    Finish as many missions as possible, you can leave and come back through.

    In Chapter 13, just before you fight the final boss, there is a floating male/female, talking to them sends you back to either area's.

    When you progress through Chapter 11, you will return to Cocoon, and you can't get back. Just spend some time farming and saving CP.

    To be honest, 11 can be very long if you want to get everything, just go with the flow, you can always come back, and even when you defeat the main boss at the end, you can still carry on. So nothings really missable.

    There are 64 of the Ce'ith Missions by the way, so that will keep your busy for a while

    Cool, think its time to move onto the next area of 11 anyway, as all the missions are done there (think its 18 next)

    How many stages does the crystalarium have? I've just maxed out stage 9 for the 3 main roles for each character (Adamantoise farming @ chapter 11 ftw). Unfortunatly still had no trapezohedrons yet tho Thats all thats keeping me from the ultimate weapons.

    Do you think its over kill to start leveling up the other roles of the chars or should I save my CP for later?

    There's 10 Stages for each Role. I'd focus on saving around 1M CP at a time now, and then unlocking their other roles.

    Well done on Adam farming How many Plat ingots you got so far from them? I'm on my second game in 11 now, doing these Ce'ith missions which I missed first time

    Ive had about 10/15 kills now and 1 plat drop, even with 5 stars and starred collectors catalogs its terrible! 40k CP is worth the 1 min 40 second fight when death spam works tho The TP farming after is annoying downtime but its another 10k+ CP for a couple of minutes fight.

    Chris,

    Got this for you, should help with your catalogs:

    http://img532.imageshack.us/img532/7638/nostacking.jpg

    and this blurb from the Japanese:

    Collect Catalog and Connoisseurs Catalog
    Collect Catalog+Collect Catalog=NO stack
    Collect Catalog+Connoisseurs Catalog=Stack
    Lightning equip a Collect Catalog + Fang equip a Collect catalog=No stack.
    Lightning equip a Collect Catalog + Fang equip a Connoisseurs catalog= stack
    Simply one of your party equip each a catalog,effect is enough.

    Dropping rate of items is 1.5 times higher.

    Dropping rate of rare Items is 1.1 times higher.

    There is another way.

    Do the missions and get your Genjii gloves, upgrade two of them fully and dismantle.

    (Actually not sure if you get a Trap or Dark Matter) than upgrade Fangs Taming pole, use one of the Traps, than dismantle it for three more, should have 4 now

    Also, can you only level the extra roles at cl9 to role level2?

    Not sure, never touched the other roles, just stuck with the default. I blitzed the game in 34hours, and am now playing again with the aim to get all the trophies as I missed alot of items first time round.

    Had some good luck! Got Genji Gauntlet, 3 ultimate weapons at level 99 and some other cool accessories. Finished the Titans Trials while still in Ch11 and maxed all my chars roles at level 9.
    I think its time to finish the story now and come back to the other missions later

    Its beautiful to look at and the story so far is great, but I think you either love or hate FF, personally I love them.

    Just wish you could get 7 and 8 for xbox... is there a PC version about?
    I played 7 on my original PlayStation - worse thing I did during my final year in University. I racked up a good 40 hours before realising my final exams were very close.

    I'm considering XIII for the PS3 this week - maybe once all the coursework marking is out of the way.
