    Based on what we know currently about the ten heartbeats, why does Szeth require ten heartbeats to bring forth his Honorblade?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Perception is a very important part of how these things all work, and remember, the Honorblades work differently from everything else. Everything was based upon them. Why donít you read and find out whatís going on there, but remember, the charactersí perception is very important.

    So then thatís why at one point Shallan requires ten heartbeats and now she doesnít.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Right, just like—itís the exact same reason why Kaladinís forehead wounds donít heal, because he views himself as need—as having those, somewhere deep inside of him, and that canít heal until that goes away. And itís the same reason why in Warbreaker, when you bring something to life your intention, rather than really what you say, is what matters. Itís all about perception.

    "I will put the law before all else."

    Hope everyone else had a great time. Unfortunately I showed up too late to meet anyone.
