I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

1. Farming (verb) - the act of collecting items or currency in order to power up your character.

"I'm farming gold so I can get something good at the auction house."

2. Agro/Aggro (verb) - to draw the attention of one or more hostile NPCs and in the process to get attacked by said NPCs.

"That idiot just ran ahead and agroed the whole room."

3. Chain Agro/Aggro (verb) - to cause a chain reaction in which one agroed hostile NPC triggers another nearby hostile NPC and so on.

"Watch the chain aggro. It'll get you every time."
