THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Terminology M through O

Below you’ll find the terminology for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn from the letters M through O, at the bottom of the page you’ll find a link to the next section of the list P through T. If you keep checking the bottom of the page it will provide you with a link to the next section of the terminologies for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn until we hit Z. Each page will also link back to the Glossary containing all the links for A through Z terms.

M

  • M
    • Million
      • Shorthand
        • Example Sentence: “I got 1M from selling that new Bluebird minion, who would pay so much for a companion that does nothing?”
  • MACC
    • Magic Accuracy
      • Shorthand, no longer used in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, as Accuracy was consolidated to physical and magical all at once. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Stats
        • Example Sentence: “For Turn 5 of The Binding Coil of Bahamut you need a bit over 430 MACC.”
  • Macro
    • Term, used to describe the in game (and sometimes out of game, though that’s against the TOS and bannable!) macro system where a user can make semi automated scripts to be carried out in game with proper syntax. A simple Bard macro could look like the below:
 /micon “Heavy  Shot”
/ac “Bloodletter” <t>
/ac “Misery’s End” <t>
/ac “Heavy Shot” <t> 

In this way, the macro fires off in order from top to bottom. If Bloodletter is up, that attack will be used first and since it is off the GCD it can be used back to back without delaying an attack. As well, if the mob’s HP is below 20% Mistery’s End can be used, also an instant off GCD skill with only a 12s recast that does not disturb the GCD action of Heavy Shot that will follow. By spamming this skill, and doing the same for Venomous Bite, Straight Shot, and Wind Bite the BRD in question can use themselves to the maximum amount with only a few keys needing to be pressed. Constantly spamming the key for Heavy Shot (as is their filler ability when DOTs are up and no other skills are available) will always trigger Bloodletter whenever a crit DOT triggers it’s refresh and then it’ll immediately use Misery’s End if it’s up and then Heavy Shot in such a quick succession that the player can mindlessly spam the same few buttons and be as, if not more, effective than a player who uses each skill independently and watches for procs and triggers at every possible turn. However Macros require specific syntax and proper spelling, when not done properly they can misfire or cause abilities not to go off in the order or designation meant by the player. Macros cannot be used to automate the game or make your character do things such as crafting or gathering or fighting and moving to another mob and fighting that one on its own. Though a lot of the mundane processes of crafting in particular can be easily macro’d so a player doesn’t need to sit and press every single action for every single synth. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Macros

