    Default Abbreviations

    Hi guys!

    In this thread, I'm going to list all the abbreviations and short forms used in Arcane Legends and some from the general gaming world so that people can understand. I would have posted it in the newbies forum since it's usually for newbies, but old players can still read if they don't know.

    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/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

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

    1 int = 10 mana /5 hp

    1 str = 10 hp
