What is Nax short for in World of Warcraft?


World of Warcraft (WoW) players may refer to Naxxramas as Nax. Originally, Nax was an insanely difficult 40-player (40m) raid dungeon, which sat above the Eastern Plaguelands. In the Wrath of the Lich King (WOTLK) expansion, Nax moved to the skies above the Dragonblight, and it became a 10m and 25m raid.

While some players refer to Naxxramas as Nax, most instead use the abbreviation Naxx. This is because the extra X in Naxx makes that abbreviation 25% kewler.
