    Maiev - Melee Assassin - Warcraft Hero



    Background

    Maiev Shadowsong is a night elf Warden and former Priestess of the Moon. Maiev grew up in the ancient Kaldorei Empire and eventually joined the esteemed Sisterhood of Elune, rising through its ranks to become a senior priestess. During the infamous War of the Ancients, Maiev, played a major role in the fight against the Burning Legion, as part of the Kaldorei Resistance.

    Shortly after the war's conclusion and the Resistance's victory, one of the night elves' most powerful champions, Illidan Stormrage, was arrested and put on trial for attempting to create a second Well of Eternity, ultimately being imprisoned deep underground. Maiev personally volunteered to act the Betrayer's jailer, and took up the mantle of leader of the newly-formed Watchers, whose duty it was to guard the subterranean prison.

    Hope they don't use her Legion voice, but there's no way they won't. Not a fan of 70 year old smoker's voice, sorry.

    I'm overwhelmed with "meh."

    Warcraft is the only game I've played, and Assassins are my favorite class... but even I'm getting tired of the same old shit. The more Assassins they put out, the more I have to see Zeebo and Sylvanas in every single game.

    Maiev isn't even cool. Her "PURRRRGE THE WICKED!!" character is hackneyed and dull, while her ridiculous weapons strain every inch of credulity I have. So dumb.

    Debi Mae West is 53 years old and not a smoker. I'm sure she will voice Maiev again.

    good to put those who said "it will be malganis, it was leaked by the guy who got all the rest right" when really no, it was "leaked" by someone else.

    She had recently recovered from throat cancer or something when she did Legion, so it's not "smoker's voice", it's "recovering from severe fucking illness" voice.

    Maiev is a warden and going after the wicked is her shtick for awhile. Yeah her weapon looks different but it's a Warden weapon so no it's not dumb. You sound too bitter.

    She's also a voice actress, who can pull it off if need be. Which she has in Legion.

    That sucks, but no reason to completely ruin a character's voice. Just get a different voice actress.

    not paying attention and have poor taste.

    shes one of the best examples of an anti-villain you ever see. I loved her in the Illidan novel because the first person (or 3rd person omnicient?) perspective gave us a chance to see how angry and obsessed we were but when she was still grounded enough to stay politically correct*

    *the REAL definition of political correctness ("i think we should murder the innocent but thats political suicide so i'll merely suggest we Deport them) not the racist version of political correctness (Not being racist, not being sexist, not being homophobic)
    Its a bit nutty seeing someone literally replying to every post in a topic obsessed with belittle everyone for not thinking warcraft is crap, call OTHER people Addicts and fanboys. Lol You're addicted to hate and being your own fanboy, ya nutter butter

    i think maiev in legion sounds very similar to how she sounded in the warcraft games. a little more harsh, but she's fucking crazy so it fits.

    anyway, i'm not impressed. would prefer some more legion members.

    I'm not saying it's not logical, or that she shoudn't sound like that for lore reasons. I'm saying I don't like it, and I wish they didn't make her sound so bad. Not sure why half this thread is people white knighting like I said that I'm happy the voice actress had cancer or something. It's okay to not like things!

    I love how people are discussing how/who will be voice actor/acting.

    Do we know her role? What set of abilities/playstyle she will bring to the game.

    I mean she has been out there in WC3 universe for so long. And her character has recieved some develepment in early days! Now her wc3 abilities are taken by Zeratul. Would be interesting to see her in new style.


    P.S. Her weapon isnt wierd. Its umbra cresent ! And one of the most unique type you will see. In ANY game!
    War is deception, a game played best from the shadows!
