I've been looking up strategies on how to beat him, none help. I'm not sure how to buff/debuff him, my characters as far as I'm aware can't do saboteur or synergist, I'm trying to figure out how to keep his health from regenerating... can I buy poison from the woman dressed as a chocobo? My characters can paradigm shift with ravager, commando, sentinel, medic in many different orders of those 4... what's the best strategy?

ITs been too long since i played to remember a stratedgy so I can't help there, but i will say this: I beat the game w/o ever using syn or sab even once. That was prob not the best way to go about it, but i went through the game with just the four classes you mentioned, so dont give up hope its not impossible.

Try using a dedicated Sentinel.
I do recommend unlocking Sabotuer for Serah and Synergist for Noel on their next Crystarium expansions, though.

I spent about half an hour trying to come up for a strategy to beat him, but to no avail. Your just going to have to level up and have a dedicated sentinel if you need to, make sure you have a sab for his buffs, and you'll beat him easily.

You seem like you've came into this game not playong XIII... Anyways I'll make this quick and simple...

A SAB role debuffs your enemies (gives them status aliments like poison, deprotect, deshell...) and a SYN role buffs your party (gives them protect, shell, veil...)

To counter Caius's rapid health regen, land 'Poison' on Cauis, you will have to do this a few times as he gets rid of all his status aliments and his chain gauge a few times... The best person to give the SAB role to is Serah, and Noel's the best person for the SYN role.

Also, I hope this playthrough helps you with the Cauis fight, Olizandri is a easy proven gamer, who, always shows his techniques in the simplest way.

That video is bad.

You don't need Poison. Start learning important buffs and debuffs and which monsters have powerful Feral Links.

An example:

You don't need to be this precise, but Nekton and Gahongas are very helpful monsters at this point.
