Add Lumby=Lumbrigde. I think you should let this stay on the forum for some more time. It's been proved several times that even if you've covered hundreds of words, some of the most common were missing. This means we need more people to look through it and find missing words, and we should give them time to do that. :cute:

PC could also mean: price check


"kk" is also used to say O.K. besides just the one "k"


in dutch kk could also mean something really offending, in which the second k stands for cancer...

Don't forget 'Plz', which is 'Please' in the 'P' Section.


And also, W/E means Whatever.

Some more words from the wilderness:

Hybrid = a pure with 2 or sometimes all 3 combat skills, usually ranged and magic.


Tank ranger/mage = A pure with defence.


Pure noob: Something people may call your pure in the wilderness when they are envious at you.


Str(enght) noob: Something you may be called if you have a high strenght level compered to your other stats.


Those are the most common "noob words," but there are way more. :)

Thanks guys, I've updated it and some aren't really needed. For example, OnYx, Drag is already listed as Drag [item]. Thanks for all the help and concern guys! (And gals!)

You missed this:

Bb = Big bones


Dragon bones are also often called Db


You might want to include some more Power-things, like:

Power-ranging = Training ranged without picking up arows.

Power-wcing/woodcutting = Training woocutting and then dropping the logs

Power-fishing = Training fishing and dropping/giving away the fish

Power-cooking = Buy or fish food, then cook it and drop it.


You should also put this little thingy here in:

<>< = Fish/Fishing


I have also heard this a couple of time:

V = Verac (Barrows brother/reward)

Great guide so far Hamtaro.


I found some thing that can be added:


NFS: Not for sale


Can also be "N4S"


At the words that starts with "B" you can add "Brassy". It is Verac's brassard.

Thanks, adding it now :D

I took a look at your special thanks list, and noticed Pez is there twice and i'm listed there 3 times! :D


You also forgot to add this:

<>< = Fish/Fishing

It's quite common to see at Musa Point or other fishing location, when people ask "What's your <>< lv," or "how many <>< have you caught?" If you look closely you see that it's shaped like a fish. :)

2 Things:

  1. You have "MMO(rpg)" listed 'Multi Media Online.' I don't know about the "MMO" part alone, but when you put it all together for "MMORPG," then it's called 'Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game,' instead of 'Multi Media.'
  2. It's not a commonly used word, per se, but you're missing 'MM' for "Monkey Madness."

Hope that helped! :D
