Wildwood Elezan, Lancer, Harvester, from Gridania~

Why? I played ffxi for years and want to see if this game is worth my time. Want to start in Gridania because I think Limsa Lominsa looks so boring with the total lack of plant life or trees in the distance, looks so unfinished.
Elezan because I believe it fits my personality and gf says fits my looks(except for the ears, hoho...)

My first character will be a Lalafell Dunesfolk, Lancer and I'll start in Limsa Lominsa.

Quote:
Why?


Mostly because of my experience in FFXI. I had always wanted to be a tarutaru, but didn't like the stats that went along with it (as I usually favored DD classes), so I ended up being a hume, but was always jealous of people who picked tarutarus. It seems like races in FFXIV will be more balanced so hopefully I can pick Lalafell without sacrificing anything!

I always liked the polearm weapon, and was planning on being a dragoon in FFXI, but shortly after starting they were nerfed pretty badly (drg/sam could no longer meditate to 100 tp and penta thrust wouldn't return 50 tp anymore). So I ended up playing SAM to still get some polearm action.

I'd like to dabble in fishing, and I think starting in Limsa Lominsa would help facilitate that. Also I think The Drowning Wench is the best name for a bar in a port I've ever heard (in game or irl)!

I'm gonna be making a Wildwood Elezen and the class I will be playing is Lancer. I'm plan to start off in Gridania.

Why?
I played as a Hume in FFXI, so I wanted to try a different race this time and Elezen seems to standout for me. I chose to play as Lancer because I'm a DD at heart and after researching this class for awhile, I feel it fits my play style. As for Gridania, I love the huge forest setting in this nation. It has a peaceful feeling to it and it's also fun getting lost in the woods. ^^

- Been a tarutaru since FFXI and I like cute characters!

What nation-state will you start in?

Why?
- Blacksmith and trading port seems more appealing to me.

My first character is

Class : Lancer
Race : Hyur
Starting City: Ul'dah

I love DRG in FFXI and therefore i will stick with Lancer, although it don't have the jump skills and i think is a bit different as well but i'm cool.

I choose Hyur coz they simply resemble a real life human looks i guess.

I like Ul'dah because I like the description, the concept art was very appealing as well. Desert, fame, power, money, dome-shaped citadel, well you can't go wrong with that. ^_^

Why?
Archer, I've always done best with this or similar classes in any MMO I've played.
Hyur, I'm not really sure why I want to start as a Hyur, it just seems the most appealing to me.
Gridania, once again, I'm not sure why, I just like the look of Gridania compared to the other 2 cities.

My first character will be most likely lalafell conjurer mostly because I've always been either a ranger or a caster class and i think it be nice to try out mostly healing with the ability to go dps on occasion.

The first city state will be gridania just because of how it looks i don't know much about them at the moment.

My first character is going to be a Duskwight Hyur(formerly: Midlander), who was rejected by those he identified with. Awful, Duskwight Elezen! To this day, our immigration, the wars... we had to find peace! ...but still after peace has been found? You deny our solemnities...?! A Pugilist's fists await.. I WILL BE the swift hand humble hand in Gridania. Duskwight Elezens will be educated and then enlightened on the value of their salt!

I am swifty hand mchumble hand!

My first character will be a Midland Hyur because I was a Taru in FFXI and got tired of seeing Galka tails in my face and getting new gear that looks great on the Humes but you can't even see it on a Taru. I am going to start in Limsa Lominsa because the coastal area sounds like it will look amazing, 100 times better then Bastok I hope.

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

Hello ZAM community!

I have never had the opportunity to participate in the Final Fantasy MMO previously released, but I am a fan of the console games. From the races listed on the SE site, I would have to say that the most alluring character race to play will be a Miqo'te, Keeper of the Moon. I would have to say that archer looks fun, but so does pugilist! As for the nation-state that I will play from depends on where my current guild friends will vote on majority to start at. Personally I would like to see Gridania, all of the lush greens of the forest and native wildlife should really make this area "pop"!

