A lot of people make a big deal, with saying: "Oh, the exile is stronger because she gave up the force, something that Revan could never do. Exile sounds cooler." OH! and let's not forget my personal favorite! "Exile would own Revan because Revan can only go to Level 20 and Exile can go up to 50!" First of all, I can't think of one way you could go all the way to level 50 WITHOUT cheating, which is something you can do in KOTOR too. What if Exile used level up cheat several times and Revan just said "To hell with that" and used the invulnerability cheat? hmmm? Try to avoid in game statistics when you're talking about something like this. "Exile can go up to level 50" is basically a cover up for "I can't think of a realistic reason." AGAIN! REVAN OWNS!
Revan can pwn almost everyone! the only person he/she cant pwn is the ultimate darkness. (if you have completed KOTOR 2 lightside you know what i'm taking about) =p But revan could of survived! (i hope so)
I hope you all realize that Revan and the Exile only exist in your mind, because they have never appeared outside K1 and 2, in which they were customizable by you, the player. In other words, the Revan/Exile I see is much different than yours. And second, Nihilus would drain even Revan. It's sad but true.
Finaly, the voice for reason!! And if Nihilus could drain Revan, so could the Exile!!

She can't. The wound was closed at the end of the second game. Bioware confirmed it. And Nihilus is dead.
1. Wound never closed. a. never happens in-game b. if it did, Kreia wouldn't send the Exile off to join Revan 2. BioWare had nothing to do with K2. 3. The Nihilus draining Revan situation is purely hypothetical.

I keep thinking Obsidian did the first one for some reason and vice versa, thanks for reminding me. Also you've got a point though implied (atleast I think it was) we never actually learn if her wound closed via her and her companions actions on Malachor V. Though they (Obsidian) said it did. I'll try and find the article if I can.
I have stressed contributors once and again: THE FORCE WOUND IS NOT THE CAUSE BEHIND THE EXILE'S INHERENT CAPABILITIES!! The Force-wound is clearly described in-game (by Kreia) as a RESULT of the main character "giving up the Force" and the dramatic end of the Mandalorian Wars. Even if it were closed, it would not mean the Exile "lost" his/her power, for it was already there, and such is stated multiple times throughout the game, by the Jedi Masters and Kreia. I used to think the Force-wound was something the Exile and Nihilus drew power from, but after finishing TSL for the fourth time, I finaly analysed and paid extreme attention to all related data, and found the Force-wound was actualy an effect, and not the cause of the Exile's "dis-connection." And even if such wasn't the case (which it is), the Exile would be able to drain the Force from any other similar phenomena, as one would think there is more than one Force-wound in the galaxy. Ultimately, the Exile's power would not be diminished by healing the Force-wound, it would actualy make him/her far more powerful than before. That much is explained thoroughly in the game. Now J Carter is prudent enough to clarify the "Nihilus draining Revan" is merely an Hypothesis, but this is because it never happened, not because it isn't based on logical speculation. It can be infered, since Nihilus feeds on the Force itself, that Revan would not be able to defeat the Sith Lord. This is not an out of the blue, crazy, and biased suggestion, for it is based upon solid, actual facts. It is not a matter of opinion, it is as certain as death. The only one who could beat Nihilus was the Exile, and THAT is why Kreia manipulates them into fighting each other.
Jedijax I know it is a hypothesis. I merely stated he was already dead. On a side note Revan probably would've done what Kreia did and manipulated the Exile to fight for him.
:lookaround: No, no, that was not directed to you particularly, but to any reading J Carter's clarification. I'm sorry if I made it look that way!! The fact it never happened is what turns it hypothetical, not the resolution itself. You clearly stated "Nihilus is dead" and as we never saw him, nor knew of him fighting Revan, the obvious approach is he never did. As for Revan manipulating the Exile, it is highly probable, for he already knew of his unique phisiology and power. My approach on that in the previous post was it would be pointless for Kreia to pit Revan against Nihilus, as she already knew the first could not beat his foe.
