Has ArenaNet released how many character slots we get?

I guess you will probably be able to buy extras, but how many slots do you get right out of the box?

GW1, you initially got 4 iirc and extra slots for every xpac you bought.

What will be the max number of characters on an account?
5 character slots will be available but as with guild wars you will be able to buy more slots.

I just wonder if those 5 slots will be the universal number or if CE boxes will come with a couple extra

Like my helm? It adds +5 sexterity.

5 slots per server or 5 total?
if 5 total then xfd never making a necro, thief, or guardian (assuming I like the 5th class - if not thief may get made eventually)

Definitely CE will get at least one more than normal editions.

Given that we can switch servers with minor effort, it's most likely five slots total.

Which makes sense. Five races, five slots, enough to make one of each.

And given the way PvP works, people won't need a dedicated slot just for a PvP character.
