ZAM's FFXIV Phase 3 Beta GiveawayFollow

What will your first character in Eorzea be?

I will try out a Wildwood Elezen Archer. I love ranged combat, and in FFXI I tried all mage classes to fulfill that desire. When LOTRO came out, I decided to try the Archey style class due to the fact that you didn't have to buy ammo, and loved it. Buying ammo was the worst part of Ranger in FFXI for me, and it looks like the Archer has ways to replenish it, so I'm going to give the class a go.

...and what nation-state will you start in?

My wife and I will be in Ul'Dah most likely. She mostly is interested in being a weaver, and as far as I can tell that's where it would be best to start.

Why?

Well, I pretty much just said why I decided those tings above.

I would definately have to go with a Roegadyn. I love runnin up and beatin on stuff but tankin is my passion so a Gladiator will be my main. I enjoy leading others.
Town wise Im gonna have to go with Ul'Dah. Populated trade cities have always been my favorite. U got lots of people to converse with and there is always somethin to do.

My first character will be a Roegadyn. Loved my Galka on FFXI so I'll continue with him on FFXIV. My nation will be Limsa Lominsa. I loved the pirate-look of the city and it has 3 guilds for classes I will be playing: Marauder, Blacksmith, and Culinarian.

A Roegadyn Hellsguard crafter (haven't decided what specifics yet). He will start in the trade City of Uldah. Love the desert and mountain theme, the big red fella should fit right in.

What will your first character in Eorzea be?
- I will play a Roegadyn Seawolf to carry on the legacy of my Final Fantasy 11 "Galka".

What nation-state will you start in?
-The city of Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
-The Roegadyn race has the appeal of being the brute force on the battlefield. The large size of the race also has its
amusements, making for hours of fun when grouping up with anything smaller than you (Everything :D).

The landscape of Limsa Lominsa is very attractive and is the perfect starting place for a seabourne nation-state. I
love the idea of the city connecting various small islands by the many bridges and the environment looks fantastic.

As for the armory system... the Marauder fulfills my motto of "kill it with an axe".

My first character in Eorzea will be a Hyur male Gladiator. I will start in Limsa Lominsa because most people playing beta will get sick of that city and want to start in the other two.

The reason I will choose Limsa is to be in a lesser populated area when retail comes around, and the reason I'm choosing a Gladiator is because I aim to be lead tank in the linkshell I will be leading.

I am planning on making an Elezen Lancer amongst the other Disciplines of War. His name will probably be something out of the books I love reading about Dark Elves (which will look more like dark elves with the more advanced options in character creation). I would also like to start off in Limsa Lominsa because that is not only the area I have seen most of the images of, but I am also a big fan of the "Medieval" structure style. All the screen shots and concept art I have seen so far are amazing.
#1361 Aug 04 2010 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
I will be playing a Miqo'te since I like playing unique races, and the Lalafell annoy me. I'll probably roll Taumaturge first off. I am still undecided on where I will start, since Limsa is the only real place I've seen from beta videos. I do like the look Limsa looks though, so I'll probably start there.

This time around I would like to play as a Roegadyn. They were rather rare in FFXI, and I knew alot of them. So perhaps that made an impression on me.

I would like to start in Limsa Lominsa, as I like the way it looks, and it would make more sense for a sea wolf to have come from that town.

Limsa-Lominsa to pursue fishing and cooking my fave crafts from 11.

My first character will be:

Race: The Miqo’te (was an Elvaan in FFXI and I want to try a new race.)

City: Ul'dah (It's a dessert! Last time around I was from Windurst, they are very different environments.)

Class: Marauder (I was A WHM/BLM mainly last time, I really want to try out a more physical class.)


I am excited for a whole new experience from last time around.

First character is definitely going to be a Lalafell Conjurer.
Starting nation-state is going to be Limsa Lominsa.

Lalafell because they're adorable. And I'm playing conjurer because I've been pretty fond of magic based support classes, and it seems like the best class to fit that role. Limsa Lominsa is my preferred starting town mainly because of the videos I've watched. It looks like a massive town, and that means tons of exploring. =P

For my first and most likely only character I will choose to be either a Wildwood Elezen or a Roegadyn, undecided on which type he will be. The class I will choose will probably be an archer and Ul'Dah will be my nation-state.

