Digital Edition ($59.99/50/55)

Digital Deluxe ($79.99/65/75)

Collectors Edition ($150/130/150)

What's annoying is that I'm forced on the French page because I'm French-Canadian and the website thinks I'm European when it sees my French OS.

Except that we tend to be bilingual and play on US servers because not only the EU pricing is a scam but on EU servers everyone sleeps when North-Americans play.

Most of ArenaNet's site allows to switch to US locale but not their buy page. I hope this is just an oversight and gets fixed before April 10th, I don't want to mess with Windows 7 language settings just to open a web page!

Getting the standard seems to be the most logical option. 2 standard copies for 1 CE with 30 left over. Yea why not. I'll get someone to play with me on launch/3 days early and I have money to go out to a pub (I work out ~13-17 pints of cider depending on location :D).

Another way to look at it is it's a figurine of a Steve Blum character.

At least they're not segregating servers!

You're welcome.

When you live in an inferior country, you get an inferior deal. If you're not American, it's like you're not even trying.

Multiply those 59,99 by 1.81 and you get the price for my country.
At least in today's exchange rates. Hope it goes down till 4/10.
