I'm thinking an Archer Hyur in Limsa-Lominsa. Why? Because that is just the way it has got to be.

I'm going to play a Wildwood Elezen Archer because I love the way they look.

I am going to start in Gridania because the forest seems like it will be beautiful with all the upgraded technology.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
Puglist fo sho' Hyur midlander in Limsa Lominsa!

Why?
Square Enix has a long standing reputation of making great games, and Ive heard so much about the previous online final fantasy, I'm very eager to be a part of the testing phase and to offer advice on ways to better the game. -crosses fingers-

My first character in FXIV is going to be a Hyur Gladiator. I've always been fond of being in a Tank Role as I feel it gives you the oppurtunity to make important possibly battle changing decisions and its always a good feeling to finish a battle knowing you kept the rest of your party out of harms way.

I will be starting in the Nation-state of Limsa Lominsa as a coastal nation very much appeals to me, and I'd like my hometown to be a beautiful place.

first character!
Class : Thaumaturge
Race : Lalafell
Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

I'd be a Lalafell Thaumathurge, mostly because I love tiny little people in MMORPG games, and also in most MMORPG's no one likes being the healer, me on the other hand, It feels like my duty to protect my party by doing what I can at all times.

I'm going to play a Lalafell (They bring back the good old days of playing FFXI as a Taru-Taru .. god I loved the taru dance =) .
As a previous member said, I will also be probably picking Gridania as my starting city because of the similarities with Windust. Just seems right to have a Taru start in that town, vs the others.

For me, I'll be a Roegadyn. In FFXI I loved the Galka Seemed vastly different from the other races and I somewhat liked that, but I also liked the fact that they were the beefy guys. I've always been a physical damage. For the class I'm thinking Lancer, I've loved the "Dragoon" class in all Final Fantasy games all the way back to Kain from Final Fantasy IV.

For the Nation-State, Ul'dah Looks like my kind of area. As Cicidoa Sosodoa (the self-made Lalafell and former Syndicate Member) said "Everyone here is after something-fame, notoriety, power, money. Me? I'll have the whole bloody lot". Seems to sound fine to me. Why bother with a lesser Nnation, getting one or two things when Ul'dah can give me everything I'd ever need?

This class / race pair has always struck me as the essential damage dealer. Gridania Seems to be the most fitting place for an elf to run the forests.

I am going to play a Hyur Gladiator / Thaum / Conjurer hybrid so I can make it as close to a RDM as possible. I will play from Ul'dah.

I really loved red mage in FFXI and all the other Final Fantasy games. I think it will be fun trying to mix and match classes to make one again.

I'm going to be a Roegadyn "Sea Wolf" Gladiator, and probably some Miner and Armorer as well. I've never played a "tank" class before and would really like to try it, it looks like a lot of fun. Being counted on to keep the squishy mages alive can be a lot of responsibility and I'd like to try it. When I first started playing FFXI, I was a Hume mage, and enjoyed it for a while. But I got tired of sitting back casting spells and wanted a character that looked fearsome on the front lines. I made a Galka and I loved it, so I want to make a Roegadyn to continue that feel.

I'm going to start in Limsa Lominsa. Since plan to make a "Sea Wolf" Roegadyn, it's the logical choice. I've always liked seaside towns, too. I liked the feel of it from the benchmark, reminded me of coming up to Aht Urghan for the first time in FFXI which was a fun feeling.

Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te. She'll start off in Limsa Lominsa.

For the character, I typically like the more agile classes in MMOs. Thieves, rangers, etc. What's more fitting for agile class than a catgirl? As for the nation-state, I'm not a fan of cities with a natural setting, so it wouldn't be Gridania. It could have been Ul'dah, but I choose the crafting city in most MMOs I play, so I figured it was time for some variety.

I'll be making a Lallafel Thaumaturgist. I always play the healer/magic character, and I played a Taru in FFXI. I'll start in Ul'dah because it seems like the most interesting place. I'm hoping it will be a bit like the Windurst and the Sarutaburuta Plains in FFXI. :)

My first character would be a Elezen in Limsa Lomisa being a full-time Conjurer. Mage is my favorite class in all MMORPG it lives inside me so I hadn't even a problem to choose class because I know that playing for mage it's good for me and it very very good for my party.

I choosed Limsa Lomisa because it's is realy wonderful town! Good job square enix!

I've been dying to get into the FF XIV alpha/beta since the game was announced last year. I played FF XI for almost five years and after finally quitting for good I was craving a new MMO, the FF XIV announcement blew my socks off. I've never beta tested before but I understand that this opportunity is not just to play an early build of the game but to assist in the process of ensuring the product is as complete and ready for retail as possible. I'd love to have that feeling of participation as I plan to play the game extensively upon release.

