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.

I Never Saw This Coming

You MUST act soon. I am, quite frankly, blown away by this. 

Blizzard

As your journey takes you from Pandaria to Draenor, we wanted to extend one last opportunity to obtain your Legendary Cloak—and share some important updates related to this iconic item. 

Legendary Cloak Changes: Once More unto the Breach

As a part of the transition from Mists of Pandaria to Warlords of Draenor, we’ll be making some changes to the Legendary Cloak quest line and ultimately closing it out as players head into the new expansion. Once the quest is fully closed, the item will no longer be attainable, and the cloak will become a symbol of the great deeds you’ve accomplished in Mists of Pandaria.

With the release of the pre-expansion patch (6.0.2), players who are not already on the journey through this quest line will no longer be able to begin it. We will also be removing the Test of Valor step with patch 6.0.2 as a part of our transition from using Valor as a currency.

Once Warlords of Draenor launches on November 13, the Legendary Cloak quest line will be gone entirely—the quests and the cloak will no longer be obtainable, and any related in-progress quests will be cleared from your log.

But when one door closes, another door opens. In Warlords of Draenor, players will have the opportunity to earn a new Legendary item available exclusively in the new expansion: Khadgar’s Band of the Archmage.

The Gaze of the Black Prince: One Last Look

If you haven’t yet earned your Legendary Cloak, you still have one final opportunity to make accelerated progress on your quest. Rather than end the Gaze of the Black Prince buff on Tuesday, September 16 (as previously announced), the buff will remain active until the release of the Warlords of Draenor pre-patch (6.0.2). This buff increases the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It also increases the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line, including Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, and Titan Runestones.

Good luck on your quest, but remember that your voyage doesn’t end here. Soon, you’ll be setting your sights on the new Legendary item, Khadgar’s Band of the Archmage, in Warlords of Draenor.

To learn more about the Legendary Cloak quest line, check out our previous blog posts: I am Legendary and The Time Has Come: Legendary Quest Line.

Duellona GRRRR! That was a horrible questline to begin with. Dare I assume the new "legendary" will be equally annoying ...

Herald of the Titans

Gimmlette a posted Mon at 12:24
Because of a number of requests, we will be offering another Herald of the Titans this year. 



You must freeze your XP at level 80. You cannot be level 81 to do this. A number of people made toons for our run at the beginning of this year and have left them at 80 to help. If you need to know how to lock XP, go here. Don't take this lightly. As you quest or run raids to get gear, you will gain XP and quickly be level 81 before you know it. The second you turn 80, get to Stormwind and freeze your XP.

Next, you must accumulate gear. You need to be in purples. Armor can be no higher than 226 while weapons can be up to level 232. Nicolii has compiled all the various threads in the Herald of the Titans folder into one thread, here. Included is best in slot information and where you can find pieces. As he points out, come 6.0.2, justice points are going away. All gear will be available for gold. If you aren't interested in running stuff for justice points, you will be able to buy what you might need with gold. No, we won't be running Herald before the patch drops. There's too much else to do between now and then. 

Lastly, you must sign up and list your class in this thread. It's really important that we know who wants to come. You are going to have to attend raids of Ulduar and lower in order to get gear. We have a Wrath mount run scheduled for this Thursday. I strongly recommend you come to that as the gear that drops from Obsidium Sanctum and Eye of Eternity can be used in Herald. Unfortunately, Onyxia drops gear that is too high, but, it's great for transmog. (Warlock tier pieces...shudder. I looked like Putress, which, I guess, was the desired effect.) The weapons she drops are 232 which are at level. Anything above Ulduar, Trial of the Champions and Icecrown Citadel, is too high of a level. Crafted gear is also acceptable, as is PvP gear. You have a lot of options. The key is to let your officers and the thread know what you might need. 

Officers will be meeting in the next 2 weeks to put things on the schedule for the rest of the year. There is so very much happening. We're 2 months from Warlords. I want us to do this before the end of the year so please sign up and be ready to attend raids when we schedule them.

So, we were talking about that "recruiting" statement we drew up back at the beginning of summer. Aerdil wanted to read it again but had some difficulty finding it. With Warlords now imminent, I thought I'd bring it out again. 

Spectacular Death is looking to downsize for the upcoming Warlords of Draenor. If you're looking for a hard-core, progressive raiding guild, go somewhere else. Sloths, rouges, and floor tankers are welcome to apply. Professional floor tankers are urgently needed as our last one under performed, preferring to remain alive. What is the guild name here, people?  Be prepared to show evidence of your floor tanking abilities. Healers are also needed. DKs are welcome to apply for that spot. 

