Default The Text Issues Thread

Hey all,

I'm creating a separate thread for bugs (?) that involve text -- whether it be proofing-related, display errors, or (in this case) text that is showing up somewhere it doesn't belong.

Shadow, I'm hoping you won't object to such a thread? Those sorts of things jump right out at me (I've had to proof many, many documents and marketing materials at my prior job) and I certainly wouldn't mind helping with a bit of polish.

The first one I noticed was that a monster's description ended abruptly (mid-sentence). I didn't make a note of it, but I'll try to go back and track it down. I want to say it was a Big Sister, but I'll verify. Until then, I'm not writing it down officially.

The list begins:

1: The hover description for the covenant bookshelf is wrong. It has the same description as the shared loot chest.

How about when looking thru the shop if the description of the new item and your current item is too large then they overlap, and it becomes somewhat difficult to read. If I can duplicate it I will take a screenshot.

I don't mind at all. #1 is fixed in version 1.005.

Does this happen to anyone else? It can be hard to read some times

saw a unique item called "Blackguard Pauldrens" a few games ago if I remember correctly (another covenant found it). Should be spelled Pauldrons - with an 'o' - or at least I can't find any sources validating the spelling with an 'e'.

I'm playing in the 1.006 beta patch btw.

here are some I've found recently in the 1.006 beta patch:

1) any Backpacks that I find off mobs or vendors say that they are 12 slots even though they are in actuality 14 slots when opened.

2) every Gladius type sword has an equals mark at the end making all the names Gladius=

3) every Shamshir sword is misspelled Shamshire.

4) I found a piece of armor that was very rare quality and called "reinforced leather helmet" but the details said it was cloth. At least I think it was a helmet and I haven't found any other mislabeled reinforced leather equipment to confirm.

Couple of typo/grammar errors here.



How about: It's good you found <item> when you did. I'd hate to think what would happen if our enemies got their hands on such an artifact.
