    Default Somethings can be written out...

    Okay, okay, I'll admit, I'm a little new to all this online game world but I'm not stupidly dense either. Has someone made a dictionary for all the damn abbreviations everyone uses? It's ridiculous. Maybe it's the student in me, or life in the real world. BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT PEOPLE ARE TYPING HALF THE TIME.

    When I first started playing MMOs I had the same problem. I had no idea WTF anyone was saying.

    A lot of in-game abbreviations will be specific to the game itself, probably short for the different instances/zones.

    One thing I noticed wasn't on that list which is a part of every MMO is LoS: line of sight.

    Dragon Kill Points. It's an old way players came up with of distributing loot in raids based on attendance, number of boss kills, time spent in the raid, etc.

    Dragon killing (or killer) points

    Imaginary points used in a guild to bid on items that drop (Think of an auction). How you gain and lose DKP is up to the guild who created them as they are not part of the actual game.
