What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
Probably a Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) Lancer, but I'm completely unsure what nation-state I'll start in. I'd like to explore them all and decide which one is for me. I like how the lancer has a lot of support skills which is the class I tend to lean towards in MMOs and I also like the look of the Miqo'te, though I might play Hyur instead.

I'll most likely be an Elezen Gladiator since I've always preferred elf races and tanking, but I'm undecided on which clan. Gridania looks like the best starting city since I like forest environments.

Miqo'te archer or lancer and I will start in Gridania. Archer and lancer seem to have some interesting things to play around with, and Gridania reminds me of my old home of Windurst. :)

Character: Dunesfolk Lalafell Archer

Starting City: Gridania

Why? I'm sort of bringing my Taru from FFXI back to life in this new world, and starting off with the combat style I like the most. Gridania seated in the heart of a forest seems like the most tranquil setting to begin my new adventure.

My first character will be a midland hyur. I will most likely start in Limsa Lominsa. Why? Because it's has pirates! That and it's actually quite a beautiful locale. I'll be picking a hyur as a first character naturally because it's the most human-like. I'm gonna make him look like me!

My first character will be a Marauder Miquo'te within Ul'Dah. I chose MIquo'te because there emotes are quite amazing. I feel that they will be the most popular and overplayed class but what beats a neko design? I just wish there were male versions! And my class will be a Marader! Why? With previous MMO exp the 2h axe wilding warrior seems to be noob friendly and amazingly fun! I enjoy characters that dont necessarily look like they make since! Like a skinny neko female wielding a giant axe. I chose Ul'Dah for a few reasons. Once because the name is just catchy and the quote sticks out. In addition, it reminds me of good times during better days in a old out of date mmo called World of Warcraft. Furthermore, the city display itself looks astonishing.

I will be starting as a male Elezen in Limsa-Lominsa. My character in FFXI was an Elvaan and I loved the aesthetic of the race, especially now that the races are so customizable. As to why I picking Limsa-Lominsa, one word: pirates.

I originally wanted to play a Thief type job, but since there doesn't seem to be one I'm leaning towards starting as a Lancer and spending a lot of time fishing.

I'll be playing a Miqo'te archer to start, with heavy emphasis on crafting. I'll probably start in Limsa Lohmisa as fishing was a favorite pasttime of mine in XI and I'd like to repeat that.

My first character will be a Midlander Hyur starting in Limsa Lominsa; I will be playing a gladiator.

I like the education the midlanders get and playing a tank character are most fun because of their ability to lead is much better compared to other types of playstyles.

My first character will be a male Hyur starting in Limsa Lominsa. Gotta love the incredible coastal view. I also want to be a Thaumaturge. Maybe a Lalafell would be better-suited for that, but I can't help it, I love the Hyurs! Hope to be able to see the beta and help test for bugs!

My first character will be a Hyur Midlander starting city will be Gridinia or Limsa Lominsa. Because I am such a anime fan I'm going to create a character after one of my favorite anime character. I dare not say the name or anime because someone here may read it and steal my name and I'll forever be lost =.( (Note the period place between the sad face is a picture of me with a mole being sad.

My starting city is either Gridinia or Limsa Lominsa because back in FFXI I was a Bastokan. Don't get me wrong I love Bastok, but I would love a new surrounding area to log off and on to.

Thanks for reading.

My first character will be a male Dunesfolk Lalafell Conjurer from Gridania. I'm going to choose Conjurer with a ittle background in Fisher/Botanist/Alchemy/Culinarian first because I have always been one to pick the Heal/Support archetype in every MMO that I have played, but it will also be nice to be able to throw in some magical destruction or just kick back and enjoy some nice, relaxing crafting when needed. I will start off in Gridania because I have always been most comfortable with the heavily wooded, forest-like areas in the games that I have played. Why Lalafell you say? Simply because I am short and come from a short family and feel that it is only right to carry that on in every game I play.

Race - Lalafell (Dunesfolk)
Gender - Male
Class - Main: Conjurer Sub: Fisher/Botanist/Alchemy/Culinarian
Starting Area - Gridania

My character will be a Duskwight Elezen and starting in Gridania.

