Collecters Edition Items Worth It?

#1OpticalcontactPosted 8/23/2013 1:29:58 AM
Has those who have played the beta extensively seen or experienced any of the collecters items or something of sort? I'm talking about like the Helm of Light or the Coeurl Mount. Are they unique enough to warrant the 20 dollars increase in price?

No one's got to experience them... But they're no big deal. Considering how many mounts are available at launch alone, I imagine a lot of people will move on from the Coeurl pretty quickly.

Is a level one helm that will sit in storage worth it? A minion sure isn't to me. Barding for your chocobo? Meh.
But are they worth it to you? I don't know.

not sure, got it anyway, apparently the mog cap give 10% bonus exp, so i cant wait to see what the helm does. as for the mount, i think it's a cool addition to the game, i think its worth. It's also nice to see more than chocobos as mounts

I sent you a PM with some info for getting a discount on the game if it helps you make a digital collector's purchase. As for the items...idk really, they seemed fun enough for me to get them for the discounted price.

I'm more getting it for the physical bonuses - art book, etc.

The digital bits are nice enough - I love me that Behemoth barding and will rock out the Helm on my 1-10 classes and once again when the vanity slots come in - but are they worth $20 by themselves? ...No, not really.

The physical one appears to be sold out on Amazon and the store. Which makes sense since launch is so soon.

Thanks for all the answers guys!
