Did Moraine intentionally fake her death?
ie, the bond didn’t break, Moraine passed the bond before she launched herself at Lanfear. Lan was unconscious so he wouldn’t have noticed. And no one else would have either.
She may have known she had to convince Rand not to come after her and her apparent death was the easiest way to accomplish it.
Moraine may have also know Nynaeve needed Lan so she could have the wherewithal to help Rand.
Actually when Reading of Rand shielded I learned something new that changes things vastly.
When Women link, the person leading actually loses the total she can draw.
Siuan was using women linked, so she only had a fraction of what the ten women could channel independently. That fraction may have been large (9/10) or small (3/10) but it is probably somewhere in between.
But when 6 women shield a man, they don’t link. All 6 independently shield the man, that’s why there are 6 points and if a woman leaves, she ties off her own weave (at one point Rand had three knots holding his shield).
None of this answers the multiplier effect of the saangreal.
I agree Nynaeve may have been wrong, but how far off can she be? Also this was before she reached her own max. Say Nynaeve attained her max some point before fighting Moghedien.
You can carry water in a metal bucket, or a plastic bucket, or a glass vase, or a ceramic jar. You could scoop it up with a wooden spoon, or a glass bowl, or even a hat.
Just as there are a lot of ways to do the same thing in mundane tasks, there are a lot of ways to do the same thing with the Power.
