Final Fantasy XIII-2

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trophies
Performed a multitude of paradigm shifts.

Perform ~1000 Paradigm Shifts for this trophy. Paradigm Shifts can be done via the button while in battles.

Since Paradigm Shifts are - for all intents and purposes - the core of the battle system, all ~1000 will come naturally en route to maxing out Noel and Serah for Supreme Being . There is little-to-no need to grind for it or worry about it, but because ~1000 is a lot of Paradigm Shifts, Strategist didn't unlock until a few hours after I had finished the main story.

This one requires you to do 1000 Paradigm Shifts.

The number of fragments doesn't matter here, you just need to shift your paradigms. for example, if you change your paradigm once per battle, you'll need to do 1000 battles.

Ok so found a pretty easy way to farm up this trophy. What I did was set all my paradigms as follows.

Serah Noel Monster
Synergist Sentinel Yakshini
Saborteur Sentinel Yakshini
Commando Sentinel Yakshini
Ravager Sentinel Yakshini
Medic Sentinel Yakshini
Sentinel Sentinel Yakshini

Then just found random enemies in the Archlytte Steppe and just constantly started switching paradigms. I was getting about 50-100 switches a battle depending on what I was fighting. You do not have to attack anything to be considered a switch. So just keep switching however fast you can. I occasionally had to heal Noel but no big deal. Hope it help

holy crap, how long is this gonna take, this is the LAST one i need to get the platinum (my 1st too, was gonna be FF XIII, but mission 64 wont die fast enough...)

either im good at everything else, or this game is too easy and kind makes shifting near useless...

This was my last trophy. Had to do an extra 100-150 shifts AFTER getting every other trophy. Played the whole game on normal, did not find it a necessity to swap that much unless I would really need the ATB recharge trick.

Just start a random battle and keep switching between non-combat paradigms, such as SEN/MED/MED and SEN/SYN/MED.

I suggest that you leave this one until last. There's no point trying to farm it unless it's really the last trophy you need.

I love complainers on this site...they amuse me. If you do this right and by right I mean one or two shifts per battle it unlocks right around the end of chapter 5

Im not sure if the paradigm shifts 'per battle' cap at all. This was actually one of my last trophies to get (i trust auto battle a lot (hehe) so i just setup 6 random paradigms (this is endgame with capped chars and monsters) and ran around in Archylte Steppe with Clock speed to high and once in battle just spammed L1 down over and over switching through my paradigms and selecting them one by one, and every time i got to my medics i would throw a cure or 2 and continue.
Unlocked it in about 10 minutes this way (this is why i believe there is no cap to the amount of shifts per battle.)

Really Simple actually.

Find a single monster (I used Strigoi, any low damage will do) hits about 16-65damage on me.

Set up 2 paradigms at the bottom of the customize list
-Sab,Syn,Sen(pulse knight)

Keep switching between the two and you should have it within 10mins depending how much you did before.
