    I pronounce Xuen kinda like shoo-en, cause a friend named Xin is "Shin", I don't know if that's mandarin or cantonese though cause I'm pig ignorant. Everyone seems to pronounce the X's as Z's, they might be right. Either way he would get mad if I start calling him Zin.

    Trying to remember if it's "Justice-E-er" as well. Went by really fast. I know it was something with "Justice" in it...

    In English it should be pronounced "JUST-i-KAR". Well, you could shift the emphasis around the word depending on your accent but the "c" is definitely hard.

    If you wanted an authentic Latin pronunciation it'd be something like "YOOST-i-Kar" I think.

    Not really. Quilen is the English form of a Chinese word so it uses that weird Chinese-to-English transliteration where "q" stands for "ch" or something. Justicar on the other hand is a regular word of Latin origin.

    Although I'm not sure what a "justicar" actually is, "justiciar" is an antiquated word for a political office but it seems the scifi/fantasy crowd has appropriated the word, slightly misspelled "justicar". Kind of like how we got "paladin" from the Latin "palatinus" (high ranking official in the Roman Empire, later a high ranking knight/member of the nobility in medieval courts).

    English uses that sound (eg, "cruel", "frugal"), and until relatively recently did use diacritical marks, however since the advent of typing they've fallen into disuse. In English the umlaut is actually called a dieresis, but funnily enough the English dieresis is so rare now that native English speakers are more familiar with umlauts (via names of heavy metal bands).

    Didn't Blizz state it's officially pronounced "School-o-mance"? So you're all wrong...
    If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.
