**** Generally speaking, though, most wounds won't be debilitating. Broken arm, maybe, but if it's not entirely shattered, it can still work, and without the pain, they wouldn't notice. Generally, in a fight like we see, the majority of wounds are non-debilitating lethals. Stab wounds to the chest/slashes to the torso. Things that are almost certainly fatal given the era, but not damaging enough to stop an enemy who doesn't feel the pain/is rendered completely insane.

***However, The Illiad had reasons for their characters to do such badass feats, such as being a demi-god. Roran on the other hand, has no excuse. Humans in the the Inheritance Cycle are presented as the weakest race in this series by a mile. Just because it is fantasy, doesn't automatically ascribe that convention. I get the feeling that the author sort of prides himself on his series being a bit logical and realistic. Even when it's the not, there's nothing logical or realistic about what Roran does.

*** Oromis stated that he was born "several centuries ago," and that Glaedr hatched when Oromis was twenty, so he's definitely much older than two hundred years. As for Saphira, she was explicitly stated to be "barely eight months old," right before she met Glaedr for the first time, but she's been in her egg for at least a century (as Galbatorix looted it during his conquest of the Riders).

*** Except that Roran's wounds were slightly healed with magic. As Roran was going to lead an attack, they had to make sure that his wounds were healed enough so as to not cause any problems in the attack.

*** No, the person above is dismembering what actually happened. Arya wasn't heading to find Brom. She was escorting Saphira's egg for the Varden. When she wasn't going to escape from Durza, it was only then that she magically tried to teleport the egg to Brom. I don't see why the Eldunarya in the vault couldn't make her trust these visions. The original point still stand from whoever wrote it.

When she wasn't going to escape from Durza, it was only then that she magically tried to teleport the egg to Brom. Then the Eldunarya redirected it to Eragon. I don't see why the Eldunarya in the vault couldn't make her have made Arya trust these visions.visions that could lead her to Eragon or warn of the ambush of Durza. The original point still stand from whoever wrote it.

****Expect there's no evidence to support any kind of conclusion that he'd be at any risk himself so the point still stands.

**** Possibly, due to risk. He knows that Oromis and Glaedir are debilitated, and therefore less of a threat. Possibly, by acting through another entity, it puts him at risk of being impacted by another mage, whether directly or indirectly. Against whole and powerful enemies, it could be too great of a risk.

** There are many magical swords in this universe (most of which Galbatorix collected from the dead Riders). It wouldn't really be that odd if Durza had a cursed one.
