  1. As long as there are enough bindpoints for a power I see no reason why taking multiple spikes for the same power wouldn't cause an amplification.
  2. He could have also doubled-up on some powers to amplify them. Extra steel allomancy could be useful.
  3. My point is that I didn't think there was a problem since I thought that the Hybrid category had been made canon.
  4. Hybrid feruchemical powers has been the canon name since the release of the Feruchemy table no? It's officially on Brandon's site.
  5. I mean, hemalurgy in general is probably pretty dangerous to Hoid, but no. Nightblood is probably still more dangerous since it's irreversible annihilation while in theory you can survive and recover from a spiking.
  6. Not even powers, lerasium can probably steal all attributes a person possesses at the same time and pass it on to a new recipient.
  7. I feel like ability might refer to all variants of hemalurgy, powers and non-powers. So basically lerasium would steal the entirety of a person to add to another person, which sounds both very interesting and very dangerous and could potentially lead to interesting situations. What if you spiked yourself into lerasium then placed it in someone else? How much of that person would now be you? Or if you dumped it into a body without a mind, would it effectively be binding your mind into a new body? Lots of fun there. Nicrosil is interesting and I think is an important clue. Up to now I've held the thought that the "Investiture" of nicrosil feruchemy has always referred to ability to use manifestations of investiture (powers across all magic systems), in other words, limited to only that part of the innate investiture (soul). However, one main counter thought has been that it refers to the entirety of the soul, ergo anything that hemalurgy could steal. However, given now that nicrosil hemalurgy "steal Investiture," if Investiture is referring to the entirety of the soul and everything that hemalurgy can steal, then that means that nicrosil hemalurgy can steal anything that any other spike can steal, which seems a bit much and to me makes this idea feel less likely. At the same time, I think it does cast some shadow on my idea since my idea of what "Investiture" means that it includes the abilities of steel, pewter, brass, bronze, cadmium, bendalloy, gold, and electrum plus others, plus "powers" seems to be more directly referring to what I was defining "Investiture" as. Hopefully Brandon has some answers for us soon.
  8. Forgery fails off-world or even outside of the active Domain it seems.
  9. He was a reduced-strength mistborn, not lerasium.
  10. Yeah, the shardplate of Radiants probably can repair itself much more quickly than the shardplate that much. Still, developing technologies would still neutralize any advantages that shardplate and shardblades have before too long. With regards to long-distance spren weapons, that's probably possible to a degree, but guns would still out-range them in most causes probably.
  11. Long range weapons are always going to dominate. Coinshots in a modern city could probably easily beat a shardbearer since they could remain out of reach and shoot coins which could probably slowly damage the shardplate until it locks up. Guns would probably have a similar effectiveness against shardplate. A shardblade sword is fairly useless until you're in melee range and provide hardly any defense against bullets until then.
  12. Not really, because then they could just remove blood toxins or replace blood. Wouldn't actually help with the issue of them bleeding out and you'd be spending a lot of time soulcasting to replenish. A flesh soulcaster who could repair the body would be a far better medic.
  13. Maybe if you used hemalurgy to splice a bit of them into someone and it managed to hold in their children...
  14. Not really. Stormlight is the power that the metals brought. What's filtering and shaping it within the surgebinder is something else. Past that the rest of the analogy is correct, with the mists being a more direct amount of a shard's power fueling them.
  15. I disagree. That line by the Stormfather seems to be referring to the lot he threw in with Dalinar, that he had to bond with him and work with him, with the alternative being that Odium would win and he would be destroyed. Pattern's line seems to very strongly indicate that the Stormfather survived the event which killed many spren, which would've been the sundering of the bonds they held.
