First Character - Hyur Marauder
State - Limsa Lominsa

Wanted to always try out a pure dps class and never was a fan of other systems that utilize the war build as dps. As for the city state sounds interesting as a more militant type of government and would be fun to see how well it works out in the game.

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

My first character: Keepers of the Moon Miqo'te
Nation-state: Gridania
Why:Final Fantasy can always use more actual female cats =^^=. I met my husband on FFXI, and we were both Mithras. It would be nice to bring back old memories from us both being kittehs again. I'd choose Gridania, because it has beautiful scenery and architecture.

I will be playing Mi'qote Seekers of the Sun and the nation will be Girdania. Reason being, I'm an avid player of Mithra and my 1st home-nation was Windurst. I would like to repeat the same feel when I was 1st time playing FF11; the warmth of nature. Its the most befitting setup for starting an MMO adventure.

My first character will be Wildwood Elezen in the city of Gridania. Reason being, I have always been an Elvaan when I played FFXI, I enjoyed the way they look in armor and stuff.

My first character will be a Hyur Male Midlander Marauder, and I will start in Limsa Lominsa. I began my FFXI adventures as a Hume Male in Bastok almost seven years ago now...and for the sake of tradition, and nostalgia, I will once again play as a "human" character. I'm looking forward to the seafarer theme presented in Limsa Lominsa, and look forward to adding playing as a "pirate" instead of a "Paladin" this time around. ;D

I'm planning on playing either a lalafell or hyur female lancer. The lancer appeals to me because it is is close combat, but not completely in the action. I'm not sure between the races because lalafell are cute and hyurs are hot. I'm a female and not sure which I want to go with yet:) I'm going to start in gridania because I love nature, and I imagine it will be really pretty!

My character will be a Lalafell Conjurer in Gridania. In ffxi I played a male Tarutaru Blackmage and after trying out all the cities I ended up staying in Windurst because of the naturisc feel. Gridania reminded me of Windy which is why I'm choosing to start out there. Also, my love of Tarutarus and seeing the world from such a small size is why I chose lalafell.

My character....hm. Either a Marauder or Gladiator. Blacksmith will likely be my money-making job. I like two-handed melee weapons more than magic or bows. He"ll be a Midlander Hyur and will be from Gridania, mostly because I like their aesthetic.

Well, from my personal prefrence I will be playing a Midland Hyur because if at some point I want to try to roleplay the character in some fashion or another I want to play what I know, and Hyur seems more... human like.

As for the city state I plan on joining Limsa Lominsa simply because of all the pictures I have seen those showing that city caught my interest the most. Im excited for this game so any chance to get into the beta at all would be most welcomed.

My first char will be a Midland Hyur Conjurer from Gridania because I have formerly played as taru, but I want to change to a human-like character to continue a backstory I've been working on for some time. Also, I love the concept Gridania work!

My first character will be a Miqo'et most likely Moon. Leaning toward Pugilist cause hand to hand is always fun :D
I'd like a nice lofty house in Gridania, cause I've always liked the fantasy forest cities built up in the trees.

The first character that I create in Eorzea will be a Pugilist. I have played FFXI for many years now, and I still play off and on. My 75 Thief has been the most fun I've had with the game, and recently I have grown fond of the Monk class. The Pugilist seems like a nice blend of each of these classes, maybe even mixed with a bit of Ninja in there. I think it will be a very fun class, while still maintaining some spontaneity using both the defensive and offensive stances.

I will choose to start in the Gridania nation-state. I started at Bastok in FFXI and although I liked it the most, I now grow weary of the brick and mortar look. I like the appeal of the forest-like area that I think Gridania will provide. It almost seems like it will be a mix of Windurst and San d'Oria. Also, Gridania is home to Leatherworkers and Foresters, which I plan on taking up and utilizing those roles for my Pugilists armor, and for sustaining income.

I cannot wait for this game!! I am so excited!!!

Roegadyn Lancer, Limsa Lominsa

For starters we can punt Lalafell without much effort. I played a Hume in FFXI and really liked how big and commanding Galka were, if I was able to make 1 change with my playtime in FFXI, it would have been to be a Galka, and now I can in FFXIV.

I very much want to be a miner as my first character.

I would enjoy starting in Ul'Dah as I think it is appropriate given my commercial aspirations. I enjoy contributing to the economy and this seems a good combination. I imagine it might be cool to play the Roegadyn race for this, although Lalafell could be interesting for such a hands on role. At the end of the day helping to grow the economy is critical, and important for any game with serious crafting professions. I love the economic game and feeling like you play a part in building and sustaining the infrastructure the player base uses for supply. Other than that I would later consider a second character as a blacksmith to compliment. Looking forward to what promises to be a great game.

Hellsguard Roegadyn BlackSmith/Miner/Marauder. As for nation-state, Ul'Dah.

