Cocoon has fallen! Kweh! Our game guide for Final Fantasy XIII-2 features an in-depth walkthrough covering equipment, monsters, abilities, and more!
Main Story Walkthrough: Augusta Tower 200 AF
Augusta Tower 200 AF, Enemies: Vespid Soldier, Zwerg Metrodroid, Flanitor, Orion, Dragoon
Return to the terminal that you couldn't access before. This time, with the Access Card in hand, a platform will raise from below and allow you to venture forth. Head east to talk to Alyssa. Turns out she's actually a duplicate. Head southeast through the room with Chocolina. Open the treasure sphere for a Twist Headband accessory. Run counter-clockwise from there and activate the terminal outside room #3. Access the computer inside this room for a side-quest, Find Paradox Agent Type A. Now, head to the middle ring and use the terminal across from Alyssa to create a path to the inner circle.
Talking to her will lead to a LTE:
I chose A.
Next, talk to Alyssa when she's on the elevator. She'll take you to the top floor of the tower. During your trip, you're forced into battle against a Vespid Soldier, Orion, and Zwerg Metrodroid. After that, there's another battle with three Vespid Soldiers and an Orion. These are all considered common enemies and are not necessarilly difficult. There's even a third fight; this time it's four Metrodroids and an Orion.
Then the Alyssa dissapears and you're left at the top of the tower. There are four terminals within the inner ring. Each one controls a different room on the map. You'll use every terminal to complete the paths on this floor of the map. Activate them as follows:
Toss mog of the NE corner to collect a Casino Ticket. Take the southeastern route and open the treasure sphere nearby for a Bloodguard accessory.Head to the other end to collect a Silence Gate Seal from the treasure cube towards the east. From here, begin to follow the path towards the goal using the previously rotated rooms. When you first get there, rotate the room with the small terminal inside so you can access the middle ring. After exploring that portion of the map, return to the room. When you get to the [!] marker, access the terminal at the desk. You'll acquire Access Key 52, and an activation panel will appear within the elevator.
Navigate back to the elevator and head for the 52nd floor. Once you get there, there's a LTE:
Head northwest towards room #3. Enter and go through the door on the right to get a treasure sphere containing 1450 Gil. Return to the inner circle and go southwest. Toss Mog to collect the treasure sphere with Eight Mana Engines in the center ring while facing north. If you do a 180 degree turn from there, you can explore the rest of the mid-ring to collect eight Vitality Orbs from a treasure sphere in the east. Continue through the southwest room. Toss Mog south to open the treasure sphere containing a Platinum Casino Ticket. Return to the room and use the terminal inside to rotate the room into the proper position. Use the southeast exit to grab a Magistrel Crest from the treasure sphere, then go through the other exit.
Go into the western room and rotate it twice. Use the eastern exit and then access the terminal on your left to rotate the next room into position. You are now in the outer ring, toss Mog southwest to collect 200 Gil from a treasure sphere. Next, run clockwise 'til you reach a deadend and a TS containing a Phoenix Blood item. After that, head into the room with the goal marker and access the computer for the Top Floor Access Key. With that in your posession, return to the elevator.
As you ride to the top floor, you'll encounter a Greater Behemoth. He looks formidable, but he's relatively easy. When he stands up, he begins to dish out physical attacks on your party, so perhaps bring a medic to the battlefield if you need to replenish your health. He's tameable, so if your lucky, you might catch him for personal use.
Once on the top floor, you'll find Chocolina to the N. In front of her is a treasure sphere with three Potions. Head up the stairs right next to her to continue your pursuit of Caius. At the top, you'll see a gate, and Yeul in the middle of the room.
Before you head over there, consider levelling up your party. I did not at the point, but it might be a good idea if you've accumulated a lot of CP.
Now, head towards Yeul and she'll hand you an Artefact. You'll enter the gate and reappear in the middle of a large circular room. All of a sudden, you're attacked by the Proto Fal'Cie, Adam.
Start by taking out the left and right manipulators with magic. After that, focus on staggering Adam. For a boss, he'll go down rather easily. Of course, this was only the first round.
In round 2, he'll buff himself and the manipulators. When he casts Gate of Babylon, switch to a Sentinel centric paradigm as quickly as you can. If you fail to beat him during the first stagger of this fight, he'll regenerate the manipulators. In my case, his health was low eough where I could ignore the sidekicks and finish him off. If his health is still high, take out the manipulators so you aren't overwhelmed.
|Xbox 360: Right, Up, Right, B, Tap A, Right, Tap A|
|PlayStation 3: Right, Up, Right, Circle, Tap X, Right, Tap X|
Perfecting the CAS nets you a Crystal Apple adornment.
Choose option 3.
Once that's done, take the Artefact of Rebirth Yeul gave to you, and enter the gate to unlock Academia 4XX AF.
