Respec Edit

Abbreviation for respecify or respecification. Also known as /respec.

  • Combat Upgrade: Once a character is played after the Combat Upgrade, they will have a chance to move around their current skills. This gives everyone a chance to change their template if they no longer like a profession. Players will be able to respec once every 12 hours for the first 2 after accessing their character post-CU. The respec system is set up based on how hard it is to get skill, not necessarily their skill point value; so that elite skills are twice as valuable as skills in starting professions. Publish 18 will bring one last, final Token Respec for all characters made before the publish. See Publish 18 for details.

Retarded charge Edit

PvP-Version of the zerg-tactic, this phrase is often used in an insulting manner. The location of the clone centres so close at the PvP-Areas allow players to constantly clone and get back into battle, trying to win by sheer numbers while being inferior in numbers.

An acronym of Rolling On Floor Laughing. Can be used as a Social to activate the corrosponding animation.


When a player either says "rofl" or uses /rofl and while the emote is running and they are literally rolling on the floor laughing (looks like a heart attack to some) and the person turns, either with the regular directional keys (when strafing is disabled) or with the NumPad arrows. This creates the effect of, well, a helicopter.
