Heart of Thorns Pre order available. - I am unimpressed

The basic expansion will cost $50 and includes the core GW2 game....this is great for people new to GW2 but it feels like a slap to those of us who have been playing since BETA to not offer a discounted package without the core game. Even if it was $40 to just get the expansion I would do that. Also the expansion doesnt come with a character slot like every previous expansion always has!

at $80 you get some random unlock crap that wont really affect gameplay, and an additional character slot. So the hangglider skin, minipet, and finisher are apparently valued at $20 above the cost of the basic pack and a new character slot. 

at $100 you get 4000 Gems as a bonus(a $50 value) well it would have to be since your paying $50 more for the game. But in fairness if you were inclined to get the $80 Deluxe edition pack then your getting those 4000 gems for only $20 more dollars.

ArenaNet made a concession to community frustration and announced changes to their release and conflicts in the sales and pressure they put on people to buy the game prior to HOT, but then giving GW2 for free for HOT purchases.

Also today was the massive system rewrite for skills, traits, and conditions. Massssssive amounts to read and learn, but not too gamebreaking for the casual player.
