Hey again guys! Just had another one of my 'theories' so I've been thinking;

Wouldn't it be great if there was a sort of RP skill line devoted to playing instruments?

I mean come on, I can't be the only one who'd like to learn some classic TES songs and play them on my lute or drum!? If I'm going to explore Tamriel, I'm going to explore it in style! I think it would also go down well with RPers and people who want bard characters.

Your views please?

I'd like to be able to play some 'traditional Tamrielic tunes' but I'd also like to freestyle ;) Maybe if they made it so you could press a button and it would play a certain note, but they gave you the notes for the tunes.

Yes! They NEED to add these!
It would be amazing to just walking to a tavern sheath your weapon and play the traditional TES songs!

So long as musical instruments don't turn into damage dealing weapons.

It could be a good buffing skill line.

I agree, successfully playing a song (or just playing a whole song from an animation that takes 30s to 1 min) would provide some sort of buff... Also free styling would be great too, because then you could march into battle in Cyrodiil playing the bagpipes or something (although bagpipes would not be lore friendly).

I'm pretty sure they had something like this in LoTRO but I could never figure it out.

you mean like the ocarina from zelda? with a button to change octaves? freestyle that snuff up!


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

I would LOVE for the them to make an instrument skill line, but make it an offensive skill line. Like along the lines of a Bard, that would be epic.

For anyone who played LOTRO, this would be awesome!
I loved playing tunes in lotro.

It would be cool if you could use it in PvP as an area of effect buff for all of your nearby allies, sort of a morale type of thing. But in doing this you're made a target and have no way of defending yourself.

Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better

And the temples of his Gods."

Nothing like having a captain play The A-Team-theme on his bagpipes before charging a keep in the Ettens.

Like a bard? I think that would be an excellent idea! While hundreds of people are fighting on the battleground, I'll be jamming out in the background. Every concert will be a deadly battle between instrument users.
