I bet Sazed rediscovers the Terris religion!  Or perhaps a true religion of sorts, and during all this discovring, he uncovers more prophecies, and finds out he is the hero of ages!  Duh Duh Duuuuuuuuuuhh
He probably will finish figuring out the Terris religion.  And I REALLY want him to be the Hero.

I'm still upset that Elend will be more powerful than Vin...
I mean, I like Elend fine, but I really liked how Vin was just... made of awesome.
I don't know, maybe I'm too biased. I like Vin far too much as a character.

That was random.  But Vin will always have experience on her side.

True.  Besides, there is no guarantee that Elend will be more powerful than Vin.  It is possible that they could be equal, as Vin's power is so rare, it might just be comparable to the first Allomancers.
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

Since it's speculation, it's a bit early to get upset.

Also Vin seems to have some other advantages.  Speculated Hemalurgy (piercing copperclouds)?  Burning the mists?  I suspect she will remain an interesting character in her own right through the end of HoA.

i dont only suspect she will remain an interesting character im almost posative. although this story involves the fate of the entire world it all started with Vin and it was always centered on her. it would be an upsetting move if in the final chapter all of the sudden Vin was no longer the focal point. that is unless she died and if that happened then i guess i would understand another character taking her place

I don't think that she will die.  I think it will just make a MAJOR shift towards her Hemalurgic abilities and her discovering those and attempting to expand them.

Wow. Now, I really don't frequent forums that often, but, dang! This is a lot of crazy theorizing (thats a word, right?)!
  Anyhow, I agree that Sazed had ought to find SOMETHING. The role belief has played in Sazed's character as well as the entire Mistborn series, thus far, is too cool to just toss out and say "I don't believe things anymore." But, well even if he doesn't, Brandon will just write the book so well that it doesn't really matter, anyhow.

As a side note: When you are correcting someone about their annoying grammar and punctuation, you might think about the 11 million American males who find it very difficult to read what you posted because they suffer from Protanopia. :P

At the signing in Denver today Brandon said he's going to release the first chapter on his website soon.  He also plans on adding a few more after that.

In the end (if I remember correctly) he said there will be 4 chapters on his site, which will show all the major viewpoints except one.

I think Vin will still be more powerful than Elend, there's something special about her allomancy, beyond piercing copper clouds and duralumin.  For example, her extreme subtely with soothing, how quickly she learned allomancy (Kelsier himself thinks it's odd), there's also how she can nearly match Kelsier in a pushing match, after a month of training when she weighs way less than him.

Quote from: Kelsier - Mistborn:The Final Empire page 573
“But you can’t kill me, Lord Tyrant. I
represent that thing you’ve never been able to kill, no matter
how hard you try. I am hope.”

According to that quote from the book, "Thinks" is the right word.
And Kelsier's alive and in a better place now.
I came because I heard stories, tales of a lengendary man.
A man who was known as the Lord of the Mists, a man they named Survivor.
A man called Hope.
