Spectacular News

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 together. 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 as well.

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.

Caption This

Gimmlette a posted Jan 7, 18

It's been a couple years since we did the contest. Here's how it works. 

Here's the photo. 

Your task is to come up with a caption, or two, or three, or more. Captions must be PG. You'll post them to this forum thread. Captions posted here do not count. Each caption needs to be a separate entry. I'll be judging this contest. First place gets 500 gold. Second place gets 400 gold. Third place gets 300 gold. Yes, there can be ties. 

Contest begins today and ends on Sunday, January 21st. Winners will be announced on Monday, January 22nd. Good luck.

Tmog Contest Winners

Gimmlette a posted Jan 7, 18

Four people entered looks in the December 2017 transmog contest. The these was "Ten Years of Gears". Your transmog need to have a piece from each of the expansions:  Classic, Burning Crusades, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, and Legion. Tarsan was the judge. Here he is judging Winterlight, who was the winner of the December contest. 

Second place went to Minaithalen. Third place was a tie between Rolandgilead and Gimmlette. 

January's transmog contest theme is courtesy of Silverkeg. His idea is to make a transmog that looks good in the dark. Here is an example. 

No enchants will be allowed. The glow needs to come from the pieces themselves. Some items "stand out", shall we say, even without glowing. We will not be meeting in our usual place for this contest. We will be meeting in Ironforge on January 26th. There are a couple places where darkness rules. The contest will also be starting one half hour earlier, 8:30 pm, so we can run Antorus afterwards. 

Congratulations Winter and I look forward to seeing what transmogs you can come up with for January. 


It's Going Away

Gimmlette a posted Dec 26, 17

It might be a spoiler, and you know I'm slightly averse to spoilers, but I feel this is something important. Argus will be leaving our skies with the upcoming patch. 

In the forum, I started a thread to document Argus from all the zones where you see it. I've posted a few, but, sadly, a lot of Azeroth is missing. As you are out and about, if you would stop and take a photo of Argus in the sky, I'd appreciate that. Kun-Lai, Vale of Eternal Blossoms, Dun Morogh, High Mountain, Loch Modan, and above, Burning Steppes, have photos I've taken. I know I have taken more, but just haven't gotten around to posting them. I'd like an album of photos from all applicable zones. If you don't know how to post to the web site, you can post them to Facebook and I'll get them up here, with proper credit. I've grown so used to seeing Argus in the sky, it's going to be odd not seeing it there. 


Perki I have a bunch of shots, I can post them (and try to figure out where they are.)

Transmog Contest Upcoming

Gimmlette a posted Dec 25, 17

Remember, the December terrible transmog contest is fast approaching. The theme is "Ten Years of Gears". 

You need to have a piece of gear from each expansion: Classic, Burning Crusades, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor and Legion. 

There is a change of judges. Tarsan, who won second place last month, will be the judge. Your list of gear should go to him. 

We've been asked why submit a list. This is akin to an entry fee. If you take the time to submit a list, we know you're vested in the contest. It takes just a few minutes to jot down your items and send them to the right person. 

Meet in Stormwind at 9 p.m. in the same place we always meet. Yes, you can bring a horde toon, if you like. This is NOT my transmog for the contest. I have an even better one picked out. 


We come to the end of Ten Days of Spectacular Death. We started at the end of Burning Crusades and are, quite happily, moving into the waning months of Legion, looking ahead to the Battle For Azeroth. I don't have an exact time for when our anniversary actually occurs. It was evening and I was spending my hard earned gold to get signatures on the charter. Amaera is the only person left who originally signed the charter. Back then, you needed 10 signatures and I know the charter cost way more than it does now. My co-founder, Superkind, claimed not to have much gold on him, so I paid for the charter and paid the lowbies in Goldshire who signed the charter. Back then, you could buy a signature for 2 gold. 

I think Wrath of the Lich King had been announced. I don't remember for sure. There was a column in the old WowInsider online magazine where you could submit recruiting statements and we decided to go for it. We advertised that we were new and we were looking to do old content because none of us had seen it and we knew guilds were not looking to do that stuff. They were gearing up in Black Temple and Sunwell for the coming expansion. We wanted to see Molten Core and Ahn Qirag. WowInsider published an article on us under their "15 Minutes of Fame" column. I remember, I was questing with Super in Shadowmoon Valley. He wasn't yet 70 and I was helping. (The Teron Gorefiend quest line was awesome.) I almost didn't believe the person who contacted me from Insider when they whispered who they were. 

As one could say, the rest is history. We've seen those classic raids and everything else, with the exception of the end of Kil'jaden in Tomb and the end of Antorus. Not bad for a little guild built on a premise of "going everywhere and doing everything" but being home by sundown. Some of you have been around for what would be considered a "very long time", by the ephemeralness of online gaming. We've had our ups and downs but we keep going. 

On Friday, December 15th, we're going to start a new Antorus because, although we did incredibly well, there's gear to get. 

This time, we can use strats for the bosses we've downed, but, maaaaayyybbbbeeeee we won't because we did so very well without strats. It appears we were 4th on the server to down the first boss. I'll take it. Guild Ox doesn't show we did it without strats, but we know. Meet by the raid entrance at 8:45. If you need help getting there, please be in Dalaran for summons. 

However long you've been here, I hope you agree it's been fun. Here's to another 10 years of Spectacular Death. I've always said, I'm going to play until the braziers go out in Ironforge.
