It’s not a Legends adaptation. It’s his version of it, that will feature characters and plot lines from The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, probably Bad Batch, and maybe Skeleton Crew. It’s his “Mandoverse movie” he was said to have.

These don’t definitively say he’s the “most skilled”, but it’s obvious he and Yoda are 1 and 2.

@agent41: That’s perfectly fine, I don’t mind at all. Hopefully I’ll find the motivation to come back and not only catch up on reading but updating this as well.

Boba has more h2h feats and just overall displays, but a brute like Paz might be hard to put down. But Paz doesn’t have the strength feats of someone like Krrsantan.

All gear though Boba beats him.

He can beat any of them individually I would say, but 3v1 just outnumbers him.

It’s the same argument as the YouTube shorts retelling it, as in: doesn’t happen in the movie.

@cheth:

Well while I agree that he has lots of creative uses of magic, and that Eragon is really powerful, the issue I have with this is that all of this needs to be able to have effect against WHF mages. And while I won't go into a NLF by saying warhammer caster shields can block anything whatsoever, unlike casters from Eragon's world their wards are all-round defences: they don't have to state what the ward has to defend them from (though doing so often increases their potency), they simply protect them.

I have no idea how wards work in the WH verse or how they're applied/how powerful they are, but is it just anything related to magic will get blocked? Like if Eragon throws a fireball or uses a fire arrow/explosive arrow against them, I'm assuming that would get blocked by the shields/wards, but what if his magic is intended to affect them directly? Like this instance here where he breaks the calves of twenty Urgals?

Eragon raised his palm, shouting, "Jierda theirra kalfis!" Sharp cracks resounded off the cliff. Twenty of the charging Urgals fell into Kostha-merna, howling and clutching their legs where shards of bone protruded.

Source: Eragon

Or how would a spell like this interact with the wards/shields in WH? Eragon was fighting against people who had wards set up against his magic, so he used a spell to "get around" it and affect them:

He quickly readied a spell Murtagh had once used on him: "Thrysta vindr!" It was a roundabout way of striking at the men, as he was not actually hitting them but rather pushing the air against them. In any case, it worked.

A howl of wind filled the chamber, clawing at Eragon's hair and cloak and sending the men closest to him flying back into their compatriots, clearing a space of ten feet in front of him.

Then there's the matter of dispelling; warhammer mages can counter abilities from affecting them by dispelling them, or even prevent them from ever being cast in the first place (The Crown of Sorcery is particularily adept at this).

I'm not sure how "preventing them from ever being cast in the first place" would affect a magic system like the Ancient Langauge. The other user already gave a breakdown of how it works, but it's sort of like a contract. What you say in that language is almost binding, and although the user's intent is a very important aspect of how the spell operates, I don't think there's ever been a time when something was said, a spell was prepared/wanting to be used, and nothing happened.

The bigger issue I see is this; if life drain is something nearly unblockable in the Eragon verse, whats to prevent Mannfred, Egrimm and Azhag from doing it to him.

I'm not sure if its something that's nearly unblockable, but I also haven't gone through and read the books in years. Unless it was just something so easy to set up a ward for that Murtagh or any of the magic using adversaries never bothered or tried to use it, and vice versa for Eragon (although he usually dislikes using it for moral reasons).

Weirdly enough, though, I don't think I saw Telepathy being brought up in this thread yet. Do these guys have any counter/defense to it? It's a pretty big thing for Eragon and magic users in the verse in general.

@wolfrazer Added your Logray RT.

@dreamer016 Added your Kharys and Weequay Jedi's RT here. Just let me know if you would like it removed, though.
