Oh well then I agree with you Sidious Send a noteboard - 26/01/2016 08:50:55 AM

Berowin directly says in her quote that her secret is practice. She's probably good with Spirit but she's clearly a woman who has spent decades playing with this weave and making it more efficient. It's possible that many different shields are possible. I don't think anyone, including the Forsaken, have taken the time to practice shielding to that degree but they do perhaps know of ways to weave stronger lattices that exceed Aes Sedai shields. We know from Elayne that practicing with Air made her very powerful with it, and Leane/Suian learned to work more efficiently with less saidar. Demandred said that he's had so much time to study war and dueling that no mortal man can match him, so there's a general theme of practice making perfect. It likely extends to the Power too.

Berowin probably found something new... A soft shield that bends. I suspect the standard weave is like a net made of rope and that perhaps some AOL individuals know how to weave shields made of metal wire. This is why Osan'gar says he can get around any shield.... The knot is where the flaw lies.

I think your theory is original and explains many shielding dilemmas in the series.

Or we can choose to assume Elayne is incorrect - 11/01/2016 03:50:14 PM 909 Views

random thought on Shielding - 19/01/2016 07:34:20 PM 903 Views
You're forgetting the other side, though. - 19/01/2016 08:19:59 PM 965 Views
yes but it doesn't proactively do this - 19/01/2016 10:06:25 PM 839 Views
Responding to a shield doesn't require proactiveness - 20/01/2016 05:53:24 AM 726 Views
it's a visualization thing really - 20/01/2016 04:39:08 PM 775 Views
Not the crux of the debate... - 21/01/2016 03:37:40 AM 856 Views
Not really though - 21/01/2016 05:00:34 PM 630 Views
I always explained it as - 21/01/2016 09:26:35 PM 851 Views
There's not much to go on since all the shields except Berowyn's are the same - 21/01/2016 09:55:14 PM 737 Views
That's precisely my point - 21/01/2016 10:09:02 PM 872 Views
now you are speculating based on a lack of evidence - 21/01/2016 10:39:13 PM 710 Views
There's actual evidence: - 22/01/2016 06:25:25 AM 891 Views
what's dense here is that you keep putting in quotes that don't support your position - 22/01/2016 03:28:16 PM 1000 Views
Whoa.. - 22/01/2016 04:24:19 PM 962 Views

yup that's my argument. that and you're a dick so I'm done with this - 22/01/2016 06:46:23 PM 708 Views

Hmmm.... - 23/01/2016 03:06:15 PM 908 Views
Let me clear this up - 25/01/2016 04:19:51 PM 1087 Views

thanks - 26/01/2016 04:26:46 PM 1098 Views
Yes, but that's not what I'm arguing... - 16/01/2016 08:56:15 AM 672 Views
But additive doesn't explain buffers and being able to overdraw - 16/01/2016 03:02:33 PM 721 Views
Don't those two facts explain each other? - 16/01/2016 03:24:44 PM 752 Views
It actually seems counterintuitive to me - 19/01/2016 07:15:37 PM 711 Views

agree to disagree I suppose ... I don't see it this way *NM* - 20/01/2016 04:41:16 PM 431 Views
I didn't sense disagreement so much as confusion over my position. *NM* - 21/01/2016 12:01:16 AM 411 Views
