    Hayes and Brower for me. Some of the stuff that Brower did for MoP is really good; some of the best music in the game. Blizzard is blessed with the music and sound team.

    They are all genious I mean really good music that gives one the chills and I can't pick one of them. Many many great tracks.
    David Arkenstone - Dwarf Tavern just one example of my fav pieces.

    Blizzard's best composer, by far, was Matt Uelmen. Hands down, no contest. None of the others even come close, and even outside Blizzard, he's one of the best in the industry.

    From that list, I'd say Jason Hayes. There are some really special, nostalgic, fitting music on his list.

    Jason Hayes has actually also done some music for Valve.

    My personal favorite is Jason Hayes. So glad he's back at Blizzard.

    Lets see if we get some new pieces for patch 5.3 by Hayes.

    That is a tough one. I'd say a three way tie between Jason Hayes, Russel Brower and David Arkenstone.

    Jason Hayes, hands down. David Arkenstone is also a great artist, really enjoyed his work in WoW Vanilla.

    My favourite:

    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    I really like Burning Crusade music for some reason - especially combined with an Outland sky backdrop!
