About Snapping...

5 posts in this topic

Snapping was originally caused by trauma or damage. Then Harmony changed the process of snapping. How? What did he actually do? Now what has to happen to cause one to snap?

Snapping was and is caused by extreme conditions, it could happen when your Soul is cracked. This happen mostly after a trauma because it is more likely but you could Snap after feeling a great happiness or similar situations that still crack the souls.

The only thing Harmony did is to lower the threeshold need to Snap, so now it's more easy to reach (how he performed this is unknown)

Well, I guess you Snap now by breaking a toy or something.

Actually what Harmony did was release mobile phones equipped with Snapchat so that all of Scadrial could start snapping more frequently.

He made the threshold easier to reach because he wasn't a fan of people beating their children to see if they were Allomancers.

In Alloy of Law are people still Snapping?

Sazed chose to alter the way Snapping works. It bothered him. It does happen, but differently.

How does Snapping work after Sazed changed it? If you don't want to reveal it all right now, are there any hints you can give us?

He couldn't get rid of this entirely. I don't want to spoil things, but Snapping was built into Allomancy primarily because of larger-scale magical issues. This is getting deep into the issue, but it has to do with a person's spiritual makeup and a 'wounded' spirit being easier to fill with something else, kind of like a cut would let something into the bloodstream. Sazed made this threshold on Scadrial much easier to obtain.
