  1. 1/ Plot device, do you want an unstoppable Superman? Boring. Convenient numerous flaws found later aside. Same reason Choden Khal got wrecked. 2/ Logic would dictate balefire. Lanfear nearly wrecked it all, if not for Perrin. Moraine had various visions, it was miscalculation on her part, it's normal, nobody is perfect. 3/ At that time, Rand is at full OP strength (Tier 1, like Ishy and Rahvin), thus stronger than Sammael. However, Sammael is of course more skilled. Luring him there was good strategy. That's all for now.
  2. Lan, Mat, Cadusane, Lanfear, Ishamael, Rand, Perrin and Nyaneve...possibly in that order. I like the way Cadusane toyed with everyone. She was so badass, probably could have fought everyone one-on-one with the exception of uber Rand and TP Ishamael.
  3. ^Exactly. Rand would have easily destroyed all the Dark Side with the Choden Khal. Even Demandred with his little sa'angreal would have been an utter insect. It would be just Rand vs. Shai'tan, book length 100 pages, thus so boring. Were you not entertained? I was, at least with Demandred vs. the blademasters.
  4. Cadsuane is definitely a Juggernaut. She had an angreal=top level of the men strength, ter'angreal like Mat's and with some extra features, Well ter'angreal, one detects a man's ability to channel, one that detects saidin/saidar in tiny amounts, armor ter'angreal etc and etc. The Power rankings in the Companion are a bit strange. Her being stronger than Elayne, Egwene and Aviendha makes no sense and contradicts the books, unless we are talking about the 3 girl's current levels. So I wonder how much of this is Jordan's original vs. Team Jordan's conjectures.
  5. One thing that was surprising about the top tier was that Rahvin was as strong as LTT and Ishamael. I don't think anybody saw that coming. Same goes for Semirhage being as strong as Lanfear. Rahvin was a beast, no wonder he felt certain he could beat Lanfear and decided to confront Ishamael in book 3.
  6. I thought Rahvin would be tier 2 as well, bit shocking...However, he was certain he would wreck Lanfear. The author(s) stated that if LTT took over in book 5, Lanfear was toast. And Rand has not reached full OP strength in book 5. Logain is ranked, but Taim is not. Not surprised that Alivia is as strong as Lanfear, I always suspected. However, Semirhage? Nowhere does it state or imply in the novels that she has crazy strength. This is RJ's scale, so it is canon. Rand would wreck Jaime in a purely blademaster contest btw. Jaime is too weak mentally.
  7. Direct vs. indirect weaves. Neither the original or the copies could stop indirect weaves. I doubt that even the original could stop Demandred+his sa'angreal. Too much raw power, the Weaves would be too large to disperse. Certainly Rand and the Choden Kal, nothing will stop. I seriously doubt that even the gholam could survive that much raw power directed at it. The Weaves would be earth shattering in size. At one point, Rand was the Death Star. Very doubtful that the ter'angreal could stop the True Power weaves. Even more doubtful that the gholam could, given that would be
  8. Thor's hammer was impressive. Indeed. I wonder if any of those Darkhounds were the unkillable T-1000 type that Perrin wrecked. I would have loved to see the Gholam vs. T-1000, that battle would have continued for a very long time. Hope to see this in a video game at least.
  9. Lan has fought essentially none stop and was half healed when he fought Demandred. Lan's POV stated that if he started fresh, things may have been different, not requiring the sheating the sword. Demandred having "centuries" of practice with the blade. Demandred did think Lan was LTT/presumably the #1 blademaster in AoL, stated nobody "in this AGE" could be that good, thus Lan > Jearom. I would assume that Demandred was #2 blademaster in AoL and Demandred Pov in River of Souls stated he thought nobody was his better with the sword given his recent practice. Lan > Rand >
  10. Rand's understanding of the Matrix increased to a level beyond LTT after Dragonmount. God like capabilities started to occur to a greater extent than LTT had. LTT 2.0 After this confrontation with Shai'tan, his understanding expanded even more. LTT 3.0
  11. Yes, Rand does have God like powers in the last 2 books, after his moment at Dragonmount. Brandon tries through Ishamael, but fails miserably to stating it is all tricks (which makes absolutely no sense given the decriptions of what Rand has done). I think Brandon when a bit overboard with Rand's capabilities and was trying to make pull back. However, the last scene in the books was all RJ...lightining the pipe.