I have to say that I am undecided on a male Hyur, and a Miqo'te, I would like to make a Hyur since I've played a hume on FFXI for 4 years. I would also like to try out Migo'te since that is the race that my wife loves and will play.

As for the nation/state that I would start in, I think it would have to be Limsa Lominsa because of the architecture, I am a 3D graphic artist and this is absolutely gorgeous designs.

I am pretty sure I covered the "why" in the tho answers.

My choice of race shall be Midland Hyur. With the amount of diversity offered by the Armoury System I will likely be trying them all until I find that niche that fits my play style, but at first glance the Thaumaturge seems to hold a lot of appeal. I enjoy the role of damage dealer the most and like the ability to play from a distance to keep all aspects of the fight within view. Gridania seems the most appealing of the starting locations to me. It sounds like a stunning landscape and seems to offer a lot of the crafting options that I am the most interested in.

My character will be an Elezen Archer (Male) since my character in FFXI was an Elvaan RNG and I really enjoyed playing the class. As far the starting city goes, I'll be picking Gridania.

Why?

Being an Elezen Archer in a forested area just makes sense to me.

Starting in Gridania with a Lalafell Conjuror. Going conjuror all the way! I loved how appealing it's elemental magic is and Lalafell are the smallest amazing characters in the game.. I can't wait to feel and see the stunning landscape through the eyes of a Lalafell... Just got done upgrading my PC for this!

Sojo out!

What will my first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will I start in and why?

My first character will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te Gladiator starting off in Gridania.

Main reason for my choices, is that I will be duo'ing for the most part with my Lalafell conjurer friend, and being that the conjurer's guild is in Gridania, makes it a good starting chioce. We will go Tank/Healer duo for now and see what happens after. The reason for choosing Miqo'te is because I played as a hume in XI and I want to have something different but I don't like Roegadyns, and like I said my friend is already doing the Lalafell.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Seeker of the sun Miqo'te pugilist, the reason why is i played a mithra for 5 years in FFXI and i couldnt see myself playing any other race as my main in FFXIV. I chose pugilist because mnk was my favorite job in FFXI, for her hometown girdania is the choice for me because it resembles windurst the best.

After spending a lot of time going back and forth between each of the races except Lalafell I settled on a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te because of I just was drawn to them more, hard to explain in a short block of text. Most likely will be a leatherworker to start out with.

As for starting city I'm set on Gridania, in games the zones I've always liked the most are the nature zones, like the forest island in Riven. Basically anything that mixes "city" and "forest" I'll jump at.

Well I've decided to go with a Sunseeker Miqo'te, Sunseeker because heterochromia is kinda neat... I'll be starting in Gridania, because frankly if I have to start somewhere I'd like it to be nice and green and forest like. For class, well Conjurer seems like something I'd go for because I just like magic stuff, hah, but when it comes down to it I'd like to eventually do a class like WHM or DNC.

My first character for FF14 will be a dunesfolk Lala'fell lancer, as for nation I will go for Ul'dah, reason is because in FF11 I was a tarutaru,they were my favorite race, lancer becuase it's abilities remind me that of FF11's samurai which would make an excellent damage dealer, the nation of choice is Ul'dah since if im not mistaken geographically in Eorza, is in the middle meaning it could simplify travel around the world since its in the middle.

My first character will be a Miqo'te Conjurer starting out in Gridiania. Miqo'te because I'll be playing with my regular gaming partner and we'll most likely RP them as related somehow. Conjurer so that I can do the healing and said partner will do the tanking making groups easy to get. The nation-state I picked just because I like the classic fantasy setting for forests and what to see what this one is like.

I'll be playing a male Wildwood Elezen Archer. I plan on starting out in Gridania. Since I plan on being an archer, I thought that starting off in a wooded area would help me in finding resources for my arrows.

