ZAM's FFXIV Phase 3 Beta GiveawayFollow

Will be an Elezen Archer in Gridania. Why? The archer is a class grounded in reality and limited to higher social status, which is somehow pleasing.
Also, I'm a Java EE developer and I actually, genuinely, enjoy finding the latest and greatest bugs. And any Beta software release is bug heaven =)

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
I am going to be a Midland Hyur, and my disciples will be Gladiator, Fishing/Mining, and Blacksmith. I will most definitely start off in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
I've always been fond of the sea, and I sail and fish in my spare time in real life! So Limsa Lominsa seems to be the place for me. Also, an ocean town just sounds so much more adventurous than starting in a forest, and Ul'Dah doesn't sound too amazing to me. I hope to hit the ground running, so I will likely pick up fishing since Lominsa is a marine town. As a gladiator, I hope to eventually pick up mining and start smithing as well so I can pick up a few weapons and possibly start making some money. Also, I'm interested in the gladiator's ability to "focus entirely on their sword arm." Plus, Red Lotus sounds awesome! What way to make a melee fighter more interesting than to give them FIRE!!

An Elezen Pugilist from Ul'dah.

Elezen seem very cool. I look forward to some hand to hand combat as a fun change from weapons. Ul'dah looks like an awesome fortress set in the harsh desert. A tough race, a tough class from a tough place.

Plainsfolk Lalafell Gladiator from Ul'dah. I love tanking, so I want to be a gladiator, and Ul'dah seems to fit the bill of my character.

My character will be a Duskwight Elezen Thaumaturge from Ul'dah. I'm not sure yet about the name, but I do know that I will probably take over an hour just to fine tune the design of my character.

I was an Elvaan and main job was Red Mage. I want to continue with my Elvaan heritage into FFXIV and would like to have a job that is an enfeebling master combined with the potential for high damage output. Ul'dah, because it is the Thaumaturge home and even more so, because it seems like it will be a very Bastokian city with the commercial hub & rich in minerals. I know that I will also want to dabble in the Disciples of the Land, especially miner and/or blacksmithing.

Gladiator and Armorer for crafting
Male Hyur
Gridania

I was a taru bard in FFXI for a long time. It'll be nice to try something different. Gridania looks pretty awesome from the screenshots I've seen.

My first character will be a Miqo'te Pugilist because I like hand to hand classes and the Miqo'te's style.

As for my starting city, it will probably be Limsa Lominsa because I like the port city setting and most of my friends are going to be starting there as well.

Race: Miqo'te cat ftw!

Class: Gladiator cause it looks like it will be a tanking class and kinda speedy class
but then again i will try all to see what will fit me best =) and the most fun to play

Starting city: Gridania since it looks like windurst in ffxi loved the style windy had in ffxi
and i hope SE brings the windy feeling back in it but i know they will =)

why?
well i dident get a beta invite the times they sent out keys ><; been a long time player in ffxi
since the NA release and i am a really big fan off the ff series.
and now when i dont have job atm i got to much time on my hands and would give alot off feedback
to make the game great before the actual release been in some betas so have some years behind me =)

Over and out and gl to everyone !

What will your first character in Eorzea?

Hyur Gladiator.

What nation-state will you start in?

Limsa Lominsa

Why?
Since not much is known at about the other starting nations I figured I'd play it safe and start with Limsa Lominsa.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? My first character will be a Lalafell Dunesfolk Archer. And will start in Gridania

Why? I've never played FFXI, however, I've always wanted to play as FFXI equivalent of a Lalafell. They just appeal to me. DUnesfolk look cool and I like their history. I've always played either a mage class or a tank class. I want to play as something new this time around, and an archer class seems to fit. Besides I think a Lalafell archer will look so cool. I like the short history of Gridania that we have been given access to so far. It seems like there is more than meets the eye. Besides the pictures of Gridania makes me want to see the actual in game city even more.

I will play Roegaydn, no contest. Who doesn't want to be a giant lion creature with oversized arms? Although I'm slightly worried I'll have camera issues trying to see my target around my giant frame...

I'll start in Ul'Dah, if possible, as I like the desert/warfare motif that it seems to have going on. And that giant flying...spaceship/building in the picture looks awesome.

I will be a Wildwood Elezen and will make my starting city Ul'dah. I have chosen Elezen because my most beloved character from FFXI was Elezen and I would like to create a similar character. I have chosen Wildwood specifically because I have seen some pictures and like the general design of this type of Elezen.

As for the city choice, Ul'dah did not have any official pictures up on the official Final Fantasy 14 site. I am intrigued by the concept art on the site and am looking forward to exploring the city.

