Beat chapter 10 and start chapter 11.

There are 2 boss fights in this chapter. A Cocoon l'Cie and an Eidolon.

The l'Cie will change tactics depending on your stance. I recommend debuffing it as much as you can and switching to a relentless assualt. If you have a synergist, buff yourselves as well. The l'Cie has a skill that does 50-70% damage to the party as well as removing all party buffs. If things get tight, you can summon your eidolon. This fight is potentially the harder of the two boss fights this chapter.

The final boss fight of the chapter is against an eidolon. It responds to debuffs, defense and chain-building. I recommend starting the battle with 2 members sabotaging and one healing. From there switch to a defensive stance with one member defending, one healing and one doing as you will. After healing up, switch to an all out assault to fill the gauge. I surprised myself by doing this fight in 1:37. The key is to skip the cut scenes so it will go to the main menu and allow you to reconfigure the paradigms; when your party is changed to these members you will be given a pre-defined set of stances. You should be able to come up with some better ones on your own.

Go to the end of the level, some cut scenes later you are in chapter 11 and bloop!
