    Isn't that already what is happening? I mean, there is a battle theme for boss battles used after all.

    I just used only one, because from all the default WC3 music, the orc victory theme was the only one that sounded remotely like a battle theme to me.
    I could maybe find one more for "harder" battles, but the default WC3 music doesn't offer much freedom there.

    Now, in a custom or modified MPQ, this is a totally different story.

    PursuitTheme (but that one is annoying) also sounds like combat music :) and perhaps Doom.mp3 if you pitch it a bit faster: p1.20 or something.

    Update: I am looking for a real 'Gaias Theme', but it isn't exactly easy. It is a little difficult as I am looking for something similar to
    Baldurs Gate 1 Main Theme or Neverwinter Nights2: That is, an oldschool RPG sounding theme.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZP7vWiaxw7Y

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmDyYORSPFY

    The problem is to find a track that is fairly epic while at the same time not too loud and intruding. The main theme is playing both in the Forest area of Gaias, the starting area, and the Alchemist mine. With that in mind, you can see why I cannot just select some heroic fanfare because that will only fit in the selection, but, in the other two areas, be very annoying. The search continues...

    EDIT: Also the sheer number of too sentimental free RPG-ish music tracks makes me sick :-D. It needs to be cool, down to earth. That doesn't mean it can't be epic, but not in the clich├ęd way. This really goes to show how professional game music composers are miles ahead of most of the free stuff you can find.

    Version 4 is released. It is not in MPQ form this time and thus will not work until version 1.2b is released. However, the new system that Zwiebelchen made (which allows local files) means that the file size of the addon is much, much smaller now and you don't need to replace anything. This means that the music addon only plays inside Gaias map, but in every other Warcraft 3 map the normal music will play.

    See this thread OP for information: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/gaias-retaliation-orpg-649/voice-acting-267502/

    Just to clarify: the soon to be released Mystic class Beta will include this and the highres pack support already, so you can already test it out there. :)

    Guys please give Rep if you like the mod :). If the creator of such a mod as this one has lots of rep, more people will believe it is quality made.

    Just wait until Gaias version 1.B (or the beta) comes out. Then it is simple:

    1. Download the music addon zip (version 4)

    2. Unpack to Warcraft III directory
