Talk:Eye of Mordor

"So, it is clear that the power of the Eye was somehow connected to the Ithil-stone in Sauron's power, but whether the stone granted him the power of the Eye, or merely enhanced his own natural powers, is open to question."

With regard to that, Gandalf seemed to have limited powers of clairvoyance without using a palantir, and Galadriel was able to accomplish similar feats with her Mirror. --Ted C 13:08, 24 October 2006 (CDT)
