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

A Male Hyur Marauder or Conjurer; Limsa Lominsa...

Why?

That is what I am most interested in playing and that nation state seems the best for an adventurer...lore wise...

Invisitr0n ~ FFXI Elvaan BLM, BST, BLU, SAM



1) I will choose Elezen as my race and be a Gladiator to start.

2) I will choose Limsa Lominsa as my starting city, it seems to be the San'Doria of FFIV and I really enjoyed
life in sandy. It seems to be a pirate type city this time though, but it seems interesting.

My first character will be a dunesfolk lalafell conjurer

I will start in Gridania because I want my character to be the mage that travelled from the desert to live in the mysterious magic forest :D. Also the conjurer's guild is in Gridania so this will be a solid place to set up camp.

Race: Hyur - I like their style, and well, there is no male Miquo'te, so.. ;D
Class: Lancer-Gladiator - I like to use polearms on every game, and I like to tank, so... I just hope I don't lose much without the shield!

Starting City: Gridania - I like the city type and their emblem

My first character will be a Midland Hyur Gladiatior, because I want to be right in the action. And I'll probably start in Limsa-Lominsa because I love the scenery!

I'll probably be playing a Conjurer in FFXIV - or whatever other class is best as a molding ground for a healer. If they eventually end up releasing another class that fit the role better (Say, one with mainly healing spells and very few damaging spells), I'll play that one.

As for the where; My race will likely be a Miqo'te, as the name I've picked feel to fit one best. And as Gridania feel to be the best choice of hometown for one, that will be my choice.

My first character will be a Male Elezen Archer, I believe range classes are some of the best to play and due to popular lore elves are great with bows!

I want to start in Ul'Dah as it seems more like a trading ground kind of area where people come together to talk and showcase items and sell. Being in an area you could trade in would mean easier access to equipment, etc. :)

My first character will be a Lalafell Pugilist because beating up things with your hands when you're 3 feet tall sounds very gratifying, and I'll be starting in Ul'dah because it appears to be a much more exciting version of Bastok (of which I was a devoted citizen in XI).

I'ts gonna be a Miqo'te because i like their animations and i used to be a mithra in 11. Gonna start as a Gladiator and im still undecided on which clan.

I'll be a Midland Hyur Conjurer, because in my opinion it's the closest race/class to what I was on FFXI (Hume BLM).

My nation will be Limsa Lominsa cause I enjoy the landscape of the city.

My first character is going to be completly random as is my city state...

Why? Because I really need to see what my options are. In XI I picked a Hume because it was the jack of all trades, and I started in Windhurst because it looked the coolest to me, that and I wanted to be a giant among midgets ^.^

XIV is going to be really hard for me, with every one starting at the same time I may just pick something other than Hyur. I just don't know what. I'd have to have at least 30 minutes with the Character Creator first before I decided. The starting areas really don't concern me all that much, assuming like XI we can get the majority of all stories from every nation.

Well my one and only character in Eorzea will be a Miqo'te from Limsa Lominsa: The pirate state. I would like to start as a Thief. The one job I never really played in FFXI. I am looking forward to the stories and adventure, and I think starting on the ocean would bring for some nice visuals.

I'm going pick Miqo'te this time (was Hume for FF11), but I'm not sure the class choice (most likely a mage or a melee class, no more healing).

As for starting city: I would pick Limsa since it's a port city, which can be easy enough to get around places & fishing as well.

Miqo'te Pugilist Gridania..
Miqo'te for the reason "Upskirt shots" woot.

Pugilist cause i love the way the feel is more like a Boxer <Stick and move> from what I have seen.


Gridania cause i love forest style areas wish i had started in windurst in FFXI.

My first character will be a Highland Hyur Gladiator or Marauder and city will be Lim Lominsa.

Why?

Well, my character in FF XI was a hume pld so being a hyur gladiator would make me feel like home and give that feeling of ``deja vu``to it. Or marauder to try something new since it look like it will be more oriented around attacking and doing melee damage.City, i choose Lim Lominsa because its a port city build around the sea ,which should give a nice pirates look and feeling to it.

My first Char will be a Hyur Lancer, and I am going to start in Limsa Lominsa. Im going to be a hyur because Im just partial to the human looking people in games, but the lancer because I played dragoon in 11 and I just really love the Polearms. I'm going to start in Limsa Lominsa because it looks SWEET, and the most different out of the three cities, the other two remind me of Windy and Bastok :P

I intend to beging my journey as a Pugilist, and will switch to Gladiator if I decide that isn't for me.

I played as a hume and a mithra in ffxi, so in the interest of switching things up I will be starting out as Elezen. Though if I have a second character I'm definately going to have a Miquo'te.

I'm starting in Ul'dah. I feel that not many people want to start in the desert. My first experience in ffxi was Bastok and I really want to relive that experience.

Thank you for considering me for Beta!

