Will "Summon Mistfire Wolf" be available through the game if I don't preorder?

I need a signature.

There is no available information on that specifically, but i would highly doubt it'd be obtainable through other means.

Usually, you can "Upgrade" a normal purchase to a deluxe edition digitally for MMOs now. You can do this with Rift, with SWTOR, and I believe there are some pet upgrades you can do from the in-game shop in GW1 as well.

While I can't say for sure (the game isn't out yet), I would say it is likely you can buy the normal edition of the game at any time, and upgrade your account to get the items from the deluxe edition. The only items you are likely to never be able to attain later are from the collectors edition, which are all physical items (a statue, some art, soundtrack CD, etc.), so it doesn't look like you will ever be screwed out of being able to pick up the digital items if you act later instead of now.

doubt it. they packaged exclusive emotes with GW CEs that weren't available through normal gameplay or even the store later. however, there will probably be other cool elites to collect.

This skill isn't exclusive to the CE....

I wonder how good of an ability it will be. I can't imagine it giving too big of an advantage.

What advantage? It's an elite skill. It should be powerful, but you can only have on elite skill at a time.

I bet that it will be a huge boost until you are high enough level to get your first elite skill, then it will become obsolete. This means that it will help players with early game play but won't give them an unfair advantage when it gets to the harder parts of the game.

...pure speculation btw, but pure logic gold

There is no try, only do and do not.

You're forgetting one thing - we need to unlock utility skill slots and the Elite slot is the last one we unlock. It won't really help in early game.

well, how early do you get your first elite skill? until then, at least you have this since level 1.

unlocking elite is the other part of the question. is it unlocked if you pre-purchase so that you can use the free skill from the beginning?
