Not on word alone. Trust me, in the entire 3-4 years I've been sitting here in front of this poor excuse for an MMORPG, I have realised two things, 1) no matter how lame it is people will always play it due to it's addictive nature and the fact that it targets 12 year olds who seem to have no trouble time and time again getting thier parents to pay the fee at least once. 2) Nothing anyone, players or staff, related to graal ever says is 100% truth and none of them are to be trusted as far as you can throw them.

On topic:
I know it's pronounced as Grahl, but I have been saying it as Grail ever since I first joined. Everytime I think/say Grahl in reference to Graal, it just doesn't feel right.

Heh, nice question. I pronounce it Grahl.

On another note...how do you guys pronounce "GK"? For some weird reason, inside my head i always think of it as "gee-kay", but if i say it, which i rarely do, its "jee-kay". XD

I still to this day don't believe it, I'm leaning towards Benjamin, but they continue to argue otherwise, until then, I will be known as Frolic.

I've always pronounced it Grahl. Even with the grails, I just couldn't bring myself to pronounce it against it's spelling.

Raelyn - I wouldn't trust on word alone if he said "The sky is blue."

..Actually, the sky isn't blue. The blue appearance comes from the reflection off of the ocean/water.

But seriously, we should get back on topic.

I occasionaly speak to players and staff on the phone, and I have always said "Grail" such as Gray-l I suppose? Such as the "Holy Grail" I guess it would be. I have heard some say "Grawl" and it just sounds stupid and annoying. Perhaps I will remember to ask Stefan what it should be

Correct pronouncation would be Gr - aaaah - l. Grail is the English word for it, Graal the Dutch/German, Greal the Latin/French word. San Greal = Holy Grail.
