I'll have my one and only character as a Lancer because I always liked polearms and I relished out-damaging my husband's DRK as DRG on FFXI years ago. I'll be starting in Gridania with him as well on his GLD because the forests will be more interesting to wander through than the coastlines I think!

I plan to start a Lalafell Conjurer of the Gridania nation-state because I love playing healers and the Lalafell are so cute!

Starting in Gridania seems like the best bet for me because the nation looks very mystical.

I will be playing a Miqo'te Pugilist loyal to the Limsa Lominsa nation. I picked this most because when I played FFXI I was a mithra MNK and loved every minute of it. I can't wait to introdue my fists to the monsters of Eorzea.

My first character class will be either a Hyur or Lalafell, have not decided the race but I know I will start out as Goldsmith to start making money early on and get crafted equipment to all of the adventurers starting DOM or DOW classes. I have chosen Ul'dah as my starting city only because I believe the goldsmith guild is located there. This is only speculation but if the guild is somewhere else then I will start at that city.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Lalafell! I loved tarus from XI and Lalafell seem very similar!

I will start in Gridania because it's reminiscent of Windurst from XI. I also plan to start in Gridania because I love nature-like scenery!

Race: Hyuran
Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

Why: Was a Hume in FFXI and I'd like to equate Lima Lominsa to the Bastok of FFXIV which is where I started with my Hume in FFXI. And Galka are awesome people so I'll be hanging around them.

I think I will try a miner Lalafell along with my girlfriend who is probably going to play a bothanist :) We will both start in Limsa Lominsa!

Why?

Because we have great expectations of the crafting/gathering concept of FFXIV and we think it will involve less grinding and a more casual/peaceful game experience!

Thanks for reading!

My first character will be a Roegadyn Gladiator from Gridania.


Why?
I intend to be a tank this time around, so starting with the Gladiator skill set seems like the logical choice. I'll be going with Gridania since it looks like the most interesting zone of the three...and I've already seen far too much of Limsa Lominsa.

Sen will be Lalafell. He's become accustomed to the smaller physical form and typically quicker minds of such small races. Though his tribe will be from the dunes, he's always been attracted to heavily wooded areas. For this reason he is deciding to call Gridania his home. This is also a very practical decision, as the seat of the conjurer's guild is located in Gridania, and if there is one thing about Sen that never changes... it's his absolute passion for the ancient mystic arts. He intends to study hard the arts of Conjurer primarily, though Thaumaturge intrigues him more than a little as well. For now, Sen waits patiently, biding his time until he is summoned home, or until he is able to open the portal home on his own.

I plan on being a Wildwood Elezen based in Gridania. I grew to enjoy this race a lot in my previous state, and I prefer the more natural area of the forest to the city. It just seems to be a good place to be an archer and an aspiring wielder of magic.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Midlander Hyur Female and the class will be a Conjurer. This is because I always love the human like classes and love the motion of the characters. I want to play as a Conjurer because I love magic and all of the animations for all of the spells and love playing an important mage role in the party.

My starting city will have to be Gridania. This is because I loved Windurst where it seemed to be the magic type city and Gridania is fairly similar to that aspect. I want to start in a forest type area where there is magic thriving all around and a good place that is relevant to the character's starting job!

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.

First Character: Wildwood Elezen
First Class: Lancer
Starting Area: Gridania

Why:

Traditionally I have always taken hand-to-hand combat classes in RPGs and it was true of Final Fantasy XI: my main class was Monk, and I like to be in the middle of the action. On the other side of the coin, my other main class was RDM, which I enjoyed very much from a party-buffing standpoint. Lancer offers party-buffing abilities in addition to participation in front-line battle. Also, it provides a chance for me to get out of my H2H rut and follow a different weapon discipline.

My starting area would be Gridania simply because as a lancer, it appears that is where the guild will be and naturally it would be beneficial to start in an area where lancers abound.

Highland Hyur Pugilist, Ul'dah city state.

I like the desert setting of Ul'dah and want to start out with the "monk" style job this time around. As far as highland hyur, I just like the way they look.

Going to play as a Wildwood Elezen from Gridania. I played Elvaan in FFXI and have always liked the elf look. I'm starting in Gridania because I really dig forest settings.

Its kind of interesting how Gridania reminds people of both Windurst and Sandoria.

-What will your first character in Eorzea be:

Miqo'te Thaumaturge/Weaver - I played a Mithra in FFXI, and love what they've done with them in XIV. The Thaumaturge also seems like an interesting caster class, and should be fun :)

Gridania! I think it looks like the most interesting locale of the 3, and I'm partial to forest zones :P

My first character will be an Elezen Archer starting in Limsa Lominsa. I played FFXI for many years and always used the Elvaan race with the ranger class always being the most enjoyable job for me. I will start in Lima Lominsa as I love the idea of a city on the sea.

