The Sounds for El Toro are too loud in battle

The battle sounds of El Toro are too loud. Every time the trumpet or even the music plays for his move, I have to immediately turn down my speakers! Or if I am wearing head phones, i have to take them off real quick! NOT GOOD! Also, the spell with the drums also does this. Everyone I talk to agrees with me. Please fix it. It makes the game un-enjoyable.

I COMPLETELY AGREE!!!!!! I was watching a basketball game the other day while playing, so I put my computer's volume to 2%. But later when I was in battle, El Toro had a Mega Hit and it was really loud and it caught the attention of me, my dad, and my two dogs sitting on the ground next to me. KI, please fix this if it is possible. Thanks

He's only loud in PVP. In battle against NPCs, it's OK.

I think Espirit De Corps should be more quiet as well, the sound of it travels to the next room of my house if I leave my headphones on the table, and the volume isn't even on full blast.

El Toro would say: You can't quiet justice ( El toro is a show off )

But it is loud

I think the volume being way too loud is the point. El Toro is kind of a show off and likes flair and this draws attention to him.

El Toro's buffs sounds are incredibly obnoxious.
These are so obnoxious I no longer am able to enjoy the rest of the audio of the game because I must MUTE Pirate101 in order to play it. I guess I could simply shelve El Toro, but he is one of the best/funnest companions in the game.

No it's not. I have adjusted all my volume levels and El Toro's trumpets, etc. still make the cats jump off my lap! It needs to be adjusted down to the same levels as all other game actions.

Would like to hear a developers thoughts on this.

Personally I think its quite a detriment to have one or two sound bites in the game that are so obnoxious it makes us turn sounds way down or completely off.

Seems like a waste of efforts they likely put into the rest of the games sounds/voice overs ruined by someones sick sense of humor in implementing these very loud/obnoxious sounds. Its like hearing my alarm go off in the morning, I hate it, but an alarm is supposed to have that reaction, not playing a game.

Love the game, love to "hear" most the game, its ashamed I have to play with sound off, specifically due to the noise made when El Toro's buffs are cast.

I have to warn other players in pvp before I use El Toro because then they'll have to deal with El Toro's noise.
I think it would be better for ALL of us if El Toro was not as loud.

This should be fixed in the next major update to the game.

Thank you so much Jack. It will be nice to get back to enjoying all the nice sound effects in your game, like the loons in mooshu. I miss them but El Torro has necessitated my keeping the game muted.

Well, I dont mind his critical music, or most of the in battle noises.

The only one I could not handle and forced me to turn off all game sounds (because i use the feature frequently) is El Toro's accuracy and dodge buff.

The drums are cool, but the whoopee whistle noise and/or trumpet playing (whatever it is), is incredibly obnoxious. Its volume seems to be 3x louder than the other effects, and are obnoxious alarm like sounds, not flowing music...

All my friends jokingly say "WAKE UP!" on skype when we cast these spells (I think Privateer has a similarly noisy buff, I never use because of the noise, lol)

El Toro's specials are really loud. I was hoping that others would notice, and a whole lot did. i am blasting out my eardrums from that. Its not really the trumpet part, more like right after, when they burst and deals out the improvements.
