    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 ...
    Exactly.

    CWS: Casual Weapons Shipment
    NMA: Normal Master Artificer
    HLoB: Hard Lord of Blades
    LeetDD: Elite Dreaming Dark (or eDD or BB: DD)
    EDA: Epic Devil Assault

    Simple examples (using quest abbreviations as well, but just examples) for the purposes. E is Epic, e is Elite, as generally understood. Some people will use both E and e for Epic, though, so using a different abbreviation for Elite is key. Generally you can tell, though.

    Trash or Trash MOBs - the less threatening enemies in a quest, i.e. not the orange or red bosses.

    Can somebody explain what 'squelched' means? I've read a topic about it just yet, but is it the same as getting kicked? Or something else?

    And would it be usefull to add it to the list of acronyms and slang?

    It's not a DDO- (or even MMO-) specific term.

    According to Google.. "Forcefully silence or suppress: "property developers tried to squelch public protest"."

    It's not really an acronym or even slang. It's just when you don't want to see a particular player in your chat any more:
    /squelch add *player name* - The squelch add command allows you to add a player to your squelch list. This prevent you from hearing that player in voice chat or seeing what they type in the chat box. Put a space before the player's name when using this command.
    /squelch list - The squelch list command lists all players on your squelch list.
    /squelch remove *player name* - The squelch remove command allows you to remove a player from your squelch list. Type the command, a space, then the player's name.



    /help - will give you a full (very long) list of commands in your chat window.

    Don't know if this is even being updated any longer, but a very common acronym since U14 is PRR - Physical Resistance Rating. Even the wiki and in-game descriptions tend to reduce it to PRR much of the time.

    some of these i've never even heard and i've been playing a long time lol. here's some you may say in LfM postings.
    The update (U) followed by the # in which a quest or quest chain was released
    to be honest most of these I don't even remember anymore could make a list of stuff like U1 = inspired quarter chain (mindsunder) or U14 = Menace of the underdark (expansion) but really I wish people would stop using these in LFM postings I've been around since back when we started in IQ and still remember running through the butchers path to get to the harbor going invis and just running to the end to farm it lol before they added you had to kill the mobs(mobile (NPC)non player character enemy) and I can't remember which updates are which any more so don't really expect new players to know which update number = which quest chain.

    here are a few that are quest releated based on Plane of night raid
    base 1 = Ice (to the left) base 2 = Air (furthest away) base 3 = Fire (to the right) at least on Sarlona I do remember it being the opposite of that not sure why it changed but that is the standard these days. It would probably be easier just saying Fire, Air, Ice because if you don't know which base each are you certainly aren't going to know which base 1 2 or 3 is... at any rate it's almost always explained we it's run anyway at least in pugs. (public user groups, or pick up groups)

    Might I recommend adding in "EE" and "EH" for epic elite and epic hard?

    A lot of times people refer to these things when suggesting builds to new players (myself included), and I had no idea what they were.

    I don't know what the thread necromancy rules are, but I've seen "EE" and "ED" often enough to come here and look for their meanings. And post about it, since neither are in the list and I agree with Krimleingod that they should be.

    From a post in the critzilla thread:

    Thanks to Krimleingod's post I now know what "EE" means. And "EH", even. But I have no idea what "ED" means, other than erectile dysfunction. And I'm hoping that is not the correct meaning for that acronym within DDO.

    Normally a thread necro this old would get locked, but this is useful information. Maybe it should be stickied.
