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.

Two in One Week

So, I spend all day working, not lurking on Insider and this gets posted. Where is my tree photo for next week?

Around Azeroth: Because I'm tacky

"Because you can find garrison resources most anywhere, I spend a lot of time poking around in all the buildings," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "(Yes, I know about the maps you can get, but that kind of takes the fun out of 'Oooh. What's in here?') I was questing in Pinchwhistle Point and ran up into the main building. To quote George Takei, 'Oh myyyy.' Complete with door beads, I'm not sure if this is an homage to the 1960s or just bad taste. It does need the addition of a lava lamp and mirror tile to be complete, but this makes me thankful for dwarven decorating tastes."

One More Week

Now that this photo's been published, I need to send the one of us in TK. 

Around Azeroth: One bloomin' blossom

"We realize you posted a photo of the core hound mounts already, but how about a circle of core hounds?" asks submitted Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) took a bunch of guildies into Molten Core and got them mounts. They all went to my garrison afterward to pick them up and decided the fountain needed a steam bath. (Thanks for nothing, Blizzard, for moving the outhouses outside the walls. Grumble.) There's been a lot of complaining about how you can't fly in Draenor but, personally, I don't mind it, except when I want to stand on top of my fountain to get a circle of guild members on core hounds."

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary, Spectacular Death. Today is, officially, our 7th anniversary. When Superkind and I were standing in Goldshire, paying people 2 gold to sign our guild petition (That was a lot of money in BC times, for a low level toon.), I had no idea we'd have our own web site, Facebook page or Twitter account, let alone that we'd be looking back at 7 years of spectacular deaths and wondering where we can go in year 8 for more of the same. Thank you, all, for being a part of this journey and here's to more years of "Hold my drink and watch this". 
Tarsan 7 out of 10 years since WoW went live is amazing. I can't say if there are any big guilds out there that have been going ...
Seldaria I just wanted to wish you all a very happy Anniversary. I loo forward to meeting you all in game, and spending the next ...

Steaming the Fountain

Gimmlette a posted Dec 11, 14
Now isn't this a thing of beauty?



It took three (3) hours, but we completed Molten Core and got a whole bunch of people their core hound mounts. We had all 4 tanks needed, as well as half of the healers and a quarter of the dps. All these people made the Core a guild run and the bank picked up a nifty 1k gold for it. Everyone got their "fire" hat and, wonder of wonders, I got the elusive pet. I have to say, if we hadn't been talking about it prior to the Ragnaros kill, I wouldn't have known what it was. I'm hoping one of you gets the elusive enchant, too. 

Corien was not able to go and Jorlynn couldn't finish the run due to the late hour. Both will be heading into the Core to do this. Jorlynn might be going as early as this weekend. Corien won't be going until after this weekend. If you want to go with guild members, please talk to either of them. We had stupid in our run but our sheer size allowed us to kick the offending raider. So, the more people we have in a run, the worse off the raiding trolls are. Remember, we don't feed the trolls in this guild. We report and, if necessary, vote kick. 

To do Molten Core, you need to be level 100 and have an ilevel of 615. Come January, after the Core event is over, we need to find a place where everyone who got mounts can be for what will be a most awesome guild photo, more awesome than the one above. I'm happy not being able to fly in Draenor, except at times like this when I really wanted to land on the fountain and shoot down. 

Kick the guildies was an amazing success. Huge thank yous go out to Skipkick (Kickskip), Lasts (Laststhebest) and Mooch (Elitistmooch) for making level ones and to Squid who let us kick his main. I started the bidding and it quickly escalated. Bear won the first round at 7,000 gold. He promptly recited one of his famous poems before kicking Squid who ran away shouting, "I'M FREEEEEEEE!!!!!" It was hilarious. (Some day, someone needs to start collecting all of Bear's poetry for a book. It's always so inventive.) Of course I had to invite him back because he knows things and I can't have that information loose out in the world. 

We started the bidding again and it jumped, particularly after Skip started in on Thollie (Jorlynn) about her healing abilities. I believe there was some pooling of resources and she won the chance to do the next kick with a bid of 11,000 gold. Skip was promptly kicked, much to the assembly's delight. 

Final bidding started and Mooch, who had been trying to convince people that I should be kicked for the paltry sum of 10k, finally put that money into kicking someone. Lasts was the only one left so, with much fanfare and a countdown, Lasts got the boot. Lasts got his revenge my matching Mooch's total and then kicking Mooch. He ran into the center of Stormwind and told Trade chat how he'd just paid 10k to SD's bank and got /gkicked but that it was so much fun, everyone needed to apply. I guess a couple more guildies chimed in about how awful the guild was but everyone needed to apply. 

In the end, 38,000 gold was raised for the bank. This is good because, at the start of the evening's festivities, the bank stood at 39,100 gold. I really, really miss Cash Flow, although I do understand why Blizzard removed it. In addition to what was raised, we received 18,000 from guildies who wish to be anonymous. As we look ahead to having current content raiding on the schedule more than, say, every 3 weeks, having the bank total up over 60,000 means I can offer more money to you for repairs. I like being able to do that. 

Just a reminder, our anniversary events are in full swing now. Dragon Soul tonight, followed by a grand tour around Draenor. I'll need a couple of death knights with path of frost. Plus, if  you have the Azure Waterstrider mount, that will be useful. We will be paying our respects to Robin Williams' genie off the coast of Talador. 

There will be a raid of Highmaul on Saturday. There were a handful of people who weren't able to come last week so I want to make sure they get into the raid. We'll actually be using strats this time. 

Don't forget, Sunday is the guild Christmas party in Ironforge. Please bring a wrapped gift for the gift exchange. 



Wrapping paper is on tab 1 of the guild bank. You can bring anything that can be wrapped from gray to purple items. We are starting at 8:30 p.m. to allow people who usually leave at 9-ish on Sunday night to participate. We meet in the Explorer's Hall. 

Lots of fun stuff in the upcoming week.

Saftey Dance

Thanks to the authentication issues yesterday, Minaithelan got the other music video done. 



Dorelei I love the dancing Arthas' (Arthai?) the best!
