    We need your help voicing all wow quests!







    Hey guys! I have always wanted to have voice acted quests, but I figured it would be very money/time consuming for blizzard to to something like this, so instead I decided to take matters into my own hands and see if I could do something about it.

    I ended up enjoying the process so much that I somehow managed to voice all 1-30 zones by myself, so i could gladly show the players what I had done and that voice acted quests were possible.

    The feedback I received was more than what i could expect, and i knew i had to seize this oppurtunity and do something about it. And so this project was created!

    I have no desire of hiring 10 or 20 professional voice actors, I want this to be a project in which all WoW players can participate, in order to give back to blizzard for being amazing to us all these years, and demonstrate that the wow community can be one of the best!

    It has also been a way of uniting the players and for them to try voice acting, which in many cases is something that they dreamed of doing but never tried/don't know where to start/shyness etc.

    I hope you have great fun with the addon, and if possible come and help us make wow a more immersive experience, we need you!

    You can try our addon here https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/voice-acted-quest and you can help us send your voice in here www.reddit.com/r/wowvaq

    Bellular had a project like this that got shut down by Blizzard.

    Bellular's project edited storylines and added new dialogue, that was the main reason it got canceled. This only plays mp3 files nothing more

    Been following this on reddit, looks awesome. May need a little 'de-essing' on some the recordings, but that's just my opinion.

    Hey man thanks for the support, glad you like it! I agree with you, some sounds are better than others, but we plan to improve as we release new zones. It's not an excuse but even though we have many people, we still need many more to submit their voices, so untill then we work we what we've got! I hope that you tried our addon and that you liked it! We are almost releasing "Redridge Mountains" and duskwood will be next, so if you wanna help you're more than welcome ! Don't forgot to share with friends and guildies and have fun!

    This is insane good, this deserves a bump.

    Blizzard is lacking with their own voicing like SWTOR did.
    Good project keep it going i referred a voice acting friend that plays wow to this thread he's gonna look in to it.

    I'm legit impressed. I've always wanted a quality addon like this but figured it would never happen given the state leveling was in and the sheer volume of quests. I immediately downloaded all the packs, revved up a new character, and commensed the listening. I was incredibly happy! There were some inconsistancies, such as Marshal Dughan in goldshires split personality, but frankly, whatever... it's a start, haha! Love it. Please continue.

    There is/was some addon that reads out quest text via some text-to-speech engine, used it a while ago and it did feel more immersive, despite being the same voice for everything.

    Hey there! We are very happy you're enjoying our addon! It's true some voices are better than others, but since this is a project made by the players, we gotta work with what we have!Please don't hesitate in submitting your voice if you so desire, and please share the project with friends and guilds, it means a lot!

    Hello there, it's true but that one use thrid party programs to make the voices work so it can't be considered a addon :P. In any case ours used real voices from many people, so it should be better i think hehe

    He also set up a patron account for it basically pulling money each month or so, in other words "charging" people to help pay for it. That is what is frowned upon. Had he done something similar to the OP I doubt there would've been an issue.

    Bit like handynotes has done it. Got it to work in the end but the CurseForge page is only downloading the latest zone addition.
    And the extra links provided on the main page, all point to that last one.

    To download all completed zones you need to look at:

    I became a WoW cynic the last year I played for various reasons, but even I can tell this is very well-done and actually fits the game/doesn't seem out of place except for the introduction/parting emotes the NPC's share.

    Excellent job.
