How and when did you started taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

Well my start was as simple and easy as hitting screenshot button and take one. As a sprout exploring the basics of game and being fascinated by different views of game I would simply run around and capture moments that interest me. Figuring out that G-pose exist only after some time in Stormblood. There I would start to work my way around to find how the tool works and since that I take more interest in screenshots.

 

Explain us your favourite glamour set:

Well I usually just create one and wear it until it gets old and then switch to another. There is still few that I always return to. One is my first glamour I did farm for as learning to tank, I would farm The Aery with my friend just to obtain few parts of the glamour to complete. Other one is my main glamour that I farmed days in pvp just to get my coat. Its really simple one but I still like it. And for the last one it’s for dragoon where I simply fell in love with set piece from The Swallow’s Compass.

 

Which is your greatest achievement in FFXIV? 

Well I could mention my great journey of desynthesis 10 000 fish, farming all PvP mounts I could reach or collecting weapons. Not while I do love collect achievements to parts where I’m completing every single levequest that is around. Nothing of it hold as big value as times where I got to meet my best bud, my bro. And the times we would complete ARR relic weapon together. Suffer through lands of Eureka and conquer primals together. Simple thing as going through story together and enjoying it to fullest is greatest achievement game could ever bring me and I can never replace those times.

I start taking screenshots since I began playing FFXIV (almost 5 years nw). There was no /gpose at the begning, how sad was it! I played also on PS3 (no joke) so… well enjoy the quality of the screenshot.

 

Explain us your favourite glamour set:

Kinda hard to explain why except “I love them” but for the SCH I find this suit her well, she looks like a teacher. For the WHM, it’s simple, because she is an angel and a princess ! and about the AST, it doesnt look like AST but I simply love Quinterell Dress. And all dye in Pink :smile: but well, tbh, 3 glams isnt enough, there are more I really enjoy so much!

 

Which is your greatest achievement in FFXIV? 

I think it is Ultima Weapon Ultimate  :smile:

How and when did you started taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

I started taking pictures about 2 years ago. It started with a twitter daily screenshot challenge, and I haven’t stopped taking screenshots since!

 

Explain us your favourite glamour set:

I have a lot of favorite glamours, but this is my most recent one that many people seemed to like as well. I love glasses, and how classy yet somewhat sexy this glamour is.

 

Which is your greatest achievement in FFXIV? 

My first achievement in FFXIV is winning the Cactpot! I was so surprised and happy! I wear the title and ring proudly. My second achievement isn’t necessarily directly in the game, but I did win 1st place in the very first ‘Best of Snaps’ contest. This screenshot shall forever be very special to me!

Tools used for screenshots: GShade, PhotoScapeX

 

How and when did you started taking pictures in FFXIV? Show us your oldest picture and your most recent one!

I always loved to take screenshots, and I always loved to share them. So please enjoy my oldest FFXIV screenshot, taken back in 2014, which I uploaded in an form back then. At this time, there were no gpose and I hid my UI to make a clean picture. I wanted my WoW guild to see what characters in FFXIV can look like. I like to think my pictures have improved since 2014.

 

Explain us your favourite glamour set:

It’s hard for me to choose a favourite glamour, because I created so many of them in all these year. This one is very new, I just came up with it in the beginning of July for my Dancer. I love how the pants stress out her legs. And the transparent front of the body piece makes it kind of sexy and mature. Last thing I love about this glamour is the length of the sleeves, which hide a small red part at the body piece.

 

Which is your greatest achievement in FFXIV? 

I was surprised myself when I started to have fun doing PvP. I started because I wanted to get access to all this beautiful glamour Items, but then I thought, getting the Garo mounts would be nice to. And it was really hard to get them, I lost over and over again. But finally I got all three of them and especially Raigo looks really cool to me! Now I’m working on my last titles before the event is over. Only five are left by now. Woohoo!
