MMO screenshots: night sky

EQ2 The moons over the Commonlands, Drinal and Luclin. Luclin is quite interesting and I love the sparkly trail of devastation (it exploded). Lotro Lotro has to have the most beautiful cloud and sky system in an MMO.  It is utterly gorgeous, most of my screenshots are of Middle Earth’s skies…  The shot above is…

MMO screenshots: frozen

I’m going to do a series of themed screenshot posts and I decided to set them in my favourite MMO worlds. There have been five MMOs that have really grabbed me and still haven’t let go, even if I’m not currently playing them.  I’m sure there could be others but these MMOs tend to be…

ESO vs GW2

HBA, my GGG and blogging mate, has just written a post detailing his views on various aspects of these two games, and I  thought it would be fun to do the same.  It serves no purpose and will just add to the general noise and mostly just prove that old saying about opinions are like…

#GW2 Kudzu

I’ve been wanting this bow ever since I first saw it.  It really reminded me of Eagle’s Talon (my Mythical raid quested bow from EQ2) and I just had to have it.  I ended up going the long crafting route, by crafting the pre-cursor (and obtaining my own little garden I can harvest everyday!) and…

7th blogoversary / 2015 recap / 10 yr MMOversary

as promised…  and possibly worst. title. ever. So, this year I played: Dragon Age Inquisition plus DLCs; started playing Guild Wars 2 with the GGG guild; played Elder Scrolls Online and Skyrim (again).  I still really enjoy all these games, even though the DA obsession has mostly passed (for now) and I’m not playing ESO…

#GW2 Longbow/Staff Druid build

I thought I’d share the build I’m currently using for my Druid.  As I have played a pure dps Ranger/Hunter for most of my 10 year MMO history, I’ve recently been more interested in playing a support role, especially after having switched to Loremaster in Lotro.  I can’t quite give up the pew pew pew…

#IntPiPoMo (36-40) death

well I guess it wouldn’t be an RPG if you didn’t face death, well face death then cheat it by rezzing or being rezzed… 36. EQ2.  Death by raiding. An early shot from some horrible raid zone – I think it was the open dungeon with attached raid instances/fights in the Sinking Sands…  spectacular raid…

#IntPiPoMo (31-35) armour

I seem to have developed a look… 31. My ranger in EQ2. 32. My hunter in Lotro 33. My thief in Skyrim   34.  My nightblade in ESO 35. and my fairy ranger in GW2.  I’m not sure why she has such a different look, I do love it though!  

#IntPiPoMo (21-25) elven architecture

I do like how there is a common, accepted standard for fantasy races across the RPG worlds that I’ve played.  Wood elves tend to have a more organic, grown for purpose feel, while high elves tend to use organic shapes in a stylised form.  Anyway, here are some examples 🙂 21. Ca’ial Breal, Vanguard.  Wood…
