* Harmony [[spoiler:abandoning the South to the Ice Death]] seems unusually callous of him, but it makes sense. As he, Vin, and the Lord Ruler discover, the power of a god does not come with [[HowDoIShotWeb an instruction manual]] for how to ''safely'' use said power; Sazed restored the world to its last stable state, with small additions like the Marewill flowers and the ridiculously fertile Basin. [[spoiler:Fixing the South would either require altering the climate or moving the whole continent to a warmer latitude, which might have global consequences that he might not foresee. Besides, the same way he helped by sending Wax, he could have helped by sending Kelsier]].

to:

* When Wayne puts up a speed bubble right as the dynamite blows off, the heroes can still have a conversation without [[AcousticLicense being deafened by the explosion]]. If speed bubbles stop incoming light from accelerating/decelerating into microwaves, it can probably stop pressure waves like sound.

Added DiffLines:

** The mistress section is also an implicit way of telling Wax that [[UnderstandingBoyfriend she's fine with whatever he does]] as long as he fulfils his obligations.



to:

* Wax and his ancestor Breeze are incredibly different, to the point where Wax thinks he'd punch Breeze's guilty-looking face if they ever met. Even though it doesn't come up, he's actually closer to the Cett side of the family than he would care to admit. Like Ashweather, he's deliberately provocative and rude with the upper class. Like Allrianne, he ran away from home and pursues justice in his own way.

to:

* In ''Allomancer Jak'', the WorthlessTreasureTwist is subverted when it turns out that the Hemalurgic spikes were in an expensive aluminum chest, which makes Jak rich. Aluminum can stop Hemalurgic spikes from losing their charge, which raises all sorts of questions on who knew so much about Hemalurgy to hide the Survivor's Treasure...

Added DiffLines:

* Wayne claims that he doesn't have a sense of smell. Bendalloy is an alloy of cadmium, and cadmium poisoning can take away the sense of smell. It's possible that he's slowly being poisoned by the metals he's not burning, or he's been taking bad alloys that he can't burn.

to:

* In retrospect, it's obvious that the Set's plot regarding breeding an army of Allomancers is being masterminded by [[spoiler:Telsin and Trell]]. The entire plan would take nearly two decades at minimum to produce the first useful Allomancers, and [[spoiler:Edwarn]] is far too old to see any real fruits from the project. However, someone significantly younger, and [[spoiler:an immortal god]] would be much more likely to profit from a project to breed new Allomancers, simply because they'd be alive to see them reach maturity.


* People wear earrings while praying to Harmony. When Wax prays to Harmony, he feels like he is detecting a faint response (and eventually gets some more direct responses). This is because the earrings are Hemalurgic spikes, just with little or no Hemalurgic charge [[note]] WordOfGod is that the earrings are melted-down-and-reforged Inquisitor spikes, and leaving them out most of the time let all but the bare minimum Hemalurgic charge drain out[[/note]]. Harmony has Ruin's power and thus his ability to communicate with those pierced by spikes. The Path dictates that the earring should be worn during daily prayers (which are really just reflection) or while undertaking actions of great import, so that Harmony can nudge people when he needs to, particularly at critical moments.

* The reason why enough Terris blood ended up in the general population within a few hundred years to make Twinborn and Ferrings? A substantial part of the Ska and Nobel population (the Luthandel refugees) was living in close proximity to the Terris people for weeks during the end of ''The Hero of Ages'', and the chaos and desperation of those last few weeks would have resulted in most social mores and propriety against interracial relationships were thrown out the window. Not to mention that the Terris survivors were in close proximity to the remaining Ska/Nobel survivors in the other storage caches/shelters after Sazed repaired the damage to the world. In that, there would be more than enough Nobels (and Ska with Nobel heritage) and Terris in close proximity and in situations where previous social constraints were relaxed or abandoned that interracial couples, and thus mixing of Allomantic and Feruchemist bloodlines, would occur.
** Not to mention that few of the Terris refugees were men, and most of them were past their prime.
* An addendum to the above: why are no "true" Feruchemists or Mistborn (just ferrings, Mistings, and Twinborn) encountered? All of the Mistborn and Feruchemists in the world by the end of ''The Hero of Ages'' had been killed by Ruin in one manner or another, save Sazed. On top of this, almost all of the nobility in ''Hero of Ages'' had been killed, either in the chaos or by Ruin's Inquisitors to get spikes, so the Allomantic bloodlines were diluted even more. There is only a single Mistborn left by the end of the original trilogy: Spook. It's a plot point that all of the kidnapped women can trace their lineage back to them. In fact, the original trilogy mentions at a couple points that Allomantic powers had already been in decline since the beginning of the Final Empire. In the beginning, any emotional Allomancer could control koloss or kandra, but by the time of the books, it could only be done with the help of duralamin. Plus it's noted that the Lord Rulers attempts to weed out Ferruchemy hadn't been entirely unsuccessful.
* People wear earrings while praying to Harmony. When Wax prays to Harmony, he feels like he is detecting a faint response. This is because the earrings are, effectively, Hemalurgic spikes, just not carrying a Hemalurgic charge, and Harmony carries Ruin's power and thus his ability to communicate with those pierced by metal. Hence the provisions of the Path requiring the earring to be worn during daily prayers (which are really just reflection), allowing Harmony to subtly guide his followers - just as with the provision that it should be worn while undertaking actions of great import, so that Harmony can nudge people at critical moments. WordOfGod is that the earrings are melted-down-and-reforged Inquisitor spikes, and leaving them off most of the time let all but the bare minimum Hemalurgic charge drain out.
