SOTR typos, continuity and other mistakes

Hello all, 

Please collect typos and mistakes about SOTR in this thread instead of PMs on Discord! Please note that reporting something here doesn't necessarily mean the change will be made, as the comment may be about style preference.

What to post here:
  1. Typos
  2. Grammar errors (please note that it's possible that it might be a difference in style preference)
  3. Translation errors
  4. Continuity errors (I'll try to fix them if they don't deviate from the RAWs too much)

What NOT to post here:
  1. Inconsistencies in capitalization. I changed my mind about several things halfway through, they will be fixed before publication
  2. Questions about the story
  3. Questions about spoilers
  4. Comments about the story

Above all, please be polite when posting. Please deliver criticism in the manner you'd like to receive it. :)  This thread has been heavily inspired from DB's. :D

    [7:12 PM] Nidelor: SOTR Chapter 240
    “Old man Fei, so you’ve a conscience after all. Alright, I have a matter here that you can actually help with as a senior executive of the Precious Tree Sect.”

    as an example:
    He could have a flashlight. -> He could've a flashlight. 
    He could have brought a flashlight. -> He could've brought a flashlight.
    The contraction in the top is wrong, but the bottom one is right.


    Hence, either of: "You have a consc..." or "You've got a consc..." would be fine.
    However, "You've a consc..." is improper and "You have got a consc..." sounds terrible

    The head of the Sacred Elephant family, Xiang Wentian is described as being at the ninth Sage level in chapter 534, but the seventh Sage level in chapter 556. (Chapter 643 makes it clear that it's really ninth level.)

    I realize I sound like the nerd character in the Simpsons who complains about a cartoon xylophone, but it's what I'm here for.

    “Old man Fei, so you’ve a conscience after all. Alright, I have a matter here that you can actually help with as a senior executive of the Precious Tree Sect.”
    I believe American style guides suggest against "You've a conscience" but British guides would not. Being in quotes, it's hard to take issue with it, though, as some people will say "you've" in this context out loud. I can accept that these spoken contractions could vary regionally, and may seem stranger to some readers than to others.

  •   It wasn’t just a typical level of difficulty to try to survive in the interior of Mt. Rippling Mirage alone for thirty years, not to mention that it was evident that Elder Chen had gone off in pursuit of Jiang Chen. ---->three thousand years,because it's a three thousand year cycle
  • Chapter 599: Elder Xiang Gan of the Sacred Sword Palace was domineering
    Should probably be changed to: Elder Xiang Gan of the Great Cathedral was domineering

    That is, unless it's supposed to say "he was domineering against the Sacred Sword Palace" or something. It repeats "Elder Xiang Gan of the Great Cathedral had done this?" in the next paragraph.

    It was said that one tree did not a forest make, nor that only a single star of the show be a good thing.
    Did not a forest make -> did not make a forest or is it some kind of poetic ?


    SOTR Chapter 262 – Wuxiaworld
    “It’s was a pity and regretful as well. After losing that bet, this old man left in anger, leaving the sixteen kingdom alliance and traveling throughout the world. It was only after leaving the sixteen kingdoms that I found out how much I was a frog at the bottom of a well. But after running to resistance everywhere I turned, I returned to the Skylaurel Kingdom, training diligently behind closed doors before finally obtaining my title of spirit king today.”
    It's was a pity -> it was a pity
  • “Perhaps the potential of this body is far below than that of an inane constitution, but through my efforts and my abilities in changing my destiny, I trust that I will walk a further path than those with so-called innate constitutions! So what of a constitution? Potential determines only the height of one’s starting point, but doesn’t determine how far one will be able to go!”

    “It’s him! Jiang Chen! He was the secular genius alright!” Precious Tree Sect head Jie Tianshu was standing behind forefather Thousandleaf as he exclaimed with surprise and delight.

    The he heard that Jiang Chen had soared to the top with astounding moves during the selection, he’d felt that it was both to be expected and a bit shocking. After all, it was simply too stunning that Jiang Chen had killed Long Juxue, someone who had an innate constitution.

    “Gaoqi, if you don’t have this kind of mental preparation, you should refrain from adventuring outside that often in the future. This kind of experience isn’t suitable for you.” Jiang Chen sighed lightly and looked ahead. “Let’s go.” He’d already arrived at the rock curtain by the time his words had rung in My Gaoqi’s ears. He stood above the the herb, only plucking it after careful consideration and coming to the conclusion that nothing was untoward.

    A character is introduced as "Weizi Kuai", but then the name is spelled "Wei Zikua" later in the chapter. Not sure which spelling you'd prefer to use going forward, but with a quick search, I see that Weizi Kuai is used 3 times, and Wei Zikua is used 7 times.
