As I note at my place, I always end up calling Sporeggar "little spore dudes". There are a lot of unofficial terms in use, some widespread, some particular to a particular guild or group, some personal. Share!

Please. :)

I propose everyone begin referring to Healthstones as Cookies. That way, I won't be asked in party chat everytime, "WTF is a cookie? Newb."

I'm not sure what to think about Track.

On one hand, he's got some great ideas and opinions about blogging and hunter related stuff. He's even got a Bruce Campbell avatar over at the BRK forums.

On the other hand, he did roll Horde. And not just any Horde, but a big freakin' Tauren. AND...he uses a gun.

I'm so confused.

LOL... So true. I can't think of any other name for them -- first, last, and every time I see them.

Hordie (horde characters or players)

-ling at the end of a class to denote a lowbie and/or non-hunter alt of mine ("druidling", "lockling", "mageling" etc.) I used to call myself a hunterling but I'd like to think I've finally graduated. (Hopefully!)

"Pally tank" is a verb; "to pally tank" means to attack a whoooole bunch of stuff at the same time. May or may not be a suicide attempt. (This is sort of a guild term actually, not just my own. We use it a lot.)

Kitty (DPS-oriented feral druid)

Supertraps (traps that have been enhanced with survival talents)

Failsteel Lawlblade (Felsteel Longblade... this is sort of a server injoke actually)

Hmm... at first I didn't think I had so many but apparently I can think of quite a few... I might have to expand this into a full-blown blog post.
