Collector's Events began as similar to Survival Events in that the player was given a single dungeon in which to play, with a choice of difficulty levels. The player could play through each difficulty level as he saw fit, provided he had enough Stamina to fight all the battles within.
Beginning with Doorway to Another Realm, the format was changed to play as most events have, in that the player is given one scenario and multiple dungeons in which to play. Each dungeon comprises three battles set at a specific difficulty, and must be unlocked sequentially to progress up the difficulty scale set for the Event.
Still, in many ways, these Events resemble a regular Dungeon; but in place of defeated enemies simply dropping Gil, they may also drop another form of currency, which varies with the Event.
Collecting event currency Edit
Event currency may be collected as common drops from enemies fought during battle. The amount dropped per enemy is determined by the player's chosen difficulty level, and may also be determined by the type and number of enemies fought. The player must complete a battle within the Dungeon to collect all acquired currency. The player must complete the Dungeon at each difficulty level to receive its Rewards at each level. All collected currency is added to a bag given to the player for the Event.
For each difficulty level cleared, the player receives additional currency in the same manner as a regular dungeon would distribute Gil and other Reward items; the same requirements for completion, mastery, and first play still apply. The higher the difficulty, the greater the bonuses.
During a Collector's Event, Dr. Mog or one of his crossover allies will open a shop for the player to exchange his currency for exclusive items. However, the shop possesses a limited number of each item offered. For example, player characters and/or Memory Crystals can only be acquired once during the Event, and almost always at prices not payable by completing the easiest difficulty.
Although the Collector's Event dungeon is usually open for the same 10-14 day period as other Event Dungeons, the Event Shop is open for several days after the Event to allow the player to spend his currency and exchange it for desired items.
