    Things in WoW you mispronounce(d)

    There are so many bizarre titles and names in this game, I am sure some of you have interpreted them incorrectly until hearing them on a microphone or voice overs in the game. What were the ones you were sure were pronounced one way, only to find it was completely wrong?

    One instance I can recall was calling Go'el 'Goal'. I figured it was a good will gesture towards Canadians.

    I always pronounce it Nothrend instead of Northrend. That's about it for me

    Not sure if i am mispronouncing it but I have always pronounces Auchidoun as "ouch i don"
    My name is Cernunnos, I will love you like no other, I have died a thousand deaths, each time I died I thought of you.

    Having some really nice memories of a guy in vanilla who called hunters Tranq shot, Triangulation Shot.
    He was also playing "Warsong GLUTCH" all the time.

    Pandaren/Pandaria, though I've heard conflicting things between the game and the devs.
    (PAN-duh-ren vs pan-DAH-ren)

    Shaman: SHA-men vs SHAY-men

    Draenei: DRA-nye vs DRAIN-eye vs all the other permutations.

    I never noticed the second "i" in Tranquillien for a long time, so I just called it "Tranquil-en"

    Speaking of Quillen/Quillien, the dogs in MOP.

    Used to raid with a guy that said "Trinklet"... So incredibly annoying.

    Know what the worst fucking thing is?

    The portal in Shrine of Two Moons actually says Ogrimmar instead of Orgrimmar.

    I've ticketed GM's twice but they haven't fixed it in over a month.

    A guy in my guild pronounces it "Terrance" of Endless Spring.

    A few things I don't really know how to pronounce despite having looked them up / asked. I just cbf to remember some of them -- such as Scholomance. I can imagine someone will point it out in here ... and I can also imagine I'll forget again shortly.

    Wow, I haven't noticed this. If it's still that way next I look I'll ticket it also.

    Have heard it both ways a lot fo times so not sure what the correct one is. It's for melee.

    Some say: mel-ee and others proncounce it mel-ey or even mey-ley...

    Myself not sure which one is good anymore. Probably one of the last two, but not sure.

    One of our tanks keeps talking about damage migration through armor. I have yet to figure out where the damage is migrating.

    GAr-go-ly instead Gargoyle and Warsong gluch instead of warsong gulch.

    It's enHANcement shamans, not enchantment shamans.

    And it's malFURIon, not malfurryon.

    Not to mention rouges (typing it is bad, pronouncing it is just unacceptable).

    Fatiguuuuee. Not just a wow word, but me and my friends all used to say fatigue like that when we were younger.
