Guild Wars 2 hasn’t really made a secret of the fact that they are going to merchandize the hell out of the game. You’ve got the insane $150 Collector’s Edition, the Rytlock Plushie, various books, and more recently the mouse and headset from Steel Series.
Plus I’ve speculated a bit about authenticators.
That’s all fine and good, but one thing I’ve been looking out for is a simple, fun, Guild Wars 2 t-shirt. Now don’t get me wrong, Guild Wars had some okay t-shirts, but I never felt compelled to buy them. They were a bit plain in my opinion, a bit uninspired and did not reflect the game in a way that I feel nerdy t-shirts should.
I like shirts that portray a bit of clever referencing, wit, or insider knowledge. This is my Star Trek shirt.
So what is my point? I’m hoping that Guild Wars 2 will work with thinkgeek, Jinx, Penny Arcade, or any number of other t-shirt companies to create some nerdy t-shirts that aren’t so loud and glaringly obvious as the ones we’ve seen.
Of course, this is all a little early. All the really good shirts come after the game population hits a critical mass and people have begun experiencing the same trials and forming their own slang and joking about the same ordeals.
That said, my early suggestion would be shirts based on the various profession icons. Though I do admit the engineer icon might take some explaining.
