Maybe this is just me being picky but an American English spelling of Defence would be "Defense"

First Ankama intervention

Hey there, 

Thank you for spotting and reporting this!  You have a keen eye, but the translation standard for DOFUS is still British English, so this is not an actual mistake.

What?  I grew up in the U.S. and have never spelled "defense" as "defence."  Furthermore, no online source that I can find states what you have.  

https://www.spellcheckonline.com/defense-vs-defence/

Just a few sources I found.  

I also realize the English community can be both U.S. and Great Britain so I suppose I can let it slide.

HarvestPale said back in 2010 that they default to British spellings, because at the time both the translators were British.  She hasn't worked there in a while, but most translators who have worked for Ankama over the years have been British rather than American (though there was at least one American in the bunch), so that's still the standard they use.

I'm not sure who the translators are now.  I haven't seen any of them post for a while.
