The Thrill is a heady euphoria described differently given the situation in which a combatant is involved. It is a feeling experienced by an individual and, likely, each individual's interpretation of it is unique.
Men didn't often speak of the Thrill, the joy and lust for battle. It was a private thing.
Seemingly, The Thrill 'sings' within the combatant's mind and provides him with focus and a sense of glory, thereby affording him the internal confidence to persevere, even in the face of deadly adversarial conflict.
Knights Radiant are immune to the Thrill's effects, and are often racked with feelings of disgust and nausea if it starts to come upon them.
It thrummed inside him as the pulse of battle, the rhythm of killing and dying. It drove away the pain of injury, let him focus.
According to Taravangian, the Thrill only affects people who are in a certain proximity to Nergaoul.
Types of ThrillsEdit
There exist the Thrill of Contest and the Thrill of Battle, of which readers know. It is possible that more 'Thrills' will be made known to readers in the coming novels within The Stormlight Archive.
