@Aqueous: i figured that one out this morning while experimenting with the seeds for srs, they do indeed go grey when you've hit a new support rank. i can't explain why they're sometimes greyed out at the beginning of battle, though — that's what had me so confused before about their activation and use.

also, Stahl sucks and is boring and it is killing me that i'm having to drag him along to get his supports, lol. aargh i just want to leave him in the dust. Gregor is much more interesting and i'm having fun seeing what he has to say to everyone else :3

Actually, in discussions with Ant about a PM system, we've been against it because we'd have no way of monitoring said discussions without having to break the privacy of people attempting to have PM discussions, They'd no longer be PMs, just 'M's, so Ant's got a solution in mind to help users send messages to one another, it's just that to my knowledge it's gonna be a public system. anyone will be able to see what you're saying even though it's technically a direct message from one user to the other not sent via forums or main site comment thread. If you're looking for a truly private way to chat with one another, Nintendo Life is not now and likely will never be the place to do so, I'm afraid. We are not interested in giving ourselves yet another avenue for spammers to go after our users, nor are we interested in having to delve into what should be a personal discussion between two users.

As for solving the necro problem, it's one of the things that's in the works, and we can only continue to beg your patience.

I was leaning towards digital copies as I would not have to carry around cartridges (and I recently lost my copy of Super Mario 3D land) but my 3DS recently died and I had to send my console off to be repaired. Nintendo advised me that they could not guarantee that my 3DS would not be fully wiped when they returned it to me which was a bit scary because I spent quite a lot of money downloading titles.

There is something about purchasing a game in a shop which is brand new and sealed, and also having that new game smell.....too weird?

Not weird at all, my friend, and i absolutely agree with you on the former. It worries me too, which is one of the reasons I choose physical.

@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

FYE seems to have made the transition to clothing/action figure/weird anime stuff/etc. and so forth type of shop successfully and the demand for physical media for movies and music have been on a much sharper decline over the years than video games, lol.

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