Why?

For most fantasy games I play I always choose to be one of the taller races, I like being tall for whatever reason maybe I want to stand out. I always wanted to play a ranger in Final Fantasy 11 so I figured I'd give the archer a spin this time around. I don't know why but I've always liked fantasy cities that were in the middle of a desert, especially large fortressy looking ones and the concept art for Ul'Dah pretty much covers all those points.

What will your first character in Eorzea be?
- I will play a a Plainsfolk Lalafell Conjurer.

What nation-state will you start in?
-The city of Gridania.

Why?
Because I think Lalafells are so cute plus I think caster/mages should be of short stature. The fact that conjurers could be the base class for a main healer offers a good degree of flexibility. The city of Gridania reminds me of the Wood Elf city in Everquest 1, a suspended city in the trees. So many newbies died from falling back then, but it was such a nice place to be that it was worth to pay that price.
#1368 Aug 04 2010 at 6:19 PM Rating: Decent
Well, my character will be a Dunesflok Lalafell Thaumaturge from Gridania.

Why?: Mainly cause in every mmo I play I'm always a Melee Human type character, so this time I'll be doing something completely different then my usual archtype.

I will be going with an Elezen, not sure on the class. I will be starting in Limsa Lominsa, because I like the aesthetic qualities of it. And I figure a good first impression visually will help me get into the game.

My first character will be a Hyur pugilist and my starting nation-state will be Limsa Lominsa. I chose the pugilist because the idea of a tank turning into a thief at any time and vise versa is pure awesome and I also like their fighting style. I chose Limsa Lominsa as my starting place because I want to be a blacksmith on my off time from questing.

Race : The Roegadyn Sea Wolves
Nation-state : Limsa Lominsa

I wanted to play a character with a background close to the ocean. And in Limsa Lominsa, it seems to be perfect for someone like the Roegadyn(Sea Wolves) to be living in. He will fit in perfectly with the type of city Limsa Lominsa is defined.

I'm going to play as a Dunesfolk Lalafell (Thaumaturge) and I want to start in Gridania!

I've always been a big fan of classes with dark magic and really enjoyed blm/drk in FFXI. I think the Lalafell look fun and I especially like the fact that the Dunesfolk live on the backs of large beasts. As for why I'm starting in Gridania, I just like the woods and think it'll be beautiful.

Thanks for the give away!

I'll be going with a Lalafell Conjurer from Limsa Lominsa. I've always been fond of the idea of a conjurer, creating somethings from nothings. Limsa Lominsa just seems to fit the location well for the particular background story I have in mind =)

First character will be male Lalafell Dunesfolk Lancer from Gridania. I'm choosing those options as they are the spiritual successor to my windustrian Tarutaru from FFXI, and small forest folk have always kicked ***.

I will start with an albino Miqo'te I really liked being a Mithra in FFXI and the albino avatar has a meaning with the character surname.
For the class I am interested in the disciple of war lancer but I am really thinking in maybe being a disciple of the hand, because I see everybody saying I am going to be an adventurer but the crafter in FFXIV has a big role and I find more fun to be helpful to my friends than killing monsters.
And for the city I really like the concept of Limsa Lominsa and Ul'dah but I think that in the end I will choose Ul'dah I really like the design that is showed in the official webpage and I never started in a desert city before I want to try what is like, I enjoyed Rabao and Altepa in XI they were wonderful maps to my view.

Race - Miquo'te

Starting City - Ul'dah



I picked Pugilist cause i like to kick and punch! and i picked miquo'te because i like the mithra from 11 and the starting city Ul'dah just seemed like a good choice =)

Class: Conjurer or Thaumaturge

Race: Hyur or Lalafell

Starting City: Ul'dah

I always enjoyed finding NM's that I would be able to duo with my friend's from FFXI, and I hope to continue that in this. I was a taru mage in FFXI so I will most likely continue down that road. Might try Hyur for a change in height :P

My first character will be Miqo'te because I played a Mithra in FFXI and I love the look. Elezen are to cliche', Roegadyn are to large, the Hyur too normal and Lalafell are to small. I will start in Ul'Dah because I want to start as a miner and work on blacksmithing and the other DoH-DoL. The city looks like it will have nice mining spots.

