I must know: was there combat music?

Well Lok1, if you've been asking that same question everywhere for a year, maybe the answer is: BioWare hasn't made that info public. And it leads me to believe you're a bit neurotic as well. Considering the game isn't even ready for beta yet, the devs will understandably hold back juicy info like that.

As far as this being a WoW-killer.... You said it, not BioWare/LucasArts. Believe it or not, there will be things after WoW. *gasp* I know, scary.

I am neurotic, in the role-playful relative microcosm of this restricted play that is opinion boards.
I expected this answer, naturally i've already received it, and will answer it as i already did before and anticipated above: we should feel a bit silly in realizing we talk about... nothing. And in the worst case people talk about secondary elements like name of planets and name of the classes because... well "we assume other things work in the usual fashion, no? That's how all MMO's work, right? You do quests to get gear and gain levels, you go to raids in the end to kill bosses that give uber-gear. That's the genre, right? Since MMO's were born in 2004".

As for the "yes it took things after WoW" subject, distinctions are necessary. There's things that don't necessarily make a carbon copy, and things that do. Quests don't necessarily make a clone, but so far, that's what happened for all AAA MMO's. WoW type of Quests generally force a title into the exact same gameplay, no matter how many superficial changes you SHOW to suckers. You can come up with different combat style, different cameras, even different PvP, but if in the game you

1-Look for exclamation marks, take quests off all NPC's in an area inside a map
2-go where the marker tells you, farm the needed mob
3-go back to NPCs to get the addictive pills/reward(gear, equipment)
4-get to another map, go back to point 1

IMO, IT IS A CLONE.
