One Shots: Counting sheep


I might not pick one of Final Fantasy XIV’s Lalafell as an ideal combat companion, but when it comes to staging adorable photogenic moments? I would say that they are ideal.

Reader Vexia nodded off to a bunch of fluffy sheep in today’s headlining pic: “It’s totally worth it ’cause then you can count them all to fall asleep. I guess this qualifies as being ‘in my element’ too: surrounded by fluffy cuteness.”

Ack. We need a palette cleanser! Truck in some gratuitous gore and oversized spiders!

Caelium stepped outside of MMO boundaries to bring us this expedition from Rise of the Tomb Raider. We have come a long way from low-count polygons sharp enough to cut steak.

“What better natural element for a tomb raider than… a tomb? Or possibly the dangerous trek to get to said tomb!” Caelium says.

Did I mention how many incredible screenshots you all delivered last week? It was one of the most difficult weeks I’ve ever had in terms of picking just five pictures. I couldn’t resist including this picture from Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, however!

“Let’s continue the trend of amazing Path of Fire night skies shall we,” Xephyr submitted.

“I’m jumping around MMOs right now, looking for my next extended stay,” Toy Clown wrote. “Currently checking out all the changes in ArcheAge and made a Warborn. I really like them and the half-demon race fits well in desert environments.”

Pink ponytail queen Utakata took me up on last week’s challenge of, “Ponder that question for a few and then find or take a screenshot to show a perfect combination of environment and personality for this week’s challenge” with this WildStar tableau.

“Be careful what you wish for!” Utakata said. “You can almost hear everyone that didn’t /upvote this groan though.

For this week’s screenshot challenge, let’s see pictures of your characters taking… unorthodox methods of transportation. Ever parachute into a zone? Sneak onto a submarine? Find yourself swallowed by an enormous slug? Let’s see them and hear your stories!

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 with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
