Paralogue & Nomination Rules:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/643003-fire-emblem-awakening/65755412
-------------------
Characters who start with Miracle and can learn Healtouch: Mariabelle

Characters who start with both skills: Brady, Morgan (from one of the two)

Characters who can learn either skill: Sumia, Kellam, Libra Cherche, Owain, Cynthia, Gerome, Avatar, Morgan.

Characters that can inherit the skills and class required: Lucina (Sumia, Avatar), Inigo, Kjelle, Severa, Yarne, Laurent, Noire, Nah.
------------------

Thankfully they buffed Exp gain from staves. It's usually not a big deal, and by that, I mean when you are not using Laura in FE10...


Miracle is a proc skill. It's activation rate is fittingly Luck%...but it will only have a chance of activating if the enemy's attack will "kill" you...as long as you have more than 1 HP. With all the requirements met, if it does activate, your character won't "die", but will be left with 1HP.

Well...there are quite a lot of requirements for this one to activate. Early on you will be dying more often but will have a lower chance of activating it, and the inverse gets more likely as your character gets stronger.

Personally, while it might save you, you never have to rely on this skill. Death in FE either needs to be avoided at all costs, or can happen freely, so this skill is really unnecessary. Having another skill to allow your character to survive longer would be better than this.

Nonetheless, reclasssing for this skill will leave your character in a risky situation; one that Lissa will make you put up with during earlygame. I give it a C rank, but just barely...


Healtouch restores 5HP to the user when healing allies.

Very straightforward. It's a like a pseudo-Stavefaire...but it's nowhere as useful. Can help with chip damage and HP level ups, but it's not reliable at all in dangerous situations. I give it a D rank.

B/C

Miracle is useful for Streetpass fights when people use Leathality to cover up the fact that their teams are terrible.

Healtouch I only see as useful for the Goddess Staff since it doesn't fully heal everyone but affects everyone.

Nominate: Relief.

A/B

Healtouch is amazing with Fort and Physic in general

Miracle has a lot of nice applications.
And it is Finn's signature ability, so bias point into A

I have no idea what happened to your skill access list but it isn't right.

Emmeryn starts with Magic +2 and Focus.

Maribelle can't learn either Miracle or Healtouch. Cleric isn't on her class list.

No I didn't sorry. I noticed Mariabelle was wrong straight away, since I second classed her about an hour ago. and then saw Emmeryn, listed as starting with Cleric skills and was trying to work out what happened.

(I'm pretty sure the idea with Emmeryn was too effectively give her the benefits of having Mage in her class set, the only thing she doesn't get is Dark Knight access. Although at least one other Spotpasss Character is odd: Yen'fay is a blade master but none of his other base classes use swords, only one of his other promotions do. He seems like he would have made more sense with Thief and Mercenary as his other 2 classes. )
