    Sorry if someone has already asked about this but what on earth is going on with the sounds!! All was ok yesterday, I play on a desktop pc 99% of the time & always have sound effects on..tonight before I knew it was a pwi issue I pulled all my pc out & checked all the sound/speaker connections to find that most of my faction who have the sounds on it kinda like 'misfiring' sounds awful..what is broken now????

    fix for this problem.
    on your PC's home screen right click on the speaker icon bottom right corner of your screen.
    select open volume mixer
    turn PWI sound down

    Ive seen a few people with sound problems in WC as well.

    They have defaulted their settings and this appeared to work.

    Im sure this wont work for eveyone but its worth a try.

    Everyone I've talked to so far in my faction has this issue, ugh it's beyond annoying. I tried the default settings thing but it didn't work sadly.

    you also need to be running PWI when you click on your speaker icon, all i know is that it worked for me,maybe i'm just special but somehow i dont think i'd be that lucky

    Bumping this because somehow it's still an issue with no fix. Anyone come up with something in the past five months?

    So I clicked "Default" in the settings menu and the glitch went away. I changed SCREEN RESOLUTION and it came back. What kinda glitch is this that audio bugs would be tied to screen resolution?

    My guess on the matter is after dealing with this for the past 30mins - despite muting the sounds the game still tries to broadcast the audio for whatever reason resulting into the weird noices. This is apparent when you tab out of active screen while autoing/macroing, you`ll hear skill sound. Just mute PWI from mixer, havent figured another workaround for this. Hopefully next expansion does something for this, ru patchnotes said something bout upgrading 64bit client performance.
