The Defense Seals are so goddamn good that its worth dumping the coins and badges for. Stat+3/5 Seals are also kinda useful for that extra push for things like GHeBs and such. Really, the Great Badges are going to be the main limiting factor since you also need them to promote units to 5 star.

As for my Poprocks and Soda combos, I went and gave Mist Wrathful Staff (since she's my 'other' 5 star Staffbot currently), and Boey an extra +3 Def to make up for his Bane. This enabled me to finally spend on Ephraim who can now double shit (and is about to become a proud recipient of Death Blow 3 to further complete the Blue Infantry Buff Nuke build).

I also wasted 35 Orbs pulling on the Forgeable Weapons banner to no effect (I did get a new Caeda for SI/merge purposes), on top of the 55 Orbs I dumped to pull Shiro with +Def/-HP.

As for my ongoing VG disasters, I started with Catria and am now on Tharja. Once she loses I'm siding with Faye to doom her to Sigurd/Dorcas.

I miss Rhythm Encounter >:(
Is it never coming back?

I hate throwing out overly-official-sounding vague statements, but... we currently don't have any plans to bring it back.

I want to at some point, but it's a logistics issue, so until we have a way to make it work again on a regular basis, it will have to remain on hiatus. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

It boils down to whether or not the idea of superb turn-based combat and character creation trips your trigger and if that is the case then don't hesitate.

That sounds like EXACTLY my kind of game.

My limited experience with EO tells me that it's pretty good about giving the player creative ways to heal with other classes.  But obviously if you skip the traditional "Healer", then it's going to be more difficult, but you do at least get more firepower to try and tip the scales.

Once I wrapped my head around some of the mechanics in Untold, I was surprised how often I could heal through seemingly random actions, especially against mobs.  The Highlander class had some neat skills in this regard.

I got the game and I'll probably start playing it after I finish Pokemon Ultra Moon. I did get started in the Demo and made a team of Dragoon, Harbinger, Warlock, Masurao and Shaman. It's the first time I'm running without the designated healing class (Botanist in this case). Shaman kinda heals but at least as far as I've gotten, it's not that great at it being that it's a mixed class.

Dragon Quest 5 - The translation in the DS version started annoying me so I checked out the PS2 version which, despite having kinda grody character models makes up for it with a *really* good orchestral soundtrack and better monsters than the DS version had. Except the translation's really... it doesn't read well and it has some obvious errors that result in lines not making sense. I mean I could just play it untranslated. I should probably just do that.

The PS2 game has two translations, though. The "ye olde" DW translation  and the standard DQ translation. Had no problem with the latter myself, except that being a bit more faithful to the original conflicts with stuff like DQ Heroes which changed names and stuff.

I switched to Faye myself for more feathers and HM. I have plenty of feathers but I'm always interested in building random 4*s I've pulled, assuming I ever pull a halfway decent IV on one. For now I've dumped a bunch of them to merge my Reinhardt up to +6.

Also my free pull of the new weapons banner was a 4* Odin.

EDIT: I have a bad habit of hoarding limited resources in RPGs, but seeing Aeolus spend his helps convice me to start spending some of my own coins and pebbles.

For seals I got myself Close Defense 3 and Brash Assault 3. Still have over 400 left over, and I'm eyeing the Savage Blow seal a little bit but I don't have all the resources to put it to use yet (I want to put it on a +SPD Clarine).

Pebbles went to Ninian, Mae, and Priscilla, the former two getting +SPD of course. Ninian now sits at base 36 speed, and that's without a SPD boon or any A slot skill. Mae only has 33 SPD now, even with Fury, but mine has a speed bane, so if I draw a better Mae sometime I can instantly bump her up to like 40 SPD. These 3 weapons gave me enough of the Divine Jugdral Shota to set Eliwood's sword on fire. Now I just have to pull an Eliwood with a good IV set (mine's Neutral, and not sure if I want +ATK to capitalize on the heavy blade effect or +SPD to patch up his mediocre speed).
