  3. So to farm AP and not EXP you use "Card" on enemies?

I can't remember if the game said you gain EXP from damaging enemies or if they have to die. Does "Card" do a lot of damage? Maybe I'm way off and aren't even asking the right questions.

I heard killing enemies with status attack (death, Break, Bio) also doesn't give u any exp
didn't try it yet,, still early game hunting cards for fun :D

carding enemies also doesn't give u exp... it works better when enemy has low HP

oh no I didn't get any exp when I dmg the enemy then card it

No, if you hit/damage the enemy and flee, you can get EXP. If you don't hit them and flee, no EXP. If one or two characters is KO'd while you're still alive and concluding the battle, you will receive EXP but others do not receive it.

Breaking (Petrify/Stone) and Carding on enemies will not receive EXP, but will receive AP. Some enemies are immune to Petrify/Petrifying.

By the way, using Card don't damage, but you need to damage enemy's HP and make it lower, so you can card it, turning it into a card.

If you hit them (say for Mugging), then heal them to full health, then flee, you don't get EXP.

This is true, but you have to make sure they were at full health when they got petrified.

So if you hit them and get EXP, but you're trying not to get EXP, how/what is the best way to farm AP then?

Huh? Any damaged enemy can be petrified, can't it? Break depends on the chance of enemy that will be petrified.

How you do it is use Card when you cut the enemy's HP to low. Gravity may work on enemies, but some of them are immune to it. Try to damage enemy, not overkill it.

Or use Break on each enemy, but it depends on the chance of the enemy that will be petrified.

It can, but you will get some EXP still, if they weren't at full health.

Use Quistis' Micro Missiles limit break, then Card.

Just tested this game and turned out that you're right. I didn't know this. I played the game before. For 20 years, and I didn't know this. I'm so silly.

My bad.
