Future use of Ettmetal

5 posts in this topic

Here are a few Ideas I had on future use of Ettmetal in the Mistborn world.

  • Ettmetal round bullets: Ettmetal is extremely reactive with water and we assume blood. If you made bullets out of this stuff its essentially explosive rounds except far more deadly.
  • Investiture warding juewelry: We know that Ettmetal can copy allomantic powers. If you were to have Ettmetal jewelry that copied Aluminum allomancy then it will purge your soul of unwanted investiture. This will essentially make you immune to direct forms of Investiture. Although it will probably also wipe all of your allomantic and feruchmic reserves.
  • Ettmetal guns: Guns made from Ettmetal that copies steel allomancy. This gun will be able to fire bullets extremely fast without the kickback.    

What are some other Ideas you guys have for future uses of Ettmetal.

I don't know if we have seen Ettmetal copy Feruchemic abilities yet. The faster computers thing though I am so on board with. You could do the reverse with Cadmium for food storage.

That is not how that works.  Aluminum wipes your own alomantic reserves a coinshot can still kill you if you are burning and you can still be soothed.  You could make a field of leaching with the jewelry using chromium but it would get expensive and someone working at range could still effect you.  If you want to be absolutely immune to investature and aluminum suit is realy your only option and even that is not 100%.

Ricochets are defiantly a problem.  If you don't hit your target and your bullet bounces something else might blow up.  If your target is wearing body armor that may be an enormous problem.  We also don't know the density of Harmonium so it may make inaccurate or ineffective bullets.

You should still get kickback just like with regular allomancy.

A coinshot is not effecting you with their investiture, they are effecting the metal and directing it at you. It's like how people who are holding stormlight can't be effected directly by other NR but they can still be killed if someone lashes a giant bolder in their direction. What you are describing is normal Aluminium which is different to allumantic Aluminium.

A normal ricochet is a problem but from what we have seen so far Ettmetal only explodes when exposed to water not on impact. It may be that Ettmetal works like that but for now we haven't seen it. 

 

Edit: sorry didn't read it right. You are correct that you would not want to miss your target.