We have a tabard but prefer to raid naked. We also have voice chat but it's used only for singing battle cries and raid wipe excuses. We have 8 bank tabs for deposit and 3 out behind the Stormwind Keep for "other" deposits. You must be able to bury your own bodies. 

Warlocks from levels 1-19, 43-76 and 87.5 to 90, may apply. If you're on the green fire quest, you're allowed only one whine per day. Monks have a monthly surcharge for putting up with cute dancing. Pallies, being useful as cannon fodder, are welcome so long as they know how to use Kings. Mages must have the conjured food glyph and be proficient in portal roulette. Priests need to be proficient in Life Grip. Healing is for the weak. Hunter tanks are urgently needed so long as they have one of the following pets:  turtle, sporebat, raptor or boar. The only true bear tank is UrsaMajor. All others are ursa minor. We require an ilevel of 42+bacon. 

Please apply using a number 3 pencil or the blood of your enemies. 

 

The above screenshot is from a 0.03% XT wipe. /sniff...It was one of our finest hours. 

Speaking of Warlords, the officers are going to meet in the next couple of weeks to put up a schedule of events for all the things announced revolving around Warlords. Thankfully, we have a schedule from Blizzard when the pre-launch events, the 10-year events and the first Warlord raid will be available. We're going to look at that and plan when we think we can reasonably attempt content. 

As you know, this is a no-pressure guild. There is never pressure to level a toon, even if we are short a specific class. Once you are in Warlords, do not feel any pressure to level. You get to 100 at your own speed. However, know that the announced Core Hound Mount is only available during the Molten Core level 100 event. (It will probably show up in BMAH.) That will be a Raid Finder, 40 man raid. We'll run it as much as we can. The first raid will be released December 2nd. And the anniversary events end January 2nd. 

One thing we will be doing is running 5-mans and that first raid, the first time, without strats. You are welcome to read up on the strats for the 5-mans and the raid, but you will be prohibited from giving them out during the runs. We're going to go into 5-mans and this raid just to poke things with sharpened sticks and see what happens when you "hold my drink and watch this". After we've spent one evening in 5-mans and one evening in a raid just poking about, we'll go in with strats posted to the forum. We haven't done this since Wrath. Watch the calendar for the "No Strats 5-Mans" and the "No Strats Raid". You are welcome to run these prior to these events, but be prepared to not hear any strats during the first time we go in there. The raid will be for level 100s. The 5-mans will be whatever is available on the day we do it. The raid will be in the new "Normal" mode, which is what "Flex" is becoming. 

As always, if you need or want something in the waning days of Mists, please send the appropriate officer an in-game letter. PvP wants should go to Minathelan. 5-man/scenario wants should go to Dorelei. Raiding wants should go to Corien or Jorlynn. You can also send them to me and I will forward them on to the appropriate officer. 

This is an exciting time. The beta is winding down. Things are on the PTR. 



Pretty soon, we'll be taming new beasts and seeing new landscapes.

Minaithelan oh man , I thought I was going to be the hero that day on XT.

Guild Member of the Month

Gimmlette a posted Fri at 11:29
Lots of other things took precedent over announcing our GMotM this month. We had two nominees. Skipkick was nominated for being such a great sport when we filled his mailbox. (Two hours! It took me two hours to empty it. I "hate" you all so much.) The person we're going to recognize this month was nominated because he is willing to help anyone with anything at the drop of a hat (usually the hat off a horde). He puts a lot of great and funny stuff on Facebook and he made the awesome Terrapin 500 video, which you can view, again, here.  

So, we honor Minaithelan at Guild Member of the Month. 



He also didn't look half bad in the beta. 

He will be leading us on Monday when we do a PvP event. 



--Gimm

P.S. I was asked where the "Spider Mina" moniker came from. You can thank George for that. Mina was up to his usual, "Hold my drink and watch this" with rogue's Shadow Step ability. This allows Mina to quickly get behind a target, enemy or friend. He uses it to go places and see things. George found the following video. Substitute "Mina" for "pig". 


Duellona Awesome Mina!
Minaithelan wow , thanks so much for this . And I still say that video would not have been possible without all of you .
Jorlynn Gratz Mina!

Hallelujah

Barbershops allow Face Changes in Warlords



If you were concerned about the appearance changes making you want a new face, fear not! YouTuber ZwuckeL has posted a video on how it's now possible in the Barbershop. Thanks to CosmicGuitars and Pax_Lyon for alerting us!
Faience Unfortunately all female gnome faces have this faintly terrifying frozen smile. They're locked forever in the expression ...
