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

I will be making a female Hyur and starting Limsa-Lominsa. I like the play of a human type character and the port town looks to be the most exotic and fun for me.

I will play as a Elezen Archer because i played many of the other races as well as this one in ffxi and i have decided that they are the best and most fun for me to play! And i always love being a archer having the ability to strike from a distance is amazing!

I will start in ul,dah because the city seems like there will be a lot to do and that it will be the most busy of the three!

My first character will be a Elezen male Lancer who comes from the land of Gridania.

Why because in FFXI I played an Elvaan male and dreamed of becoming a dragoon. Lancer weapons are huge and awesome and just want destroy little rabbits. >:D

Class: Thaumaturge
Race: Female Elezen
Starting City: Ul'dah

I would just like the opportunity to test out the controls for myself keep hearing things about them, wondering if its anything like the original game. As for the race it seems to be one of the less popular of them..

First Character: A Duskwright Elezen Archer. Good backstory to the nation and love the character look! I love ranged combat and it looks like Archer will really deliver on that.

Nation: Limsa Lominsa, I have been excited for this area since I first saw the promotional videos. I can't wait!

My first character will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell Thaumaturge. I started as a Mithra in FFXI but the Tarutaru quickly became my favorite race with their cuteness. I choose Thaumaturge because I like being a debuffer...there's something strangely satisfying about it. My starting city will probably be Gridinia, as I love the foresty look.

A Dunesfolk Lalafell Thaumaturge from Gridania bearing the scars of animosity from a previous life. Why, do you ask? Because I have no choice.

My first character will be Miqo'te, they represent me the most. I have always been very feline in manner and was a mithra for years on 11. Gridania is very beautiful from what I can tell, I would love to try it out as my first city and explore it. Also it reminds me of where I grew up, very rural and friendly place.

my first character in eorzea will be lalafell and starting city will be gridania.

i've always loved taru's in ffxi and this time around i want to be one, instead of hume like i was in xi. gridania looks really amazing in the trailer, i also like that it is the HQ for the mage guild in the storyline.

My first character is going to be a Hyur Miner, that way I can throw rocks at people.

I will probably start in Uld'ah, so I can dig holes everywhere gathering rocks to throw!

I would really like to be a Plainsfolk Lalafell, and I would prefer to be a disciplines of magic conjurer!

The reason that I would like to be this is that I was a Tarutaru in the older final fantasy and I have always loved playing one. I have always been a fan of magic in Final Fantasy games (I used to be a White Mage) and I plan on being one again :)

Back in the good ol' days, I liked healing party's when they needed it and going around and raising people who were stranded. Killing those evil banshee's and ghouls were fun to to in Dunes as well haha!

My first character in Eorzea will be Hyur with the Thaumaturge class in Limsa Lominsa. The reason being that it's the closest class,race, and nation that I had in Final Fantasy 11.

My first character will be Sea Wolf Roegadyn starting his journey in Limsa Lominsa,
Within this city-state adventurers will find 'Fisherman's Bottom' -guild of most importance to me since my first discipline will be fisher. I just don't want to pass the opportunity to fish on the boat from intro scene, especially that it seems to be free ride. I may consider starting in other places but only if they have boats.
The marine version of Roegadyn has exceptionally unhealthy skin tone which may scare away opponents fearing to catch some nasty disease, in rare cases this fear could even cause sudden death...so Sea Wolf Roegadyn is definitely my racial choice.

I have to be a Duskwight Elvaan, to continue the proud heritage of Elvaan hate of other nations from FFXI, though I'm hoping with all the sliders I can make one that doesn't look like a sad emo child.

Where? I can't resist the lure of the island city-state, surrounded by water. The pictures make it look too nice.

I plan to make a Lalafell most likely dunesfolk and have the class probably be pugilist, purely because of the mental image of such a little guy taking on huge monster with just his fists :D

My first character in Eorzea will be a clumsy but plucky girl with a dream. She'll probably start off with a broom from her mom's cottage but will eventually graduate to more substantial weapons. The exact nature of the dream is subject to change however, depending on circumstances - it's hard to be noble and full of humility when you're hungry.

She will likely belong to the nation-state of Gridania, because trees and flowers are more likely to be easily edible than dust and rocks.

My first character will be a male midland Hyur, a Lancer from the nation-state of Ul'dah. I like that the city of Ul'dah has these recreational events and would seem fun to partake in. I chose Hyur because they seem to look the most adventurous me and being a Lancer seems like the best class to first start the adventure.

