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

I will be a Blacksmith Lalafell and start in the nation of Limsa Lominsa.
Why? It is because I like crafting as a way to make money and be able to do so on a starting trade city very early in the game.

I will be playing a Midland Hyur Thaumaturge because I have always played the mage/healer classes, I also like the thaumaturge's ability to buff/debuff and nuke/drain/heal.
I will start in Limsa Lominsa because I have a liking for seaside cities and love pirates.

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

My first character in Eorzea will be a Wildwood Elezen Marauder, and I will start in Limsa Lominsa.

A couple of reasons for this. I chose to be an Elezen because after playing a tarutaru in ffxi for so many years, I'm ready to play a different type of character. Also, I'm very interested in Marauder lore and how it is apparently tied to pirates. When I entered the FFXIV website for the first time and saw the Elezen Marauder against The Astalacia backdrop, I was hooked!

My first character will be a Lalafell Conjurer in Limsa Lominsa. I think the Lalafell are adorable and will get a huge kick out of playing that race. As for Conjurer, I will choose this class simply for the unique mix of magic that they get, being able to cure then nuke with elemental spells should prove to be interesting. Limsa Lominsa is full of pirates and pirates are cool, well maybe not as cool as ninjas, but still cool. Either way I hope I am selected to play in Beta because that would totally make my year. ^^

Conjuer (male) in Gridania.

Why?
Lafafell because they remind me of my old adventures with my FFXI taru. Conjurer because I like the idea of the class. Gridania because it's the easiest to spell.

Class: Archer
Start city: Gridania

Thats all the info I needed to provide right? Don't know what race I would go with, not given it much thought. I like archery though, so I know Archer is probably the class for me.

My first character will be a Lalafell Dunefolk Gladiator, played a Mithra in FFXI so gotta change it up this time around, always wanted to do a TaruTaru Paladin in FFXI, haha. Starting city will most likely be Limsa Lominsa.

Hyur - Marauder - Limsa Lominsa

I think marauder is going to be the "sleeper" class of FFXIV. If battles are anything like I imagine them, AOE will be useful. I chose Limsa Lominsa simply because the pictures I have seen of the city are breathtaking.

My first character will be an Miqo'te archer because that's always been my favorite type of class to play in any games where it's available. I was a mithra when I played in FFXI so that race really grew on me. =)

I'll start in Gridania because archers love trees! =P

Class : Conjurer

Race : Lalafell - I spent years in ffxi wishing that I had selected a taru taru due to the great emotes. Also, whilst I intend my primary class to be a conjurer, I really liked the look of the Taru's in full battle gear so since I plan to level a variety of "jobs" in ffxiv, Lalafell was the natural choice.

Starting City: Probably Gridania - I enjoy playing in forests and believe that the graphical quality of the game will be best shown off in a forest zone. Also, I like the idea of Carpentry as a class given the opportunities to build furniture items for the mog house (or FFXIV's equivalent).

Leaning towards Gridania currently. I'm betting with it's dense forests and coursing rivers it's going to be the most gorgeous starting zone.

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

My first character in Eorzea will most likely be an Miqo'te Pugilist fromt he Lima Lominsa nation. As to why there's actually quite a bit too it, I suppose I'll start with why I chose Lima Lominsa first. I am actually attracted to the lore of the game, and Lima Lominsa being a city on the water sort of deal. And I've always been interested in the freedom of the sea so being part of a sea faring nation appeals to me. As for the character I've always been pretty monk-centric in RPGs, the idea of someone who doesn't really need weapons to fight along side people who do is definately something that strikes me as cool. As well I'm a bit of a sucker when it comes to cat girls, especially when they don't follow the cutesy catgirl norm.

Class
- Pugilist or mix some class abilities to form, as best I can, a Red Mage

Race
- Hyurs

Local
- Gridania

I personally just like the way the male Hyur's look over the other male races. Classes I really look forward to being able to mix it up. But then again I had a ton of fun with my monk in FFXI. I can't wait to see what Gridania looks like... it sounds a lot like Windhurst and I LOVED that city. I just can't wait to experience XIV.

Lalafell/Gladiator and Ul'Dah. I have always loved tarus so that is why I playing a Lalafell. I also really enjoyed tanking in FF11 and I think I will enjoy it just as much in FF14. Ul'Dah has the Arena and Gambling according to the offical site so I want to start there!

What will your first character in Eorzea be? Though I am torn between the Hyur and a Miqo'te females, it will be a Miqo'te this time to start. With the information I have, she will either be a Conjurer or a Lancer.

What nation-state will you start in? Gridania

Why? I was always intrigued with the FFXI mithra and wished I had started with one. With the new look now, I am determined to start with this class. As for the city, it looks like my kind of city with the forest and lake type setting just like Windurst. I am hoping for rich detail in the waters and waterfalls if present... and more real such as birds and whatnot. I was a Windy fan since XI and from the looks of it this will bring me right at home once again.

I'm going to have to pick a Hellsguard Roegadyn from Gridania. I've always liked playing the humble magic-user (usually a healer) who appears to be the typical tank at first glance. Conjuration is my specialty, and Gridania has the strongest ties to the elements as well as some outstanding environs. A Hellsguard Roegadyn in a magic city? Obsurd! And why is he wearing that silly hat?!

