If you were wondering what's coming with it, have a look:

I would love to have the lorebook, but I'm still going to pass, personally. You can all tell me about how you put Molag Bal on your nightstand ;)

I don't want to get the Imperial Edition as I'm against it and don't care about the statue particularly... But that book has hooked me like a dark anchor... Its what I want most right now... At this point I would rather get that lorebook in my hands than a full unlimited version of TESO with instant emperorship, god-powers and no humans on the face of Nirn...

"...and this very cool box. This collector's edition is going to be available for a limited time at selected retailers... They made me say that. That's marketing speak." -Lawrence Schick

I've already pre-ordered the digital version, but the lore/art book looks pretty cool for avid Elder Scrolls fans. If I were to get the map, book, and statue though they'd inevitably dust away in some odd place that doesn't match with anything else in my home.

Mehp.

Anyway.

I might be wrong, but he said "XP boost while wearing the Rings of Mara". So I wonder whether you are not able to wear other rings, which gives you bonuses like fire-resistance, etc., while wearing Rings of Mara. Would find that fair. Though, once applied your rings loose any effect once you reached "level 100 everything".

And I wonder whether this lore book will be digitalised and puplished like the Pocket Guides to the Empire on Imperial Library. Once copyright or whatever expired, of course.

I agree with Isilmo. If I do end up getting the Imperial Edition it will be for the sole reason of obtaining that lore-book.

Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."

Well seeing as I support anything TES I will throw my money at it, and perhaps id be willing to share segments of pages from the book in some form of not being copyright.

And @Idriar I too believe that you will have to put the ring in a slot to gain the bonus exp, instead of this magical extra buff, you will need to sacrifice something to balance it out for those who do not have friends... I mean rings of Mara.

Honestly, I might actually try to sell the Molag Bal statue, I don't really want it, but the book/map and the digital items, they look good to me.

Also walking out of the game store holding that box.. Please let it be a midnight release, so I can stroll my way past all those waiting in line behind me.

There are two ring slots. You wear one Ring of Mara whilst you give the other ring to another player to recieve the XP boost when playing together.

But still you would have to trade off one ring slot of your equipment, which would elsehow give you a magical bonus. Like everything it´s a trade off. That´s why I guess it will be fair anyway.

On a side note, any 'slot' (helm, boot, ring) of your equipment can be enchanted and grant you a magical bonus. If there wasn´t the armor rating, they could have also given away the 'Pauldrons of Mara' ;D

or people will get it from a friend of a friend if you now what i mean, but it wont be the same. I hope they offer the book as a separate purchase later on.
