Bronze Allomancy

6 posts in this topic

So I just recently found this WoB.

Questioner

Does bronze detect Investiture or only Allomancy?

Brandon Sanderson

Investiture. It can be used for other things. But like most detection methods, it doesn't look for wells of power, it looks for power that's being used, generally. You get enough power together, and bronze will be able to find it no matter what.

This brings up the question, would a bronze Seeker be able to detect the Highstorms on Roshar? No one but Vin was able to detect the WoA as it was being filled and that was a lot of Investiture but it wasn't kinetic. Would the Highstorms be easier since they are one extremely Invested and two actively spraying Stormlight everywhere?

it would definatly be alot easier to detect a high storm since its actively releasing investiture it would make a lot of noise so to speak youd also possibly start hearing the rythms like a singer as per this wob for a fun little side effect

Can an Allomantic bronze burner hear the Rhythms on Roshar?

Brandon Sanderson

Yes, this is possible.

Hmm... would someone skilled with bronze be able to detect the Mists ? (though they tend to resonate with Allomancers regardless)

the mists themsleves are kind off just there not exaclty sure if they count as kinetic meaning there doing something youd defintatly get a bronze pulse when it snaps someone or some one draws them in though although back to the high storm doesnt really seem to be much of a point to try and detect it with bronze its like trying to find a hurricane with a flash light in the dark youd defintly notice would be usueful to find out if its invested i suppose maybe could detect it a day or a few early depending on the allomancers range

I would not want to be burning bronze in the middle of a highstorm.
