About Error Sounds Be Gone!


Curse client will not work with this addon because this addon is placed in a different folder (outside of the addons directory).

What does it do?

It Gets rid of all those annoying pesky GCD (Global cooldown) error sounds (woosh, clicks, bangs, and fizzle) so you can enjoy the nice sound of battle instead!


!!!!!!! Install Guide READ ME FIRST !!!!!!!

Extract the \Sound folder into your <DIR>\World of Warcraft\Data\

or the Data\Language Folder


H:\World of Warcraft\Data\Sound\

or Data\enUS\Sound

Is this addon legal?

Yes, it is, it does not modify any files outside of addon folder, Blizzard allows sound replacement, if they didn't, this addon wouldn't work like this.

Error sounds still gone 9/23/2013
Re-included .wav files, I guess WoW uses both .ogg/.wav Sorry for the issues!
Please comment if anymore problems, I currently don't hold a WoW subscription, so it can be tricky at times to update!

    I get some weird errors with this "Addon"

    I'm using BigWigs for Bossmods and these soundfiles ruin my bigwigs encounter countdown sound .

    Someone experiencing the same?

  • #63

    That is probably because BigWigs is using the sounds that are disabled. Whatever ones BigWigs use for the encounter countdown sound, you could delete that sound from the folder and it should come back for you.

    Using this addon also disabled the sound for my bg queues. I deleted the files inside Sound -> interface, except uChatScrollButton. Now, I can hear my queue pop, and I don't have to listen to the fucking gcd clicking.

    does this remove the annoying dong sound for paladins?

  • #58


    i used audio files from this addon Spell Not Ready and that seems to have resolved my issue with spell sounds sometimes beeing muted...

    P.S. I left the .WAV and the .OGG in the fizzle folder just like what Spell Not Ready has if that makes any diff.

    Maybe the author of this addon can see if his audio files need more tweaking ?

    there is a problem: since the day i use this addon some of my battle sounds doesn't work sometimes

  • #56

    I still get some fizzle sounds like for when im spamming arcane shot or when i use hunters mark without a target. Was just wondering if anyone could tell me how to fix that. I know I did the install right because i dont get any of the other error sounds. Please help me!

    Update:  Well like most people on here, I got it working again with some tinkering.

  • #53

    I am trying to disable the ability error clicking sound when spamming buttons. is there a way to just create an ingame script for this? Training for the arena tournament realm which doesn't allow addons for ranked teams.

  • #52

    I replaced Fizzle mage sounds with .ogg all SEEMS fine but now i get random dropouts in other spell casting noises like Arcane Blast :¬( way to go bliz and your oggification :¬( 

  • #51

    Updated! Like the others said, Blizzard upgraded sound files to .ogg

    //waiting on approval

    Just to confirm what others have already said,

    have been using this fix for years, after downloading the patch last night started hearing the anoying error sounds again. renaming them from .wav to .ogg fixed my issue.


    here is a link to my sounds in case anyone is having problems:

    also for referance, i am running Windows 7 64bit and the only codex's i have installed is CCCP (

    hope it helps!

    Ok having a pain tonight. Finally found a coverter to change .wav to ogg still doesnt work. What am I missing? Do I need codex to play .ogg?  Anyone someone can post there files or advise?


  • #49

    I had some issue with 4.3.3 as well. I tried to change the file extension, but it didnt work for me. Not sure if its a 64 bit Windows 7 thing or what.. But, I went and converted the .wav file to a .ogg file using a free web app and it worked. Thank God. Hope this helps someone who had the same issue as me. Good gaming All -)
