Definitely looking forward to the potential that Combat Manuals could bring, if only because it makes Askr trio merges a feasible possibility. Speaking of which I still haven't given Anna her refine and now I've got Celica to add to that list. Guess I should be careful what I wish for, I'll barely have enough refining stones to do both Anna and Celica's refines, and just a few months ago I was complaining about having 700+ stones with nothing to use Divine Dew for.
Realistically the problem won't be using so many refining stones though, it'll be finding things to use those stones on. Might be time to toss a Slaying Lance on Oscar for future Abyssal clears, or dump the Sack o' Gifts on Titania just to have something to refine.
