As with most games... or professions... or groups... EverQuest (EQ) has it's own unique phrasing, terminology and slang.

Much of it can be, and often is, borrowed and adapted from non-EQ sources, but some of it is 100% EQ.  Some of it may also have multiple meanings, depending on the context in which it is used. Additionally, you may find that on different servers, there may a variation in preferred terminologies!

>> This page has a lot more than just definitions! It also includes tidbits, lore, "how to" and similar. <<

>> The best way to use / search this page is to use the Keyboard Command Cntrl-F and then type in a keyword to search for. <<

Do you know of any I should add? Did I miss any? Did In get any out of proper alphabetical order? Any suggestions on a topic to add? If you note any errors, misspellings, item name errors, misinformation or anything that needs addressing on this page -- PLEASE let me know via an in-game EQ Message (Bonzz on the Bertoxxulous server), or post on Bonzz's Discord Server!

If you decide to use any programs to help you with EQ, you do so at your own risk! GM / Dev Piestro once posted that programs which give you an unfair advantage and allow you to do things you could not normally do, is cheating.  So don't do it! I mean, come on, where is the fun in playing if you are not actually playing? Now, with that said, Devs have rarely ever clearly, specifically or directly said that any specific program is okay, or not! Former GM / Dev / Community Relations Manager Piestro once cited guidelines on what is not considered cheating (the thread seems to have been archived and no longer in EQ Forums, but you can see what Piestro reportedly said here). Other Dev comments that are still in EQ Forums are imaged below (click the images to see the original posts). As a note, I will not include specific Programs that Players have used on this page and 100% do NOT recommend or promote using any Program that can aide a Player to cheat. Quite the opposite! Don't do it! However, in the Dev postings, they did say that Parsing and using Item Collectors is OK (they just read logs, they do not help you do anything in-game).

Sometimes Ramp is an AoE, so an RT is useless. In such cases, the best way to avoid AoE Ramp is to fight at max melee or be out of melee range all together.

STRATEGY - This is your approach to defeating content in EQ. Methods and proceesses (figuring it out) you use to defeat MOB's, Missions, Raids and so forth. However, there is sometimes a fine line between "Strategy" and an Exploit (see Exploit), particularly when you happen upon a situation that you know should clearly not happen / exist... such as a bug / Dev Oversight. So strategizing is a huge and necessary part of EQ! It adds the fun / challenge of "figuring it out" to the game. However, be wary of stepping over the line from Strategy to Exploit.

As a result, other Players will hear same and be annoyed by it. So, "don't be that guy" and use Push to Talk instead.
