FFXIV Pre-order Collectors Ed. Vs NormalFollow

#1 Jul 30 2010 at 4:21 PM Rating: Default
Soo i was looking at the website for FFXIV and i saw the Collectors Edition comes with a In game item that lets you recover faster after a KO
not sure if it means "When you die you can recover faster" or when u KO A mob and you would recover faster
and also has 7 Bonus Ft.
#1: Early Access - play 8 days prior to the Normal one
#2:behind the sence dvd- Probally good to watch while your game Loads (LOL)
#3:Security Token- something with a password
#4: Travel Journal- Good for journaling lol
#5:Right of Passage-to redeem a personalized Certificate~
#6: Free Game Play - 30 days for free
#7: Buddy Pass- invite a friend to play for free for a Limited time

ok Now does the Collectors Edition Also come with the same in game item as the normal Edition? i would assume so but thought i bring this question Up.

Normal:
So this comes with the goggles that
"Increases the speed of Skill Progession"
which im assuming is For Crafting


Now im getting the collectors Edition but I Want the other ingame item with it aswell :)

If anyone has any idea or any site with New news about About FFXIV i would love to read up on it :)
thanks alot
turbo~

The Onion Helm ONLY comes with the CE and the Goggles ONLY comes with the SE.

The reason to have the Goggles is solely allowing people that starts 8 days later to catch up to the CE people easier. If you want to trade your helm with the goggles, you'l probably have to do what Puppy1 said.

If that's even an option. Starcraft II comes with an ingame pet for WoW, and there is no code, it's only on the same b.net account.

So what if you can only get the helm with an account registered to the CE?

I'm pretty sure they'll instantly send it to your mog house or via mail on the account that is registered to that specific product key.

LOTRO had in-game items given to different beta testa, pre-orders.. etc. Similar to WoW, they automatically sent it to any character linked to the account that registered the specific product key.

.. It's rare/ex to one account only.

Sucks, that the normal edition item is so much better than the onion helm.

I mean, recovering fast if you die is great, but who plans to die THAT much? Unless they expect you to die a lot in this game, which I would hope is not the case.

Call me insane, but I plan to have both items (All 3 if you count the FFXIII registration item). I reserved both versions of the game, and will use both codes and give the game to a friend who was planning on getting it anyway. I know the bonus item description mentions "only characters created AFTER the code is entered, gains relevant item". So my character I create on 9/22 will not get the goggles, but I'll make alt characters in other starting areas just to see initial differences, then canceling the extras when I'm done. If I feel I HAVE to have all on one character, I'm willing to start over.

One weeks worth of work, isn't a big deal in a game I may be playing for several years. A few extra bucks and a reroll is worth getting it right that early on.

Lesser quality graphics/frame rate, and a whole lotta "PS3 limitations" jokes
