Prepurchase guarantee beta and 3 days head start, while p.o only 1 day head start.

Regarding other benefits can read here :

whats the different between prepurchase and preorder? heard that theres a difference o.o
Okay firstly I explain in general, preorder means you order and it would be shipped to you either by a local shop or a 3rd party dealer from a site. Prepurchase is directly buying it and waiting for the game to go live (launched globally) and then be able to play it.
Now to explain in terms of Guild Wars 2 they only giving digital prepurchase for now. Meaning that your actually buying it probably they going to give you a product key and make the game availble to download from their site. You wouldn't be receiving a box for proof of purchase everything would be dealed online. Cheers hope this helps !

pre-purchase is the official, where you buy (either the digital copy or the pre-purchase box from stores), you can access the beta + other stuff they mentioned. officially, there's no pre-order.

But retail stores might have pre-order, where they order for you, but you don't get anything until the game is officially out - something along these lines.


From Official FAQ
Which products are available for Pre-Purchase?
Customers will be able to pre-purchase the Guild Wars 2 Digital Edition and the Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe Edition directly from NCsoft. In addition to the digital products, certain retailers will also be offering physical Pre-Purchase of the Guild Wars 2 Standard Edition and the Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition.

as for story, you can read up gw1 story from

wiki.guildwars.com

search for Storyline of Prophecies

and maybe: Guild Wars Eye of the North.

GW2 will be happening in those 2 areas.

There's 2 books that will fill in the events after gw1 and before gw2.

It is possible. In the way, you have to get a 'serial code' from the local shop which you purchase and enter this 'serial code' somewhere in your account so that you can still benefit like access to all beta and 3 days head start. But if the shop is not able to give you this key, you wont get those benefits liao.
