Which one is the stronger one between the two? My opinion goes to the dwarven warrior.
^They aren't skinny tall though. They're tall and very muscular. Dwarves are muscular too but if the qunari have twice and much mass and are equally muscular, then they are stronger. I mean, that's just math.
There are other factors of course but in a straight up brawl between a qunari and a dwarf, with no weapons or armor, the qunari is gonna win 9 times out of 10.
I'm just gonna say this based off of physical abilities. Qunari have the height and the upper body strength whereas Dwarves are quite short and "stocky" they are usually depicted as either muscular or fat whereas Sten, the Arishok and the Iron Bull are all shown to be buff af. I'd think that, considering the Qunari we've seen, one Qunari vs one Dwarf would end in the Dwarf's sad demise.
Isn't Oghren stronger than Sten? How come Sighrun stronger than Sten? Or am I missing something? I think Oghren and Iron Bull should be equal right?
^i give the oghren fight to sten because sten is more disciplined. i think sigrun beats sten because of her speed and agility. oghren beats bull in my opinion because i thing with the berserker rage he can take more punishment(or at least just not care).
As for the height plus mass argument, it would stand to reason that the Qunari is slower. and im not talking hand to hand because it would be far too one-sided
What if Oghren fight Stens at his prime without being drunk?
I think the only disadvantage for the dwarves is about the matter of their height.
^^^Why would the qunari be slower? If anything they'd be faster, they have longer legs.
If you start bringing weapons and equipment in the equation, then it becomes a different question. The fact that you think hand-to-hand would be one sided proves my point. In just a straight up brawl with no weapons or armor, the qunari would obviously win.
Oh, and there's no way Sigrun could beat Iron Bull, Sten, or even Oghren. She's a squishy rogue. An Origins rogue sure, but still a rogue. In an one-on-one fight, any one of them could be beat her while drunk. Sten and Iron Bull could do it while drunk and with both hands tied behind their backs.
In a one-on-one fight, speed doesn't count for much, unless one person is like a thousand times faster than the other. Sigrun could beat any of them in a race, sure, even with her stubby dwarf legs. Or maybe in a kill count contest. Or a game of hide-and-go-seek. Or a trivia contest. There's lots of we should beat them. Just not in a straight up fight. And that's not because she's a dwarf, or even because she's a woman. It's because she's a rogue. Her skill set is not built for straight up fighting, unlike the others.
The qunari's longer legs might make them faster in a foot-race, but not necessarily in a brawl. If anything, the dwarven size might be an advantage since they have a much lower and smaller 'hit-box' than the larger qunari. Rogue Sigrun is not a good comparison with the likes of Sten or Oghren since they are warriors. A better female contestant might be Valta or someone like Hanashan. Finally, let's not forget that Oghren *is* at his prime when he's drunk. However, the original question is about strength, not skill. In that case, the award might have to go to Aveline. 😊
^Dwarves may have a smaller hit box, but the longer arms and legs of the qunari means that they have more reach. And even the average female qunari looks buff enough to lift up a dwarf with one arm.
It's true. Longer qunari arms and legs will be more useful for reaching cans on a high shelf. Meanwhile, dwarves don't have to duck through low door frames. Given the question is about strength, not about a brawl or weapon skills, Renn looked strong enough to easily lift any qunari with one hand (with the possible exception of the Iron Bull). Perhaps we should be considering how many cows or brontos they can lift.
