On this wiki's forum there are several abbreviations used. This is a list explaining them for newcomers.

  • Free gift: Are gifts that you can give at no cost to you to your friends.
    When you enter the Friends menu and click the "Send a gift" button on your friend's panel, a menu with two tabs will open up. All items listed in the "Send a gift" tab are free for the gifter to give. They DO NOT come out of your own inventory, thus you can always give these, regardless of whether you yourself have one or not in your inventory. You can give one of these types of gifts to up to fifty friends per day. (Combining Elements (CEs) and some Special Items  See also the Gifting article for more information)
