- Hyur Female

- Limsa Lominsa

- Fisher! & Everything else eventually Smiley: grin

I played FFXI for about 6-7 years on and off, and my release from all the grinding and drama was fishing, I hope there is some sense of relaxation with it even as it becomes a full fledged class, rather than a side craft.

What I really hope for is in battle, some kind of ability that lets me smack a mob upside the head with the pole itself. WHAP!

First Character:

Miqo'te Pugilist

Where:

Gridania

Why:

First of all, who can resist a kitty boxer? Not I. I also choose to start in Girdania because it was stated that this nation-state is one of the preeminent leatherworking states. As my character will likely be wearing said leather, it would be helpful to be close to the source.
#1804 Aug 05 2010 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
class-
Marauder

Race-
Hyur male!

starting city-
Limsa Lominsa.


I'm choosing to play as a Hyur since I used to be a Hume in FFXI. Limsa Lominsa looks like it's a beautiful city, that's the only reason I choose it LOL! And the Marauder class just seems awesome.

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

I will be a Roegadyn Hellsguard and start in the nation-sate of Ul'dah. I start here because sprawling deserts seem fascinating to me.

My First character will be a Lalafell Full time Blacksmith, and starting at Limsa Lomisa.

I love the idea of being a supporting role and sometime my skills might be very useful while in battle. Making extra money along the way is always good.

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

I am going to be a Lalafell Gladiator, I always thought it was funny to see Tarus in heavy armor in FFXI. I was a Taru throughout my 4 year FFXI career ans Lalafells are very close in model. I am going to pick Gridania because i like the grassy woods feel to it...


I picked Lalafell Gladiator, because it Brings back a lot of great memories from FFXI and i hope to grow a bond with the character like i did with FFXI.


Thank you for the opportunity.

My first character will be a Lalafell Thaumaturge starting in Ul'dah.

Why?

I like the idea of the Ul'dah nation state more than the others because it feels like it will have more character and life than the other cities. As far as character the Lalafell is fairly unique and I really like the idea of being of small stature in such a grand environment. Also the Thaumaturge provides many unique abilities which seem to supplement many other classes and I think they will be in short supply when the game launches.

My first character will be a Lalafell Archer! I will more than likely take up Woodworking also can I can make my own arrows too. I loved playing ranged classes since I could remember and the way FFXIV looks to be, I can do so while combining all new elements to provide a whole new gameplay style!

And I will be starting in Limsa Lominsa because the City looks beautiful in all the screenshots! Im curious as to why its the city on the water. Im interested to know the lore behind the cities origins.

I am going to play as Miqo'te (Keepers of the Moon) because they are a well balance race, hopefully like FFXI and have high dexterity/agility for Disciples of War, but still have average magic and intelligence for Disciples of Magic.

I will start off in Gridania as it seems the most suitable nation for the Miqo’te, for a race that offers their piety to Goddess’ of the Sun/Moon, a nation that has dense woodlands/rivers, and is guided on the will of the forest’s elements, there can be no better home nation!

i plan to start as a Miqo'te in Gridania, u didnt ask but i will be a pugilist and will do woodworking and will go out with my hatchet and collect my own wood, exactly like i did in FFXI. i havent stoped playing it ever since i started 4 years ago and will probably play both until this game proves itself... so far no complaints, but i really can't say anything until i get to go hands on.

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

- For sure HYUR for me. (like FFXI it has pretty balanced stats allowing me to decently take up many roles)
- But my main role will be the Disciple of War's GLADIATOR. (Paladin was my main in FFXI. Love it!)
- And I will start out in LIMSA LOMINSA. (Mainly because it reminds me of Jeuno from FFXI but has a Bastok feel to it and Bastok was my nation in FFXI. Also, from the beta videos/screenshots flooding the internet I love the music and feel of Limsa Lominsa)

Thanks for an opportunity to join the Beta guys! =)

My first character in Eorzea will be a female Lalafell Dunesfolk because Lalafell have just the right size body of someone who in my opinion is called a "mage". That & I like small cute things.

As for the starting city it would have to be Gridania because it looks quiet, peaceful, and it reminds me of Windhurst from FFXI.

A humble Duskwight Elezen Pugilist named Graywave learning the ropes of hand-to-hand combat and crafting in Limsa Lominsa.
Why? I love martial arts, I practice them daily myself, and the traditional elven forest-city vibe has always intrigued me.

