I want to be a Lalafell Conjurer because it is what I sort of played in ffxi and it was loads of fun to play that type of a character.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
Miqo'te. Not sure yet on Moon or Sun.
Nation-state will be Gridania.

Why?
I played as Mithra in FFXI and prefer playing races/characters that portray agile predators that rely on speed and subtlety. And they're really cute.
According to the description, Ul'dah sounds like the perfect birthplace for my character growing up in the arenas as a gladiator.

1. My first character will be a male Pugilist Dunesfolk Lalafell from Gridania.

2. I am choosing a male Lalafell because it is the race that resembles Tarutaru from FFXI the most which was almost my race of choice. A pugilist because it is currently the class that resembles Thief (from FFXI) the most so far. And the reason I chose a Dunesfolk Lalafell because it seems the be the race category that seems to better suit my class choice and personal playstyle. I chose Gridania as my starting city as again, it seems to be the city that will resembles Windurst (from FFXI) the most. What I'm trying to say is that I am trying to stay true to FFXI roots.

I'll be playing a Hellsguard Roegadyn Marauder, in the nation-state of Ul'dah.

I chose this combo because just the thought of a massive war-ready Marauder starting off in a trading city within a desert got me really excited to start playing, although I currently can't.

Miqo’te : Keepers of the Moon.
Nation-State: Gridania
Class: Archer / Lancer / Culinarian Combination.

The idea behind my character is to live a life defending the forests and being able to survive long enough to atone for several sins. The above combination's were as close as I could think to make a fighter who lived off the land and shunned from civilization. I chose this class based on a character I had written several years ago and kept expanding on. I believe this game may be able to bring to life and action the words floating in my head and through several spiral notebooks. I plan to take my stories and spin off another world keeping a blog of exploits, talents, achievements, and learning curves. I know all things end, especially Beta, and when the game comes out and there are major changes that result in me creating another character different from above, I can still use the time in here as a parental figure guiding my new character.

If I do not get selected to enter Beta I understand, it only means when the full version comes out I will be more exited to enter a new world.

Question 1: A Miqo'te in Gridania. My plan is to be a Lancer and a Conjurer, because I am secretly hoping we will encounter and acquire Garuda from FFXI as a summon in XIV. Dem Thighs~ so delicious. :3

Question 2: Because I can. :3 (That, and I think Gridania won't be getting as much love as Limsa and Ul'Dah.)

I plan on being a Hyur Midlander in Ul'Dah. My class will be Lancer. I foresee the lancer being the most strategic of all the classes, therefore become a vital role in fights. This will be important because I plan on starting a group to brave the Fighting Arenas.

My first character would be a Male Duskwight Elezen Conjurer. My starting zone would be Limsa Lominsa.

The Elezen seems like the race for me since I prefer a character who is somewhat taller than hyur but not as big as a roegadyn. Duskwight sounds like the ideal clan since i prefer dark areas as opposed to forests. A conjurer suits my playstyle with the defensive magic and Limsa Lominsa because I would prefer a portlike city compared to the other cities.

Originally I was considering treading some new waters and selecting a different race. However, upon seeing the dark skin options for the Keepers of the Moon, I have to say I'll be siding with the cat ladies once again - Miqo'te Conjurer for me.

She'll be starting in either Ul'dah or Gridania, as the themes of both sound appealing. Undecided until we get to see how they look in-game.

My name will be Shay Felidae, a Miqo'te Sunseeker from Gridania. I chose Gridania because I love how the gothic architecture appears to be nestled deep in the forests. The atmosphere should be both enchanting and impressive.

-Shay

PS- My professions will be Miner, Blacksmith, and Archer if all goes well.

My first character will be a Conjurer ~ Hellsguard, starting in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?

Because I like fire... and pirates.Rawr.

I want to play as a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te and my starting class will be a Thaumaturge. I like the Miqo'te because they're cute and I love cats in general. The Keepers of the Moon seem more mysterious to me and I like that about them. I enjoy caster classes and the Thaumaturge's have a more interesting skill set in that they deal in both out right damage and debuffing, or disabling spells.

My starting city will be Gridania because I like the idea of starting out in a lush, green, enclosed environment which seems very peaceful.

I will probably start in Limsa Lominsa because it reminds me of Bastok from FFXI. ^^

Hmm..let's see. I'll be playing a Dunesfolk Lalafell Conjurer and my home will be that of Gridania. I'll be working hard at being a Goldsmith and Miner. As to why, I was a TaruTaru from Windurst in FFXI and for some reason I like short people that cast magic. I chose Gridania, because it kinda reminds me of Windurst and I like the places that have lots of trees. Then theres the job. I chose Goldsmithing when I heard "High Risk, High Reward" which made it sound interesting, but knowing my luck I'll be broke forever lol...Oh and mining because I'll need to get mats somehow.

I will be a Highland Hyur because they look beastly and can be tall (I am tired of being a short taru-taru from FFXI).

My starting nation will be Ul'dah, because of it's "famed recreation in fighting arenas and gambling halls". Also, I think Ul'dah looks cool.

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



This is really difficult for me to answer, as my primary choice is not/will not be available at launch. So I'll answer twice.

