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.

Us Again

I'm told, in hockey, scoring three goals in a game is called a "hat trick". I think we could say we got one of those with having a BlizzCaps in the last three days. 

It started on Saturday with Deathtacular. 

"Icecrown Citadel: The Musical". We could do that. I may have incorrectly credited the taker of the photo. For that I apologize. I don't have everyone's horde alts memorized. (Tonight is Play Your Horde night. We'll be doing Lunar Fest stuff. If you need to level a toon horde side, the amount of XP you get for honoring the elders can level you really fast.) 

On Sunday, Zylostout got the photo and caption we've all said numerous times. 

Nat's falling over dead was mildly humorous the first time he did it. Now, dude, haven't you learned that if I'm out in the ocean and you come riding up on a horse that sinks, you'll drown? We had that discussion over the weekend about how WOW doesn't follow the laws of physics unless it does. 

Finally, today's photo. 

We were messing around after Friday Night Fights. That's Scarlet Monastery. Ameliya was running it for the old Dalaran teleport spell. Mages, if you don't have this portal, you need to go into the Scarlet Halls section of the Monastery. The last boss, Flameweaver Koegler, casts a spell called Book Burner. He starts by the door and goes clockwise around the room. The teleport book is to the right as you come in. You need to kill him before he sets the book on fire. The book can be retrieved to be given to other mages. 

For kicks and giggles, Ameliya decided to see if he could impale himself on the steeple of the monastery. We were listening in on Discord and burst out laughing when there was a, "Yes! Success!" and those of us still in the party saw his health vaporize. Keg and I headed to the monastery to try our luck at impaling. 

It is very hard. You'd think, with those curly thingees on the steeple, you'd have a bigger target area, but you don't. The problem is, unlike the Stormwind Cathedral, there is not much airspace above Scarlet Monastery. We ran into a situation where, as you fly straight up, you hit the ceiling and it moves you. There's no way to know when you'll hit that ceiling. I kept missing the point of the steeple and sliding down the side. After 3 tries, my gear was completely red. Keg was able to impale himself. I was not. It was hilarious. 

I ask you, what guild goes out of its way to find places to impale themselves?

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

Gimmlette a posted Jan 31, 16

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?
