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.

It's Going Away

Gimmlette a posted Dec 26, 17

It might be a spoiler, and you know I'm slightly averse to spoilers, but I feel this is something important. Argus will be leaving our skies with the upcoming patch. 

In the forum, I started a thread to document Argus from all the zones where you see it. I've posted a few, but, sadly, a lot of Azeroth is missing. As you are out and about, if you would stop and take a photo of Argus in the sky, I'd appreciate that. Kun-Lai, Vale of Eternal Blossoms, Dun Morogh, High Mountain, Loch Modan, and above, Burning Steppes, have photos I've taken. I know I have taken more, but just haven't gotten around to posting them. I'd like an album of photos from all applicable zones. If you don't know how to post to the web site, you can post them to Facebook and I'll get them up here, with proper credit. I've grown so used to seeing Argus in the sky, it's going to be odd not seeing it there.

Perki I have a bunch of shots, I can post them (and try to figure out where they are.)

Transmog Contest Upcoming

Gimmlette a posted Dec 25, 17

Remember, the December terrible transmog contest is fast approaching. The theme is "Ten Years of Gears". 

You need to have a piece of gear from each expansion: Classic, Burning Crusades, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor and Legion. 

There is a change of judges. Tarsan, who won second place last month, will be the judge. Your list of gear should go to him. 

We've been asked why submit a list. This is akin to an entry fee. If you take the time to submit a list, we know you're vested in the contest. It takes just a few minutes to jot down your items and send them to the right person. 

Meet in Stormwind at 9 p.m. in the same place we always meet. Yes, you can bring a horde toon, if you like. This is NOT my transmog for the contest. I have an even better one picked out.

We come to the end of Ten Days of Spectacular Death. We started at the end of Burning Crusades and are, quite happily, moving into the waning months of Legion, looking ahead to the Battle For Azeroth. I don't have an exact time for when our anniversary actually occurs. It was evening and I was spending my hard earned gold to get signatures on the charter. Amaera is the only person left who originally signed the charter. Back then, you needed 10 signatures and I know the charter cost way more than it does now. My co-founder, Superkind, claimed not to have much gold on him, so I paid for the charter and paid the lowbies in Goldshire who signed the charter. Back then, you could buy a signature for 2 gold. 

I think Wrath of the Lich King had been announced. I don't remember for sure. There was a column in the old WowInsider online magazine where you could submit recruiting statements and we decided to go for it. We advertised that we were new and we were looking to do old content because none of us had seen it and we knew guilds were not looking to do that stuff. They were gearing up in Black Temple and Sunwell for the coming expansion. We wanted to see Molten Core and Ahn Qirag. WowInsider published an article on us under their "15 Minutes of Fame" column. I remember, I was questing with Super in Shadowmoon Valley. He wasn't yet 70 and I was helping. (The Teron Gorefiend quest line was awesome.) I almost didn't believe the person who contacted me from Insider when they whispered who they were. 

As one could say, the rest is history. We've seen those classic raids and everything else, with the exception of the end of Kil'jaden in Tomb and the end of Antorus. Not bad for a little guild built on a premise of "going everywhere and doing everything" but being home by sundown. Some of you have been around for what would be considered a "very long time", by the ephemeralness of online gaming. We've had our ups and downs but we keep going. 

On Friday, December 15th, we're going to start a new Antorus because, although we did incredibly well, there's gear to get. 

This time, we can use strats for the bosses we've downed, but, maaaaayyybbbbeeeee we won't because we did so very well without strats. It appears we were 4th on the server to down the first boss. I'll take it. Guild Ox doesn't show we did it without strats, but we know. Meet by the raid entrance at 8:45. If you need help getting there, please be in Dalaran for summons. 

However long you've been here, I hope you agree it's been fun. Here's to another 10 years of Spectacular Death. I've always said, I'm going to play until the braziers go out in Ironforge.

A number of you have expressed a desire to run Emerald Nightmare because you have unfinished quests from that raid to complete. Your wish is our command. 

A year #9 of Spectacular Death arrived, so did Legion. We decided it would be a good idea to go back into the Nightmare and help you move those quests out of your quest log so you can fill it up with something else. 

Meet at the stone at 8:45. If we can blast through this quickly, we can head over to heroic Nighthold and work some more on Trillax or go all the way over to Tomb and attack Avatar.

Duellona I am hoping to be back from picking the kids up!!

When we last saw our intrepid adventurers, they were trying to get the achievement off Manneroth in Hellfire Citadel. 

After a lot of trial and error, it was determined that the achievement was not doable at 110 in a mythic setting. Or something like that. We just couldn't figure out how to do it. So we killed him to get the "Kill Manneroth in Mythic" achievement and vowed to come back. 

It's time. We'll be running achievements and we won't be doing this in mythic mode. It will be either normal or, maybe heroic. We have a good 15-18 people who lack this one achievement off Manneroth for the meta and we're going to get it. 

Meet by the stone in Taanan Jungle at 8:45. Manneroth, we're coming for you.
