The discord client depends on the PulseAudio API and will not support sound without it.  The ebuild should make a determination:
sound use flag should be checked
If sound=no, do nothing and keep /usr/bin/discord as symlink to /opt/discord/Discord
If sound=yes, pulseaudio use flag should be checked.
If pulseaudio=yes, depend on pulseaudio, keep /usr/bin/discord as symlink.
If pulseaudio=no, depend on apulse and /usr/bin/discord should be a simple script that launches discord through apulse. (I am using it with apulse and it works well)

This is probably the underlying cause of previous bug 658082.

Could this be the cause the mic sound stopped working during calls?
It works fine during mic test but not in calls, also there is no sound icon during manual volume but on auto it shows the icon as if it omits sound but there is nothing there.
