One Shots: Dearly beloved

    
30

If you gotta get married in an MMORPG and don’t want to spare any expense, Final Fantasy XIV has the most luxurious and extravagant setting for you. The flowers alone will set you back six years’ wages, but it’ll be worth it when your dearly beloved dies of pollen overdose.

“So I got married in-game,” said Vincent. “Purely a business transaction, I wanted the glam and mount. I’m working on the HW Machinist relic weapon because I’m not overly fond of the new relic weapon design. I look good in a tux.”

“Few mobs scare me in MMOs,” said Minimalistway. “When I played The Secret World, this monster reminded me of old folk story in my country. People say in a certain valley you can see hands coming out of the ground — but only at night and they throw rocks at people. This was a scary idea for five-year-old me.”

Lethia once again brought us the scifi/fantasy world of Allods Online: “You can see here our fleet, League and Empire united against a common enemy, the Architects. We were sent on a certain Allod to investigate what we can about the ‘Gates II’ project. After a long adventure through a lab-gone-wrong we found an Object that turned out to be a gate towards another planet full of unfriendly critters. Fast-forward after that adventure was over, the Architects, shapers of time and space, invaded another Allod and I was sent there to help how I can — and as you can see, I have the whole space cavalry with me.”

Hey kids, Santa is dead! Murderhobo kill him. It’s official.

“Long story short: Murderhobo killed SantaGacha (he was coming right for us!) and nearly ruined the ARK holiday stream,” the hero of the hour explained.

Well, Sleepy, you win. Our entire staff here at Massively OP had an impromptu debate over which game Sleepy Contemplating a Dead Walrus is from. The consensus was Elder Scrolls Online. Are we right? (Eds.: Chris and Bree want this to become a weekly game – to make Justin guess the MMO!)

All right kiddos, I’ve done my part — now it’s time for you to do yours! Slather our comments with your best or most interesting MMO screenshots along with a story or two from them! Context, after all, matters.

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!

Sigh.

This is my favorite pair of of deinonychus. I still don’t have good names for them though. The female is keeping an eye out for trouble, but the male has definitely noticed the camera.

I don’t think Utakata plays Warframe, so I decided a while ago that one of my Warframes should represent the Pink Pigtails for her. This is Hildryn relaxing at the beach during the off season. (The Grineer tourists are so pushy.)

Also, Necramechs make terrible lifeguards. “You should not swim immediately after eating! Get out of the water! You have fifteen seconds to comply!”

thank you for the feature <3
This week i'm about to spend all the time i can in LOTRO because i got a lot of story to experience and i gotta catch up. But no matter where i may roam, the beautiful autumnal landscape of The Trollshaws remains my favorite. Bonus another forest, a creepy one this time, but just as charming; Mirkwood

Thanks for the spotlight this week, much appreciated!

Gearing up to release our next digital FC magazine so all sorts of shenanigans are going on lately (which may or may not include another bottle of fantasia?)

:)

This week I set myself the goal of creating a Sylvari that looked tough. They don’t make it easy, on account of the whole being-a-plant thing, clothes made of petals and worshipping their mother, but I think I managed it.

Wow, I didn’t think it possible.

Personally, I leaned heavily into the ‘made entirely of plant material and may or may not feed you to Mordremoth one day’ for mine and was pleased.

Easier than you think, there’s a bark face that makes them look pretty bad ass, with hair that looks like a cross between thorns and Pine Cones, threw you a like though.

Welcome ladies, gentlemen, and non-binary persons to Name That Game!

That’s right, it’s the exciting battle for the title of Champion of the internet comments section where the prizes are pointless, the contests even more so and the winner is the shame of their family!

(some of these should be pretty easy)

I’ve always secretly suspected some of your ‘screenshots’ were actually photos from some exclusive Berlin nightclub. Pic no. 3 does not disappoint!

Reader
Bruno Brito

Defiance, ???, Neverwinter, Trove?, Dragonfable? Or AQWorlds?

Reader
Sleepy

I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I recognised Defiance because of the NPC’s ass. It was just..um..particularly well modeled.

Reader
Bruno Brito

That NPC was known for being a femme-fatalle, so welp.

Spring has arrived, and so it was time for my Ishgardian princess to expand her wardrobe a bit. An FC-mate gifted me the spring dress, and the rest fell right into place afterwards. Her outfit was not just the talk of the free company, but of one of her MSQ runs as well! Now to get the quite conservative Nanette over her next hump: Summer wear.

Bonus pictures are the reason for said MSQ run, and the reason why she’s not riding said reason all that often. She’s a bard, not a cheerleader!

Is that lil guy just an NPC or can you get him as a pet or cosmetic thing?

Reader

While there might be a like pet of Choofa out there, I’m afraid this was a one off quest event…where your toon carries this NPC in question to safety on their head from a group of marauding wildcats in Ardenweald. Sorry. :(
