So, I've never found a definitive answer to this question and it's fairly important to me as it will decide which version I order. The normal preorder gets the skill-up goggles, the CE gets the helm. We all know this. The question I have is does the CE get BOTH items, as some people claim but some ads contradict, or is it one item for one, one for the other?

Seeing as I work 10 hours a day the goggles are a huge boon to me and my limited playtime, but I'd like to get the CE if I can do it without losing that boon.

CE gets ONLY the helm. The SE gets ONLY the goggles. The best thing about the CE is that you get to start 8 days early.

The item is the only downside for me for pre-ordering the CE. I'd take the goggles over the helm any day of the week. Any item where you need to die to make use of it is a bad item.

Neither item is very useful and both will probably not take effect when you've reached a certain class level (like 10 or something).

Note about the goggles : They will only be useful for a "certain period of time" according to an interview. They weren't clear, but you can assume they will either become decorative gear after a month, or maybe after lvl ~10. It will not be a permanent effect.

Now every other bonus item (fast shoes, ???gloves, Weakened hat) are all a lot less attractive, if you imagine they will all stop working altogether at X time or X level. They didn't say anything about those 3, but if one item can 'run out of juice' what's to say all the others won't. It's a bad move to not state it in the description.

I'd be kind of irate if the Asuran Gloves became useless after a while. Their effect isn't exactly over powered and their other stats are equivalent to level 1 gloves. The goggles I understand being limited in some way, otherwise they'd be terribly broken.

On a side note though, both items look pretty good.

The journal will have blank pages. You're supposed to write down stories of your adventures, though, I assume many people will use it as a recipe book.

My journal will probably be left in its box or set somewhere on display. Oh and for those getting the CE version, make certain of what name/character you choose! Along with getting that special stuff they make a special adventurer's certificate up with your character name, race, and nation of choosing, printed on it that's supposed to be mailed to your home. Likely which will be whatever address you entered into your SE account.
