    WAI - I've seen the abbreviation used a lot more than the spelled out "Working As Intended" (which you've already added)

    Waggro - Wife has aggro on your game playing and you have to log out to go to Bed Bath and Beyond for example. Also see Waggro

    This needs correcting - should say "Also see Haggro".

    Gimp has a lesser used/known version also. Not certain if you want to add it or not.

    Get Into Multiclassing Project : there appear to be gimp groups on various servers.

    Some of these Acronyms may be misleading. For instance DA is more commonly used for Devil Assault quest than for dwarven axes or dungeon alerts... if there is an alert people just type alert in my case. WC is more used for > Wrong Chat than for warchanter.

    OP - Original Poster can also be interpreted as Opening Post.
    Firewall - can use shortcut FW.
    SP - Spell penetration, is more commonly interpreted for Spell Points.

    And some of these are just... exaggerated, way too many IMOs - In my opinions such as: GIMPO - God In My Personal Opinion, typically used to describe a good character build (?!), JMO - Just My Opinion (?!)... one simple IMO is enough -.-

    But to add something that's widely used:
    BtC - Bound to Character
    BtA - Bound to Account
    GW - Got window. Used commonly when window farming the quest.
    LDS - Large Devil Scale
    FRDS - Flawless Red Dragon Scales

    ill add devils assault, never heard wrong chat though. more commonly mt, or mistell. im sure a whole slew of variations exist, and depending on experiance and toon level would have an impact on which term is used on which occasion. overall i think it helps more than it hurts.

    Firewall - can use shortcut FW.

    You're missing LR, GR and TR
    LR - Lesser Reincarnation
    GR - Greater Reincarnation (this one I'm guessing since I haven't seen it used yet)
    TR - True Reincarnation

    Quote Originally Posted by Shal View Post

    Actually, True Resurrection is a level 9 Cleric spell (http://ddowiki.com/page/True_Resurrection): "Resurrects the target, restoring full Hit Points, and preserves current spell points." What you mean here is True reincarnation

    Default What exactly does PROC mean

    Hi,

    I have recently heard many people talking about the percentage that their weapons PROC. What does this stand for or mean.

    Memloch
    A proc is when an item or weapon has an effect that does not "toggle", or activate, on every hit delivered (in case of weapons) or received (in case of items)

    These are more powerful effects than normal, and thus this power is balanced by the uncertainty of the activations.

    Proc Rate is used to say (about) how often a certain effect will occurr. For instance, the Cannith Combat Infusion has a proc rate of 1.5% (tested, with later developer confirmation)

    That last parenthetical note, which is usually hyperlinked on the forums for source (I would if I could find it, don't have the time to find it now), is an indication of a factual piece of information that shows where the math is done to prove the number given. People can refer to that and provide their imput, but the testing is done.




    Insofar as the OP:


    E(Quest name or abbreviation) = Epic, not Elite (though often they are used for both, simply due to level diparities) unless Epic does not apply.

    I remember twice running ELoD and having level 16's ask to join. I tell them it's Epic, not Elite, they argue with me about it since I have ELoD in the LFM with no quest selected, and 20-20 range. Some people don't get it...


    The main reason for concern would be in MA and LoB. ELoB should be 20-20 regardless of Elite or Epic, and this is where the general concensus of E(Quest name/abbreviation) comes in as being Epic. In an unclear situation, Epic prevails over Elite.

    So, if I follow this thought, dding an C or an N or an H as a prefix determins the difficulties of quests ?

    It would be for example cIrestone, or nIrestone or hIrestone, for example [Irestone inlet].

    That apart from the fact hat no-one does it with these difficulties nowadays, but that's a different discussion ...

    We would need a replacement for the e = elite difficulty, then.

    We could use for example EIrestone or eIrestone, it should be defined, then.

    We could also use things like BBIrestone, for those who want to have (and kep) a Bravery Bonus in it.

    BSIrestone would then be similar : "Bravery Streak Irestone Inlet".

    Ironically, all of these worde have subtle sub-meanings of their own ...
