The other day we asked which game you'd like to give a graphics overhaul to
, and among the many answers we got was Asheron's Call
, the subject of today's One Shots
. While admittedly it doesn't have nearly the visual details of it's brethren, Dungeons & Dragons Online
and Lord of the Rings Online
, this bit of living Turbine
history still has quite a bit of style. Here's regular Massively commenter Bam! to set up today's One Shots scene:
This Asheron's Call shot was taken in the Darkened Halls, which is a normally very low level dungeon. It has a quest that introduces us to one of the most disturbing creatures in Asheron's Call, the Hollow Minion. Originally created because one of the nemesis races in Lore thought scarecrows were the coolest thing ever, the funny particles about their hands indicate that all the damage they do ignores magical protections both on items and natural armor. Fortunately for me my character has a very good dodge skill!
If you're playing a game we don't see here often - or perhaps have never seen here - we definitely want to hear from you. There are tons of great MMOs out there that don't get nearly enough love, but we need you to send your screens in for them. Just email them to oneshots AT massively DOT com
along with your name, the name of the game, and a description. Yours could very well be the next one we feature!