  12. While I brought it cheap with Amazon, it is not worth it. It is 12 pages long (not 13 really, given 1/2 page intro and 1/2 page "conclusion"). You are not missing anything. Spoilers below: Demandred goes to fight a Worm to become a sexy, slim Wildthing. Yawn. Demandred gets a final piece of Suckernan. End of story.
  13. I agree it made no sense. Sarkenan was only a little more powerful than Callandor and Callandor having no buffer theoretically has "no limit". According to Logain PoV, the amount of saidin drawn by Rand was greater than at the Cleansing. The Light would have used Sarkenan, CK if they had the opportunity. Rand was also an utter fool to destroy the male CK. It is just a plot device of course. World War type, nukes, chemical, bilogical, drones, droids...all will be used. As for this short story, it was soooo short, could have easily fit into AMOL prologue.
  14. I would think if one does to pray to religion x in time y = hell or equivalently nice time.
  15. I would Perrin would have 19 strength, Lan 18/00 and Rand slightly below. I believe at 18/00, able to lift 400 pounds. Perrin can likely lift 500-600 pounds straight up. In the real world, men have lifted far more. Dex, both Lan and Mat 19. Rand's intelligence score far too low. Rand 18 (Wisdom 18 after LTT integration), Egwene should be 17. Rand had to learn on the fly, adapt like crazy, mass manipulations, in the end he manipulated Egwene et al very well..out fox all the Forsaken (now and AoL), beat Shai'tan... Someone like Einstein would be 19, highest human IQ is probably Leon
  16. Get the Kindle edition, far superior than any paper. And all the books are in Cloud, thus you never lose your stuff.
  17. Rand making ancient trees appears within a few minutes, that is also impossible. Controlling the Pattern. Rand making DF's go mad by his very presence, impossible. Rand does many things which are impossible. In Mat's and Perrin's case, I see no control of the Pattern, just affecting probablities. Although Odin and Thor are great...Perrin becoming nearly an Unstoppable Juggernaut once he became the Grandmaster of TAR.
  18. Rand is influencing the Pattern pre SG, although to a limited area, which is countering Shai'tan's influence. The sky, the trees, the fauna and freak accidents do not happen in his presence (3 mile radius or so). One with the Land, sure, but that is controlling the Pattern directly. Supposedly ta'avern can't do this, but there it is. Post SG, his Powers have moved to another level.
  19. Grandael could be the most skilled female Forsaken in One Power usage. She certainly had no fear of confronting Lanfear (book 5), even though Lanfear is stronger. The only one Grandael feared confronting was LTT. Grandael was also in a circle with several Aes Sedai slaves, thus she was able to combat Avienhda's circle, Amys circle, Cadusane and Aliva ...however she did this simultaneously! Moghdien is a pretty pathetic villian, but she is the weakest of the pack, beside Asmodean.
  20. According to some, one of Verin's Last Letters was to Rand, speculation has it that she named those two as somewhat powerful darkfriends. Rand is seen pocketing a letter with a distinctive red seal. That doesn't quite make sense to me. The first time he did it there would be no reason their heart rates would increase because they wouldn't know he could do that. Also, while we have seen plenty of cowardly darkfriend's, there are also some brave, heartless types who I don't think would start to panic and give themselves away to Rand. I also have a query about how the Jesus-Rand quote

I also have a query about how the Jesus-Rand quote. My interpretation of it was that saying he wasn't Jesus referred to the fact that he didn't have any particular protection/special relationship to the Creator. I don't really see how it parallels to Je
  22. This is Brandon trying to pre-retcon Jesus Rand. Moridin assumes quite a lot and Rand stated Moridin's vision is small to Shaitan, who agreed but said he was a useful tool. Only when they shied away from him because the "Light" was he sure they were DF's from what I recalled of that confrontation. DF's also went made at Maradon due to the "Light".
  23. It was. That has been confirmed by Brandon(not that it needed to be, we see him singing). Although his improved mood and "one with the land" Fisher King deal helped. Again lets put Jesus Rand to bed: Brandon Stopping a full circle shield, woven by at least 13 channelers (Taim would be chosing his strongest Asha'man/Black Ajah and very likely leading the circle himself). Titan. He became much closer to diety after AMOL. He battled Shai'tan (equally as powerful as the Creator) and defeated it and had the Power to destroy it. Thus for a very brief momment, Rand's Power level &g
