So long as it isn't Deathwing roaring every 10 seconds, I'm happy.

Agreed, I've been turning the sound down lately when I log in, its just too much hearing the roar...

Agreed, I heard muttering once there was an interface addon to do this. However I doubt this is true as the addons seem to be loaded only upon zoning in.RRROOOOAARRRRRRRRR!

My point. Everything, but no Frostwyrm anymore.Maybe some cycling through different scenarios (mentioned Barrens scar, Desolace).I almost expect some reddish-black design of the starter itself.Maybe while overhauling the whole ingame content, they could have a look into the login system as well?Just thinking about it, there are sure some topics about the login process for itself which might need an overhaul. Just thinking about some sort of quicklaunch where you select the last - say five - alts you recently played. This would skip the character chooser.Or just imagine some sort of replay of selected fights you bested during login... would be nice, too...

Exactly what I wanted to say, Goddam.. I think the first two times I heard it I was kind of impressed and from then on It drove me insane!!! I then turned it into a race.. try and log in before it would swoop down and land.

I would prefer a portal-themed login screen as well, maybe the enterance to uldum or something like that.@Ryan: It wasn't an addon but a glue xml mod. It's legality according to the TOS was questionable and it was killed with patch 3.2 that disabled overriding of those files.

@Ryan: This is the addon to mute the dragon. You have to put the files in the Sound folder though, just follow the instructions. :)http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info15502-SilentDragon.html

I've been using SilentLoginScreen (which is basically the same as SilentDragon) for ages. There's no question about their "legality" as far as Blizzard is concerned - all you're doing is causing the client to play a local .wav file instead of the .wav files packed in the .mpq files.I also use Gun Silencer/Suppressor, which replaces the gunshot sounds with pffft pffft pffft silenced sounds, QuietThatHorse, which replaces the screeching sound of the Death Knight war horse when it is summoned with a soft rolling thunder sound, and TrainWreck, which silences all train sounds in the game.All you do is unzip the .wav files into the ..\World of Warcraft\Data directory - the folder structure is in the .zip file. For example, the gun silencer/suppressor addon adds files to ..\World of Warcraft\Data\Sound\Item\Weapons\Gun\ directory.http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info12060-GunSilencerSuppressor.htmlhttp://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/qth.aspxhttp://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/trainwreck.aspx
