Yeah but I think the Story Group guys should be expected to answer questions. Novelists on the other hand... The kind of questions fans ask is probably beyond most of them.

Ahsoka VS Shaak Ti. Who’s the more overrated torgruta.

They're both probably underrated.

Yeah, well, critical thinking becomes comfirmation bias when you try to fit the evidence into desired conclusions.

Anyway, here. Since screenplay writing is hard, i'll spend a few seconds to clear this up by reposting the link I've posted but people have undoubtedly refused to read multiple times with because it doesn't align with the world view of sw powersets that they've become emotionally attached to.

Notice the use of multiple offical sources . As always if contrary evidence is provided, then i'm open to this being debunked. But asking a dude a question and disregarding when he claims he isn't sure is the height of cognitive dissonance.

Oh and here's another source posted in the comments:
quote:
"While Darth Vader suffered a terrible defeat on Mustafar, he would choose to make the lava planet his home. The Sith Lord constructed a massive castle, harnassing Mustafar lava for energy. The building was a blackened tower, dividing in the middle to resemble tuning forks. According to legend, it was built on the site of an ancient Sith cave, and the tower itself was designed to channel the power of the Dark Side." - StarWars.Com: Mustafar.

Like I said: Martin didn't formally debunk anything with this particular Twitter post. Directing a faux-intellectual rant towards me doesn't change that.

As mentioned, in the same breath Martin explicitly stated that he wasn't present for the discussions, so he couldn't speak to the implications either way. Therefore, his statement should not be construed as incontrovertible fact... Quite the opposite, actually.


I don't have a stake in this whole 'nexus debate' one way or the other(literally couldn't care less.) Again, I am just commenting on the inadmissibility of this specific post of his.

There is still no evidence in canon that these so called "darkside nexuses" hinder lightside users

Using official sources doesn't make you right.

Matt Martin is also an official source.

Point is nobody official (and no official source) has confirmed anything regarding the matter.

Point still stands though. I have seen many of your posts on CV regarding Ahsoka helding her own against Maul and Vader on "a darkside nexus". Even if darkside nexuses exist in canon, we have no way to gauge how powerful they are as compared to the legends version of nexuses, we also don't know if they hinder light side users. But judging from the episode itself, it clearly doesn't, as Ahsoka was doing just fine against Maul and Vader. (unless there is some kind of PIS involved like in virtually every Rebels episode)

Malachor V is both a Dark Side nexus and a Wound in The Force.

When Bao-Dur's Mass Shadow Generator was activated, it cleansed most of the Force on the planet, but it was not strong enough to penetrate Trayus Academy's structure. And this is why there is still the presence of the darkness felt in that place.

This thread is about canon not Legends...

Ok...?

But, still, most people don't know that.

You know thinking about Malachor in the D canon sense, anyone else notice that in all of Rebels, many of the planets were...very bland and uninteresting?
