And lets not forget the voice acting in dungeons. I loved the voice acting in Cata. The new dungeons are an excellent example of superb voice acting. Even the Zandalari heroics, while mind numbing in every other way, had terrific voice overs. The one exception was Hour of Twilight. Arcurion had one of the most annoying voices i've ever heard. If I hear the word Shaaamanaaaaah one more time, i'm gonna punch a kitten (which is a tad ironic, me being a feral druid and all...)On another note, I hate the people who can't be bothered with the lore. I think I'm the only one now who still chooses to watch the cutscene in the middle of Well of Eternity. The entire reason I into WoW in the first place was because of the story. If you don't care for the lore, why play the game to begin with?

By Elune's tits, every time I hear Arcturion's wheezy diatribe I die a little inside.And every WoW player I know STILL loathes Tyrande's sudden-from-absolutely-nowhere accent.Other than those two things it's been a good year for the 'voices of WoW'

Wow you mean some one else feels the same way??? ;pI feel you so much. I freaking LOVE every lil cinematic and did not think the Tolvir zone was over done at all, though if it had voice acting I never heard any :)On voice acting though one great solution is thus, have it in the cinematics almost exclusively. You cannot skip them so why not put them almost totally there and those awesome bits of Garrosh and his General arguing with Sylvanas?I also think wow desperatly needs Wrathgate quality lil movies in a BAD way. I mean just two for Cata? Every race should be given a lil Wrathgate qulity scene, Blizz must have time to do this, it can't possibly be that much a resource drain given how much people love them. I think blizz felt it was being extremly generous with giving just the two and while awesome an expansion should be given more to help in the grind and general enjoyment. The Thrall, Troll and Molten Front quests at 85 deserve one as a reward when finished for instance.At least they know we love them. I am hoping blizz will make all their unskippible scenes with some voice acting. My vision is going so it would be a relief for people like myself.Here be hoping Mists gives us more!

Yeah, Arcurion is annoying... But I always giggle at Benedictus "There is no good, no evil, no light... There is only POWAH!"And I agree, I hate Tyrande's accent. (Probably years of hearing her standard on-click voice emotes in Darnassus...) And the way they have her phrase things... "We have not much time" sounds... awkward. It makes her sound like she's not a native speaker of her own language... Although, I suppose we should be glad that Jaina doesn't constantly babble "All I ever wanted was to study," over and over again in End Time. Not that the phrase itself is poorly done or anything, but after the Battle for the Undercity, I think that phrase alone could send me on a murderous rampage.

it's funny because so many people complained about her voice acting, there was a Blue post confirming that yes, it was the same voice actor.
