Sometimes the Battle Bards have to give attention to the "little MMOs" out there.  Maybe you've never heard of World of Warcraft, but you probably have played Warcraft: Orcs & Humans back in the day.  Well, this is the MMO that's set in the same universe, and believe it or not, it's got some great tunes.  Let's give it a listen, why not?

Funny. I love Nagrand, and Outland in particular is great fun to fly around (though I'd like walking in them a bit less). Terrokar is great, too. That said, Grizzy Hills and other random bits of Northrend are better, and bits of Pandaria are gorgeous.

Thing is, I don't have a lot of association between the soundtrack and places in the game. I don't usually play with the sound on at all. I've spent far more time listening to WoW music via soundtrack CDs, so I don't have much to associate with many tracks... at all.

There's definitely a strong correlation between music appreciation and game memories, I think.
