well..we all need this for the fun of it from time to time...so here's some i collected:

FF12 battle tactics:
How to beat Rockeater:
Utilize a lot of wind magic (Aero) on him and attack him physically. He's gonna go down pretty quickly. To defeat him very fast, make sure you are at full MP and summon an Esper. He will help greatly in battle.

How to beat Garuda:
Have three players with the Arcane magick called "Dark". Garuda likes Vossler and will attack him first. While he does that, command all the members to cast Dark. When they all cast Dark it will do about 1,890 damage total. Keep repeating this and Garuda will die in about fifty seconds.

How to beat Belias:
This should be your party order: Fran, Basche (party leader), Vaan, and Vossler. Equip a character with low magic (in this case Basche) with the Nethicite, as this makes magicks take half damage. If you have the Evil Slayer, it would be very helpful. Puchase lots of Handkerchiefs (oil remover) from the NPC outside and some Phoenix Downs. Before entering the altar to Belias, have Fran cast Protect and Shell on everyone. Now, have Vaan do the healing and Basche do the hitting. Have Fran cast Water and Slow on Belias. When Belias is at 40% HP or less, he will cast Firaja (different from Firaga) on you. You will have created an Oil status which makes fire hurt a lot more. Cure this with the Handkerchiefs, and cast Protect and Shell on Basche. By keeping this up and you will acquire him as your first Esper (summons).

How to beat Famfrit:
You won't battle Famfrit until the near the end of the game. But make sure you don't meet Famfrit alone. He is actually summoned by Dr. Cid. After he loses about half of his heath, Dr. Cid summons him to his aid. Concentrate all your attacks on the Esper, because he is invulnerable with him out. He is a Water type; therefore utilize Oil on him and shoot some Firagas at him. You can also utilize your summoning abilities to summon Belias. If he survives long enough to use his final attack, the Oil will double the damage. He already takes double damage from fire attacks, so it will do quadruple damage. After beating him, you can concentrate on Cid.

How to beat Flowering Cactoid:
After finding Flowering Cactoid, defeat all of the surrounding enemies in the area. This will leave him without a place to run and hide. Then, simply defeat him with attacks and magic. Although you can do this with just Vaan, it will be a lot easier if you do this hunt after Penelo has joined the party
User Cheat by sean12 .

How to beat Hashmaul:
Start by Dispelling his protections and using Haste and Protect on your party. You should also use a large chain of Quickenings to lower his HP by some, but save some MP for later. He likes to use Slow and Disease at you often. Get rid of it with the proper spell or item. After Hashmaul loses three quarters of his HP, he uses a very powerful attack called Quakeja. There is a secret on how to take absolutely no damage from it. Cast Float on your party before he uses it. He will only use it once. Because he is an Earth type, he is weak to Wind. Shoot Aero at him as much as possible. Keep everyone above 50% HP and keep up your Aero to win in no time.

How to beat Mateus:
Get your party to be at least level 30 at least (for example, Vaan as party leader, Basch, and Penelo). Have both Vaan and Basch to learn Thundara and equip them both with Ice Shield. Equip Penelo with Storm Spear. Purchase at least five Banchus Wine (Berserker). At the battle, have Vaan and Basch immediately cast Thundara to kill all the Ice Ace. Now have Basch keep casting Thundara at Mateus and Vaan heal when needed. Let Penelo keep attacking Mateus. After thie effect wears off, make her berserk again. You can most likely beat Mateus in about seven minutes by doing this.

How to beat Shemhazai:
This Esper has a very annoying habit of Silencing your party. Make sure everyone has an Anti-Silence Gambit before fighting, In the battle, immediately Dispel the boss to remove her Haste. Start a chain of Quickenings to deal a good amount of damage quickly. After she uses her Mana Spring ability she is weak to an element, but absorbs all the rest, Only use spells on her if they are non-elementel. The Esper also casts Syphon, stealing some of your MP, but its not that much to worry about. Keep attacking and healing until you win.

How to beat Tiamat:
When you are in the Henne Mines, you will battle the Boss, Tiamat. He utilizes Aero attack on all of your party members which can inflict severe damage. To prevent this, cast Reflect on all of your party members before the fight. Whenever he uses Aero, it will bounce back to Tiamat. This will cause it to recover a little HP, but you will not receive any damage from that attack.

How to beat Vossler:
Begin by killing the three soldiers around him. Once they are dead, concentrate on Vossler. You will find this to be easy, as his attacks do not do too much damage. Heal when necessary. After he is down to a quarter of his HP he will use a move called Enrage, which basically makes him go crazy and attack very fast. He can kill your characters very quickly this way. Summon your newly acquired Esper, Belias. Belias takes full MP to summon. You may want to teach him to a character that is not in your active party. After Belias is summoned, have the character that summoned him step back so that Vossler will target Belias. If you summoned Belias after Vossler used Enrage, Belias will kill him. Heal Belias when necessary.

