One Shots: All the awesome you can handle

    
19

One day when I grow up, I hope to be half as amazing and down-to-earth cool as most of our One Shots community here. Each poster brings the awesome, week in and week out, and my eyeballs cannot stand it.

For example, Rafael can’t seem to share a Blade and Soul screenshot that doesn’t look as though it should be made into a poster for a blockbuster anime film. You know you’re truly all that if you can strike a pose while a boss monster lurks patiently in the background!

JonBuck will be caught up in FFXIV by 2021, it seems: “The new character I created to play through Heavensward is… through Heavensward. This is a screenshot from near the end of that storyline.”

SPOILERS: There will be the backs of people in it. Also, plants.

“For me, the most awesome thing in an MMO is usually the world,” said Michael18. “Especially in the ‘if you can see it, you can go there’ kind of world. Landmark was a great example. And it had even a ‘if you can see it, you can build your house there’ world!”

Real estate usually appreciates in value — unless the company that single-handedly controls the fate of your world decides to turn the lights off, that is.

Hikari is in a whole new world with shining, shimmering splendor. Now that that’s in your head, here’s her report: “Speaking of mounts, been playing a lot of Neverwinter since the release of the Gith. I got the flying carpet last night. Which of course means I needed a new outfit for it. The blue wasn’t working.”

“In all MMOs, seasoned players have realized that transmog/glamour/outfits are the true end-game,” posted Scott.

Welcome home, Scott. This is where you belong.

I’m sure I’m not the only one playing WoW Classic this week and taking a ridiculous number of screenshots of a landscape that has existed for a decade and a half now. For this week’s screenshot challenge, share your favorite biome and tell us why you love that the best!

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!

Yo! Thanks for the shout out. Blade and Soul makes screen caps super easy as the in-game function is very well developed. The result is perfect action screenshots.

For this week, biomes? Hmm.

Ok. Here is one from BnS, again. Surprise, surprise. This biome found in a secret area in Solak, the land of the Yun, is special because it is hard to quantify. It’s not verdant fields or snowy whiteout mountains. No. Instead, what we have here is a magical biome. Floating rocks, glowing grasslands and magical light sources are its features. It is a great place to relax!.

Should that not be ‘busy taking pictures of a landscape that has not existed for 9 years’ ?

There is something compelling about Kholusia (FFXIV), I’m not sure if it’s because it technically has 3 different “levels” (if you include the dungeon), but it’s one of my favorites in the expansion.

Plains, green, yellow or snowy, any kind of open fields, even if they are dry lands infested with gangs and hostile roboharvesters.

Yeah, even with all its barrenness, Westfall is a really nice zone.

And I’m saying this despite just having spent 1 and 1/2 days around that tower, dying countless times to vicious Dust Devils, Defias, and Murlocs, haha.

this week i farmed more cotton than ever before on the journey to make loads of money leveling up fabrication in legends of aria. mostly rn i want fluffy cotton.
narrator: fluffy cotton as a crap drop rate

also some selfies from a recent failed drug smuggling operation in star citizen 3.6.1. i’m kind of waiting for .2 to drop before i jump back in due to some of the bugs that made this adventure more perilous and less satisfactory than it should be relative to teh current state of things otherwise.

fave in game location? probably the bar at grim hex currently despite sometimes not having breathable atmosphere (which i find out the hard way usually). when i’m here it’s usually because i just finished a fun adventure with a buddy or two and we’re doing a bit of nightcap photo and video shooting to wrap it up.
