Voice acting is becoming increasingly common in mmorpgs today. MMO-Play looks at the pros and cons of voice acting in mmos.
It actually takes away from an MMO for me too. I didn't mind the average, hello, goodbye, joke, annoyed from clicking... But each time I hear Lor'themar's voice I... get goosebumps. The voice actor can't help it, he's actually quite good, but the lines they give him are just....well... rubbing me wrong. It takes immersion away from it, partly because even if the text is wrong, you can imagine yourself in your head how it would sound. That said I can see why people like it as well.
