EverQuest: "Disarming Gnolls"
Posted: Monday July 10th, 2000 by Woody

GU began its life as a way to amuse my guild mates. Hence the "GU", as the command /gu was how you spoke to your guild in game. To that end, early on in EverQuest you increased certain skills through repetition. Playing a Barbarian running through Blackburrow was a necessity to get out into the larger world. So, in order to get my disarm skill up, I found a gnoll in a relatively safe place in Blackburrow. I would hand him a crappy sword, and practice disarming him until he died, loot the very sword I'd just given him, wait for him to respawn, and repeat the process.

At least, that was the conceit. I'm so far removed from those halcyon days I can't remember if this was a thing you could actually do. test
