Spectacular Death Tabbard

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 Guidelines as well.


For any questions about the above information, please talk to Gimmlette or any officer. If you are interested in hopping on the bus for the ride, please fill out our application. You will be contacted by Gimmlette or the membership officer after the application is received.

Uldir on Saturday

Gimmlette ao posted Feb 7, 19

We got Vetis down so we are on to Zul. 

By all accounts, Zul is the hardest fight in this raid. It's hugely healing intensive. We need lots of dispells. Why Blizzard does this kind of thing, I don't know. For a time, it was "bring the player, not the class". Now, we are back to "bring the class because if you don't, you're screwed". 

Anyway, we're in Uldir, at Zul, on Saturday at 9 p.m. You know the drill. Please be outside the raid by 8:45 so we can hand out potions. You need to be gemmed and enchanted. Enchanters, please review our stash of ring enchants. I don't think we have everything we could have. If you need a gem or enchant and don't see it in the bank or can't remove it from the bank, speak up. We're self-sufficient here so you never need to go to the AH for items. 

We also almost never ask you to watch fight videos, but I'm suggesting you do that for this fight. 

This is a good video and it might help you understand what is expected of us in order to get past Zul. We are not going back into Dazar'alor until we clear Uldir. We need people who can dispell so if you have a toon that can do this, please consider bringing it. Your action bars nedd to be set up so you can find your dispells quickly. I don't want to hear in chat, "I don't know what my dispell is." I'm telling you right now, I will call you out on that -- privately -- but I will call you out. Learn what your toon can do so you can be an asset. This is not a farming run so little played toons -- where you don't know their buttons -- can get gear. Don't be "that guy". 

This is going to be stressful. We got him to, maybe, 70% our first concerted effort. Please come ready to work. There will be NO late arrivals unless you have cleared this with Tarsan, Mizauki, or myself. If you are late, even if it was unintended and you signed up, you will not go. Sorry, but we have a boss to kill and it is disruptive to add people after we have engaged trash. Also, if you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, we will not add you. We run on momentum and stopping to add someone breaks that. 

Here we go. Let's down Zul.

For those who don't know what this achievement is, here is the original achievement. 

But, with the change to Ulduar which consolidated 10 and 25 man runs into one unit, the achievement was changed. We tried it before Ulduar went to a consolidated raid, but tuning was terrible and we weren't able to last through the second phase. Things just hit the tank too hard. 

In discussing events we'd like to run, we wondered how Herald of the Titans was doing. Had it been removed from the game with the retooling or was it still available? It's a great fight and requires attention not only to the raid mechanics, but also your character. It's not easy to get. 

Your officers discussed it and we'd like to run it again, for those people who don't have this achievement and would like it. You will need to level a character to 80 and freeze the XP. Then, you'll need to gear it up. Zylostout has posted to the forum, a guide which discusses everything needed to qualify for the new achievement. 

Algalon's health and damage has been adjusted. Back in the day, 10-man Ulduar dropped 226 gear. You couldn't wear higher than that. You could, however, have 232 weapons. With the item squish, that's been changed. You can't wear anything higher than item level 100. This goes for jewelry AND trinkets. We will also be needing flasks, gems, and food, when we get to the actual attack. 

We will be doing an occasional gearing run between now and the end of March, when we are considering running this. I strongly recommend you scroll down to the bottom of the guide and look over the gear, gem, and consumables listing for each class and spec. Note: Some things listed are from Icecrown Citadel. We have opted not to run this on our Legacy toons. The goal was Ulduar, then Onyxia, than Icecrown because gear from Ony has a higher ilevel than ICC gear. We struggled with Ony. It's going to take either breaking the groups in half or a minimum of 18 level 80 toons in order to get her down. We simply cannot do it with 15 or 16 people in a 25-man raid. For my part, I'm going to forgo any ICC gear because I want to keep Little Gimm as she would have been during that time period. 

A number of people in the guild have the achievement and have toons which they have kept at that level for just such an occasion. We welcome all guild members to come along. This truly is a mark of achievement for you. If you have any questions, please talk to myself or Tarsan.

Black Temple Timewalking

Gimmlette ao posted Feb 2, 19

Oh boy oh boy! Black Temple Timewalking returns February 21st and 22nd. We got as far as Bloodboil the last time. We want to see if we can get farther. This is the perfect time to haul out of storage, all those Legion legendary gear items you got. I'll be running with Thori'dal and if you have the Warglaives of Azzinoth, bring those along. Please make sure whatever gear you bring is gemmed and enchanted as it can be. For some items, particularly, if you are going to run with a set from Burning Crusades, you can enchant way more than you can with Battle for Azeroth gear. 

Please sign up. We can take at least 25 people into this raid. The more we have, the more dps we can produce and maybe we can get past Bloodboil's blood boil. If you've never saw this raid when it was current, Timewalking is as close as you can get. I think the battle above is my favorite. 

If you have gear questions, you can talk to me, Tarsan, or Mizauki.

January Transmog Contest

Gimmlette ao posted Jan 31, 19

The January transmog contest was another "anti-tmog" event. In this contest, you needed to show up in all crafted gear, no transmogging allowed. It was fun to see what stuff was crafted by out contestants. 

