My first character is going to be a desert Lalafell Thaumaturge. I'm going to start in Uldah because it seems to be the "Vegas" of Erozea! Gambling baby!

I am going to start in Limsa Lominsa and will be playing an Archer, or a musketeer when/if it is released. I played a Ranger in most games and am going to continue the trend, plus Limsa Lominsa plays into the whole pirate theme I have going and it seems to embody this song:

Do what you want, ‘cause a pirate is free,
YOU ARE A PIRATE!
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be,
Do what you want ‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

I'm going to be a Roegadyn Archer/Carpenter when the full game releases I'm going to start in Gridania. According to the description on the official site Gridania is where the carpenter guild will be and that's what I'm mostly interested in becoming.

Thank you.

I'll be either a Plainsfolk Lalafell or one of the Elezen races. I'm not sure which yet! Regardless, the class I'll try out first will be conjurer and I'll be choosing Gridania as my nation-state. Why? Well, I used to always be a melee class. However, in the last year I've come to love playing caster classes (more specifically support/healing) so it looks like conjurer will be the perfect fit for me. As for choosing Gridania, the concept art for it is just so pretty I can't not choose it!

I'll be making a Lalafell Fisherman as my first character. His name will be Santiago Hemingway and he will be from Limsa Lominsa. He will spend his days plying his trade amongst the waterways of Eorzea, always seeking the greatest catch. Each time he pulls up another empty hook he will smile a little as he ponders the latest bad hand that the cruel ***** Fortune has dealt him. Yet he will carry on, oblivious to the trails and quests of his comrades, seeking the thrill and adventure that only fishing can provide. His journey will only end after the ocean has had it's fill of his salty tears and drags him down to the only peace he will ever find.

FINAL.

FANTASY.

Roegadyn Gladiator or Marauder (Sea Wolf faction), Ul'Dah. Ul'dah seems like a great place for a Disciple of War, even one from northern lands, based on its recreational activities. I don't see how I could be a glad/mar and not like arenas or gambling.

First character will probably be a hume midlander, and I may start in Gridania. Because Limsa Lominsa has been gone over in detail already and I'd like to see something totally new.

My first character in Eorzea will be of the Miqo'te. I've always been a fan of hybrid creatures, especially cat ears and cat tails. Whether a Seeker of the Sun or a Keeper of the Moon, that may be as simple as a roll of the dice. However, the Keepers of the Moon hold a special pull for me. The moon is a mysterious celestial body, and the power, the sway that it holds over the sea is a magical thing. The strength and power that the moon may provide them intrigues me.

My Miqo'te, whether a Seeker of the Sun or a Keeper of the Moon, will start in the nation-state of Gridania. The lush forests and winding rivers speak to the Miq'ote in me quite strongly. Nature surrounds the nation-state of Grindania from all sides and even within the city itself with it's labyrinthine waterways. Aside from that, the Miqo'te in me wishes to study forestry or leatherworking ... and what better place to learn about these trades than in the great nation-state of Gridania?

Race: Highlander Hyur
Class: Conjurer - Full heal spec.
Nation: Gridania

I've played all of the major niche in MMO end-game content except healing, so that's why I'm going Conjurer. Gridania has the forest like atmosphere that I enjoyed about Windurst....so Gridania will be my home.

My first character will be a female Elezen Archer :)
I will start her in Limsa Lominsa.
The reason I chose an Elezen is because I was a female Elvaan RNG in FFXI, and part of her story line was that she seemed to think she was a little cat. >_> What better place to start her than Limsa Lominsa? :)

I'm going to be a Lalafell tho I am a bit torn on the job class of Guardian, Conjurer, or Archer leaning more towards Guardian. I will have a second character eventually that will be a miner if I go Guardian or a weaver if I go Conjurer, therefore I am going to choose Ul'dah as a starting city not only for the mineral/cloth resources but for the fighting arena's and other recreational activities.

I will be a Duskwight Elezen Thaumaturge from Gridania because I played an Elvaan BLM from Windurst, and this most closely matches that. I am interested in seeing the changes in the mage classes, and how they will affect gameplay.

Character: Elezen Gladiator - I was an Elvaan DRK in XI, so it is only logical that I transition into Eorzea as a similar character.

Nation: Ul'Dah - Who wouldn't want to start off in the big city?

