Vaders peak was more around episode 3 then before episode 4...after he lost his limbs and padme, he ws just an empty shell, Bane learnt from Revan and A Lot of other powerful sith lords, Vader had palpatine yes but i would also like to add that Darth Krayt gets Banes holocron...not Vaders and i do believe Krayt was alive during Vaders reign...Fett it was nice knowing ya but Bane would crush him. Also Bane wasnt the only one considered the Sith'ari, there was also the Zabrak whos name escapes me right now.
I have a few things to add.
Well first I was gonna say about the Sith'ari thing but I didn;t want to make a mistake and I couldn;t be bothered to go get my copy of Path of Destruction to check. And secondly thats the reason I won' tell you the name of that Zabrak.
As for the Holocron well, I think ol' Krayt was probably not as learned as he would have hoped, seeing as if he wanted eternal life or whatever surely he should have used a holocron belonging to Plagueis?
Also he wanted to talk to Bane cos similarly to his Vong infection Bane had suffered that obalisk thing.
And the Vader Peak thing. Between III and IV. For Sure. Maybe around... 8 BBY or so?
As for Bane's advantages well he was a supreme master with a lightsaber he would have easily defeated the likes of Mace Windu and probably Yoda. He was also a master of the dark side. Think Luke (circa Betrayal) only on the dark side. On the first day he learnt Sith Lightning I would imagine it was Palpatine standard. He used the dark side to survive when powerful (really powerful) poison was in his system (killing him. He was also no physical pushover. Due to years in the Cortosis mines he was massivley strong like "World's Strongest Man" strong, it would take an awful lot to knock him off his feet even without the force.
Plus as many of you say in a lot of these things "Depends if Boba got the drop on him"
You can't "get the drop" on the dark side of the force.
This reminds me of a quote from Tales Of The Jedi The Sith War: "Technology, no matter how deadly,is no match for the force"
(So what I'm basically saying is stop going on about the EE-3 and junk, this is about skill not weaponry.)