Hi... Im stuck at Lvl 15 Augusta Towers AF300. Done everything there, But terminal in middle room says ''Need lvl 13 key, in other time period'' or similar. Also I have no A- Towers AF200, in the Historia Crux. Arrrrgh? Help.Also I cant throw Moogle.Cheers.
regarding the tomato thing, do I have to start over if after getting the black hole gem and the tomato is not mutant?
@shademalkovich There is more than 1 Oerba. there is 200AF, 300AF & 400AF. Not unlocked them all yet but you must be able to reach the water in 300 or 400AF
Also how to you get to the other side? there is usually a Chocobo to help but i can't find one you can ride. where treasures 14,15,16 and 21 are.
you have to use the way stones in the shape of cactaurs.the weather has to be the way it was when you first got there to find the way stone to the other side, n Mog has to find it.
I killed the faeryl in archylte, n I have the black hole gem, but when I went back to sunleth, the frigging tomato was still royal, not mutant! what do i do?
@smurf6 if you have already been to 200AF it will be unlocked in the Historia Crux.. press the start button and click the top one "return to Historia Crux' and look around and you will find it.
Cant get to academia? Beat the giant tomato thingy and have all the fragments. Still it hasn't been unlocked. What do I do?
@LiFERACE Go to The Void Beyond and travel through the space distortion. it's orange i thing on the top of the stairs ti the East.
The weapon Sacred Cross is not "just north of the gate" its miles north of the gate, its at the opposite end of the western section of the map (where as the gate is in the furthest south-westerly position on the map).Make sure you realise this before proceeding. If you assume like i did it will be near the gate its not. youll have to go to the north of the western section first by the 3 toppled pillars marked on the map and then to the very south west to the gate.
You already have Beta and Gamma NOT Alpha and Gamma as stated at the top of the page. So you need alpha, delta and epsilon if you are using this guide ;)
tell me how can you have 4 paradigms for monsters when you only get a paradigm pack of 3? You have Ravager, Commando, Sentinel and Medic roles for the monsters in the table above but this is surely not possible.
@Bulletrush12 Some monsters, much like Noel and Serah, they can have more than one paradigm. Behemoths can be Commandos or Ravagers. Cait Siths can be medics or commandos. Sometimes three. It depends on if they are late bloomers, well grown, or early bloomers.
first id like to say thanks for making this guide its helped me a lot. however im now a bit confused. When I went through the gate after collecting the artefact in waterscape I was given the options:
This guide helped a lot for myself and my husband. We enjoy the FF series, and he had gotten stuck in XIII-2 at Augusta 200AF the first time through, not sure where to go to use the Wild Artifact. ^^ This is a great guide.
This is turning out to be a game of little content, certainly not up to the level of FF#13. I can't recall another FF this shallow. On the positive side - IT'S FINAl FANTASY - STILL THE BEST RPG SERIES EVER.
Thanks Doc Brown...I apologize and to tell you the truth i followed your stradegy with maxing out Noel as a commando and serah as Ravager and been breezing threw the bosess like nothing. Great walkthrough
Interesting opinions Fuego...Anyway, since you asked, you get it from the Mystic in Serendipity. You can acquire it after the conclusion of Episode 5. Our fragment skills page listed under primers has the requirements for each skill.
I should have not been cheap this time around and bought the strategy guide...by the time they finish this walkthrough ill already have beaten Final Fantasy XIII-3, and be playing Final Fantasy XIII Verses
You think you can silence me Gamespot! this walkthrough is amateur at best. IGNs is much better! and no i do not work for IGN....TIME AND SPACE!!!!!
if you have troubles with the clock puzzles check out the on-line solver that I've made for them: http://clockpuzzle.pl/
@mkrool Check back this evening (Pacific time) for the completion of Episode 4. Episode 5 will wrap up tomorrow, with the final Episode going up on Friday.
this guide stops exactly where i have lol would love if u could put guide up bout where to go after u see caius in augusta tower and u need key 50
Hey could you add what you are putting your points into in the crystarium, You stoped letting us know what are you leveling into and what you take when the crystarium levels up for your characters after Oerba. Thanks, Otherwise great job on the guide so far, I hope you finish it soon. :)
damn gamespot you bozos are slow as sh*t..only up to episode 3 part one. Like an idiot i followed your walkthrough not knowing it was complete till i got to the end of yaschas massif. but then i finally came to my senses and went to IGN where they not only had a complete walkthrough, but a complete wiki on everything ffxiii-2. Step your sh*t up gameFLOP
OH GOD, NOT ANOTHER WALKTHROUGH!!! Gamespot diddnt even finish the skyrim walkthough, and all they have to do its stupid stuff like achievements, and the parts that are done, are really awfully written. Its very disappointing.
