    I think you just made a lot of VIPs very happy with the Druid, lol. I thought the price was huge until I saw everything you got with it. I would include the cost of the items listed on the FAQ page on the prepurchase announcement page.

    In the first comparison table, Druid class is mentioned.
    It is indicated, that Druid class is included into the price of Collector's edition and Standard edition.

    Do I understand this correctly? If I purchase the Standard edition, I get the Druid class?

    "What is a Creature Companion? What are “tricks” and “collars”?"

    Illusion, Tolero. A trick is what a ***** does for money.... Or candy!

    Very nice, actual information on a pack before it is released. This is very welcome.

    However, I have a few questions:

    Will the DDO epic classics and DDO classics bundles be of any use to someone who already has access to all current adventure packs?

    Will it be possible to buy the expansion with TP in the DDO store once it is released?

    Are "epic destinies" the epic levels that have been announced, and if it is part of the purchase, does it mean we will have to pay for being able to advance in epic levels?

    edit: apparently my first question was answered while I was still typing it

    edit2: so were my other questions after I read the faq. Maybe I should have read it before I made a post in a haste that turned out to be a waste of space...

    The packs are really nice for people that don't have most of that stuff, but otherwise a bit of a hurt.

    I think the base would be good for those who already have the epics and those quests. All total they would come to 5680 tp. Think it's 8.2k on bonus for 60 bucks. So the 30 bucks would be a pretty much even for the gain. (ud cut out the 1500tp druid class)

    Standard seems like a waste. Even without those things it really only gives the druid. (Well and 1 greater tome but not sure it justifies.) where in tp it would net ya 1600. Course this isn't factoring in any bonus's or %off of items either.

    Premium however actually does have merit. (to sly you dogs) Again if you don't have the packs it's ok, vet 7 is still eh because hell most are tring. Be ok one day when we ditch our characters and start anew on a new server.

    But the prize jewel for that 70 bucks is the tomes. The greater sure but the lessers for EACH character. That's what makes it tempting to not go basic. Not sure how much the tomes individually would cost though. So id still want to do some math in percentages.

    Also sweet jesus 1500 for the druid class? That better be the most amazing kickass class of beings ever to this very date. And by god had it better be all powerful. Overpowered should be an understatement on those puppies. Cause in that ballpark I fullheartedly expect to pay to win lol.

    That's very helpful link, BUT (but is ussually followed by truth) according to FAQ, we should find some info about payment methods on pre-order page - and I see none. And what exactly are "“DDO Classics” and/or “DDO Epic Classics”? Being premium player I already have some adv packs, and I'm not going to pay for them second time. And what exactly are Eveningstar Challenges - is it something like Cannith Challenges, or is it name of some adv pack?

    Frankly, seeing that preorder page and FAQ I still don't know what do those offers include.

    EDIT: K, I see listed adv pack bundles above.

    What quests/packs are included in the DDO Classic adventure packs and what quests are included in the DDO Epic Classic adventure packs?

    Also, it appears that Druid will be "free to VIP" only if they purchase "Standard" or "Collectors" MotU. That suggests that Druid will not be free to VIP if they purchase the "Base" expansion. That doesn't sound very "free".

    Also theirs the questions thing here http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=363362

    Basically the epic thing is the epics we have now. and the classic pack is 5 random packs. One of which is the carnival to complete and the others aren't that grand.

    That big $79.99 was the first number i saw, and it seriously sent my blood pressure up a bit. Then I saw what you got and I was like, woah. It might soften the shock if the bundles where but in the other order though.

    I am not sure if I am liking this. I knew this expansion wont be free to ViP. But as I sit here and think about this, its just MORE stuff for ViP's to not have. Seems that is there intent of recent updates.

    But at least they are giving plenty of notice on what is in what bundle, so at least the playercore and start saving up.

    A couple of big questions for me:
    Is there a way to unlock druids for free in game for ViPs, or just this "$50-$80 purchase" type of free?

    and i agree, getting all the packs when one is already ViP is kinda silly, This makes me think of NOT staying vip. I always figured a reliable cash flow is more important than spikes.

    (I don't mean to start the doom, it just makes me sad. The basic expansion does not give anything but quests, and it costs the amount of the Vanilla wow. The high end expansion costs more than most MMO's starting price.)

    *shrugs* I know I will scrape around to get the 80 bucks to get the big pack, It just makes me sad. Do those who already bought some Packs get some sort of discount? Due to repeating a purchase?

    How about a bundle with druid, the FR packs, the tomes, and the pets? I think that would appeal more people than the big premium one
