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 be International Talk Like a Pirate Day today! We'll be doing something to celebrate. Get yer arses down ta Booty Bay where the guards are passed out, a shark's in the water and you can git yerself a nifty Pirate Insult Book if yer willin' ta put up with the lack of fish ta kill and how ever'one ganks the shark when it does show up. It's nice Blizzard be addin' interestin' things to their holidays, but this was madness and we pirates like madness. Anyway, we can help speed the process to get the book by grouping up and "camping" a fish spawn point. Make sure ya talk ta the captain and get yer special grog, too. 

And, I think every International Talk Like a Pirate Day needs a little Tim Curry. 

Plus, we've put a new spin on the every pirate popular "Drunken Sailor". Everyone knows this song. 

What do we do with a drunken guildie?
What do we do with a drunken guildie?
What do we do with a drunken guildie?
Earli in the mornin'.

(Chorus)
Way ho and up she rises.
Way ho and up she rises.
Way ho and up she rises.
Earli in the mornin'.

Put 'im in Orgrimmar 'til he's sober.
Put 'im in Orgrimmar 'til he's sober.
Put 'im in Orgrimmar 'til he's sober.
Earli in the mornin'.

(Chorus)

(This verse courtesy of Nillen)
Take 'im to Argus to fight the demons.
Take 'im to Argus to fight the demons.
Take 'im to Argus to fight the demons.
Earli in the mornin'.

(Chorus)

Come up with a verse of your own and add it in the comments. 

Avast me hearties!

Cleaning up some odds and ends here. 

If you're taking screenshots of Argus over everywhere, there is a forum thread for your screenshots. 

There are some amazing views out there. I wonder if Argus is going to leave the sky once we've defeated Sargeras. What do you think? 

Tomorrow starts the celebration for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Make you way down to Booty Bay and get turned into a pirate. 

A few years ago, we ran Throne of Thunder after being "pirate-ized". Miz will be our leader in shenanigans tomorrow. 

The Deepwind Dunk is on Thursday. This is, in my opinion, the best of the Battleground Blast events they've created. It's so much fun. Even if you don't really care for PvP, you might want to give this a try. You need to get over the fact that you'll die; much more if you're a healer. SD works together to do the objective and, although I might be a bit biased, I think our working together helped win the BG's for the Alliance, when we went. You're welcome to come along. We'll be forming groups at 8:45. The maximum group size is 5 so if we have more people, we'll need to break in half. 

Tomb is on Friday. We did very well in our last foray. 

Mistress Sass'zine and

Sisters of the Moon were downed on the 5th. 

I need to point out that three people in the raid were not fully enchanted. I won't mention who they were. What was missing was ring and cloak enchants. I tell you this for two reasons. First, we are checking. And, most important, it's required and that little extra provided by an enchant can be just what we need to move through a boss. Bottom line, make sure you're enchanted. It's not like it used to be; a fact some of us miss. Cloaks, rings and necks need to be enchanted. Also, if you are missing a gem, we have people who can cut one for you. 

We are lacking the wide variety of ring enchants in the bank so if enchanters would like to make them, we have some materials in the bank but if you need more, just ask. It's very important that we're as ready as we can be. 

We are close to the achievement, Mythic Keystone Challenge. Tonight, we got to 42 of the 50 mythic plus dungeons we need for the achievement. A great number of guild members ran dungeons so there will be a lot of keystones out there after the reset on Tuesday. We can try to get another batch done in the upcoming week. It's a great achievement to work towards. There aren't a lot of them, which is very frustrating. 

We will be doing two achievement runs before the end of September; Hellfire Citadel and Dragon Soul. Come get tmog gear AND sweet achievements. 

Speaking of tmog, the September contest happens on the September 29th. There's a lot of gear on the gear tab. Take a look and see if there's anything you don't know. I've found some great pieces. 

The theme for September is "Terrible Fall Tmogs". Jaxdia and I are the judges so we're looking to be blown away by your awfulness. The officers are still looking for your ideas for next year's tmog contests. If you can do it, it's a great idea. Tell us. 

