Beacon of Light = most annoying sound

Paladin
I just had 4 out of 5 tanks in my group purposely cancel Beacon of Light because it was just too WOOOSHOOOWOOOSHOOOWOOOSHOOOWOOOSHOOOWOOOSHOOOWOOOSH. One even started arguing with me over it.

And i agree. Its just very high pitch, annoying sound that overwhelms everything else that's going on. Since i like to cast a lot of heals to build up my Holy Power, i can understand why people get annoyed. Basically i stopped using BoL until it will not frustrate my team.

i just don't understand why a ability that procs almost every 2 seconds needs to have such over powering-high pitch sound to it.
How will that fix anything i mentioned?
Thank you for proving my point. That's why i posted here so Blizz can see that there is an issue.
Haha, your tank was purposefully gimping his/her healer because the audio was annoying?

That's win right there. Screw leveling. Screw phat blues. If my WoW doesn't sound sexy, I'm canceling my account.
They'd LOVE Hammer of the Ringing Ears, then.
I can't tell if this is a troll post...
Now, can we discuss exorcism?
what!? you must've met some uppity tanks. all my tanks love my beacon sound and the bright flashies that appear underneath. they also love it when i pop divine favor and start spamming exorcism when i should be healing them. actually everybody loves that, VRAAOMM VRAAOMM VRAAOMM .... KISSSHH KISSHH KISSHHH

hey how come holy shock doesn't have an annoying sound? i think it should be brought up to par with the others.

edit: oh wait, sometimes if it crits you get a super cool clock sound i totally love that!! :D :D :D
I was more annoyed that I hadn't been aware it was changed to 5min duration. I had been recasting it every 50 seconds or so the one time I healed ICC after it changed. When I finally realized it was changed, my wife wouldn't stop making jokes.

That's epic.

On the subject of beacon...I love the sound...I think it's awesome and it has never annoyed me in the least. In fact it always makes me feel better cause I know I'm getting heals.

Also...if your tanks are gimping your performance just because of an annoying audio...they need to reconsider their priorities in WoW and perhaps give up tanking. Seriously...it's not that difficult to turn off audio if it annoys them that much. Gimping your healer just because of an annoying audio is just bad.

You want annoying?

Warlock's "Hand of Gul'dan" sound effect > all other spell sound effects

It's literally "fingernails on a chalkboard" or "cutting glass," and it always conveniently lands on the melee.


^^

Seriously. I HATE demo locks for that sound effect.
I let them die until the realize its the sound of me putting my love into them, standing behind them and filling them up all the way to full.
I have had the same problem! just tell them to deal with it, if tank removes beacon of light then the tank gets no heals.

simple as that.

If you had the beacon glyph, beacon is free.

This is a 10 on the creep-o-meter.