Why?
They seem like 5 great tastes that go well together. Based on what is known, all the above should compliment eachother well... along with my playstyle.

Time will tell.

First character: VOLCANO Roegadyn!!!! Probably Lancer (just won't be the same without a wyvern though), and from Limsa Lominsa.

Why: I NEVER played a Galka in FFXI, so I wanted to make that my first char in FFXIV. Also, I love lancer and Limsa reminds me of Jeuno, my favorite place to hang out.

Most likely Lalafell pugilist in Gridania!

Why?
Because of the cuteness of Lalafell and I have always been into punching people....thus the pugilist.
And lastly there seems to be more trees in Gridania!

I will be a Roegadyn, not sure which clan yet, but it will be a DoW Gladiator starting in Uldah. I have always wanted to try Botanist as well, so that will be my first DoL. I have always played a mage job in any MMO, so I will start FFXIV a bit differently this time. Regarding Botanist, I think it's a DoL class that deserves to be tested, and it might even be fun.

My first character will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell and I would like to represent Ul'Dah. The reason for my choice of Dunesfolk is that they caught my eye at the first sight of Final Fantasy XIV, and that they don't seem like the typical short race this time around, I guess what I mean to say is aesthetically they don't look awkward. My reasoning for choosing Ul'Dah is that the prospect of exploring a desert city with ancient middle east style architecture and clothing is exciting, especially since I've never had a desert city as a "home" for ANY of my characters so far.

Character: Midland Hyur / Archer

I generally play ranged class, so sticking with what I know best in FFXIV. I never liked how Elves are created in FF, which is race I usually pick, so just going with Human.
As for the City, Gridania seems to be Windurst-like:)

I'll definitely start in Gridania. I love trees!

I want to be a part of the beta so I can help report problems and make the game better.
Especially since I'll be playing FFXIV for aloooooong time.
I also want to test party play and get a feel for group tactics and fighting with large numbers.

A keeper of the moon Miqo'te, goldsmith, starting in Gridania.

Why?

I love the way that the Miqo'te move, emote, etc. I also like the idea of playing the nocturnal tribe in the lush forests of Gridania. Give me trees over desert and sea any day! While I am sure I will eventually move into a melee job, I can't resist rolling my sleeves up and jumping into crafting. I tried my hand at goldsmithing in ffxi and I'd love to see what they've done with the crafting system in this game.

I will be creating a Hyur male to continue my adventures from my Hume male in FFXI. I find it exciting to be able to explore this new world and continue it with the exact looks of my FFXI character but with much improved visuals and motion captured movements.

I will be choosing the City-State Gridania because of its beautiful environment and lore. Also, I am very interested in the Conjurer job system, so with the Conjurer's Guild being located in Gridania, it is a perfect choice.

Good luck to all future citizens of Eorzea!

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? I am planning on being either a gladitor or lancer. I will be either a Lalafel or Miqu'to. I plan on starting in Gridania.

Why? I like the tanking aspect of gladitors and the control of the fight that the lancer has. I choose Gridania because it looks like its in the middle of everything so traveling will be easier. It's also a forest city which reminds me of the tarutaru city in ffxi (which is where I started).

-My first character in FFXIV will be a Roegadyn Pugilist, reason being that in FFXI, my Galka Monk was always my favorite character. It was great, being that massive, and using nothing but my own 2 hands to deal out destruction. As far as my 1st nation-state, it will be Limsa Lominsa, because it seems like such a drastic change from what I'm used to in MMO's, and the landscape looks absolutely amazing in what few pictures I've seen.

Going to start off as a Roegadyn Thaum in Ul'Dah. I like playing support classes so it should be fun, not to mention that the desert city looks completely different from any of those that were in FFXI and very mysterious.

I want to start in Limsa Lominsa because "its economy is driven by shipbuilding, fishing, and blacksmithing..." and i plan on being a blacksmith later on as well.

I plan on being a Roegadyn Marauder starting in Limsa Lominsa. I was a Galka in FFXI and enjoyed them very much. Nothing better than having a big character carrying a big axe. As for Limsa Lominsa the flag reminded me of San D'Oria, which was my favorite city in FFXI.

My first character will be a male Hyur Highlander and a Thaumaturge.
His starting nation will be Ul'dah.

Why?

I like the look and feel of the highlander hyur from videos I've seen and from the benchmark.
As one of the newer races they grabbed my attention.
Thaumaturge use dark magic which appeals to me.
I could not resist Ul'dah, the gem of the desert, with its promises of prosperity and power, not to mention fine clothes and jewels.

My first character will be a midland hyur gladiator from the city of Limsa Lominsa with armourer as my DoH. No matter what MMO, I've always loved playing the tank role, and a gladiator / armourer best fits that description for FFXIV. Also, I've seen the most content about the city of Limsa Lominsa and absolutely love it! Been decided on this setup for months and I wouldn't have it any other way :)