Class : Gladiator

Race : Lalafell

Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

Why? Because in FFXI, I had a taru with all melee classes I thought was just so fun to play. I don't see why this one would be any different. As for starting city, to me it captures the big city feeling like Whitegate or Jeuno and I love that.

I will be a male Hyuran Highlander hailing from Gridania. I plan on starting as an Archer, with skills in fishing. My friend and I hope to start a food store of sorts. I will start in Gridania because I like the tranquil appeal it has, and I plan to fish in the rivers. The forest always has a bit of mystery that intrigues me.

Can't wait for FFXIV!

My first character will be a Midland Hyur, with a starting class of Gladiator. My nation-state will be Limsa Lominsa.


Why?

Midland Hyur because I love the emotes that I have seen, and the images we've seen from E3 showed me animations that I know I'll prefer.

Gladiator because the sword and shield has been my preferred method of play since FFXI.

Limsa Lominsa because the idea of being near the ocean in my starting town is just too awesome to pass up!

Wheee, let's see... My first character will be a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te. I just love the lore and the feel of the Keepers of the Moon. They have a sort of mysterious quality that resonates with me.

For my job I think I'll be a pugilist. It's a job that just screams fun and it seems like it can easily transition between solo and group. Black Mage was my only job to 75 in FFXI so I'm ready to try a class that's more physically oriented.

As for nation... I've fallen in love with Gridania. The images I've seen of it are simply stunning and I simply cannot wait to explore it.

I am sooo excited about this game, I can't wait to get started and see where it takes us.

My first character will be a Midland Hyur Conjurer starring in Limsa Lomisa, backup as a Miner when friends are not online.

After reading articles on Conjurer mechanics and the fact that I always prefer a caster in near human form, I've decided a hyur Conjurer is my favorite for now. The first concept art for Limsa Lomisa amazed me few months back, thus the choice.

My first character will be a Lalafell conjurer, starting in Gridania. I've been eager to play a tarutaru-type character, but could never get into it in FFXI due to how poorly many gear sets looked on them. As for conjurer, what can I say, I like to blow things up and it feels like the closest thing to a Black Mage this time around - although I will likely mix in some Thaumaturge skills regardless. Gridania is my choice of city-state due to the lore behind it; the addition of the seedseers gives it a Windurst vibe, and (going back to my interest in FF magic), the storylines there were much more to my liking than those of Bastok and San d'Oria.

Female Hyur in Gridania. Because I like to make characters that look like me, and Gridania looks like the prettiest. I'll probably start as thaumaturge, but one of the things I love about the FF MMO series is the ability to experiment with lots of different jobs.

I am ready to start as a Lallafel Botanist, starting in Gridania.

Why?
Gridania seems to be the most Windurst-esque, which was my favorite place in FFXI. I plan to go in with the Renkei Dorkz, my old guildmates from FFXI, and we'll be newbies all over again, lol. And I LIKE being /punted, silly as it may be!

My first character in Eorzea will be a Miqo'te because I like the emotions and movements set for them over the other races. I'm planning on trying most every explorer class but will probably wind up settling on Conjurer for its utility and support abilities. I will be starting in the nation-state of Gridania, as its harmony with nature most lines up with how I plan on playing my character.

What will your first character in Eorzea be?

My first character in FFXIV will be a Thaumaturge. In FFXI, I played a tank which was really fun, but I want to try fighting from the other end of the spectrum. I will also be a Hyur as they look to be an interesting and balanced race.

What nation-state will you start in? Why?

For the starting nation-state, I would like to start my journey in Limsa Lominsa... the landscape looks awesome and I just got back from Hawaii, so I'm loving anything with a beach setting :)

I would love to be a part of the beta!

Thanks in advance!

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!

Geez, this is fast!

Anyway, I'm definatly gonna be a Hyur, as I played a Hume last time around. I'm going to focus on DPS first, tanking 2nd. So Marauder and Gladiator will be important to me. I'll likely take up Blacksmith as a trade class. Going to likely live in Limsa Lomisa, Just going by the available guilds, and the fact I'd rather not live in a forest or a desert surrounding.

But If I get to play the beta, that may help me finalize my decision! :)

1. I will create a Hyur Midlander to replicate my Hume from 11 and because if stats are again race specific, the Hyurs will be in the middle, giving me a chance at playing each class without having to load up on enhancements just to compete with better suited races( ex. Taru PALADIN )

2. I would start out in Limsa Lominsa because of its background of Corsairs and the Roegadyn. Its like a cross between Aht Urghan and Bastok from 11, my two favorite cities.

I will play a Lalafell, Conjurer, Gridania.

Like this setup because it has a close resemblance to my Windustrian Taru Black Mage in Final Fantasy 11. Reason I choose this setup is due to Conjurer being close to a black mage, Lalafell to a Tarutaru, and Gridanaia looking somewhat like Windurst. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the beta key giveaway.
