Enhanced Bending
« on: December 05, 2012, 02:58:34 AM »
So, we all know that comets (made of rock and ice) give firebenders extreme firebending. Now what would give waterbenders or earthbenders extreme bending? Or even airbenders?

Something I thought of for earthbenders is the planets aligning. It makes sense doesn't it? Earth is a planet, so if other planets align with the Earth, it could give earthbenders extreme earthbending.

Thoughts on the subject?

How about a tornado enhancing airbending?

Or the solar eclipse where the moon blocks out the sun enhancing waterbending?

Oooo, a tornado enhancing airbending is interesting.

Well, a Solar Eclipse only hinders firebenders from not bending, I don't think it enhanced waterbenders at all. They seemed to bend normally during the Day of Black Sun to me. Waterbender lose waterbending during a Lunar Eclipse though.

I wonder if hurricanes could enhance water and airbending. They can be quite powerful, so perhaps it might be possible for the water and airbenders to tap into that power? ^^'

I think Airbenders and Waterbenders could increase the strength of a hurricane, especially Katara and Aang together, say, but in terms of enhancing their bending abilities, in strictest terms I don't think so.  With a hurricane they would just be making use of what already exists--just how Katara's effect was magnified depending on how much water was available.  Waterskin, not so much.  Pond/canal or greater, look out.  XD

I'd think an exceptionally close pass of the Moon might enhance Waterbenders' abilities, especially during a full moon.  For Airbenders... well, since they're more spiritually attuned, maybe their bending in very spiritual places would be enhanced.  We never did see Aang Airbend at Tui and La's pool, did we?  I wonder what would have happened.

That's interesting about the airbenders, Wulf. Stronger bending in a spiritual place.

I think what strengthens or hinders bending more is cosmic events, like an eclipse or a comet.

Yeah, I didn't think it would but I couldn't think of anything that might enhance their bending. But, bending in spiritual places as a way to enhance airbending is an interesting idea! ^^
