ABBREVIATIONS:
QB = Quick Blitz
SD = Sliding Dash
Strike = Strike Raid
Zero G = Zero Gravira (note, not gravity, graviRA)
Shimmer = Shimmering crystal
Fleet = Fleeting *
Pulse = Pulsing *
Well = Wellspring *
Soothe = Soothing *
Hung = Hungry * =P
Abound = Abounding *

Before/While doing the next step, as I’m sure you have these lying around, meld a Zero G with a Poison and an Abound to get an EXP walk.

Meld 5 QB with 5 SD using Abound as a catalyst. If you don’t have enough then the only place I found them drop is off of the mandrakes in Hollow Bastion. Incidentally I started this when I first got there. This will give you 5 lucky strikes, learn them all.

Now you can go absolutely crazy using this list I made. There is a hallway outside of Aurora’s chamber in Enchanted Dominion that leads into the audience chamber. You want this hallway. The monsters are ultra weak, there are 10 waves total, they all take 1-2 hits even for Ven, and they don’t spawn any of those blasted steam balls. Here’s the kicker though, with 5 lucky strike you get a fira off of the red hot chili at like, a 50% rate. This will be your source of income.

So while leveling these abilities (after melding what you have) you will get mounds of Fira, levels, and whatnot. I suggest going for the treasure magnet ones first since they help out the most while farming. Also, you should throw on the Mickey/Stitch D-Links to get double exp/cp once you upgrade them to D-link level 3.

This is going to be listed as
Catalyst:
Skill 1 – Skill 2 = Attachment (# of ones you need)

Don’t worry, I’ve already optimized these in terms of cost effectiveness. Most only cost 200 munny, the other 4-5 are 1k Oh, and with the lucky strike stuff if you don’t have enough crystals you can literally run around Hollow Bastion killing Unversed, since it has the largest area/most types of Unversed.

Shimmer:
Fire – Fire = Fire boost 3
Blizz – Blizz = Blizz boost 3
Stop – Stop = Thund boost 3
Cure – Cure = Cure boost 3
SD – Fire = Fire screen 2
QB – Blizz = Blizz screen 2
SD – Poison = Thund screen 2
QB – SD = Dark screen 2

Fleet:
QB – SD = Atk haste 5
Fire – Fire = Mag haste 5
Fira – Fira = Reload boost 2

Pulse:
QB – SD = Finish Boost 2
Zero G – Poison = Combo Finish Boost 2
Blizzara – Blizzara = Second Chance 1
Fire – Fire = Leaf Bracer 1

Well:
Fire – Fire = Air Combo Plus 3
Fira – Fira = Once More 1
Blizz – Blizz = Combo Plus 3

Soothe:
Fire – Fire = HP Boost 3
QB – SD = Item Boost 3
Thundara – Thundara = Defender 1
Fira – Fira = Damage Siphon 1

Hung:
Fire – Fire = HP Prize + 3
QB – SD = Treasure Magnet 5

Abound:
Fira – Fira = EXP Chance 1
Zero G – Poison = EXP Walk 1
Fire – Fire = Link Prize + 3
QB – SD = Lucky Strike 5

Totals:
Fire – 38
Fira – 10
Blizzard – 14
Blizzara – 2
Thundara - 2
Stop – 6
Cure – 6
Sliding Dash – 26
Quick Blitz – 24
Poison – 5
Zero G – 3

Course the whole “broken strategy” is the 5 lucky strike hallway money grind raepfest, the rest is just meldspam.

Credit for the melding process and necessary components goes to starrk's FAQ. I just distilled it to min/max time, money versus gain.
One of these days they'll institute a mandatory skill and intelligence test for WoW. Only one server will be necessary after that, and it will be glorious.

My apologies, it appears that Thunder screen is Strike Raid and Poison.

Forgot to mention, all of these work for all three characters, so you don't have to worry about discrepancies there either =D

It's literally called Hallway. It's the one between Aurora's Room (the one with the save point and moogle shop and is also the name of where you warp in on the level) and the Audience Chamber, where you fight Terra's first boss.

Thanks, is it better than the mimic stages in the mirage arena?

@Vertainus

I would think so. This relies on purchasing a lot of the skills, which requires something around 20k munny. The way I generated income for this was by selling off the Fira and Ether I kept getting, and the moogle shop is literally a screen from the hallway I used, making it all kinds of streamlined (since running to the Audience Chamber and back would almost always level stuff up to 3 at least).

The Mirage Arena drops no items, so the only cash flow you get is what drops off of enemies. However, since each Fira sells for 250 munny and I get them at the rate of like 4 per minute I figure this can be arguably faster, and has a lot of other benefits as well.
