In Final Fantasy XIII-2 there are scenes where you actively choose a conversation path. This guide will detail the conditions and optimum answers that lead to treasure box rewards. This guide will not specify the responses you receive from your answers, only which to pick to optimize your rewards. Also in this guide, the whole question will be shown, and in some cases, can give insight to the current story (aka spoilers). I suggest you follow this after you beat the game except for Archylte Steppe (there is a missable adornment there), as to avoid any unnecessary spoilers. If you do use this as you play for the first time, I suggest not reading the questions until you get to that general part of the storyline.

All rewards are Adornments for your monsters unless you do not meet requirements(see below).


A few points to make about the Live Triggers:
  • There are two conditions that unlock the Live Trigger rewards. They are: 1). The number of individual questions answered. 2). The selection of specific "funny" responses.
  • If you do not meet the requirements, you are given a Potion as a reward instead.
  • For Live Trigger scenes, you are not allowed to skip preceding cut scenes (pressing START and skipping scenes), as this skips the Live Trigger as well. You are, though, allowed to skip any following scenes.
  • You can return to completed areas to obtain Live Trigger rewards by closing the Gates to replay events from the Main Story. Some Live Triggers will be unavailable on these "second playthroughs" but there are enough of them to receive the optimum rewards.
  • Your previous answers may be replaced by "extended" answers on these repeat playthroughs. The Paradox Scope Fragment Skill can also lead to new answers.
  • To close a gate, you must have found the corresponding Artefact. Once in the Historia Crux, before choosing to go to the Time Period, you press to close the gate, restarting the story of the area. Enter while the gate is closed. Also, to do this, you must be in the Gate Matrix view, the one where they are bonded by the order of progression, not the simple listing of different areas.
  • To get all Adornments possible, places with multiple rewards must be played multiple times to get the awards. In other words, you can only receive one reward at a time.
Extended Answers: Answers that replace old ones that you have previously chosen, since the game keeps track of which ones you choose.

Paradox Scope Fragment Skill: Received from Serendipity (casino) once you complete the main storyline. This can also lead to the appearance of new dialogue options.



Legend
TE = Time Event
LT = Live Trigger
Q = Question
FA = Funny Answer(s)
FA: - = No Funny Answer
Purple text means the Live Trigger is unavailable during Time Reversal

"Sazh: Heads or Tails?" DLC

In this DLC, you are given Live Triggers that, if not answered correctly the first time, won't give you their rewards. 2 of the rewards are just coins, so it isn't much to miss out on. Also, closing the gate here works to get the coins if you missed them, BUT you cannot gather these prizes again (except the fortune medal).

Location: Next to the Chocobo Races building.

Question: "This little chocobo chick seems to be off in its own little world. What do you say?"
Answer: "Are you lost, little one?"
Reward: 100 casino coins

Location: At the entrance of the casino.

Question: "What do you say to the extremely shy chocobo chick?"
Answer: "Come with me!"
Reward: 500 casino coins

Location: On the unused card table.

Question: "The three chicks contradict each other. Which one is telling the truth?"
Answer: "Greed"
Reward: Fortune Medal

Location: Talk to Chocolina after gathering all 6 chocobo chicks.

Question: "What is the name and color of the chich that found hope in Sazh's afro?"
Answer: "The green-colored Sloth"
Reward: None

Just making sure to have enough room There are quite a lot of live triggers throughout the game. I probably won't complete this until late this weekend. I haven't beaten the game yet, but I hope to keep this guide up with the point I am at. I might actually need more due to the number of areas and time periods you go to! So I may need to ask you to delete your post, but hopefully not

As long as you aren't planning on typing out the entire conversations, you should have plenty of the space. The official guide has all the live triggers in the game on 3 pages that include location, text on screen, choice, and prize in a 4 column chart. Granted the font is pretty small, but if you plan out your guide well I'm sure you can easily fit it within those 12 posts (or less). Although I'm not sure what the character limit is per post...

As im spotting a fair deal of information so far, i would like to suggest compressing a lot of the stuff and making a shorthand list of things


1. Compressed Legend?

TE = Time Event (LT = Live Triggers)
Q = Question
FA = Funny Answer(s)


A compressed legend should bring down that character count by a lot as it appears to be just eating away at the character limit PER event, let alone per Time Location. (least by my perspective)


2. Removal of FA heading on certain events/triggers

I would also like to suggest removing any of the Funny Answer(s) listings from Time Events that do not have any funny answers. This should also bring the character count down by a lot as well.


FYI: Character limit is 10,000 or 100,000 (forget which) but it gets used up VERY quickly.

You can eventually get items called gate seals that let you close gates to replay sections. And even in those replays there will always be enough triggers and funny responses to receive the best rewards. Once you get a seal there will be a little into screen about all of this.

On the Yaschas Massif 10AF, there's a bit of a typo. Your guide says to answer all 5, but there are 6 in your list. I'm assuming that the first run through has all 6 and that one of them is missing after using a time reversal? Or did you just mean to say 6 instead of 5? Sorry if I missed it, but maybe you could do something to point out which options are gone after a time reversal? Like a change in font color or an asterisk?

Its just a typo. Fixing it now. Also, the ones with #MSO are gone after time reversal. I will change it to different color right now.

If you meet the requirements for both, do you get both rewards, or can you only get one or the other at a time? Thanks in advance!

Weird, I followed 003AF Next Day and I did miss 1 encounter because I had no clue what was counting for the "items'. I don't think it would have been a spoiler to have mentioned what it was, and I would not have missed it if you mentioned it specifically instead of not listing it. I followed it and still missed it because I am also reading the strategy guide which had me go to the knife pretty quickly. I answered exactly 5 funny answers on that section and I only got a potion. The guide says 4 or more? Maybe it has to be a specific FA? I missed the event for "Are you an artifact?".

A very big question I have...what exactly do these things do and are they crucial to making the game easier or can these items be obtained in other ways (aka buying them)? I'm sure I'll find out, but the game has not really described these events nor mentioned the benefits. The strat guide mentions getting rewards for LT events, but does not go into much detail (at least in the regular walkthrough). Just curious if I should even bother with these, or enjoy the game.

This whole thing was copied from the Strategy Guide You said you missed one of the conversations, it requires you to do all 11 of the conversations during the 2nd day in New Bodhum. I would recommend just playing through the game, and cross-reference which of these items are only received from the Live Triggers, then go back and redo them. That is what I am doing right now As for importance, there isn't any, and most, if not all, cannot be bought. They are ALL just decorations for the captured monsters. Its for a completionist's sake.

ohhh so it's stuff they wear? Sweet, I wouldn't mind getting them if they make the monsters appear different. This makes it easier than flipping so many pages of that book, feels like I need several bookmarks. Thanks for posting and answering my questions, I feel a lot better now!

Added in the "Sazh: Heads or Tails?" DLC Live Triggers. There isn't much to win, but it still falls under the category of Live Trigger Rewards
