Fps may also refer to "Frames per second" i.e. "i lowered my fps to minimize battery consumption" which applies to the battery saver function in al.

Also, what does PUG mean?

STR ---------- Strength (Health)
DEX ---------- Dexterity (Dodge, Critical)
INT ---------- Intelligence (Bonus Damage, Mana, Damage)


str/dex/int applies differently for each class. By the looks of it, you used a mage to come up with this.
Mostly 2 out of 3 increase hp, but not equally same
bonus dmg only applies to primary stat.

I see. Thanks for the clarification and yes, I'm a mage :)
But I do not get what you mean by "mostly 2 out of 3 increase hp, but not equally same". pls further elaborate?

If you're a rogue:
1 DEX = 3 HP
1 INT = 5 HP
1 STR = 10 HP

If you're mage:
1 INT = 3 HP
1 DEX = 5 HP
1 STR = 10 HP

If you're warrior:
1 STR = 10 HP
1 INT = 3 HP
1 DEX = 3 HP

If you're a rogue:
1 DEX = 3 HP
1 INT = 5 HP
1 STR = 10 HP

Specifically for rogue :
1 dex = 3hp /0.4 dmg / 0.02 critical/ 0.04dps

1 int = 10 mana /5 hp

1 str = 10 hp

buff and nerf isn't an abbreviation ...

and i personally use "lep" instead of "lepre", idk about other ppl tho

change: "INT ---------- Intelligence (Bonus Damage, Mana, Damage)" to "INT ---------- Intelligence (Mana)"
each class have different stat that adds damage and bonus damage, str for warr (warrior), dex for rogue, and int for smurfs(mage, sorc)

some ones to add:
HOT: heal over time, (or temperature or sexy)
wep: weapon (idk how many people use it)
Idk: i don't know
dmg: damage
smurfs: mages

People type j only because they are in the middle fight or to make it faster(before other team block the spot).
That 4 letters takes long time sometimes. :p

Ok guys, some of the new abbreviations are getting a bit off topic (i.e. ppl) and some are meaning OBVIOUSLY the same thing (i.e. 1v1, PvP) and most of them are obvious and are almost not abbreviations but just a shorter way of saying something (i.e. Cu)so I'm not going to update this thread very much until I really see something that is useful and not obvious (i.e. HoT=Heal over Time).

BUT, I will be adding any legitimate ABBREVIATIONS of Arcane Legends (i.e. no such thing as HM=How Much, because these are short forms that some players create among themselves and each player has a different meaning for their own short forms) into the thread (i.e. KM=Kraken Mine). Note that I will not be adding anymore type commands. (i.e. j=join)

STG - Spacetime Games
H/s - Health (regeneration) per second
M/s - Mana (regeneration) per second
Hp - Health point
Mp - Mana point
PT - Planar Tomb (PT1,PT2,PT3)

Dragoonclaws
02-18-2015, 05:51 PM
what does "scaled" mean?

scaled means ''adjusted to [reference here]''

Ex: We say that Watcher's tomb are scaled to the highest level player present in the map. It basically means that the difficulty level of the monsters in that tomb will be adjusted to the level of the highest leveled player in the map.

btw this thread is about Abbreviations, please check dictionary for normal words xP
