Jumping in, just because. What requires channeling big time in TAR?

You can dominate in TAR w/o channelling. You can turn people into babies, physically or mentally. I wonder if you simply...

I don't think Shara followers the normal statistical patterns. In normal areas, channelling has been culled, leading to a smaller number of channelers, and possibly weaker ones.

In Shara, there...
