Brandon Sanderson / Re: Mistborn: Allomancy or Feruchemy? [ SPOILER ]
« on: November 17, 2008, 03:10:35 AM »
the answer for me would be allomancy, assuming we're talking mistborn and not just a misting. feruchemy is seriously awesome and has its own things.... but it has drawbacks too. for one, you have to spend so much time storing atributes where in allomancy you just take it from somewhere else. plus.. you eat metal. thats awesome.
feruchemists cant really go 'flying' about cities the way allomancers do, what with steel pushing and iron pulling and so on.
feruchemists tinminds do not help their vision with darkness as much as tin does for allomancers.
and then theres atium.
all in all being an allomancer would just be more fun.

Well if you think about it where would you get all that metal? I mean if we are talking about in their world it might be helpfull then then if not you'd have to go looking for it every single time you need more.  Well I think feruchemists can fly around sort (more like old chinese style movies with the tree jumping).(plus they could totally be ninja lol). All they have to do is store weight and use some of their pewter mind to get the leap started then mid jump store more pewter. You don't lose any strength an gain weight for later use (imagines a 10 ton fall on a mistborn trying to steel push him back up hehehe). Actually feruchemists can use their metalminds at any setting. Mistborn have only 3 on, off and flare. So technically they can have better vision and senses than even a tin savant but only for a short period of time =]. Aw comon atium you had to pull that one out. Well a emptying out of a steelmind in 1 second could beat that hehe. how are you going to dodge or fight back when you can't move fast enough muahahah! Well i guess eating metal would be kinda cool....
It seems this post was totally useless.

Am I the only one who wanted to see more feruchemy? But anyway I vote for the master of push and pull!

It is specifically stated that the feruchemist can dump it all at once. and even if burning is instantaneous, if I've stored enough speed, I can have that knife in your neck before the thought processes have even registered what's going to happen and told your body to move.

and, hooray for you for pushing a coin against the thing thrown at you. If it's heavier than you, you're just going to push yourself away.

As for hanging up in the air, a) your atium won't last forever, either, and assuming I'll be using up my resources while I cant' reach you is foolish. b) I can find what metal you're pushing on and move it, probably causing you to crash into things. "Oh, you're pushing on this nail? How about I rip it out with stored strength and toss it over there so you go flying in that other direction."

Allomancers can do quite a lot, but trust me, even when they do stand up to a feruchemist, it won't be nearly so one-sided as you seem to think.
Imagine what would happen if they stored up weight while they tapped speed! Oh I sense supersonic afterimages and ninja like death strikes! Add a little bit of pewter and you have a tank!

oh this ones easy. If it were real life or in the book I would choose feruchemy. The reasons are very simple. Its better ha ha XD lol just kidding. But I do have some points I can make that feruchemy wouldn't totally be useless.

1. You don't need to get more of that metal(with correct percentages of alloys and what not)
2. You can store attributes and use them as a boost and can vary the intensity that you use the attribute and how long it lasts for.

Basically its easier to get a hold of you don't need to always get more metals and constantly wonder if your gonna burn out. The 2nd point I made is why I really think Sazed was being fairly stupid in his way of using feruchemy. I see so many possibilities.  For example since we know that feruchemy lets you store attributes and use them however we want I can just imagine a person using it to fly around light as a feather for a minute or so then in 1 second use it all to fall on one person with all they weight used in a single blow. I find that amusing since if you can waste it all in one go the weight of your fall will be multiplied. why not store pewter make yourself light by storing weight than jump and fall down on them while tapping into strength and weight at the same time.  I think there is a lot to be explored in feruchemy battles XD as we know Sazed is a scholar not a fighter. Just imagine what a fighter could do.
