Festive Fantasy was a global-exclusive, holiday-themed Special Event in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and was the direct successor to the Festival of Orbs event from October 2015. While laid out nearly identically to its prequel, Festive Fantasy added additional features typical of the game's third wave, explained below. In the global release, this event ran from December 17, 2015 to January 2, 2016 (UTC).
The main theme of the event was "Prelude" from Final Fantasy XII. The dungeon theme during this period was "Faerie Battle" from Final Fantasy IX. The battle theme was "Chocobo-Chocobo" from Final Fantasy IV.
Like its prequel, the Festive Fantasy issue was comprised of multiple parts:
- A playable dungeon with the following:
- Five-phase, five-tier layout, including Single Plus dungeons.
- Guaranteed Orb and materials drops by phase
- Increased Gil drop rate per tier
- Additional modifiers to the Daily Login Bonus over the entire event
- Double EXP per battle over the entire event
A one-time Lucky Relic Draw "Beginner's Choice" was added in tandem with the event, but a relationship between the two is not clear or has yet to be established.
Unless otherwise noted, all enemy draws were from Final Fantasy XIII. Record Synergy was not enforced.
If a Cactuar or a Gigantuar was defeated in battle, higher-level Orbs were dropped than were normally offered for a given tier.
