Kingsisle meant this to be spelled with a K. If you are the only one spelling it one way there is probably a reason.
I just wanted to point out that it's spelled wrong. Whether or not that was intentional is not my concern. I'm just worried about all the kids who will spell it wrong on their spelling tests, on their science worksheets, or even in spelling bees, just because they think the correct spelling is with a "k."

It's not spelled wrong, it's a name and a different word.

Be that as it may, it will still confuse people, which it would not do if it were spelled with a "c." That's all I've been trying to say.

I have been noticing that everywhere in the game and in game-related sites (even in this forum) the word chrysalis is spelled with a "k." It is frankly getting annoying, and the fact that this misspelling causes me to have to think about the word before spelling it is getting too blatant to ignore. Could you please fix this massive error?

Thanks,

The spelling of Khrysalis is an intentional stylistic choice and will not change.

The Grimoire's Edge is spelled incorrectly as Grimiore's Edge- as Grimoire is an acceptable entry in Text Chat whereas Grimiore is not.

This isn't a spelling mistake, necessarily. I noticed that people with text chat are able to say Grizzleheim and Dragonspire. Technically, those are wrong ways of saying those Worlds, the real ways would be Grizzlehiem and Dragonspyre. I was just wondering why we are able to say it.

Grizzleheim is the correct spelling. Or, at least, it should be.

Mooshu - Tamauji - Ancient Burial Grounds

This boss dropped a pair of boots called Probelmatic Boots.

Unless these are special shoes for a proctologist I'm guessing they're misspelled - and should be Problematic Boots.

In the Grand Chasm Past dungeon, Vasek Ashweaver's dialogue bubble at the very end of the dungeon has a slight punctual error.

"Thank you! There's something strange about you... you're not from here are you. Please, take this Vault Key away from the city. I must stay to keep the army from the vaults!"

In the portion of "There's something strange about you... you're not from here are you." I believe that the period at the end should be a question mark. I could be wrong, though.

The Hades and Zeus gear says Hades' and Zeus' rather than Hades's and Zeus's. It is grammatically incorrect. Even though the names end in s, they are still singular and thus need apostrophe s added to the end rather than just an s.

-Jasmine Owltalon, level 95 myth
It SHOULD be Hades' and Zeus' because it wouldn't make sense for it to say it with two s's. It should be one s. if something ends in an s and it belongs to the noun. Like Cactus' possum. The apostrophe makes it the cactus' ownership. Why WOULD there be two s's. I don't think it needs the red mythical pen on it. You can look it up in whatever, Webster's something, I'm not SO sure where it says it. So you can get out a dictionary or something and find it.

You just responded to a 15-month-old post to which Professor Greyrose responded ... 15 months ago. You're also mistaken (per Professor Greyrose's response).

Quest "An Honest Umbra?", in Zurellia's fifth dialogue box, I'm pretty sure that "discretely" should be "discreetly".
Hmmm... maybe an obscure math pun? If so, you can blame Dalia.

In the quest "A Penny Saved" given by Prospector Zeke, the last dialogue box says...

"It rattles and shakes a little bit, and make a strange noise."

I believe it should be *makes. :3 Thanks!

In a certain Mooshu quest given by Sanisai, Shai Fung says:

"Sanisai was smart to send you! I know how to cut supply lines, but I don't have the the military force to do so."

It should really be:

"Sanisai was smart to send you! I know how to cut supply lines, but I don't have the military force to do so."

Bunferatu says "Blah ah ah ah!..." in game, yet the text says "Blah ah ah!"
On the third round, when Bunferatu cheat casts the OP Khruhlu, he says "Death swallow you!" instead of "Death swallows you!"
Malistaire the Undying (Shadow) on the first round says "I cannot be stopped" instead of "I cannot be stopped!"

In the White Knights quest in Caer Lyon, given by Miriel Rivers, the Logres Knights say

"We yield. The Flour is yours"

But there is no period at the end of that sentence.

It's high time I take my red correcting pen through the Spiral again. If any of you studious Wizards think you spot a spelling error in the game, tell me which character and where they are located, so I can check up on their work.

If you're lucky, I'll remember this kindness the next time I need laundry done.
OK, I'm actually surprised that this has not been corrected yet. in the name selector option in the beginning of the game when you create a new wizard, if you are looking for a nice life name such as 'Liam Angleblossom' that would be impossible. for angel is actually spelt angle, like a 90 degree angle. now i don't think that a math term would be good in a wizards name or i could be wrong but angel is not even an option! i think you should either fix it or add a new name option for angel.

I saw someone wearing boots named Dragons Talkers? I know stalker is a filtered out word, but Dragon Stalkers sounds much more reasonable and correct for a pair of boots. Is this a typo, or am i just being paranoid. Also, Typo is a filtered out word as well for some strange reason...

Not sure if this has already been said, but for the first few quests in Savarstaad Pass, the Shieldbreaker guy says "his" even for female characters. I think the chat box is correct, but the speech isn't.
