Commandonese/Merconese Glossary


Recommended Posts

Due to the merger of Class Forums for mirror ACs, these translation guides have been springing up like mushrooms. In the absence of a thread by the Commando or Mercenary class rep, I'm going to write one up for us, the best damn advanced class in the game.

If there's anything I missed, or if I mucked up any acronyms, please let me know!


EDIT: Updated 11/15/14 for 3.0 changes

I always preferred the terms "Republic Special Forces terminology" and "Mandalorian", especially since most of the abilities aren't class specific, but +1 would vote sticky but can't find a button so Im assuming its not here and you have to contact tait Edited by TACeMossie
