Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe Upgrade Issues

Update 09/16/12

It looks like the bug has been fixed, my son noticed after the most recent round of patching that he now can select and add the Mistfire Wolf to his character as an elite skill where it had been grayed out the last 3 weeks.  Do you still see a problem if you found this article?

 

My son worked hard doing housework the last few weekends to earn the Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe upgrade to his account where he would gain the following benefits:

  • Mistfire Wolf Elite Skill
  • Mini Rytlock
  • Golem Banker
  • Chalice of Glory
  • and Tome of Influence

The only problem is when you purchase the Digital Deluxe after you already bought the game which costs 2000 gems, then there appears to be a bug with the Mistfire Wolf Elite Skill where it won’t unlock for any existing character accounts you have created even if they are Elite skill eligible (Level 30).

I confirmed this appears to be an issue as it was reported by several members of the Guild Wars 2 community.

If you create a new character after purchasing the Digital Deluxe version of Guild Wars 2 then it will be accessible to new characters, just not for any previously existing that were created prior to upgrading to the Digital Deluxe.

I haven’t seen a response from ArenaNet or NCSoft about whether they confirm the bug on their side and are going to release a patch for it, but for now this is something to consider if you wanted to upgrade to the Digital Deluxe, note you won’t get the Mistfire Wolf Elite skill for any existing characters already created prior to the Digital Deluxe upgrade.
