Sound

Technical Support
Hey just wondering if anyone else is having this problem? I can hear most sounds in wow but not my char attacks, Mounting up, walking, pretty much anything to do with sound coming from my char. When I startup wow sounds like things are under water when I hit play but I tested out my headset to see if that's the problem but nope. Deleted my wtf folder umm just did everything I can think of but no such luck...
Sixthskull ,

So it sounds "wrong" using a headset as well?

Let's get the game back to the default settings first to make sure it's not addon or setting related. You can do that temporarily and not lose any customization you've done.

With the game closed please rename your WTF folder to WTF.bak and INTERFACE
folder to INTERFACE.bak. Delete the Cache folder entirely. These hold setting info and temporary cache files that will be recreated by the game the next time you launch. Renaming them allows you to rename them back later if this step doesn't resolve anything.

NOTE: Please also make sure to remove any and all addon auto-installers or auto-updaters you may have, as those can automatically reinstall addons for you, possibly causing further issues.

Now start the game up again and see if the issue is still there.
Same thing is happening with me, just started doing it randomly, I hear everything amplified except my own characters spells etc. I tried wtf and interface removal, deleted cache, no addons on...
I have the same sound effect problem; all character based sounds are at an extremely low level. I have tried deleting the folders and updated sound driver, but still have the problem.

Best to start your own thread rather than reply to a thread that was originally created 18 months ago. Makes it far more likely to get a response- and the lack of response to adorapriest shows will happen.
