After a lot of failures, passing through tiers without any great success, I finally met a static, a bunch of great people, we had a big heart attack because we thought we would wipe at 0,01% but we managed to get down the current tier! We did it, and I am looking forward to what the game brings us next!!



Which are your favorite jobs? Show us your best glams!

My favorite jobs are Scholar and White Mage!



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

I don’t really have a favorite place to take screenshots, my house is usually my choice, because of the balance between the bookworm and the child of nature I am, but also wherever my eye catches a place, my /gpose is ready, any place can be a great opportunity for screenies.

Tools used for screenshots: I try a bit FFXIV TexTool for the fun, but my screens are mainly with only the basic /gpose.



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

The best? Just that??? (I just checked, I have more than to 11k screens, all included…) You know what? How awful was the V1.0, the way they did the transition from 1.0 to 2.0, it’s something you do not see every day in video games? I was here! Not the last battle, unfortunately…, but it remains good memories, and we had to immortalize this moment with my company (I was the miqo’te on the left side ^^). Trust me, the small ball becoming this big in the sky give his little effect!



Which are your favorite jobs? Show us your best glams!

My current job (for a long time) is Paladin. I really, really have difficulties to change is glam! I love the dark side if this armor, but one day I will have to be inspired to change it. The second one currently is, Dancer. I love her moves, her skills… and should I tell I also like her look…?



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

I really love Shirogane (where I bought my house). I like the oriental style and the different spots it offers (hidden or not). It’s really a well-done zone to spend time!


Nyx
Edited 1st winner


Race: Viera
Server: Ragnarok
Social media: @nikithenikita_ on Twitter
Tools used for screenshots:  Reshade



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

She was my first Viera, a Veena because I used a fantasia to try Viera on my main character. The truth is I hated Viera before I made my first moon bun (for the pale skin). Maybe because they have a limited number of hairstyles that are exclusive to Viera. The magic happened when my friend Crys sent me a pm saying “where’s your bunny?? try Viera, c’mon!” and a lot of tentative I made a pure white bun Viera and I discarded her with some other races. I was wrong, I learned I love Viera so much now and I’m a Rava bun and I don’t want change my bunny!



Which are your favorite jobs? Show us your best glams!

My favorite job is Machinist (my main) because I always play Caster/Ranged DPS in other MMORPG and Black Mage because is my first love in this game.



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

My favorite places are:
-Mist because I love sea zone and the mist remind me of the Mediterranean Sea
-The Sea of Clouds and Diadem because it is damn strange and absolutely cute and the beast tribe (oh my I’m really silly because there is Vanu Vanu tribe lol)
-Kugane, it reminds me of Blade and Soul, a Korean MMORPG set in oriental vibe and I played that MMORPG for 2 years before I started playing FFXIV.


Seriahime
Edited 2nd winner


Race: Au’ra
Server: Famfrit
Social media: @ErisNyrea on Twitter and @seriahime on Instagram
Tools used for screenshots: GPose and Photoshop Express



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

I love these two specifically because these are the moments where your character is not just a stoic hero but someone who is feeling the burden of what they chose to do and the pain of losing everything for everyone. This is where they are in need of the comfort and the support that will keep them going, even if it comes from the most unlikely sources.



Which are your favorite jobs? Show us your best glams!

Bard and Summoner.



What are your favorite places for screenshotting and why?

I love taking housing pics, I love to design homes in the game for players and to me, these spaces are their personalities and their individuality shining through when they are just another player in the dungeon. I feel like these places are glimpses into how they see themselves and I love to capture their uniqueness from the way their homes are designed.
