What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen, and he will be a Gladiator who hails from Limsa Lominsa.
I had an elvaan back in FFXI and I am trying to pretty much recreate him for FFXIV, also I enjoy tanking, so something with a shield is great for me. :)
As for why Limsa Lominsa, I just like the island aesthetic, and am looking forward to just taking a look at the scenery sometimes in the breaks between play sessions.