I always liked the Elf type races and have been a long time fan of the D&D Drow race so Duskwight seems like a good fit. I chose Gridania because I think I would feel more at home there being close to the Lancer guild, and even though it hasn't been mentioned I imaging the Archer guild will be there as well (if there even is one).

My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen / Archer, and will start in Ul'dah.

I am new to Final Fantasy MMO, however, I have been a big fan of the FF series (having recently finished FF XIII with Platinum Trophy). I choose Elezen / Archer because I enjoyed playing the Amazon in Diablo 2, and Ul'dah because I am a city person :)

I upgraded my PC for this game, and really looking forward to it.

My character would be a miqo'te keeper of the moon because I like their background story and their look, plus I was a hume in FFXI and that got boring. Also just for general awesomeness.

Gridania is where I would like to start because it is in the woods (like Windurst) and I like the sound of wooden architecture.

What: I will be a Hyur Male and a midlander. I want to create a conjurer and be aligned with Gridania.
Why: I always play as a caster class and I chose Gridania because it seems like the center for magical and crafting types, both of which are where my primary intrest lie in the game.

Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) and Gridania. I was a Hume in FFXI and thought I could use the refreshing change. I find the appearance of the Miqo'te appealing. As for Gridania, I chose this nation-state because I find the concept art lovely – and I am attracted to the woodland/forest aesthetics.

My first Character is a toss up between a Highland Hyur Lancer because I like the way Lancer sounds game play wise and because Highland Hyurs look AWESOME. OR a Hellsguard Roegayden Gladiator because I liked the Galkans in FFXI but never liked the fact that they had tails. It always threw the armor they were wearing off, and it bugged me.

As for my starting City-state would be Ul'Dah because I like the idea of a desert town knowing for arenas lol. Also because it is a hub for materials for any craft, which I did not do much of in FFXI and want to follow in FFXIV

Although I don't expect FFXIV to be any kind of FFXI clone, my experiences in Vana'diel over the past several years will definitely influence my decisions when I start out in FFXIV. Having created a few characters and myriad mules I've realized I have clear preferences in the world of Final Fantasy.

While I may end up creating a few characters and experimenting through trial and error, I'm confident the first character I make will be a wildwood Elezen Lancer. Throughout my experience in FFXI, playing as an Elvaan has always been my favorite. The character models look both graceful and imposing in their gear and their battle animations are often the coolest, IMO. I also plan to fish for a chance to make a little money and spend some relaxing time away from battle. I've chosen Lancer because I loved the polearm as a weapon, but while DRG was cool, I'm hoping to see the lance used with wider variety and without the (awesome, but) purple armor.

I am definitely 100% set on starting in Gridania. Over time, San d'Oria became the only nation I would start characters in because I so loved the surrounding forests in contrast with the rocky terrain of Bastok or the plains outside of Windurst. Gridania looks even more enchanting and reminds of a cross between Rivendell and Lothlorien from LoTR. I definitely prefer the woodland atmosphere and while I've never had the opportunity to REALLY get into roleplaying in game, I do enjoy the idea of creating an detailed back story for my character and getting "into" the game a little; the forest-esque cities definitely help with that.

My first character will be a " Hyur " and I've decided to start in Limsa Lominsa. I've decided to go Hume just to pay Homage to my first character in FFXI who was a Hume. Also decided Limsa Lominsa because of its sky'ish looks, the fact that I'm interested in Fishing and Blacksmithing, and with hopes to join the navy that protects it the "Knights of the Barracuda" lol

I will be a Miqo'te in FFXIV because I loved my Mithra in FFXI. I like faster more agile characters that can excel at any class. This is important because while I plan on starting as a Pugilist (DPS and Tank when needed), I like to dabble in all jobs/classes from time to time. For obvious reasons FFXI remains the only MMO that I wasn't an altoholic in, and I look forward to not having to switch characters in FFXIV as well :)

I plan on starting in Gridania. I'm hearing that it has a more central location (if that matters), and I like the more woodsy and magical atmosphere. Plus the city specializes in woodworking and leatherworking, which I plan on taking up both crafts and will decide which one to excel at once I get comfortable with them.

