I agree with most of you

Back on Graal 1.38 i did a poll about this, and surprisingly, the majority of answers were the opposite /grail/. I do pronounce it /grawl/. Just look at the words aardvark. But then again, yes Baal is pronounced /bail/. I guess you can say it however you want, but the thing to remember is that it is indeed German (I'm German...but not quite as much as Stefan), in which it is pronounced /grawl/.

I say it like Fai, Valder and Thak2: GRAHL.

It probably is supposed to be said like Grail, but that's the way I've been saying it since I started.

If you ever played the playstation version, they had this stiory section (d1 that is) and it read the story aloud. The dude said "bail" so i guess thats it
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. I have that version (level 60 character y0!) and Diablo 2, and it says the same thing on the latter. But, since he's gonna be the main star in the next in the series, I'm guessing we'll have even more people mispronouncing a popular game's name (DIEablo, anyone?).

GRAWL!

If you say it "Grail" then he would have named it "Grail"

The name Graal was introduced by unixmad,
it is the French (and old latin) form of Grail
And we pronounce it like Bart, Art, Carl,
(I also pronounce both a's in gralat like this :-)
