Why in the world did Bioware change the sound from Emergency medpack without putting it in the patch notes?

This makes me perform a lot less since i dont have that sound. Now its something very silent ...

You have to be kidding me. Healing isn't just about visuals clues, half the time my toon is stacked or in flames so I can't even see what I'm doing. Audio clues are very important to a healer, never really understood that until the prior bug with sound on SOA in EV.

I can confirm this... The crisp, clear beep sound that lets you know EMP connected is now gone. The sound effect sounds muffled and distant.

What's weird is that Kolto Jolt, which shared the same sound effect, remains the same.

I'm sincerely hoping this is a bug. If not, it unfortunately rounds out an extremely lackluster sound and animation set for the Sawbones when compared to the Medicine Operative...

Don't forget how they dulled down the gunslinger sound too... Really wish we got a response on the reasons.

Yeah, mess around with weeklies and dailies last night, didn't really notice it in the dailies until I started doing a HMFP. I kept hitting Emergency Medpacs on one person thinking it wasn't going off, Wasted all 3 upper hands before I looked to see he was at 100% health. Glad it was in a HMFP and not in HMEC.

I want my sound back...

It sounds like BioWare's at least aware that our sounds aren't working correctly: http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...7&postcount=24

Agree. If anything make it so the sound effect is for the player only. Audible queues are essential!
