    Raist for sure. Some of them I don't know. As far as the Dragon Reborn goes, I am only on book two so it wouldn't be fair to say that.

    Not sure about Raistlin, but I go with Gandalf for his default near-god status, Telamon for for his powers and Belgarath for his wisdom...

    How about Rincewind? :D

    Nah, just kidding, but power isn't always anything: it also has to do with when to use it. So in terms of sheer power, I'll have to vote Pug or Rand, but for me, Gandalf's gonna remain the best for me.

    I have to agree with you... Gandalf definitely has wisdom, power and control. And yeah, Rincewind's a joke. The only use he has is humor relief, which IMO, really makes me laugh... still remember the Interesting Times novel in the Discworld series... :D

    Pug/milamber for sure,

    Don't know much about a lot of these guys, but Gandalf doesn't even come close to pug. You Gandalf fiends are dreamin.

    I picked Raistlin and Gandalf, mostly because i enjoy LOTR so much. But if i really had to decide i'd say Raistlin.

    Gandalf gets my vote because part of being a powerful wizard IMO is the wisdom of knowing where and when to use magic and the effects that he has which he shows in the books. Combined with his power although he dosent use it as much as the other wizards he is the most powerful wizard IMO.

    Raistlin is the most powerful anything in anywhere.

    Either Raistlin or Elminster, whom you failed to mention as an option.

    I voted for the Dragon, but largely because of the quantity of magic in the WOT. Comparing high-magic worlds like WOT to low-magic worlds like LoTR is like comparing apples to oranges.

    I think he's evenly matched with Elminster.

    Lawl I don't think so. Raistlin nearly became a god. Elminster imo don't even come close. :S

    You obviously don't know who Elminster sleeps with then. And nearly becoming a god =/= God.

    Elminster has not shown the full extent of his powers, not to mention he has many more years of experience over Raistlin (sure he stole Fistandantilus knowledge, but it wasn't acquired through 1st exp). Him seeing his future if he had become a God shows that he is blinded by his own ambitions implying that he can be blind-sided. Not to mention Godhood is kind of irrelevant if you can be killed anyway.

    Theoretically any god in any series could be killed, it would just take a considerable amount of power, for instance, the amount of power Raistlin ended up getting.

    I wonder...If Gandalf was so powerful, why wasn't he MORE involved with actual fighting in the final battle?
