"Between the volcano link-up and his three recent levels (two from traps and combat, one from all of the city rebuilding), Sizemore was now a greater Dirtamancer than he ever imagined he could become. He had not actually crossed the threshold to Master class, but that could happen any time a caster gained powerful new insight into his discipline or major class. The body analogy wasn't quite enough to push him past that mark; he was still missing something. But for the first time in his life, he felt pretty sure that he would get there."
"Lady Firebaugh has said as much, and I have seen as much. I have held the Arkenpliers, did you know? Have you?"
Ossomer nodded solemnly. "I have. Each Prince of Jetstone held them at least once, in hopes of attunement."
For the first time, Sylvia smiled. It was only the barest tightening of the lips, but it made her seem present in a way she normally did not.
"Do you remember the sense of the divine? Did you feel that your hands were in contact with something greater than the world?" she asked. She turned her head and looked into the featureless distance. "The Arkentools were used to build the world. I wielded the Arkenpliers, and had the feeling that they could build more worlds than only this one. Their power was primal, undeniable, and very strange."
Selexor wrote:She clearly felt something that neither Ossomer or Ansom did, but didn't instantly attune to them. Maybe because Wanda was fated to attune and that blocked Sylvia from doing so, or maybe because she needed time to attune properly as suggested above, while Wanda was already ready to attune at the first chance. But this suggests to me pretty strongly that more than one unit can be ready to attune, even if only one unit can be an attuned Wielder at a time. Sort of like the Potentials from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - they're ready, and the already have some level of power that most normals don't, and when Fate calls they'll get the full measure of power. But they just don't get to use that power fully yet.

Intocabille_CZ wrote:I have another question about theory of atunement.
Do you think that there can be more than one unit at any given time atuned to specific arkentool? Like Wanda to the pliers. Do you think there can be another unit able to atune at the moment? Or does the Erfworld need to wait for Wanda´s death before Fate will pop another aune-able unit for the pliers? Can an arkentool have several atuned users at a time or new atunement will overwrite the old one till the other unit touches the tool again (if it is possible there are more atune-able units at the time)
