It has to happen eventually. Obviously this stuff is low priority for now, but the texts should probably be cleaned up before release. I've gone through all the FAQs and picked out as many of the typos and grammar errors as I could find.

General FAQ
Quote
Old timers must already be familiar with the vast imaginary world called Estiah, where they have enjoyed a good deal of epic adventures and whole a lot of fun.

Quote
So this is a sequel to the prequel of next-gen game?
I'm not sure exactly what this means, but at the very least an a should be inserted between 'of' and 'next-gen'

Quote
This game may have inherited the name and the lore of the previous game, but the resemblance stop here.
this should be either resemblances stop or resemblance stops; either is correct, but the current wording is not

Quote
All features are available to everyone, there are no paid levels, paid maps, or paid epic weapons.

Quote
A Javascript-enabled modern browser is needed to browse main pages, meaning pretty much everything written after Internet Explorer 6.

Quote
Why on earth did you choose Silverlight, everyone uses Flash ?

Quote
He didn't say when and he's living in a world ten years ahead of us.

Game FAQ

Quote
There are two game modes in Estiah that are very distinct from each other. One is focusing on competitive player versus player battles, and the other is a campaign mode where the player fights monsters and takes on quests, alone or with friends.
the last part could also be fixed by changing the player to players instead of pluralizing fight and take

Quote
the game will automatically match you against an available opponent with your level of skill and experience.

Quote
Battles fought award points

Quote
How does the character creation work?

Quote
You can later create more characters to explore the different paths of the Story mode

Quote
And now the most important question: How do I fight?

Quote
It is highly recommended to go through the battle tutorial at least once

Quote
If you have an emergency and need to quit in the middle of a fight

Quote
an AI will automatically take over and try to finish the battle for you.

Quote
You can left click on any enemy or ally to view detailed information about it

Quote
Keep in mind that if you target an ally and then play an offensive charm, it will be cast on the last enemy that was targeted, or by default a random enemy.

Quote
There are however some specific fights where the victory conditions can be very different, for example the gathering mini-games of the Story Mode.

Misc. Faq

Quote
We still need a hell of a lot of money to make Estiah into a real MMORPG. And because of the inflation, we need $12.1 million instead of $10 million, the sum we announced three years ago.

Quote
Use insecticide. If it doesn't work, pick another brand.

Quote
However, if you think the bug is related to Estiah, you can try our forum board, in-game private message, our contact email, or throw a message in a bottle into the nearest sea.

Glossary

Quote
The Hand is the list of charms that are currently available for the player. The maximum hand size is 5 and can not be increased.
Evidently it's actually 6 right now. I don't know if this is a bug or a typo.

Quote
The broken charm is discarded and its effect is not resolved, but its rune is still added to the rune pool.

Quote
This technique is useful when you have a critical need for one rune, or when you want to free up some space in your hand

Actually, I'll ask you to not report the typos and text mistakes for now.


We'll have a system for auto-fixing these errors that isn't ready just yet but that will be before release, so you'll have to wait untill then to see them fixed.

Taketsuru checks the pulses of the savage lying on a bed of burning sands, remarks he is still alive.
It's not (adventurer) checking is own pulse.

no one yet. but it's really a lot of work, so we may have to wait after release when we got more players.

I'm willing to take a crack at it, though it would probably be best to get a group of people.
