Oh my god, I've killed about 50 Adamantortoises and got 2 Traps.

Well, you're farming for Gil really, and you'll be farming for a while. They'll come. Remember, once you're done with absolutely everything, you can * and dismantle your Genji Gloves for 1 each.

These results are quite reasonable, actually. If you really killed 50, your Ingot count is a little low. It's good progress, though.

Do Long Guis have a higher drop rate? I don't think so....

I got real comfy fighting Adamantortoises (obviously) so I went after a Long Gui and it cast Ultima and killed me in one go. So, I dunno, I'll tackle them later.

All I have left for Achievements in Treasure Hunter, Killing the final boss with 5 stars, 5-Starring all the Cie'th Stones and felling a Long Gui, so yep. Then there's all the personal 100% stuff after that, like filling my inventory with one of everything, maxing all weapons and so on, but that's just gravy.

Long Guis have five times the Trapezohedron drop chance that Adamantortoises have. The Platinum Ingot drop chance is slightly lower, but only because you are more likely to get a Trapezohedron.

You need Sen/Sen/Sen for Long Guis (or a Summon, but that's kind of lame for farming). You definitely shouldn't farm them until you finish collecting gil. There's no point.

I'm on my last mission to 5-star right now, and let me just personally say, good luck with mission 64>.< You shouldn't have the issues I had though.

Anyway, then I need to fight the Gui brothers, move on to Ch.12, finish the game and start my farming...bring it on.

Ah, I haven't even tried that guy yet. I keep hearing about whatta bastard he is, so I'm just powering up weapons for now. They say Poison will kill him, thought won't get you 5 stars...to do that I'll have to fight him evenly, which should be...fun.

I beg to differ; Poison will most definitely get you 5-stars. I just did it today, without landing a single blow outside of my summon's Gestalt mode (and that was simply to buy me some time for Poison to do its job). I won in 16 minutes on Poison alone, with a target time of 26 mins. You'll have the HP to attack too, which I didn't have the luxury of. Constant Poison will still be a must in your fight too though. If you do it my way, the only weapons you'll need are:

Snow - Solaris (Umbra at T2)

Everybody else - Any lvl 1 weapon to raise the target time.

Try it out, but remember, were here to help. We just had a huge ordeal trying to get me through it, so it's fresh in all our minds. Report back with your progress.

Good luck!
