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

I will be playing a Lalafel. Conjuror, and starting in Limsa Lominsa. While I've played many classes and races in various MMOs, the Lalafell seem to appeal to my Final Fantasy side. As for Limsa Lominsa, it looks so majestic and I can't wait to explore all of its nooks and crannies.

I'll be going with a Wildwood Elzen starting in Gridanian

Why?

Picking Elzen because in FFXI I was an Elvaan. Far too strong of an attachment to my previous character.

As for Gridanian, I do like the setting of the place, but mainly because of all the wave of alpha/beta information, I just can't stand looking at Limsa Lominsa any more. :P

I would make a Lalafell Conjurer and start in U'ldah(sp).

Why ? Because I screwed up in FF XI and didn't choose a Taru when I wanted to be a mage.

Won't fail twice !

I will be a Elezen archer and will probably start in Gridania. WHy? because I love the archer class in other games and the class sounds like it will be extremly fun to play.

I plan on Having 3 characters.

#1 Hyur Pugilist. I will start in Limsa Lominsa. I am hoping that the the firearms guild will be located there.

As for the other two characters I am undecided on what races or classes they will be. But I will end up with one character in each starting city.

Midland Hyur - Pugilist at first, starting in Ul'Dah.

My first magical days in FFXI were playing a Hume from Bastok, this seems to be the best fit for me. I would normally go mage, but I've been enjoying the dual-wielding classes in some other games.

My first character will be a Hyur Marauder. I will be starting in the Ul'dah nation-state.

I chose these because I like the look of the Hyur and the idea of a Highland Hyur being a mercenary. I'll chose to start in the Ul'dah nation-state to fit with the mercenary flavor of my character since it is known for the arena fighting and gambling halls.

I will pick an Elezen Marauder because they look like awesome knight type people. I will start out in Limsa Lominsa because it looks like a kingdom type place and I think it would go perfect with my Elezen character!

I am looking forward to becoming a Duskwight Elezen mainly because they are similar to dark elves and ive always been an Elvaan before in FF11. I will be starting off in Gridania since its location is in a forest which seems like a natural place for an Elezen to start off at.

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

Plainsfollk Lalafell, almost certainly, with conjurer as my first job. I was a Tarutaru for more than six years and I'm still not tired of /panic. What can I say? I'm addicted to cuteness. And conjurer since that's the most magey-type job and I likes me some magic.

Starting in Gridania. In XI I was Bastokan by birth, but fell in love with Windurst from the moment I stepped into it. I imagine Gridania will be just as beautiful, if not more so.

On another note... it looks like I haven't updated by Allakhazam character profile since 2007. >.>;;

My character will be a Miqo'te (Probably Keeper of the Moon, but I haven't decided on that fully yet) starting in Gridania because I'm a bit of a forestry tree hugger type and I guess as a rather fiesty woman in real life the whole cat woman thing calls to my nature. I'll probably start with the Conjurer class because I've always had a knack for a main healer position (though whether or not they serve that purpose is much debated) and if they don't serve that role they at least sound like there will be a need to multitask a great deal with them.

I will be playing a Lalafell (Dunesfolk)as some ranged class [undecided] starting in Gridania, Choosing the Lalafell because they remind me of the Lilties from Crystal Chronicles, and I LOVED those little buggers! I am choosing Gridania because I am a sucker for woodland territories, I bet it will look GORGEOUS!

Why: Because I love tarutaru. I like pugilist because it seems like a fun class. I like the city of Gridania because it reminds me of windurst.

My first character will be a Miquo'te Pugilist and I will start in Limsa-Lominsa. I want to play a Pugilist because it looks to be a hand2hand monk type class which I favor greatly in games(like DDO), I picked Miquo'te as the race because it is the most appealing to me, and I pick Limsa-Lominsa because sea-based/port cities in games and books are my favorite types of places.

The first character i plan on being will be Elezen, because they are like the Elvaan race my character was in FFXI.

The class Im going to be is a Lancer because they are different from the tank classes I usually play in other MMOs.

The city I plan on joining will be Gridania, because of the atmosphere the concept art for it gives off.

My first character in Eorzea will be an Elezen Marauder, starting off in Ul'dah. Reason being is that I like the way the Elezen look, Marauder looks like it'll be a great class, differing from the usual axe-wieldy classes, and Ul'dah sounds like an interesting environment to start off in.

First character would be a Lalafell Dunesfolk blacksmith and would start in Ul’dah.

Why?
  • Why Lalafell? So cute…
  • Why Ul’dah? Where better to start a dunesfolk than in a desert.

I'm going to start with a Miqo'te Lancer in Limsa Lominsa (hopefully my old ls friends from ffxi pick this one). The Lancer class is interesting because it's like a thief and a dark knight with range and it makes me miss my old character from ffxi (who was also a drk/thf). And Limsa Lominsa just looks amazing so I want to go to there.

Hyur highlander
Ul'dah

Why?

I want the story in FFxiv to feel real to me, or at least as real as it can get. Going into the game as a regular joe, and coming out as a kick'@# melee character is probably the reason why I would go with a hyur first. Plus, I want the armor/weapons/etc to show well. As far as Ul'dah, it's still mysterious to me. Limsa and Gridania I kinda understand already.

Race: Elezen

Class: Marauder

City: Ul'Dah

Coming from playing ffxi, I wanted to stay as an elf-like character, so thats why I picked Elezen.

Choosing a starting class was tough for me, and I still may change my mind when it comes down to it. I always play melee, so the disciples of magic were out of the question. It is a tough choice between pugilist and marauder. Pugilist because I like evasive kind of classes, and marauder because I like damage.
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but are sub-jobs likely to become a part of the job system like in ffxi? Because I think that is one thing that influenced my decision in picking Marauder, it seems like a good starting point for a melee oriented character.

As for the nation-state; I almost chose Limsa Lominsa as my starting city, because it reminded me a little of Bastok, but Ul'Dah seems too interesting.

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.

Quote:
Why?


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.

Class : Conjurer
Race : Lalafell
Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

I loved tarutaru in FFXI and played as a summoner. I'm a bit upset summoner won't be there at release, but what can you do! I just really like spell casting, especially because taru's had that extra bonus. I debated ranger as I enjoyed playing that in FFXI as well, but decided against it. I chose the city because it just looks amazing. Anyways, great contest, hope to get in :)

I plan on picking an male Elezen Archer with a possible dabble in Conjurer(for added support). Mostly Archer though. I really would like to start off in Limsa Lominsa for no reason other than blue is a really calming color for me and there seems to be no lack of it there. Would be a nice change of pace from the ridiculous amounts of brown and gray I saw in FFXI around Gustaberg. Ugh...

Miqo'te (Keeper of the Moon) Lancer starting in Gridania.

From the concept art, Gridania looks like the kind of mysterious place that my nocturnal Miqo'te would fit into nicely. I'm picking Miqo'te because I play a Mithra in FFXI, and I'll give Lancer some love since I haven't taken the Dragoon job very far.

I want to play an Elezen Marauder starting in Limsa Lominsa. So far from what I've been able to find out, the marauder discipline seems the most interesting to me. I chose Elezen for their similarity to the Elvaan. I also like the scale of Limsa Lominsa so it will be my starting choice.

Thanks for the opportunity to get a beta invite.

My character will be a Roegadyn Pugilist.

Starting nation will be Limsa Lominsa.

Was a Galka Monk in FFXI and will continue the tradition with XIV. Being a large brute that pounds things with its fists appeals to me, hehe. Limsa Lominsa because I will be playing a Sea Wolf, so I figured it would seem natural to come from there.
