  1. I don't think it's a coincidence that Adolin bonded an Edgedancer's shardblade, which is both totally suited to reviving a forgotten deadeye and Adolin's own character. Honestly if it doesn't happen it will be because Adolin is dead (RIP Elhokar) and unable to carry out the development implied for his character.
  2. AI use cytonic processors. I guess that annoys the delvers, but why they care about that and not the slugs is beyond me Do they? I think it was just cytonics in general. We've really only seen one cytonic-delver interaction up close. Brandon said something in an interview about cytonics having different specialties, and that things like cytonic transmission or mindblades might come more naturally to some people than others, even though they might all be capable of the same things with enough practice. It still bothers me that Jorgen couldn't hear FTL comms while flying in space, though.
  3. We do know he can create the Bands, which means he's a Fullborn, no?
  4. Vin all rounds. She has range, and steel lasts longer than stormlight. If Bonus round is Vin with the mists, she stomps that, too.
  5. Marsh is an Inquisitor with access to most of the metals and a lot of the most dangerous compounding. That said, he's a gnat to Kelsier or the Lord Ruler. He might be able to keep up with them in reaction speed, but nicrosil compounding means that he's still a fair bit weaker than either of their boosted A-pewter, and also won't be able to move quite as fast since he won't be as durable. He might be able to get in a lucky shot with duralumin though. I think it's a fair bet to assume TLR did not have access to nicrosil or chromium, even if he did have knowledge of them. It would be really hard to produce either with pre-industrial technology. But even if he did, he would be at a disadvantage when facing Marsh or Kelsier, who know his weakness and how to exploit it. Kelsier is a Fullborn, and so is equal to The Lord Ruler in power, though he only has 300ish years of experience to the Lord Ruler's 1000. Despite this disadvantage, Kelsier is possibly even more dangerous than the Lord Ruler is, since, as a Cognitive shadow, he may not need atium metalminds to extend his life, and thus would not have an easily exploitable weakness. In any case, both Wax and Marasi were able to push on metals embedded in peoples' bodies by increasing their level of Investiture with F-nicrosil. Kelsier would be able to do the same to TLR's metalminds, even if he swallowed them. Kelsier has easy access to all sixteen metals and can leech the investiture out of any opponent he faces (though he hardly needs to!). Unlike TLR, his access to nicrosil is confirmed and he will definitely be able to abuse Nicrosil and Chromium (either of which would probably guarantee a win if the Lord Ruler doesn't have access to them) If the mists are in play, Vin could be as dangerous as the others above, but she still probably does not have the hax to beat Kelsier, who has access to compounding, as well as Allomancy on mist-powered Vin's level, though he would have to expend metals to use it. Zane would die fairly quickly to most of the power players, including the Heralds and Elantrians. Vasher is out of his league, no? I doubt he survives the massacre at the beginning, even with his enhancements and skill. Everyone dies except for Kelsier and maybe Jasnah by escape to the Cognitive Realm TL;DR: Kelsier wins easily, with Rashek being his only serious opponent. Even then it's not really close, since Kelsier has infinite luck and Allomantic potency to go along with functionally infinite healing, speed, and strength. Plus you can't kill him by pushing on his bracelets.
  6. The only people on the battlefield who matter are Marsh, Kelsier, Rashek, and maybe the Heralds. Elantrians are powerful but don't have enhanced speed, though if the steelrunners give them a few seconds to get a barrier set up they might get dangerous fast. Susebron is another glass cannon who is too slow to be a real threat, but unlike the Elantrians he can't raise unbreakable walls at will. Taln probably has the best speed feat in the cosmere outside of steelrunners, and even without stormlight is measurably faster than a normal person with stormlight or A-steel. With the heavy stormlight enhancements that Heralds probably have, he and the other heralds could possibly pose a threat to the fullborn, but we haven't really seen the Heralds use their abilities yet. Marsh and Kelsier probably end up ganging up on Rashek to win after the three of them clear the rest of the field.
  7. How would one even learn in-world what Hemalurgic effect Lerasium has? As far as I know there was never enough Lerasium in circulation to even make a single proper spike. So this knowledge would probably have to come from a Sliver (of Ruin? Not sure what kind of knowledge a Sliver has access to) or one of the Shards themselves.
  8. lol i hope theyre trolling with predictions (temeraire over cthulu, the shrike over aslan?)
  9. We have never seen anything indicating that Kaladin can do this though. Adolin says that it takes serious concentration and training, and Kaladin has never done this or even thought about doing it. It's also not in character for Kaladin to run away from a fight by flying a few hundred feet in the air, and stormlight runs out a lot faster than unburnt metals.
  10. I think you could take this WoB either way in terms of the harmonium question, but Silver does have a Cosmere role.
  11. Silver?
  12. combat

    they wrote the ars arcanum right? They certainly know them well, and some of them can be accessed by knowledge alone. With some preparation at least they would dominate
  13. combat

    Yay, bragging rights! I would assume Nazh and Khriss can win since they have access to all the magic systems, but for now W&W cause feats
  14. He stole a bag of atium beads from a Kandra in HoA when the Second Generation took over and sent one of their followers to trade atium for supplies in the outside world.
  15. Raoden has a better chance of killing the lord ruler than susebron does
