The easiest way to beat a heavy weight enemy is to stagger them.

A great Paradigm set up is this.
1:Attacker, healer, supporter
2:Attacker, magic, healer
3:Attacker, Magic, Magic
4:Magic, Magic, Magic
5:Healer Healer Healer.

Use the first one as a set up, supporter will up attack, cast haste ETC, while attacker attacks and healer heals. After the supporter is done, switch to the second paradigm. When you stagger it, go to the 3 paradigm stated above. Everyone will attack, and do great damage. Hope this helps.

First, an Adamanchelid is just classified as an Oretoise. Second, to unleash the "heavyweight," you need to complete missions in the Archylte Steppe. (the Cie'th Stones will be arranged in a circle) When you have completed those 6 or 7 missions, the fal'Cie Titan will release new creatures to replace the Adamanchelid AND the Adamantortoise. This is when the heavyweight can be challenged, but be careful. Unless you have a maxed out Crystarium, you probably won't stand a chance. I'm actually stuck on one of the required missions right now, so I can't give you much info after that. But I think your target has over 15 million HP. And it closely resembles Adamantortoise, and I believe it has the same attack pattern, except I think it can cast Ultima. Does that help?

Ragnarok, Come day of wrath, O Pulse l'Cie. Embrace thy fate, thine home to burn, That fallen souls might bear our plea, To hasten the Divine's return, O pitious wanderer, Ragnarok. Make of this day a brave epoch, Deliver the Divine, Ragnarok.

Ignore that last bit about Ragnarok. I just can't get that out of my head. It's been awhile since I fought Barthandelus in Oerba, so I don't know why I still remember it. X)

Hey, I just got the last mission, Mission 62 Indomitable Will, completed. And I've taken down the "heavyweight." Your target is called Long Gui, and it looks like a blueish-green Adamantoise. It has 16,200,000 HP, and its legs have 1,080,000 HP. They're only resistant to physical and magical attacks, and the legs are vulnerable to Deprotect, Deshell, Imperil, and Poison. The main body is vulnerable to Slow at the start, but when it falls it becomes vulnerable to Deprotect, Imperil, Deshell, Curse, and Poison. It starts with either Quake or Ultima so start with the Tortoise (SEN/SEN/SEN) paradigm.

I used Fang (leader), Hope, and Vanille for this battle, and they have mastered 4 of 6 roles. (Fang is 5 roles, COM, RAV, SEN, SAB, and SYN) Vanille and Hope have 3 tier weapons, (ultimate weapons) Vanille the Debuffing rod, lv. 33, and Hope the Critical Shield. lv 28, and Fang has the Calamity Spear lv 37. She also has the Genji Glove.

My paradigm setup is as follows;
1 Cerberus (COM/COM/COM)
2 Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV)
3 Smart Bomb (SAB/RAV/RAV) /Assassination (SAB/RAV/SAB) for poison (Leader Vanille)
4 Rapid Growth (SYN/SYN/SYN)
5 Tortoise (SEN/SEN/SEN)
6 Discretion (COM/MED/MED)

Before battle use Aegisol and Fortisol. Start with 5, then switch to 6 until fully healed. Then switch to 3 and cast debuffs, (make sure to cast Slow on Long Gui) switch to 4 to cast Enfire. Switch to 6 if you need to heal then to 2 to fill up the chain gauge for one of the legs. Keep attacking then when the gauge is about to empty, use Highwind switching to 1 before Fang hits for extra damage. Then back to 6 for healing. Switch to 5 if it uses Quake, Ultima, or Roar. If it Roars, it clears up its Debuffs so watch out. If the battle runs too long, it casts Doom. Use an Eidolon whenever you see fit. Using the Assassination paradigm with Vanille the leader may help. Summoning an Eidolon makes Long Gui collapse. Hecatoncheir is the only Eidolon to have a Skill that costs only 1 point. When summoning Hecaton, as Vanille calls it, cast your debuffs to fill up the Gestalt Gauge. Before Hecaton's gauge runs out make sure to renew Poison then enter Gestalt Mode. With the right timing it should be at 30 points. Le the meter drop to almost empty before using Chain Cannons. Let the meter drop again before using Chain Cannons, By doing this, you allow the Poison to drastically weaken your foe to cause the majority of damage in Gestalt Mode. Continue the strategy above until Long Gui has succumbed to the Poison. It should take about 7.5 minutes if done correctly. I didn't have Elixer but if you have it, use it to restore your TP to summon again when it gets back up.

Sooo sorry for the long answer, but I hope this helps!
