As for what board to aim for ultimately, here's where we discuss that:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/951987-the-3rd-birthday/59508283

You'll quickly see what skills are universally used by everyone. Other topics have the same answers so I felt only one link was needed.

Skills max out at level 25, which no single node on the board can hit until you're level 53. They also have a lower chance to activate based on difficulty so that can affect things as well.

Difficulty affects that as well? Wow.

Afraid so. I remember there being a couple topics that talked about it as well, I'm sure they're archived somewhere. But I an a few others a while back tested out skill rate activation frequency to see if it was lower or the same on various difficulties and we kept finding that skills like Power Surge and Barrier won't show up nearly as often on insane as they do on say, easy or normal. I've had it for instance where I've gone entire episodes on Insane and Power Surge never activated.

Huh. In all my insane runs I've gotten used to the worst activation rate without realizing it.

In addition, a few skills seem to have priority over others. I made the mistake of having Healing and Antibody on one board. They activated more often than Restock.
