-Lightning > Basilisk Blood. And it doesn't need to absorb powers, it's already cool. It also glows in warning when enemies are near, very handy. Besides, his staff is better than a wand, aside from the arsenal of spells he weilds through it, you can also knock someone out with a quick whack to the head, as he demonstrated a few times Used in combo with the sword, he's so ninja. -Ok so he can travel fast, so what? Fat lot of good it did him And the horse didn't throw Denethor off the cliff, he jumped off when he caught fire, maybe you need to watch the movies again? -Again maybe you need to watch the movies one more time, he was knocked over by the whip, but he still had a grip on the edge of the bridge and could have been pulled up by the others. He then told them all to run, and he let go of the edge to pursue the Balrog and destroy it, so it wouldn't get up to anymore evil-doing. Dumbledore didn't kill anything close to the Balrog, just sat around doing a whole lot of nothing, so who's the sissy pants now?
Yes Dumbledore saved two people, but they weren't exactly top people now were they? Gandalf saved heroes
Gandalf also posesses thousands of years of knowledge and experience, thats hard to trump.
Potatoes- -Uh, I'm pretty sure you're thinking of Frodo's sword, Sting. Gandalf's sword doesn't really do anything when enemies are near. And I'm glad we're all realizing that a wizard doesn't need a sword to fight. They're wizards. Duh. -YOU'RE THE ONE WHO SAID THE HORSE PUSHED DENATHORE! -Gandalf inadvertently saved what? 8 people? Dumbledore saved thousands, in not millions by staying and fighting Voldemorte. And for the record, Gandalf didn't let go. His old frail body just couldn't hold on any longer.
Dumbledore was about 170ish when he died. I'd say that's plenty of wisdom.
H-You're still wrong.
Lolznoob-Thanks for the Toasty support, but you're views on the topic at hand are a little skewed. Dumbledore is the one who goes all the way.
Rise Against-I'd like to see Gandalf take on the dark lord. And for the record, Gandalf also never took on an entire Orcish army by himself.
Evanescense-You call that an arguement? I see your pitiful point and replace it with my own. Dumbledore.
