For me, there's always been something heartwrenching about the strings anthem of Grizzly Hills. I really wish there'd been more excuse to hang out there (like a raid entrance at the dead world tree).

Oh, yes, definitely! It reminds me of "Ashokan Farewell", which is best known as the title theme for Ken Burns' Civil War miniseries. The Grizzly Hills theme has the same contemplative, slightly wistful feel to it for me.As an aside, "Baba Yetu" never fails to give me the shivers. Man, now I want to play Civ again and have Leonard Nimoy tell me that I've discovered metalworking.

Frankly, there is a sound effect inserted into the zone which pisses me off. It's the rolling "Rrrrrrrrrrrr" every few moments which sounds like a bear aggro'ing.It screws with the sad-sounding music, and I don't understand how no one found it annoying after awhile before launching.

hehe - I live a stone's throw from the Ashokan Reservoir that the song is named after. It holds water that, via Aquaduct, goes to New York City. Why's funny: There was no Reservoir in the Civil War. It wasn't built until the early 1900's. But seriously, when I first played Grizzly Hills in the Wrath Beta, my only thought was "Someone working for Blizz grew up in the Catskills. The land, the trees, it's just like going through the area IRL."
