The Character Window is a useful tool for keeping track of your goals and progress. At a glance, you can glean a large amount of useful information, such as the levels of your professions, or your resistance to certain types of crowd control effects. We will break the Character Window into small sections, and review each aspect, to help you unravel some of the mystery.
When you first open your character window, you will see something similar to this:
