Game Versions and Digital Items

What are the differences between the different editions of Guild Wars 2?

When you purchase a digital copy of Guild Wars 2, or when you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition upgrade, you will receive certain in-game items and benefits. To access those upgrades, register your new account, log in to Guild Wars 2, create a character, and you will be sent your digital items via the in-game mail system. Here is a description of the items:

 

Item Description Heroic Digital Deluxe Collector's
Suit of Legacy Armor This set of armor skins comes within the Heroic Chest. You may choose one set of armor for a character of your choice: Profane, Krytan, or Primeval X X  X
Mithral Box The Mithral Box will expand one character’s personal inventory by 18 bag slots – a very handy bonus as you begin your journey throughout Tyria! X X X
