Voice Acting... Please. Stop.

Hi everyone! Mostly new to the forum but I need to bring this subject up: the voice acting of some of the classes like Luminous, Demon Avenger/Slayer, and the others which I've heard about but haven't played. I like the Maplestory background music and skill sounds but I'm really tired of hearing the voice acting... (This is the end. This is the end. THIS IS THE END! YAAAAH!) I was just thinking if there's a chance that this could be chosen by the player, such as the volume, the frequency or just choosing to mute it. Perhaps maybe a check box or something under the Mute check box... And, in advance, yes I know I can just mute sfx but that would mute other sounds too, when I really just want to stop hearing the voice acting. Thanks for anyone who reads this and/or replies!

    But then I wouldn't be able to hear the skills? What sounds make up the "skills" categories exactly?

    No no no, there are three volume sliders, with accompanying mute toggles. There's Music, which controls the BGMs, obviously, then there's SFX, which controls the sound effects and is what you're thinking of; lastly, there is Skills, which is nothing but the voice-overs for various class's skill usages.

    I've also been wondering for a while, does the "Skills" option also affect boss voice acting (i.e. Empress)? Or is that under SFX? How about regular quest voice acting, like with Lucid? (can't think of any other voice-acted quests atm).

    Skills only affects the volume of skill voiceovers(Demons, Xenon, Heroes, Hayato, Kanna, Kaiser, Angelic Buster). Everything else is through SFX.
