An exploration event is a type of event in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. They are characterized by having an area map the player must explore in order to obtain rewards. Generally they do not feature collection points like those explorations found in the main scenario.


Unlike the other event types, exploration events are rather varied as to which their goals are, according to the sub-type they belong (though they aren't categorized in the game).

The first sub-type consists in exploring a map with several stages of difficulty, unlocking new areas of the map in each stage and having stronger enemies. After clearing a stage, the players are rewarded with a crafting recipe and their materials must obtained by repeatedly exploring the dungeon. To this sub-type belong the events Lands of Plenty, Demons Unleashed, Macalania Woods.

The second sub-type also involves unlocking new areas of a map by doing the different stages, but these are strictly based on events from previous Final Fantasy games, which Rain's party experience themselves in realistic visions. Such events are The Giant of Babel, The Crystal Tower, The Big Bridge and The Dreadnought.

The third sub-type consists of explorations wherein Rain's party unveiled memories relating to characters in the main scenario, expanding upon their stories. The player would guide Rain up to certain points in the map which triggered a cutscene, and with each difficulty, a new part of the area map (with new cutscenes) would be unlocked. There were three of these (Memories from the Aquapolis, Shadow of the Empire and The Empire of Light and Dark), but they were discontinued as their 'duty' of exploring side stories was taken over by story events.

The four sub-type is a single area map which must be cleared every day during the event period, as the dungeon missions change each day and give new rewards. This non-standard events are mostly Global-exclusive. To this category belong Lunar New Year, Festival of Love and Sun, Sand, and Sea (the latter two also have recipes like the first sub-type).

Finally, the most common and fifth sub-type are those explorations related to King Mog's series events, which appear during te second week of such events and come in two difficulties: Easy and Hard. These are area maps recreating certain locations from other Final Fantasy games (the sole exception being Latius Woods - Past). One mission always gives 10,000 units of the event currency if the player can fulfill it. These explorations open and end with a small cutscene involving Lasswell's party, reflecting on the events they witness. The dungeon boss is often a challenging one, for beginners at least.
