High Mage Edit

I'm not sure if he's a High Mage either...maybe the category should be eliminated? Sscott328 13:49, May 23, 2011 (UTC)Sscott328

Fair enough :) ... he may not technically be a high mage, although his powers of Denul are certainly shown to be "high mage" quality. What gives him those abilities might come some other source. — Game widow (talk) 13:59, May 29, 2011 (UTC)
...and we got back to the high mage definition problem. As far as I remember the first character called a natural high mage appeared at MBF7 (Faradan Sort's assistant), Sinn could be classified in that category certainly, but the only known proof Tattersail could be a high mage was promotion she rejected (Master of the Deck position wasn't equal with a high mage - see: Ganoes Paran). According to another malazan wiki [1] a high mage was just extremally powerful one. My conclusion is: there are characters we are sure they were natural or promoted high mages (they were directly called high mages by Erikson), but in some other cases (eg. Brood, Sail) we can suppose that or similar status only (safe wiki description could be like - character's magic power was comparable with a high mage's power). --dotz 19:35, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps we can change the category description itself to include those who are essentially at the same level of power as a high mage. That way we organize everyone of that level in one category, just to keep things simple. Sscott328 21:23, May 31, 2011 (UTC)Sscott328
