Could someone explain some of the Warrior terms?

Honestly, Ive been too afraid to ask this earlier out of fear of being called a noob or whatever, but now Im getting real tired of seeing all these terms (e.g. edl, dl, dps, etc.) and not knowing exactly what they mean. I ask for some mercy in my lack of knowledge concerning this. :?
If someone could give me a list of some of the Warrior terms used and briefly explain what they mean, Id really appreciate it.

Re: Could someone explain some of the Warrior terms?

^ Alongside MT, there's also OT (off-tanks) who are warrior who tank during a boss fight, but usually the other mobs rather than the boss itself.

Another thing you'll hear a lot is 'adds', either in the context of 'adds on druids' or 'clear adds'. These are essentially the other mobs in the area that are drawn to the fight by the boss, and as a tank you should be aware of any adds that are attacking druids so you can take aggro off, or let the DPS know.

edl = exalted dragonlord. It's a set of armour/weapons unlocked after dl

dl = dragonlord. Set of armour/weapons unlocked after frozen

dps = damage per second

mh/oh = main hand weapon (spear/sword/axe/etc)/off hand weapon (shield/etc)

When tanking, the druids with dl/edl oh have skills called boons. So if a druid says boon or 'b', then that means they've applied it to the tank.

A mage at heart... Fire mage that is.

Re: Could someone explain some of the Warrior terms?

...Thought we were referring to mainly warrior terms, lol. Great list froze! One thing I might add is kite or kiting, which is referred to as walking in froze's list.

Kiting- walking a boss around whilst holding aggro (attention) of the boss. Usually done with bolas. Used when no druid is present or at raged, close range, melee bosses with ample room to actually walk the boss around.
Yeeticus- Work in progress ranger

Wardon- 220 Warrior
Cryptic- 220 Rogue

Re: Could someone explain some of the Warrior terms?

Looks pretty exhaustive, but here are a few more that came to mind:

Some people use some form of: MP/EP/E; energy, just like HP lol
most other stat abbreviations are relatively apparent, (att/str/dex)

There are also a myriad of shorthand words/abbreviations that are used during raids etc (there are variations and many many additional, but here's a few: )
R/rdy: ready, indicates/inquires the state of preparedness o the group/clan
rb/ra/ru: Run back/away, generally used to inform players of an upcoming AoE skill
Miss: a vital skill missed (may be accompanied with the name of the skill that was avoided), most often used for mobility limiting skills (bolas, bash, freeze, roots, skewer), or lures.

OOC: Out-Of Clan, OOG: Out-Of Group Ex: "who got lock?" "oog"

Edit: AoE: Area of Effect, skill that affects more than a single targeted player, can be radial (a circle of X distance around boss), and cone-shaped (the quadrant in front of the boss). Both radial and cone sizes can vary per boss.
DOT: Damage Over Time, skills that deal damage after initial hit for a certain number of ticks

Ticks: a CH quantum of time: 5 second increments. Many things rely on tick counters; for example there are many DOT skills that deal damage for a few ticks following the initial cast. Additionally, most regen is based of of ticks.
[Note: while regen skills (regenerate, bunny's skill) count ticks from cast time (regenerates every 5 seconds after casting until expires), passive regen and sigils count ticks off of the background server counter (hard to explain concisely, but basically sometimes when you kill a mob it takes less than a full tick to start regening after you are out of combat stance depending upon when the next server tick was).]
