The sound of rain ingame creeps me out

Everytime it rains, and i hear it louder and better with my headset, it sounds like to my far left, someone is singing or something. It seriously gave me chills before i realised it came from the game and during the rain. I honestly would like to know if anyone else know about this and if anyone know what exactly it is.

    I don't hear singing, but a soft metallic clink every so often. I think it's just the sound bite restarting.

    It's not every so often it's like every 2-3 seconds. O_o

    True enough. I try to ignore it, sometimes with success. I'm not sure what could be done to fix it other than for them to re-record the sound bite, which I'm not sure they'd do.

    That sound in the background of the rain has been there since game launch. It's almost like an affectation of the game and is something I highly doubt anyone would bother fixing. Honestly I kinda wouldn't want them to fix it. It's also part of the game's nostalgia.

    Finally after a few years, someone mentions this.
    The rain sound reminds me of the Blink 182 song, "Down"

    I am curious what it is though. To me it sounds like an unhinged gate wafting in the wind somewhere. Or perhaps even a type of frog. I wonder if we could get the devs to reveal this 10 year old mystery.

    I always thought it was rain clinking on something metallic. At least I pretend it is, regardless of whether there is something metallic nearby in-game.

    I've heard it too! But to me it sounds like a rooster singing x'D Whatever it is, it's annoying. Because once you hear it for the first time, you can't unhear it.

    it plays 3 descending notes over and over
    like some kind of wind instrument
    i hate it

    i posted a thread about it years ago in the old forum so it's gone now but back then people told me i was hearing things >:[
    glad others actually hear it now

    edit: made a dang video
    my chara goes into combat mode when the sound is happening

    Some ppl notice it more than others. This has been going on since the beginning of the game as already stated. It is really annoying for those who can hear it and hear nothing but that. Most of the time people just move to another place that isn't raining or just have regular music playing while they play. One could request and petition for them to re-modify the sound of rain.

    Well since you guys got your COMMAS, maybe they will fix that. :|

    But really, I really really do NOT want them to fix this. It's part of mabinogi's nostalgia. I remember that sound when I started playing 10 years ago. Please don't take it away. :(

    At first I was wondering what the heck you were talking about, then I heard it. It's one of those things you don't really notice until someone points it out.
    Sounds to me like howling more than singing though.

    You hear the rain getting progressively louder? And when you do something like open your inventory, the volume resets, right? This has been happening ever since I got this new desktop. If this is occurring for you, then maybe it isn't just me.
