Casca's whole life was about Griffith's dream (even if at the end she wanted Guts), I guess that even if Griffith did those horrible things to her and her camarades, she would let him go, otherwise their sacrifice would be meaningless or something along the lines.
But when the Skullknight told Guts he had to choose between her and his vengeance, after many fights and all, Guts understood that and chose Casca in the end. So at this point, he chose the path to simply live with her (doesn't mean it will stay like this). If it is really that way, THEN that would mean that Casca would be the one who would revenge on Griffith, or something else than a life with Guts at her side.
So I don't know how to interpret SkullKnight's predictions.

I thought that the reason why Casca perhaps wouldn't want to be healed, was because she would prefer to stay ignorant rather than go back to the horrible aftermath that she would live in. Having her previous meaning of life shattered and her spirit broken. I don't know if she can even make such a choice at this point. However I hope she comes back, I'm getting kind of tired of her hostility towards Guts and behavior of a 4 year old. It would be awesome to have her back on the team.
About Guts, yeah it seems pretty obvious that he will need some Elf magic at this point. He's completely screwed.
Berserk's main theme is causality though...Casca is the way she is for a reason. Something tells me the next arc won't simply be the ass-pull of having some Elven healer fixing her scrambled-egg brain. Something else has to come into it, a sacrifice...maybe Guts' Behelit? And? There's a lot of possibilities.
I think a lot of that has to do with him possibly stockpiling chapters to be released in a more prolonged period coinciding with the movie's release.
^ That would be awesome so pretty much he could have them done and have sometimes double chapters but yeah I think Miura would do that prob because of 2-3 weeks deadlines to be put in the mag. He does it all himself so it isn't going to always finish in two weeks unless he rushes it.
No chrissy present for me XD
I thought he said it himself in a audio interview on the final dvd of the anime. He also said he works 15 hours a day on it, sits in same spot eats there and its pretty messy. but that dvd i think was released 8 years ago or so.
Wolfsmund was an assistant.
There might have been a time when he didn't have any, but I doubt that lasted long. The 15 hours a day comment was from the Q&A so we can take him at his word there. Other than that, the assistant question is up in the air.
Well I look at this arc for it's overall story impact, perhaps the best thing we got from it is Guts fighting with the armor more, he may find a way to master it soon with the help of witch girl. If we can also look at this as a prelude to Elf Island or even an arc like the Lost Children one that did not effect the overall story much, so yeah maybe Miura imagined this arc as such.
The gap of power between Griffith is still ridiculously large. Something has to happen where he'll be able to stand toe to toe with him.
Yeah, Guts was so epic to get 1 metre close to Griffith any other human would of died being that close to the god hand. It makes me think though, Guts neck goes through lots of pain and tears up once he is close to the god hand and yet nothing happen to Caska when she was being raped. She is being touch by the god hand member and her mark isn't raging.
I guess the elf king will do some seal that surpasses the witch's one that makes them be able to fight the god hand without the pain coming from that mark. He will prob boost the dragon slayer so it can do fatal blows on them. Gut's dragon slayer couldn't cut the dragon apostle (shames the swords name then XD) so he kind of needs it to be able to cut anything instead of him finding a sweet spot on a body to cut.
