  • Academia: The Final Chapter

    1. Once you begin the area, go south, north, and then east. Check the cactuar stone to hit the checkpoint.
    2. Check Chocolina’s shop. She has new items! And all of a sudden, she is our best friend again :].
    3. Go north and then east to encounter Mimi. Then go north and cross the block to get to the western platform.
    4. Turn west and then go to the northwest platform. GO up the stairs to the north and tap the cactuar stone to reach the checkpoint.
    5. Go east and reach the platform to get a map of the current Academia world.
    6. Drop down to get to the last checkpoint. You will be doing this a lot. Go north and then board the block to reach the northwest platform.
    7. Go north, head downstairs, and grab the Shaman’s Mark. This will indicate you are going in the right direction.
    8. Turn south, go up the stairs, and wait for the block to connect to get to the southeastern platform.
    9. Turn around and wait for the block to connect to the northeastern stairs. Proceed to the platform with the yellow “!”.
    10. Two notes in this fight: Use deprotect and deshell on the Pacos. It is really important to make them stick. They will also revive each other when one of them is down. Try to finish them as quickly as possible.
    11. Fall down to the last cactuar checkpoint and use the block to the south. Cross over the southeastern platform and cross the eastern block to examine the cactuar stone for another checkpoint.
    12. Get on the stair block to the north when you can and go to the northeastern platform.
    13. Activate the next cactuar stone. Go up the stairs to the north and change the red cube to blue. Now go to the stairs to the south and go west to get to the northwestern platform.
    14. Go west to find another cactuar stone and then go north to reach the platform to your west. Flip the red cube to blue and then get aboard the eastern platform.
    15. Hit the cactuar stone to reach the checkpoint and make the red cube blue. Head north and west to reach the western platform, and then wait for another block to align and take you to the southwest platform.
    16. In the next area, hop on the platform to the north and quickly sprint to your east to reach the final platform. Chocolina’s shop is here, so buy any last minute things you need before the final onslaught.
    17. Go east and south until you reach the block of stairs to the southwest. On the western platform, there is a red cube. Head over there and examine it to turn it blue.
    18. Fall down to the last cactuar checkpoint and head on the block north of you for the final boss battles.
    19. Use Serah’s deprotect manually in the first battle against Chaos. Use your ravage attacks to finish off this first round quickly once you do that.
    20. When fighting Caius (you will have to do it a couple of times), keep in mind that his attacks are still the same as his previous ones. He does have an attack that leaves one of your characters with a bunch of status ailments. The key here is to know that Caius will only attack one character until you run out half of his HP. Use this knowledge to plan your paradigm pattern.
    21. The second time you fight Caius, De-protect and De-shell are very important. Make sure to poison him as well- this will counteract the Regen the boss has in effect throughout the battle. Attacking Caius and interrupting him as he is relaunching his attacks is the best way to stagger him. Once you do, unleash all hell and the battle is yours.
    22. The Bahamut trio is tough. You will have to take out the two in front, as they are casting haste, bravery, shell, and protect on the purple one. Focus your attacks on one of them at a time and get rid of them systematically.
    23. When you are down to the purple bahamut.. make sure to switch into a defensive paradigm when he launches his Gigaflare. The other two Bahamuts will revive if you don’t end the battle quickly enough.
    24. Enjoy the last cinematic action sequence! Congratulations on beating Final Fantasy XIII-2!

    this part was ing usless, no idea what to do after leaving this part, the whole point was a WALKTHROUGH step by step damnit, do it right or not at all, double check this , got my hopes up that there was a walkthrough already then this kept me stumped, got out of the void, then it gives me info on how to get more frags to unlock gates but doesnt tell me WHERE to go next

    @anon what would be the fun of the game if it told you where to go? Although it does tell you how many you have collected on that particular time.The secnod point of the game is exploration uou have to find and aquire the frags by doing sidequest misions.I have up to 159 frags now and the only one thats actually the bestiary fragment because t requires you to fight every single thing in the entire game :O
