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\

or the \Language Folder


H:\World of Warcraft\Sound\

or \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 4/26/2015
-Default /sound/ directory moved out of /data/ and into /world of warcraft/
-Updated readme to reflect directory changes

    I tried this and it did not work. I really anticipate you updating this addon.

  • #71

    need an update badly.... im getting so annoyed im hardly logging on anymore.. and when i am log on i turn off all sound in wow.

  • #70

    can u plz update this wod is out we need a update

  • #68

    I'm currently looking through the myriad of files with Laziks Casc Viewer just to see if I can find anyhting useful, I don't know if this approach will eventually lead to a way to mute the sounds ESBG could previously silence. If you want an option ingame to turn these sounds off I encourage you to go bump my thread on eu blizz forums -

    I am forced to play without sound in wows current state.

    Only people with EU accounts can post in your thread.


    I made one here for US:


    It baffles me that after all this time, they still haven't given us options to turn off the red error text or the gong sound. Someone at Blizzard said 'Hey, you know what would be good? A really loud and grating sound for when you mis-press a button!'


    And it just never got fixed.

    Of all my addons, this is the one I miss the most.

    Tried to get it working, but due to the new file system in 6.0 I may be back to playing WoW without sounds.  Fucking error sounds, why can't Blizzard just have an option to turn them off?

  • #66

    I replaced the sound files again after the patch but that doesn't seem to work anymore. Any ideas?

  • #64

    I really wish you or someone else would update this or make a new one. I can't play this game if I have to listen to that gong sound when I press a spell at the wrong time. It's grating!

  • #65

    As someone who spams the hell out of their buttons, I agree.

  • #62

    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.

  • #61

    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.

  • #59

    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 ?
