    What are some of the things you guys most like to see as bonuses for pre-order/CE or that have been a part of pre-orders/CEs of other games that you really love. Free game time? Mounts? Pets? Titles?

    My number one favorite was TSW allowing name reservations. The second is early beta access. I'm not a big fan of things like immediate mounts or gear, as I enjoy leveling so don't need it speeded up.

    For this game? I want a Granok figurine made out of rock and a t-shirt and a ha--, oh wait I already have a hat (sorry Maddog, I had to).

    In all seriousness though, if I get a collector's edition, I want something that isn't virtual... That I can add to a collection or something.

    Name reservation would be cool.

    Things I think about to have in a collectors edition, some apparel (hat, shirt), art book and a nice poster I can put on my wall. In-game items would be nice to show I bought a CE, special mount or maybe a nice costume.

    I understand that :D I too have too much random <REDACTED> in my house. I do like having more meaningful <REDACTED> though :p

    I would love to get a exclusive pet or in game home decor options that are CE only. Or fun cosmetic items, think tabard of the lightbringer in wow, or like sparkle powder effects in SWTOR.

    If they offer beta access for pre-ordering a CE then that would seal the deal for me (assuming I don't get picked).

    I would want a replica of the space ship from the trailer with little figurines of the 3 stars from the trailer. Yep, that's what I want.

    I prefer digital stuff, but so far, I haven't seen a CE worth the price.

    I rarely find CEs worth the price of admission, but I am probably going to splurge for W* CE ifonly because I want to support Carbine and the game as muchas possible.

    I bought SWTOR CE and that was a huge waste of money. I'll still buy WS CE though

    I bought the SWTOR CE as well but I love the statue. Fits well into my collection.

    Wasn't the swtor CE like 150 bux? That's way to much for me.

    I got the digital deluxe for 60 or 70 i believe

    Deluxe soundtracks that have most if not all the compositions for the game is the main thing I look for. Name and guild reservations would be nice as well. :)

    ^this but also:

    The only physical stuff I would love to get in a CE would be an authenticator. I always buy one for every game that offers it.
