Grind is a term describes the process required to increase a game characters level, experience, or ability. It's often referred to as the grind because of the tedious task of doing something over and over again, or because the process starts to feel more like work instead of a game.

Grinding is most often performed in MMORPG games when a player is trying to level their character, find a unique item, or complete a quest that requires dozens of kills.
