Mute Annoying WoW Sounds  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: BFAv8.3.1
by: kiingz [More]

This addon will mute some of the annoying sounds of WoW. If you are updating from version 8.1 or lower please read the 8.2 section as the installation instructions have changed.

Changes in patch 8.2
Patch 8.2 broke the way this addon originally worked and so has had to be reworked.
This addon is now installed into the Interface > Addons directory just like any other addon.

Since this change required a complete rework of the addon there are around ~2500 sounds missing from this version that the previous version muted.

You can safely delete the old versions installation folder "Sound" in your World of Warcraft directory.

This version only works on Retail.

Custom Sound Mutes:
If you want to mute sounds that aren't already included in the addon I've created a small tool to help you do so using sound ids found on wowhead.

To clarify, this is NOT needed to make this addon work, this is something extra and entirely optional for those who'd like to mute sounds not already included.

The download and instructions for using it can be found here:

The above link also contains the complete source code for anyone interested.

Basic List: Please note this isn't a complete list, it's a small sample to give an idea of whats been muted.

Are the sounds toggle on or toggle off, or is it install and permanently muted until the addon is disabled?

Does anyone know how to mute the cranes sounds?


I've been trying on my own creating sound files named after the ones in the link above, but I can't get it to work, probably don't have the right folder name (tried Crane and IvoryTuftedCrane).

Hunters use this pet for combat ress which by itself is great, but its sounds are really annoying.

Would most likely be in creature -> footsteps

Question Unit select "thump" sound

When clicking on a mob, NPC or another player, the act of selecting them makes a very annoying "THUMP!" sound. Really bad when wearing earphones. Any idea on if your addon has the muted version of that sound?
