Spelling And Grammar Errors

The new invasion routes:

 

Invasion in Tirnwood vale is Tyrnorwood vale or such. Just an 'o' and maybe a 'n' too much.

When you reach the harvesting limit you get the following message:

Your harvesting experience limit for this hour expired, ...

(Means that the limit itself has expired, thus you can harvest as much as you want gaining xp all the while.)

 

But shouldnt it be:

You have reached the harvesting experience limit for this hour, ...

(Simply means the limit is reached, and thus you wont gain any more xp this harvesting hour.)

When fighting with a staff of protection i get the message:

 

The_Piper got healed a little because of his/her armor!

 

Should be weapon IMO.

Since the same message comes from wearing medallion of life, maybe it should say "item" or "equipment" instead.

No. Your harvesting experience limit, or the limit to which you recieve harvesting experience has been reached and beyond this point you can continue to harvest, but not gain experience.

I apologize for not being clear enough in pointing out the flaw.

This is the flaw from the current harvest limit message: limit expired

This is what I suggest the harvest limit message to be: limit reached

A limit expiring is very different from reaching a limit.

When I try to send a message to a guild of which I am not a member (with #ig TAG <message>), I receive this message:

 

"You can't use inter-guild messenging, you're not in a guild."

 

Should be messaging. Also, it would seem better to use a semicolon instead of a comma. The two clauses in the sentence are independent, but related.

Spotted this when trying to mine sulphur without gloves...

 

"You need to wear A leather gloves to harvest this item"

 

EDIT: same sentence came up in a joker prize

The #Messages for today's (August 16th, for me) invasion in Tirnwood Underground spelled it as Tirnowood Underground. However, the warning about pending spawns in Tirnwood Vale was spelled correctly. Just thought you should know. :D

Decreased harvesting events day

English: Today there is reduced chance to triger (should be trigger) random harvesting events.

Role Playing: Gaia is pissed off today, she decleared (should be declared) that today random events while harvesting will be even more rare.

Well, not really a spelling error, but a no longer existing website in a #hint:

I'm on the test server going through some quests to exercise the new scripting engine and when talking to Latis he says "Damn it! It's not like I don't want to . . . There is a big draught . . .". It's supposed to be "drought"
