What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
I plan to join Eorzea as a Miqo'te Keeper of the moon, Conjurer, with some interest in cooking and fishing.
As for my state I will pick Gradania.
I have always play a mage role in final fantasy games, so having Gradania, which is pretty much a reincarnation of windurst, in FFXIV as my nation of choice is natural. besides I love trees and I'm curious to see what they can do with forest/jungle- like environment of Gradania.
As for why would I play as a Miqo'te. I will be roleplaying inside of FFXIV, and I had decided to play as eider a female or male Miqo'te, but due to the severe lack of male Miqo'te at release date, I will just stick to the good old female Miqo'te.
