I have a wholly unrelated question. When I first saw the Worgen before Cata hit I was super excited, I refrained from leveling my long desired priest, just so she could be an awesome wolf lady. I do enjoy the worgen and overall I think she looks very cool but her voice! Please someone tell me its not just me! The NPC worgen women do not sound like that! Even when they are in their worgen form. /lol makes me cringe so much so that i refrain from emoting at all with her (which if you knew me you would know is hard for me). Add this to the irritating sniff sniff and I'm considering race changing to a nelf. I really don't want to do this though, and I realize many people are going to think this is a petty complaint but I play for the fun experience of the game and the atmosphere and wow does her voice really grate on me. Are the devs working on a way to fix this?

Yeah, the female worgen's voice in both forms are just aweful. Kind of sad really.

I hate the voice of my female tauren. And this is another case where the tauren female NPCs sound great, but the the player character sounds awful. However, over time I've gotten used to it to the point where I can mostly ignore it. I'm sure if you stick with your worgen lady for a few more months, you'll get to that point too. :)I will say though that I will NEVER use a voice emote on her if I can avoid it. Even if I want her to laugh, I'll just type /e laughs. instead of /laugh. It would be nice if the devs would offer different voice sets, but I just can't see it happening.

I believe there is an add-on that gets rid of the sniffing noise if it bothers you.

I feel the same about my worgen druid. I waited to make a druid for cata. The same major complains: Sniffing, voices/laugh, dances, and running wild. Sure they are cosmetic but when you think of it, you are only fighting things maybe 50% of the time. Sure you could go back to human form but I for one did not roll a worgen so I could be in human form :) So yeah the novelty has worn off, the starting experience is excellent. If yours is not so high lvl you could always delete it and re-roll...

I normally like to have my helmet displayed on my characters, but with worgen, I can't because any helmet they wear, just looks completely ridiculous, because of the mane. Apparently hair is stronger than plate. Granted, I understand why they do that, but on my worgen, she'll never have a visible helmet again.

I would love to see a choice of voices in player characters, and it wouldn't be all that difficult either. Blizzard already has a handful of different voice actors repeating the same lines for each type of NPC, just call them back in to have them each do a read-through of the PC lines, add the option to the barber shop ("New special! Trim and vocal chord surgery combo deal!") and bam, now players have a bit more personalization for their characters.

I wish we could use the NPC voices. When the female Worgen voices were first found, they sounded great. Then they turned out to be NPC voices.
