How to disable Amazon shouts in Diablo 2?

I’m replaying Diablo2 with Amazon once again and I would like to leave music and SFX sounds, but I want to mute the Amazon, her constant shouts when she shoots are going on my nerves. Does anyone know how to disable character sounds and leave only music/sfx in the game?

EDIT: I’m aware of various MPQ readers available, but I would like to get more specific advice, such as “You need to get tool A, open file B, look for certain rows C and comment/replace them, save file and enjoy the game”. Last time when I checked the tools they only could read and export MPQ contents..

Answer

You probably need to “mod” Diablo 2. This includes getting a MPQ extractor, getting some silent .WAV files and putting them back into the archive. This will work on Battle.net too (if I recall correctly), as sound effects and music are client-side.

You can get started by visiting the Phrozen Keep, the site for Diablo II modding. You’re looking for
