So in the Lightning DLC vs Caius,I've searched and watched and read and searched and watched and read...etc..etc but i can five star him, im on my 16th try now. I'm level 6, but i can never take any less then 8:24, i've watched a few videos showing you can juggle him but when i attempt it he drops as soon as his stagger is gone, he also NEVER gets a protect debuff, its either stop or attack and magic down. my usual over all score is 8:24, 80-85% health the 4000.0 offset and score of 35642, im doing the spam cycle of Shaman and Mage, mighty gaurd and paladin when it needs it and i aura a bit before he is staggered and sorcerer to use chaos right as he staggers but it just wont happen for me, i know that if i can just get that last damn star i'll be able to take out the final battle but i just need help getting there.

Have you tried following the advice detailed here? -- http://etrosgate.com/ffxiii-2/dlc/rotg/power-walkthrough

If so, and you're still having problems, do you understand the different techniques that are described, and are you encountering any troubles trying to use them? Is there something else in the fight that's causing issues?

Its tedious, I beat him at Lv1 but I didn't even get a 5 star. You really need to be time specific and switch according to his paradigm. I think Lv8 is a threshold to 5 star him and the Chaos Bahamut.

You can 5-star the fight on any level except possibly level 10.

I did it at level 8. I open with Shaman to have my ATB charge up fast, then switch to Conjurer + Aura, then Paladin to fix the stagger gauge. After that, just alternate Shaman/Mage (Shaman if Caius is Ravager, Mage if he's Commando; as for Bahamut, just use the element that it's not resisting) until he staggers. Utilizing the ATB refresh trick also helps. The Saboteur-like role helps, but you can do without it.

I actually found this late last night, got to Chaos Bahamut however when i get him to low health, he is a complete d***, he will come close to me but not attack till i switch to paladin and begin to attack him to keep the stagger gague. Then once i actually stagger him when its time he attacks quite frequently and im unable to actually damage him during his stagger because he either interrupts me or he knocks me into the air.

That video is kinda bad. It takes him about 2 minutes longer than what it should at level 9.

Doesnt matter how long it takes him, the strategy of it works, i beat it quicker and with more health then he did but i still used his strategy and got 5 stars and Lightning. which is what is important, right?
