Alright, I'm just OCD like that but before FFXIV came out, i reactivated my old FFXI account for the Hermes Shoes, joined SE members and registered FFXIII, and pre-ordered FFXIV to get the Goggles.
Now, because of some communication problems and the fact that i am Canadian, My pre-order did not have the Garlond Goggles in it, even though the box states so (The website liied to me!).
I tried going to the store, they told me that they have no codes and to contact SE, SE tells me to contact the store...
So its been a week and Ive been e-mailing all over the place and there is no solution, and haven't created any characters (that i would have had to delete to get the goggles anyways).
To top it off I checked e-bay by curiosity and the only pair of Goggles code is going for 70$+
I also saw a copy of the EUROPEAN version of FFXIV with the goggles in it for like 25$.
That got me wondering. Would an EU item code work on a NA account?
..or is this just wishful thinking?
Seriously after all this, i almost do not feel like playing anymore...
