The higher the feral link % goes to, the higher your odds of getting the crystal are. Use a Twilight Odin. Zantetsuken gets to crazy % numbers.

The amount a feral link contributes is capped at 300%; Zantetsuken's high sync offers no particular advantage (although its high damage is an asset).

Find the highest damage FL that you can consistently sync at 300% or more, and set up a paradigm with that monster where neither Serah nor Noel will deal damage. That way you can guarantee that the FL is dealing the finishing blow. Past that, unless the monster shows up in a group, you're just hoping to get lucky.

Hmm....Cactuar is one of the easiest monsters to catch (33% base chance). You should double check your monster list if you've been at it as long as you say.
