      first time ever i hear someone calling the guild master "GM". I always know GM only as Game Master, even in all the other games i played. Why would somebody use this for something else, it will just create confusion....
      I also found this extremely confusing in the beginning when reading the forums. Can we all just agree that GM is Game Master and Guild Leader is GL or something...

    • Can we get a running list of acronyms and other relevent info that players whoz haven't played would need to know. ?
      Edit Just off the top of my head in no sensible order: (sorry if some of these are painfully obvious, going to assume people haven't played other MMOs)
      LFG = looking for group, also used for cutting group and subbing other things example: LF Staff Crafter, etc.
      LFM = Looking for more (example: LF1M Tank means player has a group and needs 1 more tank player to go to a dungeon or something)
      WTS = Want to sell (ex: WTS direwolf pup 4M) (4 million silver)
      WTB = Want to buy
      Meta = the current "best" build that everyone is using (changes frequently)
      HG = Hellgate
      DUNG or DG = dungeon
      AH = Auction House
