First, I'll say it's impressive that you guys managed to fill out HALF THE THREAD with one discussion (Meant as a compliment). But to be honest, you're both making assumption that I do think seem plausible, but technically have no evidence in the game to back them up (except when you quote cutscenes). We can't really be sure of this until a dev tells us more, which might not happen at all. So could you please, and I'm not trying to offend you in any way, add some "IMO"'s to your discussions? Because I think it would be so much more pleasant to discuss things if you don't have to get mad at each other for making assumptions. Again, I'm not trying to make demands or anything, just making a request because that would make it more pleasant for me to read your discussions, that I always find very interesting.
Now for my own addition to this discussion, I personally think that the "1000 times stronger" comment from Warlic was an exaggeration. If Xan had really been 1000 times stronger, I think that would make him practically invincible, and he wasn't IMO.
And about the Drakonnan>Xan thing, you have to remember that the Hero had already been empowered by 5 of the orbs, meaning that he already had more than half of his empowerment. AND he had the Ice Katana. He also lost against Akriloth at first, even with his titan dragon, and when he got the Frozen Claymore, he won WITHOUT his dragon. If this is any indication of it's power, and the Ice Katana has any kind of similar power, then it would give him a HUGE advantage. And Cysero, Warlic, Artix and Zorbak were there too, don't know if they helped him, Zorbak probably didn't but the other two could have.
Lastly, I have to agree with Greyor, I really don't think that Xan made the Pyronomicon. There is no evidence of it, and I think Xan would have bragged about it if he made it himself. But I also agree with Dragonmonster on the fact that the Pyronomicon having some sort of raw power.
<Character>: XAN! Did he... is he...?
Warlic: I don't think so. But you beat him, and we've got the Pyronomicon.
Warlic: It's too powerful to destroy, but it's too dangerous to keep in my tower. I think I know the right place to keep it hidden...
Warlic: ...and who knows, maybe Xan was right. Maybe it is powerful enough to free Jaania.
Warlic: The important thing is that it is out of the hands of that madman. I can't believe that you were strong enough to defeat Xan on your own.
Warlic: You saved Lymcrest, my friend, and you saved me. Thank you <Character>, I am forever in your debt.
Maybe the most powerful magic described in it somehow gave it that power? I'm honestly not sure, but that's my personal opinion.
@Below Thank you, sounds good to me!
