What will your first character in Eorzea be?
Archer or of the Land - Elezen

what nation-state will you start in?
Gridania

Why?
I would like to get some pre-release game knowledge and testing in. Also I would like to know if my system will run the game smoothly or if I need to do some upgrading before release.

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

After the recent news about the ability to change spells from single target to area effect, much like earlier Final Fantasy series magic, I've made up my mind to be a Conjurer to start. The ability to change magic from single to multiple sounds exciting for a class that seems to be a master of all elements, including healing.

As far a race and homeland, I'll be a Dunesfolk Lalafell starting in Gridania, because Limsa Lominsa seems to have been beaten into the ground with media, and starting in the desert does not appeal to me. The images of the big cities and buildings nestled into the trees is amazing.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
A male Duskwight Elezen Pugilist that will start in Limsa-Lominsa city-state

Why?

I want to create an Elezen to relate to my FFXI character while being Duskwight as to assist with being a Pugilist. Pugilist looks like a fun Discipline to play in a party with. I would like to start in Limsa-Lominsa as this is on the sea and I would like to be close to the port.

Class - Marauder

Race - Duskwight Elezen

City - Limsa-Lominsa

I have been playing FFXI For 4 to 5 years, I would like to be able to help finalize the game, and be a part of it. I am pre-ordering the game on PC, and will also be picking up a PS3 copy.

I will start a Miqo'te (Seekers of the Sun) Pugilist from Limsa Lominsa.

She will be the re-creation of my mithra monk from Bastok, Lianda. Basically an homage to my longest-played FFXI character.

She will most likely be used to get a feel of the game, the system and such.

After that, it's free for all. I have ideas for lots of different characters, and I will experiment with the character creator until I find something I really like.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Lalafell by the name of Pip. He will begin his journey in Gridania, because the large expanse of bushes make for excellent hiding places to hide from predetor Roegadyn.

My first character in Eorzea will be a female Dunesfolk Lalafell, I absolutely love their coloration and I think they have the most personality. I have always been a caster at heart, so I believe I will start out as a Thaumaturge (and likely try the Conjurer as well at some point), but I also plan to try the Lancer out as well since my Husband and I play as a duo. I want a class that will be a blast to solo, and also a support/dps role like the Thaumaturge to be able to group with full time. I do hope to see more casters be released in the long run :) I will be starting out in Gridania for sure! The misty shadowed forest is SO BEAUTIFUL and I cannot wait to see if for myself.

I plan on making a Hyur pugilist because I enjoyed playing a Hume monk in Final Fantasy XI, it was by far my favorite class. I plan on picking midland Hyur because of the nostalgia of using another human character. I will also start in Limsa Lominsa because I really like water and port cities.

I will be a Miqou'te Botanist and I will be starting off in Gridania,

why? Well I want to experience the gathering classes in this game, and what better way than to start as a Botanist, and what better city to start in than the gathering captial Gridania. I figure Limsa Lominsa isn't for me as a gathering job, and Ul'dah is too much a fighting city according to lore.

I would play as a Path of the Figther, Hyuran Ive always liked the look of a Classic Knight type of Appearance and such , and this looks like it could be it. I love FF and i havent played much of the first MMo and i really want to get into the new one.

Hello!

My character name will be Sariae, last name undecided at this time. I plan on starting off in Gridania because the starting video is based in Lominsa and I would like to see a different place. Also, I think that perhaps a Mi'Quote may be more at home there!

My first character would be a Wildwood Elezen Archer and I would live in Gridania :)

In my opinion, Ranger was by far the funnest job in Final Fantasy XI, so I would like to continue using the trusty Bow and Arrow. In the main sites description of Wildwood Elezen it states that they excel at arching. This, paired along with the fact that I played as an Elvaan in FFXI (and that they look badass) are the main reasons for my choice.

As for Gridania, just look at the concept art! It looks so peaceful and beautiful. Ive always loved forested areas... I fell in love with it the second I saw the concept art. I'm picturing myself crafting arrows out of the lovely forest as I type!

Maybe choice a Male Lalafell,born in Gridania.

Why?

In Gridania,I guess that a place for Archer's convenience.
There are so many tree could be arrow.
SO,Archer wouldn't afraid of arrow be done.

I will most likely be a Hyur Disciple of the Land (dunno which one yet, will prolly be a game time decision).

and to be totally original I will try to shove off form Limsa Lominsa mainly becasue it will be the most familiar spot.

Aeyvi is a Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) botanist with pale green hair. She has pugilist leanings and a taste for alchemy. She could never settle on just one living.
Her starter city is Gridania, although her origins are somewhat a mystery (even to herself). She fell in love with all things green in this thriving forest city.

After reading extensively about previous and current FF plots, after marveling the minute detail put into every aspect of this new version... I have long awaited the chance to play it, experience this new world. I am captivated. Please allow me the chance to see it close-up.

I would play a Miqo'te Keeper of the Moon and try and go for a hybrid build in an attempt to create a redmage like character (The seekers of the sun have funky eyes which creep me out). I would join the Limsa Lominsa because the faction appeals to my pirate sense.

My first character in Eorzea will be a male Lalafell and I hope to start in Gridania.

Why?

