Ferdiad wore an apron of Iron 6 inches thick designed to deflect Gae Bolg
When Cu Chullain threw the spear at him it went straight through the Iron and once inside Ferdiad the spears curse activated
1000 Barbs grew from the spear head and ripped Ferdiad to pieces
Actually I would have loved if the game used the barbs like in the legends
it would have made spear of imapaling barbed death the most vicious noble phantasm
if not the coolest
oh, so you're an Irish, then? ^^
but even rho aias wasn't able to defend against gae bolg; it was destroyed thoroughly. only the seventh layer resisted, before it was completely destroyed after it has stopped gae bolg.
even archer said that even though it was stopped, gae bolg still manages to destroy rho aias ( but couldn't penetrate it ).
still, all existing nps fall before ea.
