The Lost Truth

The Lost Truth (失われた真実 in Japanese) is the first part of the Final Fantasy Tactics event in Airborne Brigade. It introduced no major game mechanics, and only one minor called CP vault.

The event ran from May 1st 2013 to May 7th (first half) and May 7th to May 14th (second half).

Overview

The event region for this event was called Otherworld (FFT), and as expected included location names from the original Tactics game. It also included a 'Tactics Stage' board, see below.

As usual, the daily login bonus included x10 of a random one of the transmutation items.

Gaffgarion

The event boss this time around was Goffard Gafgarion. There were no special characteristics, and regular Espers could appear as well.

As a bonus for all-outing a brigade boss, you could get x1 Tactics Card of a random type (see below in Tactics Stage for details on Cards). All bosses would drop the regular scrolls and gil as rewards. CP was naturally present as well, providing the familiar x2 amount to the winning brigade.

In the second half of the event, Gaffgarion also appeared as 'Super Boss Gaffgarion', an EX version of the regular fight.

Tactics Stage

The Tactics Stage was the other major feature of this event aside from the event bosses. Your purpose was to defeat all enemies in a stage by using Tactics Cards of different types. Clearing a Stage would net you either crystal chest keys or fresh Zegham carrots, as well as additional rewards if you cleared the stage in less than 30 minutes.

Possible 30-min Clear Bonuses
300,000 gil
150,000 gil
50,000 gil

Battle Folio x10
Papyrus Codex x10

The Stages consist of a board with 5x3 tiles. You (Ramza) would always start out in the middle of the far right, and your goal was to take on every enemy that advances from the left. Executing a single action required a Tactics Card. You could obtain Tactics Cards by defeating Gafgarion and other brigade bosses during this event.
Aside from the earliest stages where the enemies were few enough for all to be displayed, the stages would only display the first enemies you'd encounter during the stage, the rest were hidden beyond the left edge of the current stage, ready to advance one step at a time in tune with the visible enemies.

Cards

There were three different types of Tactics Cards available, each corresponding to a different type of attack. The Cards were used automatically on the Stages when in contact with an enemy, and were consumed upon use.

CP Exchange

CP exchange was present in this event for the first time in the form of a CP vault. You could check the vault to see how many weapons of each type you had left to obtain before its contents would reset.
Below are the items available for exchange.

Crystal Chest: Chance of SSR, SR+, SR and R+ event weapons. Requires 50,000 CP and a Crystal Key to open.
Platinum Chest: Chance of SR+ and lower event and non-event weapons. 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 CP vault consists of all the event weapons available from the chests in this event. When you get one from a chest, it disappears from the vault. 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 event weapons available range from x1.5 (non-event specific weapons) to x2 to x3 (SSRs) bonus. Below you can find the weapons included. Note that the non-event specific weapons didn't change between the two halves of the event.

Transmutation

Transmutation in this event works much like it has in past events, aside from the method of obtaining the items. You can get them as rewards for clearing Tactics Stages and as ranking rewards. 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.
