Battle Tips pt. 1 cheat for Final Fantasy XIII


Battle Tips pt. 1

With these tips, you will be able to handle pretty much any battle. These tips mostly pertain to random encounters, not bosses..."mostly".

1. Quickly Stagger enemies

Use the "Aggression" Paradigm until the target's chain gauge gets to about 30% filled. Once there, switch to the "Relentless Assault" Paradigm. The Ravager's will then significantly boost the chain gauge. Keep using this Paradigm until the target dies.

2. If you ever get low on health

If you ever get low on health (this means anyone in your party), switch to the Paradigm "Protection", "Diversity", "Combat Clinic", or "Hero's Charge". Afterwards, continue what you were doing.

3. Ultimate Chain Bonuses

To get a great chain combination (this also works for Eidolon battles that require you to get a bunch of chain bonuses), have the paradigm "Relentless Assault" become active. Select the actions you want to preform and wait for your allies to start attacking. Attack once your allies do and the target's chain gauge should go up a lot. It also helps if you have Hope as your leader as well. Have Hope use the "Quake" technique when your allies begin their attack. This will further extend the chain bonus.

4. Speed up the battle

When fighting multiple enemies, make sure you concentrate on getting rid of the small-fry first, then you can take on the big guys...if any. It also helps a lot if you have a Synergist that knows Haste... Such as Sazh.

5. Multi-Battles

When you have a bunch of other enemies attacking another enemy, attack the ones that are doing most of the attacking. You can also just wait for the offenders to take out the other enemy.

This is not entirely helpful as for each paradigm you only say the title it called. example: "Agression". what role does each person use? Com (Commando), com and Rav (ravager). if you can change this that would be great
