I'd only want it after I'd finished my first playthrough.

This will be an epic guide. I'll browse through it and after finishing the game might look more in depth at some of the strategies suggested, though I am not buying it for the help so much as the coolness.

If I buy it, it'll be after my second or third play through to do a final sweep before entering into the PvP aspect. Other then that, I want everything to be a surprise. I've been avoiding videos to keep from seeing any of the world.

I like the game for the challenge, so going in blind is going to be what's best for me. XD

I'd pretty much only want it for the item, spell, and weapon listing/upgrades. Not really the locations, but purely the listings...though, I'm pretty confident someone with the guide will upload every piece of that information into the wiki for free.

You think their character building section will actually be good and accurate, or do you think it'll be like the first builds to enter the wiki?

Is this the same guide bundled with CE?

Nah, this is the guide that convinced Namco to downsize the guide we got for free. This guide will cost $20-30 USD.
