Default Frequently Used Terminology

This is a glossary of commonly used PvP terminology that may be encountered in people's posts/guides as far as I know them. People may use these terms in different ways as these definitions are by no means official or concrete.

Air Time - The time in which the target being juggled remains airborne.

Auto-Step - For Dainn this is a very fast attack canceling that allows for standard attack strings almost instantaneously (776). However, for other characters it can be a reference to any repositioning dash backwards, often used on wall juggles (446 to juggle a target on a right wall)

Baiting - Techniques which make the opponent try to attack you.

Buff(ed) - Having become better due to a patch or update. May also refer to skills that increase a character's parameters or performance (e.g. Magic Barrier for Siegs)

Canceling - To prematurely end or negate a skill, or delay caused either by dashing, attacking, or using a skill.

Combo - 2 or more attacks in sequence that the opponent cannot escape (except by some skills such as Play Dead)

Counter - Either a reference to Sieg's Counter Attack skill or simply the concept of taking advantage an opponents opening after they try to attack.

Damage Reduction - Occurs every hit after the 2nd air hit on a juggled target, reducing damage an additional 80% per hit up to a minimum of 25% of the original damage. (Percentages provided by albert402)

Direction Shift/Shifting - Adjusting a combo, mid-juggle, to go in a different direction.

Eir Dodge - Eir only command which allows her to jump backwards, or in other directions, quickly. (S [S] [+ Direction] Space)

Half-Dash - A short dash that allows for the standard standing attack string.

In-Fighting - Close quarter combat, also the most respected combat.

Launcher - An attack that launches the target into the air for a juggle.

Luring - Techniques which try to make the opponent do something you want, such as movement or attacking. Similar to Baiting.

Mind Games - The concept of reading the opponent's mind and predicting or controlling their actions.

Nerf(ed) - Having become worse due to changes from a patch or update.

Out-Fighting - Ranged fighting, the least respected aspect of PvP fighting.

Pick-up - Skills which pick the target up off the ground, such as Ice Pillar

Public/Public Challenge/Search - To fight someone using the Start (Searching...) button for more experience, rather than Find User which gives a fraction of the experience.

Side Roll - Tia only command which allows her to roll diagonally sideways. This maneuver does not have any attacking properties (Dash A + S)

Side Step - Sieg exclusive command which allows him to quickly dash to either side. (Dash A+S, Dash A Space, left/right respectively)

Wake-up - The moment in which you, or your opponent, recovers off the ground.

Windmilling - Refers to an advanced juggling technique specific only to Sieg. It involves hitting then sidestepping against an airborne target repeatedly, in a circular motion. This may also refer to a rapid succession of the same technique but in a straight line.

You might also want to add that buff also refers to skills that "buff" anything or just simplify that buff stands for an increase in something.
"There once was a boy who dreamed of being a hero. Who believed sincerely in the battle to banish darkness from a world of light... but light and darkness are equal... and where one exists so too must the other... and when the boy finally realized this he had taken the first step toward being a true hero."
