Chapter 12 Eden, Farming the adamantoise

Party setup - Vanille(Saboteur), Fang(Saboteur), and Hope or Sazh (Synergist)

Equipment - ATB+ items on Vanille , Collector's catalog

Method - just have vanille summon right of the bet to disable the adamantoise's leg, then just spam death until he dies

***Keep in mind that Death actually has a very low chance to hit, you can increase that by casting Vigilance + Haste on vanille and Curse on the adamantoise. that way i can kill a adamantoise almost every try(max 3)****

You have a chance of getting a platinum ingot ( Sells for 150,000 ea) or a Trapezohedron (worth 2,000,000 for upgrades)
as well as 40,000 xp.

Noted - This can also be done with a weak party

... no point farming him till you get rare item ring and double cp ring, instead of 40,000, you get 80,000

I don't think the Oretoises are any good for CP farming. Too much risk vs. CP output. I prefer running through Mah'habara and OHKOing the weak enemies in this one loop, gets me about 44,000 CP every 5 minutes or so. I heard there was an even better strip in that location too.

Also, why do people use Eden for Oretoise farming? Why not kill the 4 in the Archylte Steppe?
Why do so few people know what "Irony" means?

it is ideal for gil but not a great xp spot

risk vs reward vs time it isn't as good as the two biggies fighting that everyone also knows about...

for money this is a good setup

i agree, adamantoise is only good when you need to farm a Trapezohedron or maybe some platinum ingot, the 40000 xp is like a bonus to me lol
