"Do You Hear What I Hear"

I keep hearing the sound effect that is played when you harvest a rune stone. It happens at random times in any place I am at rather its the forest or a city or in a building. It only plays a little bit of the sound effect not the whole thing. Not a big deal really but I was mainly wondering if anybody else is experiencing this bug?

    I've noticed this too.

    At first I thought it was someone harvesting a rune; since they tend to be somewhat hidden I assumed I hadn't seen it or them.

    But it's also happened in places that couldn't possibly happen, places where I have a clear view of everything around me and I'm 100% sure there are no runes or other players.

    I can't figure out what's causing it, but it seems to happen everywhere so my guess is it's a bug with ambient background noise.

    Yes! And I found where it's coming from. I seen someone gathering resources just over the horizon and it was coming from them. I have super hearing now in this Update.

    Is this true?!

    I could swear it was the Dark Brotherhood stalking me to kill me under the orders of Night Mother.
    If I die tomorrow I do not want to think of the game I could of played today, therefor I will play whatever I want today while securing a future to play in as well.

    A true gamer will think of all the possible outcomes and execute the one that is the hardest to accomplish.

    Could of been coincidence too, but someone was definitely gathering far far away from me at the exact time I heard the sound.

    Edit: could be linked to the camera bug that "zips" you across the map when you open your Inventory too. Because I remember opening my some panel and I had that bug happen and the camera started somewhere by where I seen that person gathering resources.

    @squshy7 , though I haven't been in that area in some time, I'm assuming he finally found time to finish this?

    Yeah, it's still happening. My brother and I tested it. Both were very, VERY far apart and I gathered a rune. He heard it as if he was right next to it. Maybe the currently being deployed patch will fix it.

    I thought I was going crazy. I'd spin around all paranoid-like trying to find the person popping out a rune right behind me.

    I just assumed that the runes made that noise any time you came near one now. Kinda like how the nirnroot makes that doorbell sound XD

    I was looking to see if any one had heard the unusual sound that I keep hearing it happens every now and then I haven't worked out if there a pattern
    But it sounds like the first Note or two of the minroot chime
    I was wondering if it represents a hidden item
    Like the dagger that rumbles/vibrats in shrimp if you pas a hidden item
    I had something like it on esp a dagger that vibrates so I think it would have been the same but I sold it by mistake and didn't realize :-(