My first character will be a Lallafell Conjurer from the nation state of Gridania. I am a dedicated Taru lover from FF11 and just can't wait to get my hands on the Lallafells! I will pick a Conjurer as my profession since I love to play as a support role to help my friends and teammates.
#1823 Aug 05 2010 at 1:59 PM Rating: Decent
My first and probably only character I will create in FF XIV will definitely be a Lalafell, starting in Gridania. I will choose this because both race and starting place remind me of the reason I was so addicted to Final Fantasy XI (TaruTaru and Windhurst) the cuteness and versatility of the little dudes and the natural beauty of the hometown. I look forward to the time I will invest in this game greatly.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Hyur Fisherman. I always loved crafting in FFXI and now that I can do it and also raise my physical rank by doing it sounds wonderful to me. As to where I'll be starting, I want to say Gridania because it looks beautiful but I might end up in Limsa Lominsa since there is a Fisherman guild there =D

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

I think with XIV I will try out a Miqo'te Conjurer from Gridania.

Why?

In FFXI I played a bald Hume M RDM from Bastok, and though we have had Cid the landscape was so bland and lifeless that I never really enjoyed my home state. When ever I was just chilling waiting for a group, I would almost always head out to the Sanctuary of Zi'tah or most often Kazham and explore it and the jungles around it. It always had me fascinated and became my home away from home.

In WoW I play a NE Female druid and couldn't be happy just chilling in cat form in Darnassus. In FFXIV I plan to take my furry little self and live in the forests once again, finding my inner Buddah as it were.

My first character I plan to make in Eorzea is a male lalafell and I hope to start in Gridania.

I can't say why, exactly, the Lalafell appeal to me, but they really just strike somewhere within me that feels... right.

As far as starting in Gridania, it strikes me as a place my character would really enjoy the beginning of his quest.

I'll probably be a Duskwight Elezen Pugilist to honor my character from XI that I miss... Plus, I love spelunking (former owner of a Spelunker's Hat :p )

I'll also honor my old character by choosing Gridania... By the description, it seems nice and woodland-y, kind of like my Jugner Forest Hide-out :)

I will be a Hume Gladiator for the sole purpose or being a tank, tanking is by far my favorite kind of character to play in any game and that wont change in FF14 :)

I will start in ul'dah because it looks the most interesting to me and the most fun to play.

Limsa Lomisa - I figure a port city would be the best place to start fishing.

When I'm able to get into the game, I'm planning on playing a fisherman and cook. The idea that I'll be able to progress in this game without having to combat, purely help other players and have some fun creating and roleplaying, is really appealing to me.

As far as race, Lalafell, of course! The Lalafell are what gnomes should be in all other games! Finally, a game company that really gets me. *grin*

For starting city, I'd like to hit Limsa Lominsa. I know some people have complained that it's too blue, but I love the seaside theme. It's really nice!

Thanks!!

*fingers crossed*

Wildwood Elezen
Limsa Lominsa - Though it seems more natural to put an elf in a forest home, I intend to pursue crafting and this starting city seems to be the most likely to harbor a blacksmith guild.

My first character will be a Hyur starting in Ul'dah. This time around I was thinking of creating an avatar in my likeness and I consider myself from a wealthy desert like city so it seems amusingly appropriate.

Miqo'te Lancer starting off in Gridania. I've always had a unique interest in the lance wielding dragoon-like classes in the Final Fantasy series and I feel the Miqo'te's agile appearance and animations work well in personifying that image. I also want to experience a starting area other than Limsa Lominsa since it has been saturated through official screenshots and beta testing, and a forest appeals to me more than a desert setting.

Miqo'te Conjurer probably. If not, then if they have something like a Red Mage, I'd try that too.

I'd try it for no other reason than it seems interesting to play as.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? A Midland Hyur! I am defiantly going to be a Gladiator. Starting in Ul'dah.

Why? Nothing feels better than being in the heart of a battle. Right up close in the action. Wielding a big two hand weapon and showing the bosses who's the boss.


I can't wait to see all the new locations and lore, and to provide logs of bugs and glitches so that we can have as close to perfect release as we can get. Thanks for your time.

My first character will be

Class : Conjurer

Race : Highland Hyur

Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

My race was chosen because I enjoy a rustic looking toon and tend to lean towards larger ones. I picked a Conjurer because I'm a caster player and it looks like a very fun class. I enjoy casting nukes and watching big pretty numbers. Limsa because it appears to be a port town and I love the ocean and look of it. I am looking forward to the level of detail Square Enix is known for in all of the games they play.
