Well, according to the official website, the token only comes with the Collectors edition. I have a token already from playing XI but for the life of me, I can't remember if I ordered it directly thru the POL client or thru SE's FFXI website.
Keep in mind that the goggles, according to Tanaka will probably only be useful during the very early stages of your characters growth.
Thanks Osarion for the info...so it seems like I'm not getting a token from the regular edition =( Anyone else may have an idea where to get the token?
The way I see the goggle is that I'm not sure how much faster it'll help on lvling skills, but even if it's just 1% faster, it's still 1% faster. Also, I think the goggle would be a head gear, so in terms of lvling up, I would probably change to a higher lvl helm with better stats once I reach higher lvl. However, in terms of crafting skill, if the goggle would increase the xp I got by 1%, then I'm still lvling up 1% faster than others at each lvl. And I can wear the goggle whenever I'm crafting in town. As for the Onion Helm, I would expect to change to a higher lvl helm once I got a better stats one. However, in another post a person suggested that even in endgame content, we can use a macro to switch the helm to the Onion Helm right before dying to lower the death penalty, in that case, then the Onion Helm does have its inreplacable value.