I'm thinking that I'll be a Midland Hyur Lancer, with a sideline into blacksmithing/armorer (weapon and armor upkeep dontcha know?). And what better starting point than in Ul'Dah, merchant hub of Eorzea? There's oodles of gil to be made there! :D
#1380 Aug 04 2010 at 6:31 PM Rating: Decent
My first character in Eorzea will probably be a Sunseeker clan Miqo'te Conjurer and Lancer mix that begins her journey in Gridania. I've reached this decision simply because of good memories in FFXI as a Mithra and I've chosen Gridania just because I like the atmosphere and feel of the area. Aesthetics and atmosphere are very important for me in an MMOG.

Thanks for this opportunity!

My first character will be a Roegadyn Hellsgard Blacksmith / Marauder. I'll start in Ul'dah. I've played so many rogue type characters over the years I'd like to change things up and take on a tank role. The addition of blacksmithing will add utility in weakening mobs and finding extra rewards. The setting of Ul'dah seems like the best fit for a Hellsguard blacksmith... Bring on the heat. Good luck to everyone on the Beta giveaway.

My first character will be a Hyur Midlander starting in Limsa Lominsa. I choose Hyur because I have a tendency of leveling multiple job/class and I plan to be a jack of all trade! Limsa Lominsa because, well they haven't really released any information about the other two city-states and picking the other two would be like shooting at a target in the dark. I would at least like to know what I'm shooting at.

What nation-state will you start in: Ul'dah

Why: Looking to make a character as similar as possible to the one I played in FFXI (Elvaan, Bastok).
#1387 Aug 04 2010 at 6:34 PM Rating: Good
My first character will be a Miqo'te. i've decided that after staring at a male elvaan's *** for the last 5+ years that I want something a little sexier.

Starting nation will be Gridania. tired of living in cities and looking forward to a place that is more nature like.

Well I think I'd start with an Elezen Pugilist in Limsa Lominsa. I started as an elvaan warrior in FFXI in sandy and I'd really love to play this game as an Elezen. Pugilist seems really interesting to me and I want to give it a try! Thanks!

My first character (I'm assuming job, since we can only have one character) will probably be an archer. It's been a long time since I've done archery-types in an mmo, so it's time for something new. I'll either be miqo'te or whatever the Elvaan one is.

As for city, Limsa Lominsa, since pirates are awesome.

My first character will either be a Male Hyur or Male Elezen. I will either go for a tank specialized Pugilist, or a Redmage-type class starting with Thaumaturge and working some melee oriented abilities in from other classes.

I plan to start in Uld'ah primarily because the concept art on the main Final Fantasy XIV website is absolutely awesome for it.

My first character in Eorzea is going to be a Lalafel Dunesfolk. Likely will focus on a caster first, however, I'll be playing with a group of friends and will likely find myself filling whatever role we need :) Think I'll likely be in the Desert city of Ul'Dah ^_^


Why?
I've always played a Taru in XI, and with dunesfolk for the Lalafel (I've always had a fascination with desert dwelling cultures and arabian art) I can't think of what else I would be playing, hmm ... maybe have a big Roegadyn as my aid to order about ^_^

I am most definitely creating a Taru-Taru...ahem...make that Lalafell female character. I have mixed emotions on my starting city, I sort of want Gridania because it is so whimsical; but, Limsa Lominsa has a sweet spot in my heart too. I am 80% Gridania, 20% Limsa Lominsa.

My starting city will be Gridania, because it seems very similar to FFXI`s Windhust, my favourite city-state.

Duskwight Elezen Lancer (love my polearms) and I plan on starting in Gridania because of the mystical woodland setting. I am choosing Duskwight Elezen rather than Wildwood for 2 reasons. 1) I prefer the darker and more serious look they have and 2) I like playing the black sheep in the family character and so a Duskwight in what is probably a Wildwood zone should be just up my alley :)
