What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
I'll be creating a Roegadyn Conjurer and starting in Gridania.

Why?
Ever since my first character in Everquest I've liked playing as a bigger race with magic casting abilities. I like the Shaman vibe it gives off and want to be able to heal and buff/debuff. Gridania just looks and sounds like the most beautiful starting area and I'd love to start off in that setting.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te Pugilist. She will be residing from the state of Ul'dah.

Why?

Mayu, as she'll be named, being a Seeker of the Sun, enjoys basking in the warm glow of the vast desert and drinking in the rays of the balmy days that Ul'dah provides her. Although the comforting weather may be her most deciding factor for taking up residence in Ul'dah, the many opportunities to gamble excitement into her life at the halls, as well as register herself in the fighting arenas keeps the boredom at bay; riling thrill where the wilderness may no longer keep her interest.

I'll definitely be playing a Lalafell as I really enjoyed my Taru in 11. I just like being so small but potent!

My Lalafell will be a citizen of Gridania as he or she (I haven't decided yet!!) will be more inclined toward a natural existence and I think the storyline from there will be much more personally immersive to me.

I am going to be a Dunesfolk Lalafell in FFXIV because I always regretted not choosing one of those cute Tarutarus for my FFXI character. Although I have to admit, I am a bit torn... the Wildwood Elezens seem pretty great too!

I definitely plan on starting in Gridania. Gridania looks absolutely amazing, and it reminds me a bit of Windhurst. The forest setting will help me feel at home in FFXIV and bring back great memories of FFXI!

My character will be Kobaltic. My race will be Elezen.
My starting city will be Ul'dah. I love a trading city with hustle and bustle. I hope it turns out to be a mini Jeuno. There is nothing quiet like a city with hundreds of people around.

This time round, I'm going to be an Elezen Archer.

I remember the cut scene at the beginning of Final Fantasy XI and the awesome looking Elvaan with the bow, and ever since I wanted my character to be him! But as you know, there was no Archer! So now, finally my time has come, I can be the Robin Hood of Eorzea...although I most definately wont be giving to the poor..unless of course, that gets me into the Beta..!

I'll probably be starting in Gridania as I've seen Limsa Lominsa from photos etc so I'd like a whole new experience! Plus, I'm an elf, and elf's don't belong in cities...as Will Ferrell proved...

I plan to play a Bard, my class of choice in FFXI, assuming it is in the final release. If Bard is not available, i'll start off getting the hang of the game with a melee class, before shifting to a caster, trying to nestle myself into the support/healer role, but in any event I plan to try every class I can. Race is either a Miqo'Te or a Midland Hyur, and of the three starting locations, Gridania sounds interesting.

For me, the Beta provides a chance at two important things. First, the chance to see everything before the contents, mechanics, and every other point of interest within the game gets spread across the internet, before you can just go to a website to have a walkthrough on each quest, monster, and zone. It's a chance to discover, pioneer, and learn. Figuring out through toil and trial what works, and what doesn't. Spending time, gil, and effort into discovering the ins and outs of a crafting system, before 'quick and easy' methods become commonplace. Second, the Beta provides a way to make sure everything on my end, hardware wise, is enough. I'd rather loose a day or two during a Beta test, tweaking hardware and parts, and get problems in my system nailed down then, while the game is receiving the same treatment, then picking up the game at launch and finding those problems then. For me, the Beta is those two parts: the desire to pioneer, and see something fresh, in it's infancy, and to make sure i'm equipped when the real deal starts.

I will be starting either a Midland Hyur or a Wildwood Elezen. I'll be playing as a Lancer no matter what. As for town, I'll be hailing from Ul'dah.

As for why, Ul'dah seems to have a resemblance to Bastok, the city my character was from in Final Fantasy XI. For race, I've always enjoyed being either a human (Hyur) or elf (Elezen), though I'm not sure if I'll choose male or female yet.

