$9.99, I bet.
What's the maximum number of Character slots?
Well, people havent played wow. With subfee and extremely high cost for faction change, server transfer and even appearance change.
ANet would be crazy if they charged anything less than 9,99 dollars, because it's money like this that will keep them rocking between selling release box and expansions. I want them to make money enough to keep the game somewhat regulary updated
WHY AM I NOT PLAYING THIS YET?!
Having character slot numbers sorted feels like an approach to the minor stuff that accompanies the herald of a release date. How far along do you think the beta is to being in a release state?
But from what I've seen from coverage so far, it looks amazing, I can see myself getting lost in the starting areas for such a long time, there just seems like so much to do there. I can see why selling extra slots would seem profitable.

Next week...we’ll have some very specific information about an upcoming Guild Wars 2 beta event – I guarantee you will not want to miss it!
And that's all we know "for sure" right now
When they announce a beta for us, I will jump off my chair, run around the office for 15 minutes screaming WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Not to bad then, at least its 1 for each race although if you want one of each class you will have to pay more, im pretty happy with that.
I can't say I'm happy about it, but I don't see why character slots would be terribly expensive, so I'm willing to buy another three so I can have a complete set of alts to choose from.
Five works for me. I'm not sure why some people seem to be upset about approx $5-10 for an extra character slot. That's really not that much money even if you're still in school. I'll buy my three extra slots right off the bat most likely, but I can't see myself actually getting to my 6th-8th character for quite a while.
I'm happy with the number of character slots. Four at release sounds reasonable.Let's face it, we won't have 8 characters at day one, no natter what. And with the the in-game shop will provide additional slots for good prices, AND that will help support the company in a small way. Seems pefect to me
5 is more than enough for me, 1 for each race.

5 is what I had expected so I can't say I'm surprised.
From what I noticed "PvP Character" doesnt take up any space (since it changes your main char bit) Im totally fine with 5. Will take some time for me to fill other 4 (professions I wanna check the most are: Warrior, Thief, Engineer, Mesmer, Guardian). When I decide I want another one... then I will buy it. Doubt prices would be really expensive, atm in GW1 store a character slot is 9euro. Which for a loooooooooong time will be more than fine payment (especially that I dont have a sub fee to pay monthly).
So yeah in this model... I dont really mind and find 5 just perfect. I might level few diff professions on one slot and end up deleting them if I dont like em enough.
Kind of expected 5 slots and that's fine by me.
Doing all the stuff I want on 5 characters will take some time (probably 1000s of hours).
Will of course at some point buy at least 3 more to cover all professions.
If you buy 1 slot each month you'll still walk away with more money then paying a sub fee of $15/15€ every month.
