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.

Gauging Interest

Gimmlette a posted 13 hours ago

Without a clear timeline for the release of "Legion", we are left to flounder about in Warlords, searching for things to do. I don't know about you, but I'm finding it boring to log onto garrison missions and only 3 raids to do. I got my tauren to level 100 last night, but all that does is open up, wow, garrison missions. I think, of all the expansions I've gone through, this one is the most underwhelming and infuriating of all of them. Prior to this, Cataclysm held that honor, and it had way more raids to do. 

In bouncing things off your officers, we're soliciting opinions on a couple of ideas. First of all, thanks to Timewalking dungeons, we're remembering how tough some of those were at level. Five of us on our hordies couldn't get through Black Morass. Gad, I hated that place back in the day, when you had to do it to get your key for Karazhan. But, after running Arcatraz and getting a bunch of timewalking currency, we all increased our ilevels by at least 50 points. Tonight, we'll be trying again. 

So, that got Red thinking. What if we put together a legacy raiding group?

There doesn't seem to be a move afoot to make older raids like Timewalker dungeons, but what fun that could be. And that's the premise of this idea. You'd keep a toon at level until all the raids at that level were done. Then, you could level to the next expansions raids. Or, we'd target a specific raid and you'd gear for that. The other side of this is seeing ALL the phases of a boss. How many of you know about "class calls" in Blackwing Lair? How many of you have had to ride the dragons in the Kil'jaden fight in Sunwell or get out of the blizzard in Sapphiron's fight, shown above? You don't see these things when you go in as a level 100 because, ka-pow, and the boss is dead. 

We'd like your thoughts on running the older content so you can see ALL of Baron Geddon's fight or have to get out of the cave in the original Gruul. Would you make a toon to stay at a particularly level to run content at that level or would you like to bring in a level 100 and try to see all the phases of a fight, resisting the urge to kill instantly? 

In this same vein, we're gauging interest in trying to get Herald of the Titans for another group of people. 

Algalon is tough at level. We are considering doing this the weekend of December 18-20th. This is what you would need to do.

1) Level a toon to 80 and freeze XP gains. You freeze xp by going to Stormwind Keep and talking to a rogue to the right of the throne room. 
2) We run you through Ulduar for gear. There is a gear restriction on this achievement. It is absolute. Armor, trinkets and jewelry cannot be higher than 226. Weapons cannot be higher than 232. Regular Ulduar runs drop the necessary gear. Doing "heroic events" such as the Algalon fight itself, yields 236 level gear which cannot be used. 
3) You must have your gear gemmed and enchanted for maximum healing, dps and tanking. You also need to have a stack of buff food for your specific class, and appropriate potions. Fortunately, higher level gems and enchants do not count against the achievement. AND we have a lot of people who will happily cut gems, make enchants and potions and cook food for the Herald group.
4) You need to commit to learning your toon and the fight. We can run Ulduar any time during the week as well as weekends, but you need to show up to at least 4 of these events to be considered for the group. This fight is exacting and unforgiving. The group has to learn to work together. We will bring along our higher level toons for assistance in gearing up. Plus, we have people who have toons who got the achievement the first time we did this. They will be bringing these toons along.

If there is interest in doing another Herald run, we will help you get your toon to that level and help you get geared. We need to know what kind of interest there is in this achievement. We can do Ulduar earlier in the evening, for instance, for those who want help gearing up but can't stay online later. We just need to know. 

Please respond below if you are interested in legacy raids, either with frozen xp toons or as level 100s, or Herald of the Titans.

I finally found this in amongst the piles of screenshots I have to crop. File this under, "What would happen if..." 

If this were a mount in the Blizzard store and cost $25, would you buy it?


Aerdilan This is one of my favorites. I want it as a mount as Zylo said.
Zylostout I would totally buy a skittles mount!

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Penelope (Penny) Inkelton.

Aer will be recounting Penny's adventures soon. Just watch the forum. And congratulations, Ryche. For suggesting the winning name, you'll have 10 gold in your mailbox. (No, I won't send them in 1 copper increments, as tempting as that might be.) 


The Ultimate in Contests

Gimmlette a posted Sep 27, 15

I wore this tee to the guild meet-up. 

It's actually on a green, not tan, background. People were excited to see a Spectacular Death tee and wished they could have one. While the company that did this, Swagdog, doesn't do custom tees anymore, we officers discussed this and have come up with a contest to design a Spectacular Death tee shirt. 

The rules are as follows:
1 - The design of the shirt must appeal to Spectacular Death members. 
2 - We do not believe you can use any Blizzard design on the shirt, even though this will not be available for sale to the general public. However, your design MUST have "Spectacular Death A-Llane" somewhere in it. The green and/or cream of the tabard is not required. We have two slogans, "We run the stuff you wish your guild did" and "Dying creatively since 2007". It's not required that you use either, but they are available if you wish. 
3 - Shirts will be printed on heather gray or equivalent color. Don't design for any other shirt color. 
4 - Use the attached, downloadable template for your shirt design or use one that is similar. Don't limit yourself to standard design placement. All over, over-size, wrap-around, small, large, doesn't matter. If your design wins, we'll figure out how to make it work. 
5 - Entries must be sent to specdeath42@gmail.com and should be sent in JPG/PNG/GIF formats ONLY. (JPG is preferred, but we can use the other kinds.)
6 - Title your entry and provide your in-game toon name, forum name if different,  as well as an email where we can reach you. (Emails are always kept confidential.)
7 - You may enter as often as you like, but each entry must be submitted separately.
8 - Officers reserve the right to not accept designs deemed inappropriate. If you've been here awhile, you should know the tone of this guild. Design accordingly. 
9 - Contest runs from now to 9 p.m. on Sunday, September 27th. 
We are aiming to keep the shirts $25 or less. The more colors you have, the more it will cost. Please keep that in mind when designing. We will consider youth and children's sizes for tee shirts, should you want to dress your whole family in Spectacular Death. 
Once all the entries have been received, we will post them on the web site. You'll be able to vote for your favorite design. Voting will run from October 1st to October 15th, with the winning design announced on Saturday, October 17th. The winner receives one free tee shirt, as well as in-game prizes. Should there be a tie, the officers have final say. 
Our goal is to have the shirts available for order by US Thanksgiving, which is Thursday, November 26th. This would leave ample time for non US guild members to have a shirt by Christmas. Any person in the guild can design a shirt. If you have a question not covered here, talk to myself or Red.
Good luck and happy designing.
