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.

Hello. 'ello. Harrow. Howdy

Gimmlette a posted Sat at 17:31

Our guild twitter account, @SpecDeath, has seen an explosion of new followers. If you've come here to find out what silliness we're up to, hello. Hi. Howdy. 

I was looking for photo to post to twitter and found this. 

This is Cipiter, at least that's what the caption says. I'm struggling to remember the toon. Kaz helped me remember the tabard was from the Bejing Olympics, 2008. BlizzardCS further confirmed you got the tabard for participating in the battleground during the two weeks of the Olympics.

I think that was the last time they offered Olympic-themed items, although Canadians might have received something for Vancouver in 2010. We also got the Spirit of Competition pet. It's too bad this can't be done with every Olympics, but it would mean a new design every 2 years. It would be rather cool but I understand if their focus is on other items. 

I also found this photo. 

Guild co-founder, Superkind, is on the far right. I don't think any of the other people are still in SD. It would help that knowledge if I could remember who these people are beyond human, gnome, DK, dwarf, human. 


Minaithelan still can retrieve that tabard if you had it from one of the tabard vendors next to the guild npcs in capital citys .

The first time I landed in the nearly deserted new Dalaran, besides the updated look and vibrancy of colors and textures of the place, and the new fountain by the "Alliance" bank, there was just something else different about the place. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Over the weekend, when we were conducting our scientific experiments to see how far we could glide after jumping off new Dalaran, I began to think I'd figured it out. Tonight, after running Epicurian through the Khadgar scenarios, I took at look at new Dalaran. I believe it's bigger. I think the roads are, at least 20 if not 25% wider. The whole place has a "large" feeling about it. What do you think?

That brought up an idea for a contest. New Dalaran is going to be the hub of our battles against the Legion. Once you've done the Khadgar scenarios, there are demons attacking the city. 

You're an agent for "Dalaran Realty". Write some ad that will cause people to consider making their home in a flying city attacked by demons. Real estate agents always say it's about location. Funniest one gets sent, along with the above photo, to BlizzCaps and there's probably some gold and gaily wrapped goodies in it for the top three ads. You can post an ad as often as you like, just make every ad a new comment. We'll run this contest from now through next Monday with the winners announced next Tuesday. 

Make me want to move to a city beset by demons.

Gamescon 2016 Preview

Gimmlette a posted Aug 17, 16

There were a number of interviews with Blizzard personnel regarding Gamescon happening right now in Cologne, Germany. This is the Legion interview. 


Another Poll

Gimmlette a posted Aug 16, 16

By now, you've all had a chance to get thoroughly confused and then completely immersed in the new wardrobe/transmog system. The most common issues are how to click off the helm, shoulders and back, and how to filter. With the first issue, you need to go to the transmog vendor. Neither the yak nor the guy in your garrison will help you. Open up the panel. In the upper left of the first page, on the first pane you see, there will be an eye. Click on it. That removes the item from view. I've had problems getting it back once I click it off, but that's how you get rid of the display. 

Now, for the sorting part. You'll need to click on the horse's head in your tool bar. That opens up your collections tab. Click on your wardrobe. At the upper right, you'll see "Filter". You can then filter by all sorts of different parameters. I tend to forget this function in on my panel so I'm relaying this information to you in the hopes it will be implanted in my head and I won't get frustrated when I can't remember right away. 

So, this brings up a question. You're out questing and you come across an item with this in the description. 

How many of you learn it even though you got the achievement, have 10 pages of items in that slot and really don't need more? We wonder if there will, eventually, be an achievement for learning ALL the available items in a particular slot. I admit, I learned this. I'll never use it. It doesn't meet my aesthetic, but I didn't know it. 

The poll is to the left behind the one asking which cinematic provoked more feeling from you. Click "Next" at the lower right of the poll box. 

Just a note about raids this weekend, if you are planning to bring a demon hunter, their gear must be ilevel 650 (This won't be a problem.) AND it needs to be enchanted/gemmed. If you would like to bring a newer level 100, they need to be at an ilevel of 650. We can help you get there, but you need to speak up.

It would also be a good idea to hit up one of the gear optimization sites and read up on your spec. Some specs have had what they need in enchants, gems, food, changed. If you usually stacked crit in Warlords, maybe you need mastery now. You won't know unless you read up. This needs to be done BEFORE 8:30 on Friday or Saturday night. I won't invite you if you are scrambling to get your gear ready. We can make food. We can make gems. We can make enchants. If you need help, just ask. BUT, this needs to be done now. We are going to try to take down the boat in heroic Blackrock Foundry and pick up where we left off in Hellfire.

The Terrapin 500 is Saturday, August 27th. You need to have the Sea Turtle. No other mount will do. If you'd like to try for that or the riding turtle with a bit more of a drop rate, I'm very happy to have a fishing raid group in my garrison.

We can do this for an hour to see if more mounts drop. 

Finally, if you have not seen the horde side of the Broken Shore event and you aren't inclined to roll a horde or don't have one high enough to get into that scenario, I have provided two links for you. This one is the horde Broken Shore and this one is back in Orgrimmar. These two cinematics flesh out the Broken Shore and the cost for both Horde and Alliance. It's "just" a game, but I have never wanted to off a character more than I want to off Gul'dan right now.
