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.

Lore Refresher

Skipkick posted Mon at 16:27

Pretty decent synopsis of the whole story of World of Warcraft. Great way to refresh yourself on the rather large story that has unfolded over the years. Little prep for the expansion! :)
Ceyien Awesome! Thank you!
Lasts Yay! I love Nobbel's lore vids but had yet to see this one tyvm for postin
Gimmlette a Wow. This is amazing.

Back in the Beta

Gimmlette a posted Mon at 14:15
There was a character wipe in the beta at the end of last week. That means you start over. That's okay because it gave me another shot at getting the tabard for SD on the beta correct. 

I'm just not sure about the expression on my face. I kind of look like I'm saying, "I've seen things, so many things, things that give me nightmares." But I think I got the tabard right this time. I do like her hands, however. Finally, we have fingers that actually behave like fingers and not like a glove. 

New things have been added to the beta. There is a breadcrumb quest line to get you to Draenor. We've had a chance to test that. No sign of a pre-WoD event, however. I will be really upset with them if they don't do something for this expac. They should have learned from Mists that the whole WoW community wants these events. 

You can make a level 100 now. I haven't done that. I'm testing things on Gimm to see if things have been fixed. Some have. Some haven't. The beta is running much smoother than before, although when I  disconnect, there are issues. I need to post my "broken" list to the forum. 

I am really excited about this. 

They promised us toucans and, man, they delivered. They come in red, blue and the above green. These are meat eaters and are found at the beginning, in the opening "get from point A to point B" linear quest line. I was told they were originally farther up north in an area I had just reached before a new patch was put in. I had not seen them until I ran the beginning again. 

So, hunters, get those pirate transmogs put together. I am NOT naming this guy "Sam". I saw 6 hunters with toucans named "Sam". Give me some name ideas. Some people posted to the Facebook page but I'll also entertain names here. Add this guy to the spore bat I'll have once the expac goes live. Thankfully, I have pared down my pets but it's getting crowded in the stable. 

Sorry for the delay in announcing the contest winners in our "Caption This" contest. Here is the photo you were asked to caption. 

If you don't recognize this, it's the instant the floor gives way in Eye of Eternity. Very clever captions were entered and it's hard, always, to pick a winner. 

In first place is Taraska with "Whoever was supposed to be tanking the floor on this boss battle obviously needs more practice." Tara wins 200 gold and a surprise box. 

Second place goes to Worandpaws with "When Gimmlette says, 'Plans for the evening are up in the air', she doesn't mean she hasn't decided yet." Wor wins 150 gold and a surprise box. 

Third place goes to Ollivor with "Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning." I admit being a sucker for that line. He wins 100 gold and a surprise box. 

Thanks, everyone, for submitting your captions. We'll do another contest in September or October. 

Next up is the Beach Pet Battle event from last Friday. 

Minaithelan and friend watched the proceedings with interest. 

We had 14 people participate and 2 people just watch. Rednekwichdr and Minaithelan took off a couple of times to rescue the NPCs at Saldeen's Farm. At first, it was a level 16 horde but then he came back with friends. We made it into General Chat a couple of times with, "Must be a guild pet battle event on the beach." I think the most fun was putting together teams of all one kind of pet. I battled with my robots, my tiny carp and my chickens. 

Everyone who attended and battled will receive a couple tokens of appreciation for coming. We do not want the wrapped package back. It's yours to do with as you please. 

It's the end of the month, folks, so Guild Member of the Month nominations should be sent to me by Wednesday, July 30th. I need to know whom you are nominating and why. Write it on an in-game letter. You may nominate anyone in the guild, any toon, including officers. 

Also, if there is something you want to run in August, please let me know. As this expac winds down, it can be hard to be motivated to do anything. If you need a break, let us know so we can flag your toons accordingly. We have ideas for what people want or need but we really would like your input. I also want to ask for another Raid Leader to help Corien. He's doing a fantastic job, but with a new expac and new raids on the horizon, we need a second person who can assist. Spreading out the leading over two people means you're not called upon all the time. 

How's the fishing going? (Looks at Dorelei, Minaithelan and Basolphur.) This is upcoming. 

Just a suggestion for trying to fish this guy up; go to Northrend. Seriously. While you can fish him up from any fishing pools in Mists of Pandaria, you may have competition from people trying to level fishing or cooking. Northrend fishing pools are pretty much ignored now with the changes to fishing. I suggest you fish the river and lake at the east end of the zone, where it meets Grizzly Hills. I would fish out the lake and then fish down the river. When I got to the bottom of the river, where it met the ocean, the pools in the upper river and lake had respawned. I fished my turtle up from the lake. Cataclysm fishing pools are also not crowded. Uldum's river is a good place to find a lot of pools that will have respawned by the time you get to the bottom. I still need an "announcer" for this event. You need to be able to type the names of the contestants in the race and provide typed "who is in first" commentary as the racers go past the bank in IF and the Violet Citadel in Dalaran. 

Finally, at the end of the month, Wednesday, August 27th, we'll be doing an event for our horde and alliance toons. 

We'll be working on Wintergrasp achievements during this event. It will be great fun for everyone and, assuming we can make the horde win Wintergrasp, we're going to try to get Vault of Archavon done. That means I might have to tank. You won't want to miss that! 

Dorelei Sea turtles? I still don't believe they exist. We had a great turn out at the beach battle. Gimm - you did not mention ...

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?"
