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.

You want to know, because it's on the calendar, what, exactly, is this upcoming "Gathering Day Extravaganza" we have posted. It's a fun way to fill up the bank with mats so we can make more stuff we can use. 

Here's how it will work. At 9 p.m., you will fan out into Battle for Azeroth content. Fish, mine, skin, herb. You have one hour to gather as many mats of any kind as you can carry. At 10 pm, you will be called in. Here's where it gets really fun. 

Officers will be planted around Boralus. You need to turn in what you have collected to the RIGHT officer. No, we won't tell you until 10 who gets what. Yes, once you've found the correct officer, you can let chat know where they are. 

We're going to be awarding prizes randomly based on who turns in what. All these mats are going back into the guild to make raiding materials. Take a look on tab 2 and see what we could use. This is all about helping make us more self-sufficient and, by extension, making us better in our upcoming raids. And, it's a no-stress event. 

Come join us. Explore those places you haven't been and find materials we can use. 


Zyleia Pick all the flowers! Or alternatively: a field trip from the mines! Ack! The sun! It burns!
Gimmlette a Straight up what you gather.
Perki Straight up whatever we gather? No scrapping? (just curious, because that would actually waste time.)

Back on August 10th, there was a transmog contest horde side. This celebrated Deathtacular's 10th anniversary. The theme for that transmog was "Make a transmog which would scare the Alliance". 

Seven toons came to Thunder Bluff to show off their scary transmog. It was so hard to pick a winner. In the end, Jorsha won on the basis of that scary helm. 

Winnings have been distributed, so hop onto your hordies and raid your mailbox. 

For September, I've opted to make a change. The theme was a riff on our summer "Wish You Were Here Contest" (Winners will be announced and prizes dispersed soon.), but, not that we've had a chance to run around Boralus, I think the theme is too complicated. So, I've opted to change it. First of all, the contest will be held here. 

You all know where this is. Next week, there will be a lot of activity here for "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" on September 19th. Our tmog contest will be held on the 28th at 9 pm. We're going to adopt the theme and you should all come dressed a pirates. Remember, this MUST be transmog, not something which alters your appearance. I've been getting a lot of really great looking seafaring gear. 

And, to make it more realistic, get yourself a parrot battle pet. If you don't have one, send me an in-game letter. We have quite a few stored off-site. We might, after the tmog contest, hit the Gurubashi Arena while we're here. 

See you all on the 28th.

I took a year off, but "Win Gimm's Gold" is back by popular demand. If you're new to Spectacular Death, here's how it works. 

I am a devout Iowa Hawkeyes fan. The Big 10 season starts on the 22nd. On that date, this program will begin. How does it work, you ask? It's simple. 

There are 9 games in the season; September 22; October 6, 13, 20, and 27; November 3, 10, 17, and 23. At least one of these games is a night game. You need to log into WOW in the evening of the game. If Iowa has won, and you're online, you win their score in gold. This is NOT from the guild bank. This is from my pocket. For the night game, it will be either afternoon on Sunday, or Monday evening. I've given away upwards of $5,000 gold per season based on how many people are on line and how big the winning score turns out to be. 

So, you, too, can win a piece of this. You want 1) Iowa to win and 2) Iowa to win big. "Win Gimm's Gold" kicks off on Saturday, September 22nd. 

What an Ending!

We did it. 

We went over raid time and came within seconds of Argus' enrage timer; an enrage timer we knew all too well. We downed him. This netted us the guild achievement. 

It has been an amazing journey through Legion. There might have been an explosion at the end, when Sargeras was sucked away, but I'd be a fool to think we've seen the last of him or of the Burning Legion, in whatever form it takes. Besides, there's that whole sword in Silithus thing which is not resolved in any of the cinematics, at least so far. There's supposed to be one more coming, on Queen Azshara, but that might not come until patch 8.1 is close. She was hinted, at BlizzCon last year, to be a raid boss. 

So, where do we go from here? We are taking a well-earned break from raiding. Monday night, 6 p.m. EDT, we will be thrown into the war whether we want to be or not. (Bets on server stability, anyone?) This is a world-wide launch, the first of its kind. Please refrain from griping on Facebook. This is bound to be fraught with problems. Then, there is the usual Tuesday reset and finally, on Wednesday, August 15th, we get the chance to play, or maybe not. Quite a few of us remember the server instability that was Cataclysm's launch. Just roll with it. 

Our next official raid will be Tuesday, September 4th, although we might do some pick-up stuff in between today and now. The Terrapin 500 is Saturday, August 25th at 9 p.m. in Ironforge. You need a sea turtle to participate, but come over and cheer for the racers. I could still use a race announcer and an official photographer so I can race. Talk to me if you can help

We did it. We cleared normal groups of an expansion before the next one dropped. I'm so proud of us. I hope you are, too. 


Rhagz Understood... Thanks !
Souvlaki Grats!

Tmog on Friday

Gimmlette a posted Aug 5, 18

Just a reminder, the transmog contest is this Friday. That's 2 weeks early, but there's something happening and we figured you might be a wee bit busy. The theme is "Make a Tmog Which Scares the Alliance". This is a horde-only tmog contest in recognition of the fact that Deathtacular, our horde guild, celebrates it's 10th anniversary on the 10th. 

Send your tmog lists to Heilandcoo. We will meet in Thunder Bluff. 

This is a nice place. It's over by the blimp dock. Be ready to go at our usual start time of 9 p.m. Alliance is welcome to come watch. Yes. That should go over well.
