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 10/20/2013
-Default /sound/ directory moved out of /data/ and into /world of warcraft/
-Updated readme to reflect directory changes

    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.

    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.

    Hi, Is this going to be updated in the latest patch for MOP? I really want the "wooosh" sound to go away.

    ****UPDATE*** Tested and still works nevermind!!!

  • #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
