If a scenario came up where Seren and Zaros HAD to fight, who would win in your opinion?

This is something that has often been whispered on the forums, but never has it been discussed in a full-on thread.

Two Tier Two Transcendent Twins. Both divine creations of an Elder God. Who would win in a war?

Rate them by their armies, resources, secret toys, brains, control of the anima mundi, and their sheer on-hand godly magic powers.



The Battlefield:
A desolate, rocky plateau near Trollheim. (So no enchanted forest or home-field advantage of any kind :) )

----------------------
Here is my guess:

--By Army--
Victor: Unknown
Seren's army is more abundant and they are incredibly strong. However, Zaros has only very few remnants of his army left under the lead of Nex. He has desert bandits, which are pretty weak but resourceful I guess, and a couple of demons. His ace cards are probably Nex/Vindicta and Azzanadra, who are capable of beating armies, but Azzy and Nex they can easily be weakened by some funky ritual, which Serenists are good at creating. As for the other Mahjarrat/Char, I wouldn't rely on them too much, as the adventurer has beaten them before without WG powers. Tbh idk who would win, so I will leave it here.

--Resources--
Victor: Seren
Her lands are in close proximity to a high tier wisp colony. The Amlodd could use the wisp to make cool stuff or power up Seren. They could make transport routes to the battlefield and stuff lol. They are also close to the World Gate, have alliances with Saradominist cities, and a warm city to come home to. They are not malnourished from hiding in caves, living in hot deserts, or under ice for so long. Don't forget, the Serenists have magical, shape-shifting crystal too.

I worship Mah, for she is mah homegirl! The correct adjective for Mah's followers are: Mahomies, Mah-homeboys, or Mah-homegirls.

--Control of the Anima Mundi--
Victor: Of all, Guthix was the greatest, but now...probably Seren
Whoever has control the planet's soul better can win the war easier right? While all tier 2 gods have some degree of control over the anima mundi, Seren has always been famed for having a spiritual connection with the soul of the earth. Her bond with it is renowned throughout gnomes, elves, and humans. However, we have never seen Zaros openly use his anima-mundi warping powers ever, unless he secretly practiced manipulating it in his castle during his empire-era...


--Toys/Hidden abilities/Secret Gifts--
Victor: Unknown
Ehh, none of them have elder artefacts or special gifts that I can think of.

--Experience in war--
Victor: Zaros.
Zaros would probably create some elaborate plan to sneak attack the Serenist armies. He is a master tactician. As for Seren, she has no experience in fighting and would probably have to gain advice from the Cadarn and Iowerth Leader.

--Sheer power--
Victor: Unknown,
It really depends on your choices in Fate of the Gods and The Light Within. If you crippled Zaros but fully restored Seren, it will factor in a lot. I'm kindaaa leaning towards Seren either way, because she never lost much power upon her destruction. Her crystal body parts still had energy in them and she had Gielinor to feed off on. As for Zaros, he was sapped dry by the Staff of Armadyl and was forced to live off of scraps of his mom's energy (the Muspah).



Winner in total Seren (3-1).


Feel free to add more categories if you think it is needed :D

For those of you that argue that a Zaros x Seren war is highly unlikely, recall that Seren has stated in the TLW cutscene that she will do ANYTHING to stand in Zaros' way of ascending to elder godhood.

"You misunderstand me brother. I cannot stand with you, but I will stand against you. As long as I live, I will stop you from becoming an Elder god."

And as we all know, Zaros really really reeeeaally wants to become an Elder God. Is Zaros' love for Seren strong enough to stop his centuries-long ambitions?

Another question is, does Zaros even really love Seren, or is that the Aura of Love doing all the work? There has been only one cutscene with them together, and they were verbally arguing over family... That isn't love.
