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

I will play a Hyur Conjurer and will start in Ul'dah. I have seen Limsa Lominsa in all the videos and will probably want a bit of fresh scenery to explore after all the exposure. Also, Ul'dah seems like the bustling environment that is always one of the centers of marketplace prosperity in game.

So many choices to make but here ya go

Starting city - Gridania
1st char - male Hyur

Reasons for the choice is reflecting back on my FFXI account. Never liked Bastok or Windy region with all the mtns/rocks and the port... so went with Sandy in FFXI - (Reason to choose Gridania is being i love nature and used to live in the country where it was so peaceful and beautiful)
Was a male hume in FFXI so that it was balanced in its stats.... i toyed around with the other races but none really got me excited about them. With SE saying there isnt gonna be any real stat difference from races this time around.... im basis my char on the looks of the ones released. Cant picture myself as playing what looks like a small child or a freakish large Roegadyn. I liked the Mithra model better in ffxi compared to the Miqo'te model in FFXIV and never liked the looks of the Elvan/Elezen so its gonna me a male Hyur for me for my 1st char into the new world

I'm going to be a Highland Hyur Conjurer. I'll be starting in Ul'dah, mostly for the change of pace because I've seen too much of Limsa. I'll likely go to Gridania often because of its guilds, but I feel as if Ul'dah will have the most interesting atmosphere, to me.

And as for the race, I'm looking forward both to having a darker skin tone, and I got a bit sick of being a Taru in XI. So again, a nice change of pace.

I shall be a Roegadyn and start in Limsa Lominsa. The reason being is I was a galka in FFXI and LL reminds me of Bastok, my favorite city from FFXI. i will start off as a Pugilist because I have always loved Hand-to-hand combat the way its meant to be, Hand-to-Hand

My first character will be a Hyur Conjurer, who also strongly focuses on alchemy. Situated in Gridania. I chose this combination because a magic caster is very appealing to me lately, controlling elements and guiding spirits is pretty cool :D I chose gridania because out of all terrain types, I enjoy the more 'natural' enviroments the most. Dense areas of tree and vegetation, and whatever creepy cralwied they may have hiding in them. Also, it doesnt hurt that the Conjurers guild is in that city too!

My first character will be a Miqo'te and I'll start in Ul'Dah. It seems to be a prime spot for mining because it's described to be mineral-rich. Hopefully it also has the crafting guilds that I'd like to do.

the Character i will make is a Midland Hyru and my class would be Pugist or Lancer, the nation i will start in is Limsa Lominsa.

the reason why is because i've chosen Hyru is because i like to make the characters based off myself, and i chose pugist and lancer because they look so cool and like such strong classes but i might change my mind when i play, and i chose Limsa lominsa as my nation because it reminds me as Sandoria which was always my nation in FFXI :)

please please ZAM extend a beta key to me :( i've been waiting so long and all my friends have gotten in but me, they're always on vent rubbing it in my face ><

I'll start as :
Hyur Midland, Gladiator, Gridania.

Why:

I like the sword and shield and heavy armor sets and protecting others with it. Gridania looks like a calm relaxing place with lush green scenery and rivers nearby, I know I'll love it there.

I will be a wildwood Elezen Archer to start the game off and I will hail from Limsa Lominsa. It reminds me slightly of the noble San d'Oria from FFXI, my favorite nation and storyline in the starting kingdoms, and Ive always enjoyed ranged classes to boot.

My first character will be a male Duskwight Elezen since I'm still attached to my Dark Knight Elvaan from FFXI. Probably Marauder first until I can make my own patchwork Dark Knight or SE decides to unleash the hound of ****.

Gridania would be my choice for starting city since it seems to be the most visually pleasing of the three. However, I feel like I might have to choose Limsa-Lominsa if I want to level blacksmithing and be able to fix my own weapon.

Hyur Galdiator from Gridania, possibly Mi'qote. There's nothing cooler than a dude with a big sword and a big shield. Gridania because it looks similar to Windurst, and lets face it, Windurst was the best.

I chose Hyur to remake my old FFXI character's looks and gladiator because I love tanking.
Gridania seems like it will be forest-like, which is my favourite environment type :D

Oh, I will go with Lalafell and start in Limsa Lominsa. Seems like an interesting combination, and the race has a nice stylistic design, and a giant sea port is just intriguing!

My first character will be a Highlander Marauder, from Gridania. I like the great ax as a weapon and the area of effect attacks Marauder gets looks really cool. Gridania looks cool because its built into the woods and looks like the place I'd like to hang out at most.

I plan on playing a midland hyur. I also plan on starting in Gridania because, it seems like a peaceful place to be and reminds me of windurst and ronafure mixed together.

My starting city will be Gridania, as this is the city that I feel is the most similar to Windhurst and I have always been loyal to Windhurst ;)

My first character is going to be a Midlander Hyur Lancer. I'll be starting in Gridania.

