FFXIV collector's edition - still worth getting?Follow

Is there FFXIV collector's edition still worth getting?

I know that the early access perk is... well, irrelevant now.

Does anyone out there use their Companion Journal (for FFXIV purposes, anyway)?

Is the in-game item obtainable by other means?

For now, the main factor making me doubt which edition to buy is the security token. Can this token be obtained through other means? (i.e. Square Enix)

Thanks for the input!

you can order a security token through SE's store. The journal has like zero interesting art to it, its about as valuable to me as a $.15 composite notebook you'd buy in elementary school.

added: the in game item, onion helm i believe was pre order only.. even if you get it, its useless by level 10, which is like 2-4 guild leves now I guess, or about 2 hours per class, not worth it.

All that said, you could probably get it on the cheap at your local Game Stop. Probably doesn't cost much more than the actual game.

I think its worth getting, mainly for the buddy pass. If you want to save a dollar or two you can buy CE together with a friend and share the (already low) cost.

EDIT: And if you are in the EU I think the cloth map is nice

If you want a security token, that plus the game will cost you nearly as much as the collector's edition anyway, but without the weeks of waiting for shipping.
