See my earlier post about the 3 different "types" of Elder Sorcery.

Hmm... I think that, given the effects of the spell (according to Paarfi's 
version anyway) he was using, it wouldn't have mattered much *who* was 
doing the spell at that point. (Other than, by virtue of the fact that he 
was Dragon Heir, the Orb sought him out, causing the conflict that 
resulted in the disaster.) If, say K'laiyer e'Lanya had still been alive, 
and had been Heir, and had tried to use the same spell, it would have had 
the same consequences.

Now, it was likely Adron's e'Kieron heritage that gave him the ability to 
create the chaos stones that made the spell possible in the first place, 
so it was likely a contributing factor, since K'laiyer e'Lanya wouldn't 
have been able to do such a spell, just because he wouldn't have the 
stones. (Please forgive me for the awful pun there.)
