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.

June Scheduled Events

Gimmlette ao posted Fri at 12:59

Wait...when did it get to be June? I am so not ready for summer. Half of a year has evaporated. 

Anyway, there are some things already on the June calendar. The officers are going to meet Monday, June 4 to finish filling in the schedule. As always, if there is something you'd like to run, or need to have run, please let me or Tarsan or Mizauki know.

Also, please take a look at your achievements. If you are into collecting achievements or mounts (There is an achievement coming in BfA for collecting 400 mounts. /sigh Oondasta! Just drop it already!), "Glory of the [insert expac] Hero" are reasonably easy for us to help you get. Dungeon achievements can be obtained during Timewalking events, too, and some of them need a group of people to accomplish. (Looking at you "Share the Love" from GunDrak.) There is a poll to the left where you can indicate interest in getting achievements from the various 5-mans. If you still need Legion dungeon achievements, let us know. Roar is not available, due to something called a wed-ding, until the middle of the month, but enough of us have done these to be able to shepherd people through them. 

The thinking is the pre-BfA events will start in July. Man, we are 2 months from Battle arriving. There's a poll for that, too. Click on the "next poll" at the lower right of the current poll. This means the Mage Tower artifact achievement will be going away. You have a month, probably. 

Balance of Power; that unforgivingly long quest chain. We have Emerald Nightmare and Nighthold events for both June and July scheduled. We have been asked to add more Antorus raids to the schedule. Thankfully, mythic +15 achievement is not going away and it's been requested we add 2 nights, back-to-back, to the schedule so we can try for this.

I am loathe to add too much to the schedule. I could pack something every single day. Seriously, there's enough content, both old and new, that people have indicated they want, that we could be doing some organized event every day of the month. How fast do you burn out? Frankly, I don't want to know. We already have attrition in the ranks because people are taking breaks. Add vacations and the general flow of life, and it's insane to think of having something every day. So, some things aren't going to get done. We plan off days into every week so you have the chance to do your own thing. 

HOWEVER, there are things on the schedule you need to know about. June 1 and 2 are Balance of Power days. The monthly transmog event is June 29th. Two very important events, pushed back from other months, will occur in June. 

Friday, June 15th, Deathtacular is running Hellfire Citadel. Friday is not a usual horde day so I'm drawing your attention to it now. We have people who have requested a Friday night horde raid. We also don't have the achievement for Hellfire so we need to get that. We need a bunch of people for the achievement. You must be level 100 to go. 

Saturday, June 16th, Legacy Onyxia. 

That's right. The Legacy group is going after the purple mosquito. You can only participate if you have a toon whose XP is frozen at 80. We will try to get people geared, but, frankly, there's not been much interest in the runs of Trial of the Champions. Ulduar gear is okay, but you should be taking advantage of the ToC runs. The gear is so much better. There is time to level a toon. I'm going to say this up front. I don't care what you level. We have all classes covered. Level something you like. Please don't ask me. I'm tired of repeating this. You should know by now. I will say that if you are leveling a straight tank, we have tanks. Make sure you can dps if you are not chosen to tank. This requires 2 tanks and 3+ healers depending upon group size. With the number of people indicating interest, we will have to run this on 25-man. 

So, mark your calendar for Saturday, June 16th. We'll meet outside her lair at 8:45. We will need gems, enchants, flasks, and food. I list will be posted next week. Eventually, the Legacy group will head into Icecrown Citadel, to see that close to how it was released, but that's not until, probably October or November. And if you are not playing your Legacy toons outside of when we do content, we have a storage guild specifically for toons like this. Ask me to add your little-played toons to that guild. 

This is a heads-up. More information and a new schedule will be added the first week of June. Battle for Azeroth is on the horizon. We just need to muck about and finish up some things to be ready.

Jaxdia Moar whelps! Handle it!
Souvlaki I have set myself a calendar reminder for the 16th called "Onyxia Wipe" :)

Caption This

Gimmlette ao posted May 6, 18

It's time for another "Caption This" contest. Here's the photo in need of a caption. 

As a prompt, in your caption, answer this question, "What are they guarding or waiting for?"

"Caption This" contests work thusly: 

1)  The contest starts today and will run a bit longer than other "Caption This" contests. It closes Sunday, May 27th. This gives you a lot of time to come up with a caption, or two, or three. 

2)  You can enter as many captions as you like. 

3)  All captions must be posted to this thread. Captions posted to this photo will not count. 

4)  Each caption must be a separate entry. It makes scrolling through for judging much easier. 

5)  I will be the judge. Winners will be announced on Monday, May 28th, when a NEW and EXCITING contest will be announced. Winners will get shiny stuff, and boy to we have a lot of shiny stuff to give away. (Side note: if you can make shiny stuff, I am happy to accept it and stick it off-site. Thanks to guild members, we have pets and mounts and bags and all sorts of things to give away. We are always on the look-out for more.) 

So, have at it. I want to see your captions.

Don't Forget

Gimmlette ao posted Apr 29, 18

This past weekend, we went back into Antorus to push farther into the raid. Our task was to down Imonar. 

It took all evening, but we did it.

Thanks for coming along everyone. Imonar is the final boss of the second wing. At our next Antorus raid, Tuesday, May 10th, we will start with Kin'goroth. We're still not pushing to finish Antorus before Battle for Azeroth drops, but making progress like this, gives us hope we can. 

Towards that end, I hate to have to point this out, but people seem to be forgetting. You must have your gear gemmed and enchanted. So many of you have pieces which are not gemmed or enchanted. That little extra makes all the difference. Remember the 7% wipe on Imonar? That might not have happened if everyone had been gemmed and enchanted. We are completely self-sufficient here so if you need enchants and gems, just ask. If you don't have a clue what kind of gem or enchant you need, ask. The wealth of knowledge in this guild will give you all sorts of ideas. I believe we might need some arkana in the bank for enchants. 

The other thing to remember is the Netherlight Crucible. 

Remember this thing? If you have received any kind of a relic upgrade, you need to go to the crucible and upgrade your weapon. I don't know why I checked but when I did, I discovered I hadn't upgraded any of my relics. The whole point of the crucible is to give your weapon, and, by extension, yourself, more power. So, the next time you're on the Vindicar, take a moment and make sure your weapon is fully upgraded. 

The schedule for May is up on the calendar. It's going to be quite wacky because of officers being away. We've put quite a few different things on the schedule, but there will be only one Antorus raid because of schedules. Please take a moment to review the schedule and sign up to come.

Best Beta Photo

Gimmlette ao posted Apr 29, 18

With the release of the beta, quite a few more of you have received invitations to the dance. Spectacular Death is on the beta server, Anduin. You are very welcome to come join us. As of Saturday night, we had 14 names in the guild. Every person can invite. Just do a "who" and "Spectacular Death" and you can see if someone is online. Also, if you ask in guild chat, we can hop over and invite your toon(s). 

Once dungeons and raids are announced, I'd like to try to test them. In the alpha, we were able to test what is going to be the PvP scenario. Neo pulled the worm and nearly got himself killed. It's an interesting scenario, one which some of you will like and some of you will hate. 

More quests are open than in the alpha. I see they fixed one of the big bugs I noticed, where a boat went through an island. On the other hand, there is a bug where a boat collides with the side of a tower. I found that quite amusing. 

I haven't found a poop quest, but I did find this. 

There is no quest associated with this, yet, because you just never know what's coming when the game goes live. The guy on the right is banging on the door. Neither of the men talk to you when clicked on. 

There's a lot of new details in the game now. It's been fun to poke around in places where I quested during in the alpha and see new things.

I'm excited for you to see what's coming.