My first character will be very similar to my hume Atriant in FFXI except i will create an aged version of him. My clan will be midland Hyur. My starting class will be Conjurer as it reminds me of my favorite job from FFXI, blm. My starting city will be Ul'dah as it is reminiscent of San D'oria to me, as well as the Ul' which brings up fond memories fighting mobs in sea.

My first starting character will be an Elezen male, DoW: Gladiator. Elezen because I was an Elvaan in FF11, was a ranger there, but playing with a group of friends... I've decided to be the tank for our little party.

The starting city will be Gridania. The forest setting just seems the most natural to an Elezen, it's also reminiscent of the Ronfaure setting back in FF11.

My first character will be a male Midlander Hyur Conjurer from Gridania. I am choosing Midlander Hyur because I've always liked the idea of playing human characters in the midst of all sorts of fantasy races. I am choosing a conjurer because I like the idea of having both offensive and support magic. Finally, I am choosing Gridania because of the Conjurers' Guild and the fact that it seems the most like Windurst, which was my FFXI city-state of choice.

My first character will most likely be a Hyur, and I intend to start in Ul'dah, similar to how I was a Hume and started in Bastok in FFXIV. What can I say, I like deserts in RPGs, I always thought they're some of the more interesting zones to explore.

I will be a Lalafell for sure, my weakness for Taru's ran strong all through 11.

And my nation-state will be Gridania as it does seem that it will have a very nature relaxing vibe to it and allow me to just go about my merry munchkin way.

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

I will choose an Archer Miqo'te as my first class from the Gridania nation-state.

After being part of FFXI for over 6 years my favorite npc character happens to be Semih Lafihna. With that being said, I have always wanted to create a character similar to her when I started my next adventure. I will also be picking Gridania because of how much it seems to remind me of Windurst. Windurst has always seemed much more culturay deep in comparison to the other nations I had the pleasure of visiting.

While I've considered making a Highlander named Philip Rivers because Philip Rivers owns in real life, I'll probably end up trying my best to recreate my character from FFXI, a Mithra named Che. I spent most of my time cooking and fishing, which is probably the role that I'll fall into again, and I'll probably spend most of my combat leveling as a Pugilist - something about a Thief/Monk hybrid just sounds cool as ****. I get nostalgic over time spent in Bastok, so whichever between Limsa Lominsa and Ul'dah most resembles it is where I'll probably want to start, though I'm probably playing with a group, so it might not be entirely my choice to make.

I'm going Wildwood Elezen Archer class just cause im hopeing the traits of good eye sight give bonus to rng acc. Also I was a Elvan in FFXI and I love the tall sleek look of that race.

Main city will be Gridania cause its in the woods where I think my race belongs. I like Gridania also cause 1st time I seen it it reminded me of the wood city the elves lived in Rivendell from Lord of the Rings, so seams a fitting home for a wildwood Elvan. Also gonna craft in Botanist and Woodworking altough leather is in the air with woodworking. will probly use Pugilist to get some of the traits from that class as well for my main Archer.

My first character will be a Female Hyur named Atheena Greeves and In Limsa Lominsa.

Why?

Atheena Greeves is my personal character made exclusively in a short story I wrote back in Jr. high (15 years ago) and has made only one entrance into the MMO scene (EQ1), So I though it was about time to introduce her into the FF series. Since I've made my mind to play a Pugilist this time around I chose to make my nation-state Limsa Lominsa since its a place that looks to have "Shady" travelers abroad there. This unlikely hero will have an Impact on her fellow adventurer's!

I plan to make a Dunesfolk Lalafell from Ul'dah named Nymh Fizzgig. My deity will be Nald'thal and my first class will probably be a Lancer or Archer. I chose Ul'dah because the desert metropolis' battle arenas interest me, and I'm intrigued by this Syndicate that runs things from the shadows. I think Ul'dah will have a great story behind it and I'm looking forward to all of the adventures as I play through the storyline.

Based upon the phase 2 beta classes, Hyur Lancer from Ul'dah. Ul'dah seems to be an interesting departure from the starting cities in other games. If the in-game visuals match the concept art we've seen, then Ul'dah is the place to be.

A Wildwood Elezen Pugilist/Lancer for fighting classes and Blacksmith/Miner for my crafting class.

want to start in Gridania.

Why?

Played a Elven MNK in FXI for 5 years and loved every minute of it! DRG was my secondary favorite. I also plan to level both Blacksmith and Miner. Was a level 100 Woodworker in FFXI and 60 Blacksmith. I was always wanting to take Blacksmith to max level but never got around to it.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Lalafell Pugilist and I will start in the nation-state of Gridania. I want to be a Lalafell because I played for two years as a hume in FFXI and then another year as a Tarutaru but had a lot more fun with the Taru character even though I was rehashing a lot of the content I completed with my hume character. I am starting as the Pugilist because it seems the most likely to evolve into a ninja-like class which was my favorite in XI. I am opting for Gridania because I have already seen too much beta footage of Limsa Lominsa and Ul'dah is just not appealing to me.
