One Shots: Bow before Zuul!


We’ve all certainly met plenty of kings, queens, and other rulers in MMOs, and as a greater community, we’ve come to one unified opinion — they’re just as incompetent as politicians in the real world. So why not stage a coup and replace them with someone who is effective, vivacious, and smart? Someone like… you?

Sleepy is starting the revolution in Guild Wars 2 by taking to the throne: “My Sylvari Engineer has ruled Kryta with a firm but just hand for many years. Here she is waving to her minions.”

All hail!

“I got a great screenshot of FFXIV leaders, except… it’s not a really great screenshot but here it is anyway!” said Toy Clown. “It’s the 7th anniversary of The Rising. In the picture is the leader of Ul’dah and several of her right and left lala-hands, then the tall point is the avatar of Yoshi-P as the minstrel that appears each year on The Rising to chat and sing a song! Or verses of a song.”

Over in World of Warcraft, Lucky Jinx is making friends with the Warchief-of-the-Week.

“I’m sure she doesn’t require further introductions, and she seemed rather bothered by me and the camera, so I took a quick shot and ran away before she would get seriously irritated. I’ve seen what she does when irritated.”

Vincent said that it’s been a “strange week,” and from the lack of context in this FFXIV, I can only imagine what shenanigans led to this moment. I’m gonna say… a failed bank heist, a kidnapping of opportunity, and a flight to an alternate dimension.

Hurbster’s been switching between MMOs as of late, but it seems like World of Warcraft served as a good landing spot. Here we’re at the good ol’ town of Redridge, where you might just encounter the legend known as Ghost Sabre and Queue, his winged serpent.

Wake up! Get up! Get moving, you slackers, and post some screenshots already! This week’s optional challenge is to show off one of your favorite weapons or weapon skins for us to ooh, ahh, and snort over!

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!
