One of the August Celestials, Xuen is the tiger of the North.
The August Celestials are a reference to the four guardians of the compass directions in Chinese mythology: the dragon in the East, the bird in the South, the tiger in the West, and the turtle in the North.
It doesn't match up
the same with the myth, since in WoW the tiger is in the North and instead of a turtle there's a Western yak. But still, it's obviously meant to be a reference.
Oh hey, it's Tyreal.
"Show me your strength."
"You must have the mastery to move where you choose to move and the wit to move before your opponent."
"Strength is more than how hard you hit; your strikes must have control and purpose."
"You can also just go for the groin."
"Why are you clicking on me so much?"
If Xuen ever becomes a raid boss, be sure to wear a cup.
Sorry to you, hunters, but you can't tame him even when he's looking like a spirit beast ;)
Well, at least there is the hope Blizzard will introduce some tameable rarmobs with his appearance like they did in Northrend.
I did not find Xuen inside the largest temple as shown on the map above, but, rather, just inside the gates to the temple complex, approx. 1/2 inch S/SW of the "T" in Temple on the map. In case you didn't happen to catch the pic above, he is a giant ghost wolf, not a panda or such.
He sounds like James Earl Jones
I was hoping (before mop was released) that he would be a new spirit beast for BM hunters.
Yeah pretty sure It is James Earl Jones? (Mufasa from the Lion King) lol :)
For what it's worth, the Chinese name is 雪怒 (xuě nù), the two characters meaning snow and fury. Whether this was the original intended name or just something the Chinese translators came up with is not entirely clear, though it is worth noting that this is one of the few names that's consistent between the Simplified and Traditional Chinese versions of the game, which suggests that it may have been the original intended name.
Hunters everywhere are crying, why can't there be a spirit beast?
Do you think Xuen is the August Celestial of Justice? And then at the end of the expansion becomes the August Celestial of Wisdom?
I was wondering how his name would be pronounced? Is it a little like "jun" (where the j is like je in French)? And this was voted down why....?
After finishing dailies there today, i heard a mad cackling laugh in what sounded like Xuen's voice. Could it have been an effect from
Mad Brewer's Breakfast
, or something else? Wondering if anyone else has heard this...
Xuen the White tiger is one of the all powerful celestials
