* DescendedCreator: Blizzard's VP of Creative Development Chris Metzen voices half the game, including Ragnaros, Thrall, Nefarian and Varian Wrynn. He's done many voices for Blizzard's other games as well.



* HeyItsThatVoice: A few instances.
** Creator/CamClarke as Medivh, the Blood Elf male, Nexus Prince Shaffar and Malygos.
** [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Heavy]] voices General Husam in Lost City of the Tol'vir, and also Steelbreaker in the Iron Council encounter in Ulduar, and [[MemeticMutation is credit to council]].
** Creator/MichaelMcConnohie (AKA Warriv and The Necromancer in ''VideoGame/DiabloII'') as Uther, The Lich King, Aeonus, Commander Kolurg, and King Ymiron.
** Blizzard's VP of Creative Development Chris Metzen voices half the game, including Ragnaros, Thrall, Nefarian and Varian Wrynn. He's done many voices for Blizzard's other games as well.
** [[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies Laura Shigihara]] as the Singing Sunflower companion.
** Starting from ''Wrath of The Lich King'', Jaina has been voiced by Creator/LauraBailey.
** [[Creator/LiamOBrien Illidan Stormrage]] is [[VideoGame/{{Darksiders}} War, Horseman of the Apocalypse]].
*** He's also [[VideoGame/AsurasWrath Asura]]. Probably where he got his Rage from.
*** He must take conflicted hero advice from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Kain Highwind]]. After all, [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy they share a voice actor now]].
** Creator/JimCummings (Notable for being WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck and other Disney voices, as well as several people from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'') voices Lorewalker Cho in ''Mists of Pandaria''.
** Since patch 5.1, Lor'themar Theron has been [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Fenris]].
** Carrying over from Warcraft III, Lady Vashj is Lahral and [[PowerRangers Rita Rupulsa]], among other famous roles
** Durotan is voiced by Creator/ScottMcNeil, with some other roles like [[VideoGame/{{DawnOfWar}} Sindri]], [[{{Inuyasha}} Koga]], and [[TransformersBeastWars Rattrap]].
** Vindicator Maraad is voiced by none other than Creator/CrispinFreeman.
** Garrosh Hellscream's actor, Creator/PatrickSeitz, has done a lot of anime and video game work, including the voices of [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna]], [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Sloth]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Basilio]] and [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Keith Shadis]], which can make it a little strange to see him voicing Garrosh.
** In ''Warlords of Draenor'', Grommash Hellscream is voiced by veteran actor Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson, who is well-known for his work as badass deep-voiced antagonists such as [[WesternAnimation/{{TMNT}} General Aguila]], [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Captain Gantu]] and [[VideoGame/BaldursGate Sarevok Anchev]]. He also has a few heroes or anti-heroes on his resumé, such as [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Jace Malcolm]], [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Bulkhead]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro Terrador]], making him well-suited to voicing a complicated guy like Grom.
** Gul'dan is none other than [[Creator/TroyBaker the voice of]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow Villiers]], [[Manga/SoulEater Excalibur]] and [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Booker DeWitt]]!
** Killrog Deadeye is voiced by Creator/MatthewMercer.
** Scrollkeeper Reshad of the Arakkoa Outcasts is [[Creator/FrankWelker an evil robot in disguise!]]

*** Druids are either "Resto" "Cat" "[[BearyFunny Bear, Bare, Bere, or some other mangled half-recognizable form of "This guy is a bear]]" druids for Restoration, Feral, and Guardian or in the case of balance "Boomkins".

*** Shamans are "shammies". "Resto" is used for Restoration (same as Druids), "Ele" (pronounced as either "el-eh" or "elly") for Elemental, "Enh" for Enhancement. Enhancement is occasionally referred to as "Enchancement", sometimes as a typo (like "rouge" for rogues) and sometimes as a self-deprecating joke about the spec's survivability.

The term "blueberry" was a derogatory term used in ''Burning Crusade'' for new draenei shamans, referring to their skin tone (which of course ignored that most Darkspear trolls, a valid race for shamans from vanilla, were also usually some shade of blue).



*** Warriors are shortened to "Wars" which is almost never used for Warlocks, despite them also starting with "War". The specs, besides "Prot" for protection, are relatively simply named and just refered to as such.

The specs, besides "Prot" for protection, are relatively simply named and just refered to as such. Fury warriors are occasionally called "a rogue in plate", due to dual wielding and often being on par with rogues in the damage meters, rogues being a purely damage-oriented class in constrast to warriors which can either tank or DPS.
