The right arm armor is the most difficult to strike off. In the game, gladiators with shields lead with their left (shield) side. Ever try to remove Celadus' "Red Right Arm"? I had to stun him and then run around his right side in order to hammer at his right arm.
@hyenaz So, just for you, I tried fighting him in the main game, and he does indeed have the German Manica.
Sorry that you aren't having luck getting the manica.
I did it! I got that German Manica from Guilelmus! Thanks for the tip.
What I do to remove it basically play it on normal mode and use two-handed mode and strike with left slash. It took me around 3 tries since he kept dying before the manica came off. But, anyway, I've completed it now! My aim now is to get those 99 99 x equipment and raise all skills to level 50 while beating despair mode.
Anyway, you got all 500+ pieces of weapons and armor in the game?
That sounds crazy.
No, actually I just collect the standard equipment provided in-game only, without the DLCs. Just followed this list: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/969694-gladiator-begins/59072740. I have around 490 equipment now, some special gladiator equipments are double, like Fang Cestus from Spartoi and Hercules Mace.
For Iron Maiden helmet, I have downloaded Venus char provided by sejembalm, but seems I cannot knock it off and ended up dying a lot. :) Guess I need to refine my equipment first to 99 99 99.
Hyenaz, remember I uploaded two Venus versions to the character bank, one at day 16 with a 50-weight helmet and one at day 39 with a 90-weight helmet. The day 39 Venus has an endurance of 446, but I equipped her with +250 points to strength in order to carry that crazy-heavy armor (99-weight Buckler, 80-weight Myrmillo Manica, 65-weight Silver Peregrine Crosses).
Unfortunately, my Venus game save was rejected and I don't know why. Perhaps because I used 7-Zip to zip the file to the .zip format instead of WinZip? I resubmitted using WinZip.
