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.

Another Around Azeroth

No sign of the photo I sent about the Terrapin 500, but they did post this one.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Wrapping things up

"Having been in the beta since the beginning, I've seen a lot of things," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "One thing that strikes me is the amount of detail given to this new world. This is a case in point. I was out wandering around, having done everything I could do in Shadowmoon at level 93. The road through Talador took me past these two hippos, excuse me, riverbeasts. There was a fishing pool near them so I stopped to fish. While fishing, I took some time to watch what had been programmed in front of me. These hippos were splashing each other. I have to admit that after fishing out the pool, I watched for a few minutes because it just seemed so fun.

I've seen a lot of this in the expac, from fireflies in my garrison to the names of two of the cats. (Dinah! One of the cats is named Dinah!) The attention to detail is incredible. Around every corner there seems to be something I need to stop and see. As the beta has expanded, almost every new build brings an "Ooooh!" moment.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the beta. I know there are people who find what Blizzard is doing to be dumb and are leaving, but I'm not one of them. I can't wait for this to go live if splashing hippos is any indication of what I'm going to find."

The Arrival of 6.0

Gimmlette a posted Thu at 14:54
WoWHead has posted the definitive guide to what is changing when Patch 6.0 drops. Jorlynn read an interview with Tom Chilton where he said 6.0 would drop a month before Warlords. That puts it probably Tuesday, October 14th, or there abouts. I know new items were datamined for Hallow's End. They were not level 100 items. Just upgrades to existing drops. Hallow's End follows close on the heels of October 14th.



You should follow the link or check the forum for the article and read it, particularly if you are looking for specific items or events. The big change is that Challenge Mode dungeons and their rewards are going away. Your officers discussed what we wanted to accomplish before the patch dropped and CM's were the top priority. We recognize this only appeals to a small group of people, but we've done a push like this before. Herald of the Titans, for example, was for a small group.

In an effort to get silver medals for people wanting CM's and to get the guild achievement, we will start running CM's every other day beginning next Monday night. The schedule here and in-game and on Facebook reflect what we plan to do between now and October 4th. In order to come along, you need to know how your gear works by going to The Proving Grounds and taking it for a spin. Your hit and expertise, once capped, don't change, but you may have to monkey around with reforging in order to get yourself capped in both. I strongly recommend, if you're going to do this, you have a gear set just for challenge mode. That way, you can reforge directly into what you feel is needed with how you play and how CM's work without messing with your raiding gear set.

Next, you should spend this weekend watching all the videos to get familiar with the strats for conquering CM's to get gold. Be mindful that we're SD and when they say "zig", we might find it better to "zag". But, the more information you have, even going so far as to take notes you can have next to the computer, the faster the group can be.

We need more invisibility potions. Since Insider posted their series to win at CM's, ghost mushroom prices have gone through the roof. We need ghost mushrooms and sungrass. If you can make any pots or can donate the raw materials, please put them on the first tab.

If you are interested in CM's, know that on those days we run them, we are only spending 90 minutes doing this. This is stressful and if we struggle to learn a dungeon, we could be in one for over 2 hours. That's too long. We'll give this a try in our inimitable style, but we're not going to bang our heads against a wall. If we are successful with one dungeon within that time frame, we'll move on to another.

We have more dps interested, currently, than tanks and healers. So, if  you have a medal in one dungeon, please be willing to sit one out so others can get that medal. Our goal, again, is silver, so we can get the mounts. If we get gold, wonderful, but silver will give us more breathing room for "Hold my beer and watch this".

There's a lot of information contained in that article. Take a few moments and read through it. Also please check the schedule. We will assess CM's on September 12th and decide if we will continue the push or if it's not something we can, realistically, do.

Gimmlette a LOL. If you want to send them to me, I can farm sungrass this weekend. Thanks loads.

What Does It Say About Us?

Gimmlette a posted Thu at 11:11


Wook at dat face. It's such a cute widdle face. Perfect face to sic a spider on.

So the timing of Wintergrasp last night wasn't in horde's favor. At the time we usually run events, we needed to be in Wintergrasp and horde needed to defend. While we had a number of SD members ready and willing to let Deathtacular win so we could run Vault of Archavon, they didn't get into the battleground and the Alliance who did were not receptive to entreaties. Hence, we lost Wintergrasp. Oh well. We spent the next 90 minutes running around the area, killing each other at various locations to get this achievement.



It says a lot about this guild when we are willing to get naked and allow ourselves to be repeatedly killed for the sake of PvP and an achievement. But oh did we have fun.



It's amazing how much web a spider can produce.



And if you ever wondered what it looks like after Mina stabs you with poisoned blades, here's a lovely screenshot.

Next up is to kill 20 mounted units with cannons. That's going to have to be done when WG is in session. We still want to run VoA horde side but it will probably be something spontaneous. If you would like to get your Wintergrasp Ranger achievement, let Mina know so we can put it on the schedule in the future.

Thanks, everyone, for coming along and dying. It was for a good cause.

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.
