Talk:World of Warcraft terminology/A-M
I was going to add links for many articles (one of the first being Arathi Basin for example) but decided to check if that's a good idea or not first. It could help newbies with finding more information (since they're the ones likely to be looking at this list in the first place), but as a downside it might look less organized because it's always arguable what should get a link and what shouldn't. --Pure.Wasted 05:50, 5 October 2006 (EDT)
Suggested additions (from Teh ownage)
Here are some additions taken from Teh ownage. I'd like some community feedback on the validity of these terms since I haven't heard some of them myself. Others are generally gaming terms and might be okay for this page if we're interested in representing a broader topic.
- To "Buff up" someone. "gief them buffs"
- "Epics" or "Purple bling" Things that cost alot of money and are very powerful. Gief Epix.
- "For the win" or "it is good" or "its good to have it" example "<epic name> ftw" or "<spell name> ftw"
- "Give" or alternatively "i want that" or "wow thats cool i would like it"
- "Hacks" usually when a person links an over powered epic to another person they will respond with "gief" or "haxx" usually if something is extremely over powered a person will call it "haxx" because the person must have Hacked or "haxx0red" in order to obtain it.
- "Elite" or "extremely professional at gaming" there are ALOT of ways to write this including: Leet, l33t, 1337, l337, I_337 and many many more ways. if you every get a 1337 Crit.
- "loot" or alternatively "epic l00t" or even "gief teh imba haxx purple bling that drops off teh bosses"
- Roughly the same as "oh well who cares" or a "grunt of approval" basically its onomatoupaeic, meaning that it sounds the same as it is spelled - its basically a grunting noise you make when you approve of something.

- FTW is very common and should be added. Meh is relatively common, but not really WoW terminology. The rest I would prefer not to add based on the principle of reducing the proliferation of retard L337-speak. -- (talk · contr) 5:42 PM PDT 1 Nov 2007
Another Definition for Burn
Another definition for burn can be when a player uses the disenchanting spell on a particular item, especially whilst raiding with a guild or other party. When no one wants a particular item that drops, and is most often a BoP item, the enchanter will take it and then "burn" it by using their disenchanting ability and then players can roll for the disenchanted item.