And finally, we will be having an officer's meeting next week to plan October. The biggest event will be the Walt Disney World guild vacation in the middle of the month. But, we still want to know what things you'd like to do in the days around the vacation. Just let any officer know.

I'm Guessing It's Popular

Gimmlette a posted Sep 11, 17

Judging by the response to the Herald of the Titans sign-up thread, I get the feeling this event has generated a lot of buzz about it. My bitty hunter, Gimmlette, has passed level 20. 

I'm one of those old school people who doesn't care for heirlooms and likes to actually quest and get gear. With the Darkmoon Faire from last week, once I obtained the buff from the carousel, levels came very quickly. Even without the buff, it's not like it was. 

If you have any interest in obtaining the achievement, Herald of the Titans, you should read Tarsan's forum post. It appears we have all classes covered, so don't ask me what we need. We have a number of people leveling hybrid classes so we will have the right number of tanks, healers and dps for runs. The goal is do our first run in December, to coincide with our 10th anniversary week. You have time to level and we will start running people through Ulduar for gear in October. You can probably count on a run a week. 

For people who aren't me, don't forget the heirloom vendor in the guild hall. 

You also might want to take a look for those pieces you don't have for transmog purposes. There are also shirts, mounts and pets which are only available through this vendor. 

It's exciting to see so many people interested in very much Legacy content. If you have questions about this event, just ask myself or Tarsan. We'll be happy to get you going.

As we close in on a year of transmog contests, we officers have the feeling this has been quite the successful event. 

Transmogs have been very creative. 

We are happy to see people enjoying this idea. With Halloween costumes as our October theme (You knew we'd come back to that.), we're looking ahead to next year. We can recycle the ideas we came up with but some didn't seem as popular as others. So, we're looking to you for suggestions for next year. There are no constraints for ideas. If you can pull it off, others should be able to, as well. We've received one suggestion already. We will be doing a "horde" only tmog contest next year, and, as we've seen, you can bring your horde into Stormwind to participate as the guards don't seem to bother horde participants in this location. 

If you liked one of the themes from this past year, please let us know. We are more than happy to reuse ideas. 

Also, don't forget to donate gear drops or crafting from any level other than Legion, to the gear tab. With people gearing up toons for our Herald of the Titans run, ilevel 226 gear will be greatly appreciated. I see several things on that tab whose appearance Gimm doesn't know. (Salivates) Who knows what gear drop might help you win a tmog contest. 

We will be working on the next year of tmog contest themes next month. (Bwahahahahahahaha. Disney should provide all kinds of fodder for ideas and Miz and I are rooming together.) You can post your idea here or send it to either Miz or me via an in-game letter. Remember, all contestants receive 500 gold just for showing up. That almost covers the cost of a tmog. First place is 3000 gold. Second place is 2600 gold. Third place is 2200 gold. 

Thanks for participating. It makes us happy to see an event take off like this.

Donations Needed

Gimmlette a posted Sep 2, 17

We'll be picking up where we left off in Tomb on Tuesday. Towards that end, we are in need of donations for specific items. 

Dreamleaf - to make the ink that makes the Vantus runes for Tomb.

We can use all herbs to make flasks. Although I got a 14 proc when making cauldrons on Thursday, we are a bit low with flasks. 

We need Legion enchants for neck, cloak and ring slots. And we need Arkana for the enchanters to make the enchants. Conversely, sending enchanters your 101+ greens for de-ing will also help. 

We seem to be doing okay in gems, but more are always needed. 

Remember, you MUST have your gear gemmed and enchanted. We noticed, on Thursday, quite a few of you were missing either gems or enchants. "But I'm just going to get better gear" is NOT acceptable. Just do it. 

There are a few donations on the gear tab for our transmog people to peruse. This tab is ONLY for less than 100 level gear. Please don't put current Legion gear here. See below for the transmog event. If you are interested in leveling a toon for Herald of the Titans, the greens you get while leveling would go great here.
