Many players in FFXIII forum consider Lionheart to be Lightning's best weapon, but you won't get it until the start of chapter 12. For me, I completed the first tier levelling of her Blazefire Saber in Chapter 9 and didn't upgrade for her again until I got Lionheart.
For organic stuff, just concentrate on buying Sturdy Bones. 36 of them will give a 3x (200%) increase in mechanical parts experience. If you are in first tier (have not levelled up your weapon to second tier), Bomb Core and Solenoid that can be gathered in Mahabbara are very, very useful, packing a moderate amount of experience points. They are easy drops, and you get to farm lots of CP along the way too.
I am stuck in chapter 12, the enemies are tough and it seems I have to do a bit of levelling up.
You can grind in Chapter12, of course, but the enemies there pay out less CP so the process will be longer.
However, even if you maxed out Stage9, there are certain enemies you might want to avoid for now.
So I went ahead and engaged mr.turtle, his legs were targetable and before I could do anything else he horse stomped me to the game over screen. I was like WTF! so I reloaded my game and left the treasures alone, turns out he doesn't touch the glass if you don't open a treasure so I went on ahead deciding to come back for those treasures when I'm strong enough to kick his turtle ***.
I haven't yet beat XIII but i'm having a great time with it. So many possiblities that can go into it makes a a great game. However, i'm still wishing for Versus to eventurally make it's deput
Gonna try this gameout on my cousins 360 .... Hope it's good.
my cousinsp complained it was too easy and linear though.

I'm playing this game right now and it's very linear, but once you get passed the 30 hr game play mark the world opens up. In the meantime the linear game play is necessary for the story. Good thing the story is at least interesting. The graphics are amazing on the 360.
