INCREDIBLY ANNOYING*** Water Elemental bug

90 Human Mage
I can't pinpoint where or what triggers it. But for some reason my Water Elemental occasionaly gets stuck making the Water Bolt casting noise. It is hugely annoying and aggravates me to the point of having to log out/in to stop it or muting my game volume entirely.

Have any other mages been experiencing this or is it just me?

It happens to me to. I haven't found a fix, but rather than logging out you can open up your sound settings and change the sound quality slider back and forth. It resets your driver and clears the bug, at least until the next time.

This post would have been better in the bug report forums also.

I messed around with this in the MoP beta. Near as I can tell it's related to phasing in certain areas.

Turn off game sounds, listen to music and enjoy being OP.

I am on a Mac and I am able to fix it by going to:

Game Menu:System:Sound

and selecting a different sound device under "Game Sound Output" and selecting it back to the device I use. I have 4 devices available though (Airplay, a 3rd party device, Built-in and System default) so the solution might not work if you only have Built-in and System Default available.

I don't have to log out and back in with this method.
