And if you're relying on them to do something, you can be sure that they will do just about anything but that.

    Theoretical Optimization (TO) is any optimization you do based on theoretical application of the RAW without regard to whether it would be allowed in a given game.

    Practical Optimization is any optimization of a character, item, or other rules-made construct you plan to use in an actual game.

    They are often related in some way, but they are not dependent on each other, nor are they antidependent.

    "High optimization" is generally what people mean when they speak of optimized characters, in general. Something that is tweaked to get as much power and effectiveness as possible. It can be theoretical or practical. Practical optimization starts as theoretical, and then gets refined to fit into a given game under a particular GM.
