    Dark Ranger sounds quite robotic...I knew it had to be some kind of control!

    Grumbol Grimhammer sounds a lot like Dwalin from the Hobbit movies.

    Yes for some reason Michael McConnohie is no longer voicing The Lich King. I wonder why. Might be story related.

    I don't see why it would be, considering he isn't Arthas anymore. Granted his voice should have changed when he became Lich King, but not that big a deal.

    You do know that Michael McConnohie played Bolvar in Legion, right?

    I'm referring to him responding to the other poster.

    I was making a point that it's obviously not that actor whom played him in Wrath because the actor is whomever plays Bolvar/somebody else, and as far as I know it's not the same actor from what I see on his wikipedia page.Unless I'm getting confused about something. =/

    Did he? He's not credited for it, at least on the Wikipedia page:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_McConnohie

    I was assuming he was talking about the WotLK version, since that was what he was credited for. It would seem maybe somebody didn't update the wikipedia page perhaps? :P

    The man often goes by pseudonyms. Whoever is credited for being LK Bolvar is definitely him because Arthas with the helm on sounds exactly the same as Bolvar with the helm on.

    That doesn't even matter though. Why would you assume anyone would be referring to his normal human VA? Even in Wrath (during the final moments of the ICC end cinematic), his voice changes (not through effects but an entire actor change) from his normal human one to the one he had throughout Legion.

    So - listening to Usha, there will be an attack on Boralus.

    You see the Alliance? You KILL the Alliance!
  1. Morinas's Avatar
    You guys do realise that when Arthas attacked the elves he was just only a DK, and not the Litch King, right?
  1. etheldald's Avatar
    interesting, i wonder when occurs the boralus attack, probably after the raid or has a part of the kultiran scenario.

    Yes, he's credited https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5722532/fullcredits

    Weirdly enough, the original voice actor of Bolvar during The Wrath of the Lich King, Carlos Larkin, has also worked in Battle for Azeroth, as the voice for the Bronzebeards for instance, https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0488323/ . So, although the confusion may come from Legion, it's strange the change of voice actor.