Character : Conjurer or Archer -- Love range classes! But range that can nuke/heal? Better!
Race : Lalafell -- aren't they the cutest ever?!
Nation-state : Limsa Lominsa -- It is beautiful! It's just sparkling!

Would love to test FFXIV before the release and help with any bugs i find. Also great way to test the game mechanics.

My first character is going to be a Plainsfolk Lalafell and she will be starting out in Gridania. In FFXI I played a Hume starting in Bastok and after years of playing wished I had chosen a Taru character from Windurst. Lalafell look so cute and I want to be a Conjurer and the Conjurers' Guild is in Gridania.

More than likely Ill play a Hyur because im a sucker for the basic. I will definitely start in Gridania because I absolutely love the surroundings of the city, being deep in a forest is just so cool, not to mention I love the architecture used for that starting area. First class will be a Conjurer because I always chose that for my first FF class. Might go for a Gladiator second.

My first character's race in Eorzea will most likely be a Duskwight Elezen, dependent on racials (if introduced). I am leaning towards Marauder for my main disciple as of now, but I could also start as a Pugilist or Archer depending on beta reviews of the classes. There will be a little dabbling in crafting to repair equipment, but I doubt that I will actually stick with crafting for long at the start of the game. I will be starting in Ul'dah because it has the gambling halls and fighting arenas, which is parallel to the atmosphere I am seeking.

I'm definitely going Miqo'te because it just feels natural, and the animations are awesome.

As a Bastokan Mithra, there is no doubt I'm going to start in Ul'dah, where commerce rules (and probably some awesome ME-inspired music).

1) What will be your first character in Eorzea?

For my first character in Eorzia, I would like to roll a Hyur (human) gladiator. I will originally roll this race because i really enjoyed the hume race in ffxi and would love to see what they have done to improve upon their emotes and lore from xi. I will choose to roll a gladiator because i enjoy tanking and dd. I would also like to create a blacksmith to craft my gladiator elite weapons and armor.


2) what nation-state will you start in? Why?

I will start in Limsa Lominsa because I enjoy the brightness and purity of the city itself. However, I would also give some thought to starting in the "crafting city" as well in order to become accustomed and surrounded to that part of the game

As lame as this is, I will be picking a Lalafell starting in Gridania because that seems to me as the closest I can get to a Tarutaru starting in Windurst, and that's how I started my character in XI

I think I will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn Marauder and will start in Ul'dah. I was a taru in ffxi but always wanted to try a galka, This is my chance. I chose Ul'dah because it looks mystic and epic and hellsguard clansmen thrive in that desert climate.

Why?

My name: To continue the legacy of Vanadise Hashiba

My Race: Because, in a world like FF which allows you to change so often, being the most versatile race always has its perks ; )

My Home: Gridania looks beautiful, a place where I would love to look around, and keep seeing everytime I make a new sword, sharpen your axe or collect some copper.

My first character in Eorzea is going to be a Midland Hyur Archer starting in Ul'dah.
At release of FFXI I played a Mithra. I recently picked up the Ulimate Collector edition off Steam and started playing a Hume in Bastok. Im hoping a Hyur in Ul'dah will give me that feel. As for archer, it was my first advanced job in FFXI and the one I played the most.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Miquo'te of the night clan. She will also be a thaumaturge as a main weapon skill and Conjurer as a second weapon skill. She will be starting in Limsa Lominsa. The reason for this is I have always enjoyed magic based classes and FF 14 will be no different. I also love the looks of the Miquo'te and am really excited about the new clans which will be in Eorzea! Limsa Lominsa is the sea side town and looks very appealing to me which is why I chose to start there.

Lalafell Botanist!!! Probably from Gridinia. What can I say- Im a sucker for plants and im excited about this new crafting system, desperate to see if an MMO finall made crafting more then a mind numbing grind. I also struggled to keep up with the gil demands in FF11 and im hoping starting with a gatherer or crafter would make that significantly easier! I think a dunesfolk Lalfell would be cool as well, desert plants are often highly adapted and very cool and the possible story of my guy traveling to Gridinia to study a more abundant supply of vegetation could work out. :)

My first character will be a Sea Wolf Roegadyn starting in Ul'dah. My first and only character in FFXI was a Galka starting in Bastok, and I want to continue his legacy in FFXIV. Ul'dah seems the closest to Bastok, so I hope to meet Cid and explore mines among other things.

