M8 Edit

An acronym / internet slang for Mate.

MA Edit

An acronym for Main assist. The main assist (MA) is the player in a raid or party who calls the shots on which mob should be taken down next by the damage dealers. The main assist's job is to have one specific mob targeted at all times until it's dead, and then to switch to the next target to be killed, whereas the main tank must switch targets frequently to keep aggro up. In many cases, the MA will sometimes also serve as off-tank which means he will peel the mob he's dpsing off from the tank (by taunt or pulling dps aggro). In five-man groups having a non-tanking warrior, this is common but not universal. [1]

Macro Edit

A pre-set of instructions that are automated to carry out certain tasks by a bot. These are usually against the rules in many games, especially AoC. Some conditions may be acceptable as not all Macros fit the above description, nor purpose.
