Are there parts in the WoT that moved you, you had to re-read over and over again and everytime you read it, you tear ducts work uncontrollably or you feel a burning in your busom?
I have a few of these parts, but probably the one that strikes a chord with me the most is when Perrin sees Faile leading the Watch Hill Army into the backside of the Trolloc revolt in Emonds Field in the Shadow Rising. That book actually has a couple of spots like that for me, but I really point to the whole battle of Emonds field as my favorite part of the WoT. How about you?
Brin, that's just scary. My favorite book is TSR due largely due to the Emond's Field battles* (though all the Aiel stuff doesn't hurt...). Nynaeve and the Crane and especially her block breaking are also towards the top of my list.
Dumai Well's, Perrin vs. the Hedgehog*, Rand vs. Rahvin*, Mo's "Death"*, Cleansing of the Taint, Perrin vs. Aram (just because I never liked him), and Mat breaking into the Stone would probably round out my top ten. Those aren't in any specific order though, as it would be too tough to sort them. I'm also probably forgetting something, so I'll post that when I see it.
I stared the ones that moved me to tear up a bit. For Rand vs. Rahvin, it was more for everyone that 'died' right before the battle on my first read through. Yeah, I should have known that they wouldn't stay dead, but they just 'killed' Mo, so I figured anything is possible.
Galads fight against Valda was insane, pretty much anything to do with mat... i love the scene when he first wakes up from being healed and thumps galad and gawyn in the practice yard. i could really go on there are just to many parts which i enjoy
My favourite parts of the books are when Egwene works from within the Tower after her capture, and the progression of the relationship between Mat and Tuon. None of those make me cry, though, so I'll have to think a bit more about that kind of parts. I am eagerly waiting to see how Egwene's influence from inside the Tower will work out in AMoL, though!

I agree with Tinto - I liked the Egwene centric story arcs.
I read the books so long ago now, I can barely remember anything about them. I might have to have a re-read soon, however i keep putting it off as every book after the Dragon Reborn is a form of mental torture.
well i have glasses. i think its because of reading so much but to me its a far trade.lol i only read all 11 bout 5 times. and only the ones that keep going on about elayne (i think CoT but not sure) r mental torture.lol but still written great. i also like mat and tuon parts and no parts made me cry.
