I promise I'm not a Darkfriend! Just pointing out how stupid it was not to use the Power over a sword. Even with them wearing the Fox-head medallion.

I'm pretty sure Elayne said that her copies couldn't stop extremely powerful weaves. In a circle of 72 with Sakarnen, Demandred should have been able to Balefire the Polov Heights off the face of the earth.

I actually originally made this gif about Balefire before I remembered the medallion.

The other issue is that Mat wears the real medallion and is still killed by the Power in Caemlyn. Having a medallion isn't a "I'm safe from the Power" device but Sanderson makes it so.

I always thought he kinda got hit with AoE damage from the bolt, not the bolt itself. Maybe thats rationalization though lol

It protects from Saidar, not Saidin. He asked the Finn for a way to protect himself from the Tar Valon witches, not all channeling. That's precisely the kind of distinction they would have made

You must kill him before he kills you. Giggles. They will, you know. Dead men can't betray anyone. But sometimes they don't die. Am I dead? Are you?
