Quote from user_938036 »Didn't they not even fight the shadows but the Endless spawn? I assume you are talking about the story where Nahiri forges that sword then the plane dies, if your are talking about the art book entry then that is interesting to know, does it mention which Titan?Quote from ChrisBP7 »Quote from Xul »Quote from MrBiggelz »As for number 6. It is a misunderstanding on your part.
Ugin, Spring, and Nahiri were capable of killing the eldralz. Ugin refused to in fear that he could upset an ecosystem beyond his understanding, therefore releasing an even greater threat into the multiverse. That's why Ugin was so upset the the gatewatch killed the Titans.
There is a big difference between COULDN'T and WOULDN'T.
They voluntarily went through the the effort to trap and not to kill, which would have been easier.
Don't quote me on this one but I'm 100% sure that there is a story out there that says that Sorin and Nahiri had tried to kill the titans but that they couldn't do it and only after that did the run into Sorin. It might have been retconed, though.
Yes, they couldn't defeat them because they didn't have Ugin's Insight. He didn't tell them how to "submerge" the titans into a plane, therefore they both only fought the 3D "shadows" of the Eldrazi before.
I meant that they couldn't actually hurt the titans because of this. I don't even know whether they fought the "shadows" at all. I think it was implied once that they tried to, but I have no memory off where that came from.
