Patch 4.2 brings several updates to the Feast including the new map “Crystal Tower Training Grounds,” adjustments to battle length, and the new Light Medal effect. The new PvP team feature will also be added to encourage stronger bonds between participants.
New Map: Crystal Tower Training Grounds
In commemoration of the Eorzean Alliance's declaration of the dawning of the Seventh Astral Era, a grand melee is to be held. The chosen venue: new training grounds fashioned in the image of the highest reaches of the legendary Crystal Tower. In that ancient seat of power re-envisioned, the wolves gather for the Feast!

Updates to Rules
Battles have been made shorter and more dynamic, and feature the new Light Medal effect that reduces damage taken by a participant as their number of medals held decreases. Adjustments have also been made to the UI, making it easier to see the number of medals held and status effects.
Create a team of between four and six players and communicate using a specialized group chat feature. Each team that participates in the Feast will be given a rating. High-ranking teams will earn rewards and the right to enter tournaments.
