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.

Around Azeroth Beta Edition: Keep your eyes on the road

"I'm really enjoying the scenery in Draenor," writes beta tester Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "I have several screenshots I could see printing as art because some places are just beautiful. I like what the designers have done with draenei architecture, although there are some things I can't unsee now. I was running up to this building to complete a quest and came to a dead stop. It's looking at me; two eyes and a hat and and empty socket for a nose. Now that I've seen a face with this building, I'm seeing it in other buildings of this style. They're watching us. Where's my tinfoil hat?"

Pet Battles!

We're In the Beta.

Huzzah! Spectacular Death is in the beta. Most everyone who is in the beta can invite people into the guild. Mina and I aren't sure why some people are exalted or revered with SD while some people, like me, are just noobs, but we'll take it. I wound up having to buy a new tabard because my fancy tabard wouldn't work. I don't have the "rep" required to be able to wear it. And that's something you need to remember. If you are wearing a rep based tabard when you join SD, the beta removes a lot of your rep gains. It doesn't seem very organized in how it does it. I couldn't wear my Sporereggar tabard anymore. 

But the point is, we are in the beta. I'd like to know if there is another guild that is so represented. Also, remember to take screenshots and post them to our beta folder. Also post your impressions. I feel so complete now that I have my guild tabard.

TRY TO TAKE OVER THE BETA!!!

I just cannot squeal with happiness any louder. I can't believe how many of you have beta keys! I realize it's possibly random as to who gets in and who doesn't, but let's believe that Blizzard likes us, they really, really like us and they want us to be in the beta en masse. 

So, it started with Mina and me. As of this morning, I know that Squid, Toto, Dore, Jorlyn, Ollivor, Resetta and Faience got in. I defy, defy, I tell you, to find a more attractive group than Spectacular Death members. I do wonder how many guild have this many people in the beta. 

Anyway, I purchased a guild charter. Mina's signed it. I need 3 more signatures and we will take over the beta or at least have a major presence there. At 8:30 p.m. tonight, please meet in front of Stormwind by the guild hall. In case you've never noticed it, it's the building with the lion out front. You'll be near the giant Khadgar who doesn't look at all like this guy from when Mina and I started. 



We'll get the charter signed and then give me about 5 minutes to scroll through all the tabard offerings to recreate ours and, boom, we are there. Plus, I'll need the obligatory screenshot. 

I'm just so, so excited that we'll be a presence in the beta. Remember that we have a forum thread where you can post your screenshots. I think you will like the opening sequence, for those who just got here. I'm really interested in the guild achievements, too. Maybe we can try to get a couple to see how they work.

Around Azeroth: A parting shot

"It can be hard, sometimes, to not ascribe emotions or feelings to pixels in a video game," writes submitter Gimmlette. "If the designers have truly done their job, we will have an emotional connection to an NPC or an event; a connection not of the 'OMG! They're changing everything!' sort. Vol'jin being announced as leader of the Horde is something that produced emotion.

Spectacular Death (A-Llane) did an event where they went around the world killing the bosses their raid leader, Tarsan, wanted to see die. He's stepping down, as the Army is sending him to Belgium, which will make leading raids a bit frustrating. So a bunch of us cleared some raids up to the final boss. We killed a boss and then moved on. One of those was Kil'Jaeden in Sunwell. With 18 guild members, KJ didn't last very long. A number of people had never seen him and I think his arrival is one of the best boss arrivals in the game. We offed him in about three and a half minutes.
I take a lot of screenshots of guild events and this was no different. Here, KJ is being pulled back into the Sunwell. That's Tarsan to the right. Shoulders on fire, KJ is struggling to stay outside, to not be consumed. It's just a game, but this photo struck me. Is he thinking of lost causes? Is he thinking of his imprisonment and doom?>After he disappeared, we started wondering; Warlords is about the draenei and the orcs. Burning Crusades brought us blood elves and their story. Will they figure into Warlords at any time?

And finally, the answer to the unspoken question is no. Thori'dal did not drop. That would have been a great stepping down gift."
