What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
My first and probably only character in Eorzea will be Knox the small Lalafell Archer ^^ Starting in Limsa Lominsa, I want to make him a plainsfolk Lalafell who stands out from the rest of his race by focusing on a profession that many others will simply overlook in favor of the mage classes stereotyped to it. The main reason I've chosen Limsa Lominsa as a starting city is due to the style in which the city has been presented. I'm definitely going to give Knox pirate dress wear and make him an individual in-game instead of just another number.
I've spent years trying to find a MMO experience equal to that of XI, and after constant disappointment believe I've found a game that will introduce me back into the adventures and amazing qualities a decent MMORPG possesses. In two months I start at College, so now would be a perfect time for me to try XIV and fully appreciate and attempt to understand the games mechanics, flaws and most appealing features. If I get into the beta I wont let the character go to waste, and you'd provide me with an invaluable opportunity to insure I'm investing both my money and time wisely. That and I just cant wait to test out my little Lalafell and all the customizations and armory options ^^! I do miss my Taru after all :D!
