I just got the Platinum Trophy for Final Fantasy XIII, and am only now inserting Final Fantasy XIII-2 for the first time.
I want to know something: does this game have annoying farmspots like the first game did? I couldn't stand relying on luck to get the Platinum Ingots to drop at Eden Hall on FFXIII, but I finally did it at 190 hours............... Seriously, that's unacceptable. There should be emphasis on skill and being tested in how well you understand the battle system, not luck and probability in hoping that ingots and traps drop.
Please let me know. Thanks.

No need to criticize my methods of FFXIII Platinum, I'm asking about FFXIII-2 here. These questions are important!
Two points: 1) I did answer your question. 2) I wasn't criticizing your methods, I was criticizing your tone. If your choices about how to play a game lead to results that you find unsatisfactory, and then you blame those results on the game instead of on your choices, you deserve to be called out. Granted, the Treasure Hunter trophy is grindy, and more so than it needed to be, but it's nowhere near 190 hours worth of grindy.
In any case, I hope you enjoy XIII-2 more than you enjoyed XIII. And at some point, you might enjoy going back to XIII and taking on some of the challenges that are designed to avoid grinding in any form.
