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

My first character will likely be an Elezen(M) goldsmith. I will probably start in Ul'Dah.

Why?

I've played an Elvaan(M) for years in FFXI so I figured I'd carry on with tradition :)

I'm starting in Ul'Dah because I like the whole "trading town" vibe.

Hyur blacksmith in Ul'dah.

Because I love crafting and providing something for the player base.

My first character will by a Hyur from Limsa Lominsa. I'll be Hyur because I enjoy playing a variety of roles and human characters have typically filled the "jack of all" niche. I want to start in Limsa Lominsa because of the ocean landscape than I'm sure will be breathtaking.

It will be my tried and true first character in all MMORPGs: a defensive warrior type.
Therefor, in FFXIV, I'll try a Duskwight Elezen Gladiator. Elezen due to my wife's preference for elves or at least nothing human. Roegadyn is quite tempting though, or Lalafell. Love the idea of a pint sized tank.

Nation-state? Depends on who's paying the most!

Seriously though, Ul'dah. If that wasn't obvious from the statement above.

Class/Race: Conjurer, Lalafell

I always play the role of a magic user and Limsa Lominsa looks like the most beautiful area.

I'll play a Lalafell Pugilist with a DoH to repair its weapons.
I'll choose Ul'dah because despite not having much information about it, a trading city appeals to me

My first character will be a Miqo'te Pugilist (Seekers of the Sun)!
The Miqo'te are cute and I like the look of hand weapons!

The nation-state I want to start in is Gridania.
Square Enix does a beautiful job on foliage, and I love the concept of a nation-state built around greenery.
#1864 Aug 05 2010 at 2:56 PM Rating: Decent
My first character will be a Miqo'te pugilist starting out in Ul'dah.
I like the flavor behind the combination; that's a character that would probably have an interesting back story to her.

I'm going to play a Wildwood Elezen, I played Elvaan in FFXI and I liked them the most, feel like I gotta keep up the "Tradition" XD

I am planning on being from Limsa Lominsa, I like the idea of being from an island and the color of the flag reminds me of good ol' sandy!

My first character in Eorzea will be a Midlander Hyur Lancer, probably from the forests of Gridania. I've always liked Final Fantasy's staple dragoon characters and I'd like to make one whose appearance ressembles myself. I believe Gridania is a good place to start as a lancer, since there's the Wood Wailers militia to train me.

I will be Elezen or Hyur and will be starting in Gridania. I was a Elvaan in FFXI so kinda am stuck on the look and would like to look at this game as a continuation of my life in FF. As far as the starting city it really seems to fit my personality.

I am most likely going to start a Highland Hyur Gladiator first. I wanted to start a class that could both tank (for grouping with others) and do some damage so I could solo some. I'll have several friends to play with so me being able to tank will be helpful. I'm leaning the Highland Hyur because I was a Hume in FF11, and I wanted to be a human in FF14. The Midland Hyur were a little too generic for me, so I'm picking the Highland.

I plan on starting in Gridania. I feel drawn to that zone b/c of its forests.

I plan on playing Miqo'te and start in Gridania. When I played FFXI I started as Mithra in Windurst and this seems like a similar combination. I also like cat girls ^,^b

Conjurer

What nation-state will you start in?
Limsa Lominsa

Why?
I'd like to play Conjurer because it is the mage archetype that I always seek in MMOs. I'd like to start in Limsa Lominsa because I imagine it will be similar to Windy from FFXI and an excellent place to have fun ;)

First character I will make is a Dunesfolk Lalafell Lancer in Ul'dah. It sounds like Ul'dah will be an interesting place to be with the gambling halls and arenas. It sounds like it could be fun to play.

Hellsguard Roegadyn Thaumaturge. I enjoy the support nature of the Thaumaturge class, applying essential positive and negative status effects and boosting those around me. As for being a Hellsguard Roegadyn, I've heard that they're more attuned to magic than the Galka in FFXI and this might be a good opportunity for me to play a Galka caster without being gimped.

