What Does BOA Mean?

BOA means Bind On Account in an online gaming context but Bank of America in business context.

Bind On Account

In gaming, BOAs are features of MMOs (Massively Multiplayer Online) games. They are items that when found or bought cannot be sold or traded to other players. However, BOAs can be allocated to another character from the same account.

BOA differs from BOE (Bind On Equip), which does not allow items to be transferred at all, even between characters on the same account.

BOAs are similar to HEIRLOOMs. In fact, in many games, the terms are interchangeable.

Bank Of America
