Something that I enjoyed quite a lot actually in LOTRO & Asheron's Call 2 was the implementation of playable instruments. It added a great amount of atmosphere to places of crowded areas where you could hear really professional people play their instruments. This would of course just be a commodity so people wouldn't have to do it for any reason other than being praised for sounding awesome. You could also allow people to mute people if you don't want to hear them if they sound bad or w/e & are just trolling with spamming all the keys. Do you think there should be playable instruments? If so, what kinds do you want there to be? Happy

I also would like to note I already made a discussion called The Sounds of War. That being things you would use in a war scenario like war horns - drums to march - trumpets.. etc. This is all more about the instruments that you can play songs with like guitars and stuff similar to LOTRO made instruments. =P

I like this idea, it has always somewhat frustrated me when there are musical instruments in a game but nobody plays them. For instance, there are many in Everquest 2 but they are for scenery, not playable - so I buy a music box or get a music globe and place that near the instruments so I can activate it and get the illusions that the instruments are being played.

Aren't there games also that have a Bard class and his musical playing actually enhances or invigorates his fellows who hear it - like in battle and such? I wouldn't mind that either. Casual musicians in gatherings &/or class musicians who enhance others fighting ability - the more musicians the better!

i think it would be awesome with instruments. Just think, theres this huge, bloody war going on in Cyrodiil, people are getting slaughtered right before your eyes and you here the peaceful, softening sound of a lute or a flute. or if your going into war theres someone might play the drum to make you all sound more threatening.

i think instruments would add a very good element to the game. If there were instruments, they should just be the original ones like the lute, flute and drum but the designs of these objects are changed for each race. Like the nordic instruments looks they do in TES V Skyrim, but the ones in blackmarsh look a little trashed and trown together but these changes of the designs make each races instruments sound slighty different.

I think it would be great!!

oh well, that would be even more cool because if there like big war drums and they go into war with them that would sound pretty scary but awesome

I think instruments should definitely be added. Maybe make it an actual complex system where you have to play the song correctly. Maybe a songwriting mechanic where you can share songs.

It would be nice for immersion and endgame content. Imagine sitting in a pub with your comrades after a big victory, dancing to songs played by other players. :)

It would be a most delightful skill if when flagging yourself as a bard it made you completely immune to pvp, so you could freely do what bards do best - follow and torment your opponents with song Cute_winking

Haha, people would end up just muting you. There really has to be the option to mute when you think about it, otherwise it'd be annoying & you'd just get a bunch of people spamming random notes. I do like the idea that there be instruments for war though. I think it'd be cool to have war drums up to a battle, or even a horn or something like that. Smiling

All conquering armies have marched to music.

I'd like to see a war horn. It would be bad ass to hear a war horn then see a mass of nord warriors come charging into battle.

Would at least be nice to have a emote like /warhorn /trumpet or /wardrum or something of the sort for each race.

Inside a tavern it would be great. Someone starts playing on a lute, people don't like it and we can have ourselves a brawl.
Outside i do not want it. Less COWBELL!;)
