  1. So was the Battle of Malden when he singlehandedly destroyed the Shaido force albeit with Seachan help but Seachan admitted that they would have turned back and come back with a bigger force and they expected to incur very heavy casualties. Perrin took Malden with the same force and incurred very light casaulties and managed to destroy that rabid Dragonsworn rabble. So Perrin is still awesome. He is just going through a phase like Rand did.
  2. A thought just occurred to me. Does anyone think that perhaps, maybe, Moridin a.k.a. Ishameal, was a former Dragon? That he got tired of being the Dragon and suffering so many pain and loss that he just want the whole thing to end? When Ishameal turned to the dark side, the Pattern immediately created a new Dragon, LTT who in his previous lives may have been a false Dragon but a potential candidate by the Pattern to be the Dragon in case the current Dragon failed? Just a rambling thought.

  4. What makes you think that Egwene would bond Galad? Egwene does not need to bond a Whitecloak for political purposes. She needs only to show the world that she has things under control with the Dragon Reborn. On the grand scheme of things, the Whitecloak force is pretty minor as compared to the Aiels, Seachans, Borderlanders, Andor, the Black Tower, the White Tower, and the Dragon Reborn.
  5. 1++ Not to mention that she has those cool fangs in her teeth!!
  6. Is it just me or Graendal's POV was kinda flat? It didn't really have that kind of climatic feeling that we are so used to in previous books?
  7. As for the scouts that betrayed Galad and his troops to the others, those people could never be accepted by Galad's units. Hell, if I was on the other side, I still wouldn't accept those people. Once betrayed, can betray again. Those scouts' words are forever tarnished. I remember in LoC that Mat paid good money for the scouts. He said that he would hang the scout if his word was false. I hope that is what happens to those scouts that betrayed Galad.
  8. No LTT was real. Rand just had to come to terms that Rand used to be LTT and needed to accept LTT's memories as his own, including the actions of LTT.
  9. Ituralde had a great victory. It was not a Pyrrhic victory because he has ensured that for future generations, that he and his brethren had fought hard and won hard and that it was something to be proud of and take solace in. Moreover, he did it with lesser numbers and lesser force. Seachan had damanes and greater numbers and rakens and the likes and yet lost. If Ituralde could field 100K more, I think he would be able to pull it off. But now he has Ashaman with him, I am sure he can run circles around the Seachan and defeat their forces piecemeal like the German General von Lettow-Vorbec
  10. One of my favorite scenes was the encounter between Rodel Ituralde and Lt. General Turan. Such a poignant and tragic meeting between two honorable warriors on the battlefield.
  11. Or it could be the handiwork of Fain and the Mai'chin?
  12. I think it might be the way Trollocs transported themselves to the Aiel Waste. How did they make it all the way to Imre Stand without crossing any Aiel scouts? It might reveal a way for the shadowspawn to travel among Randland.
  13. I don't think that the influence of Aes Sedai will decline. Egwene as the Amylrin would see to that. Besides there were foreshadowings in the series that Egwene would be the most powerful Amyrlin that ever "ruled."
  14. By the way, Verin's end was one of the most poignant moments of WoT ranked along with Lord Ingtar's ending and Nyneave's Golden Crane moment.
  15. Because he realized it was too powerful. (And, it was prophesied that he must do so, but he didn't realize that.) I think the problem is that BS realized that the continued use of Choedan Kal would be a poor plot device and is actually a story/plot killer. Why continue the plot when you have the one item that can destroy the Shadow in one swift stroke. I think BS was struggling to put an end to Choedan Kal. I think it would have been better if BS made it a conflict of choices to use the Choedan Kal: Use it to destroy the shadow but destroy the world or yourself to damnation fo
  16. I don't get it why Rand destroyed the Choedan Kal when he could have leveled the Blight that was teeming with Trollocs, Fades, and other shadowspawn. If I was in his shoes, I would have leveled the Blight and the Trolloc armies and then destroy the Choedan Kal.
  17. No way Moridin will turn back to the Light. Like Ituralde answered Turan's question of "Why do it if you know you are doomed?" to "Why does a crow fly?" It is similar to the fable story of a turtle and a scorpion crossing the river. Moridin is an anarchist. He thrives on chaos and disorder because that's his nature. He doesn't care if the world ends or all creation ends. He just wants to see it burn. He has the personality of an arsonist.
  18. I am thinking that Demandred is actually King Roedran of Murandy. He is at the center of all things happening in Randland. By the way, what Faile did was brutal but absolutely necessary. However there will be a price for it. She committed murder no matter how justified it was because it was not done with justice in mind. Once Perrin finds out, he will lose trust in her.
  19. Rand is not insane. Rand is just overstressed. Why is that when he has a major problem with killing women and keeping the list, he is presumed to be insane? He is just very stubborn about accepting the inevitable fact that you are gonna have to let go of the dead and move on. Remember at the end of the New Springs when Lan told Moirraine to "say a prayer for the dead and move on."? As for the coolest battle scene, I would say the swordfight between Tumak and Rand at the end of The Great Hunt. However the coolest war scene would be the Battle of the Two Rivers. It was a damn close th
  20. I like Faile but I didn't like Faile at the time when she tried to manipulate events regarding Rand for Perrin's benefit without realizing the cost to Rand.
  21. I liked the part where Rand killed the Trolloc and gained respect from Lan when Rand told Lan how he killed the Trolloc.
  22. And don't forget that Couladin was able to deceive Shaido with fake dragons on his arms. Mangin probably after seeing what Couladin have wrought on the Aiel and his friends, got pissed that another man would try to duplicate Couladin's actions and killed him. Even though Aiel's ways are somewhat barbaric and alien to us, we cannot judge them because we have not been in their shoes when they had to survive in that harsh unforgiving pitiless environment. I mean their race was hounded by every other nation except for one and they did not receive any mercy or help for three hundred years. T
  23. Still a true general would not surrender the momentum that he fought so hard to gain. He would find a way to press the momentum. Witness General Meade surrendering the momentum when he let the bulk of the Confederate Army escape after the Battle of Gettysburg. Then he had to fight a long hard battle with General Lee for the rest of the year before another general came along and pressed hard and made sure that he never lost the momentum.
