Weaves are things of the One Power, used by channelers. To gain weaves, a
member of your same sex must teach them to you, or you must learn them
from a tome or scroll with the Study skill. Channelers who are not a

other way is through questing. Sphere points can be purchased at a cost of
very many quest points. This is the safest way.
