    This might be the first time I splurge and buy the collector's edition. Very nice job!

    If its just a heroic alt, a boathouse and a second merc skin, then this will be the first time since the collectors/preorder bonus started that I wont be buying it. Toss in a couple 36 slot bags and 10charges of true double xp pots to make it worth the $50 upcharge.

    Utterly unimpressed...
  6. complexication Augur

    Well...y'all certainly upped the ante by throwing in a heroic character.

    I could live without more wall hangings though. The rest I'm really impressed with.

    For me, I rarely have purchased the collector's addition (just RoF basically and only on one account), but with the boat and the heroic character, I'm definitely in for this.

    That house rocks!

    I'm NOT impressed at all with the amount of items that will be given along with the $90 purchase of a Collector's edition. Bags, Armor Ornamentations, Mounts, and Potions also need to be thrown in.

    Is the heroic character going to be a true heroic character, or just like one of the freebies yall gave us a while back that shouldn't be deleted, and / or changed to a different class?

    Bags are way overdone now imo. Just doing all the content rewards you with so many big bags through achievements. These are nice items that can't be obtained through doing content.
  11. Kiillz Augur

    its serious over KILL, more useless paints and what ? just a heroic toon? As previously stated throw in a 40 slot bag, a zone over clicky something in those useful lines....otherwise frankly I m over the collectors and I ll just hit standard.

    24slot bag really? in a $90 selling item couldnt do better then that??
  12. Roshen Brand Manager

    The Collector's Edition adds an additional Heroic Character to your account. This is not a trial Heroic Character like the previous promotion you refer too.

    While you can delete a Heroic Character to change it to a different class, please note that each additional Heroic Character you create using the same 'feature' won't start with things you can trade away, like Plat or Bayle Marks.
  13. Aliano Journeyman

    Zone clicky. Some sort of in game item thats useful, and makes you actually want to spend the extra cash without laughing at yourself.

  14. Jasazick New Member

    I'll probably get the collectors ed for an alt account that I was already planing to toss a heroic character on.

    Add a REALLY useful zone clicky and I'd buy it for both accounts. Who cares about paintings?

    Will there be content in the expansion that a lvl 85 heroic character can actually handle?

    Does this add an additional character slot with/for the Heroic?

    Add that: https://www.everquest.com/news/heroic-character-faq
    Drop one of: Players will be able to claim a single Wayward Lady with this Collector’s Edition. Players will receive a single Wayward Lady in this Collector’s Edition.
    Clarify if Ankylosaurus and Arc Worker are one per account or character.
    All Heroic characters don't come with spells, can also correct that on the FAQ.
    It's not thousands of AA Abilities or AAA it's thousands of points of AA, can also correct that on the FAQ.

    So no pre-order I heard? Does that mean we have to order the expansion on the day it goes live? If so have you (SOE) prepared for a surge of people using your site all at once?

    The price on the collector's edition is absolutely ridiculous. $90 for you to take/copy the pirate ship out of Jardel's Hook and a merc skin? Im not mentioning heroic character cause you can already buy this and its not a selling point at all. Price should be $60 tops or less and offer more unique items. I dont and try not to complain often but... just wow.

    $90 NOT worth it at all, that a $30 offer at best. SOE get ur hands out of my wallet before you get agro.

    if you changed the "raptoid" mercenary into a character illusion, I think you will yield more collectors editions. raptoid sounds cooler then lizardme due mainly to the fact I think they resemble raptors then generic lizards!
