Mesaana has had an easy time so far, but hopefully she'll be a bit more curtailed now. Its a hope. Maybe Suian will discover the horn gone and they'll finally realize they need to ward the loot.
But that's the whole point! Robert Jordan made the Aes Sedai that way on purpose. The Age of Legends Aes Sedai aren't just arrogant, they're right in saying that the Aes Sedai of the current Age don't know nearly as much as they think they do. In a way, it's another take on the theme of stories and legends versus the actual people they are based on that is present in all the rest of the books.

As for why the Aes Sedai didn't grab any of the items in the cache, think about it: the Tower was fragmented, and it's quite clear that each individual was focused on self preservation and not protecting the Tower. That's why Egwene was the savior. Not only did she unite the future of the Tower together to save it, she was the only person thinking of uniting with others to achieve a common goal. And that's why she was raised to the Seat.

Yes, I think they were all too busy worrying about their own necks rather than saving the Tower.

But, speaking of loot, whatever happened to Kadere's wagons? They were full of ter'angreal from Rhuidean. Did they ever arrive in TV? I don't remember ever hearing about them again and can't find any more about them unless I'm overlooking it.

Don't quote me on this (Its not 100%) but I believe they never actually left Cairhien (per an RJ interview) and that Rand actually put them in a safe place. Remember that the Seals were part of that group and Rand hung onto them.

I don't have the quote on me though so I can't verify it without a lot of searching (something I don't have time for at work).

Perhaps they are all stored in Hinderstap?

Would be really something for Mat, to go to the middle of nowhere, and stumble straight into Rand's "ter'angreal gone wild" collection.

TOR Questions of the Week, February 2005-July 2005

Week 3 Question: After Moiraine fought Lanfear in Cairhien, what happened to the wagons full of ter'angreal and such that came out of the Aiel Waste? Are they just in some storeroom there? And what happened to Moiraine's horse Aldieb?

Robert Jordan Answers: The ter'angreal and so forth that came from Rhuidean are still in Cairhien for the moment, warded by Rand so they aren't accessible to anyone but him. Aldieb is in the stables at the Sun Palace.
