    Default weird sound and black smoke when monsters activate

    They sound like a robot turning on and when they die they turn off too. It sounds like machinary and there is black smoke around the monster too. So annoying I might have to walk away until it is fixed.

    And no it is not warforged. Flesh monsters do it.

    Are you playing/playing with a Favored Soul, perchance?

    Sounds like you are seeing/hearing the Favored Soul arua hitting stuff. Bit like a lion roar, just chopped short to a bit less than 1 second duration. Annoying ain't it?

    The Favored Soul PrE Aura or the Aura you get from Exalted Angel causes this type of effect.

    I understand totally. I hate that noise with a passion, and most other folks seem to as well.



    It astounds me that changes like this can be made, or even conceived of. The noise adds nothing to the game whatsoever, and is obnoxious in the extreme.

    I understand how it can be annoying... But personally, I think it's quite rad... I'll probably get tired soon though lol.

    Go to Options/Audio and turn down the new slider for Ambient Sound. Fixes this.

    Ah yes, welcome to the FvS aura sound bug.
    There are lots of threads about this.

    It's annoying, I do agree.
    My vote would be for them to just remove the sound entirely.

    I cringe every time I play my FvS, or there's one in the party that makes that horrible noise all the time. I enjoy the combat sounds and such though, so it's not a viable option for me to just turn off the volume slider(s). I'll just grind my teeth and pray they can fix it soon while avoiding FvS as much as possible.

    Currently the only ways to get around it besides using volume controls...

    Don't take the PrE
    Drink invisibility potions when you move around - Have to deal with it while fighting
    Sneak everywhere - Have to deal with it while fighting

    It does help to know when a monster is coming behind you.

    I was wondering about the lag cause my laptop running another account was smoothe. The lag from Favored Soul aura is disgusting. We should all fill out bug reports. I will once I get on computer and off thls phone.

    I object. It is a detector for hidden mobs. But since nobody cares about hidden mobs, it remains useless.

    Why does turbine think that everything in the game needs a sound effect? Between this and the light monk's healing curse attack new sound effect, I am really starting to consider just playing the game without sound at all.

    Default The most annoying part of the game right now

    I find it so annoying my sound is turned OFF when playing my FVS.

    The aura also seems to cause lag issues for me, in particular in very busy quests with lots of mobs.

    I don't understand why someone thought that FVS would enjoy this really annoying sound ALL THE TIME NON STOP while playing. The visuals I can deal with, but it does not add anything positive to the game experience so I wonder why they are there.

    If they Aura was something I could turn on/off maybe some visual would be helpful. As it stands, if you play an FVS you know you have and Aura, why the incredibly irritating "womp womp" sound and stupid graphics (on dead mobs as well nonetheless).

    Kill this one Devs, it was a bad idea. Its really annoying.

    Just to register again my annoyance with the FVS aura again

    ... and the Pale Master one too.

    Loud noises should be limited to special things... Successful quivering palm, smithing, vorpal, etc... Things that makes you happy...