  • Example Sentence: “I mistyped something in my Macro and now it’s using Misery’s End before Blood letter! Oh, it’s spelled ‘Bloodletter’? I guess that makes sense! I thought it was two words…”
  • Malm
    • Term, an in game unit of measurement similar to a mile.
      • Example Sentence: “Ul’dah is several malms from the nearest ocean, no wonder it’s so dry and desolate.”
  • Materia
    • Term, an item that can provide stat boosts to armor and weapons that possess materia slots. By affixing or melding material players can improve gear beyond what they were originally capable of. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Materia
      • Example Sentence: “Materia was such a good and well designed system, but with all the various blocks and things that stop you from being able to customize armor as you want, it’s really quite disappointing.”
  • MB
    • Market Board
      • Acronym, used to denote the Auction House like system of the Market Boards where people can place up items or buy them from another’s retainer similar to an Auction House but with oddly a few more steps to go through than should really be necessary.
        • Example Sentence: “I’ll brt I just need to hit up the MB so I can get some La Noscean Oranges for the quest!”
  • MDEF
    • Magic Defense
      • Shorthand, refers to the Magical Defense of a particular character. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Stats
        • Example Sentence: “The MDEF of Paladin and Warrior is surprisingly more than a mage with cloth, that’s because Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn doesn’t let mages tank and they shouldn’t be getting hit with their cloth. The tanks are the ones who are designed to take damage, both Magical and Physical.
  • Meat Shield
    • Term, slang used for a tank that primarily tanks by losing their HP and less by mitigation, such a tank that fits this bill especially is Warrior who has a large HP pool compared to Paladin and a lot less capacity to mitigate damage. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Paladin and Final Fantasy XIV - Warrior
  • Meld
    • Term, denotes the affixing of materia to any specific item that can hold material. Melding can be done up to five times, referred to as a penta meld. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Materia
      • Example Sentence: “I can’t believe I just succeeded a Penta Meld without any breaks!”
  • Mithra
    • Term, a cat like race from Final Fantasy XI, it never got a male equivalent despite how badly people wanted it and in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn the developers gave the race a male counterpart though the Mithra in Final Fantasy XIV became the Miqo’te they looked identical with the exception of the Miqo’te now having a male equivalent while the Mithra still do not.
      • Example Sentence: “I’m so happy I get to be a male mithra in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, I’ve waited ages to be able to play one!”
  • Miqo’te
    • Term, a cat like playable race in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, modeled after the Mithra race in Final Fantasy XI. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Races
      • Example Sentence: “Miqo’te males have the most unique and interesting animations, it’s like they inherited the better movements and emotes for some reason!”
  • MMORPG
    • Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game
      • Acronym, a genre of video games that requires an internet connection to play, and involves RPG mechanics that mix together with social aspects and partnering up with people potentially across the world to play and fight battles together.
        • Example Sentence: “Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is one of the best MMORPGs I’ve ever had the fortune to play, I hope they continue to listen to the player base and make it better!”
  • MNK
    • Monk
      • Shorthand, a Job in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Monk and Final Fantasy XIV - Jobs
        • Example Sentence: “MNK is one of my favorite classes, since the overhaul in Patch 2.1 it only got stronger in the hands of a skilled player and it’s easier to stay on top of my damage now that I don’t need to focus on Fracture and can keep to my damage abilities on MNK!”
  • Mob
    • Monster / NPC
      • Shorthand, used to denote a monster or aggressive npc
        • Example Sentence: “Watch out for the mobs up ahead they aggro sight, so make sure to avoid their gaze!”
  • MP
    • Magic Points
      • Acronym, the amount of Magic a character has represented both numerically and by a bar. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Stats
        • Example Sentence: “My MP is almost out, I could really use a ballad about now!”
  • MPK
    • Monster Player Kill
      • Acronym, a term that denotes a way to get around PKing, or Player Killing in a non PvP area or environment by getting a monster to kill a player by manipulating various factors such as letting a monster continually do an AOE attack near an AFK or unaware player to kill them.
        • Example Sentence: “I went AFK near a mining node out in Bluefog and I came back dead, somebody was MPKing me with a Basilisk!”
  • MT
    • Main Tank
      • Acronym, used to denote who of the two tanks (or more as most party setups have two tanks but alliances have more) will be the Main tank, taking the more difficult monsters and boss like damage and generally incurring more damage than the OT (Off Tank) and so the healers and dps need to know who they should be helping and assisting first. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Paladin and Final Fantasy XIV - Warrior
        • Example Sentence: “I’ll MT Garuda, I’ve done it before and can handle both sisters without any issue.”
  • MT
    • Miss-Type / Miss-Tell
      • Acronym, used to denote that a person mistakenly typed to a different person or group of person, such as mistakenly typing something privately over the Linkshell chat or Free Company chat.
        • Example Sentence: “I can’t come to dinner tonight sweetie, the car is in the shop.” (followed by, upon realizing this was MT’d to the wrong party) “Whoops, MT!”
  • Mule
    • Term, also referred to an Alt, a Mule is generally more specific however. Mules are specific characters made to hold an overflow of items from the main character(s) so that the main character(s) inventory is not overly stressed or maxed out.
      • Example Sentence: “Brb I need to mule some food over to my main.”

