This is not a thread where I am arguing the good/bad of selling Imperial people/crafting access. This is geared towards the penny pinchers or those who are cautious about what they are willing to invest into the game until they play more.
It seems to me that many are getting the Imperial Edition without actually asking themselves if they want to be an imperial. Note that almost all other Imperial Edition benefits are geared towards Imperial players. You get a white Imperial horse and Imperial cosmetics while crafting. Beyond that there is the mudcrab and the rings of Mara.
While the rings of Mara sound cool because of their lore implications, I am willing to bet that there will be not much to them. Something along the lines of choosing a friend and right clicking an item. I doubt there will be a temple quest or anything of that sort, as xp boosts are fairly common with CE's and this is how they have historically went down.
So if you are considering the Imperial Edition, really do consider it. You can upgrade your edition once April 4th roles around, as stated in the official FAQ.