I will be starting in Ul'dah, as it's the location of the Thaumaturge Guild. I'm hoping there is some advantage to starting near one's job's guild.

Roegadyn (since I'm a beast and my forum name is a perfect for one IMO).
I'll probably start as a marauder. Cause like I said I'm a BEAST!
Hailing from Ul’dah (since I'm a hermit in real life and the Roegadyn from there are reclusive).

My first character will be a Miqo'te of the Keepers of the Moon clan, most likely from
Gridania and most likely an Archer or a Lancer. I wish to start as such a character
because I enjoy the wilderness and want a character who has origins in such an area. I
imagine a character who is at peace with herself and nature and does everything she can
to protect her homeland.

I am going to make a hyur monk that lives in Ishgard.


Why?
I enjoy melee dps classes and I love the idea behind the stance combat that monks appear to be getting being able to switch fighting styles. As for ishgard I think it would go best with the monk.

My First Character will be a duskwight elzen, starting in Gridania. The reason I would be elzen is because I was only hume in FFXI. I would like a different experiece in FFXIV. Gridania seems to be peaceful and it is not a city that is surrounding the beta so it will be new to everyone.

I want to start as an Elezen pugilist in the Wildwood called Akar'ta Ryogi.

Why
Because my friend (Game name undecided)plan to be Brother Elezen hunting down Game Buggs for the protection of the Wildwood, that and a little adventure... little adventure never hurt anyone... much.

Im going to be playing a Duskwight Elezen, simply cause i like the potental lore of being the shuned Elf. People looking down on your race, and u travel through the story becomeing the hero of the story agianst the other race's expectations.
Starting city would be Limsa Lominsa, the idea of just going to the peer and stareing out over the sea, birds diveing down for fish, boats off in the distance. FTW

Miqo'te is what I will be going for, since I played a Mithra in FFXI. Going for Puglist first, as well as a DoH that can repair.
Limsa Lominsa will be my city-state. The marine atmosphere mixed with the Marines vs Pirates appeals to me.

My first character will be a lallafell. In FFXI I started as a taru-taru, loved the character and played the game as a white mage. This time around I think I'm going to try a melee based class to start and begin the game in Limsa Lominsa. Lots I want to explore judging by all the media from the beta test.

Hyur Gladiator in Limsa Lomisa.

I've always enjoyed tanking in MMOs and will likely take on that role in this one as well. I've chosen that starting area because it seems to be very popular, and its usually best to go where everyone else does when a game starts:)

Count me in for the drawing, please!

My first character will be a Plainsfolk Lalafell Marauder. I'm excited to overcompensate, basically. ^_~

I usually play tanks or healers in MMOs, but I've decided to take a break from my norm and try something new! Plus, it seems as though the Marauder has it's fair share of tankability (not a word? it is now!), so I may even get to diversify every now and then with it!

I originally had a mind for starting in Limsa Lominsa, but a good friend of mine is very keen on starting in Gridania. If we won't be able to help each other out with our different nation quest lines from the get-go, my other friends and I have no qualms in choosing Gridania, so that we can all play together from day one! ^_^

Only about 1.5 months left, and I can't wait!

1. Planning to start as a Hyur Gladiator in Ul'dah.
2. I have always enjoyed playing a tanking role in MMOs, and I would like to start in Ul'dah because it would be a fresh experience compared to all that I have already seen of Limsa Lominsa through press releases and such. Also, I am interested in the idea of Ul'dah being a city built around a fortress/citadel in the center, and would like to experience what this desert-kingdom-like nation-state has to offer an aspiring adventurer.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? I will be a Hyur Male Highlander. Pugilist. Played a Mage for 6 years in FFXI, ready for some fisting action. Torn between Limsa and Gridania. Will probably flip a coin. :)

Why? As stated, I played a mage for 6 years in FFXI (BLM and RDM). Want to try out melee. I like the music in Limsa but love the visuals in Gridania. So I will flip a coin on that one. :)
