What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
My first character will be a Hyur because I just like the look of Hyur.
And I will choose to start in Gridania because I like the lore and environment of it.

My first character in FFXIV will be a Lalafell Lancer, starting in Limsa Lominsa.

As to why, I had a taru DK, and I really enjoy the idea of a tiny person with a huge lance poking things. =)

What will your first character in Eorzea be?
My first character in Eorzea will be a male Hyur and my class will be a Lancer.

What nation-state will you start in?
I will begin in the nation-state of Gridania.

And why?
I plan to begin as a Hyur because I have always loved the Hume from FFXI. I want to continue living by the polearm as I did in FFXI, and this time I plan to choose a similar nation to Sandoria (aesthetically speaking) - Gridania.

First Character-
Hyur Highlander Gladiator/Thaumaturge hybrid from Gridania.

Why-
I like the viking appearance and I realy want to make RDM the way I thought it should have been in XI. as a true melee with some magical powers. And Gridania because I just really like the concept art. Although I may switch to Ul'dah when I see actual pics.

Oh, and double bonus, the cut off date is my birthday. hahaha.

I will create a Lalafell Pugilist because I'm hoping for another magnificent adventure like I experienced with my Tarutaru Monk. I'll start in the seaport city of Lisma Lominsa because it would make sense to me that this would be a fishing port and I can't wait to equip a rod and some bait and do some serious fishing in the new land.

definitely going to play a hyur this time around. thinking of starting in ul'dah because of it's lively atmosphere.
playing a pugilist for starters, still undecided on a trade. carpenter or perhaps leatherworker.

I'm planning on creating a Mi'qote Pugilist within the starting area of Gridania.
I prefer playing fisticuff/martial artist type characters whenever the option is presented to me.
Mi'qote are cat girls; I also elected to play as Mithra MNK in Final Fantasy XI, so the choice was obvious.

The concept of Gridania itself being a "dense woodland" filled with "course rivers" interest me far more than the descriptions for the other two starting cities.

My first character will be a Lalafell Marauder/Archer from Gridania. I had a hard time deciding what raice I wanted to play but the Lalas are just too darn cute to pass up. Marauders don't seem to be very popular but they are simply deadly and who doesn't want to kick some *** with a big-ol' axe? I like the look of Archer, with feathered hats and big bows, it is just adorable on a Lala. Gridania is the natural choice for me, it's beautiful, distinct, full of mystery and the possibility for a lot of interesting stories and characters.

My first character will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te Archer from Ul'dah. I plan to take up mining and I like the desert atmosphere, so Ul'dah definitely serves me well. Plus, goldsmithing should be easier with all those deposits of minerals, yeah?

My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen gladiator. The elezen race I find appealing and I'd like to level a tank class. Gridania would be my starting city of choice because I like the look of the city and in FFXI my character was from Windurst.

I plan to play as a Highland Hyur or a Plainsfolk Lalafell Thaumaturge and hope to start in either Ul'dah or Gridania. I love the look of Limsa Lominsa, however, I'm intrigued by Gridania and Ul'dah. I love the brief glimpses we've gotten of them both! I'm hoping to get into beta to offer feedback to SE to ensure XIV is a success!

My first character will be an Archer in Limsa Lominsa. When starting MMOs, I have always been fond of cities that appear vast, bright and full of life. This isn't the say the other city states aren't like this, but there is something inviting and refreshing about being in a city surrounded by the open sea. The clear blue skies really drew me in, more so than the lush greenery of Gridania or the sands of Ul'Dah.

I'm choosing to be an Archer because it will be a big change from FFXI. I wanted to try something new, and as of late I've grown fond of the idea of the bow and arrow type fighter. It also seems like a good job to start with as a means to explore the world of Hydaelyn if it behaves similarly to how Ranger did in FFXI. Only time will tell.

Elezen male
Duskwight
Grindania

I chose Grindania, because its location will have a significant bonus to my crafting and further benefit my starting jobs. I plan on playing as a Lancer first then to a lesser extent Archer, both I'm sure will benefit from weaving and leathercrafting, as well as cooking if there is a cooking guild in Grindania.

Miquo'te THF type for sure! Bringing in abilities from different classes to get that THF type. (not looking forward to lvling lancer) Why? Well I love me some THF. As for nation-state, it doesn't matter. If I have to choose I'd pick Ul'Dah, nice desert and interesting town with an arena and such.

Thank you Zam and good luck everyone,

Going to play a Miqo'te Keeper of the Moon Pugilist. As for nation-state,Gridania will be the starting nation-state for
me. I like how it's located on the map and the actual concept of the place.
Hoping to be able to give good feedback about the game and a chance to explore the game before the release!
Also I want to see how well my pc can run the game.

I'll start as a Lalafell Conjurer in Gridania. Choosing the race/class to contrast my FFXI hume and elvaan tank jobs, and also because support mages were always in higher demand in XI, hoping XIV will be the same. Picking Gridania because it looks like it'll be the prettiest.

I'm going to start off as an Elezen Thaumaturge.

