One Shots: Moonglow

I don’t say it enough: I am truly impressed by how our readership manage to bring out the beauty in MMORPGs through their screenshots. It takes an eye for detail and a feel for a good shot that elevates certain pictures above the rest.

As an example of this excellence, I present Toy Clown’s headlining shot from Black Desert: “One of the reasons I enjoy the game is because of the ocean content. Here is my character releasing a lantern from her fishing boat.”

Small moon, go up and meet big moon! I think the two of you will be very happy together.

I am just the worst in triggering emotes and swiveling the camera in time to grab a picture before my character is done with whatever gesture he or she is doing. So I’m always a wee bit in awe of players who get good emote pics, like Justin does here from Final Fantasy XIV. Such high spirits!

Last week I asked for pictures of ships and sailing vessels, and we certainly saw a wide variety of those — including this one of zombie craft in Guild Wars 2.

“Together with the Order of Whispers, we onced lured some undead Risen and their ships with a false lighthouse signal, wondering how long would they take to get there with those torn, almost useless sails,” said Miol. “I guess undead aren’t easy to win over for things like efficiency!”

BalsBigBrother took a picture of himself at the Big Kids table in Secret World Legends: “I may have made my character a little too short and I might need a booster seat or something so that I can eat at the new fancy Agartha restaurant.”

There are plenty of us small folk on the Massively OP staff, so we relate, Bals. We really do.

To round things out this week, Jon Sleeper takes us to Risa in Star Trek Online for a little summer fun on a hoverboard. So remind me, with the holodeck and all, why did Star Trek characters need to actually physically go to planets for recreation? I’d be all about creating worlds 1/20th scale and then stepping all over them while roaring like Godzilla.

You need a screenshot challenge and I need more pictures for next week, so let us come together and collaborate! This week, why not share your best bug pictures? Small, oversized, freaky, or cute, let’s devote a little real estate to insects, spiders, and worms of all types!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Bugs are gross, but — and this probably isn’t a bug — I have this interesting thingamabob. I don’t have the XIV v1.0 tattoo but the game does recognize that I already own the game (didn’t need to buy it, just needed to sub) and I did receive this handy dandy moogle mail saying thanks for buying the original XIV.

Does it not do the tattoo anymore? I seem to recall that it was a tat on the back of the neck and I didn’t see it during character creation or whatever.

It’s not at all important other than being an issue of curiosity for me.

Haven’t found any bugs yet but here’s a shot I love from that moment you are just dropping out of Hyperspace in SWTOR. This was back when I was doing Eyefinity mode.

So after almost 4 years of playing in The Secret World, I finally got around to creating some alts to see how the other two-thirds live. It was a real trip to just stroll into the “enemy” HQs and see characters and scenery I haven’t seen before. I’ve got them parked there with their tutorials all done, ready to be activated when I need some variety and *cough* daily marks *cough*.

Lol! Is that for real? Or just a perspective bug.

It’s for real. It looks like he used a Tellarite as a base, and they’re already short.

Taking in the sights of Stormblood while playing with /gpose. I took a ton of screenshots atop the inn roof, since it took me a while to successfully get up there. I’ve yet to attempt hopping up Kugane Tower as I’ve heard it’s much more difficult, and I had a hard enough time just getting on top of the inn–however, the scenery and private baths were certainly worth the effort!

Is that a new Miqo’te ear option…or some other race in neko mimi mode? o.O

That is the Tamamo Headband on my Au Ra. It’s the big trend right now as you can purchase it with fragments that can be farmed from a fate in Yanxia or if you’re really lucky, get all the fragments you need in one go by catching the elusive Foxy Lady fate when it’s up.

You can also buy a really cute fox minion and stuffed furnishing with the fragments.

Oh a kitsune! Thought those ears looked a little more robust. O.o

Thanks for explaining that. :)

Well, this ship sure makes me feel like a bug. That’s the Universe-class, about 3km long, next to my new T6 Connie, the USS Journey.

And the award for ugliest ship in Star Trek goes to…

The Klingon and Romulan versions of this are so much better.

Hidee Ho everyone. I missed out on the Sunday tradition that is One Shots last week, but not this week.

So, for this week, I bring you Pinchy from BnS. Now, I don’t really remember the entomology of Scorpions, but this nasty oversized poison dealer is at least worthy of consideration.

My brave little Lyn, Raliee won’t back down as you can see, but I don’t think his raccoon tail quite matches up against Pinchy’s stinger from hell.
