The item lists the following bonus items:
1)Ancient Tartagon Mount: Available at level 20, this turtle mount increases player speed by 60%.
2)Collector's Satchel: Increases the size of your primary backpack to 24 slots.
3)Bogling Wastrel: This unique pet sets you apart from the other Ascended.
These come with the collector's edition
With the Ashes of History Edition (this item) instead you get:
1)Spindrel mount: available immediately matches the speed of your swiftest mount (just a different toon)
2)Personal banker: Access your vault anywhere in Telara with your trusty bogling banker, Moneybags
3)Faction tabard: Show off your faction pride with these new tabards.
Not sure which I would have prefered, but I got this item so I got the second set. Just wanted to clarify it for others.

This is good for the additional collectors items you get in game and that's about it. The game itself is pretty much your standard MMO, though executed much better than most. It rivals WoW, SW:TOR and TSW in my opinion, all three stellar games. Though this is by far the best of the f2p models because you can honestly get everything you want simply by playing the game.

The game itself is not bad, but dealing with stubborn antique camera settings and interface get to be a pain. The main problem, I thought were the titular RIFTS. Opening randomly and spewing out random monsters, if unchecked (as most hardcore players seem to ultimately ignore them...) they soon overwhelm a quadrant and make life quite the bitch for the average player. I want to explore, do quests, farm, and so on, but had to spend most of my time RIFT babysitting so I didn't get totally ganked. Not a bad title, but not worth investing serious time on, either...
