  1. Well the foreshadowing was already mention in RoW after Shallan recovered those memories. Pattern acting like a new spren that was just pulled into the CR. Pattern saying he wa sure she'd kill him, but then saying they'd send a replacement. Mainly those, and then I saw people posting about describing different colors for her blades. Some of your points are good though, like why Testament didn't scream or why she wasnt there for their first trip.
  2. Theres enough foreshadowing that I think he had 2 shallan cryptics planned at least since WoR.
  3. Well he can manipulate Connection so probably he can Connect himself to Fortune or whatever property atium uses to see into the future.
  4. These flashbacks weren't nearly as emotionally charged as the others but I did appreciate how they filled in some of the details leading up to the Everstorm and return. I wasnt really clear before on how Venli could have met Ulim before Taln broke. I figured Odiumspren must have been locked on Braize but seeing that he was actually brought in a gem by a Terriswoman serving Odium makes sense .
  5. I just went back and looked at some of those parts again. I think question 3 he was referring to Dalinar. It seems like he sensed something with what happened with Unity. Can't really be sure though.
  6. She was looking for the heralds. I think it said Midius drew them if I remember correctly. Midius is another name for Hoid/Wit. Not sure on question 3. Maybe Nale?
  7. I think that these WoB's are saying that spren will be repelled by hemalurgy, or the type of person who would use hemalurgy in this way. I don't think Brandon is saying spren will be repelled by a bond to another spren, as you seem to be implying.
  8. If he's writing the prologue does that mean he's done hammering out the outline?
  9. I thought the same thing when I recently reread OB.If she was hunting Vasher I assume she would have went with the group figuring they could take her to him.
  10. To my mind these 10 people wouldn't be Honor, if that's how it went. They would be... I dunno, Shardlets of Honor? I'm not really sure if that is even plausible. I would guess that with Honor being Splintered it might be harder for someone to become the new Vessel.
  11. Given all the information I know of, I'd say Dalinar's chances of surviving a quite good. I won't be surprised if he survives. I won't be surprised if he doesn't survive. I also won't be surprised if he becomes the new Honor, or if he doesn't. Also MB spoiler: So it doesn't really matter if Dalinar is being built up to take Honor. I know that it's entirely possible that things will get twisted, and that plot twist doesn't have to involve is death. Or there might not be that plot twist at all.
  12. Actually, this makes me wonder something. A Shard without a Vessel might not normally have it's own sense of identity or personality. We don't really know enough to say for sure... But I do believe Investiture will begin to gain sentience if there's enough of it gathered together for long enough. So now I'm wondering if the Shard Odium was separate from any vessel long enough to start to have it's own mind, which could be why Rayse is using the "we" pronoun. I kind of doubt this is the case, considering that Rayse doesn't want to absorb another Shard because that would change him from Odium to something else, but it's an interesting thought. More likely he really is using it as the royal we. Or possibly there is a race or culture out there in the Cosmere that uses these types of speech patterns.
  13. Cultivation's? No, she's on Roshar. It would be Aona or Skai's or maybe a perpendicularity for the Dor since there's no vessel for the Shards and their power is pressed together in the Cognitive Realm.
  14. I believe the 4th and probably 5th Ideals will play into two themes that have been playing out all through Kaladin's life, even back into the flashbacks. First is the idea of knowing when to care and when to let go. And the other is over the question of whether you can kill to protect. In the battle at Kholinar, Kaladin froze because he saw different groups fighting and killing each other to "protect" (or secure/advance) something they believed in. I think Kaladin will need to accept that he might have to fight people, even people he cares about, if they are fighting for something that brings them into opposition with him. Later, right as he's about to say the 4th Ideal, his struggle isn't so much about people fighting each other. He's remembering times he failed to protect people. He can't let go of those deaths. He can't let go of the idea that he can't fail Dalinar, but also can't protect him. That's when he admits he can't say the Words. So I think that the 4th Ideal will be something like "I will forgive myself for those I couldn't protect. I will let go of the responsibility to save those who are beyond my help."
  15. It's not a dawnshard. WOB: And also this other one:
