1. The first section is titled Basic SWTOR Abbreviations but the vast majority came from older games, many from WoW specifically, or the internet in general.

2. Pretty sure you made up most of your AC terms.

Sco Scoundrel
PowT – Powertech
Mer – Mercenary
Oper – Operative
Snipe – Sniper
Sorce – Sorceror
Assas – Assassin
Jug – Juggernaut
Mar – Marauder
Mercenary is usually shortened to Merc
Assassin is usually shortened to Sin
Sorceror is usually shortened to Sorc (pronounced sork)
Never seen Sco or Snipe or Mar or Shad
The rest are correct

3. I lost interest after your obviously made up AC terms. Nice try though. I suppose someone new to the gaming world may find it useful...

I dont know why nobody has pointed out this before but the whole first section is just a copy paste from a similar list for World of Warcraft and does in fact include quite many words and terms that have absolutely nothing to do with SWTOR and only exist in wow.

Would have been a good idea to edit those out.

Addon(s) – Third party programs that are added to the game to customize it in such a way
There are no addons in SWTOR

Dailies – Refers to daily repeatable quests players do for reputation or money
Well there are dailies in this game too, but no such thing as "reputation". This is from wow

FP – Flight Path
No such thing in SWTOR. Well there is the taxi system that kind of serves similar purpose, but they would not be called FP
Also FP = Flashpoint

Gearscore/GS – An addon which is an outdated version of item level.
An addon for World of warcraft. There is not anything like that in SWTOR

GM – Game Master, a person who works for Bioware
Well you got that right. I'm actually surprised that you actually had that one corrected so that it does not say Blizzard

Heirloom – Another word for BoA gear.
Only WOW has heirlooms

HK - Honor Kill, you receive honor for killing another player.
Only WoW has honor points

iLvl – Item Level. Appears on gear as: “Item Level 15”. Needs no addon
Again a wow term. While items in swtor kind of have levels, there is not same kind of item level system that is refered here

LFW - Looking For Work, used by people with maxed professions
They are called crewskills, not professions in this game

OS – OffSpec, the spec a person uses least (Opposite of Main or Primary Spec)
There is no dual spec in this game at the moment, so no such thing as offspec. (it is possible there will be in the future)

Proc – Indicates an ability with a chance to occur, such as certain trinkets.
another copy paste from a wow list

Spec – Specialization. Refers to player talent trees.
They are actually called skill trees in this game (although majority of players do still call them talent trees)

Stats – Statistics. Refers to how much agility, stamina, spirit, intellect, etc is on a given object.
While "stat" is a term that applies to this game too, what you have just listed (much agility, stamina, spirit, intellect) are stats that only exist in World of Warcraft. No such stats in this game

Twink – A player with the best gear in each slot for their level, usually with disabled XP
I dont think it is possible to disable xp gain in this game at the moment

OOF / OOM – Out of Focus/Mana (Usually said by healers & Casters)
Mana? Focus? No such things in this game

Raid – An instance with harder bosses, requiring more than the usual 5 players
In this game they are called operations.
And the normal (non operation) group is 4 not 5 players

Recount – An addon some people use to display damage output or heal output.
WoW addon. No such thing in this game.

Rez – Resurrect, a spell used by DKs and any class with a healing tree.
There are no Death Knights in this game. Also all classes here can res, although only healing classes/advanced classes can res in combat

Others might be ok to use in this game as such, unless I missed something...

I'm just saying that don't just copy-paste a list of WoW (World of Warcraft) abbreviations and say it is list of SWTOR abbreviations when half of the things on the list refer to things that only exist in wow and have nothing to do with SWTOR.

So please either edit it to fit SWTOR or just say it is list of MMO terms that does not fully apply to SWTOR

Why would he re-invent the wheel when MOST of the terms are common. If there are changes, why not point them out curteously, instead of beating the guy for what is actually a really good idea?

An important SWTOR term for new players it EotT - Eye of the Tiger. It's a quest to rise up and defeat the opposing faction that awards a ton of XP if you're up to the challenge.

Since I was very new to SWTOR and i loved playing pvp and flashpoints but when i played my teammates would say the abbreviations so I felt like a retard to say what does that mean. So I am glad that someone posted something like this.
“When I left you, I was but the learner, now I am the master.”

But there are specific terms in there that LOTRO doesn't use - Addons being the first glaring one. I also have issue with some of your definitions.
