I wonder when name changers are coming. It would be really odd to change my male character to female and have a male name.

I'd buy another new char slot but not sure if more professions will come out in future. I already have all 8

Dump your gem and gold reserves on these new deals!  We need you to be gold/gem-poor for when the January stuff comes out!  It's not a closed system, people!  Stop hoarding for the January update!
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

WTB super cheap Total Makeover kits and BLSK's!!!!

Of course, neither of those will probably happen.

You'll likely want a slot for a Tengu ;)

If it did, the price of gems would probably spike enough to make it a total wash anyway. Le sigh.

Less sales, more Precussors on the Gem Store.

I got the pop corn ready.

There's at least a decent chance that if an expansion brings out new races, it'll come bundled with new slots so people with full slots don't feel like they're being pushed to buy or not get the benefit of the new race.
Got any comments or queries about moderation in one of my spheres of responsibility? Make sure I get the message!

Has the sale started now? Anyone care to list what items are on sale and if there are, what are the new items?

Please let there be name changes!
