Revan's place among the Elite Force Users

When it comes to the Elite Force Users in the Star Wars Universe where does Revan stand?

He is in the top tier for sure, yet I'd say the likes of Sidious, Bane, Exar Kun, Nihilus, Yoda, Luke, and perhaps some others are ahead of him.

Really? How would Revan handle Kun's amulets, or Nihilus' drain?

I think there's been ample proof that Revan is at least familiar with the drain, if he can't outright do it himself.

Kreia was familiar with it too, didn't stop Nihilus from draining her.

If by 'ample proof', you mean 'he was on Malachor', then yes.

edit: Oh snap!

No, ample proof offered off by Janus, Nai, and myself. The same planet where Nihilus and Kreia got their drain is where Revan studied the underground cities filled with sith tomes, holocrons, etc.

Which means he must of studied that specific technique, obviously.

Oh lord. You're right, logical deduction flies out the window because it would destroy your argument.

Dude, you said it yourself: 'Revan studied the underground cities filled with sith tomes, holocrons, etc.'

Are we just going to assume that by studying some of the material inside an entire ****ing city he studied the exact same technique? No, of course not, thats retarded.

Nice comeback. Very logical and well reasoned.

SWL's training has served him well.

I forgot you two subscribe to the lightsnake method. Bringing up lost arguments and pretending the debates never occured. Kreia was familiar with the drain but I'd give more leeway to someone that has studied the with lore on the planet.

The KotOR campaign guide explicitly states that it was Kreia who trained Nihilus to harness his powers to their epic proportion, not to mention she has canonically performed similar feats on the remnants of the Jedi Council on Dantooine. Against that, what do you have to say that Revan's knowledge of the technique is equal or superior? More importantly, what do you have to say that he would be immune from such an attack by Nihilus?

I would have to say that canonically he is the only one to have studied the underground cities of Malachor 5 and therefore the character with the best chance to counter the drain. Otherwise. We can say Nihilus drains everybody.

Some subscribe to that theory.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: This is where I should probably be completely honest {SWL, if you're out there, watch and learn}. As usual, I'm in the unique and enviable position of being awesome and winning either way. This thread is a Xanatos Gambit for me. On the one hand, if Nephthys beats you, it continues my systematic campaign to provide generous reality checks to Revan's unrelenting horde of fanboys who refuse to provide properly cited and sourced honest arguments. On the other hand, if you beat him, I have more ammunition to undermine the argument that Nihilus can drain anyone {which I personally don't subscribe to}. Now be good pawns and continue to duke it out.
