For those that already farmed +4s, already have a greater learning tome, and got the +2 fate tome, that CE reward list seems like a huge waste of money/not worth considering.
I'd want a collector's edition to have collector's items. Not just desirable things already purchasable in ddo store / game.
This time around, they need multiple Collector's Editions. At the very least, one geared towards subscribers (and premiums that have bought most, if not all, content packs) and one geared towards premiums. And, it would be up to the customer as to which they want.
Subscriber CE - Greater XP tome or upgrades for lesser XP tomes (people who bought Menace CE already have account wide lessers, as do many people who just picked them up from the DDOStore), XP Stone, whatever "exclusive" pet they're going to bundle with this expansion, and a stipend of TP (in place of content packs)
Premium CE - Same as above, but with a couple of content packs in place of the TP stipend.
Best of all would be an "a-la-carte" CE, to let us combine up to X number of features as we see fit.
Of course, we're probably just going to get a "one size fits all" CE that will be passable, but not really a perfect fit for all.

Probably be more like:
Cosmetic pet of some theme related to the xpack
Druid's Deep pack
Lesser XP tome for all characters
The VIP 10% in-town movement speed
How about a collection of permanent gold seal clerics every few levels similar to what the start kit has now? (Say levels 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18). Of course they would need to be better behaved then some of them are now. No standing in the lava field right next to the island.
Maybe even include a few other classes as well.
My finances are very tight - everything else I can find in game or purchase at some point if I really need it. A permanent companion is so well suited to my playing style that it would probably be the deciding factor for me again.
Would like it to be at LEAST level 25....
I think they gathered enough data about high price items since last summer so I am expecting a $200 package. It's total speculation of course, but I expect to see it this time around as it seems completely consistent with their strategy of offering something for people with a lot of discretionary money.
I don't think it will compete with other store offerings so I wouldn't expect it to include +4 tomes or ottos boxes. It will include some other things instead.
As someone mentioned above, the Permanent Gold Seal Panther pushed me into buying the collector's edition. And seeing that Turbine made a Permanent Gold Seal hireling for the Starter Pack, I'd expect some sort of new Permanent Gold Seal hireling. Hopefully, it will be unique, such as non-playable race or animal.
Also, hopefully it will be a true Gold Seal hireling, unlike the Starter Pack hireling. That hireling can't be used unless you are the same level as the hireling. Very misleading. And a very bait-and-switch maneuver. Additionally, hopefully it can fit into the Hireling Folder, since the Start Pack hireling can't, while the Panther can.
I think a set of choices would work well.
Choose 1: lesser tome of learning for all toons or 5 50% Xp pots.
Choose 1: new exclusive pet or 150 astral shards
Choose 1: 3 pre chosen old adventure packs or 1000 tp
Choose 1: new exclusive perma gold seal baby dragon hireling or Xp stone
Also included, 1000 tp
Based on items that squeak dropped in the dev event on lamma, I'm going to guess that you'll get in the preorder:
An owlbear hireling (similar to the panther)
Flying cat cosmetic pet (calico maybe?) kind of creepy looking
Also, probably you'll also get:
iconic heros (last time around was vet status 7 + xp stone)
Yeah, I expect Iconic Heroes with the Collector's Edition, but I also expect probably an XP Stone again also. Remember last time we got Epic Destinies and Vet Status 7, and the Vet Status was unlockable via favor.
Maybe even an Epic Learning Tome, since there's a cap increase and limited content.
Very nice guesses everyone! I think you will all be pleased with the contents of the pre-order bundles.
