Terra 2 and Terra 3. They are roles where a solo player completes tasks in a SC (speed clear). The "t" denotes terra and the number refers to the job. There is also MT-main tank and LT-lab tank.

Full run is all four areas without Mallyx. Most teams don't bother doing the Mallyx part of the quest and start another full run after merching drops. Mallyx is done when you don't have anything better to do.

The amount of Globs of Ectoplasms for a sale / offer


Ectos are used for many trades over 100K because you can only trade 100K during one trade.

Going along with 27e...

What are the common currencies these days?

Back when I played and knew this stuff it was just ecto's.

For example...

27a = ?

..and I guess keys and lockpicks are used these days too?

Also, what's the standard price used for determining the value of these items?

I never really did ecto trading and so I always just told people that the value of an ecto was what I could sell it for to the vendor.

k = platinum (where 1k = 1000 gold, which you probably remember)
e = glob of ectoplasm (price is generally trader sell price - 1k; alternatively observe traders)
a = armbrace of truth. Sometimes shortened to 'armbraces' or 'arms'. Generally worth 22-23e but can swing between 21-25e at times. Only high end traders need currency of this magnitude.

In addition to those, some people trade zaishen keys (as you've found out) and high end minis, but that's less common than the above.

Zaishen keys are pretty much fixed at 5,5k and Lockpicks seem to go for 1,25k in Spamadan.

Old School shields (what I assume you meant as pre-nerf) are highly individualized so they may be worth a lot of cash, or they may be worthless. Best bet is to just post some pictures in the Price Check section of Ventari's Corner and see what the playerbase can tell you.

'Old school' generally refers to items that aren't inscribable. These are worth more as it's harder to get a perfect set of stats (rarity -> lower supply -> higher price). On an inscribable item, the only things you can't change are the skin and req. On an non-insc shield there are those and up to two two non-insc mods.

My understanding of 'pre-nerf' shields is that there are some combinations of mods that only dropped on shields before Anet changed the drop possibilities. Thus, there are desirable combinations that are no longer possible to obtain. Thus, it can be considered a nerf.

For staffs the only thing i can think of is:

* Adept staffhead (Halves casting time of spells of item's attribute (chance 20%))
* Aptitude not Attitude inscription (Halves casting time of spells of item's attribute (chance 20%))
* Standard recharge mod (Halves casting recharge of spells (chance 20%))
* Staff wrapping of enchanting (Enchantments last 20% longer)

The 40% refers to the 2x 20% HCT, the other 2 mods are 20%...

One I've been missing in the list is pbAoE = point blank area of effect
(to describe AoE damage dealt in the area arround the caster like e.g. Hundred Blades)

Perhaps you can add the term "OS?" I've been wondering for a while, and I've deduced it means old-school from the posts in the thread. (Is that right?)

That is correct, in particular in terms of GW weapons or items.
