FFXIV fandom, I wish to humbly provide praise for an overlooked but amazing aspect of character creation.
Which is to say male elezen voice #11.
If you’ve only heard it in character creation, you may be wondering what exactly is so remarkable about male elezen voice #11. This is because the really amazing voice clips it has are not ones demonstrated in character creation. Character creation makes #11 sound, well. Normal.
It does not feature the clips from their /happy or /laugh emotes. The laugh you hear is the more toned-down /chuckle.
But if you’ve ever encountered a male elezen with voice #11, you’ll be aware, because those two emotes previously mentioned are… unforgettable. /happy is a single, extremely loud, extremely boisterous “wwwWWWAAAH!” like your elezen is some kind of overgrown Waluigi. The /laugh this voice has is a gloriously grating peal of cracked-voice chuckles. It at once sounds mean-spirited and unappealing and it is perfect. It is a singularly horrible laugh. So horrible that it is my favorite.
So everyone, please take a moment to appreciate male elezen voice #11.
