Path of Exile Wiki

The Strange Voice is first heard after touching a Mirror of Delirium in The Torched Courts (Act 5). From then on, the voice talks to the player whenever they touch the mirror.

The Strange Voice is voiced by actor Michael Hallows.[1]


Strangely Familiar Entity

While the voice refuses to give way much about himself, some hints indicate that his real identity is Tangmazu, the trickster god. (read the table below for the exact voiceline) According to legend, he tricked the goddess Lunaris into making enemies with her sister Solaris, turning them into mortal enemies for eternity. He is Ralakesh's brother.
