In the fantasy world of the MMORPG EverQuest, the Fiery Avenger (often shortened in conversation to FA) is a Paladin's two-handed sword. In the early days of EverQuest, the Fiery Avenger was inaccessible to players; instead, it was the trademark weapon of Aradune, the GM character of Brad McQuaid. This inaccessibility, combined with the sword's powerful stats and the possession of a particle effect which covered the blade with fire, turned the Fiery Avenger into a subject of desire and frequent discussion amongst many players. Eventually, a long and difficult quest was implemented, allowing Paladins to gain possession of this much-coveted weapon. ...more on Wikipedia about "Fiery Avenger"

Kiting is a term encountered in the MMORPG EverQuest referring to a popular method of killing mobs (monsters) by staying at a distance and using ranged attacks, and running whenever the enemy comes near. Similar tactics may be used in other computer and video games. The analogy is from flying a kite, and the method works likewise: by being able to run faster than the target, a safe distance is kept between the player and the target while the player keeps bombarding the target with spells (or sometimes arrows or other projectiles). This ideally results in a dead monster without the player taking a hit. The obvious disadvantages of this tactic are the annoyances of constant running around, its slowness, and the possibility of 'adds' (other monsters in the area assisting the primary target). The tactic relies on being able to generate more damage per second than the mob's hit point regeneration without running out of mana, and so is limited in this respect. Classes most likely to use this tactic are shamans, druids, necromancers and wizards (who can kite four mobs at a time, called quad kiting or quadding). ...more on Wikipedia about "Kiting"

The Trivial Loot Code (or TLC) was an attempt to enforce a higher degree of roleplaying in the popular game EverQuest. In essence, the Trivial Loot Code made reward items from successful battles to be only retrievable by players of levels appropriate for that battle. It was designed to curtail slumming (high level players lazily collecting low level items as a means of quick cash), farming (repeatedly killing targets to collect items, often wasting an entire zone for lower characters), and ninja looting (uninvolved players harassing others by stealing their loot rewards). ...more on Wikipedia about "Trivial Loot Code"
