    Grind for a digital upgrade for ingame gold isnt a bad idea =)
    Im a bit worried about this "gems for gold" though. After 6ish hours of wvwvw I got one silver in cash. Dont know if thats the intentional flow of income from just leveling or if gains increase while you level as in other games? Because buying gems for gold then... when that single gold is so long away... 600 hours for 1 gold =) If 1 gem is 10 gold, and something to buy in gem store cost 100 gems +, well someone can do the calculations please=)

    Only I can use them, you have to buy them all for me so I can try them!

    Primeval looks amazing! sadly the collectors edition seems kind of expensive, well, now I have a nice goal to achieve !

    This gas always been my concern with the trade market. Converting gold to Gems will be highly sought after and those that play the market well will no doubt dictate that conversion. All I want to do is get 2400 gems trough in game gold to get the 3 extra slots. I have a feeling that will take forever to do and ArenaNet is hoping that is the case so players will be somewhat inclined to just pay for it with real cash.

    Hat should be white. I'll think about the digital deluxe if I manage to get enough gold.

    I will be honest - I haven't yet seen any of the store outfits that have made me think "OMG Gotta Have!!!.

    Surprising because the first cloth outfit I made was gorgeous...and even the starter town outfit is nice...am guessing (hoping) they're saving their stock for launch.

    Digital Deluxe Upgrade
    2000 gems

    Test subject , for future things to come ? :P
    GW2 : Plzbegentle - Ruins of Surmia EU - Sylvari Engineer
    WoW: Vergin - Deathwing EU - Elf Resto Druid (27/05/05 - 02/04/12 Perma-Banned- Unhappy whinning PvP customer - whos begged from 4.1 to get rid of the RNG of Regrowth ... )
    It seems ppl have the energy to whine for a game , for not beeing exactly like their <<main>> game , while it dont have a SUB , and they dont have the courage to whine at their Game Master for slacking and producing few PvE content ...

    Primeval are cool and all but where's the Vabbian armor? My female necro still runs around in it because the obsidian looks horrible.

    the difference now is 20 euro, but with gems is 25 euro... I guess these 5 euro extra are for people that bought it before the game starts not whine :P Rise of Izengard in lotro had lot of things if you pre-purchase and after the expansion launch they sold it again but not with all the benefits..they removed the cloaks from the armor sets and the pocket item for xp boost...so I guess it is a global strategy to still give an advantage to "loyal" people instead of the laters :P

    So a class slot is cost 800 gems? and 800 gems cost 10 dollar/euro? This is not bad..You buy the game and you have 5 character slots. If you ever need more slots that mean you are already playing the game 3+ months, and that if you only just leveling characters. Other MMOs have a 12-15 per month sub and a character slot that you maybe need after 3+ months cost less..make the calculations and give that money :P don't get stressed to buy them with in-game gold.

    If I like the game, every month I will buy 800 gems as if I pay for a "subscription". 10 euro is less than a 3 hours walk on a bar...Then with these gems either I will buy things from the shop or sell them for in-game gold

    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Some of those armors are SICK!

    I especially like the male warrior and necro primeval and the fem ele Krytan.

    Nice, I can see myself getting the DD Edition sometime along the line and getting the GW1 style armours if they're as nice as the heritage sets.

    The baseball cap just makes me laugh seeing as how much they were QQ'ing over it on gw2guru yesterday

    Question is if they will come in all armor classes or only the one shown (primeval heavy, krytan medium and profane light) I'm leaning towards heavy/medium/light due to the last one - Profane only coming in a light version from the first game. I might be wrong though so we shall see!

    Also the DE costing 5$/£ more could be that since after launch you could/can get it using purely in-game gold, though I expect that to be quite a bit of gold for what's literally only 2 permanent items. Then again in -theory- (expensive as hell one) you could buy them simply for the glory boost, unless (and most likey) its a one time thing. Just a silly thought there.

    As for the cap, here's a -silly- hope that it will be a free item for everyone in the headstart as a celebration that the game finaly reached launch time.
    Speculations, speculations

    edit; I believe the gamescom promo is/was supposed to be a shirt with the anet dragon, or atleast that's the image that's been floating around.

    Kinda makes me wish I didn't do the HOM's for the armor..cause that Primeval Skin(for warrior) is way better looking than the HOM armor.

    Edit: Second thought..maybe it isn't. I dunno, hafta see them in game.

    Question being, the Profane one aside (Necromancer), which classes will the Primeval and Krytan resemble.. because some of them I like, and others I absolutely loathe.

    Why would you ever wish that? You have it done, you have the perks granted, and it's there if you want to use it on some characters. Just because you have other options doesn't mean you have to use them exclusively. You have five slots, and then as many as you want to pay for, to add different visuals to.