I will be playing a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te. She will most definitely be an Archer of Limsa Lominsa. The archer type style completely goes with my play style in other games and MMO's. I am a fan for the agility and thief type characters, I have played THF, NIN, and RNG in XI and have enjoyed it a ton. The lack of agility jobs available at the moment limits me to really favoring the Archer. I like trying new things and from what I have seen the Keeper of the Sun Miqo'te most resemble the Mithra of XI while the Keepers of the moon seem different and somewhat experimental for SE. Limsa Lominsa will be my starting city because from what I have read it seems like it will have a really nice look with unique buildings and while outdoors great scenery. The disadvantages of where you start seem easily overcome and I like the idea of being on its own island separated from the main continent.

I probably plan on starting with a Miqo'te thaumaturge, probably from the Keepers of the Moon clan. I plan on focusing on healing and cooking! The city I hope to start in is Ul'dah because it sounds like a pretty busy town.

Oh god, I hope I win!!!!

My first character will be a Miqo'te conjurer starting in gridania. I'm choosing a conjurer because my friend is gonna be a gladiator/pugilist and tank things and me being able to heal will make 5 star leves much easier. We decided Gridania because we like the environment more then the desert and we've been watching so many beta streams that we want something other then limsa lominsa. My reason for picking a Miqo'te is because I just like the models better I may end up being a lalafell but as of now it will be Miqo'te.

My first character will be a Male Highlander Archer, starting in Ul'dah. I've always loved ranged classes in every game I've played, so going Archer didn't require much thought. Ul'dah seems to be the closest city to Bastok, and has the most interesting lore to me, thus starting there. I always play Human, and with my ancestry lying in the Highlands of Scotland I just have to go highlander.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Dunesolk Lalafell. I will be starting in Gridania, for several reasons. In FFXI I loved Windurst, for how magical-y and forest-y the city was, which appeals to me as I tend to roleplay characters that are scholars and study magic. Gridania seems the most like Windurst to me!

I will be creating a Roegadyn character because smashing tiny enemies always amuses me. Ul'Dah sounds so mysterious, I am sure their storyline will be amazing.

I want to start a Highland Hyur Lancer and start in Ul'Dah. I like the idea of a battle mechanic of the Lancer where mid-range and line-of-sight play a key role into playing the roles efficiently. The Highland Hyur seem more dynamic than the Midlanders who are more of a blank slate. I think the desert would be a very exotic place to call home, and give's my character a more interesting back-story than a lush water-based culture. His name will most likely be Naugromger, a character name I have come up with for personal stories, and one that I find to be fitting with my chosen race/job/location.

When I was playing FF11 I was a war and like dealing damage such as Marauder. This class fits what I'm looking for in strength and power. The other reason I want to be a Marauder is to have fun and I feel that this class will provide it for me.

As for Conjurer, it will be fun to play a class that can heal and deal damage, I have never really given White Mage a chance, so I really want to try a healer class this time around. Why Gridania? The setting is so appealing, a beautiful forest, reminds me of Windurst! It is also home to the Conjurer guild so double win! :D

Puglist! It is the closest thing to Ninja I can get. I plan to play a Hyur Highlander, do to their rugged look and feel they would fit more in my vision of a "ninja". I plan to start first in Limsa Lominsa, I feel it will have more of a starting place I want to start at.

I will be playing a Planesfolk Lalafell and will probably be starting as a conjurer in Gridania. As to why, I like the forest feel the description of the place gives. I am not certain if it will be like Windurst, but it also feels like a planesfolk Lalafell would start there as well.

My first character in Eorzea would be a lalafell conjurer in Gridania. Lalafell because I've always regretted not being a taru in FFXI, this is my chance to make up for it... although I will admit I like taru's design (and proportions) slightly better. Conjurer because I've always liked the healing classes in MMOs. This one has some more offensive capabilities thrown into the mix so it will be something different, too. And lastly, Gridania because I've always liked the naturey kind of towns and cities in games.

Thanks for the giveaway!

These are my choices because, in every other MMORPG I have played, I have always excelled at being a healer, and I don't have a specific choice because it is not a huge deal to me, I just want to play with the people I enjoy playing with to make the experience better.
