Xuan is the bookie with the facial scar in Shenmue 3. In this Shenmue 3 Xuan guide, we are going to walk you through where you can find Xuan and how you can beat him.

Where To Find Xuan, The Bookie With The Facial Scar In Shenmue 3

In order to find Xuan, the bookie with the facial scar in Shenmue 3, you need to head back to the village. You will find the games on the left side and this is where you will find Xuan Shancun. In order to get the information that you need you must defeat him in battle.

How To Beat  Xuan

It is possible to defeat him in the first go but it is safer to prepare for the battle first. The easiest way to deal with him is to buy Snake Power from the Toa-Get store. This will restore your health in battle. Keep in mind that this item is not cheap and will cost you 270 yuan. If this is out of your budget then you could do some wood chopping at the store.

You could train to increase your strength which happens to be what the game recommends you to do. This takes a bit longer but it will help you through the game. In order to train, you will need to head over to the martial hall. This will allow you to spar. Sparing increases your attack power and will level up your moves. Using wooden dummies will increase your endurance.

You should increase both and get your kung fu to level 2 before taking on Xuan, the bookie with the facial scar in Shenmue 3. Before taking him on make sure that your stamina is maxed out. You are going to need it during the battle. The most effective way of doing that is by eating black garlic. Tao’s store is the cheapest place to get this item.

Now that you have done all this, you can head over to Xuan and battle him. Use your training or the Snake Power when you are low on health. Make sure to block incoming attacks. Land a few hits when he is knocked out and is trying to get back up. He will not be able to attack you when he is getting up or is knocked out.
