A couple of new rmt items also announced - pet unlocks and storage upgrades. I see rmt items in Guild Wars in a fairly positive light. The no subscription business model gives a huge amount of gaming for a small investment but if NCsoft have no way of getting additional revenues they are bound to lose interest in maintaining the game. Having a steady stream of income from people buying new characters slots and storage upgrades will hopefully entice them to keep the servers up and running smoothly. My only gripe about NCsofts implementation of micropayments is that they aren't really micro at all. Everything seems to cost around €10. I know that isn't a lot in the bigger scheme of things but given that the games are now heavily discounted and can be picked up for around €15 it seems excessive to lash out another €10 on just one extra storage slot.
Oh and did I mention that we will get a chance to get a free extra storage pane:
