So, I know that this could be effective if I just learn how to use in properly. Am I supposed to whip it out when an enemy is staggered, or something cause' I whipped it out for the lulz as soon as I got it and I was pretty disappointed by the results.
You're supposed to use it on a staggered enemy to increase the chain gauge --- FF XIII-2 Hype Meter: 2600% Aqua's Ultimate Levelling spot: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/943347-kingdom-hearts-birth-by-sleep/58514176
Yeah. You use it only when an enemy is staggered and it drives up the chain gauge a lot. Also, if you change to a Commando role during the animation of Ultima Arrow, it does more damage and still drives up the chain gauge.

No, considering that Noel has more strength than Serah and that Meteor Javelin was made specifically to be used in the commando role. The damage formula is also different --- FF XIII-2 Hype Meter: 2600% Aqua's Ultimate Levelling spot: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/943347-kingdom-hearts-birth-by-sleep/58514176
How helpful is this tactic on end game bosses? Is it worth waiting for the entire gauge to fill up, or am I just better off just going with three ravagers? I hear Caius gets pretty damn brutal towrds the end. (AND YOU CAN ONLY USE IT ONCE?!)
