Yeah if I had one *typically-insignificant nitpick it has to be the lack of emphasis on Valyerian steel and how it doesn't appear like damascus blade at all (which was quite detailed in the books). The only reason this even slightly bothers me is valyerian steel is part of the lore of the books, along with the dragon eggs. While in the books, the dragon eggs were IMO a huge "OMFG I DIDN'T NOT EXPECT THAT COMING" while in the show everyone sort of expected it, lost it's impact due to all the (needed) foreshadowing. In the books it's sort of like, oh the lore of white walkers, magic, dragon eggs, valyerian steel, OMFG dragons are back?!?!
*like stuff like how people look, or ages. GRRM seems heavily involved in the show so I doubt any major changes would go by without his approval (in fact didn't he state that if he could we would redo the ages in the book so that they're older?)
