ArenaNet has posted a look on its blog tiled Inside the Collector’s Edition – Making of the GW2 Book as well the making of the Rytlock Figurine, both of which are included in the collector’s edition of the game. If you click the images on each page, you can read more details on each offering such as the creation of the Mesmer class, as well as an up close and personal look at the Rytlock Figurine – which is bad ass.
