Tameable Monsters (Continued)

Monster Development

Like Serah and Noel, the monsters all have their own Crystarium that you invest using Monster Materials. Each has at least one expansion, giving a bonus, that you should consider carefully. Here are some suggestion.

Commandos and Ravagers This really depends on the individual monster. Take into account the speed of it. Faster monsters could always use more ATB gauge and slower monsters take so long to fill that the bonus is usually more beneficial.

Sentinels and Saboteurs You should almost always pick the bonus for these since it will improved their overall use in battle.

Synergists and Medics Always pick an extra ATB for these guys first expansion so they can do more in battle, since they can cast more than just one 2 segment spell. The second expansion, if they have one, is less critical.

.

In order to determine how many expansions your monster will have, you need to take into account what level they can reach. You can tell this by the monsters description, in the status window. See the following:

TermMeaning
Early PeakerReaches a maximum level of 20.
Well-GrownReaches a maximum level of 30-60.

.

When using Monster Materials to develop your tamed monsters, you need to take into account which materials and which notes you will be using them on. In general, Potent items are just plain BETTER than all the other materials. The reason for this is that the bonus it gives is for ALL stats versus any one stat. In other words, say you want to improve Magic, well you can. You can also improve HP, Strength, etc.

This isn't to say to say that non-Potent materials aren't useful. Here are some cases where they are:

  • Sentinels do not have need for any bonus except HP, so Vitality materials are best here.
  • There is no need to spend Potent materials on a monster you only plan on using for infusion purposes.

.

Monster Abilities and Infusion

Because certain monsters can learn only certain abilities, the use of infusing another crystal into them to gain those abilities is desired. There are two types of abilities that you can infuse: Role Abilities and Passive Abilities.

.

Infusion of Role Abilities

By default, every monster grants at least one role ability. You should always prioritize and avoid certain skills and not just infuse everything. Decide what kind of role they will be, for example an Offensive Synergist versus a Defenesive one. This keeps your Paradigm Pack very specific and makes sur ethey cast exactly what you desire when bringing them out.

Make sure you note that infusing monsters of different roles will not result in the infusion of role abilities. This does not mean you will never infuse across roles, as passive abilities can be infused.

The following is a list recommended Role Abilities you may want to infuse:

The following is the few hidden Role Abilities that can be passed on:

RoleAbilityRequirements
CommandoJeopardizeInfuse a COM with a developed RAV with a cumulative total of at least 99 levels.

.

The following is the non-infusable Role Abilities that you may want to take note of for certain battle strategies:

MedicCheerAll Medics except Exoray, Haguma, White ChocoboBoosts the Feral Link gauge.

Note: If you are leveling a monster purely for infusion, don't use Potent materials. You need these for your final monsters.

Infusion of Passive Abilities

Unlike Noel and Serah, who only learn passive abilities through equipment, your pets can be infused with passive abilities to help boost their overall usefulness. Make sure you note that monsters can only possess 10 passive abilities at a time.

While they can generally be passed on freely between any two monsters, there are certain rules and restrictions:

  • Red-locked abilities can not be infused and take up those vital 10 slots.
  • Every passive ability has a hidden rank. This is used to replace low ranked abilities with higher ones if you reach the max 10 slots and try and overwrite abilities.
  • It is possible to lock passive abilities from being erased during infusion by inheriting them multiple times. This will cause them to be yellow-locked. Yellow-locked abilities can be inherited, but will remain and cannot be replaced.

.

Noteworthy Monsters

Before I start, let me take a moment to address chocobos. With the exception of Gold and Silver, these are the only monsters you can have more than one crystal of. With true Late-Bloomer stats and level 99 caps, they can give any Paradign Pack configuration a run for its money. If you choose your best two chocobos and infuse them with Pack Mentality, via the one time use Chichu and Nanochu, they will get added stat boosts when in a Paradigm Pack together.

.

Commandos

Chichu

A popular choice based on the GameFAQ forums, this guy has extraordinary high raw Strength stats, fast attacks, and the Armor Breaker ability.

Dragoon

The most cost-effective monster in the entire game, this guy comes Adrenaline, Blindside, Feral Speed II, Attack: ATB Charge II, and Armor Breaker. While not great for ultimate bosses, he is great at keeping your Chain Gauge charged while your main members do other things. You will probably want to use Power items to increase its Strength for part of its crystarium.

Red Chocobo/Golden Chocobo

Great base for infusing whatever and both have great potential and different advantages. These are only really useful if you are going for the chocobo set. Golden Chocobo is also the second best chocobo for racing.

Tonberry/Don Tonberry

Amazing balanced COMs, they can be good for both magic and melee damage. They also have high resistances that make up for their low HP. Add onto the fact that they have a low cost (unlike Odin) and speedy attacks, these guys can be great COM's. Of the two, the regular Tonberry is slightly better, due to Don Tonberry's Perpetual Poison (which has annoyed many people on the forums).