A Lalafell Conjurer. It seems as close to a BLM as they come, and with backup heals! Between the DPS, Heals and Utility spells, it seems an useful class.. I liked being the sleeper/stunner. Had a Taru BLM for 4 years, they really grow on you.
As for City-State probably Limsa Lominsa. I just find seaside environments to be the most relaxing and reminiscent of where I grew up.

I'll be starting by reviving my beloved old Elvaan MNK as an Elezen Pugilist. I'll admit, I've missed FFXI since I quit, and I've been keeping track of the updates, but I'd never have the drive to pull any of it off now. FFXIV, however, will be full of new experiences for myself and the friends I'll be joining the game with.

I'll be starting in Ul'dah. I've seen my fill of Limsa Lominsa in the beta as it stands, and, much as I'd like to return to my home city of Windurst by way of Gridania, the culture and concept behind Ul'dah has piqued my interest enough to get me to start there.

My first character will be a Hyur. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to make a Highlander or Midlander. He will be a Marauder primarily. I will choose Ul'dah as my nation of choice. The reason I have made these choices is because I enjoyed playing a Warrior in Final Fantasy XI, I was a Hume, and I hailed from Bastok. These choices are not only a tribute to my previous character, but they are also an extension in the sense that I will be able to continue in a new world as a familiar face.

I would really love to be a Miqo'te! I was one on my FFXI account and she was the best character ever!
I would create her as a Keeper of the Moon! It was hard to narrow that one down, I had a hard time deciding which one i liked better at first lol =)

Also I am really digging the old monk look, the Pugilist with the ability to steal? I am completely there! Plus those knuckles always did look awesome.


Ps. I would really really really enjoy a beta key!

Avlon Pepperdine is a Conjurer of the Midland Hyur from Gridania.

Why?
I've always been drawn to forest life and while I'll travel all over, I'd like my home to be in the woods. I'm a good support character, so I'm hoping to head into a healing role. I chose Midland Hyur because I think it is a character I can identify with.

First Character: I am thinking about a male Duskwight Elezen and/or Male Hyur and My first job would most likely be Puglist because my favorite starter job in XI was monk.

Which City? Limsa Lominsa seems to be a central hub and it also has several Guilds.

My first character will be a male midland hyur. I will start in limsa lominsa.


Why?

I think this combination is very reminiscent of my FFXI character that I first created. It was the start of 5 years of playing and I think it would be nice to set foot in Eorzea again as if I were exploring a whole new world but with the same persona as before! Limsa Lominsa just fits the mood for starting a long journey I think.

I'll start with a Hyur character. I'm picking Hyur because I prefer the "technological" races and the humanistic deal about them. I'll likely be building it as a marauder, but depending on how things go, I might lean towards assassin/magic sort of class, if possible.

Starting in Limsa Lominsa, because I'm all about the sea and ships. Hopefully there's some pirating ability... I'm not sure! It all depends on how it works out, so I need to play the game to know. But all in all, I'm going for a Hyur damage dealing, pirate, that is an assassin, and can use magic to mess people up. He should also have big spikes coming out of his helmet so people know he's badass. Plus wings. And a crew. He'll have a magic pirate crew that comes when he blows a whistle, and they all mess stuff up for him.

IT'LL BE SWEET

Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) gladiator starting in Gridania.

Why?
I am choosing to go miqo'te (keeper of the moon) because I'm a cat person have 2 cats at home as for why keeper of the moon is because I am nocturnal. I chose gladiator as I want to try and tank for this MMO. As for why I choose Gridania is because I love forests so Gridania is a natural fit for me.

Highlander Hyur starting in Gridania most likely, I want to be a Highlander because normal Hyur's and Elzen don't appeal to me. As for starting in Gridania that's mostly because my fiancee wants to and we miss Windurst.

I"m going to be rolling a Hyur disciple of war. I'm torn between the classes of Pugilist and Archer, i've always been the person in melee i want to just get up in your and punch the **** out of my target, while archer has been my real following in every MMO i've ever played. Using a bow just seems to be a more natural thing i steer towards. As far as starting i'll be going to Gridania. Lush forests, elementals, unique building architecture just drew me into the area. I've been looking into FFXIV since 2009 and have been trying every chance to get into beta / alpha but to no avail heh.

My first character with be an Elezen Conjurer (Full Healer). I have always loved healing in mmos. Healing in FFXI is probly my favorite though, so I figured healing seemed logical.

My home nation will be Gridania. From the sounds of it, this will be similiar to Windhurst. I also prefer looking at forests, rivers, and a green environment.

Most likely Wildwood Elzen, starting in Gridania, because I was an Elzen in ffxi and that is what my cluster of friends, who also will be playing, decided. I haven't fully decided on the class yet, but probably either Thaumaturge or Conjurer.
