In Guild Wars 2, one of my favorite skills to use is the ability to unleash a cranky mechanical golem upon my foes.

Today's item comes to us from the wild and strange land of Twitter, where Jezriyah suggested this might be the prettiest item in the game. Maybe -- but only if you don't count characters, as my Night Elf Hunter is pretty hot. Also, if you're not following WoW Insider on Twitter yet, now's the cha...
