From Dofus

Dofus talk is a strange flavour of the English language, mixing Dofus jargon (item and monster names...), Internet slang, MMORPG slang and abbreviations.

  • Internet & RPG slang can be found on the Wikipedia (list).
  • For the Dofus interface commands, see the Command page.
  • For Dofus-specific abbreviations, see below.

Some of the more Dofus related terms are summarised below.

Contents

Slang

A term that indicates that you are ready for a battle. You can do this by clicking on your character and selecting "Slap", but some people might type it instead. Typed variations might include "Aie" "aie" "i" "a" "pie" "! eiA" or anything similar.

Ding

Term used to indicate the levelling of a character. For example "/g I dinged!"

Hybrid

Refers mostly to the distribution of status points and spell points (based on the status points) on builds to exploit a more versatile build but with a less massive power compare to a pure build.

Nerf

Nerf is slang for making a character or item less powerful, in order to promote game balance, or fairness. See also Wikipedia:Nerf (computer gaming)

Pass

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

To nerf is gaming jargon that roughly means "to weaken" or "to make less effective." The term originated from the Nerf brand of foam toys.

The term is used by players of computer games (not just Guild Wars) to mean the reducing of certain content's effectiveness that the developers of the game have deemed unbalanced, over-used or an exploit (e.g. reducing the bonus of certain weapons, reducing the damage of certain spells, etc.).

The opposite of a nerf, i.e. making something stronger or more effective is usually called a "buff". However, the two terms often blend in with each other, if, for example, the monsters in a particular farming spot are "buffed", it can be said that the farming spot has been "nerfed". Similar comparisons can also be made in the PvP community.

Nerfing is usually done by releasing a game update. In Guild Wars, there is no way to avoid "nerfing" as updates are automatically downloaded.

Examples

Examples of nerfing done in Guild Wars:

  • The spell Chain Lightning was made weaker in the summer of 2005 by reducing its damage and increasing its activation time. This made it less potent and easier to disrupt. This was in response to the domination of PvP teams that were composed of Air Magic spikers.
  • The explorable areas Witman's Folly and the Underworld had new/modified monsters introduced to make them harder for players to farm "solo." The additions and modifications comprised of adding an enchantment removing creature because enchantments were the secret to being able to farm that area alone.
  • Around the release of Factions, the number of minions was capped based on the player's rank in Death Magic. This was to place a cap on the effectiveness of minion masters.

Nerfs were a species of antlered, herbivorous mammal found all across the galaxy.

Contents

Biology

Nerfs were quadrupeds characterized by their four, curved horns and shaggy coats of fur. The common nerf stood about 1.3 meters at the shoulder. Their mass of hair tangled easily, creating a perfect web for insects and foreign objects to cling to. Thus, they carried around a pungent odor. Nerfs often chewed on their cuds, creating excessive spittle that further added to their disgusting image. The spit was sticky, black in color, and near-impossible to remove from clothing. Their saliva also had acidic qualities, and could cause burns if it landed on exposed skin.

Male nerfs were generally larger and more aggressive than their female counterparts, with more pronounced horns. They were known to trample the young and batter the females. Because of this, males were kept separated from the rest of the herd. [1]

In the wild, nerfs were common prey for predators such as manka cats and taoparis. They were often hunted by sentient beings such as the Gungans. Nerfs had unusually keen night-vision, helping them to spot nocturnal predators at ease.

Domestication

Nerfs originated on Alderaan and were raised on farms and in animal nurseries on planets such as Alderaan and Kashyyyk. Because of the nerfs' importance in the galaxy, they were exported from Alderaan and bred to exist on other worlds, specifically in the Core and Inner Rim, thus the Nerfs did not go extinct when Alderaan was destroyed in 0 BBY. Nerfs were not commonly found beyond the Mid Rim, since most ranchers chose to breed and raise the less-troublesome Bantha. Some planets developed efficient nerf production and monitoring programs, such as the Fennesa Nerf Herding Council.

