This strategy requires you to practically be done with the Crystarium (meaning everyone is level 5 in all roles) and you must have Tier 2 weapons equipped along with very high strength and magic boosting accessories. You also need the Genji Gloves (breaks damage limit) , and I recommend equipping a Collector's Catalogue to increase the chances of obtaining Platinum Ingots. Make sure Fang has the Genji Gloves equipped or else you won't kill the legs in one hit.

Have the party consisting of Fang, Hope, and Vanille and have these Paradigms:

Rapid Growth (SYN/SYN/SYN)
Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV)
Discretion (COM/MED/MED)
Assassination (SAB/RAV/SAB)
Cerberus (COM/COM/COM)

When the battle begins, manually caste Bravera and Faithra on the party. When this is done, switch to Tri-disaster and stagger one of the legs. When its staggered, get its stagger percentage above 450% and then switch to Discretion. Use Highwind, which will KO the leg, and then switch back to Tri-disaster and do the same thing with the other leg.

When the Adamantoise falls over, switch to Assassination and caste Slow and Imperil while Vanille will cast Deprotect and Deshell. When this is done switch to Tri-disaster and stagger the Adamantoise. Stay with this Paradigm until his stagger percentage is above 900%; getting it to 999% would be much better but anything above 900% is good enough.

Now switch to Cerberus and kill the Adamantoise. This strategy also works with Adamantortoise, the weaker versions of the Adamantoise.

Note that if you are having troubles with this strategy, you simply are not strong enough. Fang must have over 2,500 strength for Highwind to KO the legs and Vanille and Hope should also be around 2,500 magic.

This is one of the faster methods of killing Adamantoises and is great for farming Platinum Ingots (which you can sell for 150,000 Gil, great for farming Gil) and Trapezohedrons, which are required to create Tier 3 weapons.
