Welcome One And All To Spectacular Death's Website.

Spectacular Death (A-Llane-US) is the total WOW experience with lots of fun at a casual pace. We see and go to all places in the WOW universe from Classic to current content, PvP and Arena. This is no-pressure raiding at its finest with friendly, helpful people interested in working through all WOW has to offer. We will never have a realm first in any endgame, but we will have the most fun when we arrive. Our "race" to see everything is more of a saunter with an emphasis on fun. Our guild motto is "Here. Hold my drink and watch this," so you can see where our emphasis lies.

This guild is not for everyone, however. You must review the Code of Conduct before asking to join. It is also recommended that you read our Raiding and Loot Guidelines.

For any questions about the above information, please talk to Gimmlette or any officer. Officers are listed under the "SD Guide" section of the web site menu. If you are interested in hopping on the bus for the ride, please fill out our application. It's under the "Join Us" button at the upper right. You will be contacted by Gimmlette or the membership officer after the application is received.

A Little Deathtacular PvP

Wednesday. 



It promises to be a fun time. People will get achievements and then we hope horde can take Wintergrasp so Deathtacular can run VoA. The fun begins at 9 p.m.

To Answer A Question

Gimmlette ao posted Fri at 11:58
Every so often in chat, someone will ask about the distribution of classes and races in the guild. I haven't done pie charts representing those numbers since last year so I thought I'd do that to show amounts of each class and race in the guild. I did not break it out further into "how many gnome warlocks". All the data is based off roster information from the Battle Net site. 

First of all, here is the break down of races in SD. 



Humans lead the way with 121. Dwarves have 61. Night elves and gnomes have 91. Draenei have 79. Worgen have 71 and Pandaren have 60. 

Here is the class break down. 



We have 63 monks and 62 hunters. (Must recruit moar hunters. Twitch.) Priests are next at 57, which surprised me. Death knights and druids are at 55. Paladins are at 54. Warriors are at 46. Mages are at 44. Warlocks are at 43. Shaman are at 37 and rogues are at 33.

I don't know how these numbers compare with numbers Blizzard maintains. I remember reading some time ago that rogues had the lowest numbers. I think it's interesting to see how our roster stacks up. I can't do a male/female distribution easily. That would be an interesting graphic. If you want to do that, you'll need to look at each toon in the roster because there isn't a sort function for that on the Battle Net site. 

Having done this, I thought it would be interesting to see how Deathtacular breaks down. Here is the chart for races. 



Blood elves are the most popular with 29 toons. After that comes tauren at 19, orcs at 13, trolls at 12, undead at 10, goblins at 9 and pandaren at 2. 

The class break down is this. 



On the horde side, we have the most hunters with 14. Next is shaman at 12. Then it's the death knights and paladins at 10. Warlocks have 9. Druids, warriors, monks and rogues all have 7. Mages have 6 and priests have 5. This is quite interesting, don't you think? 

Another question I get asked is "What does Deathtacular need?" DT isn't like SD in that we don't really play most of our time over there. It was created to be part of our stated goal, "To provide the total WOW experience within a guild setting". If you want to see the horde side, you can and know that anyone who logs into DT is someone you know from SD. We absolutely do not recruit horde side. You must have a toon in SD to put one in DT. 

That being said, I was looking at the achievements and it seems we are a monk shy of A Class Act. We just need a monk at level 85 for that achievement. That will get us a Shroud of Cooperation. The "big" one is Stay Classy. That will take awhile for us to get. We need to have one of each race and class at level 85. I have a dwarf mage I rarely play who was created for SD to get that achievement. If we were to get that in Deathtacular, that would give us the 8th bank tab. So, if you are looking for something DT needs, my suggestion would be to take a look at the classes and see which class doesn't have a toon at level 85 and level it. It's not a priority to get that bank tab so make whatever you'd like. 

This should answer a bunch of questions. It's always fun to see how the numbers fall.

Faience Extremely interesting!
We were short a tank to start the Siege, Wing 3 run tonight so we decided to run around killing the trash. (Stupid training dummies just would.not.die.) The first thing we decided to do was have Ceerise blow her Battle Horn in the room right as you come in. It attracts all mobs in a 40 yard range. What could possibly go wrong with this idea? 

The first attempt, we were just inside the room and that 40 yards didn't grab much. We were able to dps the mobs down very quickly and easily. So we moved farther into the room. 



Whenever you're ready, Ceerise. 

Here they come!



Round 'em up, Kamingi! Oh wait. There are some Kor'kron Skullcrushers in this mix. Um...



We got 4 of them down. The rest? Well, let's just say it was spectacular. 



It was a great, silly, way to start the raid. Definitely one of our, "Hold my drink and watch this" moments. 

Malkorok got to 52%. We'll be back in Siege on Sunday. You all come along. A few more people and he's a goner.

Bits

With the news that yet another Sea Turtle was fished up late Monday evening, the racing field is getting crowded. All racers should be in Ironforge ready to go by 8:45 p.m. on Saturday. This will give us a chance to write down everyone's name so the "announcer" can properly type that in introductions. 

The race starts at 9 p.m., or shortly thereafter. It's 5 laps of Ironforge. Top 3 winners get gold. Please avoid your speed boosts so the field is just a bunch of people using their mouses to guide turtles around Ironforge. Be prepared for some craziness. If you have fireworks to set off as the racers come by, bring them along. 

Once the winners have had their photos taken, we will adjourn to Dalaran and do it all again. If you'd like, you can race on your horde toon. I will be bringing Heilandcoo to the Dalaran race. Remember, everyone who comes gets 25 gold. If you come in costume, you get 75 gold. Need help putting together a costume? Have I got a deal for you. 



Stuff, lots and lots of stuff stored off site; tuxedo pants and shirts, white dresses and red suits, along with other things. Plus, our guild tailors can make a lot of things. Shirts are for sale in Stormwind at the tailoring shop along the canal. A costume is not required. You can race very well in your current armor, but having a costume ups the "What the..." quotient in both Ironforge and Dalaran. 

Are you looking for a rare battle pet? Look no further than a rodent crate. 



This item is only available to people in Lion's Landing in Krasarang. You can see it costs 2000 of the dominion marks which you get off NPCs involved in the quests from Lion's Landing. Once purchased and put on the ground, it summons Sumprush Rodents, also known as 'rodents of unusual size'. The crate lasts for 20 minutes and the area around Lion's Landing gets filled with rodents. You must battle them to capture one. 

Jorlynn, Ollivor and I have enough marks for 3 crates. We'd love to use these for people to acquire their rodents (thereby getting them out of our bags). If you're interested, please let me know so we can make sure to coordinate purchase. If you have not done any questing with Lion's Landing, you won't be able to capture a rodent. 

Last Friday, we paid a visit to Orgrimmar, again. We heard a rumor that the goblin bankers were taking a cut of materials stored in banks and that Garrosh wasn't inclined to stop the practice. 



That's our story and we're sticking to it, hard-core PvP guild notwithstanding. An hour after we'd been driven from the bank, some of our skeletons still remained. 

I'm still looking for hordies, level 60+, to run the raids for achievements. 



Only Magister's Terrace is left from Burning Crusades and then we can plow through Wrath 5-mans. We need 10 people to get the achievement for classic and BC dungeons. Our last "Achievement Hordes" night was pre-empted by Siege, Wing 2 and General Nazgrim. Watch for another few more to pop up on the schedule between now and Patch 6.0.
