----------[Section 1 - Introduction]----------(s1in)
Hello again! It's me, Nghtmr9999. This time, I have written a guide on the
Everquest II Lingo you might see in the game.
----------[Section 2 - Lingo]----------(s2lo)
For better searching, terms are in alphabetical order.
AB Antonya Bayle. This is a server name, and one of the most
populated servers in the game.
Add People say this when an additional monster attacks the
group. Can be deadly if you get too many.
AE(AOE) Area of effect. This refers to spells that don't affect
just one target, but many around you.
AF Auto Follow. If you need to go afk and your group
is traveling, don't stop. Right click on a groupmate
and click follow. Just be sure to say "AF on whoever".
AFK Away from keyboard. You type this when real life takes
over. Be sure you say so in groups or you may come back
to a dead pissed off group.
Agi Agility. How much armor you can wear, and your avoid.
Agro The monster's "hate". Attacking and healing builds up hate
with a monster. When your hate is the highest, you will
get attacked by said monster. If you are a fighter, you
should always be at the top of the hate list.
Ant Antonica. One of the major zones outside of Qeynos. This
is where you will go in your teens.
AQ Armor Quest. These are quests that you complete for some
shiny new armor.
BB Blackburrow. An area filled with lots of heroic gnolls.
BRB Be right back. When something happens in real life and
you have to leave the game for a minute or two, just let
your group know by typing this.
Brt Be right there. Basically if you are invited to a group
in a dungeon and you are in Qeynos or Freeport (or where-
ever). Type this to let them know you are coming.
BSV Blood Skull Valley. Raid instance in the south
BT BloodTalon. An epic mob in Antonica. If I recall correctly
its a group x2.
Btw By the way. Don't know if I can say a lot more.
Buff Magical Enhancements to armor, weapons, etc. Priests have
quite a lot. Be sure to use them all in groups.
CH Castleview Hamlet. Starting place for Frogs and High Elfs.
A small cozy town in the great city of Qeynos.
CL Commonlands. One of the major zones outside the city of
Freeport. This is where you will go in your teens.
CoD Cove of Decay. Another heroic instance. This is off the
Con The color of the monster. Grey, green, blue, white
yellow, orange, red.
Conj Conjuror. One of the mage classes in the game. They
summon... things.... and...... stuff.
CP Copper Pieces. Think of these as pennies. They don't buy
a lot. 100 of them makes a silver.
Cya See ya. When you're about to log off, you might say this
to a friend you were talking to or your guild.
Ding Gaining a level. You'll know you've "dinged" when your
exp bar goes to 0%, you hear a sound, and you see pretty
double-helix things go around your character. In groups
you say this when you gain a level, and almost all people
will say "grats" "wtg" "gj" etc.
DoF Desert of Flames. The first big expansion pack released.
It raised the max level to 60, and added a whole desert
DoT Damage over time. Some spells do..."23 damage per second
for 15 seconds" or "500 damage over 30 seconds"
DPS Damage per second. This is how much damage you can do in
the shortest amount of time. If it takes you 15 seconds
to take down a white con monster, you have high DPS. If
it takes you a minute, you have low DPS.
Drop Items dropped by an enemy when they die. They can be coin
or armor or...just....items.
EF East Freeport. A zone in Freeport.
EL Enchanted Lands. Another big zone. Take the bell off the
Thundering Steppes or Nek Forest (whichever takes you to
the right one)
EXP Experience. The invisible number. When your exp is equal
to or greater than exp needed for the next level, you
gain a level.
FD Feign Death. A very handy spell. When cast, you "die".
Until the area is clear of agro or you get sick of being
FG Fallen Gate. A zone with lots of undead. Most heroic.
FP Freeport. The major city that has numerous smaller parts
to it. You go here if you are evil.
Gank On PvP servers, killing somebody who has almost no chance
GG Good Going. Used as a way of saying congrats on level. Or
used sarcastically when someone kills the group.
GM Game Master. The all-powerful people who work at SOE.
All hail the mighty GMs!
GP Gold Pieces. Think of these as $100 bills. 100 silver make
one of these, and 100 of these makes a platinum.
Gtg Got to go. When you need to leave the game, type gtg.
Followed shortly by "cya or bye". Most people will
understand. MOST will.
Good to Go. When you are ready for the next monster.
Gusty Gustfeather. An epic x2 in the Thundering Steppes.
GW Guild Wars. A MMORPG (if you could call it that XD). No
fee, but I heard it's not fun.
HO Heroic Opportunity. Work together as a team, cast the
right spells, and you might cause massive damage, or get
a nice buff.
HP Hitpoints. When they reach 0, you die.
HoT Heal over time. Kinda self-explanatory.
Idc I dont care. Again, it explains itself.
Idk I dont know. Explains itself....
Imo In my opinion. When you have an opinion, say <text> IMO
Inc Incoming. Used to let the group know a monster is coming.

groups can't just come in and kill everything.
Int Intelligence. How much mana mages have.
J/k Just Kidding. When you say something, but you were
kidding, type this.
KK Okay. Don't think I have to say more.
L8r Later. When you must leave the game for a few hours, be
a nice guy. Tell your friends and your guild. They'll say
"bye" or "cya" in return.
Lag Slow Connection. When the game isn't completely smooth
you have lag my good sir. Check your connection. Then
blame it on the server hamster.
LD Linkdead. When someone crashes from the game. Be nice and
wait a few minutes for them. Then find a replacement.
LF Looking for. Mainly used when a group needs a certain
LFG Looking for group. If you need to do an instance, or you
just want exp, type /lfg in the chat box, and type your
message in the chat box.
LFM Looking for more. When you just have 2 or 3 and you need
more people, just put this in the chat box along with what
you are doing.
LFW Looking for work. If you want a crafting job, type /lfw
to flag yourself, and people will contact you... soon....

(see below) doesn't do it.

recieved your message by accident.
Main Tank. This is the person in the group that decides
what will be pulled, takes all the damage, and keeps the
enemies off the group.

the "A small gnoll" or "A two-headed orc" type of thing.

summon dead stuff.

imagine, this annoys people quite a bit.
