  1. I just finished Vol 3 and enjoyed it. I was really excited for it too, checked the release date regularly. It's not necessarily the best Cosmere work, but I'm really glad it's there. I like it way more than Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell. I love sand mastery and playing "Spot the Hoid" aka Where's Waldo Cosmere edition. Cant wait to see where the series goes. Been saving reading the Pros until Vol 3 was out, so that's next!
  2. Just finished Vol 3. I enjoyed it and the art. The series isn't Brandon's best work, but I like it. I really like the magic system, intrigued by Baon being a sand master! I think Kenton is a great character (even if it's a shame he cant get fleshed out as well as other characters). I'm looking forward to more. (Plus playing Where's Waldo: Hoid Edition is fun) Edit: wish we could've seen something with Trell. That was a super tease in Vol 2 but, there's always another secret.
  3. I'd go A-Brass/F-Zinc. Quickly think through problems with the ability to sooth my way out of situations, making Intuitive leaps on what emotion to soothe what emotion. Double zinc would work the same, but there's a WoB out there that compounding can be dangerous to stop once started, and another I believe stating that a zinc compounder runs the risk of becoming stuck in an "eternal moment of thought". Definitely wouldn't want that. So the brass/zinc offers much the same benefit without the negatives of compounding.
  4. This thought has been driving me nuts for a while, and I came here to ask this exact question haha. Glad you beat me to it so I could just read all the replys! I guess since there's a WoB saying Allomancy is of Preservation, I'll just accept it and move on, but I was thinking exactly along the lines you were
  5. I agree completely and think the dragons breathe fire is the biggest piece of evidence for Endowment being a dragon holding a shard
  6. soother!! exactly what my friends said I'd be (and I'd probably want to be)
  7. Double luck would be pretty sweet. Like walking around always under the effects of that Harry Potter luck potion. I still think I'd go A-Brass/F-Zinc (if not Bendally/Zinc). The practical uses of that combo are amazing. Not to mention.. all the money making opportunities lol (which, I guess there'd also be a lot of Money making opportunities with double luck too haha) I love thinking of all the combinations!
  8. Oooo, now that's a super fun and potent power! I like it.
  9. As an avid scuba diver, I sure hope so lol
  10. I noticed that as well! He never out right rejected it. Although it does seem like someone would have to "give Odium their pain" to be influenced by him, and I would imagine his champion would have to do the same. So, that may have been the rejection
  11. Brass/Zinc!! Thought about this one for months haha. Be able to quickly plan strategies in battle, or to read people in a second and use soothing. Yeah, I'm good with that haha. Utility in battle, but also super useful in the modern world we live in (I wouldn't go double Zinc because there is a WoB somewhere about zinc compounders potentially getting "stuck in an eternal moment" mentally) Edit: I actually bought and wear a ring made of Zinc just for this reason
  12. We don't currently have anything conclusive. My guess on the issue is: We saw a stoneward use cohesion in a vision. In that vision he had to reach out and touch the side of the mountain, invest it, and then shape a staircase out of it. To me, this is similar to how every time we have seen Shallan use soulcasting, she is holding the object (the cup and the Legendary Stick); while Jasnah we have seen multiple times use soulcasting from a distance. I don't know if it is from a WoB or just speculation on the forums, but I believe the prevailing theory is that Jasnah can soulcast from a distance because of transportation surge. There is a WoB stating that his original idea behind stonewards was "everything is clay in their hands, not just stone and rock, but everything". So, given that WoB and the examples from books I mentioned, I believe that Stonewards can shape absolutely any material that they can lay hands on. Willshapers on the other hand can manipulate a lot of material (I think at least soil and water since they actually have a cohesive force that can be calculated) from a distance, like Jasnah and her soulcasting from a distance. That's my thoughts and impression on the issue given what we (I) currently know
  13. I just started the epilogue of Oathbringer moments ago. This whole read through I noticed the way they talked about the Parshendi rhythms and Timbre's pulses. Those two are the same thing, but the way they're described throughout the series is extremely similar to the way they describe a bronze seeker seeing the pulses of a rioter/soother (and other allomancy, but rioting and soothing specifically have multiple "wavelengths" the different emotions operate at). The same cosmere law of physics seems to be associated with the rhythms as seeker/rioter/soother allomancy, and the rhythms are based on emotion it seems. I defenietly think there is a connection and think the potential "resonance" of the Willshapers is to "shape wills" similar to soothing/rioting
  14. I actually am a Civil engineer and have spent countless hours studying cohesion and tension as forces, and transportation (as a design discipline, although not my focus). My focus is hydraulic, geotechnical, and construction engineering. Probably why I'm so hung up on figuring out what Willshapers can do lol
