Second bug with memory. Out of memory information while loading locations.

Turning aura ON and unequip aura skill from item, doesn't turn it OFF.

Heard about aura animation disappear in water or something like that.



Not only is this not the way to report bugs, this is a spelling errors thread. :)

The name for level 41 daggers is "poinard" (the name of a defunct French auto-maker), which should be "poniard" (a pointy French knife), or "poignard" (if you want to be super-French). In my experience, "poniard" is the preferred English spelling.

For in-game text and dialogue, we have settled on using NZ/British spellings. Ergo, "civilisation", "despatch", "sceptre", "colour", "to-MAH-to", etc.

I think the Alira's usage of "mana" is fine.

Google search for "poniard": 367,000 hits
Google search for "poignard": 5,600,000 hits
--> Poignard it is. Even if it is "super-French".

Just realized its sceptre and colour.
Canada ftw... Sorry~

Hah! Totally cool with that. I just winced every time I saw a "poinard" on the ground. (Although I'll note that if you search for pages in English, it's much closer at 375k vs 379k for me.)

"poniard": 372,000
"poignard": 1,870,000 (and pictures)

Now I do, too. O_O Apparently my machine at work gets different google results than my machine at home.

Yay, consistency! Anyway, poignard is good. Apparently that was used in Diablo as well.
Tarklabargle's new speech about the necromancer appears to be using the wrong apostrophes.
The text description of the quest 'The Way Forward' reads, 'Tarkleigh wants you to find the path o the Emperor's Road' (instead of 'on the Emperor's Road', presumably).

Was just about to post this.
I actually think the 'o' is supposed to read 'to'.
