    Haven't played with sound for years now. I just find the combat sounds to be annoying so I rather just listen to music or have a movie/video playing in the background

    always with sounds on, i like to hear whats going on and GTFO addon rely's on sound :P ye i need that addon lol.
    fire is bad!

    but when raiding i lower the sound a lot. since i wanna hear ppl talking on vent and in LFR i can turn off many other things and do my own thing.

    I used to never play with sounds, but since MoP's release I simply can't force myself to turn off the music.

    I play with sound off so i can listen to music while i play. Haven't played with sound since start of cata, i liked listening to the in game music in BC and Wotlk though so i played with sound back then.

    No sound in PvE, I always play while chatting on skype. PvP is different and sometimes hearing that stealth rogue or druid near you can be a life saver (though still while talking on skype )

    Usually If I'm in a new area for the first time (like during an xpac) I'll have the sound on.... other than that I have it off because of vent/ts/skype/mumble or music..... Or listening to the Howard Stern show When i got GW2 i had the sound on for maybe 2 days.... After that, the sound remained off.

    Most of the time my sound stays on but low because i always listen to music or watch a movie while playing.
    And indeed some sounds are very annoying (mind flay, 'that spell isn't ready yet', etc).

    Music off but sounds definitely on, I just need to hear the actionjackson sounds, being a dps myself. Plus many of the bosses have such epic voices I just wouldn't wanna miss out on those. And I would find the game extremely boring with no sounds tbh.

    I really really really can not imagine raiding with the in-game sounds on. What's the point of using Voice chat if you have the wow sounds on (be it the spell/attack sounds, or just the ambient music). And yes, I obviously tried lowering the sounds biiig time before turning them off, but for me, every sound that was not coming from the Voice chat, was a distraction.

    Same shit applies to ppl listening to music while raiding. I simply can't fathom how they do it^^

    Unless they removed/changes the sound of Mind Flay, that's also a big reason to have it off as an SP.

    Every time I turn the music on, I get that nostalgia feeling though, ESPECIALLY in Shattrath, most of the Ally starter zones, SW and IF

    They're (short for They are) describes a group of people. "They're/They are a nice bunch of guys." Their indicates that something belongs/is related to a group of people. "Their car was all out of fuel." There refers to a location. "Let's set up camp over there." There is also no such thing as "could/should OF". The correct way is: Could/should'VE, or could/should HAVE.

    Got the sound turned on most of the time. Not if a certain piece of music annoys me to death. I'M LOOKING AT YOU EASTERN PLAGUELANDS!
    I like to hear the sounds when in combat, I kinda need them as a feedback. Besides, is there anyone flying around Org with their music turned off? The current bgm is one of the best WoW has seen in years. Makes me want to roll a Horde char twice a week.

    Haven't had sound turned on for maybe 6 years, it found it to be too annoying and repetitive. I also like to listen to my own music while playing, so having sound on only interferes with that.

    Sounds on but turned RIGHT down so it's only things like DBM that can generally be heard. Music though is off.