Herders of the beasts—nerf herders—were well known for being as scruffy-looking and surly as their livestock. They would take the females and young out in the field to graze for weeks at a time, while the males ate harvested grasses back on the ranch. Although nerf herders were looked upon as lesser beings, their role in society was vital. Nerf-hide and fur was treated with chemicals and carded into sheets of wool for use in clothing, foot-wear, and furniture.
A nerf and herder.

Nerf meat was among the most profitable in the galaxy, and nerf steak restaurants were commonly found in the Core Worlds. The nerf meat industry was a very important sector of the economy of planets such as Olanet. Some companies were dedicated to processing nerf meat, such as Haugg Nerf Industries, Grand Horn Ranch Corporation and Davengatt's Double-Zed Nerf Ranch. [2] [3] Nerf meat was prepared and served in a variety of ways such as:

Subspecies

Because of the nerf's ability to easily adapt to harsh environments, several defined sub-species existed. Alderaan itself was home to two sub-species of nerf; the common plains nerf, and the leaner forest nerf. A number of nerf breeds were also found on the Tunroth Triumvirate worlds.

A Grizmallt nerf.
  • The Grizmallt nerf was exceedingly rare and could only be found on the planet Grizmallt. They bore a strong resemblance to eopies with antlers. In fact, their lean appearance had led some xenobiologists to question whether or not the creature was in fact a true nerf.
  • The Mountain nerf evolved on Fennesa after being brought there by a group of colonists. The colonists allowed the nerfs to wander freely through the mountains, and they soon began hunkering down in caves. This made it difficult to capture them for shearing. Their spit was more acidic than the common nerf, and could cause burns on the skin if not promptly washed off.
  • The Wildernerf was, like its name suggests, a wild species of nerf native to a number of planets, including Noqiuvzor.[9]

Nerfs in culture

  • Nerf-throwing was an illegal and unorthodox sport in which contestants would throw nerfs for distance and accuracy.
  • Nerf-pox was a mild infection common among Alderaanian children.

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

"Nerf" is a term used to describe the altering of a card's effect or ruling, or of it's Forbidden/Limited status, to make that card or a certain deck that revolves around that card, far less powerful or more situational than it was previously. For instance, "Card of Sanctity" in the anime was given the effect of allowing both players to draw until they had 6 cards in their hand. When it was printed as a real-world card in "The Lost Millennium", that effect was changed to the card's controller removing all cards in their hand and on their side of the field from play to draw two cards. Since the card was so drastically changed in effect to make it far less powerful and - therefore - less desirable, a player may see fit to call it "nerfed".

Another example is the card "Major Riot"; originally, its effect would activate whenever a monster was returned to its controller's hand, regardless of how it was returned. Recent rulings, however, changed it so that the monster must be returned by the opponent's effect before "Major Riot" can activate. Since the change in ruling severely reduced the amount of combos that could be used with it, it can be considered "nerfed".

A third example is the card "Berserk Dragon"; originally the card said "..can only be Special Summoned by the effect of "A Deal with Dark Ruler".", making it a Semi-Nomi monster when first released. It was later changed to "...except by...", changing the card to a Nomi monster. "Chaos Sorcerer" also says "...can only be Special Summoned by...", however, this was never changed to "Nomi". Both of the cards had the same text for Special Summoning, except one was changed to Nomi.

A final example would be a change to the Forbidden/Limited List to limit "Thousand-Eyes Restrict", "Metamorphosis", and "Scapegoat" at the same time, to curb the use of Goat Control Decks. Many players did not see the reason for limiting all three cards, and this was further compounded when, in a later List, "Thousand-Eyes Restrict" was switched from Limited to Forbidden, without altering the status of the two other two cards. Therefore, the very Deck that these limits were supposed to curb was considered "nerfed", as the one major strategy of the Deck was greatly weakened, and later nullified completely, undermining the entire point to the Deck. Even in Traditional Format, this Deck is still greatly weakened.
