  • Dwarves: Dwarfs
  • Enchanter: "chanters" wear bloomers, flail pom-poms, or wield a bullhorn, and repetitively shout rhymes and phrases for inspirational or informative purposes. (see also: Summoner) If you can't type out those two extra little letters, you're a lazy pugging noob scrub. Adding an apostrophe ie. " 'chanter " is pushing it.

    • eg. Grull's Lair, Grull the Dragonkiller
  • Gryphon: Griffon
  • Highborne: Highbourne, Highborn
    • Highborn is the proper spelling in English; the standard Warcraft spelling is highborne, though this makes little sense since 'borne' usually means 'held up or supported' whereas 'born' usually indicates origin or birth. So highborn means high-birth and highborne means high-supported. It might work with some crazy logic. (I am sorry to say this, but whoever wrote this nonsense obviously has no idea of proper English. Without any 'crazy logic' it is immediately evident, that they were called Highborne for the exact reason that makes 'little sense': they were, in fact, held in high regards, or 'borne' high because of their magical powers).

  • Horde: Hord
  • Infernal: Infernel
