Gandalf vs Belgarath Can't Post

Who wins, the Maia spirit Olorin in the form of Gandalf the Grey, or the seven-thousand year-old disciple of Aldur, Belgarath?

I'd say this one would be fairly close. While Gandalf's power is usually subtle in nature, he can do some pretty dramatic things if he wants to. Sorcery as used by Belgarath depends on the willpower of the caster, and the things one can do with it seem to be practically limitless, whilst magic in Middle-earth terms is never fully explained.

I would lean towards Gandalf here, since despite his age and skill Belgarath is only a man, whilst Gandalf is essentially an angelic being. It would be a very interesting contest.

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."-Gandalf
