Typos - Should We Post?

I just saw a thread on here about a typo in Vellosk, and it made me wonder - Is this something the design team is interested in?

I ask because, since starting Neverwinter in December, I have played through and enjoy most of the Legacy Campaigns and Undermountain. But since starting Sharandar, I have been STUNNED by the number of typos. The one that stands out most recently was being told to go kill some "soldires" instead of "soldiers."

On one hand, these typos are minor, but they break immersion and I have encountered as many in Sharandar as I have throughout the rest of Neverwinter combined.

Should we report these typos, like a second layer of editing? Or is that not a good use of time?

I played through with my dwarven fighter on PS4, but pretty soon I'll be starting against an elf rogue on PC...everything will be new again, and I can keep an eye out if it's warranted.

    They don't care, even if it is somewhere in the FACE of the design - it will still take years.
    Forum threads..huh. But you can still enjoy in-game tickets, the answers are very satisfying: "we're very sorry, we understand how annoying this bug can be, but can you just ignore it, please?"

    Yeah, technically it should be reported in the bug section. Realistically, they probably won't do anything about it.

    Thanks, both of you guys. It's a nagging annoyance in the latest module, but I don't want to scream into an abyss, either!

    Hey @chaderickrax#3780 ! We always encourage reporting of typos but fixing them often gets reprioritized for larger issues.

    The quest description of one of the bounty tasks in Sharandar, I forgot which one, has "int" instead of "inside". Looks like someone in the dev team got confused between quest programming and quest writing lol 😆

    Correcting a typo should take a few minutes, surely? I mean, it's not like we see them fixing loads of larger issues either - the only ones that get that level of priority treatment are those that cost Cryptic money and those are very infrequent.

    On the upside, we've seen how fast Cryptic CAN fix issues when the will is there...
