    What about COD? I've heard it stands for cash/currency on demand, but then again, I've also heard it stands for Call of Duty. Could someone explain the process as well? Thanks!

    And just found the answer to a lot of rookie questions in this thread.

    As I am normally used to leading a horde of undead minions onto Tyrian battlefields or swinging lightsabers into enemies´ faces across a far far away galaxy, I am still fighting with the acronyms of TESO since I made landfall here.

    Upon researching some armor sets' uses, I'm encountering the acronyms BiS and BoE. I'm thinking the later is "Bind on Equip" but all I can think for the former is "Best in Show", LOL!
    Please advise. TY! ;-)

    @kimNak17 "BiS" is "Best in Slot" for gear, "BoE" is indeed "Bind on Equip". I would recommend this thread also, as it also has many of the ESO acronyms : https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/136290/the-eso-slang-and-abbreviation-dictionary/p1

    Finally found a thread with terminology. :smiley:

    Here is a few I keep seeing on the forums and in the game that I have no clue what people are talking about.

    QQ

    Also, what is MOTIFS? Is it something or does it stand for something?
