  1. I disagree on pretty much every point you just made, Nitavonne. Androl and Pevara was a much needed interaction and the dialogue was fine. "Another known Asha'man"??? The lack of Moraine+Siuan/Lan/Others was very glaring. I felt Nyneave's position wasn't that bad. Could have been more...yes...but its a hard balance. Glaring mistakes about Mat/Min? Like what? And I dont know idea what you mean by "Quality of the history" - History lines.
  2. To each their own! There are lots of people exaggerating the faults of the last book. I wouldn't take the bad stuff here too seriously. I got through the entire thing without catching anything these guys are saying. After reading their comments I'm like "Yeah....thats true" - But it doesn't bother me.
  3. To everyone who has got the sads, it gets better. Give it a week or two, took me about 5-6 days of bitter/sadness before I accepted that it was over and am content with it. @EmperorAllspice, Don't read these threads if you don't have the final book. Everyone goes into it with different expectations.
  4. When Lan took down two Myrdraal at once, I nearly shit myself.
  5. No, my comments are not pointless. In 100 pages all that I mentioned could have been easily addressed. Again I say I am not expecting another book's worth of material, but something as opposed to nothing. I get that you like the idea that we have EVERYTHING left open and thus that's an appropriate ending, but I completely disagree. We got an ending to TG, but NOT an ending to the story. The story of WOT is not only about TG and I expected the "end" to be more than just "Battle's over, so everyone go home!!". In a perfect world Jordan wouldn't have died. In a perfect world he w
  6. @mrhumble: Your complaints about closure are really pointless. Robert Jordan WROTE the epilogue, Sanderson was then UNABLE to write anything after Rand. He also left many parts of the plot clearly open for the outrigger trilogy he had planned. I enjoy RPing, so I absolutely LOVE the open ending. It truly symbolizes the "this AN ending, but it is not THE ending" - To wrap up all of the characters it would have taken a whole nother book at minimum, to simply do it justice. Admittedly for a good 3-4 days I was super agitated about not having more closure or what they will do. It too
  7. First of all, You are pursuing this buffer argument like it makes or breaks the entire last books plot. The responses you are getting from some of the more avid fans is because of this. Every flaw you guys speak about is like it ruins the entire book for you. You also make a lot of assumptions, the first being is you are equating Angreal to Sa'angreal. They are not the same. They have different names, among other things. You also make another LARGE assumption "Even if we have 3 that don't have the buffer, you can't say that all sa'angreal dont" - You can't say either way. We only KNOW
  8. As for why the Angreal hasn't been discovered to have no buffer, how often does an Aes Sedai use so much of the power that they would take in that much? Would they be aware they COULD go farther? What if a channeler doesn't they can go past the safe area unless they actually do?
  9. You could. But to be blunt, it'd be like listening to a stand up comedian but not understanding 90% of the jokes, or the context. I understand your impatience, but you wouldn't enjoy it as much as you think you will.
  10. I'd say start with either the Mistborn Trilogy or the Stormlight Archive (the way of kings). Those are going to be longer series, and I'd say are more so his flagship books. Elantris, Warbreaker, are also worth reading. TSA is probably going to be the closest to the WoT, as it is his Epic Fantasy, and it's very well done.
  11. Yeah. I think I was smoking something when I posted this.
  12. Rane, I'd take your point more seriously if you could give examples of major angreal's, all of them specifying buffers. You are saying "most have the buffer" but I don't remember buffers being mentioned very often.
  13. Okay. So I have spent the past hour re-reading a bunch of parts of WoT with circles but I can't find something to disprove or prove my theory. If there are two circles, one led by a man, on by a woman, and both were wielding Saidar and Saidin, could the man see the woman using Saidar? I'm pretty sure I'm wrong but I've been trying to find an example in the book where it says they couldn't see the opposite power. I suppose I'm trying to figure out cross-gender teaching of the one power. I've had a lot of people tell me one way or the other, but none have any proof.
  14. Suttree, do you have any links to examples of what Jordan wrote? I'm not good with identifying writing styles. Or perhaps even a few scenes you know of.
