Our Mumble server

Communicating with the in-game chat isn't very efficient when raiding, anybody knows that. That's why we, as most other raiding guilds, use voice communication during raids.

We have chosen Mumble as our VoIP solution because of the low latency and the fact that it's completely free and open-source.

The only problem with Mumble, compared to other solutions, is that many users find it difficult to set up when they first install and open it. This page aims to help new members (or PUGs) get their Mumble client up and running with our server.

Downloading Mumble

Before doing anything, you will need to download the installer for Mumble. You can do so from their page on sourceforge.net. Just select the version appropriate for your system. This is the recommended way, as it is guaranteed that you get the latest client version. If you'd rather have a direct download link, you can find them in the sidebar for Windows and OS X. Save the installer somewhere accessibly, like your desktop.

Installing Mumble

Just run the installer that you downloaded and follow the on-screen instructions. If you'd rather want a complete guide to installing it, we've compiled an installation guide just for you below.

Please note that this installation guide assumes you are using the Windows operating system.

Once the installer has finished downloading, it's time to run it. Double-click on the installer file and choose "Yes" on any UAC prompts. You should be greeted with the following window.

Easy, just press "Install" to begin installation. Press "Yes" on any UAC prompts that appear during installation.

Mumble installer finished

Once installation has finished, make sure you check the "Start Mumble" checkbox before pressing "Finish". When Mumble starts up, an audio wizard will launch to guide you through setting up and configuring your microphone and speakers or headphones.

WARNING: Do not cancel the audio wizard prematurely as it is imperative that you follow it from start to finish to ensure an optimal experience with the Mumble client. Closing out of the audio wizard early is the most frequent source of problems.

Now that you are connected, you can begin talking to other people on the server. If you are here for a raid, an officer will move you into the appropriate channel.

Server rules

In addition to the regular guild rules, there are some additional rules to observe when using our Mumble server.

No harassment

Harassment is not tolerated, if you are found to be harassing other people on the Mumble server, you will be kicked and/or banned.

Use PTT or Voice Activation

Do not use the "Continous transmission" mode on Mumble, it will transmit everything that your microphone picks up and is very annoying to listen to.

Use headphones

If you have headphones, then please do use them. Using speakers with a VoIP service will often lead to your microphone picking up the sounds coming from the speakers, and everyone will hear themselves talking thanks to you. This can also make it difficult to hear what people are saying, due to the echo.

Speak English

Our guild is international, we have members from many different countries speaking many different languages. Please be aware that not everyone can speak your mother tongue. Use English when communicating with others on the Mumble server.
