What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
After over five years as an Elvaan, I'm looking for something new. Something fresh and different for a game that is fresh and different. Roegadyn and Lallafel are not my stule, but an agile Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) looks like it would be perfect to begin my career.
I'm still in the air between Lancer and Pugilist; my loves in XI were MNK and DRG and I could never pick one so I will most likely be leveling both.
As for city, almost certainly Gridania. Limsa Lominsa's island setting is nice, but everyone in the beta is in Limsa. Uldah looks nice as well, but Gridania's forest surroundings remind me a lot of my days growing up in Ronfaure, with a touch of the nature element, akin to Windurst (Which, to the chagrin of my glorious San d'Oria, Windurst had the best nation missions. I'm sorry; it just did.)
So Miqo'te Keeper of the Moon in Gridania. Either a Pugilist/Lancer or a Lancer/Pugilist.
