"Patji is a Shard of Adonalsium."

https://wob.coppermind.net/events/256-oathbringer-london-signing/#e8606

I saw this while reading WoBs, and attempted to add this. However, I couldn't figure out how the references work. Could someone more experienced add this as an eleventh known Shard?

Patji is an avatar of Autonomy, not a new Shard. --Jofwu (talk) 19:27, 26 April 2018 (MST)




Someone ought to add Harmony to the list of shards.

  • My understanding was that Sazed held Ruin and Preservation, and wasn't able to unite them due to their opposed nature. Thus Harmony is just a nickname for Sazed-as-Ruin-and-Preservation, not an actual united shard. --198.41.238.101 13:33, 16 August 2015 (MDT)

-He describes mingling them in HoA and all creatures on Scadrial are mingling so it is likely that they have been mixed into harmony



The sixth reference supposedly supports assertions about another shard being revealed (dominion). But the linked interview doesn't mention shards or dominion anywhere.



Splinters and Spren: Didn't we have WoB at one stage that Spren are Splinters of Honour? They're currently not listed in this section, so I'll try to hunt down the relevant interview, assuming it wasn't pre 17th shard and unarchived. --198.41.238.101 13:33, 16 August 2015 (MDT)

"Ruin and Preservation can both whisper into the minds of humans."[edit]

According to SoS, only Ruin can whisper. Preservation can only read mind.


Do the Patternspren get a shard? Could that explain epigraph 11 in Way of Kings?


The article's suggestion that Domi is short for Dominion seems implausible, as Domi matches Devotion much more closely. (Jaddeth, on the other hand, is presumably based on Dominion.) Furthermore, it is explicit in the list of Aons that Domi comes from Aon Omi, meaning love.

Yeah I just removed that line. That's just plain wrong, and never should have been added.--WeiryWriter (talk) 19:31, 17 December 2016 (MST)

Is Trell a Shard?



The divine Breath that Returned hold ... and the Aon within a Seon ... are the only confirmed Splinters" - aren't spren also splinters of honor?

Threnody[edit]

According to WoB, Threnody doesn't have a shard. So why is Ambition shown to be on Threnody?

Take a look: http://www.theoryland.com/intvsresults.php?kw=threnody

  • Ambition has been dead for a long time, so "world" should probably be N/A rather than Threnody. But I imagine that Threnody is listed because that's where Ambition fought Odium, and chunks of Ambition's power were ripped off and have probably had lasting effects on Threnody, and might still be lingering? --Shroom (talk) 18:37, 4 November 2017 (MST)
