Now I'm curious what he caught relative to my previous text dump.

I notice two things: the bit about the tendrils breaking down was assuming the pactin is in stage two, but Asia's symptoms were clearly far worse than what it described for stage two. Also, it said pactins can't access the watchtowers, which as I understand it, means pactins can't cast, but Hizrim was casting through Asia.

Been a while since I've posted but...
I think Billy noticed the bit about non-sentience.
Hizram gave itself a name and could talk, and yet the book claims a lack of intelligence. An inherent contradiction in the text itself.
From that piece, he suspects the writer didn't actually know much about abyssals at all and doubts the writing's credibility.

@Miyto: This is all relatives. Someone/something with average human intelligence doesn't even begin to compare to (certain) high tier spirits, capable of pulling off a Xanatos gambit. It could just mean that they most likely are just trying to fulfill the role of "make more pactins" as opposed to some grander scheme, such as "slowly subvert/convert a large group of mages to unwittingly release a large number of X from the abyss in order to accomplish Y, using steps A, B, and C, by riling up the Vampires in location Z and offering power to defeat those vampires..."

Forgetting all the Pactin stuff...
When you use the in-panel arrows to advance on the last page they don't take you to this one, you have to hit the red 'Next' button below it.

As a side note, it FeelsGoodMan to know I was right when I said Acamoth ages and ages ago on what Hizrim was.

I Agree with Billy, something is off.