Twilight Odin

Possibly the most costly crystarium, it is extremely expensive to max out. Once maxed though, his raw stats are almost the best. On the other hand, his awful cast speed makes him a poor Magic-based COM and you will probably want a backup for Physical resistant enemies (since he doesn't have Armor Breaker).

.

Ravagers

Apotamkin

Extremely useful with decent stats for when it becomes available. With all the basic elemental spells and access to the top tier spells as well, in addition to Item Collector and Gilfinder II, it is extremely useful.

Blue Chocobo

You should infuse it with anything it doesn't inheritenly learn, including the passive Role Resonance (and Pack Mentality if you plan to make a chocobo-based Paradigm Pack).

Cloudburst/Debris

The best overall RAVs, make sure you get the ATB +1 on them at some point (preferably first).
Cloudburst has good HP growth, while Debris takes half damage from physical attacks and all elements. Cloudburst is the better of the two, with access to Friendly Fire (Feral Link), which you will love for low damage enemies. In the end, you will probably want to use Cloudburst for Ice and Wind, while using Debris for Fire and Lightning. Make sure to infuse both with Chain Bonus Boost II (from Pink Lily).

.

Sentinels

Pulsework Knight

Easy to max out and will probably be your first SEN. It comes with HP +25% which you can infuse to your later SEN. Not as useful in later gameplay, especially when you have access to the Armadillos.

Bunkerbeast

Probably your best choice for a long-term SEN, it learns Challenge early and has a final high raw HP. You should infuse it with Mediguard asap from the Pulsework Knight.

.

Sabotuers

Black Chocobo/Chelicerata/Necrosis/Dendrobium

Improved Debuffing is the reason these guys are worthwhile, but Dendrobium is cheaper to level. Simply infuse any status ailments missing from their learned abilities and you will have an all-around good SAB. Not that you will be using them much.

.

Synergists

Amanojaku

Infusion fodder for En-type spells. Make sure you recatch this guy each time you use him so you can be ready to infuse him whenever.

Yakshini

Your best choice for an offensive SYN, its fairly cheap. Infuse it with all the En-type spells from Amanojaku to increase its ability set. This is a good final SYN if you don't plan to do chocobos (or if you do and just don't care about having all chocobos for all Paradigm Shift sets.

Thexteron/Gancanagh Ace

Similar monsters except that Thexteron learns Bravery and Bravega, while Gancanagh Ace has Faith and Faithga. This allows you to enhance a single damage type depending on your party. In general, having two seperate SYN for magic or melee buffs will help you get the specific buffs you want for certain weakness enemies.

Purple Chocobo

If you're going for the chocobo set, this will be your choice for SYN, but given the advantage of narrowing your SYN's buffs you will probably want to keep one of the previous SYN.

.

Medics

Caterchipillar

This is the sole natural bearer of the passive skill Resist Elements +30% and therefore infusion fodder. Believe me, this is really useful.

Flanitor

This will become your first MED of any real use. It learns Cura, Esunada, and Improved Cure II.

Green Chocobo

This is the best candidate for a top tier MED. Be sure to infuse it with Esuna and Esunada from Flanitor. You should also infuse it with Feral Speed II. I used this for about 70% of my game and it was perfect.

I used the above, but that does not mean they are the ONLY ones you can use. There are plenty of other options and personal preferences, but these are what I used based on Piggybacks suggested monsters.

Suggested Crystarium Builds

These are the suggested builds by Piggyback that maximize the Strength or Noel and the Magic of Serah. You can choose a more balanced version if you want by using the follow list of bonuses for each role on a large node:

Commando

  • +2 Strength

Ravager

  • +2 Magic

Sentinel

  • +6 HP

Saboteur

  • +2 Stength (on even levels)
  • +2 Magic (on odd levels)

Synergist

  • +6 HP (on even levels)
  • +2 Magic (on odd levels)

Medic

  • +6 HP

If you "mess up", don't freak out. The bonus is minimal and if you really care, try reseting your game before you load into a new area and get an auto-save.

Bestiary

Normally, the Bestiary is useless unless a game requires you to get every enemy in the database, but Final Fantasy XIII-2 has made me actually care about the enemies by adding Tameable Monsters.

Let's quickly go over how to read this section.

HabitatThe map(s) where you can encounter this enemy.
TameableThe Role and chance to tame an enemy.
HPMax Hit Points.
StrengthThe higher the number, the more damage dealt via physical attacks.
MagicThe higher the number, the more damage dealt via magic attacks.
StaggerPercent at which the enemy staggers at.
LibraThe lower the number, the more time it takes to fill the enemy data.
Chain ResistanceThe higher the number, the longer it takes to fill the Chain Gauge.
KeepThe higher the number, the more difficult it is to interrupt its actions.
LaunchProbability of using COM's Launch ability.
  • Any resistances not listed are Normal
