    Minor issue with all Dominion Sergants

    For all of the NPCs that hand out Dominion Ops, there is one minor issue.

    The option to do nothing is labeled "About turn and leave."

    Shouldn't it be "about face" ? The dialogue with these NPCs has some military flavor applied to it; "About face" is a phrase meaning to turn around. So this could be a mistake, though I'm not 100% certain.

    The British Military uses the command "About Turn".

    Thanks for the post, Alhanelem.

    As Babekeke kindly explained, "about turn" is a (primarily) British English variant of "about face."

    Though FFXI dialogue is primarily written in American English, expressions like this are occasionally employed for characterization and flavor (flavour)?
