just because the HERO was the one doing the fighting doesn't mean that nobody else did anything. there IS such things as relief efforts after all. besides, the hero wasn't the ONLY one ever fighting. the guarians were very commonly involved in alot of the struggles. that AND people did suffer throughout the entire time. alot more than they do in book 3. plus they didn't feel as SAFE as they do currently in book 3.
as for the holidays, again, the whole time slip thing we were talking about a while back. most of the holidays happened sort of outside the main timeline, kind of like titans of battleon did. and the training to be a chef and blacksmith things probably aren't canonically part of the story. the only misc. skill that IS technically canon is fishing, due to it being required to do the water orb saga.
Is the king really with more constants things to deal with then the hero?
...uhhh, yes. that's kind of 90% of being a king. having to lead your people pretty much every waking hour. this includes passing laws, enforcing taxes, managing funding for everyone on your payroll(in other words, every single one of the pactogonal knights, and pretty much every noble that serves under him), sentencing criminals to whatever punishment he deems necessary, and, most of ALL in alteon's case, managing resources for relief efforts to deal with the aftermath of every conflict that the hero tries to resolve. alteon(and technically every king ever) has literally an entire kingdom worth of things to deal with EVERY DAY OF HIS LIFE. the only reason this is lessened NOW, is because the rose has taken like, a third of those respinsibilities upon themselves.
