it triggers my OCD


No it doesn't because you most likely don't actually have OCD (and if you actually do, I'm sorry and that sucks)
Check your classic World of Warcraft manuals to see how it is spelled, I just did.

It is Kul Tiras.

Do you not know what a period is?
When I first saw this I was thinking it was Kirin'var village.

The memories.

Poor snowflake. Upset that blizzard themselves sometimes use Kul'Tiras.

Facts don't care about your feelings.

Kul'Tiras.
Right! I'll do you for that!


Whoa whoa whoa. I didn’t know this was that type of party... I’m very expensive. You can’t afford me if I spell the unmentionable word.

On-topic: consistency is... not a strong suit of Blizzards.

No.
You're an angry elf.

And Outland.
Kul'tiras sounds cool, exotic even. Leave my seafaring conquistadors alone.

Look it's all very simple just stop using the apostrophe and nobody gets hurt. It's not used in game. It's not used on Wowhead. Wiki sites don't count.
to be fair, when it comes to names

blizzard has some kind of apostrophe fetish

One of the things that's been triggering me lately are people who, on their 1st post, begin their statement with "I mean".

They're explaining themselves and yet they haven't said anything yet. It was funny at first but now, I see so many doing it that it's become aggravating.


'i mean' is being used as a discourse marker in those contexts

it does not have a literal meaning

but instead performs a conversational function
To expound on inconsistencies: Elisande (a NE originally from the same city as Tyrande) is pronounce El-I-sond. Tyrande is Ter-on-duh (which bothers me significantly, on a personal level). Archimonde, although a demon, also follows a different pronunction convention... Tyr also follows a different pronunciation convention (although the last two could be explained by differing races, but their names are all, originally, English...).
