The new Greatsaw buzzing in-combat sound is driving me nuts. It’s much louder than other combat effects, really stands out, plays every 1-3 seconds and often glitches during big battles (sound stops for a while then plays for 1-2 seconds at really high speed). I tried lowering sound volume but constant zzzZZZzzz’ing is still the main thing I hear.
Not to mention that if I have 3 mesmer clones up, each with its own GS, I get 4x the same effect.
I understand that in theory a loudly buzzing big chainsaw sounds really cool. It IS cool for the first 10 minutes, but if it’s your main weapon, you’ll eventually get tired of it. I believe the legendary sword Bolt had a sound fix for the very same reason.
Please, ANet, revert this or at least bring the in-combat sound effect on par with out of combat. That pre-patch soft engine purring was perfect.
