    And how do you pronounce 'Chi', the monk resource? Is it "Tchee" or "Ki"?
    Idk why I brought that up, maybe because it's funny to read people arguing about it.

    I pronounce it Ksu-when
    If World of Warcraft has taught me anything, it's that teaching a crowd something is far harder than teaching individuals.

    My portuguese mind tries to read it as shu-en, but knowing it is a chinese inspired name, it's probably ju-en or su-en.

    Your mind is pronouncing it right.

    Xuen = shoo-en. Suen = soo-en.
    3 hints to surviving MMO-C forums:
    1.) If you have an opinion, someone will say that it is wrong
    2.) If you have a source, there will be people who refuse to believe it
    3.) If you use logic, it will be largely ignored
    btw: Spires of Arak = Arakkoa.

    I thought I'd even heard it in game as zoo-en, though shoo-en is also a contender. Personally I've always pronounced it zoo-en, but my knowledge of Chinese-English syllables and pronunciations is terrible. Personally I feel like zoo-en sounds a lot more badass and warrior-like than shoo-en, but whatever works.

    No chance it would be pronounced 'en' at the end with a 'u' in front.

    Like I said. tzU-yuN or syu-yun.

    Suu-En

    Pinyin is still the gold standard for english transliteration of chinese, even though it's not exactly the most intuitive transliteration method and there are better ones out there.

    Shwin is how I say it. Don't know if it's correct, but I don't think it's zoo-in.
