First Character: Hyur Highlander Gladiator
Home city: Ul'dah
I've always fond of using "human" races in MMOs, though I have dabbled as a dwarf, heh. Basically I choose humanesque races because it gives me the chance to use a character persona I've used in role playing for over twenty years. I'm choosing to be a Gladiator, because, well...I'm a tank. I usually play tanks unless there is a DPS I fall in love with, and right now I'm not into the current DPS options. So, I'm ready to pick up my sword and board and be a meatshield people can count on to get the job done.
I'm choosing Ul'dah because as an old school FF XI man, I'm a Bastokan at heart. Looking at Ul'dah I immediately feel the old pull of Bastok, so I kinda feel like I'm coming home again. It's just that simple.
