In one of Philosoraptor's quests, he read it 'says' but what's written in the dialogue is 'say'.

It's not a grammatical error nor a major one.

It is either of his two quests, I am not sure, though.

Location: Mangrove Marsh, Azteca.

When Endora Tangletree grabs the mist wood from you for makng a crafting station it says "Miss Tangletree gets to work with hammer plane and saw. In a few moments you have a nice little work table" When it should be "Miss Tangletree gets to work with a hammer plane and saw. In a few moments you have a nice little work table"

Not a grammatical error nor a major one.

In one of Inyanga WhiteStripe's dialogues, he read it as "Old Times" but what's written in the dialogue box is "Old Time".

Part of the quest "TAKE ME IN".

Can be found in the Banyan Tower, Tyrian Gorge, Khrysalis.

While it's not exactly a text error, I just fought the Samoorai Youchimo. His defeat speach got cut mind word, on the word "fight". What it sounded like is definitely not kid friendly.

Ok, In "Krokatopia", In "The Palace Of Fire"...

Lieutenant Standish's Quest: After you do the quest that makes you fight...I think 4 Kroks and 4 Flame servants...
When you return to Standish, He says that "I may have taken a few risks but..."

And I always thought that he was suppose to say "It may have taken a few risks"

Sorry That I can't really remember the EXACT quest and exactly what he said, but I do know that it is a quest from Standish and that it is suppose to say "It" Instead of "I"!

Lol I hope I was right

In Myth School quest for the Basilisk spell, I think it is when Drake sends you to the library in Dragonspyre but not totally sure he says "quite" instead of "quiet."

This is awful to have to red pen the red penner.

One big correction to the chat should be the words of the following: Whole or Hole; Especially words that can come out to another word, I won't make an example because it's self-explanatory, but Everyday words that are commonly used do come across most being censored. It's very frustrating to have a simple conversation without RED coming all over my words. So, Take in mind, I'd appreciate it if you correct some censored words. It's simply called "Open Chat" for a reason.

As ironic as this may seem (and, in fact, is), the final line of the update notes under the section "Miscellaneous Updates (it's the little things) reads: "Plus more spelling fixes than we can possibly list!" The word 'can' should be changed to the word 'can't ' so as to properly reflect the meaning of the point the author was trying to convey. ("Ironic, isn't it?" - Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes)

In the Grizzleheim book quest it tells me to find the story of the eorl which should be story of the earl
This might just be because British grammar is different from American grammar.
Please may KI fix this

Many thanks

A funny thing the sylvia drake ghost boss should be death and not life she was life but since she was a ghost she should be death school.

No, this is correct as is. Take a look at the differences between the 2 yourself:

Plus more spelling fixes than we can possibly list!

Plus more spelling fixes than we can not possibly list!

See your error now? If not, then keep looking at it until you see it. The orange line is correct grammar, trust me.

In Wysteria, the sign outside Geoffery Spellsmith's door says that he sells athames, decks, and wands. I checked inside, hoping for a new wand, but he doesn't sell wands. I hope you will take down the wand symbol so others will not become confused as well. The wand symbol is also on the map.

To add on, what Malorn is saying is that because of the word "than", it means to compare the opposite of what is intended. If the word "than" were not there, then it would be safe to say "Plus more spelling fixes we cannot possibly list."

And kudos, Malorn, love the name... taking after the death student in Ravenwood?

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.
brillant light a spell and cloak a spell then this to are combined it makes
brillant light give the caster a charm and not the party and it's a globe spell

I'll try to pay more attention on my next character's journey for any grammatical errors. One that really stuck out to me that I've noticed on all my characters (simply because I enjoy reading what bosses have to say) is that Calypso, one of the last few bosses in Celestia, still says "Journey now to the Treasury and recover our treasure. If if is restored, we will lend you our blades!" The error can clearly be acknowledged by the repeating "if"s, where the first should remain untouched and the other should be changed to either "it" or "the treasure". This occurs on the quest titled "Treasure This"; a short quest where you are asked to retrieve and return the treasure to Calypso. Hope this helps!

When you first enter the City of Sardonyx when the mana orbs activate, Ezekiel the Lucent says "Did those mana globes active on your arrival?" But, the voice says "Did those mana globes activate on your arrival?". So yeah, that's pretty much it.

Hi, I have a correction I'd like KI to take a look at.

On quest, Me and My Arrow, the text on dialogue box #3 doesn't line up with the reading/audio.

Ogden Peake says: I promised Arrow a little play-thing when I returned... nice little collar for it to wear!
While the text reads: I promised Arrow a little play-mate when I returned... nice little collar for it to wear!

Please correct play-mate in the text to play-thing so the text and the audio line up.

Ogden Peake is found in the Celestia Base Camp, the quest, again, is Me and My Arrow, and the mistake is found inside the third dialogue box.

Do you know of the spell "Supernova" or "Powernova"? Well in the text chat, "Supernovas/Powernovas" for plural which shows up white. "Supernovae" is plural for "Supernova" and "Powernovae" should be plural for "Powernova".

When having a conversation with friends, if I mention the slowpoke sloth mount, the word sloth appears as red and I can't see the word when I say it. However, my friends see the word with no problem!

Also, I can't say the word whole! It is hard to respond when asked, "How much of this dungeon do you need to do?"
I know that I could say the word entire, but that doesn't come up naturally in a conversation!

Thanks,
Jason Nightshade
