The Guide Of Gaming Acronyms In Path of Exile
We’re believe that many people are not unfamiliar with the path of exile, because this game is really too hot. Therefore, more and more people choose to play, then the problem arises, there will be a lot of novice not familiar with the game acronyms, when people talk about these game acronyms, you may not know they are talking about what. GM2V will give you a detailed introduction to the game acronyms to help you understand the game faster.
PoB – Path of Building. Path of Building is an external program that you can use to calculate damage. It is extremely efficient and most players use it. You can download Path of Building here.
C – Chaos Orbs. Chaos Orbs are the standard trading currency in Path of Exile. Of course, PoE Orbs is available for purchase, you can buy more cheap PoE Orbs on GM2V , because you can have a better gaming experience by getting more PoE Orbs.
CI – Chaos Inoculation. Chaos Inoculation is a node on the tree that changes your life total to 1, but you no longer take chaos damage. This is used for pure energy shield builds.
CWDT, CWC, CoC – Cast When Damage Taken, Cast While Channeling, Cast on Critical. These are skills that allow you to use an attached skill without activating it yourself. Their trigger is fairly clear from the names of each gem. CWDT is used in most builds to mitigate some incoming damage.
Alc – Alchemy Orb. This is a form of trading currency. Alchemy Orbs are typically worth about a third of a Chaos Orb.
ES – Energy Shield. In Path of Exile, characters can choose to use life, energy shield, or a combination of the two. Shields ‘stack’ on top of your life. Any damage you take will drain your energy shield first, but once your energy shield is depleted, any additional damage will start chipping away at your life.
Ex – Exalted Orb. This is one of the most expensive forms of trading currency in the game. Exalted Orbs are worth significantly more than a Chaos Orb.
HH – Headhunter. Headhunter is the most expensive piece of equipment in the game, on par with the most expensive currency. If you ever find one, please give it to me.

This list of definitions
DPS – Damage Per Second. This is the total damage that your character is capable of dealing in one second. Unfortunately, this can be difficult to calculate in Path of Exile, as the tooltip damage is often incorrect. External programs like Path of Building (more on that later) let you accurately calculate your DPS.
EHP – Effective Hit Points. This describes the total amount of damage your character is able to withstand before dying, factoring in all sources of damage mitigation. Your EHP is determined by your total life pool, energy shield, armor, and skills.
AD – Attack Damage. This is damage that a character deals. In Path of Exile, ‘attacks’ are specifically damage dealt with non-magical means. Any skill that uses a weapon or fists is considered an attack. Spells are not. The description text for each skill will specify whether it is an attack or a spell.
APS – Attacks Per Second. Your character has a certain attack speed, and will attack a certain number of times each second. Your APS is determined by your stats, items, skills, and a host of other factors. To check your APS, go to your character sheet.
BIS – Best in Slot. This acronym is used when someone is discussing what item to wear in each slot on their character. An item is a ‘BIS item’ if it’s the best possible item for maximizing the efficiency or power of your build.