Honestly, I'm not yet sure where I will start off, as I haven't seen enough official information on all of the starting areas. I usually decide with the in-game text, so obviously I'd need to be in the game to make that decision (hint, hint) ;)

My character will be a Roegadyn thaumaturge who will be a citizen of Gridania! In FFXI I played a Galka WHM (and BLM) who was a Windurst citizen. I hope to recreate a similar character who is big and beefy and friendly, who likes to provide support to other players with his spells, and calls an unlikely place home.

I like the nature aspect of Gridania -- not a big fan of the huge cities. I always enjoyed the elf-type races from FFXI and would like to try one this time as a caster / enfeebler.

My first character will be a Hyur Gladiator, I love the design of Hyur and I have always loved playing a sword and board class, as well as tanking.

Nation will be Gridania, in XI I played in Bastok so I wanted to go with something very different looking, and the beautiful forest around Gridania is a prime choice for that.

My first and only character will be a Lalafell. No question. At the moment, I am leaning toward Gridania since it will probably be a magic hub. However, aesthetics will play a roll in my decision so I'll have a more concrete answer when we have seen the nation-states.

Thank you for this great opportunity!

I plan to play a male Elezen, and my starting nation will be Ul'dah.

I love the way the Elezens look, and I'm a junky for buying peoples goods, so a commercial city is the perfect spot for me.

My first character in FFXIV will be a Miqo'te Conjurer and my starting nation will be Limsa Lominsa.
Why? Because the scenery is beautiful and who doesn't want to live in a city on/by the sea. Plus for some reason it reminds me of Jeuno from FFXI and that brings back a lot of fond memories.

Greetings all,

Already have purchased the special edition and feeling my excitement of watching/reading all the posts regarding ff14 have me more than eager to play, as well as seeing counting down each day for that release date. For me to earn the right to play in beta 3 to confirm how much i would love to enjoy playing my:

Female Midlander Hyur who will study the arts of Conjury beginning my adventures from my hometown Ul'dah. Battling through the desert heats and high noon suns yearning to explore the horizons is what i would call adventure.

Let the adventures begins!

Race: Sea Wolf Roegadyn

Class: Conjurer

Starting City: Well the one my friends start in. A few of us from FFXI plan to start our n00b days together in one city for old times sake.

Why?: I always enjoyed my Galka White Mage in FFXI so I figured why not? Plus the tank and damage dealing roles were already filled haha.

My first character will be a Miqo'te conjurer or ranger since I played a Mithra in FF XI and think they are cute! It's really hard to decide class when you haven't had a chance to play the game. And for my starting nation it will probably be Gridania because it reminds me so much of Windurst (Home to Mithra & TaruTaru). "Sarutabaruta" music anyone?!?

I am going to play a Female Midlander Hyur Alchemist / Conjurer in Gridania (or maybe Ul'dah, if that's where the Alchemist guild is).

I'm choosing Hyur because they have the best hair styles by far. Why Alchemy? Well, I want to be primarily a crafter this time; I'm a graduate student and only have a limited amount of time to play, but it seems like logging on to get some crafting done will be productive. Plus I can make some monies so I can occasionally go out as a Conjurer and smack some enemies in style. Of course, Guildleves are seeming very attractive to me, so maybe I won't be so primarily a crafter? Of the crafters, I picked Alchemy because... that robe the alchemist wears on the official site is so awesome.

I'm choosing Gridania because of the woodlands and rivers. I always loved the green setting of Windhurst. Also, it has Leatherworking there which I would love to start off with.

As for Race I'm thinking Lalafell, I was a galka on FFXI and want to be smaller. Also the mage job looks kind of cool.

I'm going to start as a female Lalafell Archer (possibly dunesfolk) because I played FFXI for 7 years as a female taru and it's what feels comfortable to me. I will start in Ul'Dah because I love the desert and middle-eastern ambiance. Can't wait!

I Will be a Hyur in Limsa Lominsa. I played FF 11 and I remember the human race being more balanced skill wise and I love how hyurs look in gear. I picked Limsa Lominsa because I'm a huge fan of the flag and it looks like San Doria from ff 11, I'm excited to explore it. I plan on playing a conjurer, mainly for cure/healing spells.

Highland Hyur and would like to start in Gridania.

Race: Miqo'te - Lancer

Nation: Gridania

Why: The reason I am choosing Miqo'te for my first character is because just before I quit FFXI I had rerolled a Mithra with the intention of being a Thf main and Windurst was my nation;oh and woodlands are a must! I am hoping I can secure the name I want come retail and get to finish something I started a long long time ago so here's to hoping I can relive the past and make that Mithra reborn!

My first character will be a midland hyur. The only real reason I'd go the hyur route is just because I enjoy playing humans in MMOs, and I plan on sticking to that in FFXIV.

As far as nation-states go, I will start in Ul'dah, primarily because I plan on playing a gladiator, and going by the description, it seems like it fits the gladiator motif pretty well. That, and so far I've only seen things from Limsa Lominsa, and I'd really like to see a different part of Eorzea.

1) Miqo'te (Although I'm undecided between Keeper of the Sun/Moon and will be until I get the chance to futz around at the character creation screen some.)
2) Lancer
3) Gridania

Why?

1) I like bein' a cat girl.
2) I went with Red Mage over Dragoon in FFXI, so now I've decided to do the Lancer thing in FFXIV!
3) I'm a sucker for the foresty lookin' places.