I'm a fan of the older Dragoon characters of the franchise (Ricard, Kain), so Lancer seemed like a good choice this time around, since I didn't play Dragoon in XI. And, from what I read on the official XIV website, Gridania just seemed like the most appealing city-state to me. That's subject to change, of course.

My first character in FFXIV will be a male Hyur midlander. You may think it is a little vanilla but I enjoy playing as the "human" race as I also played as Hume in FFXI. I plan to be a Gladiator as a dedicated tank because you can never have to many tanks. I plan to start in Ul'dah because it apparently has combat arena's and gambling rings, the best place to be in Eorzea!.

I will be a Midland Hyur in Limsa Lominsa. The city looks incredible. I will be a Lancer because I think they're roll is unique. The semi-close quarter combat sounds like fun to tease your opponent with.

My first character will be a Roegadyn Lancer starting in Limsa Lominsa. Reasons being that I liked playing my Galkan character in FFXI and I've always liked the open waters that Limsa is built upon. As for the class, Lancer kind of appealed to me being a melee-ish class with some range.

A Hyur Conjurer. Probably Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
Because I was a Hume RDM in FFXI for years and I want to recreate as close as I can to my original character. Limsa Lominsa because we get a boat on the flag ofcourse, and it will go well with my pirate class. (hopefully one day)
#1082 Aug 04 2010 at 2:22 PM Rating: Decent
Miqo'te and definitely starting in Ul'dah. Cause the city sounds amazing just from the description. Also the arena; That makes the city a win already.

I might try out archer or lancer first. Undecided since I want to see which fits my playstyle.

I will be a Lalafell Lancer starting in Ul'dah.

Ul'dah appeals to me because of it's role as an epicenter for trade and commerce. As for my race, mainly because I was a taru in XI and continue to love them; and as for my class, the role of a lancer appeals to me - especially if I could look as cool as the Lalafell Lancer on the website.

I will probably play as a Plainsfolk Lalafell. After years of playing as a Taru in FFXI I have become used to a lower line of sight; the world feels bigger that way, too. As to why a Plainsfolk as opposed to Dunesfolk, I guess I just find their cat-like eyes adorable; the eyes also make them look alert and intelligent.

My starting nation will definitely be Gridania. It reminds me dearly of Windurst, still my favorite nation after all these years. I find Gridania's sylvan atmosphere very relaxing, a perfect retreat after a long day of work. I also like Gridania's emphasis on harmony with nature, which resonates strongly with my personal belief.

Elezen because I was one in FFXI for 6-7 years and I don't think I would feel the same without carrying on the tradition into a new world, and I would be starting in the forest that holds the nation that is Gridania where I can take in the awesome forest area.

Answers as below :-
Race : Miqote
Class : Conjurer
Starting city : Gridania
Reason : It's where the conjurers are I believe... and these choices are very much similar when playing FFXI, and I loved it a lot, so I'm going to start back with similar settings...

My first character will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell because in FFXI I was Hume and this time around I want to switch it up a bit. Plus I love the look of the 'new' Tarutarus.^_^
I will definitely start in Ul'dah because I love the desert theme it has and it's a very nice change from San d'Oria in FFXI. Plus it would fit the "Dunesfolk" clan of my Lalafell.=D

Miqo'te: Because they are fantastic looking, and I am a cat person.
Keepers of the Moon: Because my cat is pitch black and she's beautiful.
Gladiator: Because I prefer the flexibility and responsibility of a tanking role.
Limsa Lominsa: Because I like the architecture, and sea ports are known for their international (interacial) flavor, danger, and opportunity.

I will be playing as a Gridanian Miqo'te first off, as well as trying out Ul'dah and a Hyur Gladiator sometime sooner rather than later. I enjoy the animations a lot more but some from FFXI have put me off of keeping the same race and class combinations this time around.

Lallafel

Which is the starting city of your choice? (Gridania, Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah)

Gridania, because the woodland areas look the most peaceful. Most reminiscent of Windhurst.

My first character is going to be a Midlander Hyur living in Ul'dah
I chose these because when I first started FFXI (Which was also my first MMO), I played a Hume living in Bastok.
I felt like this combination best fits that of my FFXI character.

I'm a bit of an altoholic (despite always having a well-off main) so giving one character full access to all the classes (given enough time, effort and dedication) has me rethinking a few things and excited at the reality of full-on dedication to one single toon.

I'm fairly certain that I'll enter Gridania as a Miqo'te Gladiator. Why, Gridania? Because it looks like a very promising exploration zone and we don't yet have much information about it. Why a Miqo'te Gladiator? Well, because I love the character model above the rest and because I'm a sucker for sword and board.

Thanks,

My First Character in Eorzea will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell Pugilist starting in Ul' Dah.

The reason why ill choose this set up is because i just love the idea of play a short character that everyone sees as being all cute, but can dish out some heavy dmg and solo Mobs 4x's his size. and ill start in Ul'Dah because i have a feeling this will be the most active city. :-)