I will be starting out as an Elezen Archer from Ul'dah!

I really enjoy playing the ranged classes and the Elezen seemed to be
the best choice for my future character. Experience and keen senses
learned from living in the forrest. Looking forward to adding my story
to the long ancient lore of the Elezen.

My first character:

Race: Midland Hyur, I choose Hyur because it's a basic character that looks really good and was what my character in FFXI was.

Class: Puglist , I really liked the role of a Monk in FFXI and thief type characters I feel this will suit me well.

Nation-state: Ul' Dah The landscape and cityscape seem to peek my interest.

Character: Highland Hyur
Location: Ul'dah
I've decided to stick with the Hyur as I was once a Hume in FFXI. Ul'dah being the most similar to Bastok my old starting stomping grounds. If chosen I will provide feedback.

I am planning on playing a Elezen Male Gladiator so that I can make a character similar to the one I have in FF11. I am planning to start in Limsa Lominsa because the most information on the area is known. That way I can level up faster and get to the city that I really would like to be at Ishgard.

My first character I think will be a Wildwood Elezen. I wanted to go Elezen because I want to be able to build a support type archer, and they seemed to be the best race to fit my needs.

I believe I will be starting in Gridinia. I feel like if I'm going to be an Elezen Support Archer, then I should make my home in the woods. Seeing as Gridinia is a forest based city, it seems like the correct place for me to start my adventuring in.

I plan to be a Hyur Pugilist, resurrecting my old Hume Monk from FFXI. Also, he must have an amazing beard.

I want to be based in Limsa Lominsa because of the potential beauty of a port city. I've always had a thing for smithing as well.

Miqo'te puglist, I like to play dd/support class that is on the front line and pull hate when needed. As for starting area Gridania, because I have always been a fan of a more magical/forest atmosphere and it reminds me of Windurst.

My first character will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn and I will start in Limsa Lominsa. I was a devoted Sandorian and limsa seems to be the closest to sandy of the 3 nations. It also is a good place to start as a roegadyn.

Class : Conjurer

Race : Lalafell

Starting City: Ul'dah


I chose Conjurer because caster are so powerful and the most fun class to play. I love to play a support class to help others. As far as race i chose Lalafell cause they are so cute and i am small myself kinda reminds me of myself. City i chose is ul'dah, mainly because i plan to become a clothcrafter and the city has a good industry for it :)

My first character will either be a Hyur or Elezen, I anticipate spending hours in the character creator figuring out which! I'll probably start in Gridania, I loved the feel of Windurst in FFXI and I've seemed to have developed an affinity for the color green.

When the world of Eorzea reveals itself to the world I will be choosing the Wildwood Elezen. Ever since FFXI first came out I wanted to be a noble Elvaan, but i wanted to be a heavy magic user. Once i found out that the Tarutaru had an advantage with casting magic i didn't hesitate to create one. But now I understand that there is not any bonus (at least announced as of now), so i will be choosing the noble Wildwood Elezen.

I will be starting off in Gridania because it reminds me of Windurst; I love Windurst!

One: I love kitties. Two I really want to be a part of the beta process and have some input on the game and what is being implemented and what i think should be implemented. Because I love the FF series and this MMO seems to have soo much promise that I want to see how it changes and evolves based on the players inputs.

My first character will be a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te. Having played Mithra for years in FFXI, the choice for me was clear. Because SAM isn't available yet, i'll go with the Archer, as /RNG was able to compliment SAM well in FFXI.

I want to start in Ul'dah because of the big-city vibe it has, based off the description and the photos. Because I was in Windurst for so long, I thought it'd be nice to deviate from the nature-based city this time around.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Woodland Elezen from Gridania.

I love elves and when I played Final Fantasy XI online I ended up choosing a Taru instead. Now is my chanCe to finally have my Elezen archer I've always wanted. I'm still trying to come up with a name and what jobs I'll train for. Something that any class i choose to level can benefit from, like cooking, or potentially goldsmithing. I can't WAIT!

The reason for Gridania is simple, it A. looks like a place i'd want to live and B. looks like a place my woodland elf belongs. I can't wait to see the environment design up close.

I would like to be able to have an impact on game development and to help make sure that the final release is everything that is expected from a FF game.

I'm thinking either a Sun or Moon Miqo'te or a Dunesfolk Lalafell. Leaning towards the Miqo'te cuz I played a taru in FFXI. As for class I'm thinkin Archer or Lancer, since I didn't get very far with those in FFXI as my mains were DRK and SAM.

I'm planning to start in Gridania because I prefer to attune myself harmoniously with nature. lol
