    Default PM noises

    Was tempted to try a PM in near future life but hearing them still making constant sucking noises with their auras reminded me never again. I don't understand why they allow griefing level noises like PM sucking sounds, clanking shield defenders, $coundrel violin noises on spells, etc, etc, etc. I hope they never nuke INQs because I refuse the loud triple pew pew pew of repeaters, another style I never again play until they tame the noises.

    I can probably just step in and break the SFX on this if you'd like.

    Please don't. It would be better, and easier, to simply create a special client for the OP where sounds are replaced by smells.

    How about you just turn down the fountain SFX in the Sharn hub?

    I swear that thing is monstrously loud...I'll do a House of Pain run to end my play session (probably 40+ runs and still no Family Recruit Sigil ><) and when I log back in next time, I always get my ears blasted by the tsunami they seemingly installed in Cliffside.

    The guy described it as a sucking sound XD

    Maybe you should make it sound more like he described it........

    Tbh some sounds and graphical effects should probably just be toned down a bit. Repeaters are often mentioned. While technically a reasonable sound, any harsh sound that repeats too often just gets on peoples nerves.

    Personally, I've always found the warlock cone EB fart noises + the resulting green smoke cloud of GoO a particularly... unfortunate.. combination.

    Someone needs to take away your toys. I could almost hear the evil laugh as you were typing this.

    Yes, Lynn, its a full moon tonight. However, its also a festival Chinese mid-autumn festival night for the Chinese and several oriental companies.

    If you go to Costco or H-Mart in Burlington, you can buy moon cakes. They will be discounted 50% or more tomorrow.
    The moon will be brighter and seems to be spherical tomorrow night though according to your naked eye.

    As far as the PM sounds, it should sound like the same as the arcane skeleton, what's wrong with that sound? I got used to it?!?

    Unless people are asking the sounds to be different from monsters.
    i.e. PM-zombies should have zombie sounds like "yaw, aw..., I love brains..."

    PM-wraiths should have wraith sounds from Stargate: Atlantis like "Szzssh, Szzzssh, I dodge bosses..."

    PM-liches should have lich sounds like from Abbot or DOTA or should their microphone sound be filtered like that?

    and the monster arcane skeleton got to keep their current "sucking" noises.

    I know people would prefer game wide solutions when they could just go into their options and turn down the SFX, or outright mute the game entirely.
    Leave it as is. If I can adapt to the sounds others make while chewing without complaining- and let's face it, farts are less disgusting sounds than some lip smackers make- then you can take an ounce of gumption and adjust your speakers or settings so you don't have to listen to the tink-tink-tink of a repeater or the kaddunk- kaddunk of a beloved humonculi in need of better programming.

    kids these days.
    Get off my lawn.
    I went to war so you could have your new fangled game sounds so I'm gonna listen to 'em, too!
    Sometimes I'm too clever for my own good. Bear in mind I'm probably trying to be humorous. Like dodge, it's hit or miss.// Looking for a guild on Orien? Send a tell to Magnifique to join the "Fidelic Brotherhood".

    I'm not too far on one side of this or another, but turning down the sounds would be ok with me!

    The sounds are ok but not very nice for persistent and frequent occurrences. It would be nice to use PMs, guardians, scoundrel casters, etc. The original guardian sounds were better. New scoundrel sounds are better but would be nice if they were much less frequent, possibly not on spells at all, or just quieter. PM sounds like a hydraulic pump that never stops, like you're on life support in the iron lung. Would rather not turn off all other sounds on that slider, just a few frequent and persistent loops like these.
