Shardcast: The Lord Ruler (Mechanics and Powers)


After a short break on Shardcast last week due to sickness, we're back discussing the Lord Ruler, and this time its for PedantiCast action with his mechanics, powers, and abilities. And his powerset is absolutely ridiculous! We talk about Investiture, nicrosilminds, Hemalurgic unicorns... it's everything you want. Maybe. 

We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Ben (Overlord Jebus)

@Chaos @WeiryWriter is it possible that TLR's Spirit Web cracked from momentarily holding the sliver of a Shard's power? Rapidly inflating and deflating causing a crack that allowed Ruin to antagonize him? Or he's going insane from just being alive so long, lol.

I didn’t hear the exact quote about the Lord Ruler and hemalurgy being what made his most dramatic effects, but is it possible it didn’t mean effects from him, but his literal creations of 2 different species from humans? Changing all feruchemists into mistwraiths which then are hemalurgically changed into Kandra is a pretty dramatic effect.

Hmm, for some reason I always thought the Allomantic Grenade had a Nicrosil core, supporting the theory that Nicrosil could store a single Allomantic power. But apparently that's just Ettmetal?

I do like the theory that Feruchemical Nicrosil can stores a single Allomantic power (as Investiture) and then you can burn that to get a supercharge of the stored power.