A Miqo'te lancer will be my first character. I was a mithra back in FFXI and I enjoy the character models, quirks and animations a lot, I'll be going lancer because the class looks very tactical and interesting. Much moreso then just standing around hitting a button.

I am going to be a Miqo’te for sure. I've always loved cats, so I'd love to play one!

I'd probably start in Limsa, I think the idea of a cat living on the ocean would be funny :P

First Character:
Lalafell - Plainsfolk Gladiator/Pugilist

Starting City"
Ul'dah

Why?:
The panic dance of the Lalafell is hilariously funny.
Plus a group of little lalafell's bashing or tanking a huge monster = epic!
Ul'dah sounds more like a mercenary thieving community, I would
like to be a part of underground movement or rebellion fighting
against the 6 corrupted rich dukes to save our king.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Midland Hyur. Probably a fighter to start off with and then develop some magic skill as I go. I really like their appearance. It fits in well with my role playing style.

I'll probably start off in Gridania. I really like the look and feel of the country side around there. At some point I'll migrate to Limsa Lominsa. I also like the look and feel of that port city.

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

I intent on playing a Miqote, more specifically a Seeker of the Moon. The skin and hair colors of that sect/caste are of more appeal to me, without question. Initially, I intend on beginning as a lancer..! I've always been thematically fond of polearms, and I feel that the class will offer a fair bit of strategy that I'll enjoy toying around with (though this seems to hold true with most classes, in truth).

Gridania is my intended place to begin, solely due to the more natural environment about the place. This was my reason for prefering Windhurst in FFXI, and thus it carries through to FFXIV!

My Character will be a Miqo'te Thaumaturge as it's the closest to what I'm used to playing in FFXI (I plan to even make her look as close to my 11 character as possible!)

I will start in Gridania because it seems the closest to a Windurst-like area. I have to have trees!

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

My first character will be a Hyur Midlander and I will probably go with Pugilist first or maybe Lancer. Ul'dah will probably be my starting city.

Why?

I've chosen Ul'Dah because it sounds very interesting, bustling, and vivid.. Unique within the world of Eorzea. I imagine it to be something like the Las Vegas of Eorzea. People will travel from far and wide to see its bright lights and get a taste of its entertainment. I also tend to fancy desert or beach environments such as the Valkurm Dunes in FF11 or Lut Gholein (Act 2) in Diablo 2.

I find it easiest to identify and play as a Hyur as they look like humans. They also will likely have more balanced and universal base stats which will work well if playing the various classes which I plan to do in the long run. I personally find that most of the armor looks proportionally right on a typical human model. Class wise I'm going with Pugilist because when I eventually came around to playing Monk in Final Fantasy 11, I grew to love it and is still my main job. It has a very satisfying feel, sense of speed, and sound to its animations and attacks, which Pugilist appears to retain in the videos I've watched of FF14. Or possibly Lancer because the animations with a pole-arm look good and realistic and much improved over FF11's.

My first character will be either a female Midlander Hume or Mithra Archer. I am not decided as to which nation I will start in. I chose to make this character because it is the type of character I played in FFXI and I like archer type characters from movies and games.

Hyur - Midlander - Archer

Why?
Well most every MMO and RPG I've played I would always play a mage class. FFXI was no different. Kind of made it a point to try something different this time around, and as for starting off in Ul'Dah, it just looks like it will have an amazing look and feel. I also plan to rub elbows with the Syndicate while there.

My first character will be the same as it was in FFXI, a mithra. I miss my tail way to much... lol.. Spent so long playing FFXI and got so involved in it, even my RL had alot involved in it. I'd say I would probably start in Gridania, simply because it gives me like an old windurst, which was amazing always. I cant wait to see all the new things they've involved into the game this time. So, hears hoping !

Male Hyur Conjurer to start, but also going to dabble in all magic classes, and some gathering/crafting as well. In fact, all the classes look like fun to play so I'll probably try them all a bit, but I am definitely going to favor the (unfortunately few) magic classes.
Will most likely start in Ul'dah because I like the forest setting.

