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 Was A-bubble-able.

Gimmlette a posted Mar 18, 19

We got much closer with Ulduar than in previous attempts. Flame Leviathan, Ignis, and Razorscale were on-shots. We wiped on XT, came back, and downed him. Then...........we had a little trouble with the hallways trash in the Antechamber. 

After that, Iron Council was a one-shot. Our nemesis, Kolgarm, took two tries. We crossed the "bridge of Gimm swearing", took our loot and decided to take on Auriaya -- the Cat Lady. We needed two attempts on her. That was Friday. 

Saturday, we struggled with Hodir and Thorim before getting them down. We skipped Freya and tackled Mimiron but only had one shot before our time ran out. 

Observations. We have the first part of Ulduar pretty secure. We have to work on clearing the Antechamber hallway trash better. That has ALWAYS killed us and it's a simple matter of remembering to pull the big adds back and keeping the casters locked down. We had EVERY CC in the game in the raid on Saturday. We should have had them so locked down they would have panicked and ran when it all broke. 

We have the Iron Council down. Next time, let's try to keep Steelbreaker up last. That gets tricky because of the debuff that goes on the tank with his fusion punch. When we did it the first time, the paladin tank called out "fusion punch -- dispell", whenever he was hit by it. Amaera was charged with dispelling the punch's effects. She was also his healer and that's all she did on that fight.

If you picked up the dics to get the key for the planetarium, run it. It's fun and very interesting. I think it takes a couple weeks. It's been years since I did it so I don't completely remember. 

We have to learn the Keepers now. Freya is going to take time. We won't be able to down her initially, with the trees up. That means we are going to have to clear all.the.trash. If you've never paid attention to it, there is a literal butt tonne of trash in her room. The trees aren't easy either and Freya summons add which have to be dealt with or you'll not get her down. The trio was our hardest mob pack because they have to be killed within 10 seconds of each other. 

After the raid on Saturday, officers were discussing how we want to proceed. We did exceptionally well. Unfortunately, even with no wipes, 4 total hours of raiding isn't going to clear this at level. It's probably a 6 hour raid. To the left is a poll. We need to know what you think you'd like to do the next time Ulduar comes around. We need your opinion. What could you commit to? We know some of you simply cannot raid on week nights. We know some of you will show up regardless of when we decide to raid. But we need opinions. Please look through the times suggested and pick the one you like the best, even if you'll come whenever we schedule the raid. 

The absolute best part of the raid was watching all the bubbles proc from Val'anyr, the healing mace. Pinkel was the first person in the guild to get it and we never raided with it when Ulduar was current content. In addition to the sheer fun to doing these bosses with my guild somewhat at level and having to figure out the mechanics of the bosses and how to survive that blasted hallway, we got to see Val'anyr proc. It was glorious. Here are some photos with bubbles.

Please let us know your thoughts on expanding this raid so we can plan for the next time it comes around.

If you have examined the guild calendar, you might notice the last event of March is Ulduar. This is not just any old Ulduar raid. This is a Herald of the Titans raid. 

For the few people in the back who aren't quite sure what this is, let me explain. 
Step 1:  Level a toon to 80.
Step 2:  Freeze its XP. You do this by going to the rogue in the battle room in Stormwind Keep. 
Step 3:  Accumulate gear no higher than ilevel 100. 
Step 4:  Sign up for the March 30th event.
Step 5:  Down Algalon and all your toons have the "Herald of the Titans" achievement. 

Here is lil'Gimm all ready for Ulduar with the exception of gems and enchants. I got the title on Epicurian, but I'm ready to go again on this character since big Gimm was too big when we decided we wanted to do this. 

So how do you get gear? Well, first you tell myself, Tarsan, or Mizauki that you're ready with your character. Then, we run you through Ulduar and Naxxramas for gear. These places have the appropriate gear for this encounter. (There are also battle pets, the non-existant Mimiron's head off Yogg, and transmog items.) 

Your gems and enchants can be Cataclysm quality and we have a number of people who can make the right gems and enchants for you. Just tell us you're ready and we'll mobilize. You have four weeks and with the faster leveling, even if you make a character this week, as long as you stick with it, we can have your character ready to go. A lot of people have toons from the last time we did this still at level 80 and willing to run this again for those who want the title. These little-played toons can go into the storage guild, Eats Bacon, if you want to keep it just for Legacy events. 

I will be needing Cataclysm-era herbs, fish and meat to cook and make flasks for this group. If you have some to donate or wish to help, those are good things to farm and stick on the first tab of the bank. 

The Algalon fight is one of my favorites. I love the introduction to it and it's just cool. If you have questions I didn't cover, ask here or hit up myself, Mizauki, or Tarsan and we'll be happy to answer them. Depending upon interest, we can do this again in April if you can't make the March event, but I think we're getting down to not many people needing this anymore so the Legacy group is going to turn its attentions to a different raid. Hello Arthas.

Cross Off Raids

Gimmlette a posted Mar 4, 19

Well, we can cross that off the "to do" list. 

I thought it was a lot of fun. Of course we way outgear the place so some bosses didn't get into phase 2, but we downed everyone in, roughly, 90 minutes. The Gul'dan fight has always been visually amazing. In mythic, it's doubly so. 

Note the eyeball in the background. That motif has continued into Uldir with an eye of C'thun behind Zek'voz. Trust me on this. Somewhere, in the thousands of screenshots I've taken, is an image of C'thun's eye on the wall behind Zek'voz. I thought I posted it to FB because some of you didn't believe me, but it's true. I'll find the screenshot when I'm looking for something else. 

What's left of old content? Well, we have that very annoying place, Tomb of Sargeras, unconquered in mythic. That end boss, Kil-something or other, just kills us without a second thought so we set it aside last year and haven't decided when we're going back in. 

Here's the thing about Kil'jaden and mythic Tomb. We're struggling against Zul in Uldir. If we can get Zul down without a huge struggle or a massive amount of random luck, we have a chance to blast Kil'jaden through the phases that wipe us off his platform. He would never get a chance to do those phases for very long. But, we'd need massive amounts of dps. So, by working to raise your dps for Zul, you've given us a shot at clearing mythic Tomb. If we struggle against Zul, we're going to struggle against KJ and it's not worth the repair bills to go in there and wipe continually. 

Looking ahead, we can probably work on mythic Antorus. We haven't cleared it heroically, but we could probably skip that and go right into mythic. The thing about mythic is we can only take 20 people so you'll need to be quick about signing up if you have an interest in coming along 

Now, speaking of clearing things, Deathtacular did this. 

Raids left to clear are Baradin Hold in Tol'Barad and Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Orgrimmar and then we'll be solidly in Warlords content where there are a number of things we haven't done as a guild. To clear Baradin Hold, we need to take Tol'Barad from the Alliance. That's one battleground where Alliance seems to have a bit of an upper hand. It's a level 85 raid so if we can nab the battleground, we can take a lot of people into BT. Heroic Garrosh is level 90 but we need at least 18 people to make a guild group to get the achievement. So, we'll need all hands on deck when we go do that. 

When we head into Warlords and beyond content, we'll need at least 16 people because the achievements require that 20% of the allowable raid numbers be guild members. So, if you're looking for something to do, level those horde toons to 100 so we can wander through Warlords and beyond content and get achievements. 

Thanks to everyone who participated in both of these events. I love getting achievements and I hope you do, too.
