I'll have to reread the description Moraine gives, but I think it's more likely that she just uses miasma as a descriptive word when explaining it. Miasma is just a word for an odorous/noxious/foul atmosphere or feeling. I don't think it was intended to be an actual word for the occurrences. From there and throughout the rest of the books they're just described as bubbles of evil. 126.96.36.199 17:49, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
- Would you maybe suggest renaming this article or list to "Bubbles of Evil" It seems like something that might be worth documenting the occurrences of. Lacitpo 20:58, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
- I entirely agree. Fatidiot1234 18:21, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
- So maybe someone who knows the proper method to change an article's name could go about renaming this article when a name is settled on. Possible just "Bubbles of Evil" although I'm not sure if a seperate article should be created to list the events that happen related to the bubbles, or if the list should just be included as a section within the article.

Where in WoT is "Miasma" used for this phenomenon? Fatidiot1234 01:18, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
- When Moraine first mentions the "bubbles of evil" in The Shadow Rising, she calls them "Miasma". MegaZeroX 15:43, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
Regarding this "bubble".
I take this to mean instead of "bubble of evil", this is rather one of the general weakenings of the pattern that was commented on and observed in keeps all across the WoT world.

- I agree. I believe this shouldn't be a "bubble of evil", it is just the pattern weakening. The same effect is happening everywhere and therefore should be moved to it's own page (possibly "effects of the pattern weakening") or removed entirely. If Mainphramephreak doesn't respond, I will remove it from the article it in a couple days. MegaZeroX 15:43, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
- That sounds good. The changes to the palaces' layouts, paintings, and furniture should be included with it. I'll do it tomorrow (if you haven't already done it). MegaZeroX 04:44, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
I don't want to edit this in case Im wrong but if anyone else can confirm please delete this bullet. In "The duel between Rand al'Thor and Toram Riatin" it appears that the mashadar attack is actually caused by a power of padan fein. He has shown the ability to control tendrils of it so it appears this had to be fien, not a "bubble of evil" from the dark one who is by all appearances an opposing force to mashadar.
