Today is Lyriana's first birthday. I happen to know this because EQ2 actually records characters' date of birth, along with other stats, and because I happen to remember the circumstances under which I decided to roll her up (dealing with WoW's sorry excuse for a Valentine's event last year). What exactly have I accomplished in that year?
Apparently there are stats for that too. I gained 80 levels of Dirge, 80 levels of Adventurer, and 141 AA's. I killed over 9000 foes, completed more than 1100 quests, learned 3400 recipes (crafting 3300 items in the process) and have dealt 5,000+ damage in a single hit.
It appears that players can expect this level of snapshot detail of our careers henceforth - the idea of social networking type pages for each of our characters is basically a standard feature at this point. I don't know if that's good or bad. At least it manages to be interesting.
