Hey guys, long-time reader, first-time poster.
I was just watching the video again recently thinking that all those characters look to be wearing "lowbie" gear. The sort of stuff you might get fresh off the boat. I then looked closely at the HP and MP bars and it seemed as though the Roegadyn and Hyuran had the exact same HP/MP. The Lallafell was close too, though she was missing some MP, presumably had casted a spell recently. Is it safe to assume they could all have been the same "level" (most likely "level 1")?
I'm hoping this will mean there are no huge differences between the races in overall HP/MP levels. As a Galka SMN and RDM from FFXI, I know how tight MP can be. I really want to roll a Roegadyn this time around but not if I'll have the same MP penalty.
