Nerf
a pack animal, the nerf was also raised as a source of meat. Originally native to the planet Alderaan, these rangy creatures have curved horns and long fur. Their muscular bodies are lean and supple, and they have a nasty temper. Their long fur mats and tangles easily, creating a mass of hair that colects everything it touches. Thus, the nerf carries a strong odor around with it. The shepherds that raise nerfs - referred to simply as nerf herders - are looked upon as lesser members of society, but when they bring their meat to market they live like kings. The fur of the nerf is often carded into wool, for use in making warm jackets and leggings.

lol. I don't think that's what he meant, Kylilin.

A 'nerf' is when the developer's 'supposedly' do something to make a certain class or player less effective against certain things. For instance, if you invested heavily in blaster skill so you could take out a Rancor, and Verant suddenly made Rancor's immune to blaster fire, all the players who invested in the blaster skill would call it a 'nerf.'

It's an old-school term from the UO days, I believe.
