Battle Bards Episode 68: Housing Themes

February 9, 2016

Battle Bards

A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

When an MMO player gets cozy in his or her in-game home, the sound is as essential to the ambiance as the decor. Not every game creates special music for player housing, but enough do that it’s attracted the Battle Bards to take a closer look at the topic. Housing music and collectible tracks? It’s starting to pick up momentum in MMOs, and Battle Bards is on the forefront of the revolution!

  1. The music of Karazhan fit the atmosphere like a glove. If you’re looking to impart a sense of Victorian-tinted, haunting doom, the harpsichord is the only way to go. I remember being blown away the first time I entered the raid. There wasn’t anything like it in the rest of WoW — and the way it changed as you ascended the tower was mind-blowing.
