I was bumbed out from the start that this time there is no Arbook, but to have it replaced by just a nicer print of an online for-free available PDF ? .. Thats a bit absurd.
    I agree with you that the replacement of the artbook with the novellas is disappointing. As a whole this new CE was a disappointment to me and has pushed me to make the decision to stop collecting them altogether, because I have no interest in a $40 shelf ornament and mainly collected them for the artbooks and BTS DVDs.

    However, it was stated from the start that the novellas would be made available online, sans illustrations.

    Well before that fancy physical stuff was better. I don't like that it is mostly digital, and I have no need for alliance symbol ...

    If you don’t like it, the response is not to buy it! Hooray, saving like fifty bucks!

    Look, I like the old ones better too, but this one isn’t somehow devalued because the text of the fancy coffee table book is available online.

    Well IMO it is devalued. Yeah saving money is fine I guess, since mounts aren't that amazing I want them (like legion mount), what really made me buy other CE was that collectors quality of art-book, soundtrack on a cd and mousepad (I know not best quality but still). I guess it is time to stop

    It's nice to be proven completely right by A Good War.

    That was a difficult read, esp Elegy.
    Interestingly enough, after doing the questline I imagined just that, my pristess (Draenei), burned in sooth & blood covered clothing holding an unconscious Nightelf child in her arms when she stepped through the portal to follow Genn.
