Common Problems

My Death Knight character is making distorted sounds
Being around death knights I hear a cracking sound in my speaker. 

We are currently investigating distorted sounds from Death Knight characters. This includes when playing the Class or being around a Death Knight. A possible workaround till this issue can be resolved is disabling the DSP Effects: 

From the Battle.net Desktop app's World of Warcraft tab select: Options -> Show in Explorer -> World of Warcraft -> _Retail_ -> WTF -> Open the Config.wtf with a text editor add the following line and save: 

SET Sound_EnableDSPEffects "0"
