I was looking at the city-states/starting areas for XIV and it got me thinking about where I'd like to start, where I started FFXI, and why.
I started in Windy when I played XI, I'd like to say that I had some great reason for doing so, but sadly I didn't. A bunch of my friends who had started the game a a couple of weeks before me had started there and didn't yet know how to get to the other starting cities in order for me to join them. So I started there to be with them. Don't get me wrong, I really did end up loving Windy, I just don't know if that would have been my choice had I done (any) research on the game before playing.
Now I'm reading any little bits I can on the new city-states and trying to make a choice, and so far.... I can't.
All that being said, I figured this would make a great topic for everyone.
Where did you start in FFXI?
Where do you plan on starting in FFXIV?