I'm planning to be a Lalafell from Gridania - in XI I was Elvaan so I'm looking to play a shorter character this time, and of the three cities I like the way Gridania looks the most. As far as disciplines goes my first choices though are Archer, Conjurer and Thaumaturge, but I'm sure I'll give the others a try at some point. I'm also gonna take up Armorer and Goldsmith to make a living.

A duskwight Elezen whos a Lancer primarily. They seem to be a cross of the typical graceful Elf mixed with something darker, and that appeals to me, and the lancer seems to be a good class with its ranged melee for mobs.

Uldah as a starting point because Uldah seems to be the gambling and sorta lawless place. >:]

My first character will be a Sea Wolf Roegadyn Marauder. I have always played the more beasty hard hitting 2 hand weapon classes. I will also be an armorer/blacksmith.

Starting in Limsa Lominsa as it has all the guilds in one spot I am looking at, and really love the look of the city.

I'm going to be a Midland Hyur as a Pugilist in the city of Gridania. This is because I love picking races close to Human. And as for the class, I figure since I'm a melee type user, and when the game comes out I will get use to it for my guild/clan. That and who doesn't love hand to hand combat? I also picked that city because it seemed like a good place to be for me and my character, and plus all my friends mostly will be going to that city. ^_^x

I will most likely be a Lalafell/Plainsfolk Lancer, I've always been a fan of polearm weapons.
Of the three cities, Gridania sounds like it would be most fitting for me.

Why?
In FFXI I lvl'd dragoon and I've enjoyed every min of it. Also I've always enjoyed playing as a TaruTaru. ^^

It will probably be a Roegadyn Gladiator probably starting in Ul'dah. Reason I choose this combination is because most MMO's have a shortage of tanks and healers and the Gladiator seemed to be the most tanky of the classes. I like the race of the Roegadyn...and along with tanking I plan on trying my hands at the mining blacksmithing areas...hence why I choose the Commerce town of Ul'dah.

I'm going to level pugilist because it is the closest thing to thief. Also I will name my character something nerdy like Ferrous Ironfish, or Ferric Irongut. I can't wait to start crafting again!!!!

I plan on playing an Elezen Conjurer from Gridania. I'm really drawn to the beauty of the Gridania area shown so far, and am excited to explore this verdant city and it's surroundings. I'm interested in playing a Conjurer as they seem to be more of a party support role, which I prefer to play. I'll be playing an Elezen because in XI I played a tarutaru, and need to be a little taller ^_^

What? -> I plan to be an Elezen Archer and would like to start in Gridania.

Why? -> Seems to be the most interesting spot to start as woods and rivers are the most interesting places in games. Archers just fit that area so nicely as well. It allows for easier roleplay.

Hello, I would really like to participate in the FFXIV beta. Here is my application.

"What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?"


Here is my answer to the quoted question:

I am considering playing a Sun Seeker Miqo'te Conjurer in the Nation-State of Limsa-Lominsa. My reasons being I played a Mithra for many years in FFXI, and during my stay in Vanadiel as a Mithra I made many friends, with whom, through team work and hard effort, conquered many foes. I also met my lovely wife, who was to be the mother of my child, in there. Thus, my character always held deep importance to me. I want to experience the joys of discovery, victory and friendship once again as I had felt in FFXI and I feel starting as a Miqo'te in FFXIV is the way to go.

Race / Why: Midland Hyur / I usually prefer to play a human like race in games
Class / Why: Gladiator / This class most closely resembles the pld of FFXI. I also like a class with a sword and shield.
Starting Nation State / Why: Ul'dah / I like the description of Ul'dah as well as the landscape that surrounds it. It also, according to the official site, has abundant mineral resources, and I plan to level miner as well so this seems like a good place to start.

Going to start as a Miqu'te Thaumaturge in Limsa Lominsa. Also going to focus a lot on Fisher in my time not grouping with friends.

Trying out the Miqu'te this time around mostly because I like they way they move and look, also excited to have two different color eyes. Thaumaturge because I am a caster to the core and a buffer/debuffer at heart and right now I think they have the right skills to get me started on that path. Limsa Lominsa because I love fishing and the fishing guild will be there.

A Plainsfolk Lalafel Conjurer from Girdania.

As for why, well I will always play a mage and that combination seemed the most "fitting" to me. Not to mention it's a pretty faithful recreation of my FFXI character.
