    Hm.. now that I think of it most of mine are after Shadow Rising.

    But..
    Rand meets Morgase & Elaida. That was exciting. Elaida rocks.
    Moiraine's first visit with Siuan in The Great Hunt. Everything with Siuan in the Great Hunt.
    Siuan's meeting with the girls when they return to Tar Valon in Dragon Reborn. Perrin walking in on Moiraine nekkid.
    Moiraine & Thom's chat in the Shadow Rising.


    K, what are yours? I tried to pick more obscurish ones that aren't usually picked. (Except maybe the first one). And try to pick one from each book.

    my favorite scenes are all the ones that are usually picked: LTT's suicide, rand meets siuan, rand fights ishy in the sky, mat enters the doorway in the stone, perrin and faile banter in tdr, perrin returns home...

    for some more obscue ones, min talks with gawyn and galad - the yellow sparrows scene, rand learns about his mother :) , mat enters the stone. btw, if you've never seen the wot stick figure art of that scene, check it out. too funny.

    I like the Shadow Killer bit in the Great Hunt. I also liked Perrin and the Wolves fighting Trollocs at the begining of The Dragon Reborn. That's just a couple. There are so many.

    Rand killing the Trollocs and Fade's in the Stone was awesome too.

    Thats my favourite, as I can remember. After I read it I immediately thought the scene where he is trying to heal the dead child would be amazingly powerful if WoT was ever made a movie.

    Mat kicking Galad around was great too. Also when Rand fights the Seanchan blademaster in TGH.

    My favourites are:
    Rand falls into the garden and meets Elayne and Gawyn, The fight with the two forsaken at the end of EoTW, Nyneave's Testing in TGH, Ingtar's last stand in TGH, When Mat rescues Egwene and Nyneave in the Stone of Tear in TDR, Perrin saves Faile in TDR, (In fact I liked the whole end of TDR when they are all in Tear), Rand fights his reflections in TSR, Rand fighting the shadowspawn in the Stone in TSR, and the battle for Emond's Feild in TSR...

    :D

    Hmm. I remember liking a particular scene in EotW where Mat and Rand are running from Darkfriends I believe, and Rand accidentally channels lightening to save them. It's been a while since I read Eye of the World, so I might be off a bit. But I remember liking it nonetheless:p

    Yea, that's when they were cornered in that supply room and lightning struck the inn right? At the time I didn't realize he had channeled.

    i didn't either. i didn't realize he'd been channeling until the end. the story went in a direction i wasn't expecting (the whole dragon thing). totally didn't see that coming :O

    I never expected the Dragon Reborn thing either. However, i was in a book store one day (whilst i was in the midst of reading EoTW) and i follishly read the back and the first line read something akin to "Rand al'Thor, The Dragon Reborn...." i couldn't believe it ! In retrospect its pretty obvious.

    I also did this with another spoiler *i wont say it for those who dont know* ive really gotta stop doing that....

    a spoiler that was on the back of a book, or a spoiler you just happened to find out about?

    It was on the back of the book, it was about a certain half of the one power.....