My plan would be to start in Gridania as we've seen so much of Limsa in all of the alpha/beta impressions and photographs, I'd like to see something new. There's a glimpse of the forest in the E3 video that caught my eye and I'd love to see what it's all about.

As for race and job, those are both easy questions. I've been enamored with the Dragoon job since FFIV so Lancer is the easy choice. I also have a hard time putting so much time and effort into an avatar that doesn't resemble me so Hyur Midlander Male all the way.

I guess I just want to join the beta because I've been paying such close attention the status of this game since announcement that I want to see what it's all about. I'm intrigued by the new battle system, I'm in love with the look and feel of the game world and I'm dying to start adventuring in the land of Hydaelyn.

I'll go Miqo’te Seeker of the Sun. I'll start out with mostly just trade skills (fisher, for starters) just for a break from the normal MMO experience. As for city, Limsa Lominsa looks the prettiest.

My character will be a Roegadyn Hellsguard because I played a Galka in FFXI. I imagine Roegadyns will be a minority in this game like Galkas were and I like being different than others. I will start in Ul'Dah because people will know a lot about Limsa Lominsa and I want to experience something new. It also seems more interesting than Gridania.

Hi! I'm picking the Miqo'te (Keepers of the Moon) because they seem like a race that is in the middle of all the other races. I like the more agile-looking races and they have a cool look about them as well as an interesting storyline. The nation-state would be Gridania since I felt that the Miqo'te looks like they would be from an area that has forest-like and wild atmosphere.

I can't wait!

Will be a Lalafell and my class will be between Archer, Conjurer and Thaumaturge.

My starting city i am pushing towards Gridania.




Why?

In Final Fantasy XI i was a HUME my whole FFXI career, Every other game i have always been a short race of some sort if there was the choice. I plan on continuing that plan and being short as well as going with Support classes of some sort. Archer would be the possibility if i wanted to focus towards just damage.

The reason i chose Gridania is because in FFXI, my whole career i was Sand'Oria and i never changed nations once unfortunately. So i would like to see what it is like in other nation types and not be stuck in a castle once again.

I'll be a Miqo'te 'Seekers of the Sun' Archer/Lancer starting in Gridania. Why? because i was always a HUGE fan of the Amazon class in Diablo 2 and I want to see how closely i can recreate the far/mid range hybrd in FFXIV. Starting in Gridania for the love of the forest and for hunting and trapping to be a Leatherworker.

My character will probably be a Lalafell Plainsfolk Alchemist based out of Gridania. I knew I wanted to play an alchemist as I enjoyed the craft in XI, and the description mentions it draws from Lalafellan and Mi'qote knowledge, so a Lalafell seemed like a good idea. Even though it hasn't been said yet where alchemists will be centered, I have to guess that it'll be from Gridania, the description of Alchemy makes it sound like it will be more naturist than the industrial theme in XI.

I'm going to start in Limsa Lominsa, because we already know so much about it. It will feel comfortable right away and I love the coastal look anyway.

Good luck everyone!

Here we go!

My first character will be a Hyur (Gladiator, maybe), and I'll start in Limsa Lominsa. Why? Simply because I like it when my character looks like me, I feel like I'm the one wandering around the world, fighting giant monsters, completing epic quests! I chosed Limsa Lominsa for the feel it gives. Complete freedom! The fact that ourlaws hide there show that it's a place where there's no rules, and that's why I love playing video games: you can escape from the restrictions you have to deal with IRL.

That's it ;).

I will probably create a Hyur because I've never played a Final Fantasy online game before and they, as human-like, would be what I'm most familiar with. I'm leaning Midland Hyur.

I will make the character in Gridana because it is the most visually appealing to me and I truly love nature-based cities and towns.

The first character I'm going to play will be a Lancer Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te; I'm looking to break my traditional MMO archetype of a big axe-wielding guy (male Elvaan warrior in FFXI & Tauren warrior in WoW).

The nation-state I want to hail from is Limsa Lominsa, it seems like it will be the most breathtaking, adventurous city.

My character will be Elezen of the Wildwood Clan. The City-State I will represent is Ul'dah. The reason behind both of these decisions is Elezens are by far the most anticipating race for me to play as, and Ul'dah looks like a mighty fortress which always is appealing to me.

My first character will be a Male Wildwood Elezen. I will probably start out with either archer or Gladiator and in Gridania as it seems to fit better with my perception of the wildwood elezen.
Why I want to start out with either archer or gladiator is because I can decide if I would like to go the path of a ranged damage class with the archer, or to gain the proper skills with my Gladiator to best emulate those of a Paladin which is my favorite class.
