    how do i mute them using what you posted?


  • #442

    I love you for this :)

  • #440

    I agree with Garfeeld. And does anyone know of an addon that lowers the volume of the Warlord's Deathwheel?

  • #436


  • #439

    put sounds folder in wow directory instead of wow/data

  • #437

    It supports 6.0.2 as long as you putting Sound folder inside World Of Warcraft/ not, World Of Warcraft/Data/. Author should probably update 'Supports' version even if there won't be new files added, just to clear at least some misunderstanding.

  • #433

    Well I've had no luck with this. I installed it into the World Of Warcraft>Data directory. I uninstalled the Water Elemental loop track and it deleted all of my Swiftsaber's sounds instead!  Plus the summoning sound of the Swiftsaber. I then tried installing it in the main World Of Warcraft folder and the same result. I tried uninstalling and re-installing a couple times, restarting the game, exiting completely out of Battle, and nothing got it to work properly. 

  • #434

    Whats your OS?

    Do you (your computers user account) have control over the WoW folder, if you run WoW as an admin does it work?

  • #435

    Success! I got it to work. I installed only the .ogg files (respecting the correct path), of the sounds I wanted to mute. So ex. for male Worgen sniff, I just added path sound\creature\worgenmale and then the three associated .ogg files inside the worgenmale folder - I added the path (for my install) in E:\world of warcraft\world of warcraft\data  

    I'm still not really clear on whether that's what was intended in the original install instructions. At any rate, that's how I did it. And I just did similar for each sound I wanted to eliminate ... H2O Elemental, Tauren scratch, etc.

    To answer, I'm running Win 7 64 bit

    Thanks for this kingy

    As of the current beta build this does still work even with the new filetype.

    To enable it on the beta client you need to move the sound folder into the WoW directory.
    On the live client you need to place it in World of Warcraft > Data folder.
    On the beta client you need to place it in the World of Watcraft folder.

    Of course it is beta so that could change before live but given that Blizzard has specifically allowed these types of edits (that's the only reason it works) it's unlikely that they'll change it.

    Any word on how to make this work in WoD?

  • #430

    Can you add the noise for the Battle Pet move "Chew"?

    It's disgusting.

  • #429

    Any idea on how to find the rogue poison application during combat sound?

    While I don't have a single problem with the current game version I truly hope that this addon is functional in WOD. 

    I didn't realize how much some sounds were annoying me until I didn't have it. However, if it does work currently, I'd greatly appreciate it how to make it work. The beta file structure is apparently different. 

    Thanks again for all of the great almost silence since this mod was released. 


    FWIW - Dropping the Sound folder into the main WoW directory works perfectly. ;)
