Spectacular News

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.

It's sometimes hard to remember that we had problems with both of these raids. When 9 of us can waltz in and waltz out 30 minutes later with Mag's head in someone's bag, for those of us who have been in SD a long time, it's hard to recall when it wasn't a tank 'n spank. Our first attempt, two and a half years ago, at Magtheridon's Lair resulted in a guild first kill, but not without three wipes to get the fight down. Tonight, Malpracticer won his head and got to be the one who put it on the pike for all to see.

The best part of this was the horde who tried to sneak into Honor Hold to kill stuff. That belf got the surprise of her life when we all jumped her. Her death added to our 83,361 horde kills toward the 100,000 needed for the achievement.

From here, we flew to Blade's Edge and Gruul's Lair. The first fight, with High King Mulgar, gave us fits as we were learning it. I remember coming back at least 5 times before we got the council down. Gruul, after that, is something of a pushover.

Seven of 9 people got the Magtheridon achievement and 8 of 10 got the Gruul achievement. If you are lacking a Burning Crusade raid for the meta achievement, let me know. We can schedule one in September.

Along for the fun were Rolandgilead (tank), Malpracticer (healer), Volixy, Loenides, Minaithelan, Starrefyre, Slugslinger, Unthur, Nounours and me.

Remember this event from February? Spectacular Death hosted a "Take over Halaa" all server event.

Horde and Alliance met in Halaa and took turns beating each other up for battle tokens. We are going to host again on Thursday night, beginning at 8 p.m. All toons capable of getting to Halaa without Mass Summon are welcome to come. That would generally be level 65 and up.

The whole point of this event is to earn Halaa Battle Tokens. You need them, plus Halaa Research Tokens, to purchase two mounts available only when your faction holds Halaa; the Dark War and Dark Riding Talbuks. You must be exalted with the Kurenai to purchase these mounts. The Research Tokens are acquired by killing things in Nagrand and getting crystal powder. That gets turned in for Research Tokens when your faction holds Halaa. During BC, this was quite the place to beat each other up. Now, however, unless we actually schedule an event, it's hard to find people here to kill for the tokens.

This will be one big party. Costumes are welcome. I may have to hop onto my cow to coordinate the event. We will attack for about 10 minutes, stop, and let the horde attack for 10 minutes and vice versa until everyone who needs tokens has them. It usually takes about an hour. It does get kind of silly after about 30 minutes.

Everyone's welcome to come. This is a great event even if you don't like PvP. Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 1st beginning at 8 p.m. server.


Isn't That a Pretty Ride?

Gimmlette a posted Aug 28, 11

On Saturday, thirteen of us ran into Obsidian Sanctum and conquered 25-man mode. The drake that drops from OS+3 25-man is different than in 10-man. Icxlock was the recipient of the RNG's good fortune. As it also happened, almost everyone in the raid got some achievement, even 2 or 3 of them. Guild chat was awash in achievement spam.

Remember folks, we run OS+3 every week. If we have 7-10, we will do 10-man. If we can get a dozen on, we'll do 25-man. Watch the schedule, sign up and come on out. You know you'd look good on this mount.

Grats, Icx.

Jenzrr Can I still ask for the 25-man mount for my GmotM?

Word of the Day

I have a word a day calendar. This was the word of the day on Monday. I'm thinking it's no coincidence Patch 4.3's goodies, including transmogrification were announced early in the week.


Worse Than Deathwing

Please, please, please be safe. In guild chat last night, we discovered over half of the people online at the time were going to be directly affected by Hurricane Irene. If you are ordered to evacuate, do so. Don't forget your pets, including the goldfish. Yes, there was going to be a guild event on Saturday night but that is not important when compared to this.

Please, take appropriate precautions and be safe.

WOWHead posted this article this morning. We are going. End of discussion.


Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! Step right up and prepare to be amazed!

It’s incredible! It’s unbelievable! You’ll be dazzled. You’ll be amazed! You aren’t prepared for the Darkmoon Faire, ‘cause it’s like nothing you’ve seen before! Don’t be shy now, don’t be bashful, step right up for a tantalizing glimpse of what we’ve got in store for you when patch 4.3 arrives!

That old thing?

No, no, no, Clem. The Darkmoon Faire isn’t what it used to be and it isn’t where it used to be. The management hasn’t changed but the Faire certainly has. It’s a whole new animal. Tickets? You don’t need those old tickets, just rip ‘em right up, ‘cause we’ve got new tickets! Out with the old, in with the new -- new quests, that is! Things have changed ‘round here: we’ve got an island all to ourselves now, and what an island it is. Mist-shrouded Darkmoon Island is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma. It’s a place of mystery and wonder, and you wouldn’t believe the deals we made to get it… or who we made ‘em with. But never mind that, just follow me right through here and I’ll show you what the Darkmoon Faire is all about.
All new! All spectacular!

Catch a show at the marvelous main stage or witness a dazzling fireworks display. But don’t stare too long or you might miss the stunning spectacles that surround you. Gaze in awe of our magical menagerie, get your fortune told by the amazing Sayge, go on a pony ride, experience the healthful effects of carnival food, and more!

