What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
My first character will be a Lalafell Dunesfolk, Lancer
and I'll start in Limsa Lominsa
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)! Edited, Aug 5th 2010 6:58am by Dirtymix
