    Question What are those Acronyms!

    Hey there,

    I'm a returning player, (leveled to 65 at Nightmare Tides launched after playing on and off since 2012) and in the in-game chats people have been looking for things like NTE groups and such.

    I've been able to decipher that NTE probably means Nightmare Tide Expert dungeons, but there are a ton of other acronyms that I just don't know and I could really use some help.

    The most common ones -

    SoL = Sea of Ladon raid rift
    NTE = Nightmare Tide Experts
    NMR = Nightmare Rifts
    1 res 1 roll = of the two drops at the end, one is reserved for the player whose lure it is, one is rolled upon by everyone else
    MoM = Mind of Madness dungeon (or raid, I can never remember which it is)
    MoM IA = Mind of Madness Instant Adventures
    HK IA = Hammerknell Intrepid Instant Adventures
    CQ = Conquest
    WF = Warfront
    PoW = Plane of Water (lvl 60-65 content)
    PTW = Planetouched Wilds (lvl 65 content, and yes, depending on who you ask, "pay to win")

    Trying to think if there are other blatantly obvious ones I'm missing.

    RoF: Rhen of Fate (T1 10 man raid, also duo chronicle)
    MS: Mount Sharax (T1 20 man raid)
    TF: Tyrant's Forge (T1 20 man raid)
    iGP: intrepid: Gilded Prophecy (T2 10 man raid)
    HK: Hammerknell Fortress (T2 20 man raid, also duo chronicle)
    HKIA: Hammerknell Fortress instant adventure
    MoM: Mind of Madness (T3 20 man raid)
    MoM IA: Mind of Madness Instant Adventure
    NMR: Nightmare Rift (20 man instanced or open world rift, tiers 1-6)
    PoW: Plane of Water (Nightmare Tide zones)
    PtW: Planetouched Wilds (new zone)
    CQ: Conquest (large scale instanced pvp)
    wf: Warfront (smaller scale instanced pvp)
    NF: Nightfall (Conquest faction)
    Dom: Dominator (mage soul) or Dominion (Conquest Faction)
    Oath: Oathsworn (Conquest Faction)
    DW: Deepwood (shard)
    GB: Greybriar (shard)
    WB: Wolfsbane (shard)
    FB: Faeblight (shard)
    SS: Seastone (shard)
    CC: Crowd Control (pvp/pve mechanic)

    Also the generics:

    LFG: Looking for Group
    LFM: Looking for Man/Members/etc
    WTB: Want to Buy
    WTS: Want to Sell
    WTT: Want to Trade
    pst: please send tell
    CP: Crit Power
    AP: Attack Power
    SP: Spell Power
    SC: Spell Critical Hit
    PC: Physical Crit
    PA: Planar Attunement
    ST: Single Target
    AoE: Area of Effect
    dps: damage role
    chon: archon hybrid (pyrochon, harbchon, stormchon, etc)
    lethal: crit debuff (provided by a rogue with a sin-based spec, a warrior in champion, or a primalist)
    1h: One handed
    oh: Off hand
    mh: Main hand
    2h: two handed
    kalert: Karuul Alerts (buff/debuff addon)
    kbm: King Boss Mods (raid encounter addon)


    That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure I'll come up with more. If you need any specifics, feel free to post them.

    Nothing, but the two phrases could have the same acronym...

    Pay To Win
    Planetouched Wilds

    ...so the context in which they're used would be important.

    Although technically not an acronym, it might be the most important term of all - especially in this day and age.

    carry - A player relying on his group to complete an activity with no intent of contributing (and/or improving).
