As the majority of you all should know; there are two special items that can be obtained by pre-ordering the special or standard versions of FFXIV.
Lets take a look at these items!
I really like the look of these goggles, and the skill seems nice, but they have not made it clear to what extent/rate it increases the progression of skills. Definitely something I would like to have at early levels.
Now the second item!
It does not look at cool to me as the Goggles, but it does look as though that unlike the goggles (or just possibly unlike them), it looks like it provides some defensive capability. I am not sure what the effect means, or exactly what it does, but it sounds like it would increase healing maybe, if the case is that you do not respawn with full health after getting KO'd, or maybe it increases your healing rate during the passive mode, or after being resurrected, if it does not have more defense than the goggles (if either of them have any) it seems at this moment that the Helmet is the short end of the stick.
Final Opinion: I believe they are about equal if the helmet has defensive capability.
What do you guys think?
