Either the Mistfire Wolf Elite will be imbalanced, or few in their right mind will use that skill instead of their profession or racial elites. I don't know when this DD elite will be available. If its available at lvl 1, it'll be marginally useful. If it's available at lvl 30 like the rest, it'll be almost useless.
The mini's value is completely personal. You either care about it or you don't. If you can sell it in-game, it may have an objective worth in gold.
There is not enough info about the golem to determine its value. If it's active from Day 1, it will be almost useless since there are few items of value during early gameplay that someone must immediately deposit into the bank. If it can be activated later... I don't know. I haven't found any prolonged stretches where even 4 8-slot bags aren't sufficient to store the valuable loot. Time will tell.
The Glory and Influence items also depend on the player, but somewhat objectively. For the PvEer without a committed guild, both items are essentially useless. For someone who's dedicated to a guild and PvP regularly, the value is maximized. However, since the actual bonus amount is unknown, the items's value is questionable. In addition, for anyone not regularly earning glory in pvp and whose guild isn't regularly earning influence, I am sure the bonus from the items won't make much difference.
It seems like the mini is the only item that currently has definite value, albeit largely subjective, for the majority of players. Over all, I think the digital deluxe package is meh.
I tend to agree with your analysis. The elite if it's not useable at L1 and it probably isn't, won't be worth much unless that mist wolf is really good.
From what I've read the golem banker lasts 5 days (countdown) from when you first activate it. Not 5 days of game time but 5 real days so if you activate it and don't log in for 4 days you've pretty much lost it, which IMO is pretty damn lame.
Don't have an opinion on the glory item. The influence item will all depend on how much influence it gives. If it's something lame like 100 it'll be pretty much worthless. If it gives something like 1k it'll be worthwhile to use for a starter guild boost.

I plan on selling my Tome of Influence to the highest bidding Guild. I figure some early cash can always come in more handy than an influence boost.
Better hope it has a worthwhile value and not something like 100 inf.
