Operation Jenova

Operation Jenova (ジェノバ討伐ミッション) was the main part of the FF7 event in Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade. It introduced a special location for a part of the event, and was the first to include weapons and abilities that could not be transmuted with the regular items but required specific ones instead. This event was also a long one, coming in three parts, each of which introduced more or different things to do.

The event ran from February 27th to March 17th, equally divided between its three parts.



The event expanded the event region from the pre-event, and also introduced a special event area with Mako reactors. Your goal was to depower the mako reactors to 0%, at which point a Jenova (see below) would spawn. Once that Jenova was defeated or escaped due to time-out, all reactors would be reset to 100% and you could start again.
You could only enter a mako reactor to depower a part of it when you had a reactor keys in your possession. They would drop from the other Jenova available.

This event also had 10 random materia (see below in the Transmutation section) as a daily log-in bonus. During the Extra part, they had a high chance of being black.


The first event boss in this event's first part was Jenova-LIFE, which you could encounter in event areas. It would drop the regular CP, scrolls and transmutation items, but sometimes also reactor keys. Once the reactors were powered down, a Jenova-DEATH would spawn. It would yield more than the regular amount of CP.

For the extra part of the event, the bosses were changed. Now the regular event boss was Jenova-DEATH, while the one spawned by mako reactors was Jenova-SYNTHESIS. They would behave like their counterparts in the previous parts of the event.

Deathcount Rewards

Killing Jenova-DEATH a certain number of times gave you certain parts for the airship Highwind. Below are listed the required numbers of kills and their corresponding rewards.

CP Exchange

CP exchange in this event was much like CP exchange in any other event. You could buy scrolls or various chests with your CP, and chests had a chance to give you various weapons. Below are listed the weapons available from this event. Note that all of them were available from the Extra portion of this event.

Red chocobos could be found in the event region. In addition, during the Extra part gold chocobos also appeared. Both types of chocobos gave you various abilities, listed below.
The summon-count rewards from the pre-event were obtainable from chocobos in parts 1 and Extra this event. Chocobos in Extra also gave part 2 abilities as well.

Transmutation worked much like in any other event. You gained transmutation items from various sources, and then used them up to make your weapons and abilities better.
The exception in this event were several (mostly) ranking-reward weapons and abilities. You could only transmute those with black materia.
