How do you play World of Warcraft?
Here’s a question for all you World of Warcraft players out there.
How do YOU play World of Warcraft?
I’m not asking *how-to-play* the game itself, but rather how you PREFER to play it?
Do you have the sound off? On? Do you have the sound on, but the music off? Do you prefer background noise? e.g. play with the TV on in the background?
For me I’ve always loved the in-game music, but now that I’ve been playing for over a year, I find that while I still enjoy the in-game music, it’s gotten to the point where I begin to anticipate which music I should be hearing in each zone.
So I began to experiment with various settings and right now I’m at the point where the music is off, but the sound effects are on. I usually use sound as the means to detect whether or not I’ve aggro’ed something.
Occasionally, if I’m playing alone (that is, not currently grouped with guildies) I’ve had iTunes on in the background dishing up my favourite tunes.
I’ve always had a ‘thing’ for epic movie scores. Think Hans Zimmer, John Williams, James Horner, Trevor Rabin, Steve Jablonsky etc. (Gladiator, Jurassic Park, Legends of the Fall, Armageddon, Transformers)
A guildie (Thanks Wildcleave) recently introduced me to a group called Two Steps from Hell. Now the name might sound a bit like a metal band, but I assure you they’re anything but!
If you run their music in the background, even your trips from the mailbox to the auction house will feel like epic acts of heroism!
You should go to itunes immediately and listen to:
- Protectors of Earth
- Love and Loss
- Heart of Courage
- Freedom Fighters
- Heaven and Earth
Here is one of their pieces entitled “Archangel”
So what do you listen to when you play World of Warcraft?
