With its unique mix of exposition, puzzles, trap mechanics and interesting, varied boss-fights, the Catacombs was a breath of fresh air in a stale, musty tomb of a genre.

Or the Digital Deluxe, which is still cheaper than the standard one from EB and nets you the bonus in-game items you otherwise only get with the CE.Marius wrote:Or you could just purchase the standard edition online from ArenaNet direct to get the pre-order code?

Is the "downed" thing in the dungeons as well? Where you get a chance to fight back while bleeding out? Only saw you mention the respawn-at-waypoint. Could make for some interesting tactics, keeping bosses away while people try to heal themselves back up... Or some even more spectacular wipes.
