I will be a Seawolf Roegadyn Fisherman and i will start out in Limsa lominsa.

Why?

Limsa lominsa is on the ocean and im a fisherman. I hope to catch some ginormous fish, and it has pirates, so i think that would be pretty cool.

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

I will most likely be a Highlander Hyur Lancer/Culinarian and will start in Gridania. Dragoon was my favorite class in FFXI and I have always preferred poleaxes type weapons in most RPGS. I am always a cook or take up cooking in any MMO that has that skill in it, I just enjoy it the most of the crafting types. Well the main reason for Gridania is because mainly process of elimination, I'm not a huge desert fan and I have been overloaded by Limsa Lomisa screen shots/videos lol.

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.

I'm going to be making a Miqo'te Keeper of the Moon, and most likely going to start as a Pugilist since it has some abilities that will be useful for other classes. Played a Mithra in FFXI, so this will be an updated version of that character.

I'm going to be starting in Gridania because the forest area is a lot more interesting to me than a desert or port city.

My first character will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te. I was a Mithra in XI and want to make my character as much like my XI character in terms of appearance as possible. I prefer the warm skin tones of the Seekers of the Sun, which is why I will go with that clan. I also plan to start in Gridania. That nation-state seems the most appealing to a former Windurstian such as myself. Kitties belong in nature and all that.

I'm still a bit undecided as to what my first character will be. I'm for sure going to be a Lancer, but I'm not certain which race. I'm thinking Midlander Hyur or one of the Elezen factions. As for which nation-state, that one is a bit up in the air too. But I can tell you one thing: I'm not choosing Ul'dah. One of the others. I'm leaning towards Limsa Lominsa, but I really don't know.

As for the why: Since the only definite thing is the class, I'll talk about that: It's a cool class. Yeah, that's basically it. It caught my eye and sounded cool. I've always like Dragoons in FF games, and that's a lot like a Lancer, so that's what I'll try at first.

A Dunesfolk Lalafell will be my first choice (the dark skin is appealing). Subsequently, Ul'Dah will be my starting city simply because it suits the race. I want to be as immersed in the game as possible

My first character will be a wildwood Elezen Archer. I will start in the city of Gridania. I enjoy the archer nature aspect of the city. A city in the wilderness seems to bring more excitement and possibly adventure to my brand new story.

Midland Hyur from Gridinia. I like how that nation looks, surrounded by the trees in the forest. Also, to see if it will run on my computer, pretty sure it will though. I want to stick with Midland Hyur because i have a Hume in FFXI. Also i want to see how the graphics are and how the areas in Eorzea are merged together.

Elezen Archer starting in Gridania. I love finding new ways to utilize ranged classes and Elezen are natural archers. Im quite fond of the outdoors and truly appreciate beautiful settings. With that in mind i felt Gridania would be a good place to start my adventure.

I will be playing a Midland Hyur. My focus will be as a conjuror, but I will be working up my pugilist skills as time allows. I plan to start in Limsa Lominsa mostly to be with my guild, but also because I can see a pugilist/conjuror combo coming from some of the rough and tumble slums of a pirate city.

A Dunesfolk Lalafell DoM from Ul'Dah. I also plan on doing a lot of Weaving Class things.

Why?

I really enjoyed the crafting and gathering in XI until it turned into a grind that emptied my coffers. (Silk Road) I want to play a bard again, but without that possible option (yet) I think I would have fun playing an MMO with a magic class. Lastly I am over 6 1/2 feet tall that lives in Northern New England, so playing a Dunesfolk Lalafell in the Desert lets me play a character that is the complete opposite of what I am in "Real Life" which is a lot of fun.

Hello, first i want to thank you for offering to us a chance for a beta key.

I am going to be playing a Hyur. I always like playing the human classes. I will be focusing on conjurer and thaumaturge. I love playing the support and the backline classes. I am also going to focus on Weaver and Alchemist as my side professions.

I am going to start my travels in Limsa Lominsa, i love the busyness of a port and a popular city, makes me feel right at home!

Again thank you for a chance to win a beta key.

My first character on FFXIV will most likely be a Lalafell Conjurer, I'll play with the Limsa Lominsans. As for why, that's because I think that's the closest my character will resemble the one on FFXI.

My first character will be a Duskwight Elezen Conjurer in Gridania. In FFXI, I really enjoyed playing as a mage, so I expect that a Conjurer character will be best for me. I like the Duskwight Elezen because of their mysterious air and interesting appearance. And I thought I'd start out in Gridania because it looks like a lovely place to to be if you have to be in a city (plus the Conjurer's Guild is there).

