AE:

Area Effect. Used to refer to area-effect spells or abilities. E.g. fireball, smoke grenade (gouge for rogues in Warspear)

 

AFK:

Away from keyboard

 

AGRO:

As a verb, it refers to a hostile mob that has noticed a player and is actively trying to attack that player. As a noun, it refers to the amount of “hostility” the player has generated on the mob. In typical combat strategy, the fighter tries to take as much aggro as possible away from weaker players such as healers and mages.

 

ALT:

Short for “alternate”. It refers to the alternate character a player has from their main character. This is not a stable category as sometimes alts can out level mains and sometimes mains become moth-balled.

 

AOE:

Same as AE. Area of Effect.

 

Attribute:

E.g. Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence, etc.

 

Bind

In certain MMOs, characters are teleported back to a safe spot when they die. This spot is predetermined by the user. The act of determining the safe spot requires an explicit action by the user. That action is known as a bind. The spot is typically referred to as a bind spot.

 

BoE

Short for “bind on equip” –  This term refers to items that become soulbound to the player after they have been equipped. In other words, the item can be traded as long as no one equips it.

 

BoP

Short for “bind on pickup” – This term refers to items that become soulbound to the player after it has been picked up from a monster. In other words, the item cannot be traded once a player picks it up. BoP items commonly cause looting conflicts and disputes during game-play.

 

BRB

"be right back”

 

Bot

Generally illegal and discouraged form of gameplay, where actions of a character can be automated to perform actions repeatedly in order to gain experience and level without actual user intervention. This practice is continually monitored by GMs and will cause suspension of service if one is suspected of botting.

 

BRT

"be right there”

 

BTW

"by the way”

 

Buff

Temporary boost to character attribute or combat ability

 

Camp(ing)

The act of waiting in an area to hunt a specific mob or player.

Professional archetypes. These would be warrior, healer, rogue and mage. The most typical class types are: close-range damage, ranged damage, healing, crowd control, support.

 

Cleric

Typical healing class in fantasy games.

 

Corpse

In certain MMOs, a corpse appears where the player died. Sometimes all the player’s items and money are left on the corpse and the player is teleported back to their bind spot. Corpses typically will decay after a certain time proportional the character’s level.

 

Corpse Run

The act of retrieving your corpse after you have died. This is typically a dangerous thing because people tend to die in dangerous places rather than safe places.

 

Crafting

A general category of skills that allows players to manufacture objects from raw resources

 

Crit

"To crit” refers to landing a critical hit either with melee or spells. Effective damage is usually increased from a base of 150% to upwards of 250% with extra talents/skills/buffs.

Farm(ing)

The act of accumulating currency or items by constantly killing a mob or repeatedly performing a series of actions.

Gank

(important to understand from all players of warspear!)

Verb. To be ganked is a term referring to one player being overwhelmed and killed by a large group. Can be either by a group of other players doing player-kill or a group of NPC monsters. Used in a sentence, “I got ganked yesterday in Fel.” Typically has the connotation that the other people had an unfair advantage (in number or level) Gank is with a group vs 1.

GTG

“good to go” and “got to go” – can be confusing when context is unclear
