    They all sound very...quiet. I guess I was one of the few people who thought that all Hunter weapons sounded fine already.

    I like the change. I transmog to a bow because I dislike the gun sounds.

    I like gun sound as well

    Real bows make nearly no sound except a faint "fffsp"

    So the new bow sound is correct.

    Those are nowhere near the strength of medieval military longbows. At max those would be 22 kils (48 pounds) for men, and 17 kilos (38 pounds) for women. A full strength English military longbow built to penetrate heavy plate armor typically had a draw weight almost matching a man's average weight of the time, between 130-190 lb draw weight. Something of this strength makes a much different sound to the competition bows in the linked video.

    We're talking about "real" bows and you link a modern competition bow? Pfft.

    I welcome the change, find the gun sound a bit annoying in the long run. And just fun to see some changes after all those years!

    Don't worry, will probably be addons to let you change back to old gun sound, as there is addons to change it now.
    Mix red and blue, what do we get?

    Those videos just hammer home the more accurate sounds in the OP's post.

    Bows essentially make four sounds (if you count the arrows)
    The Tension and release on the bow itself.
    The ALMOST undiscernable noise of the shaft sliding free
    The impact noise.

    None of these sounds is "CreeeakkkTHHHHWPPPPPT" though. New sound is much more accurate.

    I like they decided to put some effort in making new sounds. They sound good.
