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=)
Your lord is under attack! Your lord is under attack!
800 gems is $10 isn't it? 2k for the upgrade...that sucks.
O my, happy for the Primeval skin!
Tomoko Eternal Life, Kilik Eternal Sun, Eira Frozen Hearted, Ashara Emberlight,
Vuug The Deceiver, Grash Gravebuilder, Asgaut Divine Soul, Lera Dreamstealer
MUST HAVE that celebration hat!!
The hat kinda sucks XD, could be way cooler .
I really wanna know how the armors work? One character only can use it? Or one character at a time? Omg
An in game hat?
strange in tyria lol.
Oh my god I hope those skins are not town clothes.
Hat should be white. I'll think about the digital deluxe if I manage to get enough gold.
Digital Deluxe Upgrade
Test subject , for future things to come ? :P

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
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 problem when you make a game F2P is systems need to be designed around annoying players enough to pay. Some games are less annoying than others, but at their core they need to give you a reason to spend money. Burying pay-to-win mechanics under an initial layer of skill-to-win, providing advantages that become required for competitive play, roadblocks or surprisingly reduced game functionality tucked underneath paid barriers that weren't obvious when you started.
Some of those armors are SICK!
I especially like the male warrior and necro primeval and the fem ele Krytan.
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.
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.

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.
