LM’s and LLM

What does that mean? Sorry still learning. I’m use to play Destiny but that game is a little bit chaotic right now.

Jefe
Loot midgets and legendary loot midgets.

As everywhere , forum members liberally use acronyms - no need to apologize. I actually thought we should do a definition list of commonly used acronyms and abbreviations, but never got the energy to do it.

@Jefe

the above quoted discussion is from another thread, a new player had asked about good farm areas for gear, and I had said a good farm in some areas were LM’s and LLM’s and he asked whats that so Jefe hops in and spells it out and mentions a definition list.
So, I give Jefe full credit for this idea, but I’ll get the ball rolling by starting first

Following is a list that will be updated as new terms are posted

We’ve got competing threads! Who’s going to win?!

There it is! @Ronnie_Rayburn, there are a couple acronyms here that should be ported to your post.

After which, this thread should be locked?

2 Likes

L1’s was first. Ronnie’s is also a new thread.

This, but i’d rename this thread because ronnie’s has a better title

2 Likes

I agree and give Ronnie partial credit on the title?

Maybe just Put “BL 2"” in front of what I have?

Edit: Changed, Does it look better now?

I always leave words out and this change does make the thread specifically for BL 2.

@Ronnie_Rayburn
as @Jefe says “L1’s was first. Ronnie’s is also a new thread.” so should see what a Mod’s Opinion is. Never mind see Ronnie’s post a few down from here
