What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
I plan to play a Hyur based (undecided if highlander/midlander will need to play with the character creator) Thaumaturge/fisherman to start off with, and I am leaning towards the forests of Gridania. I've played in sparse areas (such as Bastok), and I remember riding north and arriving in the forests and thinking wow this game really isn't that drab. Aesthetics will definitely play a role in whatever city-state I call home.