My reason for picking a Lalafell is because I played a taru in FF11 and I enjoyed playing as one and as for starting in Grindaia, I think it will be a cool city to first see when I enter Eorzea.

I will play as an Miqo'te Archer.

Miqo'te because I like how Mithras look in FFXIV and I played as a Taru in FFXI. I want to try something new.

Archer because I think Archers/Rangers are neat! I liked Ranger in FFXI. Too bad I never got Ranger up high enough before I quited FFXI, after 6 years playing. Pretty much that's why I wanna play Archer in FFXIV.

Gridania because I always liked being in Windurst in FFXI, the music, the atmosphere. And I hope Gridania will be the 'new' Windurst!

I will be a Dunesfolk Lalafell, with my class being either a Conjurer or a Thaumaturge. I haven't decided which yet, because both look amazing. I will probably start in Limsa Lominsa, because I am not a stereotypical elf and because I hate the desert (It is a bad place, and I hate it. HATE it.).
#1783 Aug 05 2010 at 12:17 PM Rating: Good
I'm going to be a Lalafell. I'm thinking of Dunesfolk and I hope we get to pick their eye colors as well with the Charater Creation.

I want to try all the different nation's story lines so I hope (although I can't imagine they wouldn't) we can change nations like in 11. As I have to start in one I would start in Gridania. This is the most eye pleasing of the 3 so far but I want to check out EVEYTHING!

- I will play a Roegadyn Seawolf to carry on the legacy of my Final Fantasy 11 "Galka".

What nation-state will you start in?
-The city of Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
-The Roegadyn race has the appeal of being the brute force on the battlefield. The large size of the race also has its
amusements, making for hours of fun when grouping up with anything smaller than you (Everything :D).

The landscape of Limsa Lominsa is very attractive and is the perfect starting place for a seabourne nation-state. I
love the idea of the city connecting various small islands by the many bridges and the environment looks fantastic.

I will probably play a Hyur Conjurer starting in Ul'dah, mainly because I've specialized in mage classes in FFXI and, while all three cities look amazing and interesting, Ul'dah's environment is most appealing to me.

Roegadyn Lancer/Culinarian in Limsa Lominsa, because I like the look of the larger characters and I love polearm classes/jobs =P. I am choosing Culinarian, because I've never tried food crafting to a big degree in any MMO - besides us big guys needs to eat! I chose Limsa Lominsa because I like the feel of cities with harbors and shipyards etc.

Roegadyn Conjurer. That is unless there turns out to be mp/int disadvantages on release as was in FFXI. In that case I'll be a Marauder. I played a Galka in FFXI, mainly as Samurai then Black Mage. I like the rarity of our breed, I can only assume it will be the same here. Starting city will probably be Limsa Lominsa, due to it being the most seen/talked about city it will probably be the busiest place on release. Good place to meet people.

the reason why is that i like to play as a taru in final fantasy 11 and this race remembers me of that race.
the reason i pick Gridania is that it remainds me of windurst in final fantasy 11.

I will be starting off as a Elezen, will probably start off as a Conjurer and then move on to Gladiator and mix and match the skills. I will be starting in Gridania, it seems to be the more logical place to start off with for the Elezen, seeing as how they are woodland people.

I'll be playing a Elezen, because they essentially seem to be like the Elven of FFXI, and I played that there. I liked the race. I choose Conjurer for the healing power it will seem to posses (I need this to go along with my Gladiator). I choose Gladiator for the tanking ability it will seem to have. I've always loved sword and shield. I will mix the healing (Cure) from Conjurer with the tanking ability of Gladiator and have a type of Paladin.

Will also take up the role of Fisher. I love fishing in every game I play. It helps pass the time and is an enjoyable side track from the daily grind of the game.

Edit: Added some things and corrected some others.

I will be making a Lalafell Gladiator and start in Gridania.

I played a Taru taru in FFXI and loved it. You felt small but at the same time very powerful, in a huge world. I want that same feeling again. I'll be starting in Gridania because I read that its very green and lush, It sounds like a secure and mystical place to base my adventures from.

Elezen! And most likely gladiator cause I prefer melee classes! I played hume on FFXI for 7(?) years or so... So it's time for a change! And I find short characters get shafted on view angles in boss fights, unfortunetly, so I cannot deal with that issue considering the amount of end gaming I do in MMOs.

As for the nation: I'm going to randomly choose unless they plan to give item(s) for picking your races specific nation... (As they did in FFXI).

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

Race will be Miqo'te for sure. I'd feel totally out of place if I wasn't a Mithra. Undecided on clan and name so far.

For my class I am going to try to make a support class. Something akin to bard/white mage, with a bit more of a focus on healing. If alchemist can be used in battle, that will probly be my main. I've always wanted alchemist to be a job in FFXI. If not, then conjurer seems to be the way to go.

I will be starting in either Limsa Lominsa or Gridania. I loved Jeuno and have always been a big fan of port cities, so Limsa Lominsa is kind of a shoe in. Gridania intrests me because of my Windurstian roots. It looks a little too overly foresty though for my tastes. Going to have to wait for more screenshots before choosing.

Thank you so more for a chance to enter the beta. Good luck to everybody.
