    Just want to point out that RNG usually refers to the general idea of randomness. Not limited to pulls. For example, when a boss hits your healer 4 times in a row, or you're hit with an AoE Stop just as you're about to deal the killing blow to a boss, you were basically screwed by RNG...

    And a few other minor points/suggestions:

    MB - refers to Magic Break during the time when 3* breaks were common, then more recently used to refer to Multi-Break, the 5* Dance version of FB.
    ProShellga - refers to the pair of mitigation WHM spells that are found in almost all parties.
    Other common ability abbreviations - OD (Omega Drive), SC (Saint's Cross), UC (Ultra Cure), NC (Northern Cross), SSS (Snowspell Strike), PC (PowerChain) + FC (Full Charge)

    Looking back at the link which you had shared with me, @Woodchuck , it appears that this lexicon is quite dated. Perhaps it is just the way Reddit was designed for updates-friendliness. Nevertheless, I believe that my personal contribution to RKF would also help to put it on the WWW map among the FFRK gaming community.

    Old replies aside, anyone else have anything to add/update to the list as the new year of Y2018 looms?

    Nah @Roche, I didn't coin OK PUSB/MUSB. It came from the JP RK community on Discord - first coined by some guy named FFGH-Peter and popularized by SolitaireD. Credit where credit is due.

    Anyways, I'm thinking of creating a glossary of my own for my relic terms.

    Sure thing. And I'll gladly cite them from your list, as long as you're still playing and updating :D
