About BossFilter


This addon is inspired by Endeavours BossTalk


  • Allows you to disable all combat sounds while still hearing boss sounds
  • Full-text search for all yells to quickly find your favourite yell
  • Easy method to play sounds while not being at the specific boss
  • All Cataclysm, Wotlk and most BC instances supported
  • Possibility to find out corrects sounds even if there's a typo in the database or the sounds don't fully match the chatmessage.
  • Random function
  • Chat-channel broadcast for your personal quiz, which also supports your custom private channels
  • Collection of new boss yells


  • Q: Can you add the correct sound for my new boss yells?
    • A: It's impossible to determine automatically which sound belongs to which yell, so you can post the unsupported yell and I'll see if a sound exists for it
  • Q: How can I play boss sounds manually?
    • A: Either you can input the correct yell-ID (by searching for the yell), or you can just click on the number infront of the yell you want to hear in your chatframe (after searching for it).
  • Q: Can you make this work for my localization?
    • A: As I'm playing on an enGB client I'd need a localization for every single yell. (And yes, it's case-sensitive)
  • Q: How can I make this work?
    • A: The major functionality is to be able to play boss-sounds in raid. All you have to do is to go in your Sound options and uncheck "Sound effects" while "Sound" (the topmost checkbox) is still checked.


Credits go to Endeavour for his original database which saved much work for me

    Has anyone found an alternative to this yet?

  • #88

    Any chance this addon will be updated? I always loved it and missed it a lot since WOD :( Or are there any alternatives?

  • #87

    Hello, always loved this addon and i'm missing it for the wod bosses :( any update planned? :)

  • #86

    How come I can't hear the boss sounds of any WoD bosses?

  • #85

    Dude, what about Alextrasza in Dragon Soul? There are sounds for every other aspect including Thrall, but not her.


  • #84

    Please can I know the sound ids from Doctor Theolen Krastinov? ^_^ It's that boss from Scholomance.

  • #83

    So what about local npc sounds? Would that be a do able/addable thing by yourself?

    What im getting at is like when you click on any npc to have their sounds play.

  • #80

    Would be cool if it's possible to have it so party members can hear the yells if they have the addon, similar to endeavor's bosstalk :) Either way, still a great addon!

  • #81

    You mean when you manually play a yell or output it to the chat? When the boss performs a yell they hear it anyways when nearby.

  • #76

    Update for addon version 1.30, Alliance side:

    Immerseus - done
    The Fallen Protectors - done
    Norushen - done
    Sha of Pride - done
    Galakras - Still can't hear most of the introductory conversation between Jaina and Varian at the beginning of the fight, sadly. Rest of the fight is fine.
    Iron Juggernaut - done, I think
    Kor'kron Dark Shaman - Still can't hear what's being said when the Horde are torturing the Pandaren and we save him. Sorry I'm terrible with names and typing in the middle of a raid. Shaman fine.
    General Nazgrim - done
    Malkorok - done

    And these for this raid lockout after upgrading to 1.31:
    Spoils of Pandaria - Still can't hear Admiral Taylor, some of Mekkatorque, or the Gomeregan Operative on the trash before entering the room. Boss yells almost all complete.
    Thok the Bloodthirsty - Wasn't in for him this week.
    Siegecrafter Blackfuse - Still can't hear Moira during the cinematic.
    Paragons of the Klaxxi - done
    Garrosh Hellscream - Can't hear THRALL.
