One Shots: A star is born

It’s time for another amazing Fashion Week here at One Shots! It’s like Shark Week, only with sleeker looks and less chum. Last time, I put out a call for the latest character outfits, and we certainly saw some terrific ensembles.

We’ll start off with Hikari, who soared right into my heart with this pic: “DCUO has a lot of ‘must haves’ when it comes to costume choices. For me, it was the Diana Troy cosmic material and the Starfire hair. Throw in a little orange, and you have the perfect Samhain attire.”

Sadly, two minutes later she was struck by sixteen drones piloted by unauthorized teenagers doing some sort of nighttime coordinated display. RIP.

Bel had fun with the fashion challenge. Perhaps too much fun. There were cops involved and all sorts of legal disputes and at least one paternity suit. But in the end, we got an array of neat-looking Warframe outfits that were inspired by, of all things, Toy Story.

This one is “Rhino Buzz,” which is also a controversial soda that you can purchase in Paraguay.

“For this week’s contest I picked up the cosmetic items in the subscriber store for Star Citizen,” said Deekay Zero. “I ended up with this stand-out end result when combined with my usual pick for ground combat armour.”

Paging Commander Shepherd. Commander Shepherd, please come to the bridge.

Rees Racer walks us through this Elder Scrolls Online shot: “This Covenant Scout costume I don’t always use, but it falls into that ‘10% of your clothes you wear 90% of the time’ unwritten rule. I pulled this one out of the wardrobe recently not only because I like it, but also because it has a seasonal (read: Halloween) palette I applied a couple of years ago. I like the simplicity of the black and orange for my Bosmer Nightblade, and it’s a practical consideration given her skills, too. Also, the leather armour with those colours looks fabulous.”

I do not approve of all of those extra U’s in that explanation, but I’ll let it pass.

BAM. You just leveled up, Toy Clown!

“For FFXIV, I did up a new glamour when I hit level 70 on Summoner yesterday and got a fancy screenshot! I’m sure it makes it hard to tell the details, but it’s okay!”

Speaking of the above, do you have any cool shots of your character leveling up? It’s sometimes hard to catch, but I always make an effort to document my toons at the moment they hit the cap. Let’s see some of those level-up shots for this week’s screenshot challenge!

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!

I’m always too slow to screenshot a level up, but here are some Griffon chicks. Or shouldn’t they be called Griffon puppies? Or Griffon puppy-chicks? XD

My partner and I are back in LotRO again, journeying from the Shire to adventure! Only 90 more levels to go!

Listening to the announcer when I hit 50: “Hey neatoooo…. Look they can’t all be !@#$ing gems.”

One of my favorite ones was “Danger! Danger! The bad!@# reactor core just went !@#$ing critical.”

Revel in the slightly less efficient UI design of ole while seeing multiple characters level up at the same time.

For bonus points, do you have a picture of a monster levelling up?

I never saw that one happen. Me or my group were never worth enough xp to the baddies that took us out I guess.

I did stumble upon this baddie one day tho. It ruins everyone’s day at some point.

Reminds me of when FFXIV:ARR came out and Arcanist was the newest class.

Back in my day, we didn’t have no fancy schmancy Broadway show when we leveled up. Naw, we just got a little button to click on and spend our points. And maybe we just ignored that button until we were good and gosh-darned ready to click on it…

…and we liked it that way!

Lol! A timely screencap given the current Diablo debacle. And your damn right! We didn’t need no fancy schmancy effects or animation to know we leveled!

You guys didn’t play Priston, did you?

Reader
Hirku

Nope, never even heard of it until now.

Don’t blame you. If i well recall, the leveling effe.ct was tame but it was easily perceptible

Getting to lev 100 in LOTRO was a big deal to me. I was in Dol Amroth in Gondor. To find this screenshot I went back in my old folders where I still keep hundreds of images for what I do consider my best years in the game. So many memories came flooding back. Those golden days of LOTRO are no more, the game is very different today. I look back to those times with nostalgia , a bit of sadness and, this must be said, with gratitude I was allowed to live in Middle-earth for so long.

Wow, that is awesome. Did you cut away the UI or were you able to manage to hide it right before the screencap? It is a tricky bit.

UI was hidden, F12 is your friend in LOTRO when you want to take nice screenies :)

Hard to get a snap shot of a toon leveling. I’m not quick enough on the screen cap trigger. I guess I’m getting old, heh. But I did manage this one on Haliee, my gunner from BnS.
