Lightning has had a makeover. All will be revealed in due time.

This guide is being written with the premise of taking you from the start till the end of the game in the shortest amount of time possible. With the lone exception of one quest in AF003 New Bodhum, and completing a portion of the quests in AF400 Academia, we do all other quests after the game has been beaten. Wait for the main menu to come up, and then choose one of the following entries:

Upon selecting New Game, you can choose between Normal Mode or Easy Mode .

  • Enemies in Easy Mode are about 20% weaker

  • Wound Damage in Easy Mode is automatically recovered.

  • 5*ing a battle in Normal Mode awards Item drop 200% Up and Rare drop 200% Up bonuses

  • Normal Mode is associated with at least one trophy.

Whenever possible, we’ll be playing with Serah as the leader.

After the happy ending of Final Fantasy XIII, Serah Farron sets out on a search for her sister Lightning who mysteriously disappeared. No one but Serah remembers what happened that day underneath the crystal pillar and many believe Lightning died.
