Which one do you usually pick? I usually go with the Safe Helm, but for some reason I can't decide right now.

The Safe Helm stays useful much longer than the Swallow, IIRC.

I usually go swallow on a new game now. Since I never use either in new game+ I don't feel it really makes any difference so I just choose the one that kills faster and with a 30% chance to crit it's a rather significant upgrade over the aeon blade.

the safe helm !!
simply do the rainbow subquest and you'll get a major best weapon in the game.
and that safe helm will still be useful afterward.

unless youre an item collector, which i doubt since you dont wanna go to a game+, just take the helm.

Safe for reasons stated above, however, I don't use either once I have a third haste helm.

Since I play continues New Game+ runs I go Swallow on first run, then Safe Helm on second run.

Swallow is only useful for like 2(fairly long) dungeons. Safe Helm is useful for... well, only one battle in the game really

I've chosen both options before. I like the Swallow. The Swallow has a really high attack power (+50 over anything you might have, if you get it at the earliest moment) and a higher critical hit rate (35%).
You'll use that sword until you get the Rainbow, and even then, the Swallow has a nice +3 Speed that the Rainbow doesn't have.

Others argue that Safe Helm doesn't become potentially obsolete like the Swallow does, and they're right. Safe Helm helps Marles/Luccas bad defense. Thing is, I never needed Safe Helm because there are items that give Protect and Shell, and Swallow owned while I still used it.
