I sit for hours and I means and try to find new and much better ways to level up in all the FF games I have. In this one, I found a way that hasn't ever been mentioned.
So here it is... (as I said, detail is great and huge but helps)
Even if you're on your first game of X2 or replaying there is an ingenious way of leveling up and it is done in Chapter Two, Underneath Bevelle and following what I've done it should help you all easily in gaining some levels.
In Chap. 1 I recommend, and this is only a recommendation as it made my go through bosses and all easier during this chapter-, to lvl up to 20 before going after Kilika's "Awesome Sphere". Why? It does make things a lot easier than they can be, I think I was lvl 13-15 when in my first go and I struggled. 20 is comfortable and easy to achieve in this chapter. Walk round Thunder Plains, Mi'Hen Highroad is a great little place to start... I don't safely say Macalania Woods as for low levels the fiends are strong.
Now with Chap. 2 in motion, please be at least lvl. 25 before going into Chateau LeBlanc.
In a bit of a helpful hint, being at that lvl, you can defeat the trio in this simple order: Logos (lowest HP/stops a tri-attack by them), LeBlanc and then Ormi (he has the weakest attacks so it isn't much threat).
I suggest these recommended lvls as what I'm about to suggest you do for some serious leveling up, means you will be fighting a boss (more than once) and I know it works as I've been sitting here for the past 2hrs doing so...
Get in Underneath Bevelle and up to the 6 tower room, this is where you will be leveling up to a high number quickly. (The room name on the map should be: Bevelle - Restricted Area)
Forget about what you need to do and focus on gaining pretty much 10 or 15 lvls.
Walk "anti-clockwise" from the chain you get off, I always seem to walk anti-clockwise, by the screens view of things. Go up to every tower, the battles are pretty worthwhile.
Here is the fun part, I noticed when fiddling with the towers a second time the two (blue coloured lantern front ones) that you will walk up have Precepts Guard and Georapella battles activated on them the first time round, correct?
Alright, so did you notice the EXP gained from them?
Precepts Guard (the thin one) gives you 700 EXP when you win. Georapella (cage fiend that swallowed Tidus in FFX beginning) gives you 800 EXP when you defeat it.
Here is the beautifully bittersweet fun fact I discovered: They respawn! No matter how many times you do battle with them, they just keep popping up to fight.
Should they oversoul even better news, they give you double the normal EXP.
Not to mention, they give a pretty niffy sum of Gil too each time round.
I came down into Bevelle with Yuna on 25, Rikku/Paine both on 26. They now are on 40, and 41/41. Only takes a few patient hours but its well worth it in my opinion.
Haha. I love Berserkers. I have three and used them to finish the game at lvls 81 Y, 83 R, 86 P. The only thing that I hate and find the hardest in the game is the damn Via Infinito. It is the worst part of the game.
