The World of Warcraft (WoW) can be a very confusing place. As with any  large game, and especially any Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) there are a veritable ton of acronyms and terminology that is used by its players. This can be very daunting to the new player, and can even be confusing to many veterans that simply can not remember all the terms.

This first section of the guide covers all the acronyms and terms that  start with a number or the letter A. Check back soon for further updates.

ALT - Generally refers to any character that you have that is not the  one you play the most often. Usually refers to any character that is not  your highest level character, although many players stop playing a high  level character and start a new main character and then do not refer to it as an alt.
