    Only other word I could find similar was Oceanium (like a large Aquarium). Ohshun-ee-um

    So my guess is it should be either Elshun-ee-um or Luhshun-ee-um.

    Lol good luck, EQ players still can't agree on how to pronounce Luclin

    also Le-Sin-ium *shrug* fantasy names are never pronounceable regardless of the game/book/whatever lol try properly saying half the stuff from the Wheel of Time series

    That one is simple. It's just like Cow or How, but Sow.

    People that say it like Sew are wrong.

    This is correct as per Devs. I remember watching the new expansion livestream and hearing it. Around 10:34. Although without rewatching the whole thing I feel like the Devs also got into a chat about how to pronounce it.

    I think it's a pretty obvious reference to the word "lyceum" from the Greek given all the Classical references in Combine zones, so "Ly-Sea-Nee-Um" makes sense to me.

    I believe it was pronounced "dead on arrival".

    No. It's sow. Like row. Or tow. Or bow like bow and arrow. Or low. Or mow...or....
