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.

for more hijinks and fun.

Referencing a Classic

Gimmlette a posted Mon at 11:38

So after "World Lizard Day", I had to send in a new screenshot. I'm slowly going through shots saved on my desktop as being meaningful to the life of the guild. I had saved this shot, meaning to send it in but never got around to it when we did the event, way back in April. 

I like to come up with captions, although I have sent in the barebones of a caption and let Elizabeth Wachowski flesh it out. I was talking with Amaera while sorting photos on Saturday and it hit me; the perfect caption.

 

In case you don't know the reference, here is the song. It's long been a jazz standard. For the record, Ingrid Bergman says, "Play It, Sam." not "Play it again, Sam." 

Now, we need to come up with new screenshots.

Many Successes and a Hiccup

Gimmlette a posted Sun at 12:22

August has been quite the month for downing bosses. Last night, we finally got Oregorger. 

That just leaves Heart of the Mountain and we'll have finished that wing of Blackrock Foundry. We didn't do too badly with the last boss. There's a lot of stuff going on and it's just going to take learning the fight and what we can and can't do. 

Gruul, meanwhile could probably be considered "on farm". We do lose about a third of the raid each kill, but he is a one shot. If we can get the deaths down, we can look at doing the achievement, The Iron Price

Highmaul has been cleared. 

All this month, we've been running Wednesdays with Pepe. We did Highmaul LFR in one night. 

Azram was asked why someone with his ilevel was tanking Highmaul. His response? "Look for guild members. They all have Pepe on their heads. It's a Pepe run." We have one more Wednesday event planned. If you need certain 5-mans for Pepe or bosses or raids, let us know. By the end of the month, people coming along should be very close to or have, the achievement and Pepe's whistle. 

 We do Kazzak every week, usually on Tuesday with the reset. We were hoping to get Throne of Thunder completed this month. We had a large number of people who responded to our need to get Dark Animus downed. 

You see it drops a pet, which Gazzlo won. We then proceeded to down Iron Qon and the Twin Consorts. 

We are up to Lei Shen now. We tried on Friday but didn't have enough bodies. We're going to put this in the schedule for September. I don't want us moving forward through heroic Siege of Orgrimmar until we've defeated heroic Throne. Lei Shen will need 20+ bodies again. There are too many mechanics which need to be adhered to for us to go below 20 people to get it done. Watch the schedule and please come along. Once we get Lei Shen downed, we can access Ra-Den. 

Finally, we gave it a good shot but Challenge Mode dungeons are not friendly to us. 

If people want to run them, we can do them. You'll need to ask because we're just too frustrated with how they are in WoD to want to dedicate an event to them. We will, with some of our 5-man nights, attempt mythic level of dungeons. If you'd like specific dungeons, please talk to Red. He'll be happy to organize events or a run for what people need. 

Speaking of what people need, we're looking ahead in this coming week, to September's schedule. If there is something you'd like, please let us know. 

Also, GameVox did a major update this past Tuesday. You may need to uninstall and reinstall the program. They gave us unlimited slots so there's no longer a discussion of how many slots to buy each month as well as dropped the monthly cost. 

Remember, the 4th Annual Terrapin 500 is this Saturday. You need a sea turtle to participate. Meet in Ironforge at 8:45. Come in costume and get 75 gold. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place get 150, 125 and 100 gold. You will want to come to Ironforge just to watch and hop into Vox to hear the announcer call the race. All eyes are on Basol to see what he wears this year.

Ollivor I look forward to running these in very near future
Maximooch Glad to see you down all these bosses!
Ilrisse Sorry I wasn't there, but the Nap Fairy kept hitting me with a sock full of sand all day yesterday! Awesome you all fin ...

Some Photos I've Found

Gimmlette a posted Sat at 13:37

I keep meaning to post photos and then life gets in the way. For example, here's the F.A.R.T. in action. 

That's the Corrupted Fire Hawk. You get it by doing all the achievements in Firelands. Here's another view. 

Aren't they pretty? If you would like your very own Corrupted Fire Hawk, the Firelands Achievement Raid Team would be happy to get it for you. The hard one is Only the Penitent..., but we've sort of figured that out. Unfortunately, you need 6 people to do it. Let an officer or me know if you are interested. We are running Firelands for people working on the legendary staff so come on along. 

Of all the places in this world to encounter Mina, Heilandcoo managed to do just that.

Ilrisse And the 'strider went "Oh, huh. Cross-faction corpses in the Barrens. Same as usual, carry on.".

The Legion Returns

Gimmlette a posted Aug 6, 15

For those who haven't seen them or want to relive the trailers again. 

This is the cinematic teaser that ties Warlords with the new expansion.

And here is the expac announcement. 

In the forum, under "Guild History", you will find a folder named "Legion". As information is released, please copy and paste it with links to this folder. Eventually, I'll get it organized by topic, but, for now, simply collect what you find into this one place. 

I wanted a clear threat to Azeroth. I think it's coming.

Maximooch So rather than fixing PvP during WoD, they decided to just leave it in shambles until the next expac. Extremely disappoi ...

Caption This

Gimmlette a posted Aug 6, 15

We just finished one contest so it's time for another, especially the ever popular "Caption This". Below is the screenshot that needs a caption. You go to this thread and post your caption(s). You can enter as often as you like, but each caption must be a new post. Keep them clean and winners are those who can make me groan, chortle or laugh out loud. Puns are very good. 

Contest runs from now to August 16th, with winners announced August 17th. First place is 200 gold. Second place is 175 gold and third place is 150 gold. There have been ties. 

So, have at it and good luck.
