Hey guys, I'm going to ask that the conversation not include references or instructions regarding homebrew and hacking one's console. If that's the conversation you're trying to have here, it does not belong at Nintendo Life. Thanks in advance, everyone!

@Knuckles: You don't understand, it's a consumable item. You can only use it during battle, but sometimes in battle it's available for use and sometimes it's greyed out. I'm asking whether anyone knows any of the specific rules behind the Seed of Trust and its use, because i've only found vague-ish stuff about it online.

The only things I know about it for sure are that it only works between units that can support with each other, and they have to be paired up at the time in order to use the item. I have no idea whether their successful use is based on many times the units have to attack during a given battle, how much exp is earned between them during that particular battle, how many turns have passed/what turn the battle is on, which level of Support you're grinding toward or how much 'support exp' must have been earned, what kind of ground you're standing on, etc. and so forth. At one point I had thought you had to be standing on a sparkling patch of ground in order to have the Seed of Trust be available for use, but that theory went out the window this morning. I also have no idea whether or not you're guaranteed to go up a level of support or not after having used one, and I won't without more testing, so if anyone else can shed some light, I'm all ears. :3

As for how Support works in general, i actually found a pretty good page at Serene's Forest here detailing how things go. Looks like I'll be hitting those Scramble maps quite a bit, lol. I'm just wondering about the Seed of Trust itself and what conditions must be met before it can be available for use. :3

does anyone have tips for grinding supports? i have this wild idea that it's feasible somehow for me to 100% this game (ha, it's gonna take forever, i know i know), and i'm not exactly sure on how to use the Seed of Trust — sometimes they seem to work, most of the time they don't. i think i read somewhere that if both units in a Pair go up a level they'll have a Support convo ready to go after battle, but that hasn't proved consistent in practice.

Hey guys (and i'm looking at you, @TAINT_Zzyex, @0Games) — our community rules not only ask that users here speak English, but also that users here not insult or flame one another. The next time i get a report in my inbox where someone is calling the other person horrible things in Portuguese or any other language, up to and including English, they will be banned, end of story. There has been far too much drama in here lately with the off-topic crap, and to have this starting up after we'd finally gotten that taken care of absolutely blows my mind. Please start being respectful toward one another.

i'm pretty sure i read that the game remembers your stats however you level them up, it's just that you're limited by the stat caps of the class you're putting the character in question into.

so, there's these two girls. I like one of them, but found out that the other on likes me. They're both pretty, and i have no idea what to do.

if you don't like the one that likes you, just be honest with her about it — you're interested in her sister, not her. it seems like the crappy thing to do, but be as nice as possible about it. in the long run it'll save her a lot of pain and get her going after someone else who maybe likes her back instead.

as for the one you actually like, good luck. :3 it's a strange situation, but you're young and you'll have plenty of 'likes' and 'crushes' before you start getting serious with anyone for reals, so have fun testing the waters of puppy love :3

That's why I do forge weapons...because gold is so easy to come by with DLC. After beating the main game, my main goal was to make an insane StreetPass Team so I like to give all my units a weapon that has the highest critical rate possible.

i've never streetpassed anyone else with this game before other than my husband, though. if i had, i might consider doing the same, lol.

that's what i was thinking — some devices like that may be one-way only, so if there was another adapter around you could try it instead to make absolutely sure it wasn't just the SD card (since this has happened before apparently). USB SD card readers are pretty cheap, you should be able to find one easily, and they're good to have around in a pinch. :3

whatever you do, don't pop the new SD card into the 3DS and let it format the thing for you! Just copy the entire contents of the original SD card onto your computer, then pop the new SD card into your camcorder/adapter (necessity is the mother of ingenuity ;)), format it, copy the contents of your old SD card from your computer and onto the new SD card (and make it look exactly like the old SD card did, no extra folders or anything). once that's done, then you can insert your new SD card into your 3DS and everything will be there and playable for you, good as new :3

here's an example that is probably as far as our Rules will allow — I went to buy weapons from one of my husband's teams one time and about died laughing at some sword he'd leveled up and renamed 'Owmaiaz'. That was waaaay back when I first learned we could rename weapons, and he and I have gone back and forth ever since, but that one will always be my favorite :3

Every Fire Emblem: Awakening cut-scene ever.

haha, this — especially the opening scene. that's what actually had me purchase the game in the first place, i absolutely, positively had to know the story behind that opening set of cutscenes. I also greatly enjoyed the animated cutscenes they added to Chrono Trigger via Final Fantasy Chronicles and kept for the DS remake. Ayla's intro was always my favorite of those, and then I also liked the one at the end of the game that showed Chrono and Marle's wedding. :3

That said, @pianomanfreak it's been too long since I've played GS:DD for me to say for sure, but I know for a fact the 'cutscene' you're talking about in Tierkreis is more along the lines of you watching a pre-scripted chunk of dialogue play out via in-game character sprites as opposed to actual animated cutscenes that are somewhat movie-like in nature...
