    Lei Shen & Lei Shi

    Two races. Two completely different npcs. Two different letters.

    Surely this has confused others besides myself?

    No, not at all. I don't see how.

    When Lei Shen was first announced as the main antagonist of 5.2 I thought to myself "Isn't that that one boss from Terrace of Endless Spring?"

    I will admit that the two names are pretty similar.

    Easy. I don't even play anymore and I know the difference. One posts on the forums

    Whatever kind of joke that was, I don't know. Was worth it.

    It tripped me up for a moment when I was checking the ToES journal. But they are in no way related.

    You're right! I better tell other fantasy villains, such as Sauron and Saruman, not to have similar names in the future.

    I think SHEN sound more badass, while SHI sounds girly( "she", duh?). You haven't played Mortal Kombat, have you?

    I easily know the difference between them but the similarity of the names did occur to me as something unideal. I'm not sure why Blizzard didn't tweak the names a little bit to exaggerate the difference. Something as minor as making Lei Shi into Mei Shi would have made an enormous impact on any confusion or misreads.

    I'm sure asians probably think "James" and "Jamie" are the same name too.


    Just translation differences.

    My RL called Lei Shen "Lei Shi" at least twice last night

    That's the reason you don't name raid bosses as James and Jamie.
