    There are little letters next to the creatures name. This is a identifier for the creature, allowing you to easily communicate with your team mates a specific mob. These letters run A-Z, then start back over with A once you finish the alphabet. There is no other point of this tag, however all team members will see the same alpha-tag as you do on each creature.

    ^ that is 100% false! {and of course after being corrected, his post was updated, go figure...lol!}

    Its basically a built in marking system that follows the alphabet from A-to-Z. And will will go through said alphabet at least 3 times per dungeon.{first group of mobs A, B, C ~ second group of mobs D, E, F, etc etc etc} As long as people know their ABCs{surprisingly not very many} and assist the tank, its a very nice system to use without the need of additional markings!

    Umm, personal experience playing the game and watching it work exactly as I just described. Anyone can see that it does just that!

    The fact that as you fight things it 'coincidentally' cycles through the alphabet?

    It's an easy way to mark if youre tanking A,B,C. It is also follows the alphabet until it resets. If there is 26 monsters you will go from A-Z
