My roomates WoW drives me nuts with "coin" sound effect! What can I do?

He plays wow till all hours of the morning and the only sound that bugs the shit out of me is when he picks up gold its like coins rattling or something! drives me batshit. It has found a way to permiate through the door and i can hear it across the house. I tried searching for about 15 minutes and can't find a way to lower the volume or change the sound or exchange it or something! please help!!!

Pixy's right, have him use headphones. He might enjoy it more, he'd be able to crank the sound up. Although it appears he has it pretty high already according to you.

Buy a hidden camera and videotape him masturbating to the female elves in the game, then threaten to post it on the Internet unless they play with the sound off. After they agree, release the video anyway.

You sound like Jonathan Price in Tommorrow Never Dies.

I think there is an addon which can change certain game sounds. so he could install it and make everything sound like the coins

The OP needs to specify more precisely what sorts of actions he wants to take to end this. (I'm assuming he's already asked his roommate nicely to turn down the sound).

Suggestions:

Remove his sound card and hide it until he agrees to keep the sound down.

Steal his speakers and replace them with passively powered Walkman speakers

Uninstall WOW from his PC and steal his CD

Install cheat software on his PC so his CDkey gets banned

the volume level on the game is fine. he has a right to play his game and hear it. the only problem is my ears must be fine tuned to that exact frequency cuz that sound permiates through his wall, into my living room, then through my door into my room. its only that sound. he can be slaying 10 fire breathing dragons and dropping 6 million meteors and set off 12 trillion bombs and it won't bother me one bit, but as soon as he picks up that 1 copper it drives me NUTS!!!
