    Seems like someone told me no before, but I can't recall. Does wiping before restoring do anything or is it just needless wiping?

    It never hurts to wipe cache and dalvik.

    It use RZR and it explicitly says it is wiping each partition before it restores it.

    I wipe data, cache, and dalvik all the time. Just a habit plus it doesn't hurt.

    makes no difference, look what it says in recovery when u restore a nandroid-- "clearing cache, clear boot img" etc, everything is written into the code
