Voices for Cadena, Illium, Phantom and Shade

Ok, so I just listened the voices for the classes mentioned and, honestly, I have to say great job on

the casting and execution of the lines. I'm serious, I'm really liking them. Cadena has that kinda

sarcastic, sassy voice and attitude and oozes confidence in her (and his) skills and is actually pretty

funny, I found myself laughing a few times (for both male and female, the male being more the

rough, confident type than the female version), Illium has that tone of being strong and composed

(both male and female, though I can't tell if some lines are pre or post transformation, but either

way they're still good), Phantom has that feeling of being confident as well (given his character)

and sounds like he carries himself well, while the female version feels more elegant in the way she

talks. Shade's voice, both male and female are stronger than I would have thought for the way they

look, but honestly, they aren't bad at all. By the way, I'm loving the French that both versions of

Phantom use. Though I'm not sure how accurate they are, pronunciation wise, but to me they sound

good, specifically the female. I'm sure there are more French audios, but the player only had one

voice clip in French. I didn't listen to every voice clip for the classes because I wanted to play them

and listen to them in game where I have more context for what they say, so I'm just listing my first

impressions. They really good and not like the over yelling Kaiser does (I still feel like he should

sound younger) or the dry heaving sounds of Demon Slayer/Avenger (they're good voices in and

of themselves but they need to reel in the excessive yelling, like the skill lasts 2 seconds and the

screaming lasts for 5.) I know people like playing with the voices off and I might be the only one

that actually likes the voices, but I want to hear what other people think. I think the voices sound

good and feel like Nexon actually tried this time, but others may feel different. I'm not sure if I'm

allowed to link it, but for those who want to find them, they're on Spadow's soundcloud. Although

literally the only gripe I have about them is the recycling of the Korean grunts and yells and I feel

that it was just pure laziness on Nexon's part, like they recorded full sentences of dialogue, but

couldn't do simple grunts and yells? Maybe they're just place holders or something before they

actually get released, but that was just something that mildly annoyed me. So, I just want to know

how other people feel about them whether if you like them, don't like them or what have you.

    Yeah, I'm loving the new voices too, especially Cadena's! I was hoping Shade's voice would sound gentler though, to fit his personality better.

    I'm cool with reusing the grunts from KMS, since they sound good. I'll admit though, it's slightly jarring to hear two different voice actors provide for a single character at the same time.

    The PTS was not released for this update. The OP is referring to Spadow's Soundcloud upload of the English voices. He's compiled playlists for the Cadena, Illium, Phantom, and Shade attack voices, as well as the story dialog from Cadena, Illium, and the 4th chapter in the Grand Atheneum.

    You do realize Spadow got those sound clips the same "illegit" way he got information you hotly deny, like boss entry/drop nerfs, and the lack of a Kishin fix, right?
    Maybe he just made those sound clips up. There's no "official confirmation" of them. Thread should probably be locked, if not outright deleted.

    For real, if Cadena isn't out yet, how is there English clips already?

    Seriously disappointed by the Shade voiceover. All the battle grunts are fine, since they've been taken directly from the Korean voiceover, but the lines themselves sound so out of character. It's a generic rpg warrior-barbarian voice. Shade should be soft spoken and elegant.

    Omg, I literally thought the same thing. I love Cherami Leigh and I hear her in a lot of anime and I had that thought like "wait, is that her?" even now, I still her hear when I play, but I'm still not sure if it's her. I get a more Lucy feel from her than Asuna, but I can hear both interpretations. It wouldn't be the first time Maplestory has gotten well known voice actors to voice classes. For example, Luminous' voice is Kaiji Tang, who voices Tsumugu from Kill la Kill and Guts from Berserk. Mercedes' voice is Cristina Vee, who voices Hawk from Seven Deadly Sins and Sailor Mars in the redub of the 90's Sailor Moon series and the Sailor Moon Crystal series. Angelic Buster's voice is Sarah Anne Williams, who voices Nonon in Kill la Kill and Lisbeth in Sword Art Online. All of these three have voiced in a lot of the same anime and I was surprised when I heard their voices in game. However, I do know that the Male voice of Cadena is Sean Chiplock, who voiced Revali in Breath of the Wild. Interestingly enough, he also voiced in Sword Art Online like the first three, as Diabel. I'm not sure who voices the male and female versions of Illium, Phantom and Shade although they do sound very familiar to me.

    Now see, I thought Cadena sounds like Celty Sturlson (Kari Walhgren) from Durarara! Either way, every time I watch a cut scene in Maple, all the voices sound familiar to me.

    So there's really no official va list for the English voice overs?
