was the mind/body transfer technique that bane used the same that zash used? I just thought of this while reading darth plagius

Both are Essence Transfer techniques so yes. However the power comes in many different forms and had been used in many different ways, what Zash used was a variant of essence transfer. And Bane a different one. However they do possess several similarities. According to Wookieepedia, Andeddu studied the ways of the original Dark Lords of the Sith. Tulak Hord was one of these Sith, so perhaps he partially learned the technique from him (and also from Karness Muur) and perfected it into his own technique that could be used instantly, rather than needing an elaborate ritual.

Ehh, well they have the same effect: Essence Transfer, however Zash needed relics to use it where as Bane could use it without them. I'd say the same technique but different way of using it.

Plus with the one Bane used it was hit or miss. Either you took the body or you fell into oblivion. Zash's clearly left some wiggle room.
Like others said: Same purpose, different variants.
Never give up! Never surrender!
