Quite the contrary. Blizzard is a multi-billion dollar company who has the money (mostly thanks to South Korea alone) who can afford having huge development teams for it's games and can afford to hire voice actors and production studios to record character dialogue. I find it perfectly normal that most console and PC games have full voice acting. It's become the norm.

Full-blown MMORPGs on the other hand, are a different matter. Cryptic doesn't have Blizzard's luxury. A much smaller development crew accompanied by a budget that is only just enough to keep the game going with the occasional voiced perk every now and then.
