Inrau's death, as my name attests.

Any scene where "weak and foolish" Achamian lays waste with the Gnosis. Seriously, if he's just some low ranked shlub in the Mandate, imagine what his "betters" can do. But mostly it's the juxtaposition between his appearance/demeanor and what he's capable of.

The final scene of TTT. OK yeah, I'm kind of an Achamian fanboy. This scene sealed it for me tho. AC-DC be damned, Akka's got the biggest balls of them all.

Seswatha's dreams. I so want to know more about the first apocalypse era. The tidbits from atrocity tales only whet the hunger.

The few glimpses we get into the Chishaurim. Another mystery among the many that are barley touched upon.

Best ending to a book ever (at least, the books I've read).  "I renounce!"  Yes!
No whistling on the slog!

I read the series twice (I only had to a month or two for TTT when I found the TDTCB) before I found the original Three-Seas forum and realized there was TAE.

I will remember that forever.

I really think the last line of TTT is my favorite sentence ever (can't remember it exactly, I believe its "retracing his bloodied footsteps, the Wizard limped on). If I get the opportunity to have a copy of TTT signed, I'm going to request to have that line, or part of it, inscribed as well.

I thought you got a book signed, Wilshire? White-Luck Warrior?

I don't think the spoiler is necessary, GJ; TTT subforum.

But The-Wind-Has-Teeth was also one of my favorite characters. Such an efficient pawn.

Can someone remind me who Athjeari is? Drawing a major blank...

Saubon's Nephew. 

Coithus Athjeari led the scouts of the Holy War.  (and was pretty fucking awesome at it IMO).  He at one point becomes known as "The Wind With Teeth" to the Kianene.

The most memorable scenes, where you see RSB's noschii, are the scenes where Dunyain confronts Dunyain. Inrilatus v Maithanet, Kellhus v Moenghus.

Also, it's a small scene, but when Akka asks Kellhus - why didn't you heal him in relation to Xinemus. It's brilliantly done!

Genius, FB.

Welcome to the Second Apocalypse, Gaston.

EDIT:

I just thought to add, Gaston, I too think the Dunyain versus Dunyain are some of the best scenes in the books.

And I actually thought Kellhus kind of scrambles when he has that lapse with Achamian who then accuses Kellhus of not being divine.