Was a Mithra, and will be a Miqo'te (was planning to be a male Miqo'te, but can't play what doesn't exist!). I will be a archer that will start in the beautiful nation of Gridania.

Why? I love my cat people, and archer looks to be a truly unique class compared to the rest of them. Gridania is an easy choice, best way to enjoy these graphics is through a forest environment, and I've always been a hippy at heart :)

My first character will be a Roegadyn Culinarian (I always liked cooking in ffxi). My GF will be a Miqo'te so it will give good symmetry for me to be a Roegadyn. As for what starting area, I was always a fan of Windurst so I will be starting in Gridania. It looks and feels like Windurst from the concept art.

Race: Roegadyn, likely Sea Wolf
Why?: Honestly, the base reason is "I think they look cool, and I know they're going to be the least-played race". In my short time in FFXI I played as an Elvaan, and though I tend to enjoy a melee DPS role more than a tank role which the Elvaan fits perhaps ever-so-slightly more than a Galka, I realized more and more in playing that I wish I'd chosen the big guy as a race instead. They're imposing yet still intelligent, and probably my favorite thing to roleplay would be a "big guy with a heart of gold". I used to say if there had been male Mithra (or in this case, Miqo'te) I'd have played that in a heartbeat, but now I realize that even if that were an option I'd still choose Roegadyn.
Sea Wolves just look more comfortable to me, something I'd feel much better playing than the Hellsguard. I love the face that their skin color almost reflects a sea tone and I could almost imagine living a comfortable, if not particularly "high-class" life on one of the islands from which they hail before being thrust into my adventure.

Class: Lancer (or possibly Marauder), Culinarian, Fisherman
Why?: Well, as for my choice of Discipline of War, Lancers first and foremost have been my favorite class in Final Fantasy games, more often than not. It call began with Kain on Final Fantasy II(IV) on the SNES as a kid... he was easily my favorite character. Then seeing characters using spears and finding that Jump accessory in FFIII(VI) I loved emulating that beloved character... then you have such great lancers as Cid and Freya, and Lancer being easily one of my favorite Jobs in Final Fantasy Tactics... well, you get the picture. I actually sadly never unlocked Dragoon in FFXI but I know for a fact it would have been one of my favorite classes no matter what. However, as I said before, I really like melee DPS so Lancer isn't the only option. I'm thinking more of a "guy with huge weapons" than other melee DPS options such as Pugilist or perhaps even fencing Gladiator, so Marauder has my eye as well. I really like axes, and Berserker is another classic FF job I really like, so...
As for my choice for Discipline of the Hand, really I just love being a chef as a profession in games that allow it. EverQuest II being probably the best example, cooking food and drink may not have seemed as important as crafting weapons or armor, but then people started to realize how much more powerful and potent the handcrafted food and drink items were than what they could get from an NPC merchant, and it was very fun to be one of the few that provided such to the community. Even more fun was cooking up random little morsels I'd cooked just to train myself or for the novelty of it, and handing them out by hand to people I partied with. Even COOLER was when my friend, who played EQII as well, was a fervent fisherman and would hand me the day's catch in roleplay which I would proceed to craft into delicious morsels for us and our friends. Those are some of my favorite MMO memories, and I'd adore to hold such a position in FFXIV. In fact, I could see myself playing as a Culinarian more often than my Discipline of War, even in battle situations, if such classes can truly aid in battle as much as I'd like.
And lastly, for my Discipline of the Land; quite simply, fishing can supplement my cooking, and I love the idea of relaxing at the side of a stream and spending a lazy afternoon catching some fish and taking in the lush and beautiful sights FFXIV provides. One sight I've seen in a few MMOs and have always enjoyed was a group of friends fishing next to one another and chatting up a storm; that seems far more pleasing to me than swinging a pickaxe in a dank, lonely mine, for sure!

City-State: Gridania.
Why?: Well, to be honest, as much as I've looked everywhere online I have found very little information about most of the city-states, but Gridania has stuck out vibrantly in my mind since I saw an image of it. A lush, infinitely comfortable woodland home in which there are winding streams from which I can fish, and a thoroughly relaxing setting in which to cook and socialize? Sign me up!

So... I do hope anyone gets to see this as it's so deeply entrenched within the thread now, but if you do, I hope you enjoyed reading. If you can't tell, I'm very excited to play Final Fantasy XIV.
