Finished XIII. Starting XIII-2. What should I know?

I'll start by saying I'm a completionist. If anything is missable or can be messed up in anyway then I'd like to know. Beyond that, what guide here would be best to follow treasure collection wise? I prefer guides with item checklists at the beginning of each section if there are any. Beyond that, I'm willing to listen to any advice the board has.

You should definitely look at the Crystarium guide. How you level determines some of your stat gains, so you can't optimize your stats if you don't know the rules.

Check the Crystarium Guide.

There are no actual missable things in this game, because you can enter an unlocked area at any time and even, with the proper Gate Seal, wind time backwards and replay the Storyline parts of that area.

Maybe look at the Monster Guide to see where and which ones the One-Time-Only monsters are.

Depending on how much of a completionist you are, you might want to avoid the one-time monsters that you get outside of battle. You can pick them up from Valfodr and then get them from Mog/ a treasure sphere to have 2 of them (or four for the chocobos).
