Playing FFXI for the first time, a player could start in either Sandoria, Bastok or windurst. Now these locations are mandatory for which race you choose.


Huh? As far as I can remember, nation and race were independant choices. It shouldn't be any different in FFXIV either.

In XI, you could pick whichever city you wanted, regardless of race. The only plus to picking a compatible race was the nation ring.

its just for discussion of players who start with friends, but choose different races. The races end up in different cities. Just asking if anyone has had this problem in the past.

I know about the changing nations.. I don't know if anything has change since I quit 5 years ago. Although I mean When you start the game in the first day. With your friends. Like I did in FFXI when the PS2 version was released.

No, not changing nations. We're talking about the first day too.

You can pick whatever city you want, regardless of race. It's been that way since the game launched, as far as I can remember.

But anyway, since XIV is likely to be the same, I don't think there will be considerable difficulties, except for the fact that my friends will likely want to start in different cities than I do.

You know, now that I think about it...

Getting a special starter ring for picking a city in which your character is the racial majority is, well, kind of..

RACIST!!

(I totally took advantage of it, though.. being a San d'Orian Elvaan.)

Seriously, though, I would hope that we'll all get the equivalent to a starter city ring no matter what. They're pretty useful up to level 14.

If I recall you could buy the ring with conquest points or something regardless of your race. I remember throwing mine out a lot and buying it back when I leveled new jobs.

But I was a Bastokan Hume, so maybe it was just that.

its mostly about starting the game for the first time. I mean certain starter items can be replaced at a later level, but for a low level starter.. it does give a minor advantage to new players.

They've already said there will be no benefits to choosing a particular starting nation so that players should just pick whichever one they want.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
