I’ve been toying with the idea of linking a battle cry to certain abilities for sometimes fun times! I obviously couldn’t do it every time I mash a certain button, but maybe a macro for when my characters are in the mood to yell out during their attacks or heals.
Since my characters are mostly named after classical music composers I had this horrible and yet slightly awesome/nerdy idea that I would macro battle cries based on their classical musicians. For example, my Rogue is named Haydn (pronounced “hide in”) and the real Haydn composed a piece of music called the “Surprise Symphony” because it was quiet and then would have really loud bursts interjected. So I thought that I should macro “SURPRISE SYMPHONY!” to my Ambush attack since I’m a subtlety rogue. He he!
Edward Elgar wrote some priesty type things including one piece that has much potential to be linked to a spell that I might use like Divine Hymn or PW: Barrier. The song is called “Land of Hope and Glory” which seems sort of appropriate for PW: Barrier, since that would be the land of hope!
I don’t know many pieces by Kalinnikov and while Rossini had lots of pieces most were operas and I’m not sure which might be suitable as a battle cry. I thought maybe just having him yell something in latin which could be “demonic” sounding but also one of his opera names. He he! Or maybe “The Touchstone” (in Latin/Italian) for when he does soulstones or healthstones.
Sibelius is famous for his Finlandia, but he has something that is boomkin-ish in his “Nightride and Sunrise” piece. Again, working it in and linking it to a specific spell is the tricky part. There are also pieces on Wood Nymphs and one called “Oceanides” which could be tied to typhoon.
So there’s a lot of potential out there. I might have to play around with it and do a little more research, but it might workout as a nice setup!
