As you arrive, you’ll see a bunch of hunters doing their usual activities. Go inside the town (“!” on your map) and talk with the leader over there. He’ll give you Map of the Steppe. But it’s not free…. You need to help the hunters doing some mundane jobs.
There were too many enemies in this place, So I won’t list them all here but in other sections
 Defeat the goblin
The location might be different but I found them running around at point  on my map. They’re also accompanied by chocobo but it’s easy too… You’ll obtain Goblin Fragment after killing the goblin. Go back to the town by touching the red cactuar statue that located north of .
 Woolly Wool
Talk to a girl who stand on the north of the leader (“!” on your map). You can find the sheep on the location marked by  on my map. You need to find 3 different types of wool (Rough wool, Fluffy Wool, and Thick Wool). Return to her and give the wool to her. You’ll obtain Woolly Stone Fragment.
Now you can use “weather controlling device” . You can change the weather to change the monsters that will appear on this area. Combination of the switches are:
L= left, R= right, U= Up, D= down
LU and RU= Windy (default weather when you came here for the first time)
LD and RD= Rainy
LU and RD=Sunny
LD and RU= Cloudy
You’ll need to make a heat wave which can be done by change the weather into sunny condition. There’ll be a dragon appears after you have changed the weather into sunny condition. Try to go there and you’ll see a giant beast blocks your way.
PS: It’s called long gui, those who have played FF XIII must have known this enemies, I believe you can’t defeat it now . Maybe you can defeat it right now if you have over-leveled your characters , but Snow will die because he keeps waiting forever for you because the flan is getting bigger and bigger .
So go back to weather controlling device and then change the weather into dark condition. This will make long gui disappeared from the path. Go back to Dragon’s spot and
Recommended Paradigm: Perpetual magic (Medic x2 Ravager), Bully( Synergist, saboteur, commando), Relentless assasult (ravager x2 and commando).
After defeating it you’ll obtain Black Hole Gem. There’ll be a cube treasure ( Dragon Hide Backpack;live trigger reward) appear nearby. You’re done for now and can go back to Sunleth Waterscape.
(There are a lot of things that can be done on Archylte Steppe so I will cover it on another section; Check it later on main index of FF XIII-2 guide).
Snow has been waiting for us and didn’t get patient enough to wait for us (maybe he already died if you have leveled up to defeat long gui ) ).
Recommended paradigm: Relentless assault (Ravager x2 and commando), Bully (Synergist, saboteur, commando)
You’ll get Mutantomato Fragment as reward. Event, throw the moogle to obtain Mysterious Fragment and then go to the gate in the middle of this area (marked by “!” on your map). You’ll use Mysterious artefact that you have gotten before (it’ll transform into Restoration Artefact).
Go to “The Void Beyond”, it’s your second time here if you have followed my guide since beginning. Event, and then take 6 potent chips. There are seal items in this area:
‘Prediction’ Gate’s Seal on the southwest of this area (you need to use moogle throw).
‘The Calm’ Gate Seal on the northwest of this area (moogle throw needed)
Check the golden sand once you have done those things. You’ll see Academia 400 AF and Serendipity (casino) appear on historia crux (only if you have done Yaschas Massif scenario).