N

  • NA
    • North American / North America
      • Acronym, refers to a generalization of all English speaking players, often interchangeable with EN.
        • Example Sentence: “NA prime time is usually around 6 EST to about Midnight, before and after it starts to drop off and the people who are on don’t tend to speak English.”
  • Nerf
    • Term, used to denote a weakening of something in the game by the developers, referenced from turning something that may be difficult to a nerf-quality (Nerf is a soft foam brand of toys which is where this saying comes from, turning something hard into something harmless like a nerf toy). This usually refers to difficult encounters but also directly applies to when a job or class is weakened or their prowess is lessened to some extent.
      • Example Sentence: “In Patch 2.1 they nerfed Blood for Blood, Raging Strikes and Internal Release to only give 10% boost when cross classed instead of the higher 20% they had before.”
  • Newb / Newbie / Newblet / Newbz
    • Term, used as a non offensive way to say a person is new to the game or new to a particular sort of event or battle. This is used in a way as to shorten the phrase, “He is / They Are / We Are / I Am / new to this.” without seeming offensive or derogatory in any way. This contrasts highly with “Noob” which is the offensive terminology for a person who is new and generally a poor player at that.
      • Example Sentence: “Don’t worry about it Kain, we know you’re a newb, so we’ll show you around Eorzea and help you get on your feet, there’s nothing to be ashamed of for being new, we were all newbies once!”
  • NM
    • Notorious Monster
      • Acronym, used to denote a boss type monster, often very strong with unique stats, look, armor and drops. In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn these are mostly relegated to FATEs and the bosses or mini bosses of the various dungeons and raids therein. There are no World Spawn NMs like other games. NMs are stronger and more dangerous than the other mobs in the game and often look similar if somehow distinguished from the monsters of the same family. Whether it be by size, a unique coloration or (as there always is) a unique name, often of some mythological reference, there is always something to give away that a particular mob is a Notorious Monster. See: Final Fantasy XIV - FATEs and Final Fantasy XIV - Dungeons and Final Fantasy XIV - Raids
        • Example Sentence: “I used to love fighting NMs like Uraeus and Dodore before they became a part of the FATE grind, now there’s not really any reason to do them, even Odin is a faceroll fest!”
  • Noob / Nub / N00b / Nublet / Nooblet
    • Term, a derogatory term for a new person, usually hurled about as an insult rather than a statement of a person’s newness to a particular skillset, job, game or battle. This is often used as a way to get under a person’s skin by calling them inexperienced and often is the case, stupid or dumb in some way as if they can’t understand the most basic concepts. People who generally throw around this terminology “noob” vs “newb” are, ironically mostly people who are new to the game and ascribe to the school of thought that if they call out others and hassle others then their own skills and errors will be covered up. Rarely does this work and most people learn quickly that the most vocal complainers tend to be the worst players and actively avoid them in the future, this seems to be a particular phenomenon with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. While in many other MMORPGs these characters will continue to get groups, they quickly find themselves without one in FFXIV: ARR.
      • Example Sentence: “Did you see that guy, he couldn’t even dodge a single puddle from Titan but he kept calling everybody else noobs as if he wasn’t one himself!”
  • NPC
    • Non Playable Character
      • Acronym, used to describe computer characters and players, often non aggressive or friendly characters met around the world, or those that are interacted with on a daily habit.
        • Example Sentence: “The NPC for the Myth Tomes is up the hill in Revenant’s Toll, she’s the one furthest on the right of the three, can’t miss her there are tons of people standing around her desk.”
  • Nuke / Nuker
    • Term, used to describe a magical / caster class or the spell therein. If somebody asks to nuke, then they are asking for offensive magical spells to be cast, and if a person refers to a Nuker, then they are referring to a person / class / job that can fulfill the role of a magical caster using offensive magic to deal damage. Often used due to magical casters having large explosive spells that can sometimes resemble the awesome power of a nuclear blast or a “nuke” for short. Nuke is a lot faster to type than “casting” and therefore has quickly integrated itself into the current linguistics of not just Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn culture, but all of MMORPGs. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Classes and Final Fantasy XIV - Jobs and Final Fantasy XIV - Black Mage and Final Fantasy XIV - Summoner
      • Example Sentence: “We need two more nukers for Turn 2 since they easily do the most damage and stay out of range of all the worst attacks.”

O

  • OMG
    • Oh My God
      • Acronym, typically used to convey shock or outrage depending on the context.
        • Example Sentence: “OMG I finally got the Allagan Blade to drop after nearly 3 months of clearing this stupid Turn!”
  • OMW
    • On My Way
      • Acronym, similar in use to Be Right There (BRT) but meant to convey present tense, such as the person is currently heading to the meeting spot rather than they will shortly such as BRT denotes.
        • Example Sentence: “I just need a minute to reach you guys, I’m OMW, don’t leave without me!”
  • OOM
    • Out of Magic
      • Acronym, used to convey that the user is out of MP and can no longer participate or cast until they are allowed to regenerate.
  • Orz, OTL
    • Emote, (1) Used by the JP players to denote a person kneeling on their hands and knees with their head held down in humility. This is most often used when a player messes up and owns up to their mistake or causes an issue for the group and seeks forgiveness. (2) NA players and others often use this as well to denote a person slamming their head into the ground in frustration or aggravation.
      • Example Sentences: (1) “I forgot to attune to the Titan crystal. Orz.” (2) “This guy keeps on stepping right into the landslides and dying every time during Super Bomb phase! Orz!”
  • OTP
    • One Time Password
      • Acronym, used to refer to the security token or app that allows players another layer of security by using a single use password generated for them to log in each time. For a while many people were getting hacked who did not have one, or had one set up but never used it.
        • Example Sentence: “With all these people losing their accounts to the gilsellers I’m glad I’ve got my OTP to keep me safe.”
  • Owned
    • Term, used to denote when somebody or something is thoroughly beaten or humiliated or even humbled. It has a variety of uses and can be from congratulatory to derogatory simply based on the context. Though typically it refers to a sound thrashing and used in a self congratulatory way such as after a person beats another in PVP.
      • Example Sentence: “Man that 1.1k Storm’s Eye just owned you into the ground man, lol.”
