Minor edit to Hemalurgy page

3 posts in this topic

Hey,

I just made an account on here and on the Coppermind, and I made a minor edit to the Hemalurgy page that I just wanted to get confirmation on.

The text I changed said 'Ruin crafted Hemalurgy with a flaw', as far as my understanding goes this is incorrect, as the metallic arts were not created by Ruin or Preservation. I copied the text from the Allomancy page that referenced this for clarity. This I was sure about.

What I wasn't 100% on, was whether we knew that the flaw was inherent to Hemalurgy or whether Ruin had altered Hemalurgy to create the flaw. Given that we know Preservation could alter Allomancy, in my mind it makes sense that Ruin would also have been able to if he desired. Though I personally think it makes more sense, given the nature of Hemalurgy, that this flaw was inherent to it.

I guess it's ultimately fairly inconsequential, but I wondered if anyone knew of a specific WoB or other reference that could clear this up one way or the other.

Hey! Apologies that no one has been able to get back to you yet. 

I had a look at your edit and it looks good. When I double checked with someone, they indicated that it's hasn't been confirmed if Ruin deliberately crafted Hemalurgy with a flaw, though they themselves didn't think he created it. I think the ambiguous wording you changed it to is a good way to phrase that section to avoid having to address the question directly (and hopefully Brandon clarifies one day). 

Thanks for your help, it's very much appreciated. :)

Aha no worries, thanks for responding. Even though it was a very minor change it felt good to contribute something for a change, instead of just spending hours upon hours consuming the coppermind :P
