Daredevil Staff - underwhelming sound

Visually, I think the animations for Daredevil staff are awesome, and I keep referring to my character as a Monk instead of a Thief. But the audio? So underwhelming. It does sound somewhat like wood striking flesh, but it lacks the oomph factor. I leveled as D/D, and I loved the sounds of 1 and 3; they sounded like death by a thousand cuts, which for me hit the right tone for using daggers. The sound made by the shortbow is spot on.

I only play a few professions, but when my Ranger or Guardian hits someone with their GS, I hear a nice satisfying CLANG. When my warrior connects with his axes, I hear an enjoyable CHOP.
But that staff.... :(

    I play Staff DD for PVE and I kind of see what you mean. Except for Vault and Bound because the crashing sound to the ground is awesome. I see the problem for the rest of the stick hits sometimes... its sounds more like a club/hammer sound instead of a stick. Like there is more mass hitting an object which doesn't make sentence. Especially if you got the skin of really skinny stick but I got the Inquest Mark II Staff which has a big mass at the end which makes more sense since its like a big hammer. But this is such a minor detail....but I do see what you mean.
