Show us your best screenshot so far and tell us the story behind it:

I had this idea for a Hrothgar character inspired by Umaro from FFVI who is basically a purple-skinned yeti. So I used a fantasia and experimented with glamour. As the yeti theme inspired me, I went to the snowy western highlands in search of an interesting location to take pictures. I found an old frozen aetheryte out there with subtle blue lights and frosty-looking plants. It looked fantastic at night.

I main dragoon but also play samurai and red mage.



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

The La Noscean areas have the best sunny light and shadows. I also enjoy doing studio shots with furniture lamps.

Show us your best screenshot so far and tell us the story behind it:

When I first arrived to Eorzea with my boyfriend, I was just thinking about spending our time together. We prefered a peaceful life. We were just greeting and chatting (absolutely with emote only, I’m not quite keen on Japanese) with passers by, leveling our characters and taking some nice screenshots together, finding new place and new location to take a wonderful screenshots as our souvenir from Eorzea, nothing else.

We have come so far from our beginning, thanks to our wonderful static party. For around two months we’ve worked together through E1S – E4S, everyone doing their best to support each other until we could beat Titan on E4S in the end.

This is the story behind this picture. I think the Savage raid is just the beginning for my journey, we are planning to move on TEA within next week and I know that we can do it!!

Dancer: My main job, which is not quite outstanding in this patch. I am still happy and enjoy to play this. You can see the fluffy wolf tail of Warg Jacket of Aiming which I keep grinding from Grand Cosmos, the new MSQ dungeon of this patch. It goes very well with attractive YoTHA Type-51 Trousers of Aiming and No.2 Type B Boots from The Copied Factory alliance raid. It makes my character feel more agile when she move and dance(*giggle*)!! I think this is the best glamour combination in the 5.1 for me, special thanks to Yoshi-P and Yoko Taro.



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

The Churning Mists : My recently discovered location. If you’re interested into take some screenshots at this map, I’d suggested you to come at night. With clear sky weather, it will be covered with the sea of twinkle stars along the edge of horizon.


Sepheara Haiwindo
3rd winner


Race: Au’ra – Raen
Server: Primal – Ultros
Social media: @Sepheara on Twitter
Tools used for screenshots: Gpose/Gshade



Show us your best screenshot so far and tell us the story behind it:

I think this has been the only raid in a long while I ran so much to get one large piece of galmour. The Neir Chest. I ran this dungeon over 50 times just to get that. I did get the healing pieces of course but goodness. It was a lot to keep doing. It paid off in the end, because I was able to take a look around to find a spot to screen shot, and I got this. This has been one of my best so far, I feel.

My main class of course is one, Whm. Gun Breaker and Dancer have been pretty enjoyable but as always I still love blackmage!



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

Still an old time favorite is the hanging barbs, but Most of the worlds have lovely places to take shots in, it’s so hard to choose just one!
