About Water Elemental Silencer

Note: You can leave a private message for me here: Talk to Skulhamr

Do the bubbling water sounds of the Water Elemental Pets make you yearn for a bathroom break? This tiny addon takes no memory and simply silences the bubbling water sounds, leaving the rest of the attack sounds intact.

To Install: Extract the "Sound" folder contained in this zip file into your World of Warcraft folder. This will create a folder called "Sound" under (inside) the World of Warcraft folder. When the game runs it will substitute any sounds it finds there for equivalent sounds in the game. (See screenshot images for illustration.) Do not use the Curse Client Auto-installer. It is a known problem that it does not handle sound mod addons properly.

To Uninstall: Rename or delete the "Sound" folder under (inside) your game's "Data" folder.

Notes on Installation: Zip/Unzip programs vary in how they work. The end result must be that a folder called "Sound" is created under (inside) your World of Warcraft folder. Restart game after installation. (If your Unzip program is confusing you, try unzipping to your Desktop and then simply copying the "Sound" folder to your WoW folder.)

    I found the solution here on Curse. The Sound folder should no longer be inside the Data folder. It should be in the main World of Warcraft folder. I installed your Sound folder in the new location and now there is peace and quiet again!

    I assumed the filenames and paths had changed when they moved to the CASC system.  Way to go ShakharKJ.  I'll check that out this afternoon and hopefully rescue all my addons.

    My understanding from ShakhtarKJ is that disabling pet sounds in the Blizzard interface doesn't mute the bubbling sounds of your own water elemental.  I'll dive a little deeper into CASC and see if I can't fix the current problem with the addon.

    Apparently the CASC file system has been employed by Blizzard and it screws with the classic sound mods.  However, I've approached several Mages with Water Elementals and have heard no obnoxious sounds.  Please let me know of your experience.

    While there is an option to disable pet sounds, it's never worked for the idle noise of water elementals, now or in the past. I installed a mute ogg file in the correct path a couple years ago, and it worked fine until the recent 6.0 patch. I can walk near other mages with water elementals and not hear much, but when I play my mage, my water elemental is annoyingly bubbly. I hope you can find what changes Blizzard made to break the ogg silencer  :)

    Uh, oh.  Thanks Orimus.  That's important information.  Maybe the pet-sounds mods are obsolete.

    More later.

    2014-10-18 - I'll check into the issues since I'm having mixed reports of the files working and not working.  It looks like the file paths may have changed.  Give me a few days.

    How to make your addons work with 6.0 ? I tried in Data and Data/data but the sounds doesnt change anymore :/

  • #22

    Same here. None of these sound patches appear to work since 6.0.

  • #19

    I wish I could just take you to dinner some place that's uber fancy. That would be the appropriate thanks for developing this much needed add-on! This little mage thanks you eternally! xD

    I'm so glad this addon is helpful to you all.  Note that, at the request of Shroomblaze, I worked on a version that would work with the glyphed elemental (Unbound Water Elemental).  He was able to find the proper sound files in the MPQ file, which was a great help, and he got it working for himself.

    I've incorporated those files in the latest version of Water Elemental Silencer but I have no way of testing them to make sure they are working.  So if anyone is using the Unbound Water Elemental, I'd appreciate any feedback.  What I did was cut the volume by 20 decibels.

    I'm glad you like it.  I created the darn thing for myself when I was bringing up my Mage and I thought there might be others who were barely enduring the gurgling.

    I installed this addon manually, and I do not get the water elemental sounds...HOWEVER, I do get this annoying droning buzz sound that won't go away. 

    Any way to remove that? lol.
