Really like it. You should consider to talk to the guy who made the F.A.Q..
He could add this list to the F.A.Q..

Excellent this should be stickied somewhere
Underrated stats: Basic human decency, small quantum of respect, microportion of compassion
Agreed. Or why not add it to the wiki?

I think it'd much more organized as a source of info.

If OP doesn't mind I'll add it over there.
Basics of how to play (by Malice):
Walkthrough for Act I and II (by KrapnoV) :
Mechanics - how the game works (by Malice) :
Crafting Guide (by Invalesco) :
Mechanics videos (by Eztheal) :
A lot of these aren't used.


RM : Reduced Mana

Most people refer to this as RMC (reduced mana cost)
IGN: Jerk, Princess - the easy way to trade currency
You could add: IAS - increased attack speed

@Singakiwi : feel free to copy anything I write on the forum... it's copyright free ;)

@taekvideo : well... those I did put in the current list are some I did encounter. Now, I can't statistically say whether they are "commonly used" or not.

@Never_nou : I'm not sure all of those would be used in normal conversation.. they seem pretty much belonging to a theorycraft post. And even then... Minion Equipment ? Huh... what do you mean by that.
