One Shots: Might as well be staring at the sun

    
22

Not surprisingly, there are hordes of Massively OP readers crawling over every square inch of the recently launched New World, often with their cameras in tow. Imagine super old-timey cameras or lithographs or something like that, if it helps with your immersion.

R00ch kicks us off with this picture of his character going blind from gazing upon the majesty of either a sunset or nuclear blast: “This view stopped me in my tracks. Almost made me forget about the eldritch corruption infesting Aeternum.”

RimaHadley is getting into the spirit of the dark holidays: “As it’s Halloween Month, it seemed appropriate to dress my Final Fantasy XIV character up as a werewolf, complete with a moonlit photoshoot and her lunar hound, Fenrir.”

Speaking of Halloween, Zulika Mi-Nam found a perfect place for an October 31st shindig in New World. It’s most likely, probably, definitely not haunted. No sirree. No ghosts here, just us slavering ghouls and eldritch horrors.

And over in Dungeons and Dragons Online, Minimalistway is winning the REAL game of any MMO, which is (of course) fashion. “I started with rags, and now this Paladin looks respectful, so it’s time to go kill some rats!”

“Last night in New World was my first night,” Fisty recounted. “The company I was in claimed the first Marauder piece of land on the server. Now all three had equal holdings. We raised 50k in 20 minutes once all of the green faction combined their money and were able to claim and defend for the next hour or so. Was mad fun seeing hundreds attack/defend the fort.”

After you’re done napping like a cat in a sunbeam, stretch out those screenshot-jabbing fingers and get to work hunting down the best and most interesting views from your MMOs!

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!

Sneaking this one in here.

Darn thought I cropped the FPS and Latency info out of that.

Just some more New World shots from my adventures in Aeternum (is it weird that I feel like a mini-celebrity when Justin posts one of my pics? Maybe I spend too much time reading MOP). My character does seem to like staring at the sun. I tried to get him to look away and add some spooky Halloween shots this time.

I love taking screenshots so I really hope they add some photo-mode type features down the road – this game would be perfect for it.

How did you get that shot where you were looking behind into the camera?

So for those I’ll use the /sit emote while facing opposite of where I want to frame the picture (or at an angle). Once my character is locked into place with an emote (/ahoy works too if you have that one) I can just swing the camera back to the angle I want to capture (I hope that makes sense). If my character isn’t facing quite the right way I’ll just keep having them /sit at different angles till I get the shot I want.

Mounts aren’t particularly my thing, as long as they bring you from A to B. Also not a fan of certain “excessive” mounts. But this… this… The Namazu Mikoshi from FF14 it’s just short of crazy funny that I could not resist it.
Here in Gyr Abania, with the Omega “hole” in reality in the background and the impressive tower of Castellum Velodyna (why can’t we land on top there, why?)

Looking towards Bree from Wildwood’s Sutwarden, ruins that have been there since the game launched, but became reachable only with the Wildwood patch. One place my character was glad to finally visit.

Not much but then I haven’t gamed too much lately, and New World hasn’t been too stable for me server wise.

Tweaked my graphics, I think it’s the lighting and water that’s tanking my FPS.

I’ve been working on getting some spooky and/or seasonally appropriate screenshots. This is the latest batch with a “is she a vampire hunter, or a vampire?” kind of theme.

Amusingly enough, it was the hat in this shot that led to the rest of the outfit being created, and then I decided not to use it for the interior shots (I did, however, wait 30 minutes in real time for the time of day to shift to get this one).

I love this photo shoot so much! The lighting, the angles, the glamours – all amazing.

Get us off to a start with a shining tribute to excess. The Origin 400i, then play with stuffed penguins and paint jobs.

And more of the Lower Deckers of the USS P4ssw0rd.

Might be a spoiler or two in here.

Love these shots! When I first started FFXIV, I didn’t quite understand what was up with these little potato people. Now I love lalafells and can’t imagine the game without them. Mimodi, Papashan, Fufalupa, Tataru, and Wedge (to name a few) add so much to the game and I love them.

I also love the lalafells at the thaumaturge’s guild in Uldah. All those little lalafells in their hoods and robes cackling while they practice casting spells – gets me every time.

Yesterday was The Great Gnomeregan Run, i really love just running from Tinkertown to Booty Bay, this year my goal is to be the Warchief of the Horde, even for just a second, and i did that.

I thought of keeping the gnome in Orgrimmar and try to make him live there, but he will just die as soon as he claim his dead body and leave a skeleton behind, oh i wish there is a way to change faction or at least make the Horde guards not kill me.
