Harvey Maylor's arc, "Upon the Psychic Plane", speaking with Penelope Yin for the second time:

In the first paragraph, I'm guessing that "elestial quartz" should be "celestial quartz".

Not sure this one counts...

 

Tina Macintyre, Rescue the Freedom Fighters mish, completion dialogue:

'Albeit a different Nemesis than our own.'

 

Should be 'from our own,' but maybe Tina's grammar isn't meant to be top tier?

"Different than" is common in American English, so Tina might just have said it.

 

Matthew Habashy has a mission called "Get to the Hellion's underground caverns". This should be "Hellions'"; they are plural.

Pandora's Box Episode 2 Part 4 High in Demand, when you're escorting the archaeologist out and confront the villains by the exit:

[07:39] [NPC] Ghost Widow: So. This is why you could not accomplish your tasks.
[07:39] [NPC] Ghost Widow: You did well to summon me, Nocturne. <name> has grown into quite the thorn in our sides.

Blaster--->Sonic Attack-->Dreadful Wail.   Description says "...reducing their defense...".  However the Detailed Info says "-Res(All)  . . .  -13.00% resistance to all damage..."  Also, the debuff animation on the foes is the down pointing orange'ish shield -Res f/x.   (See attached pics.)

Scientific Law salvage claims to be a "proven scientific principal". Typo for "principle".

Not sure if this counts as a typo, but it is misinformation. There are a couple of Tanker melee attacks I came across that shows an incorrect Average Damage. The most egregious is Barrage, that states it does 101.12 damage for a level 50 tanker (it really does 69.72). It would appear that the Fiery Embrace is sometimes being calculated into the total damage. Nimble Slash is another one.

True - it's a common error, so they may have meant it to show she's more a scientist than a linguist.

 

Unai Kemen: Go to Werewolf World and fix the dimensional patches, mish end dialogue: 'That degree of solitude be a hard cross to bear, even for someone as private as Requiem.'  Should be 'That degree of solitude can be a hard cross to bear, even for someone as private as Requiem.' Unless Unai is a pirate.

I think I'm enough of a descriptivist to say it is widely used enough to no longer be an error.

 

Levantera, Rescue Arnold Decker; you get a clue at the end ("Robotic Remains") which says "It must have falsified it's orders ..." - its/it's again.

In the build.txt file saved out with /buildsave for my Electric Affinity/Electrical Blast Defender, the Electric Affinity powerset is still named "Shock Therapy", and the tier 3 Galvanic Sentinel power appears in the build as "Discharge".

Missing Melvin and the Mysterious Malta Group contains a clue that tells us that Melvin was "pouring through old documents". This should be "poring".

Domination power description:

 

"Nothing delights a Dominator more than inflicting pain. Each time a Dominator attacks, their sadistic nature grows. When your Domination bar is over 90%, you can activate this power to unleash their true potential. Your control powers will typically last 50 percent longer and will more easily Dominate stronger opponents. Additionally, you will fully recharge your Endurance and gain resistance to status protection. Recharge: Long"

 

Should probably be "gain status protection", or "gain resistance to status effects"...

I don't think this is a typo, but not sure where else to report it. 

The Performance Shifter set - the End Mod IO - can be slotted at level 7. (I slotted this in my fire tank's consume at level 16, as I'd just taken it to test this) But - the rest of the IOs in that set require level 17 to slot. 

The description from within the AH does state level 7 requirement, so it's not wrong...but I found it odd that only one of the set can be slotted at level 7 and the rest at 17. (Tried to slot the rech/acc to test, but it wouldn't)

So..not 100% certain this is an error, but pretty sure none of them should be slottable until 17. So consider me an exploiter in this case!

In the redside alignment mission, "Mind Splitting Headache", the descriptive text before accepting the mission misspells Psimon Omega's name several times as "Psymon". The error is repeated throughout the text, through multiple screens, including the popup after completing and exiting the mission.

(I only noticed this because I had just been doing Psimon Omega's missions.)

So, I've done this mission for every one of my characters in the level range 40-45, for Tina McIntyre. It's Part Seven: Shut down the time accelerators.
5 glowies to click, the text reads: "You begin to deavtivate the device."   As most should know, the letter V should be replaced with a C. 

I can't believe I've done this mission 30+times and never noticed it before.

Mr G (Primal Earth), Cracking Faultline mission; the popup says "The Penelope's are fighting each other". Apostrophe.

Here's one I found:

 

There is a mission in the Hollows with an enemy called Ingiter who must be defeated as a trial by Meg Mason. Mission is called Defeat Ingiter. Should the name of this villain be spelled as Igniter instead? Seems like a simple misspelling. There is no text in the quest description that alludes to his name being misspelled on purpose. The AV in the mission is also misspelled as Ingiter, so not sure if that's intentional or not.

This one is big, and pretty confusing.
In Mace Mastery for Blasters, Web Cocoon ( [Epic.Blaster_Mace_Mastery.Web_Cocoon] ) has a either doubled description about requirements, or some kind or recursivity, I can't tell for sure.
"You must have [...] Web Cocoon before selecting this power" huuuuuh, ok, sure. Null, you're somewhere around ? I have a metaphysical question for you.
Edit: also "a more powerful version ['of' missing] of the common web grenade.".
