Gun? What gun?

So far, I've steadily ignored the fact that there happens to be a perfectly good upgrade for my crossbow.
I could use the excuse that it's expensive, but 1) I have plenty of gold and 2) if it had been a bow, I would have made one as soon as a guildie had the pattern.

It isn't the first time I've purposely not upgraded a ranged weapon because of looks, aesthetics or just because, and I'm sure it won't be the last.

In the meantime, I'm determined to will the Lava Bolt Crossbow into dropping. And it will. At some point. Soon. Please? :P

I was thrilled to get the Lava Bolt Crossbow, but I hate, destest, AND loath the gun sound. Hate. It. >.<

Oh well, the upgrade was still nice.

I do prefer a bow, but the guns don't bother me in the slightest, I farmed and farmed to get the schematic for the swiss cheese machine, and a happy huntard I am for it.

On another note, I'm sure I've seen addons to change the sound of gun fire on curse in the past. Not sure if they still work/are available, but might be worth a looky.

It's not that *I* don't like the sound, exactly. I don't like *other* people - i.e. Horde - to hear it. It pinpoints your location for your enemies in PvP :P

Being a Dwarf and a bit of a role player ...I love guns. One of the things I like most is the sound and have actually added gun sounds to bows during the times I've used them when there was no equivalent gun. I'm still waiting to get a Lavabolt and just love the fact that it sounds like a gun :)