Of course, there’s more to the Darkmoon Faire than just fantastic shows and culinary delights. You can still turn in your Darkmoon Cards, but you wouldn’t just come here for measly ol’ cards when there’s so much more to see, experience, and win. Yes, win! You like dancing bears, right? Everybody likes dancing bears. Even bears like dancing bears. How about a dancing bear… you can ride!

That’s not all! We have adorable companion pets includin’ a fez-wearing monkey, a plethora of profession recipes, toys, balloons, souvenirs, delectable carnival snacks and beverages, heirlooms for the little ones, and even replicas of long-lost suits of armor that we’re offering for your Transmogrification needs. You can also make your mark with new achievements and titles. All it takes to earn these fabulous rewards is a few Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets and a good reputation with the carnies. How do ya get your grubby mitts on some tickets? I’m glad you asked!

Step right up! Try your luck! Everyone’s a winner!

Have we got games? You bet we’ve got games, and they’re so easy to play an orc could do it. Just head on over to the midway, buy some Darkmoon Game Tokens, and get ready to play. Easy to learn, difficult to master, anyone can play and everyone can win. Just lay your tokens down for a chance at winning Darkmoon Prize Tickets playing games like Whack-a-Gnoll, the Tonk Battle Royale, the Cannon, Ring Toss, the Shooting Gallery, and more! Five games are there to test your skills at any one time. The better you play, the easier it is to win a bucket of Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets! Once a month, you’ve got a shot at tickets, and the fun never stops ‘cause you can play as many times as you like. But that’s not the only way to win big!
The Darkmoon Faire Field Guide

It’s your passport to riches, my friend. Y’see, we need a few things -- just some junk, nothing valuable to a big hero like you. We call ‘em Darkmoon Artifacts, and there’s all different kinds to be found all over Azeroth. The Darkmoon Field Guide helps you discover artifacts while you’re explorin’ dungeons, slayin’ monsters, and fightin’ in Battlegrounds. Without a guide, you’d never notice ‘em, and it’ll help keep you focused on the stuff we want. Whether you just reached level 10, or you’ve crushed the biggest baddies in the land, we need somethin’ from nearly everybody. You won’t have to go too far out of your way to get ‘em and each month you’ll get a new opportunity to seek out an Artifact for us. What do you get out of the deal? Don’t you worry, you’ll get your cut. When you bring a Darkmoon Artifact back to us, you’ll get valuable experience (it builds character, you know!), earn a better reputation, and possibly earn precious Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets too!

Oh, did I mention that you can use the Field Guide to get to Darkmoon Island whenever the Darkmoon Faire’s monthly extravaganza is up and running?

So, you want to work in show business?

Maybe you’d like a little peek behind the scenes, eh? Want to see what it takes to run the greatest show on Azeroth? Well, it’s not all sunshine and cotton candy, my friend. There are beasts to heal, food to cook, and buildings to fix. If you’re willing help keep the show going and put your skills to work, you’ll not only impress us, but you can get experience, Darkmoon Prize Tickets, and even polish up your skills -- up to five skill points per profession, per Faire week, if you’re good at what you do!
Darkmoon Deathmatch!

Like any good carnival, the Darkmoon Faire has a shady side. You can leave the skilled labor to the suckers and go for a faster score instead. If you’ve got the minerals, the Darkmoon Deathmatch offers an experience unparalleled since the Gurubashi Arena. Pitmaster Pei has a big old treasure chest just brimming with goodies and Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets that he’ll drag out into the Darkmoon Deathmatch Pit every three hours or so. Everybody wants it, so if you want a piece of the action you’ll just have to jump in and prove that you’re the toughest one in the Pit.

Oh, the Faire is perfectly safe, Clem. Just don’t wander into the woods.

Now, now, don’t panic. Darkmoon Isle might be a bit spooky, but except for the Deathmatch Pit, the Faire itself is completely safe, I guarantee it. It’s a sanctuary even, and we won’t let anybody’s beef ruin the fun. The shadowy woods surroundin’ the fair are another thing entirely, though. I wouldn’t say that people have disappeared into those woods never to return, but, well… people disappear into those woods never to return. So watch your step , and your back, when you leave the Faire. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
Mark your calendar

Now that you know how amazing the new Darkmoon Faire is, you won’t want to miss it. Just take a look at your in-game calendar, and the Darkmoon Faire dates will show up there on the first week of every month. Darkmoon Faire barkers and displays will also pop up in every capital city to herald the arrival of the Faire. Silas Darkmoon himself has even started up a mailer to make sure that no one misses out!

Hitch a ride

During the first week of each month, convenient Darkmoon Faire outposts with Darkmoon Portals will appear in Elwynn Forest and Mulgore, offering free rides to Darkmoon Island and the Faire!

Darkmoon Mages in capital cities and on Darkmoon Island will also be around to help you get between the Faire and various capital cities. There’s no such thing as a free lunch, so naturally you’re obliged to compensate them for their services.

The all new Darkmoon Faire is coming to Darkmoon Island in patch 4.3. Don’t miss it!

Gimm here. All I can say is, "It's about time and they better have a cannon!"
Malpracticer Oh WOW, another timesink for me ;) and I was just thinking about leveling archeology too. The funny thing is, is that o...
