    Do you feel any races need to have their voices re-done?

    Personally, I really feel that the Draenei east-european accent does not fit them at ALL.
    I feel the Orcs could get a bit more savage-y, too, and the blood elves could have their voices fit their technical but ruthless antics too.

    Anyone else? Just me? :l

    I'd like to have a much wider variety to cycle through with all the attack and reaction sounds (and /silly, of course) but the accents are kind of set in stone.

    Except for Tyrande's, of course, who now sounds like a made-for-tv African queen similar to Aggra.

    Female humans need their voice re done. They sound more like a teenage girl rather than an adult female. I would prefer a deeper voice with less annoying ass shrieks every time they get hit.

    Tauren voices are awesome, but a Micheal Dorn set would be epic.

    It's the same voice actor they used in WC3.

    Worgen females anyone? The chain smoker voice still is kinda irksome.

    Like Sandrox said, it doesn't change the fact that her perception of the character has changed and her voice sounds much more awkward compared to her performance in Warcraft III. Either she needs to practice to get that pitch voice again, or they need to find another actress to fill the role more accurately to previous portrayals.

    Male human, it's cheesy. It works well with the ridiculous model and animations they have right now but after the update it won't fit anymore.
    Other than that, male draenei, female worgen, they're just bad.

    Replayed warcraft 3 recently, the retarded accent is still there.

    She has an accent yes, but its not nearly as pronounced. She sounds more like a Troll than a Night Elf in wow.

    Sounds exactly the same, other than Tyrande sounding older now.

    any particular race I can think of sounds decent to me, I think they should update the Troll male voice with some more Steve Blum though….

    Yeah, because changing an accent after 6 years makes sense?

    No, voices should stay exactly as they are now. No new actors, no new accents. Not even new /silly clips because we know if there's 1 new silly with modern microphones, they'll want every sound re-done.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    There is a particular Forsaken voice that is on npcs that I wish I could have as one. I feel like Blizzard should record a few different voices for races and let people choose. It would add to the customization.

    Definitely the female Worgen voice. It is Marge Simpson's voice or like Lothaeryn in this forum said, a chain smoker lol.

    There are two beings that need their voices redone

    1: Tyrande
    2: The Worgen

    Everyone else is fine.

    Worgen both male and female by British voice actors with real accents. Hmmm Turpster would make a good male worgen.

    Tyrande is a definite one.

    an updated orc male voice that doesn't sound like WC peon would be a good choice.
