Easy money trick
Metodo 1: i Cactuars
Here is a simple easy way to earn many Gil (the game currency) in Lightning Returns FFXIII. With this trick you can get to earn too 200.000 Gil in one hour about, without wasting precious time in the campaign and without having to progress very far in the game.
To do this, go to the beach crossed by the monorail where, starting at 5:50 AM, Cactuars will almost always appear. You can freeze time, so you don't reach the end of the day at 6:00 AM. Keep beating Cactuars on the beach until they come. At some point, as with all monsters in the game, their extinction will come and they will not be born again, and you will have earned your 200.000 Gil and beyond.
Tips for beating the Cactuars: Remember that these creatures are vulnerable to fire. In this sense, the pink dress of the main quest of the Colosseum of Yusnaan will come in very handy, with a Level 3 fire magic. Furthermore, you can lower their defenses on magical attacks and apply the element of fire to your weapons.