Rainsong was the judge. From left to right: Jorsha, Angelinalynx, Angelous, Little Gimmlette, Glamdolf, and Piickles. Glamdolf was the winner with Jorsha in 2nd and Piickles in 3rd. 

February's transmog contest is "Tmog with a toy". Now, you cannot use a toy which changes your appearance. So things like the Super Simian Sphere, Brazier of Dancing Flames, or Bones of Transformation cannot be used. But there are so many things you can use like the Toy Train Set, the Honorary Brewmaster's Keg, or the Portable Audiophone. If the toy puts a hat on your head, you can use it so long as you incorporate it into your tmog. Remember, many of these toys have a duration of only a couple minutes with a cooldown of several hours. Make sure you time your toy to know when you can activate it relative to when you're called up for us to oogle your gear. If you have questions about whether your toy is acceptable, please ask. All gear letters should be sent to Glamdolf. 

The transmog contest will be Friday, February 22nd at 9 pm in Stormwind. Check out the tmog thread for the transmogs from January.

Dorelei Here are the transmog lists from the contest. These were all CRAFTED items. Good job everyone! Jorsha: Jeweler&rsq...

Let's Travel

Gimmlette ao posted Dec 31, 18

After the big 10th anniversary trip to Walt Disney World, we took a break in 2018 from an organized guild meet-up. I know a few people got together on their own, but a big event just wasn't in the cards. I need a break from running these things. 

Fortunately, Wendrah and Zylostout have offered to host a party at their house. We will be meeting on Saturday, July 6th around 3:30-4:00 p.m., and staying until 9:30-10:00. 

They are located in Goodwood, Ontario, Canada. You can see -- on the above map -- that it's northeast of Toronto. If you are coming from the US, you MUST have a valid passport to enter into Canada. Look what I did today. 

My hair is currently cobalt blue and it was important to have my passport photo reflect blue hair. Anyway, if you are thinking of coming, get your passport now. Go to your local post office and pick up the forms. Get your photo taken and fill out the forms. It can take 6 weeks to obtain one and, unfortunately, there's a lot of problems with some people getting passports. Doing it now will mean if there is any question about the form, you have time to rectify it. 

There are a number of hotels in the area so, if you are interested in coming, Zylo, Wen, or me, can email you a list of accommodations. I intend on being there. I'm just not sure when I'm leaving Chicago. I need to do some genealogy stuff in Michigan so I'm not sure if I will do it before or after the event. We picked July 6th because of the July 4th holiday. We thought some of you might take July 5th off and make a long weekend of it. There are a lot of things to do in the Toronto area including the Toronto Zoo and Niagra Falls. Beyond going to Zylo and Wen's, we haven't decided if we are doing anything else but will make a decision at the end of May. 

Now for another travel item. Several of you are interested in Star Wars Land, which opens in the fall of 2019 at Disney World. I was at Disney in November. Behind this green wall is the construction of a brand new transportation hub at Hollywood Studios. 

(That's Faience on the left and Flinka on the right.) It's all part of an expansion of Hollywood which has seen the opening of Toy Story Land. 

We didn't ride the Slinky Dog roller coaster as the only times we could get Fast Passes were when we had other things planned, but it looks fun. I was not going to stand in line for 90 minutes. My time limit is 45 minutes. We did eat breakfast at Woody's Lunchbox. It was good. The area was packed so we didn't wander about. We got breakfast and then headed to the Rock 'n Roller coaster. 

Star Wars Land is being built over by Muppet 3D and the Star Tours area. 

Oh wait. These guys aren't from Star Wars, but they were over by one of the future entries into this land. Ironically, the official Disney photographer who was doing Dale 'n Chip's (That's how they are standing.) photos also turned to his right and took official photos by the future entry. Here we are using the force. What do you mean "That's not how it works."?

Because several of you have asked, I'm putting up a poll to the left about whether you would be interested in another guild trip to Disney World in 2020; probably fall, like we did in 2017. This would be, roughly, a year after Star Wars Land opens and that might lessen the crowds somewhat. The poll is found AFTER the Legacy Raiding poll. You need to click "Next Poll" at the bottom right corner. I will utilize the services of our great travel agent, Hollie Holmes. As with 2017, we'd have a character breakfast, a "goodbye" dinner, and do the Halloween party UNLESS you think you want to go during the Flower and Garden Festival in March. Having done both, it's worth it to attend these special parties. They are an extra $100 on top of all other fees. 

The poll will be up for a month, so you have time to think about it. At the July meet-up, I can provide estimated costs and deadlines for payment. I'll also make a selection of resorts. It was nice to stay together. There are deals at a lot of the resorts for fall -- except at French Quarter. /sigh It never goes on sale. I liked the resort, a lot, but maybe we want to go somewhere else. 

So, step 1:  Get your passport so you can come to the July meet-up. If you know for sure you're coming or if you think you will try, please comment so Wen and Zylo have something of a head count. Step 2:  Think about another WDW guild trip. I won't have cost numbers until July so the emphasis is on splashing in the pool at Zylo and Wen's. 

Yes, both events are family friendly. We promise not to crack too many off-color jokes. If you have questions, post them here. I'll do my best to answer them.
