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.

If you were along Friday night, when we did Emerald Nightmare, you know we started our tank rotation policy, which is outlined, for guild members, below. Dorvaklynx tanked with Hercules. She did a wonderful job, as Treemoose did last night. We are looking forward to having all people who want to tank, tanking content. 

When I announced Lynx as the tank, Pinkel quipped, "Awww. Pinkel's not tanking." I burst out laughting. There is a guild story about Pinkel tanking. It's a good one. 

We were learning Obsidium Sanctum. It's a Wrath of the Lich King-era dungeon. For those who have never been there, a black dragon is in the center of the encounter, on an island. 

Sartharion is surrounded by lava. There are high cliffs surrounding the lava. On three points of the cliffs, bluish-purple dragons hang out. Each dragon does something different. There are multiple achievements for Sartharion; killing him, and killing him with one, two, or three dragons downed. We were not to the point where we could leave even one dragon up. It was hard with adds, and waves of lava, and knockbacks, and fire. January 9, 2011, we finally did it with all three drakes downed. 

But, at this time, we were still learning; still trying to escape the lava waves and the fire elementals. We'd killed the drakes and were standing around discussing the fight and what we needed to do. Someone asked who the main tank would be and I quipped, "Pinkel". The next thing I know, this pink-haired gnome is racing across the island toward Sarth. My initial reaction was, "What the h*^%?", not said into, I think we were using Ventrilo at the time. Then I realized what was happening, as did everyone else, and we charged in after her. 

I do not remember if Sarth ate her as a snack. I do not remember if we managed to down Sarth. I just remember, vividly, the pink pigtails running across the island toward what I knew was certain death. 

So, when Pinkel quipped that she was going to tank the dragon in EN, all these memories came flooding back. Okay then. If Pinkel wants to tank, Pinkel shall tank. 

We told her, last night, to tank Skorpyron, the first boss of Nighthold. Hunters kept misdirect up on her every time it was up. She didn't die, which prompted a couple of people to quip, "Nerf discipline priests". 

Now you know another guild story which has passed into legend. Pinkel, the priest tank. 


Dorelei Pinkel did an amazing job tanking the other night.

Trial of Style Returns

Gimmlette a posted Mar 4, 18

It feels like a very long time ago, but the mini-event, "Trial of Style" returns on Monday. For those of us more than a little addicted to transmog, (See below, *cough) this event is where we really shine. Even if you can't stand tmog, it's worth doing the event, particularly with guild members. Our foray, as a guild, into the "Trial of Style" will be Friday. We'll group up and join in. An added bonus, transmog costs are 0 this week, so you can prepare a number of looks for the guild's end of the month event at no cost to you. 

Just a note, we have a gear tab in the bank. 

You are welcome to take a look at what's there and pull anything which is either an upgrade or, more importantly, something you don't know the appearance of.

A word because I know someone will ask, the orange X's. That is from an add-on "Can I Mog It". For tmog afficionados, this is a fantasic add-on. When you get a piece of gear, it tells you if you have learned it or if it's new to you. It how so many of us, when we run raids and someone says, "Does anyone need this cloak?", several of us will pipe up, I'll roll on it for tmog. "Can I Mog It" has told us we don't know that appearance.

The 'x's' indicate this toon does not know these appearances. This is the bank toon which is a level 10 paladin so a lot of gear isn't known. If you have gear which you've tried to sell and you're not going to DE it, feel free to dump it on this tab. Every so often, we will go through the tab and winnow things, but all gear is welcome. We try to sell gear in the AH when we do a clean out. If it doesn't sell there, it's either de-d, depending upon enchanting mats we need, or we vendor it and stick the money in the guild bank. 

Low level greens are probably the most in demand, but you can put any in here. Low level crafted BoE stuff is good, too, and, if you are lacking mats to make a bunch of robes, for instance, just ask. We are sitting on a lot of cloth, excepting runecloth, embersilk, windwool, and silkweave. We don't have much of that stored off-site. (Here Gimm. 5,438 pieces of embersilk. You all know you want to hear me say, "I hate you all so much." when I open my mailbox and it explodes with cloth.) Netherweave. I'm drowning in netherweave. 

Anyway, I'm excited to run all my toons through "Trial of Style". It's fun, fast, and it's so much fun to see what pieces others have. "That is so cool! Where did you get that?" If you have questions about crafting stuff for the tab or about what kind of gear might be most in need, just ask. 


February Tmog Winner

Gimmlette a posted Mar 4, 18

Our February transmog theme was "Pick a Color of an Olympic Ring". Contestants built their transmog around one of the five colors. We had a wide array of colors and it was very cool to see people with the Olympic tabard. I think this was our biggest number of contestants. 

Unfortunately, you can't get that tabard anymore, other than the BMAH. I don't know that I've ever seen it for sale there, but it's possible. 

Gizmo was the judge. Mrs. Gizmo was sitting next to him offering her advice. First place went to Edish. 

Second place went to Sindiane. Third place went to Cyerthena. You can see all the entries in this thread

Thanks, everyone, for participating. March's contest is Friday, March 30th; same location. I am traveling that weekend so another officer will be running the contest. Edish (Hank) will be the judge. The theme is 

St.  Patrick's Day.
