    Post The great LOTRO list of abbreviations

    Hi guys, I listed up all the abbreviations commonly used on my (Brandywine) server I could come up with. I didn't include common colloquial abbreviations that have nothing to do with lotro itself (like IIRC, TY, WTH, BRB...) or abbreviations of other games (DOTA, SWTOR, WoW...) If you come up with more abbreviations, post them in comments below.

    I've seen SH being used for Stoneheight. I've also seen STH for Stoneheight as well.

    Also, Pot for Potion. That one is really important to know for new people starting to get into instances.

    ToO for Tower of Orthanc.
    Chromite/Grumbletocks/Grumbletunes/Schrade on Landroval, Chromite on Arkenstone, Appendage on Brandywine

    Good idea and quite a big list already. Here are a few additions and a couple of comments on a few of the already included abbreviations.

    Additions:
    IXP: Legendary Item XP. Received from defeating mobs and as a quest reward.
    CXP: Crafting XP. Received from obtaining crafting materials from the landscape, as well as using crafting recipes.
    MoM: Mines of Moria - expansion pack. Originally included Rune-keeper and Warden classes.
    EP: Expansion Pack. A region of the game, including quests, instances, and possibly other content, permanently available to the account.
    QP: Quest Pack: Provides quests for a region of the game, but excludes instances and possibly other content.
    BEO: Beorning
    MNS: Minstrel
    WRD: Warden
    CPT: Captain
    GRD: Guardian
    BRG: Burglar
    FM: Fellowship Manuever
    Prem: Premium Account. Former VIP who has not renewed their subscription.
    VIP: VIP Account. Players paying a subscription to play.
    Life/Lifer/Lifetime: Players who paid a large, one-time fee, for unlimited VIP status of basic game features (excluding expansions).


    Issues:
    BoA: Isn't this also the acronym for 'Bind on Account' items?
    C: Challenge, generally used with T1, T2 or T3 (not sure of exact usage on this one)
    GotV: Gift of the Valar - alternate abbreviation
    Mob: 1) A single enemy NPC, whether uniquely named or generic; 2) Also used to mean a group of enemies who tend to get aggro at the same time.
    OP: Original Poster. While used in this context mostly in the forums, occasionally it is used to refer to the person who starts a long, complex discussion within game chat and generally means the person using this abbreviation is going back to the OP's original intent/comment.
    Sammy: Shouldn't this (and possibly other instances) be broken down into a listing with multiple parts/wings shown? Because sometimes they're speaking about "Sammy, blah wing" to get the keys, and other times "Sammy" is Sambrog only. Cannot recall the instance name, but the Kergrim vs Gredbyg instance is the same way where you do either side and then use the key to go after the boss (spiders).

    No. Sammy is Sambrog. Thadur and Maze are the other two instances to open up access to Sambrog. When people advertize for those it's Thadur or Maze.

    As for Skumfil, generally people will say "Skum, xxx side only" or something like that where xxx is the side they want to do.

    +Name can be any number of high level account type. Suffice to say they are just Turbine employees.
    Tic and Rpt I've not seen people use.

    This is a good compilation and very helpful for new players, thanks for sharing.

    I think most is covered, probably add TP for Turbine Points?

    Keep up the good work.

    Tic is an old term for a unit of server time in which the world would update. Do not know for sure what the LOTRO tic is, but in Everquest a tic is/was 6 seconds. Yes, tic, is also used as short hand for ticket.

    Just wanted to add that in the context of the Ettenmoors, CJ can also mean 'corpse jumping'. As in another player jumping over your dead body.
    And then, forever remains that change from G to E minor.

    Other than that, excellent list! Thanks for working hard on making it!

    I believe 'Bind (Bound) to Account' is abbreviated with BtA, though there aren't too many items with that function yet.

    Great list!

    I have seen BoA used for Bind on Acquire, especially when deciding who will get instance loot.

    Some others:

    CG: Central Gondor
    PoTD: Paths of the Dead
    TC: Tarlang's Crown
    WG: West Gondor
    Neddor, Untrustworthy Guardian of Arkenstone
    Massan, Captain Nutter of Laurelin

    TC is also used for the Thrors Coomb Dailies in Enedwaith aka TC Dailies

    RP is also short for RolePlay.

    Another one that is commonly used is for recent updates, people refer to them as U and then 'insert number of update here. For example U15 is short for Update 15.


    Great list btw

    AoE: Area of Effect

    About the BoA/BtA thing.. I've never seen a "Bind on Account" item. They're always "Bind To Account". It's a fairly common misconception though.

    \If I have not seen those used I would not have posted them and wasted the OPs time.

    Thanks to the OP for making such an extensive list... Hopefully Turbine can Sticky your OP without the replies for new players in the new player subforum

    The two terms are :

    BoA - Bind on Acquire -- in use since 2006

    and

    BtA - Bind to Account -- hardly ever abbreviated. A new term only recently added to the game.

    Items purchased from the store are usually Bind to Account, while in-game gear are typically either Bind on Acquire (for quest rewards) or Bind on Equip (BoE) for random drops.

    CG can also be Caras Galadhon, but context should help distinguish between the Lorien location and the Gondorian location.

    I've seen people use LL or LLG to refer to the Limlight Gorge area of the Great River.

    Also Bug: Bugud, the "raid" warband near Snowbourn.

    ...and just thought of cod/CoD: Cash on Delivery (sending items in the mail with the intention of the receiver paying for the item when they open the mail).

    I'm continuously updating the list with new ideas I was also thinking that this list may be useful to GM's who get tickets or read into chat conversations with lots of confusing abbreviations. Bookmark this list, GM's!
