First and foremost, I would like to thank you for the opportunity as like a lot of people, the patience and the heartache of refreshing your inbox every 5 min for several months is painful.
As for me, I would go for creating Three characters;
What & Where ?
1st) Ill make a Highlander
a) Focusing on strength and vitality to be a viable damage absorbing class, I will
start off as a Pugilist, mixing and matching with Marauder and Gladiator.
b) I'll most likely start this charecter out on Limsa Lominsa
2nd) Character would be a Dunes folk Lalafel
a) Focusing this little fella out on Magic, Piety and Mind for maxing out my
casting abilities, as you could guess, ill start this guy out as a conjurer
with a little Thaumaturge.
b) This fella will definatly be a resident of Gridania, something about the forest
makes magic casters feel like they are at home.
3rd) my last Character for this game would either be a Mi'qote or an Elezen (most likely Elezen)
a) This one ill focus on being a meele damage dealing class, again will start out
as a Pugilist, mix with marauder and maybe a little archery.
b) you can guess where this one is going to be born, Ul'dah nuff said.
The reason im going a 3 way split in this game is that i'd like to take my time in it, im in no hurry to get to the end, I want to immerse in it, get the epic fantasy feel of the game, just like how it felt back in FFXI.
I'm doing three characters to fill in every position without compensation, ya i could just switch weapons on the fly, and reallocate points, but no ! i want to dedicate, each character for a specific field, i want to tank, in one of them, cast in the other, and punch the living daylights with the last one.
Thats my long term plan for now.
Best regards folks !