How to beat Zeromus:
Remember: It is recommended that this be done at level 50 or higher. You can battle and defeat Zeromus as soon as you complete the Stilshrine of Miriam dungeon and get through the scenes at Mt. Bur-Omisace afterwards. After beating the Judge, exit the map where you killed him. Talk with the Acolyte somewhere on the map to receive a Stone Of Condemner. Stock up on healing items. You cannot utilize magic during the battle with Zeromus. At the southern end of the Ward of Measure, touch the Waystone. You will be given an option to use the Stone Of Condemner. Use it. You will be transported to the Throne Of Veiled Gods. Before you open the door to Zeromus, place positive status effects on your characters and tweak your Gambits to use items instead of magic to heal. You may want to do this later in the game when you have more powerful equipment and are at a higher level.

Get easy experience:
At the Dreadnought Leviathan, after beating the two judges and the soldiers, proceed inside the room and save the princess, after you've done this save the game. After you go outside an intermission sequence will start. There will be an alarm sounding, and there are unlimited soldiers that you can fight. Don't use potions and other items. Try to save them and use magic more. Once you are low on health you can go back into the save room and refill your health and MP. Keep doing this for easy experience and AP. You can also stealth as much as desired.

While venturing through the Nam-Yensa Sandsea, proceed to the northern most part of The Sandscale Bank. There you will find an enemy named Bagolys. They are worth 448 to 676 experience points each and can drop Bent Staffs, which are worth approximately 1300 gil each. After beating them, leave, then come back. Keep battling them. You will gain levels and get gil.

In the mission of the Blue Basilisk "Nidhogg", one of the parts of the roads is a place where lots of skeletons keep reappearing. If they stop, go off two maps then return. The skeletons will respawn. You will need some patience, but it will result in both gil and experience points because you get Bone Fragments and Iron Helms which sell for 182 and 300 gil respectively.

Equip Thief's Cuffs (a better chance to steal rare loot gloves). Go to the Tchita Uplands. Steal from the Coeurl. You can get the Embroidered Tippet which doubles the experience for the character in use, making every one of your enemies in the Tchita Uplands worth over 1,000 experience points each.

With a character who is taking to long to upgrade, get that person an Esper. Now locate a place that has a lot of enemies that you know you and that your Esper can slaughter. Summon that character's Esper and start defeating enemies as fast as you can. An enemy destroyed by an Esper gives you at least three times as much experience as normal.

Remember: This trick requires the ability to go to Old Arcades and have an Esper to summon. If someone is taking too long to upgrade, purchase an Embroidered Tippet for 5,000 gil from the Seeq near the entrance. Buy the licenses for the accessory and equip it. Then get that person an Esper. Find an area full of enemies to summon your Esper and do so. Let the Esper start killing. Every enemy killed by an Esper gives you 3X experience, and with the Tippet equipped, it doubles for a total of x6 experience. Doing this will upgrade any character very quickly.

Get easy gil:
Very early in the game, the easiest way to gain money fast is to do the first hunt mission. Also, Steal from the Cactoid in the Eastern Sands. You will Steal a Cactus Fruit usually. This sells for about 77 or more gil each, allowing you to get a decent amount of money to start the game.

While venturing through the Nam-Yensa Sandsea, proceed to the northern most part of The Sandscale Bank. There you will find an enemy named Bagolys. They are worth 448 to 676 experience points each and can drop Bent Staffs, which are worth approximately 1300 gil each. After beating them, leave, then come back. Keep battling them. You will gain levels and get gil.

In the Easternsands, steal from the Cactus. Once in a while you will obtain a Broadsword which sells for 200 gil each.

Get easy LP:
When you are doing the God or Devil hunt, on the first floor that you visit on the elevator trip to Penumbra, you will encounter a creature called a Magic Pot. Do not attack it immediately. If you have to, turn Gambits off. If you attack it when you see it, there is a significant chance you will die. It will be immune to your attacks and magic if you attacked. The only way to kill it is to wait until a message appears stating that it craves an item. If you have the item it wants, use it on the Magic Pot. It will then become ecstatic and begin hopping around the room. You can now attack it without it attacking you. When you manage to kill it you will be rewarded 0 experience points, but 123 LP. Equip the accessory that doubles LP earned to get the most out of each kill.

Go to the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea and stay on the platforms. Just wander them, killing Urutu-Yensas and get your chain as high as possible. If you see a tomato, or the "fire elemental", just get away from it. After getting a chain of about 106, you can obtain over 800 LP for your characters with Golden Amulets, and over 400 for those without.

Get easy Restoration:
Discover a place without any mobs. Run around until your Magick bar fills to capacity. Utilizing this method you can then heal and remove status effects from your allies without using any potions or special items. Remember: This may require patience and time depending on your level.

this combo is really nice for FFXII

if you use a remedy on the enemy while having a "Nihopalaoa" equiped, you will do a lot of status ailments on the enemy. you can increase the effect with Remedy Lores on the licence board

only when a monster has a 100% immunity against an ailment it wil miss, but 99% won't, and will hit him 100% of the time

Watch out you don't use it on yourself > as good as dead

If you get W-Item that way, you have to wait until disk 3. Though you can get it before then, during the raid on Midgar at the end of disk 2.
