    How do you say Xuen?

    From wowpedia - Xuen the White Tiger is one of the four creatures known as the August Celestials who watch over Pandaria. Xuen watches over the Kun-Lai Summit from the Temple of the White Tiger and is sometimes referred to as the Northern Celestial.

    Monks also get the ability to invoke him to help them and he looks badass, but... how do you say his name?

    I'd guess at "Schwen" where the 'Sch' is like the 's' in 'leisure' or or the 'g' in 'Bruges'

    I always pronounce it "zoo-en", although the X makes more of a "sh" sound in Chinese so it's probably meant to be more like "shoo-en" or "shwen".

    For some reason I instinctively pronounce him as "Hwuen"...
    But guess 'Schwuen' makes more sense

    Look up PinYin on Wikipedia if you want a pronunciation guide.

    It's not quite the same as "sh" but it's close. English doesn't use that particular sound.

    The rest of it is "ooen" - a dipthong followed by the normal 'n' sound.

    Well, the internet says that "Xuan", with an 'a', is pronounced with an "sh" sound and rhymes with "when", so I'm kinda going with "shin".

    I'd say it like this;

    "Shu-en".

    There was a serie on newgrounds that was callen Xin, and the characters always refered to the guy as "Shin". So yeah.

    We don't believe in your Horde or your Alliance. We only believe in undeath.

    Shoe/shoo/shu-en sounds best.

    "Shu-EN". The "shu" part with much less "lip-puckering", and the emphasis is on the "EN".
