  • Typos in Dragonmaw (common sword for Dragon Knight)

    The description text for Dragonmaw is:

    Dragonmaw is mighty even among the Named Swords. It's jagged teeth rip at even the strongest hides, laying bear the vulnerable flesh beneath.
    The issues are in red:
    • among: This is stylistic, actually, but in this particular sort of writing, "amongst" might be a better choice, given the theme.
    • It's: As this is the possessive form, it should lack an apostrophe. That is, it should be "its".
    • bear: While a laying bear is indeed a sight to behold, I believe the intention here was to "lay bare", that is, to reveal "the vulnerable flesh beneath" without any sort of armor or protection.

      Good catch, I don't know how I missed that one.
      I shall add it to my comprehensive list of typos and grammar errors here:

      P.S.
      "Among" is perfectly fine, I don't think "amongst" would make a big difference.

        Shouldn't it be "laying"?

          Isn't that what it says?

            I meant OP's post, not what it says in Dota.

              I know what you meant. It says "to lay" instead of "laying" but that doesn't
              matter at all because the word in question is "bear" vs "bare", not "laying" vs "to lay".
              The context of the sentence also requires the form "to lay", not "laying".
              Try not to be so literal as to miss the entire point of the topic.