I'm going to play a Miqo'te because I like the idea of playing a race that doesn't normally integrate into society. I'm going to start in Limsa Lominsa because then both my character and I will be seeing a brand new world for the first time. The fresh off the boat theme will cary well.

I would be a Miqo'te and Gridania. Reason is that the miqo'te look cute and Gridania sounds like it might be a interesting place to start out cause of the labyrinthine waterways and great wooden structures.

I will make a Miqo'Te Seeker of the Sun and probably start off conjurer. City state will be Gridania. I played a Mithra in FFXI primarily Mage jobs so I think I'll get attached more if I try out something similar. Plus I chose Gridania because it reminds me a bit of Windurst and I loved that city.

Probably Elezen Conjurer, but I plan on pretty much playing everything. That was always the best part of FF...not being so limited. I am considering recreating my character from FFXI...or is it time to leave 11 behind? :P I don't have much of a preference of starting city but Limsa Lominsa definitely has the best name!

I will be creating a Miqo'te, because I loved the mithra's from FFXI, and the emotes just seems so cool for them.I will likely start as a Marauder, 'cause big axes are awesome.
My starting city will be Limsa Lominsa, because a city built on a series of island sounds breathtaking... and really from the videos and screenshots it really seems to be.

Also hopefully their will be good ship story missions there.

A male Lalafell that is a Thaumaturge. My strating city will be Gridania.


Why?

When I played FFXI I always regretted not being a Taru and I loved Windurst; however, my character a Hume from Bastok. So, this time around I'm gonna be a Lalafell and hail from Gridania. I picked Thaumaturge because my first job in FFXI was a Red Mage and Thaumaturge seems like the new Red Mage.

i have not decided between Elezen or Lalafel yet. I also do not know which city I will choose, that will depend on where the normal cities are for the race I choose or whichever I like when more information is available. I like Elezen because of the look but I also may aim towards Lalafel because of MP they got in FFXI, depending on if race has a big impact or not.

Bastok was my home in Final Fantasy XI. The desert landscape has become a major part of my memories in that game, and Ul'dah will do nothing be remind me of home. Although Gustaberg wasn't really a desert, the barren landscape fits for what Ul'dah is described to be in, and i cannot wait to do all of my exploring there.

My first character in FFXIV will be a Marauder Hyur most likely. I've always regretted not playing a Dark Knight for the awesome weapon skills, or finishing my Warrior for Raging Rush, and human because that's what I've been in all MMO's, where I've always been a tank, too, but want to change it up. And they don't have ninja, so that takes into account >.>. My city-state will be Ul'Dah, since it seems to be the one most like Bastok, and I plan on being a major crafter, and it seems to fit.

My first character will be a Hyur Marauder or Pugilist starting in Limsa Lominsa on the Sephiroth server.

Hyur because I like the well balanced stats and attributes of humans in most mmo's which makes for an easy transition to any job class.

Marauder has Bloodbath which is like DRK 2hr in 11 and that was a good ability. Plus, I always loved using Great Axes with my Warrior in FFXI and hated when parties insisted on war/nin tank so this time around I can focus on heavy damage.

Pugilist because I never leveled Monk past 37 for subjob in FFXI but always enjoyed H2H and this class is part thief having Steal and Blindside which seems similar to Sneak Attack.

Limsa Lominsa, being a trade city, should have easy access to crafting materials and Sephiroth server, well Sephiroth needs no explanation^^

I'll definitely be creating a Lalafell and I'll most likely join Limsa Lominsa since most people that I know that are moving to ff14 will be doing so as well. Since I played a taru in ff11 for about 6-7 years, so making a lalafell would be an ideal and natural fit for me.

I'll probably play a WildWood Elezen or Lalafell Conjurer (Best two races for mages imo because of aesthetics/attributes respectively) because mage classes in the FF series have always been my favorite. Healing as a Conjurer is also probably conducive to meeting new people. That said, I"ll be starting off in Gridania the home of the conjurer's guild. The awesome woodland setting will just add to the magic of the game.

I'm really thinking of being a Lalafell. I had been a taru in FFXI ever since the game was released in the US and I can't see being anything else (or closely related to ;) ) Also, I'm looking at starting in Ul'dah. Mining and blacksmithing really peak my interest, so I think I may start there. But who knows. I could start the game and just be blown away by something else, but i think I will be just all together =)

I will be a Hyur Thaumaturge, Botanist, and Carpenter. I will start off in Gridania.

Why?
I always like playing the middle of the road race, just in case I change my mind with what class I want to me. Thaumaturge seems to be the healer class, and I want to be useful in groups.

Gridania will hopefully be beautiful.
