So it looks like the same races pretty much... Taru, Hume, Elvaan, Galka (without tails) and Mithra.

So if you plan on, or are thinking of going to FFXIV will you stay the same race or will you change? I'm mithra now and I can't imagine being anything else so I'll stay mithra.

What about you? Gonna try a new race, or stay the same you are on FFXI?

yeah in the trailer the one making the magic bubble thing on the ship is a mithra. On the FFXIV site you see her better and in the concept art there are mithra and what we think is a taru.

I plan to change to either a female Taru or a Mithra. I'm tired of being a shemalevaan.

Elvaan male to Mithra, if the majority of SE's armor wasn't so homoerotic on male players, I'd prolly stick to Elvaan male.

As for the Taru, if you look on the site, right left of the center of the concept art there is an obvious Taru chatting it up with a Mithra. As for the demon kid to the far left, that smells of a new race entirely.

Oh, and the big mystery of the Galka, as to why their tails are gone, it is quite obvious to me they just changed places. Now they don't reincarnate anymore.

I'll probably stay Elvaan, maybe change to Hume if they stop looking like they're out of a boy band, but from the trailer it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

I think a lot of mithras would like to be manthras in FFXIV.

I might try out a different race. I've been hume F since I started, and all my mules are humes too. I would really like if the job system was a little different in this game though, and encouraged having more than one physical character rather than making it so difficult to progress that you can only realistically maintain one.

I know there are people who have been through all of CoP and etc on several characters, but for most of us.. Yea once was enough for that crap :p

This is essentially the reason I chose Elvaan male. Nothing screams homoeroticism like a lanky man in a cop subligar, dream boots, egg helm, and a gaudy harness. Nothing.

I would definitely get a manthra character to go with my taru and galka. I wouldn't play a mithra though, maybe only as a mule.

Male Mithra is a Dream me and many others have had for a long time, and have been suggesting/begging for, and sending suggestions in to SE for the longest of time about. You guys have no idea just how much this means to some of us.

Yes, yes I will be a Male Mithra, and I will be the proudest one alive.

Well if we get male Mithras.... It would only be fair to get female Galkas...

But I don't know how many of us would *really* want that.......

errr...

I wouldn't be against it but it's kind of nice having that balance of a a largely patriarchal society countered by a largely matriarchal society, and the other races in between.

Just incase anyone was wondering, in the Bastok Storyline, you learn that Galka's are more or less a "Divine Race" which don't really have males or females, but they are classified as males. Mithra do in fact have male and females and reproduce just as any other race does. You also learn in the WOTG quests from Lehko that Male Mithra are perfectly common on their homeland, it's just the "renegade" female Mithra came to the lands that we know of.

I'm probably going to stay with my Elvaan character, just because I'm so used to seeing it in-game. It'd feel too weird seeing something else on screen.

Most likely I'd change my race. I'm a hume atm and I regret it because I'm already a human irl, boring. I feel like I'm not taking advantage of 'being' something totally different. Face models will probably be a factor to what race I'm choosing.
#28 Jun 02 2009 at 3:45 PM Rating: Decent
I don't know, I'd have to know more about the game. I probably will change races for variety, but i really hope they add a few more than the FFXI ones.

As much as I love my Elvaan (M) I'm likely going to switch to Hume (M) in FFXIV unless a new race of interest pops up. I made my character when I was sixteen back in 2004. I must say I've outgrown my fetish for long pointy ears since then.

Hume again if there's not something new that interests me.

I will stay what ever form of Elf they have in the game.

And my first job will be whatever form of Monk they have.

That has been my MO since the days of Pen and Paper.

I'm hoping Eorzea is a land where races of Vana'diel and Ivalice live together, got the Humes, Elvaans, Tarutaru, Galka, Mithra, then we'd have Gria, Aegyl, Viera, Moogle, Nu-Mou, Seeq, Bangaa, and Revs, maybe some Garifs. Probably not that many, but most MMO's have more than 5 races to be able to choose from, I'd like more races than the 5 from FFXI.

That would be really nice! I do hope SE adds atleats one or two more races that are playable. Guess we will see soon, 2010 isn't too far away! =D

If I were choosing this moment I'd go right back to Elvaan and right back to Monk (if it's a choice). But I've got loads of time to change my mind.

My wife WILL be Taru again... She won't even consider any other option. :)
#38 Jun 02 2009 at 5:35 PM Rating: Good
If I make the jump to FFXIV and find that Tarutaru are available as player characters, then I shall take up the Taru mantle once again.

...unless there is an even more saccharine-coated sickeningly cute magically-attuned race, in which case, I will choose that.
If Squenix announces playable Moogles or Pixies, I may as well kiss the last of my masculinity goodbye.

My first thought when I saw the horned fellow in the concept art was Gria. Here's to hoping.

Kuluu.


Or Manthra, if they make that an option.

I just gotta say, I'm STOKED that they are keeping the same races, its like a nod to all the development over the last 7 years, while still making something new and fresh.

I might try Elvaan if they don't look like monkeys. I wanted to be one when I started FFXI, but I didn't like the way my character looked so I switched to Hume.
I might change depending on new race lore. I love the proud Elvaans of San d'Oria, but if the races are very different in XIV I might like something else better.

On the big colored image from what I can tell, the mithra leaning on their hand is a male. The shoulder is marge larger and the jaw/face much more masculine and stronger then the one on the far right.

It's also possible the far left one is also male, but that's debatable. Either way they look awesome.
