    Another solution. If you switch to Korean Voice Over she sounds colder. Much colder.

    It's a 600mb file that you can download by going Steam Library>Dota>Preferences>Language>Korean.

    Also this only changes the voice acting, not the UI and tool tips.

    Some Korean VOs are really great. Some not so much.
    You can always switch back to english, but going back to Korean will have you download the 600mb file again.

    Mortred's most "emotionless" line is the "Something in your eye?" line.

    I do think Mortred needs to sound more cold and intimidating; the peppy tone of voice should be for someone else. Even "Mortred" sounds like a scary name.

    I get what you are saying. However, don't you think we have enough seriousface heroes as it is?
    She just seems a bit more relaxed then most, is all. I feeeel blurrrryyyyyyyy. Okay, point taken, she is a bit silly at moments,
    but that's her charm, given how deadly she is.
    And Dota 1 Mort sounds kinda bland to me, not at all intimidating.

    I was extremely sad to hear PA's voice in dota 2 where she sounds like a teen cheerleader with a happy voice and very lame jokes... compared to the amazing voice/lines of dota 1, the PA voice in dota 2 is an utter joke...

    Her lines are even worse than her cheerleader teen voice, with her constantly prattling about being "an immaterial girl" and other such nonsense that completely ruins any form of "dark assassin" theme she had in dota 1.

    She is supposed to be this mysterious veiled dark assassin that decapitates/impales her targets in a single strike - but she talks like she is a teen girl that took too many "happy pills" and is now semi-high from the drugs.


    While i know that voice overs are a very low priority, especially for underplayed heroes, i am hoping that Valve will reconsider changing PA's voice to actually be in the same tone/meaning as the dota 1's PA (they can easily evade any copyright issues).


    I would also like to point out that PA is missing a HUGE number of voice lines, like the rival/ally voice lines - i have not checked every hero in Dota 2, but to me it seems that PA has about 1/3 (or even less) of the voice lines compared to heroes like Legion Commander.
    That's an odd teen there...

    And do remember, this isn't dota copypaste.

    I worded it wrong.
    *It got mentioned multiple times already by the community.

    Waffle ignores it.

    @5chneemensch

    Issue got addressed?
    Can you be any more specific, or provide a link or a quote?
    Right now your post means absolutely zero, aside from sounding snide...

    at first I thought the same but after playing her a bit more I started to like it.
    I have played countless hours with the PA in Dota 2 - and i absolutely hate her voice and lines... even other people i meet while playing agree that her voice/lines just suck...

    I assume that PA is stuck with this "cheerleader" voice for as long as Dota 2 exists, but i definitely wanted to point out that Valve committed an absolute atrocity by butchering PA with the "cheerleader" voice/lines...
