@Shiny_Underpants I'm not sure I understand what you mean, I was listing reasons as to why they couldn't have done something like that, which I think was because only skillful mages could do it, and they needed to concentrate on the light shield at the same time. We don't know what would be required in order to constantly transfer mana to a focus stone. Again, the five most skilled mages might have been the only ones able to do it, and if Cysero or one of the others had to do that, we would've been short one powerful mage.
As for the mana core, we were not talking about infinite POWER, but an infinite amount of expendable mana. I think it must either create mana constantly or be an infinite pool of mana, as it doesn't seem to have some sort of battery like time limit. I've already said that I think it's creating mana constantly, but as I've already said, it's just specalation. We haven't seen anything in game that implies or confirms either of our viewpoints in that matter.
@Above Who said Cysero is even ABLE to do all those things? The greatest testaments of his magical power so far have been transforming the Guardian Tower into a fish, controlling titan sized monsters and doing those "you have too much health" spells in our fight with his titan chickencow. There id NO indication that he'd be able to do anything like transform Wargoth blew the crust off a planet. Caitiff made our dragon bigger and stronger than ever and covered the whole continent in darkness. Cysero id probably nowhere near as powerful as them, and he doesn't even specialize in fighting.
As for the nitroglycerin thing, the effects of all those nitroglycerin explosions are probably highly exaggerated, as otherwise all life on the planet would be gone now. AND they only kill one monster each. AND he hadn't invented the nitroglycerin sponge yet when we fought Akriloth.
And lastly, the time travel things. Yes, he could probably do that, and the Hero doesn't know about the whole weaving saga paradox, but I'm pretty sure he does know by now that time travel in itself ALWAYS causes paradoxes of you consciously change the past. For instance, if they went back in time and prevented Warlic from overloading, the world would look so different today, Jaania would still be frozen and the Rose would never have been formed. Then the Hero would have never learned about the clawkin, dravir and fairies. And most importantly, Warlic wouldn't have overloaded, and there would've been no reason to go back and prevent it. Would he then have overloaded or not?
Seriously, I just don't get why you always seem to try to make the Hero seem egoistic and apathetic. Her clearly DOES care about Lore and it's people, and would always do what it takes to save them, just not risk causing complete chaos with a time paradox.