Ideally:
I would start off as a Female Roegadyn from the Sea Wolves clan. Primarily using Pugilist, with Lancer and Archer Abilities. Square-Enix stated a few times that some abilities will work in tandem with each other and there is a set of abilities I really wish to test this out with. Quickstride + Tackle. They stated the distance you were from the monster would effect a Tackle's damage, But what about movement speed? Its interesting things like this that I wanna try out.

Sadly:
Female Roegadyn still seem to be a wish without a gift. So I've resigned myself to playing as a Miqo'te Keeper of the Sun. I'll probably still try similar things out with her, but instead I'll be mainclassing as Archer and using Lancer like abilities.


The nation state is easy.

My favorite Zone in FFXI was The Sanctuary of Zi'Tah. I love the music, the atmosphere, the attitude. As a result, I think I'll be most happy hanging out in Gridania. I'm not some tree hugger, It just seems like its going to be the most calm of the other cities. Less Traffic, Less annoyances, calmer attitude. I'm hoping to enjoy my stay there.

I'll play a Elezen Pugilist, from what I have seen on some video, pugilist seems really cool. As for nation-state, I'll choose Ul'dah, because a trade-city appeal to me, and the look of the desert around it remind me of prince of persia, a game I really liked.

First Char: Elezen
Nation State: Gridania

I ALWAYS play elves and they live in huge forests, duh! :)
#2233 Aug 06 2010 at 2:17 PM Rating: Decent

I would pick the Elezen as my race because they were the original inhabitants of Eorzea. I consider them to be the "good guys" out of all the races, since they just want to live in peace in their homeland and not have to deal with invaders like the Hyur. Plus, they look cool. I would pick archer for my class, since elven people are suited for bows and arrows and it's my favorite RPG class.

As for my starting nation-state, I would pick Gridania because I like foresty places. I like being surrounded by lush green scenery and feeling like I'm at one with nature.

I will be playing as a Dunesfolk Lalafell starting in Gridania. Dunesfolk just look awesome (zodiac symbols, glossy eyes) and Gridania is great looking and probably home to the guilds I will be most interested in.

When I begin my adventures in Eorzea, I plan to begin as a Midland Hyur in Limsa Lominsa. I've put much thought into this choice. I chose Hyur because of the flexibility of the race when it comes to picking classes, and chose to start in Limsa Lominsa because it's the first place I've seen so far. I would like to explore Eorzea myself with Limsa Lominsa as my starting point ^^

My first character will be a male Midland Hyur Gladiator. I will start in Gridania because I like the idea of a large forest area to start exploring in. It really seems like a real nice place where you can get started and just enjoy yourself with a very laid back theme. Also, I want to be a gladiator because they look awesome. They also look fun to play, and I have a friend I'm going to be playing with a lot.

Lalafell, Dunesfolk style, in Limsa Lominsa if at all possible~ I love fishing, and having a house that could walk would be AWESOME!! I'm not so sure that mechanic would be in the game or not, but still neat to think about!

My first character in Eorzea will be Roegadyn and the nation-state will be Gridania. Why? Because I used to be a Bastok citizen when I still play FFXI and Limsa Lominsa is a little bit closer to be the Bastok of FFXIV so I want to try new starting city. For me, Ul'dah is more like San d'Oria from FFXI and I really did not like being in a rich city like that. SO yeah, that is why....

For giving me this opportunity to answer this survey, thank you.

My first character

Class : Conjurer

Race : Lalafell

Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

My race was chosen because I was a taru BLM in ffxi and I would like to recreate my character here. Limsa Lominsa is the city because its a beautiful city and its surrounded by grassy areas which makes the city look even more wonderful.

I will very likely play a Miqo'te, and for class, perhaps a thaumaturge. I will very likely start in Limsa, as port towns spark an old love deep within me. Why a healing cat-girl? Because, I like to play shorter characters [but not midget short], and I've been known to be quite the healer.

Starting Character: Hyur (Midlander) Conjuror
Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

I will be playing a Conjuror because I have always been a fan of support classes (I played a RDM in FFXI), they are fun and make a group able to do a lot more and a lot faster. I like the look/style of the Hyur Midlanders as well as the backstory behind their immigration into Eorzea. I will be starting in Limsa Lominsa, because I am very fond of the sea. The area looks simply stunning.

I am planning on being an Elezen or Hyur Highlander. For class I'm thinking Lancer, I want to be able to deal damage well and also play an interesting class, with their mid-range style Lancer seems good. I want to start in Gridania, I always like forest areas in games a lot, I enjoyed San d'Oria a lot in FFXI when I played it.

I will be creating a Seekers of the Sun Miqo'te Lancer, and plan to start in Gridania. I chose this as I played a mithra DRG back when I played XI and see no reason to change from that original ideal. And Gridania seems the most similar to Windurst as well as Gridania having its own special guard of lancers so it makes sense from a lore standpoint.

Lalafell
Conjurer
Gridania

Why: I played a black mage Taru in FFXI and i loved it, As for the city, Gridania reminds me of Windy which was my favorite city/favorite music of XI as well.
