The bundle’s worth far more than 2400 gems (the two mount select licenses alone are worth that much), so it mostly depends on how many of the items included are valuable to you personally.

What’s this? Asura and the Charr have female version of the armor? They didn’t feel like being lazy this time?

The 1 on the Charr looks alright for me. The 1 on Asura… at least make it closer to the Charr’s would be better IMO.

It was never laziness – it was a conscious design choice to make the sexual dimorphism of Charr and Asura to be different than the usual “stick a pair of tits on it” so common in gaming and/or fantasy world design. Therefore, it made sense to use the same armor (or perhaps was a convenient side effect)

Well… As it stands the War Supplies is pretty good value, although I wonder if this is ANet’s experiment with introducing “premium subscriptions”, just under a different name. It’s good to see that the Exotic Breeds mounts will be available for purchase separately; I wonder if the Branded weapons will get the same treatment.

Every time you bounce, you have to yell “HONEY BADGER DON’T CARE!” Even though it’s not a honey badger.

The trouble with these bundles for me is as always finding one where I actually want at least 50% of the items.
Sadly for me the main item, the mount picks, aren’t really of interest since there’s nothing in this new set I really like the look of. Much of the rest is stuff I either already have, or have no interesst in.

I dont begrudge Anet any fund raising schemes. This slow release bundle is an odd direction though. If you ever planning on buying specific mounts then the bundle is worth it on that alone I guess.

Well two select licenses is worth 2800 gems (1400 ea iirc), so even if you don’t want the outfits, dyes, vouchers or keys, you are seeing a bargain.

Re: fundraising schemes, I’m torn. On the one hand I loathe microtransactions and paid subscriptions in all their forms; on the other hand I want to help ANet out financially given that the company’s obviously had some trouble recently and we won’t see another paid expansion for a long time (if ever).

The gem store becomes a lot more palatable to me when I start thinking of it as a tip jar.

Not sure what prices are like in your currency but the cost of 2000 or 3000 gems is equivalent to a triple A game in my country. I’ve bought the largest supporter pack with each expansion and that s it for guild wars. I’m not putting anymore into it :/

Those weps will match nicely with shatterer’s backpack, and maybe even icebrood gauntlets with the right dyes.
