One Shots: The miseries of camping


Isn’t camping wonderful? Reconnecting with nature, smelling like smoke, and sleeping with a canvas wall between you and predators? Obviously, it’s not for everyone, even seasoned adventurers in MMORPGs who would rather bunk in their luxurious estates than rough it in the wild.

When it comes to setting up a tent in Lord of the Rings Online, count Hirku out. “C-c-couldn’t have a nice t-tavern challenge for O-o-o-one Shots. N-n-noooooo, had to be c-c-c-camping!”

“Good ol’ times of leveling in Guild Wars 2,” Miol shared. “You would find some dutiful NPCs, camping out on a distant trade route, whose biggest concerns are giant spiders, where you would gladly go to their home caves and toss them around!”


Minimalistway is getting indoctrinated into the supreme weirdness that is Final Fantasy XIV’s Hildibrand quests.

“I’ll leave this screen, it’s from best quest line ever, there are funny quests in MMOs and there is Hildibrand Manderville quests, these quests made me LOL for real.”

Back to camping real quick, IronSalamander8 is off to summer camp in what I think is Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. Looks quaint and rustic, just the sort of place to build character and spread poison ivy!

“Well, guess what?” Rafael asked. “I’m camping in Anthem. Unfortunately, it is a bit of a ghost town here with the bones of broken dreams littering the ground literally. How ironic, no? On the other hand, I did get a swanky new Mass Effect armor set! Like any N7 fan, I’m easily distracted when I can dress like a Quarian. Well, a colorful Quarian.”
