A couple of days ago was the three-month mark since I started playing Guild Wars 2 full time.

Before we get into the stats, take a look at that image up top. Yeah, I kinda want to see the Enterprise-LOL in that scale in-game, just to satisfy my morbid curiosity. I would despise it, but… hell I already do! So why not?
