Hello all!

I have the original 1.0 collectors edition and bought the standard ARR edition yesterday to get early access.

Does anyone know if I can use the early access code (as well as the Cait Sith and Moogle Hat codes) on my original 1.0 CE account?

Thank you.

I just used the code in the 1.0 CE, and it didn't work. Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong?

Pre-ordering the game gets early access and the Cait Sith pet and Moogle hat.

You don't get those with 1.0 CE

You can't add a PC pre-order to an existing PC 1.0 CE account (which is what it sounds like you're trying to do). It has to be a PS3 pre-order.

Wait, I'm a 1.0 CE non-legacy. I pre-ordered the PC standard edition to get the EA code. Are you saying that the code won't work for me?

I'm getting mixed answers.

Do I get early access and the bonus items as a player who has 1.0 CE and is a legacy player?

As a 1.0 CE edition holder you get :

ARR CE edition in-game items.

You don't get the following :

Pre-order bonus - Early Access, Moogle Hat, Cait Sith pet

Ok, This is how it is;

Legacy Member = Early Access

1.0 CE = You get the 2.0 SE items (Helm of Light, Coeurl Mount, Behemoth Barding, Baby Behemoth Minion) , Not the standard edition items (Moogle Hat, Cait Sith pet)

Why would you buy a game you already own just for 3 days of access?

Thats what I was wondering, But thinking of it again, He gets 3 days early access plus Moogle Hat, Cait Sith pet and a months free gameplay, instead of 2 weeks which the 1.0 buyers are getting.

He already has CE, he gets that stuff anyway. So anyone else who purchases ARR CE gets the month, the goodies and the early access. He gets half as much time, goodies he was already going to get and early access.

I guess it just doesn't make sense to me. I mean sure it's his money and he can do what he wants with it, but the 2 extra weeks isn't why he's getting it.

Moogle Hat and Cait Sith Doll are preorder bonus items. Not SE special items. You get pre-order bonus items for pre-ordering ARR. SE or CE.

You can be a 1.0 CE owner with legacy status and you WILL NOT get the moogle hat and Cait Sith doll unless you pre-order ARR.

"Players Who Own the FFXIV version 1.0 Collector’s Edition
Players who own the FFXIV version 1.0 Collector’s Edition will receive the FFXIV: ARR Collector’s Edition in-game bonus items (Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Behemoth Barding, and Coeurl Mount) for free. The in-game bonus items will be delivered via Moogle Letter when FFXIV: ARR launches."

I don't get early access as I am not a legacy player, even though I bought and played the game at release in 2010, I just didn't stay long enough to pay for 3 months of sub.

I don't get the Moogle hat or the Cait Sith bonus, either.

The site doesn't state the pre-order bonus' are not available for people who originally bought 1.0 and no one seems to know the answer.

Does it need to? You gotta assume you aren't getting something unless they specifically say you are. You can't go by the assumption that you are getting ARR pre-order bonuses for not pre-ordering ARR because of some criteria you fulfill that hasn't been stated by SE.

Yeah, I was just separating what he already has and what he will get if he pre-orders the game.

Given that FFXIV 1.0 already had an early access associated with it, it's doubtful that early access would be granted again. You have to be legacy or pre-order the game to get it this time around.

It doesn't really bother me, but it does seem like a bit of a cash grab. Same goes for the minions associated with extending the period of your subscription. As much of a problem as people here generally have with F2P and the stigma of P2W, this really isn't any different.

Pretty sure he's saying it doesn't say that 1.0 CE users cannot also preorder to get early access and pre-order items, not that 1.0 CE users should get them automatically (which they obviously do not).

That kinda goes without saying. Anyone who pre-orders the game gets early access. Why would they exclude people who already paid them once?

What seems strange(silly actually) to me is that you can't register two different codes for the same platform on one SE ID. It's not like a tier thing where if you previously had the standard game and found a CE somewhere, you could just upgrade your account with that registration code. Same thing goes for ARR apparently. If you had the standard version of XIV for PC and then purchased the CE version of ARR for PC, you have to register the ARR version on it's own separate account.

Not a big deal if you didn't already have characters that you were attached to, but I thought it was odd that they decided to do it this way. The only way you can upgrade a standard account(PC) to a CE account(also PC) is to purchase the CE... for PS3? Smiley: oyvey

So if I'm legacy 1.0 CE and want the Cait Sith minion, I should preorder the standard edition right? I still get the collector's bonuses from 1.0 so with the standard edition ARR I would have everything?

I don't know if this helps or not, but I am a 1.0 CE player and when I purchased the $29.99 digital download to get the early access and the Cait Sith minion and mog hat, it told me I was getting it for $29.99 instead of $49.99. And showed a -$19.99 credit.

I purchased the digital download for £19.99 also.

I thought this was the case, but no one knows for sure. SE haven't seem to officially stated anything in regards to mixing 1.0 with a new ARR pre-order.

I spoke with SE support (UK / EU) today.

It seems they're unsure about it all as well, which is always reassuring...

I was told "As far as we're aware you can not add a early access code to an existing FFXIV account"

I did just this about 30 minutes ago:

1.0 CE non legacy purchaser. Bought SE digital download from Square-Enix. Added pre-order code to same account as 1.0 Collector's Edition. When I confirmed registration it listed all of the items attached to my account and the Cait Sith and moogle cap were listed.

I have an 1.0 standard account (not a Legacy one). The preorder code applied itself on my account instantly and without any error messages anywhere.

I don't see why that wouldn't be allowed, however. Seems quite straightforward.

Just wanted to update this. Camate made a post saying that there would be a digital upgrade available for the SE of 1.0 to the new CE, but as of yet there is nothing available in the store. Cool option for those who want the bonus in-game items, but no pre-order on it so no early access.

Yeah., I can't go back and confirm it now either. I've looked everywhere trying to help other people. That's why I took a screenshot of it so that I can go back and look at it to remind myself it said it and that I didn't dream it up. Lol.
