WE rarely see special editions filled with so many extras like the first Guild Wars expansion pack. The large and heavy white box holds valuable items for every real GW fan. After a long unboxing process WE spent a lot of time to examine the contents; every single piece of the package is a high quality stuff.
Usually WE don’t mention and take photos of boring user’s manuals, but this release comes with a 126-paged booklet full of high quality pictures and interesting stories from the world of Guild Wars. It explains the basic controls and background story of the species found in the game. The included thick art book has 124 pages and a size of 25×18.5cm filled with concept arts of in-game characters and locations. Under the art book we discovered one sticker of the assassin character, the activation card, some flyers and a cool mousepad with a rubberized back, which sticks to your desk. Other than that there is a 18x25cm sized cloth picture decorated with a high quality print of the in-game Ritualist figure.
One side of the included huge poster shows the world map, the other side displays a beautiful artwork of the two new characters. On the bottom of the box WE found a slim DVD case with 2 game discs, a soundtrack CD in a paper container and a desk calendar valid for years 2006 and 2007. In addition there are also some in-game extras which are activated automatically for collector’s edition owners.
