    1. Blaze is right, the campaign units aren't ☆13 but 12☆ Lightstream units. Sadly they don't even give you Erebos stones to manually upgrade them. So pretty useless.

    2. yeah, looking for info in the official jp news, is a 2 part campaign for the units, so the next part should give you the mats to upgrade it to 13*, 2nd part coming on the 23rd

    3. It is the intended reward. Swiki had the info wrong and likely is where it was gotten from. The stones will be handed out next week, as there is a part 2 to the campaign.

      On a more subjective side to this,damn it is dumb they don't just give it out all at once.
