And You Thought a PUG Was a Snub-nosed Dog

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 update of the guide covers all the acronyms and terms that start with the letters N through R, along with several updates to previous letters. Check back soon for further updates.

PUG - Short for Pick Up Group and refers to any group that is created from random players found in the area, general chat or the LFG tool or channel. This is the default type of group for most quests and 5 man instances. However they have a very bad reputation as many times you can get players that are either sub-geared or sub-skilled, which causes issues in completing the quest or instance.
