One Shots: Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got


At the end of a busy and exhausting day of clobbering kobolds and cleaning up after dragons, the need to crash at a comfy pad is overwhelming. Sometimes you need to go where everybody knows your name — even if that “everybody” is just a headless fairy named Percy who’s desperate for a cracker. Ahh, that’s the stuff.

“This week I’ve been tinkering around on my FFXIV island sanctuary, trying to make a couple spots for screenshots (an outdoor studio if you will),” Vincent said. “The island content is a god send for folks, like me, who don’t own a house in-game. Looking forward to more island stuff in patch 6.5!”

“Here’s my obligatory Baldur’s Gate 3 screenshot (ok, it’s not an MMO, but it was needed),” wrote MolleaFauss. “That’s my Duergar Thunder Cleric, a chararacter I did roll for real in pen-and-paper sessions.”

Somebody’s been snacking on colloidal silver, I see!

Transmog is a privilege, not a right. And those who abuse it for their own ends will… well, they’ll be rewarded handsomely, apparently!

Just ask Minimalistway: “In World of Warcraft’s Trial of Style, I won first prize with this outfit. The theme was Mismatched Mayhem.”

My eyes. The goggles do nothing.

Moving on, IronSalamander8 got green in a big way, saying, “I’m mid-questing in Garden Warfare 2, and was looking around for shots for today, and found one of those silly ads the game has all over in the Aqua Center map from my Torchwood’s point of view. Who doesn’t want a free tactical tortoise?”

And I’ll wrap things up here with a picture of me and a few new buddies kicking back on Palia’s docks and fishing to our good fortune while checking out a gorgeously purple sunset!

Let’s keep the fun going in the comments, where you and your schoolyard chums are invited to plunk down your own recent MMO screenshots to show us what you’ve been up to in your game!
