a char slot would be nice yes but his statement is still speculatation.. we dont know how many slots. Some think 4 most think 5 and a few hope for 6.

It's all or nothin'!

The CE looks fine. I really like that book, and the Rytlock statue is what makes the cost so high. I had planned to get this edition, but at $150, it's hard to keep to that plan.

The DD is what I'm the most disappointed with. An elite skill that won't get much use, a mini pet, and three temporary/consumable items are not worth $20. Of these, the pet is the best because it's cosmetic. The elite skill will probably be weaker than a racial elite, making it effectively a cosmetic item that takes up an elite slot. I would have gladly gotten this edition if it came with an extra character slot or bank space, but as it is, I'm left deciding between the DE and CE.

If the game is on Steam with the pre-purchase perks, however, I'm just going to get it on there and forget about the CE, which certainly won't be on Steam.

Given that you can't unlock the Elite Skill slot on your hotbar until level 30, I doubt that it will be available to you at level 1.  Even then it is still a nice bonus skill to have at level 30 as it shouldn't cost you any skill points to aquire unlike other elite skills.

I am totally disappointed with CE ingame items. I dont care about posters etc.

All CE items are pretty useless. 5 days bank? Is that a joke?

I think it was orginally proposed as a joke.  One that someone took serious.  I fully agree that five days is just unacceptable.  Can I trade that in on a special dance?

Why are there so many PvP focused items in the CE?  I mean come one two out of the five virtual items are focused on PvP.  I guess a PvP-er could as why there are so many PvE items but really, lets get serious here; we have a mini (a cool looking charr that only some people know about), a banking golem (with a built in five day experation timer), a summoning spell (that is also an elite), a Chalice of Glory (to unlock rewards in PvP) and a Tome of Influence (that is designed for PvP guilds).

 

I am very torn, the best (as I see it) item in the photo of the contents is not even on the list.  What item is that?  The metal box with a map of tyria embosed on it!  So, after discussing it with my wife, we will NOT be getting two collector's editions of the game.  We will be getting one CE and one Digital delux version of the game.  I wonder how much people will be paying for a Chalice of Glory and a Tome of Influence (if it can be sold).

I'm gonna get 34+ ingame items and I'm just going to buy the standard digital edition.

you know, that's the best response in this entire thread.

anet have been awesome to their existing customers and i kind of wish i'd picked up gw1 again and gone through a few of those for the extra shinies. this was definitely creative thinking on their part.

on topic, i've never bought a collector's edition of any game and this hasn't changed my mind. extra bling doesn't matter when a game is awesome already.

Personally, I've always felt CE versions of most MMOs are worthless.  But this honestly has to be one of the worst I've seen.  Might as well get the standard and use the money saved at the cash shop on specific items you really want.  Most people seem like they really only want the elite skill.  Humans already get a similar elite skill that sounds much more bad-ass anyway with http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Hounds_of_Balthazar

Origin? xD

 

 

I think I will get the DDE, extra glory and influence to start off each character could be nice, since I'll probably be playing all the professions, so thats 8 characters in total.

These digital items is redeemed for all your future character right? Not just one?

Agreed.  I've bought around 4 CE's already, and this one is the worst for in-game items.  I would've bought GW2 CE too, but like you said, i'd rather save the money and buy stuff from the in-game store.

Yeah, wanted to buy 2 CE´s for me and my GF too, but since it is quite expensive considdering what you get, we decided to go for 1 CE and 1 Deluxe.

Personally I think this CE has everything that a CE needs to have, no ingame items at all, just miniatures and art books etc. 

 

I'd be pissed if I had to buy a CE just to get a pet ingame, or a special title that I wanted.

 

 

As for the price, well, their art team has won multple awards, so I guess its OK to be kinda expensive, if the CE's were limited I would probably buy 2 of them, and keep them unopened for future sales.

 

 

WoW CE are worth 600$ dolars now

i actually think that the CE is pretty good, saving the difference for cash store would be a good choice as well, but i will just get myself  a CE.

You mean, it's totally unlike the imp-summoning skill that totally wasn't a Game of the Year exclusive for Guild Wars?
No, no... you're right. That totally doesn't exist. I must have imagined it.
Sigh.

You're right, it is totally unlike that, since the imp was to help people leveling and couldn't be used once you reached the very low level cap. But I'm glad you get how it's different.

If you do not care about the monument and the real world goodies then you are not a collector, thus you should not be buying, or whining about the COLLECTORS EDITION.

I've always gone for the CE of games for the sake of the in-game goodies. Sometimes there will be box-exclusives that interest me, but for the most part my "inner collector" is satisfied by the things I can show off to my in-game friends. As far as GW2's offerings go, I'm pretty apathetic about it. The elite skill is interesting, but I can't imagine why I would choose it over any of my other options. A mini-pet isn't enough to justify the increase in price, considering that if I ever do use a mini-pet, I'm more likely to use one I obtain in-game. The other items are single-use or pitifully temporary. I might change my mind if the portable bank gets clarified / changed into something more useful, but right now I think this is the first time in over a decade that I'm going to pass on a special edition of an MMO (that I already plan on playing).

I dunno, I'm certainly a collector of games and I have plenty of CE boxes sitting on my shelves, but the whole jacking-up-the-price-by-$70-with-a-statue is getting a little tiresome. I think it's most troubling with Guild Wars 2 because the character is so obscure and the property itself is still fairly new. I also can't say that the writing for Guild Wars 1 was anything that drew me in much. Taking the hit to my wallet for a statue of Darth Malgus, arguably the most prominent character in TOR's marketing scheme was one thing. The Batman statue for DCUO was also pretty understandable, though I didn't bother with the game personally. Doing it for Rytlock Brimstone? Meh, I'll pass. I'd have been more comfortable with the charr plushy for an extra $10-$20.
