Cloud of Darkness Clash!

Cloud of Darkness Clash! (激突!暗闇の雲! in Japanese) is the second part of the Final Fantasy III event in Airborne Brigade. It added no mechanics to the game and instead focused on refining and giving better equipment.

The event ran from June 25th, 2013 to July 14th, 2013. It was divided into first and second halves, both with their own ranking rewards and items to get.

Overview

The event region this time around was Otherworld (FFIII Part 2), consisting of three different areas that were released on a staggered schedule during the first half of the event. The daily login bonus included x10 of a random one of the transmutation items.

Boss Gauntlet

The boss gauntlet this time consisted of two different sets, one for the first half and another for the second half. Of the bosses, Cloud of Darkness gave more drops and CP than the normal bosses, and when Iron Giant was added, it gave more CP than Cloud of Darkness.
Garuda was the 'miss' boss, when you failed to find a good event boss between rounds of the boss gauntlet. Additionally, while Cloud of Darkness always appeared after Xande, an Iron Giant pop was not guaranteed after Cloud of Darkness.

Companions

For the second half of the event, Luneth would join you for questing and event boss battles through the Moogle Saloon. You would gain experience for him by questing and through Experiopedias (500 exp per book). Those would drop off of the event bosses, and additionally you could gain them as daily brigade victory rewards and by encountering a training partner during quests.

CP Exchange

The CP vault is in a similar format as the ones from previous events, and included the relatively new mechanic of giving away weapon scrolls instead of low-rarity and non-event weapons for the 'miss' draws.

Below are the items available for exchange.

Crystal Chest: Chance of SSR, SR+, SR and R+ event weapons, and Weapon/Ability/Summon Scrolls II (R and R+). Requires 50,000 CP and a Crystal Key to open.
Platinum Chest: Chance of SR+ and Weapon/Ability/Summon Scrolls II (R and R+). Requires 2,500 CP to open.
Weapon Scroll III: 250 CP for first time, 1,500 CP for all subsequent times.
Ability Scroll III: 250 CP for first time, 1,500 CP for all subsequent times.
Summon Scroll III: 250 CP for first time, 1,500 CP for all subsequent times.

CP Vault

The total number of event weapons in the vault this time was 251, with the 1 there being an SSR weapon. Once you succeed in getting an SSR weapon, you can 'restock' the vault. This replenishes the number of all types of weapons in the vault to max, including SSR. The maximum number of times you can restock in each half of the event is 4, for a maximum of 5 SSRs of each type. Once the SSR weapon in the CP vault changes, it will automatically reset the vault.

The event weapons available range from x2 (non-event specific weapons) to x5 and x8 (SSRs) bonus. Below you can find the weapons included.

Chocobo Farm

To the joy of players not intent on throwing all their disposable income at this game, the chocobo farm returned to normal for this event. You could feed all types of Zegham carrots to the chocobos, and roaming red chocobos gave abilities that counted towards the farm totals as well.

In addition to the normal mechanics, you would gain an 'extra draw' with each Zegham DX and higher you used. This extra draw pool only had one SSR ability each time, and its stock was limited. When a total number (counting all players) of distributed extra draw abilities reached a certain amount, no more were distributed.

The extra draw abilities had a x10 bonus, while regular SSRs had a x8 bonus. Other abilities had a x5 bonus, including the ability Last Resort that was available during the time between this second and the first FF3 event. Non-specific abilities had a x2 bonus.

Green Chocobos

There are quite a few summon stones with event bonuses in this event, most of which are obtainable from green chocobos. They have an event bonus of x5. These stones also made up the majority of the eligible ones for the summon count reward. Additionally you could gain an event bonus of x2 to the Odin stone you could get as a reward from the event Saronia Castle Mysteries.

All summon stones listed below were available in both halves of the event.

Transmutation

Transmutation in this event works much like it has in past events. Once you have them, you can use them to transmute some of the stronger event weapons and abilities.
The number of items is the same as in most other events; stronger weapons and abilities require 400 items un-boosted and go down to 50 required, weaker weapons and abilities require 200 and down to 25.

Additionally, this time there was a special item for transmuting SSR weapons into SSR+ weapons. This transmutation required 150 items.
