More voice options, eventually?

I understand this isn't really a big deal, and it could be quite some time before we see anything like this, which I'm entirely fine with!  There are certainly more pressing things to work on.  However, since the game has been out for a year now in KR and they still have (to my knowledge) just one voice, I figured I might as well suggest it be considered.

Currently, we have slots available for multiple voices, but only one option:

When we could, in the future, have multiple:

(photoshop edit)

Because of a complete lack of spoken dialogue on the player character's part, I imagine this wouldn't be too hard to do.  Hiring a voice actor to make a couple dozen sounds has got to be a lot cheaper than asking for tons of lines of dialogue.  I think of FFXIV (I've never played it, but did mess around with the character creation) and was impressed with how they have multiple voice options:

We obviously don't need that many, but still, some variety would be nice in the future!  Just something to consider, I guess.

Lel, that FF Character sometimes sounds like a gurl taking a dump while watching one of Dunald Trumpumpumps speeches while getting tickled  :D

I was thinking the same thing!

 

They already have more then one voice option, they are just class locked. The tamer sounds different then a Sorceress for example and a Giant sounds different from a wizard.

 

Sadly They just LOVE class/race/gender locking EVERYTHING in this game. it is a real shame on many levels.

Yes FF had a lot of options, and any race could use any voice too. 

 

Lets hope since there does seem to be room for more voice options it is something they are planning. ^_^

Bumping this just 'cause the topic of voice acting came up in the latest diary!

This has always really bothered me, given the extent we can customize the character. Fortunately, the character doesn't speak, or have any lines for their emotes that make the lacking variety noticeable. Which brings me to an addition for the suggestion...voice the emotes a bit better. A great example of where this falls through is whenever the males laugh. They go through this entire action looking like something is genuinely amusing, clapping their hands and such......then all you get is, "Ha." It sounds more like they accidentally made a noise than laughed, the sound is so alien and short.

Definitely upvoting! More voices makes it more unique and allows you to get closer to the character that your envisioning! Compared to all the other character customization options the voice was the one area I felt a little let down at. Adjusting the single option made your voice often sound robotic and that upset me a little :c

Would be very nice! There are different face presets so why not different voices? Doesn't have to be >10 but I'd appreciate a small variety.

I've still been thinking on this a lot, and feel it's something that would definitely be great to have!  I know it's an ancient thread and it's necro-ing, but I felt there's no need to make a new thread when I have one existing already.
