Report Typos Here!

Recommended Posts

Okay, I gotta say this: Reporting typos seems kind of futile in many cases because of the frequent, near-impossibility of connecting the text in question with the name of the mission it's from. Like the one I found below - this is the "turn-in" text, the name of the mission is not shown, and it disappears from the Mission list as soon as I click on the contact. So all I can do is show the typo and give the name of the contact, and hope that's enough to track it down.

 

Oh well, I found this, when turning in a mission to Kyle Peck in Steel Canyon:

Two typos:

"hospitals" is incorrectly spelled, "hopsitals"

 

"...they seem nothing sort of brilliant" should be "...they seem nothing short of brilliant."

 

I also think there should be a comma after "It seems that" in the second sentence: "It seems that, through doctors like Andrew Wells, Vahzilok..."

I was doing the Shining Stars mission "Big Leagues" and was contacting Proton on the Security Intercom.  On the very last page of the dialogue where Proton says "One last thing," the last sentence in the first paragraph has a word "cause" which should be spelled "caused."

 

Augh!  The word is *not* misspelled!  But it is!  But it's not!  But it is!?!?  AUUGHHH!  How do I define it?!?!?!?!

 

Oh, wait!  "Typo!"  It's a typo!

 

Yay!

While street sweeping in Bricks for Crey mobs for a tailor mission some of the yellow/neutral npcs had this dialogue:

[NPC] Crey Public Relations Representative: Quickly! Take it down beofre its too late!

 

Typos of "before" and "it's".

Heads up. In the "Seek Revenge for Darren Wade" mission, Sharkhead Isle, given by Darren Wade, the dialogue of a Tsoo patroller:

"[NPC] Green Ink Man: Seriously, were are the Hellions.
[NPC] Green Ink Man: This is so beneath us."

I'm assuming that should be "Seriously, where are the Hellions?"

 

Thanks, Wake

In the Invention System Tutorial (redside) the contact Charles Ball uses an inconsistent term.

 

"Recipes have different Rarities as shown by the color of their name. Common are White, Uncommon are Yellow, Rare are Orange, and Ultra Rare are Purple"

In Perez Park, speaking to the Reconnaissance Officer next to the closed Galaxy City gate:

"Emercency" should obviously be "Emergency".

are enhancements that con the wrong color or rarity typos?

 

Example Dampened Spirits: Recharge appear Orange but have a rarity listed as Uncommon.

Story Arc: "A Path Into Darkness

Mission: "Search base for clues"

 

Archon Phillipo, the "boss" at the end of the map, says, "You have learned to much. It will cause you an unfortunate end."

 

That should be "... learned too much."

Mission from Jill Pastor in Skyway, "Work on Newspaper Article", after accepting the mission:

The second sentence, "Those areas have are overrun." - The word "have" should be removed.

 

(I'm going to guess that the sentence originally read "... have been overrun", somebody decided to change it to "... are overrun", and didn't completely delete the old words.)

 

This mission is not part of an arc, but is one of the "leadup" missions offered before "The Vahzilok Pollutant Plot" arc is offered.

Part of the Dark Astoria storyline, with the Dream Doctor, turning in "The Choice of Hope Part 5: Twisted Memories":

First paragraph, third sentence: "Hate, [player], that makes us forget what why we love our friends, our family."

 

The "what" in that sentence is extraneous.

This doesn't exactly qualify as a "typo", and I'm not sure if it can actually be easily fixed, but ...

 

In the mission immediately following the one in my previous post, "Find David Hazen's Missing Journal", the floor numbers at the elevators are mislabeled.

 

Here is the first set of elevators on the first floor of the mission map. The mission appears to start on floor C2, and the elevators go down.

913979037_CityofHeroesScreenshot2020_02.17-14_12_15_65.png.f6728bfa149a8ea1b356987d89bbf670.png

 

Taking that elevator down, I naturally arrive on floor C1:

145734135_CityofHeroesScreenshot2020_02.17-14_16_35_51.png.0ee4b113216f43e3d3b38713e0298870.png

 

Traveling to the other end of this floor, however, the elevators are now labeled "Floor C3"

Taking them down, I arrive once more on Floor C2. This floor is also flooded with water, which is odd, since it's not the ground floor:

The elevators at the end of this floor are also labeled "C2", but they're unusable, so I need to take the stairs:

And finding the unusable elevators on this floor, they're labeled C1 (and the water here is even deeper):

1740967636_CityofHeroesScreenshot2020_02.17-14_31_04_98.png.4cf948562000260bd54fa6e694403f21.png

 

This C1 is indeed the lowest floor of the map.

 

So it would appear to me that the very first set of elevators should be marked "C4", and then the next sign should read "C3" to match the sign at the other end of the floor.

 

(And yeah, I know I'm probably the only one who would notice this.)

Keep finding more of these generic ID's for things coming up (and haven't noticed any corrections to previous ones!)
This one's all over the Hess TF text, or should I say the P3149535802 task force. I THINK it should just be his name, right?

The Recipe Name for "Shield Wall: Teleportation Protection, +Res(ALL)"  is "Shield Wall: +Res (Teleportation), +3% Res (All)".  its supposed to be +5% Resistance.  The actual body text in the IO and in the recipe show 5% Resistance.

Mission from Laura Brunetti, "Defeat Faculus and his coven". When she offers the mission, the second sentence appears to be missing a word. I think it should read:

 

"I'm sure that you've tangled with the society of mystics called the Circle of Thorns before, but they have been a plague on this city for many, many years."

The Hero Title "Indestructable" is a misspelling of Indestructible! It's Outlandish that this error made it through and Astonishing that I have never noticed it before!

Not sure this is entirely a typo, but the description text for the Psionic Melee power Mental Strike looks like it is actually the description for Frozen Fists. It looks like the animations and the power itself are still working correctly (Insight procs, for example), but just in the Info window is the wrong text present.

Odd, I checked the info window for this power on both my Psionic Melee brute and scrapper, and it's correct for them. Is yours a stalker or another AT?

Mission from Crimson: "Extract the Circle of Thorns informant"

 

Upon mission completion, a CoT mystic you rescue informs you that the guy you're looking for has fled. The final sentence of the second paragraphs reads:

 

"He has chosen his protectors, and shall profit of perish by that choice."

 

That "of" should be "or".
