This proves the theory that night elves evolve from trolls.


There was no proof needed since it was already confirmed months ago in their discontinued magazine.

It makes no sense. Tyrande didn't grow up in a troll society, she grew up in a night elf society (a long time after they evolved) with Malfurion and Illidan who don't have this accent (neither do any of the other night elves), she should sound more like Azshara if anything. You don't just magically acquire accents for absolutely no reason, it doesn't work like that.

This voice is out of character (and inappropriate for the race) and it shows a lack of quality in Blizzards and the VAs work to make her sound exactly like Aggra.

I vote they hire Ellen McLain to voice many female characters.

You know what's hilarious is that Tyrande's VA is the original VA she had during WC:3. Really, it's just a matter of her VA doing the Troll voices for so long she probably forgot how the original voice for Tyrande sounded like. That or she's going for something new.

Given the voice for Azshara it's supposed to represent a difference of worlds between the two. Azshara's is all vain, refined, and elegant while Tyrande just sounds like a local peasant.

wow thats awful.

Its like theyre doing everything wrong on purpose.

Just like they ruined alexstrasza's once awesome voice.


Alexstrasza never had a good voice. If anything, the new Grandma voice she has in Cata suits her well.

What was the director telling the voice actress?

"I know it's been awhile since you've done Tyrande. Just think Aggra with slightly less testosterone."

Hire someone else... this was the same woman who voiced her during WC:3.

I'm fine with the voice actor.

However, I would prefer that she either drops the accent, or that Malfurion, Illidan and the other kaldorei have a similar accent.

Twins fighting over the girl with a sexy foreign accent. How nice.

Nono, you misunderstood.
Either change is so no-one has an out of place accent, or make it so everyone use the accent.

Unless they can explain it in the lore why Tyrande alone has a strange accent.

[silly mode on!]
Maybe she was raised by trolls after her parents were killed when she was just a baby.
Trolls found her and raised her, but a moon-shaped birthmark on her left butt-cheek and melodious whispers filled with moonlight in her head made her go and search for her own people when she was six or so.
She found the kaldorei and grew up with Malfurion and Illidan, but retained her troll accent until she was 2000-3000 years old of so.
[silly mode off!]

Was just messing. Yeah it's a bit of an odd drop for her alone to have it so I agree.

Same woman or not, she did not perform the character's voice appropriately. If she cannot do the job anymore, then someone else needs to take over.

And the quality keeps sinking, an iconic Alliance character hailing from the days of the RTS games stuck with the voice of a troll.

Just go the lazy and cheap way and take out her voice acting altogether and just let it be text, like Al'Akir the freaking Lord of Air and a raid boss was, would be far better then having to listen to that Aggra clone.
