I know a few places where you can farm crystogen points up to teijin tower (gran pulse, chapter 11) when you fight dahaka.
I will put what you fight in it (cant put how many CP you get I forgot)and what roles to have with people ( reccomended, what I used)
Nautilus park: sazh & vanille in the clock tower 2nd save point (COM, MED) take out the zwergs and the orions( for the superconductors
The palamecia: fang, lightning, vanille (COM, RAV, MED) before the first fight with barthundalas go up and down the room killing people ( sell incentive chips and but crankshafts for upgrading wepons)(do not use the librascope here, you will need it for barthundalas fight).
(forgot name): fang lightning vanille (COM, RAV, MED) befor the fight with hecatonchier go to the boxed phalanx and take out them up to the big ice cubes at the start and return ( earns about 25k CP).
Wait until Lightning (or another Commando (Snow, Lighning or Fang only) knocks the enemy into the air and finish thier combo. Then unleash your combo and by the time you come down the other commando will be back up and using thier combo. The Ravanger will also be keeping the enemy in the air which is good because your characters take a while to fall. (This technique is best done with a Commando, Commando, Ravanger class.
Your Welcome in advance
So you guys want to beat the man named after the imfamous Cid thats dates back to Final Fantasy's long history
Use Snow (Sentinal), Lightning (Commando) and Vannile (Medic) this will sponge his agressive shift
When he shields or heals go into the paradigm >>> (forgot name) (Snow (Ravanger), Lightning (Commando), Vanille (Ravanger)) and work on the chaining then when he goes back to offensive shift then go back to Solidarity (Above)... It will take a while but if you stagger him before lightning goes insane and beats him to a pulp then switch to (Snow (Commando), Lightning (Commando), Vanille (Ravanger) then you can juggle the guy till he's dead.
Clock Tower is the place to be! It's in Nautius Park after Sazh says he's going to turn himself in. Save then fight your way through the bad guys until you come to the 2nd Save point. When you pull up your Map the destination is dead ahead, but I always look for all the times :D if you go West of the 2nd save point you will find a large group of Zwerg Metrodroids. They are kinda strong at first so you wont be able to beat them in the 6-10 sec that I can now after 2-3 of training lol, but after you beat them they give you 650 CP. Now instead of saving and restarting that process over and over becuz that'll take to much time, head East of the save point. Make a sharp right, sharp left and another sharp right. If you deffeated the ememies you wont have to again as long as you keep moving. (they will respond after you save so I would advise to keep training for as long as you like) Now there will be another Zwerg Metrodroid right next to and item (you should have already gotten the item IMO), beat him and that's another 128 CP I think. Now just go back to the huge group of Zwerg Metrodroids and repeat as much as you like. Once you get strong enough you should be getting around a few thousand CP in about 10 mins lol. If anyone know's of anything better just let me :D thanks!
Ok so I have been getting a lot of questions from people latley on how you beat the boss known as Odin, so for everyone I'm going to tell you how I did it, and it's pretty simple actually, and it only took me two minutes to beat him:
Ok when going to battle with Odin your going to want to have Hope as Sypt, that way he can get your team shell, protect etc. The beginning for the fight is the most difficult part of the whole fight because when Odin first strikes you as soon as the fight starts it can kill you in like one hit, if not pretty close. So you want to have Hope as Sypt. As for you, "Lightning" your going to want to have your self as Medic. Ok now that you have survived the first hit by Odin you should be alright, switch Hope to Revanger and have him attack Odin, Odin will focus on Hope because he is the only one that is attacking him.
As the fight is going on between Odin and Hope, you heal Hope as he is fighting with Odin, and basiclly Hope will win the fight for you. Also when Odin goes into that sheild formation where he is just standing there and not attacking, it's ok to switch Lightning into Revanger as well, it will put Odins bar up and make it a lot easier to win the fight if you to work together. But as soon as he starts attacking again switch Lightning back to Medic. Odins bar will mostly go up if Hope is attacking him, once his bar is filled up, just push the "X" button and you will win the fight. Afther you in the fight Odin will act as your guardian, and you can summon into battle and have him fight for you.
Another easier way to beatting Odin is to push the left bumper on the controller and select the item that casts things such as Shell and Protect, and when you go into battle with Odin you will have Shell and Protect already activated and you won't need Hope as Sypt, so there for you can just have Hope as Revanger.
I hope this helps you guys out.
Always remeber to change your Paradigms when you need your medic. Remeber when the screen flashes red your near about dead.
Alright, I had a lot of my friends ask me how to beat this guy! So, I'm going to do this for them! If you keep getting your butt whoopped listen. Set your Party leader to Lightning, the other two should be a sentinal and a medic( I used Snow for my sentinal and Vannille for my medic). Make sure Lightning is a commando. It should be the Paradigm Solidarity. Lightning will attack him while your sentienal takes Raine's blows. Also your medic will feed you the sweeeet cures you need to last. Now take note this is not the only way to beat him and this way takes awhile, but it works!
You get variuos items in the game that are used to upgrade accesories and weapons, but some are made to sell! Sell anything that has chip behind! Example would be credit chip!
At the begining of FF13 I always sold my items. But later on in the game you discover the upgrade weapons and items system. Just a tip do not sell all your items. Some give your weapons an insane amount of Experience!
The key move is to use your sentinel If you have one! They draw all the enemys atttention and are able to take a great amount off damage! Remeber that sometimes a great offense is a great deffense!
I know that a lot of Final Fanatasy XIII players get aggervated when the keep getting their butt handed to them by certain engagements. See the way you win is strategy. Don't try to muscle everything out. Use different Paradigms. Always think before you move. Please try and not autobattle everything! I promise things are a lot easier if you plan!
