I use a lot of add-ons. Ones I’ve come to enjoy using are Outfitter, Pitbull 4 (much easier to use than 3), Bartender 4, Combuctor (for bags), MrTrader (a new tradeskill addon). But those are essentials.
My favorite, alright, a favorite, happens to be one called EpicMusicPlayer. If you’ve amassed a large number of cd’s over the years, like I have, and then converted them all to MP3 to listen to on nearly every generation of MP3 player there’s been, then you’d be in luck. The out-of-game playlist generator is very easy to use, and the in-game player is the best I’ve ever seen. (You can turn off the dancers.)
I’ve been listening to outside music while playing since my Molten Core days. If I was quiet in vent that was why. (Just chilling to the sounds of lounge music.) But it’s better to have in-game control over your music.
Anyway, since I don’t want to overwhelm the system with the 1000′s of mp3s I just put a few play lists together. I’ve got one of Chill (143 tracks), House (“Let this house be Progressive!” SM-Trax, and 136 other tracks), Buddha Bar (9 double cd’s worth, or 285 tracks), Chillout in Paris (98 tracks), B-Tribe (59 tracks (I should be in Ibiza, no?)), Collective Soul (Gel, and 46 other tracks), Latin (44 tracks, Caminando Por La Calle, by the Gypsy Kings, a favorite), African (96 tracks, Todii by Oliver Mtukudzi I really like), Green Day (48 tracks, American Idiot+), the 70′s (Kasey Casem works on in 135 tracks), Nirvana Lounge (108 tracks). And I still don’t have enough loaded.
Coming into the Argent Tournament grounds, flying in on a Griffin, circling above the ice and water, listening to Atman, Path of Love, is an experience. (Of course that entrance scene is pretty cool with any music.)
