Power of the Verse
The Wheel of Time has an extremely wide range of power, from wall level Shadowspawn and blademaster-level humans, to powerful channelers, up to multiversal cosmic entities. Channelers can vary hugely in power depending on their natural capacity for holding the One Power, as well as whether or not they have access to angreal or sa'angreal, objects that provide exponential boosts in Power.
