MAKE IT STOP, SHES BUTCHERING TYRANDE!


Oh it can't really be that ba-- AAAAHHHHHHHHH

OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS SACRED, MAKE IT STOP! PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!

I-is... is she trying to make her sound... Asian? There is defiantly a heavy eastern accent of some kind in there...

I'm going to be as brutally honest as I can... this is terrible. If this is what they can pass off as 'voice acting' WoW will have to be played on mute.

(Stolen from the video's comments:)

llidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Save me, Illidan! Save me! Illidan! No, fight it, Illidan! Don't do it! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! I love you, Illidan. I will give you your family, Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! Illidan! What is in that vial, ILLIDAN?! ILLLLLIIIIIIDAAAAAAAAAAAN?!

I just have to laugh. Who rubber-stamped this? Metzen?

Chris. Please. Don't do this. Warcraft 3 laid an excellent groundwork for some things. They need to remain sacrosanct, inviolate. This is not something that should be changed or 'improved.'

Need I remind you that Lucas continues to 'improve' Star Wars. Yeah.

Wrong. It's GO'EL GO'EL GO'EL

Or GO'EL ILLIDAN GO'EL ILLIDAN GO'EL GO'EL GO'EL ILLIDAN GO'EL, etc. Someone should actually remix this. Get Mr. Voletron in here. Maybe add some dubstep.

I really don't care if that is the "original" voice actor of Tyrande, she sounds absolutely terrible.

My reaction when I heard her new voice, O.O.

That honestly CAN'T be the same person, bloody hell.

Wha, why did they give her an Indian accent?

I've never heard a night elf with that kind of accent, someone shouldn't get a pay raise this year.

At least there's some consistency.

In Warcraft III, it seemed like the actress couldn't decide what exotic accent Tyrande was going to have, so she just kind of used all of them, sometimes.

WOW is starting to suffer from Oblivion-itis. You cannot recycle the same voice actor for every single line of dialog.

It's painfully obvious that it's the same voice as Aggra, and even if it is the same person that did Tyrande in WC3, it seems like she's forgotten how to get into the groove of that voice or even get it to distinguish properly.

Oh god...

I don't really like Aggra all that much, but I could just grit my teeth and deal with her obnoxious voice because at least she was the only one who sounded that annoying and retarded.


This new voice sounds NOTHING like I've ever heard any other Night Elf talk like in this game. Nothing. The accent is awful and all I can hear is Aggra.

I swear, it seems Aggra got a Faction Change and someone pushed Tyrande off the top of Teldrassil.

That is the only thing I could possibly justify having this voice for.

Ugh.. I could voice a better Tyrande. And I tend to sound like the little chibi girls in anime. xD

The old voice was classical and had a dark, feline quality to it. The new style is heavy and clunky. It would work for a dragon aspect, not for the priestess of the moon. I'd be curious to know why the designers chose to go this way.

Wow this is bad (and I like Aggra's voice acting).

Metzen himself could have done a better Tyrande.

It's a VOICE CHANGE. Get over it! In six months you won't even care.


Still disappointed in Sylvanas' voice. It's been, what, years now? Every time I hear Sylvanas talk I just go "Her voice could've been so much better :( "


This really needs fixed. It's just as important as any model change that Azshara needed.

Ha. I thought it was just me... hell I STILL hear Illidan in BT RP gear runs and go "Why does he sound like a B-movie vampire/snake -_-"

Just to clarify, I've gotten confirmation that the actor being used for Tyrande is the same as was used in WarCraft III (and since). It's also important to note that context for how she sounds is key (or the perception thereof) in relation to the various situations she's in and worth keeping in mind as well.

That said, we are always open to feedback provided that it is kept constructive.

"Tyrande the Troll" Story Forums There is lot of constructive discussion within that thread to tap into.

Tyrande's WC:3 voice - Note the steadiness and lack of accent.

Azshara's Voice for Well of Eternity

Not only does Tyrande sound different from herself, she sounds old and outlandish compared to Azshara. As many have pointed out, she dangerously overlaps Aggra and Troll accents as well.

Thoughts:
We know creative development has listened, with the rectifying of Azshara's appropriate eye/hair colors.

Many of us just want to see Tyrande get the reemergence she deserves. She was an enchanting and empowered character from WC:3, many of us want to convey that to new audiences who've not yet been properly introduced.

The potential down the line for fandom is unlimited, if done properly.

((Sorry for tailing you on the forums today little Candle, I don't mean to startle! ))

Less troll, more night elf/wc3.
