A New Use (And a Big One at That!) for Aluminum

58 posts in this topic

Okay here's a thought. If you could burn away the spear there would be already strange effect. Suddenly in this almost meter long piece of metal is instantly gone with nothing in its place. The air in the surrounding area would rush in cause a fairly useless(but theatrical effect)

This brings up something. What good would (assuming it would be possible) removing, say, a sword that had gone straight through you? The wound would still be there, you'd just be bleeding out faster...

 

 

Now just get misting who uses aluminiums effect on touch range to attack Szeth.

 

That wouldn't be Aluminum it would be Chromium. Aluminum only dissolves your own metal reserves, whereas Chromium burns that of people you are in physical contact with.

 

Edit: Chromium not Nicrosil

I thought that was chromium, and that nicrosil was the one that acted like dularium but externally?

You're right. Sorry I read the Coppermind page wrong.

Though it might be interesting to use nicrosil on Szeth... get him to positively flare with stormlight for just a moment. The light would prolly penetrate walls.

I have just revised the post. Hopefully that will help direct the discussion towards a definite yes or no. Of course, I guess the final say goes exclusively to Brandon.

 

Does Brandon Sanderson read this forum ever?
