The japanese word まなぶ (manabu) meaning "learn" is also related to words like "school" and "science". Given the character limit on older games, especially console games like NES and prior systems, one could imagine manabu abbreviated to mana. This is just my speculation given the popularity of early RPGs (aka JRPGs) being of Eastern/Japanese origin.
Soulbound is the system that RotMG uses for certain rare drops, usually from the most powerful mobs in the game. In RotMG, it simply means that only the person it dropped for can loot it. That means, if you saw it on the ground, it was yours - no one else could pick it up. Only some of the best items in the game are protected that way, so it's probably ...

One suggestion I got from someone in-game was Greatest Of All Time Indicating a player who was playing really well. So there was too much goating in that match could mean there were several players in a PvP match that were untouchable. I just can't remember what context I heard it in.
It's something I rarely hear, but associated with multiplayer online games (especially PvP in with objectives) it usually means scapegoating. Now I haven't played a lot of GW2 but in WoW PvP or LoL matches you sometimes accuse someone of goating if he blames another teammate or his internet connection. For the term "He's a professional goat"... well I've ...
"Tilt" originates from pinball tables, where altering the slope of the table would affect the path of the ball. As this is essentially cheating, pinball tables were designed with a tilt sensor, which when triggered would disable all scoring mechanisms (and usually the flippers as well), forfeiting any further action with that ball. A player that's ...

It's most commonly used if you're going on a losing streak and then you become so frustrated that you start playing worse because you cannot focus anymore.
