So I did not see anything on the Acronym's commonly seen in this game.. So I wanted to make a list of all the ones I know, to help people who don't understand >~< , I'm sorry if there is one and I missed it ! D:
An acronym is another word for abbreviation, which is mainly used to shorten a phrase that would seem to long.( I hope I am posting this in the right place and I don't seem like to much of an idiot..)


Lets get started

Basic internet Acronyms:
Lol = Laugh out loud (Or when it is put as LoL it means League of Legends)

Rofl =Roll on floor laughing

Lmao = Laughing my ___ off  (Some people may not consider the "A word" as bad, but lets keep this clean)

Lmfao= Laughing my _______ ___ off ( its obvious what this means.)

Wtf = What the ____ (OR as Xuse says "Wow that's fantastic")

Wth = What the heck (Or the more rude word..)

Omg= Oh my God. ( some people who may be overly religious, may take offense to someone who says this a lot, I've saw it more then once in a game)

BTW= By the way
ty Thank you

np No problem.

afk= Away from keyboard

wb= welcome back

Brb= Be right back

brt- be right there

omw- on my way

Asap- As soon as possible.

Idc = I don't care

Idk= I don't know

idgaf (I don't give a a ____

Idek - I don't even know

Ikr- I know right

NC- nice?  Okay so I have never heard this used as nice, but apparently some people do , but in general it means No comment, or network computer if your talking about computers.

Acc= account

pass= password

<3 = (heart)


Gaming acronyms:
FPS: First person shooter.

TPS : third person shooter

RPG: Role playing game

mmo(g): Massively Multiplayer Online( gaming)  ( The gaming and g is separated mainly because you will see MMO more then MMOG, the gaming would kinda be implied.)

mmorpg: Massively Multiplayer online role playing game.

mmofps Massively multiplayer online first person shooter.

mmotps. Massively multiplayer online third person shooter.

RTS: Real time strategy.

TBG- Turn based Game

ARTS = Action Real Time Strategy

TBG = Turn Based Game

MMORG = Massive Multiplayer Online Racing Game

TCG = Trading Card Game

AMMORPG = Action Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game

MOBA - Multiplayer online battle arena ( LoL , dotA etc.)

You get the jist, I don't have to name all the types of games, if its online and you play with other people , it can be considered a mmo[insert game type here

WTS= Want to sell

WTB= Want to buy

PT=Party

WTT=Want to trade

WTG = want to give.

LFP= Looking for party.

LFM = looking for member

LFG= looking for group ( sometimes can mean guild.)

PvP = Player vs. player

PvE = Player vs. environment.

AoE= Area of effect.

DoT= Damage over time.

DPS =Damage per second

HoT Heal over time.

Str- strength.
AGI=Agility (In some games called DEX(Dexterity))
Wis-Wisdom(In some games, INT)
SPR- Spirit.
LCK= Luck

HP= Health points
MP= Mana points

DEF- Defense

EVA= Evasion

Ele= Element

INV- inventory.

IG-in game

IGN- in game name

SP- spirit points , see mana points for what this is.

DC=disconnect

CC-change channel /or capsule coin.

ch - channel

OHKO = One Hit Knock Out





In-game titles:
GM : Game master (Or in some company's ,manager )
CM: Community manager
Mod= moderator
NPC = Non playable character.

One IMPORTANT in-game acronym:
CoD = Collect on Delivery, The amount of times I have seen "What does CoD mean" will make a person go mad. Though , in some conversations it may mean Call of duty , but in most cases in-game like when someones selling an item, it would mean cash on collect.

Other important spirit tales acronyms.
Instances.
44 - MSL: Misty sage lodge
41 - ST:  Slyph tower
38 - AG: Assembly ground
34 - HoK: Hall of knowledge
32 - HoD: Heart of desert
29 - SG : Sandstream garden
24 - SW: Smoldering woods (smoke forest)
19 - HoF:Heart of forest


(I know I missed some, will update later)

(Other acronyms that might be seen in ST and is important)
CQ= Clan quest
SFW = Sun Fire Wolf
WOL =Waters of lethe

WB= World boss

Other acronyms:

ToS : Terms of service or as I like to call it, that thing you didn't read when you signed up.

FaQ:Frequently Asked Question(s). This is really helpful in most situations, though , some just skip over it and go through extra trouble to find an answer that was already answered.

COPPA: Children's online privacy protection act: This is mainly a reason why a person under 13 cant sign up to many websites, states that no website can take personal information from a child under the age of 13 ( had to learn this in my Computing class) though , kids under 13 can be on, if a website doesn't take personal info from them.

-----------------------------------

Basic knowledge.

What is a "Support ticket"
This is a system used by game publishers, and devs, and also many websites, so you can get in touch with a part of the staff so they can hear about any bugs, or other complications/complaints..

Normal complications people have with tickets:
" My ticket has not been answered in X amount of days": Well this is because that part of the staff is very busy, and have many other tickets to attend to, really patience is key, its understandable to be upset or disappointed  but that's no reason to believe they are bad at what they do, they simply cannot do everything in one day , and may need to hold some people for a while.

Account security:
It is good to change your pass, on a regular basis, and have it be non-dictionary based. (Aka no , Bunnyman123)

Example of a somewhat secure pass :ApZ.KloP23,.  ( Caps, lowe case, numbers , and special characters. though some sites dont allow caps or special characters )
But how can i remember that ? You ask. Well , there are trusty password managers that you can have that will put your pass in a encrypted database, that only you would have the master password to access them.

You could also keep a book in rl.

I would not recommend you put it in a notepad document or something unless you make it so you need a pass to open it.

Why I put this here is because half the time  in mmos , someone complains about getting 'hacked' , and expects to get all there stuff from the Staff , well , most the time its just someone being able to guess your pass or your security question, or being able to just compromise you, not the company's database if it was the company's fault you got hacked you might have a good chance of getting your stuff, but if its you and clearly your fault then very very very small chance.
--------------------------------

That is all I have for now.

Did I miss a acronym ?
Please tell me : >

Have any more basic knowledge to add? : >

tell me.

you missed MOBA
Multiplayer Online Battle Arena
There's no such thing as MOBA. There's DotA(2), and then there's the rest.
