"You boys will regret it if you move any farther up the ranks. Trust me."

El'the is the rank within the Arcanum that comes after Re'lar. The rank is two steps ahead of E'lir.


El'the is the highest student rank within the arcanum, expected to last around ten terms before promotion to Full Arcanist. As with any student rank within the University a student must be sponsored for promotion. Patrick Rothfuss has said the etymology and meaning of El'the will be revealed in book three.
