because of the spoke guard you can only use a 36H rim.

using a 36H rim the spokes are supposed to cross each other in 3 spots hence the 3x

Because the spokes are set into the cutout groves in the flanges it has to be laced a specific way.

Thanks, so if I got this hub and a different 36h rear hub, would the lace patterns be completely different? Would it look stupid?

Nope. Lace them both 3x. And it will look fine. 3x=3 cross. Don't worry, nothing is wrong.
