There are some secrets and exploits allow Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 players to cheat the system. There is also a number of Secret hidden in the game.
It is possible to adjust two Schemata with vulnerability with proper outfitting. One of the Scheme will be 100% resistant to physical attacks, and the other 100% invulnerable to magical attacks.
During combat if you switch between them you will be able to create a situation where you become almost resistant to most damage.
To achieve Physical invincibe Scheme Build you will need the following
Garb: Cyber Jumpsuit
Accessories: Ghostly Hood and Guard Glove
Cyber Jumpsuit Quiet Guardian can be purchased in Outfitters shops in Yusnaan. Ghostly Hood is dropped by Snow. The Guard Glove is found along the southern coast near South Station in Luxerion.
To achieve Magically invincibe Scheme Build you will need the following
Garb: Quiet Guardian
Accessories: Preta Hood and Runic Ring
Quiet Guardian can be purchased in Outfitters shops in Yusnaan. Preta Hood is dropped by Grendel (Deadly Dunes boss) and the Runic Ring is located on a platform above Old Town in Luxerion.
Note that although there is advantage using these Invulnerable Scheme build but also there are two disadvantages to using them.
- Since both are structured around hoods this means your own attack power will be reduced to almost zero in both Physical and Magic Damage. You will therefore be forced to equip only one effective damage-dealing schema.
- After a powerful Debuff your character will still be vulnerable to attacks.
