Pulling water from a pond or river

Recommended Posts

In a New Spring Moiraine used Water, Air, and a touch of Earth to pull water from the pond soaking Alan. However, in the Gathering Storm Aviendha uses Wat, and Air only to draw water from a river in the chapter “The Death of Adrian.” Anyone have ideas or is this just a case of the Arthur mistake.

It should be possible to draw water with only Air or only Water. Admittedly I can think of no reason why a woman would use Earth when it is unneeded and she is weaker in Earth, but it seems far easier for a channeler to use a taught weave than invent a weave.

It may have been unintentional difference by the author, but it isn’t a problem.

There may be countless ways to draw water, but the basic forces seem to be pressure/force to move the water and constriction/direction to guide the water.

Remember the way someone is taught is how they believe it is.  It simply could be that's how Moraine was taught.  The one thing we learn about Aes Sedai is they don't really experiment much to find better ways for things.  Nyn was told off for experimenting with healing and informed it's dangerous to experiment.  So few Aes Sedai are willing to take the risks to find better ways to do things.