A highlander Marauder, and will be starting in Gridania.

Why?

Well the wife loves playing a healing/ranged character, so I figure one of us needs to get up close and personal.

As far as starting in Gridania, well it's a pretty big split between that and LL, but we like the whole forest thing, and she can't help but play a dang wood elf in every freaking game.

My first character will be a Highland Hyru and will start him off in Gridania which may seem like a uncommon combination.

Although not as educated as the Midland Hyru my Highland Hyru character seems more matured and experienced in old school way of living.
Tired but strong my Highland Hyru will seek the natural magical ways in Gridania.
While very prepared and willing to battle, he also will learn that besides fighting by steel, one could be loved by the energy of nature.
An uncommon stranger will find him home in Gridania.

When i get to play im going to use the Miqo'te race keeper of the moon clan and my starting city would have to be Limsa Lominsa It looks to be an amazing starting area next to the sea. I love the ocean and my girlfriend cant wait to play it also as a Miqo'te only the opposite side as a sun seeker. We cant wait to begin the challenge to see if the moon or the sun is better. :D

My first character will be a male Elezen, and would start in Gridania. I chose an Elezen because it has more ties to being fantasy like than say, being a Hyur. I chose Gridania because of the lush, dense wooded nature really has a sense of belonging. The combination together has me eager to start the journey on my travels!

Character: Miqo'te (Seeker of the Sun), Conjurer/Thaumaturge with Mining and Blacksmithing (should be interesting to make guns)

Starting State: Ul'Dah, I would have to say a larger city would provide more quests and also sights to see. Also I don't like the idea of starting on an island such as Limsa Lominsa since I don't know if you can leave at anytime or if you have to do quests first. Gridania looks like a perfect place to start since it is in the middle of the map almost, however the nature theme makes me think of Windurst and I did not enjoy going there.

Roegadyn 'cause I'm probably gonna be playing the "Big Daddy" role - all my friends seem pretty intent on making Miqo'te and I'd like to stand out just a little bit. :P
If I had to specifically choose an area - probably go with Gridania. I really like trees.

My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen Archer, and I will more than likely be from Ul'Dah, The reason is I played FFXI for many years and was a Ranger in that game, so I want to continue and become an Archer, I always had lots of fun on it, I want to be from Ul'Dah because the city seems to have a nice story behind it even with the little information that we have now.

My first character will be a Hyur Conjurer (although one thing I am thrilled about in this game is the ease of changing classes, particularly on one character.)

I plan to start in Gridania because even in real life I like forest settings. I may change my mind though as we get more information about the lore of the cities - it sounds like Gridania makes sense for Disciples of Magic, but I don't know if it will be odd for a Hyur to begin there.

Thank you for offering this to us first off.

After being a Elf for 8 years in FFXI I plan on being a Lalafell (Dunesfolk), always wanted to be a taru as I love the emotes, character backgrounds and personalities.

I want to be in Gridania with all the water and surrounding nature it just seems comforting, cozy and fun plus they have several guilds there and I want to be a disciple of the hand and I want to be a crafter and get into fishing.

I worked hard to make ffxi a better game during those 8 years and getting in before the crowd will help me do that in FF14 as well to learn more and contribute to the beta process.

thank you,

Lance

My first character in Eorzea will be a Midland Hyur Pugilist, from Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
I first began FFXI back in the NA release until earlier this year when i had to stop for personal reasons, but I am anxious to begin again. I am going to choose Hyur because my last race was Hume so it will be the continuation of my FFXI character Karahan. I was mainly every DD class so i will continue that to start. And i have chosen Limsa Lominsa because in its own way has reminded me of my home of Sandoria. So that is how i will begin and continue my journey as Karahan.

My first character will be a Miqo'te Gladiator, probably in Ul'dah.

Why? Because it will stick to my FFXI roots as a Mithra PLD/WAR from San d'Oria. I believe Ul'dah will have the same feel to it as San d'Oria did, but my decision may change once we get to experience the other areas of the game.
