No Robot voice from Malak's mouth cover /sadjawa

Darth Nihilius's doesn't give a muffled mouth sound effect either when talking...

t.t.t.t.t.t

Update.

However. This is still a thick hunk of metal over our mouth, and it should change out voice in some way.

Probably because Malak had no jaw and used a voicebox, while players in swtor all have jaws and don't use voiceboxes... It's just a piece of metal on their mouths.

What I dislike about this is that you seem to suggest that it would have ever been a possibility for the Development team. They can scarcely draw out content, and you're checking up with them to see if they modified every piece of existing voice acting script for the sake of a single cosmetic piece.

I hope that trip was part of your coffee run or toilet break, or something.

It could be accomplished through SFX filters, might be something for the future. I remember when the game was first released people thought the masks was changing their voice.

Wow, rude much?
When they don't reply to our question we whine. When they do reply, we whine again.
Seriously, just don't come here if you don't like the forum.

People were a lot more optimistic back then.

It's about having honest and straight forward communication, something that EA is seldom capable of. It's about giving the community realistic expectations of the game's current development potential and future. It's about not misleading the community to promote the idea of unyielding success, health and growth.

...Don't most masks alter your voice already? Or am I missing something about what you said?

I don't know about "most" but some do seem to have varying degrees of effect on them. Mainly the ones that cover the mouth and nose, either partial face or full on covers the head.
