What is Switchboard?

Switchboard adds various sounds to the game that are triggered based on certain events. Most of these sounds were custom created to fit the game.


Do I have to hear all of them?

Nope. Switchboard allows you to configure which sounds you want to hear.


Can I use my own sounds?

Yep! You can even use existing WoW sounds if you know the names.


Why aren't any sounds included?

To reduce the filesize, sounds will no longer be included with Switchboard. You can download the default sounds here:
