Well its gotta be between Teclis, Kairos and Kroak... personally I would say Kroak for killing tens of thousands of daemons at a time, standing alone aginst 8 bloodthirsters (something like that) and then exploding in a final piece of defiance... and still not being dead and gone. Very impressive.

Game wise Teclis may be up there, but fluffwise I'd have to say he wouldn't be a major contender to Kairos or Kroak. Nagash would be up there as well, he basically obliterated an entire nation with one spell...

Teclic would be the most powerful 'living' Wizard though, as the other three are all effectively all spirits.

Teclis did nigh on win the battle of funival plain, he just doesn't like using magic in the same way as a LoC, unless its a desperate situation. He also founded the imperial colleges of magic. he get my vote.

Thanquol couldn't go toe to toe with alot of the powerful mages, hes just dubious and sneeky

yeah i figured just a curious thought that popped in my head. But Nagash and Kroak get my vote both being able to cast one spell that would cause huge earthquakes or able to take out. whole nations. but a lord of change would be pretty high up there too

Caledor Dragontamer. Forged the ''pact'' between Elves and Dragons, gifting the Elven Race with arguably the most fearsome tools of slaughter, of all time. Also teaching the Elves the way to use magic offensively, and defying Aenarion to conjure and cement the Vortex upon the Isle of the Dead, trapping -or drawing in- massive quantities of raw magic and preventing the Ruinous Powers free will over the mortal plane. In essense, this guy ''saved the world'' despite the horrendous cliche.

He`s not -technically- dead; but my vote for a still-living wizard would be Morathi. She created the Lore of Dark Magic, and has perfected it from her several-thousand year banishment from Ulthuan. Even Malekith is regarded as he inferior in terms of the magical art and I`m sure she would be able to slay Teclis in a sorcerous duel.

For a living wizard I would probably have to go with Teclis. Now if you were to argue about all, even dead/spirits, my vote would go to lord Kroak. He was the first Slaan ever spawned, he tought the High Elves Magic, basically killed a whole daemon army with one spell, went toe to toe with 7(?) Bloodthristers and then refused to die even when his body had been ripped apart! That's pretty amazing.

Most powerful living wizard? Got to be Lord Mazdamundi, he's the most powerful living Slaan- he essentially destroyed the Dwarf Empire by causing numerous massive earth quakes in the Worlds Edge Mountains, what makes it even more impressive is that that was just a byproduct of his geomancy not the aim.

The fey enchantress... none of us know she's doing, but she has a whole nation under her thumb and a couple of hundred young wizards kept god knows where.....

I dont think she has really been called on to let loose so I'm going to keep with Brettonian loyalty

Taking my head out of the clouds, gotta be a slann, they are beyond compare in terms of magic. Thus i agree with baron

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig
