    I call it Kasarang because of a guildie's toon name that starts with Kas LOL
    but to anyone outside of guild I would call it Krasarang.

    People mistyping zone names normally annoys me, but Crasharang is amazing haha

    I've always spelt it Krasarang, but I sometimes miss the first 'r' when pronouncing it, so I end up with Kasarang.

    I've never seen or heard Karasang.

    Never seen it before, and nor can I understand it. If you speak English as a first language and struggle then I'd love to see you read a Chinese restaurant menu. It's really not that hard.

    lol it's nothing to do with "Struggling". It's just how bad habits catch on and how some people just skim words without reading it properly. I call it Karasang due to hearing other people say it, despite knowing full well that it's Krasarang. I have no problems with reading Chinese menus. My bank statement will back that up. Pretty good with Indians as well. And Dominoes.

    On the other hand, my friend is completely incompetent when it comes to reading. Below are some of his new names for chars/areas

    Goldshire - Goldshear
    Lord Rhyolith - Lord Realnith ? (NO IDEA)
    Alystraza - Alexrazor
    Readycheck, Balance Druid
    MCO, EU Shadowsong

    I was calling it Karasang in the first 2-3 months of MoP. Then I looked at the map during 5.1... I realized it was Krasarang o_o

    I've never called it anything other than Krasarang, but back in TBC, I went through the whole expansion calling Nagrand 'Nagarand'.

    My mother always says Karasang even though I've corrected her multiple times. Well now I know it's not just her.

    I've never seen or heard anyone say Karasang.

    I say it as Kasarang, not because I think thats how you say it, I know I'm wrong, just habit.

    It's what I first read it as, and it stuck.

    KARAsang though? Never heard that.

    I've heard of Tonlong Steppes but not of Karasang Wilds.
    I still have to check multiple times when I write Azshara.

    Excepting typos, I don't think I've ever spelled or pronounced anything wrong in WoW... I am a certifiable linguaphile, though.

    I just call people out for not being able to read when I hear it pronounced incorrectly. Wanna not be called out? Learn to read.

    My housemate called it Shathrah for about 2 years before I corrected him...

    I play on EU, and I've never seen anyone say "Karasang". But then again, I don't see or hear the name mentioned that much either.

    Pretty much. I don't see how it's difficult to pronounce if you actually read the word, and I have a horrible tendency to transpose words and letters.

    People have dyslexia to verying degrees, and this being a word they have never seen before, it would be easy to jumble the letters up.

    For fuck sake some people seem like they were home schooled, and have no idea that other people can have mental or physical problems.
