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.

And The Gnome Shall Lead Us

By Gimmlette ao - Posted Mar 4, 18

If you were along Friday night, when we did Emerald Nightmare, you know we started our tank rotation policy, which is outlined, for guild members, below. Dorvaklynx tanked with Hercules. She did a wonderful job, as Treemoose did last night. We are looking forward to having all people who want to tank, tanking content. 

When I announced Lynx as the tank, Pinkel quipped, "Awww. Pinkel's not tanking." I burst out laughting. There is a guild story about Pinkel tanking. It's a good one. 

We were learning Obsidium Sanctum. It's a Wrath of the Lich King-era dungeon. For those who have never been there, a black dragon is in the center of the encounter, on an island. 

Sartharion is surrounded by lava. There are high cliffs surrounding the lava. On three points of the cliffs, bluish-purple dragons hang out. Each dragon does something different. There are multiple achievements for Sartharion; killing him, and killing him with one, two, or three dragons downed. We were not to the point where we could leave even one dragon up. It was hard with adds, and waves of lava, and knockbacks, and fire. January 9, 2011, we finally did it with all three drakes downed. 

But, at this time, we were still learning; still trying to escape the lava waves and the fire elementals. We'd killed the drakes and were standing around discussing the fight and what we needed to do. Someone asked who the main tank would be and I quipped, "Pinkel". The next thing I know, this pink-haired gnome is racing across the island toward Sarth. My initial reaction was, "What the h*^%?", not said into, I think we were using Ventrilo at the time. Then I realized what was happening, as did everyone else, and we charged in after her. 

I do not remember if Sarth ate her as a snack. I do not remember if we managed to down Sarth. I just remember, vividly, the pink pigtails running across the island toward what I knew was certain death. 

So, when Pinkel quipped that she was going to tank the dragon in EN, all these memories came flooding back. Okay then. If Pinkel wants to tank, Pinkel shall tank. 

We told her, last night, to tank Skorpyron, the first boss of Nighthold. Hunters kept misdirect up on her every time it was up. She didn't die, which prompted a couple of people to quip, "Nerf discipline priests". 

Now you know another guild story which has passed into legend. Pinkel, the priest tank.