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

My first character will for sure be a Lalafell Conjuror, Their Emotes are cute and i just love how they act. Also because the fact that i have played a "Taru" in FFXIV for over 7years and grew to be attached to my character, the Lalafell make's me feel back at home.

The starting nation-state im going to pick would probably be gridania because i feel it's the best place for a Lalafell and it would feel more like windurst.

Thanks!!!

What will your first character in Eorzea? HellsGaurd Roegadyn - In XI, my Galka was my alter ego. I plan on continuing the history we created.

What will be the nation-state will you start in? Why? Most likely Gridania. Why you ask ? Because of the whole character "out of place" aspect of it. MY original XI Galka character started in Windy(the similarities to Gridania are obvious) and there was a great story I created as to why and this will just further that original concept for me.

Thank You for reading and I hope to hear some good news soon !

CLASS: Marauder

RACE: Hyur Midlander (Male)

CITY: Ul'dah

WHY?:
- To test and find flaws in the beta version of FFXIV
- To discover and report any exploits (e.g. quick gil/exp tricks, etc...)
- To test my new computer system and report FFXIV compatibility issues with newer hardware
- To finally try the game I've been dying to play.

Thanks for reading, please consider my post.

Hello ZAM,

Roedagyn Hellsguard Black Smith: I definitely want to do something completely different. I am going to start out as a black smith but I will create a sort of support class so I hope to gain buffs such as sharpening weapon from blacksmith then tie that along with several other classes. It is really hard to decide because of all the freedom this game has which makes it even harder for me to wait.

I want to start in Gridania. it has an elvish feel which will make a feeling of being out of place for a Hyur or especially a Roedagyn making the gameplay more interesting I think

I've been following this game since announcement and signed up the first day possible but for the PS3 and as the release date was announced for the PS3 my heart broke. Now I just regret signing up for PS3 beta because it was pretty much wasted. All this anticipation just to be let down!!! Of course you guys understand.

THANKS GUYS!

I'm planning on playing Gladiator. The reason being that i like how the armor looks (specially with the larger size shields). I think i'm either going to go with Hume, or the Galka looking one. I was a taru on XI and i think i need a new change of scenery for XIV. I think i'm going to go with Limsa Lominsa. It looks like a great city to start in from everything i've seen.

My first character will be a male Wildwood Elezen (the Duskwight Elezens look too much like night elves). I intend to play a lancer and start in Ul'Dah. My reasons are many. First, you can't deny that those big, tall elezens are just made to hold a lance. A tall character needs a tall weapon, plus I like range but don't want to be an archer or a mage, so lancer seems like the choice. The reason I don't want to be an archer is because it seems too stereotypical of a Wildwood Elezen. Maybe if I were starting in Gridania, it would make sense, but being from Ul'Dah, my character is an Elezen who has abandoned his simplistic roots for the rich and affluent lifestyle associated with people of Ul'Dah (and possibly shamed his family in doing so? See how much more interesting this character is already!)
Another reason I want to be a male Wildwood Elezen is because I always wanted to be a male Elvaan in FFXI, but my friend talked me into being a Mithra because he said I'd be a crappy thief as an Elvaan. Although Mithra were okay, I still always wanted to be an Elvaan, but didn't want to start a new character. Now's my chance!

A mild manner wildwood Elezen working as a carpenter by day in the hot blasted sands of Ul'dah - By night a smuggler and assassin for the "Syndicate."

I always like to try to tie in a little back story with where my characters live. Ul'dah seems to have a lot of potential for some good RP with what we have been given for their back-story.

- My nation will be Gridania simply because I know that I will love the scenery there, knowing Square-Enix they probably made it immensely gorgeous.

My first character will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell. I was a taru in FFXI and I loved that character, I am very excited make a similar character. I think I will either be a lancer or pugilist to try something different. In the past I have always been a magic based class. As for starting city I am leaning towards Gridania because I like the greener cities and it reminds me of Windy.
