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.

Pit Crew

I really think Blizzard missed an opportunity. In Ulduar, you have this large area where you can knock down towers and avoid laser-shooting spiders. They could have done a whole "Mario Kart"-ish event with speed boosts and jumps and barrel throwing monkeys. But, players don't really like being in something to fight. We would rather stand on our feet than push buttons 1-4 in some sequence. Still, I think of the missed potential every time I go into Ulduar.

Poll Idea

So, what are you; a 'gently browned' or a 'blackened husk' marshmallow roaster? The poll is to the left. Make sure you click the "next poll" link at the bottom right. There are more polls there for you to weigh in.

Catching Up

First of all, another guild member got a legendary. 

Dore got the legendary staff last weekend. Congratulations, Dore. We're in Firelands again in February as we have more people working on this legendary. If you are working on a legendary that needs a series of runs of specific raids to complete, please let me know. We'll be happy to assist you. 

Just a reminder to check out our library tab. 

We have a lot of recipes and patterns to help level professions. Some of you are completionists so check out the tab to see if you know every one of these patterns. We're always taking your extra recipes, too, if you don't want to or can't sell them in the AH. 

We're also collecting classic enchanting mats on the enchanting tab. Those of you who plan to attend the Legacy Blackwing Lair event in mid-February need to let me know so I can get you a cloak. You need to have it and any new gear you get, enchanted. If we are able to clear BWL over the 19th/20th, we will move on to AQ 10. Depending upon the number of people in attendance, the 10-man version may not have a full 10 people. But, as we have seen with Molten Core and Blackwing Lair, we will be successful. If you're scouting ahead, we possibly will be done with classic raiding in March or April and then it's on to Burning Crusades. 

Last weekend, we ran Heroic Blackrock Foundary. It took us a bit to figure out, but we managed to get Gruul and Beastlord Darmac down. 

We spent some time on Oregorger, but, man, he's a pain. 

We did one try of Hanz and Franz. 

We weren't successful. This fight is simply about placement, where to stand. 

In February, we will be working, again, heroic Imperator. We haven't gotten him down and we need to learn that fight on heroic before we come back into Highmaul in mythic. We'll spend one night on Imperator and then continue with heroic Blackrock Foundry. Please consider coming along. We can use everyone. 

Finally, guild chat. 

Perhaps we should have a 'song lyrics' night. We could see how long we could go with a conversation just in song lyrics. What do you think?

Perki Sounds like a plan!

I love it when things come together. First there was Red.

I am not volunteering for splinter duty. 

Then Othel documented our Legacy Blackwing Lair run. 

Oh noes! He came right through the wall. You got this Othel. We trust you, mainly because most of us are dead at this point.

We'll be back in Blackwing Lair mid to late February. I've sent out some cloaks to some people but if you need an Onyxia Scale Cloak, please let me know. You can send a note to Gaussette, where I happen to have the cloaks stored because she has bag space. Yes, you can get better cloaks with better stats and wear them for BWL, but they won't provide protection from the Shadowflame which we will encounter from where we'll pick up the raid, through Nefarian, the end boss. Please don't be a crispy critter. We're requiring the Onyxia cloaks for the rest of the raid. Also, you'll need to get it enchanted. Zylo did a wonderful list of enchants and food and potions for our Legacy raiding. While you "could" put pretty much any enchant on your cloak, we are asking that you stay within the spirit of what we're doing here and choose enchants which were only available during classic raiding. The best ones, the fire resistance ones, aren't in the game anymore, sadly. 

Also, Red has been running level 60's throught Molten Core for gear, now that we have moved on to Blackwing Lair. If you would like a run, please talk to him. Gaussette got all except the tier 1 helm from the last run AND she got a pair of boots to wear in Blackwing Lair. For those of you who don't have class specific gear drops in MC, there are non-class pieces that drop, specifically off Majordomo. That's who dropped the plate boots referenced above. If Red has done his runs for the week, just ask in chat. It's a roughly 45 minute run. I do ask, however, that if you get any Blood of the Mountains, you send them to Specdeathbk. 

In case you didn't know, Spectacular Death has a Twitter account. @SpecDeath is the account. You'll find, when I remember to tweet, an account of what's going on in the guild as well as other strange antics. (Yes, those are cat photos.) We follow a wide range of accounts; Blizzard and developers; Neil DeGrasse Tyson; Weird Al Yankovic; and guild members, to name a few. We also follow an account entitled @MaryLeeShark. Ocearch.org is the organization which caught and tagged the shark. They are dedicated to providing information on the ocean and its life including, but not limited to, great white sharks. If you follow the link, you'll see a map showing all Mary Lee's pings since she was tagged. The big orange spot is where she last pinged. I thought it incredibly cool to follow this account. 

We've been following the account for some time, but this past Monday, Mary Lee followed us back. I had to do a double take there. 

I asked in chat for a bunch of us to go to Krasarang Wilds to take a screenshot to thank Mary Lee for following us. We took a bunch of photos. This is one Jorlynn got. 

Yes, we turned Bruce green. 

Finally, this "bears" pointing out. 

It would be un-'bear'able if you were to miss our event on Saturday. I'm 'bear'-ly able to contain my excitement. Some of you are missing just one and then you'll have a new mount. Meet at the Shrine in Pandaria at 8:45 p.m. Even if you have yours, we need quite a few people. Hogger is a 'bear' to down now.

The 30-second TV spot was released today. 

Guess there is a movie coming out.
