My first character in ff 14 well be a Miqo'te lancer because i never had the chance as a Mithra in ff11. My nation state would be Gridania cause it seems like it would have the best scenary.

I think I would have to choose The Miqo’te, Seekers of the Sun, and I would have to choose Ul'Dah.

The reasons behind this are that I just like to get into the game. I want to start as a DoH Blacksmith to get my weapons going and Ul'Dah seems like the best place for my character to fit in, i.e needing minerals and "Seekers of the Sun"... Desert, you know.

Thanks

Lalafell Conjurer in Gridania. I love the mage architype in final fantasy games and I love the way Gridania looks. I really think my little lalafell could settle down and be a full time crafter here eventually :)

I plan on being a Duskwight Elezen Pugilist and will start off in Limsa Lomisa. I played FFXI as a elven and want to stay true to that. I would like to start in Limsa Lomisa due to the fact that all of the guilds Im looking for to start are there; armorsmith, blacksmith, and fishing. The nation symbol looks similar to Sandoria as well :)

Race: Elezen because I loved my Elvaan character in FFXI.
Class: Lancer because Im quite fond of polearms and im interested in how range works with this melee weapon.
Nation: Gridania seems interesting to me and I would like explore the city because it does remind me of Windurst which was my starting city in FFXI.

I will roll a Keeper of the Moon Miqo’te cause cats are cool and to keep on the subject blue is fitting and will be a Marauder to start and then going to a Thaumaturge later on as I like to be in the midst of the action but also like to be a support character.

I will start off in Gridania as most games I have played have been so desolate and a change of scenery would be nice.

C u in Eorzea!!!!!

The Wildwood Elezen, I'm Elvaan to the heart. We are the superior race. Probably will start in Limsa Lominsa just because it kinda reminds me of Jeuno and I spent many hours shouting there for help and such. Just as I love Elvvan I love my warrior too. So, I'll choose the Marauder and craft will be alchemist. I don't know about subjobs yet. Still hoping beastmaster makes it's way on the game.

Race: Dunesfolk
Location: Ul'Dah
Classes: Thaumaturge, Alchemist, Botonist
Reason:

I chose this combination since it continues where I left off in FFXI. I played Taru BLM, who adventured through Vanadiel with his "good twin", Goodhobbit, a Taru WHM. We had many adventures together as various jobs later on, but this was our root, and I plan on starting fresh again!

My first caracter will be a Miqo'te (seeker of the sun) Archer at launch, all classes later on. I will start in gridania.

I want to play miqo'te because i really enjoyed THF and COR in FFXI and both job were better as a mithra. Now that i want to play archer i got the miqo'te stuck into my mind. The starting city might change according to people i play with. I want to play with people i know to enjoy the game togheter but i hope i can make them start in gridania because it look really beautiful, even if Limsa Lominsa look beautiful also. But as for now i don't really need to choose where im starting because the main goal is to find bug! Thanks for reading :)

Lalafell Conjurer. Because in my opinion, there's nothing more awesome than a teeny, tiny nuker. I'll start in Gridania because it's simply gorgeous, and i've always been a huge fan of woodsy/forest areas in all kinds of games. As my husband said, i'm a total Hib (DAoC). :/

My first character will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn Gladiator. My starting nation-state will be Gridania. I've chosen to be a Roegadyn because I was a Elvaan in FFXI, and found that it was much too common. My best guess is that much like Galkas in FFXI, Roegadyn's will be one of the least common races. I've chosen Gridania because Windurst was my starting city in FFXI, and I always enjoyed it there.

As for my starting nation-state... thats an easy one Gridania because I am loyal to windurst and this will allow me to carry on this loyalty lol.

I will be starting as a Hyur Highlander because they are well built and tough looking, this works well because I want
to be a gladiator tank becaue I like to defend the weak.

I'll be starting in the City of Ul'Dah mainly because it's described more as a fortress and is said to be built like a dome so I'd imagine everything will be relatively easy to find as opposed to platforms everywhere in limsa lominsa.

I like how the city is isolated and also surrounded by desert, it will be nice to see something different for the first time, because so far, every video I have seen has been related to limsa lominsa.

I will be starting as a Roegadyn Sea Wolf in Limsa Lominsa. I plan to start as a Gladiator and work my way through the melee classes and Disciples of the Hand/Land. I was always a fan of the Galka in FFXI and want to see how the Roegadyn compare in play style and in background story. I love being on the front lines and soaking up the brunt of the damage. I love the naval theme of Limsa and would love to represent the Roegadyn Sea Wolves. Thank you for the opportunity! :)

My first character, I plan to make a Pugilist Lalafell in Limsa Lominsa.

Pugilist because I've always like evasive jobs, and Pugilist looks to be the closest thing to "Thief" from FFXI. Lalafell because my FFXI character was a tarutaru, and Limsa Lominsa because of the guilds there, though that may change once further info on the other city-states is released.

Race is going to be Miqo'te (gotta love the cat ears lol) and i will probably be playing a Conjurer due to the fact that as of right now it seems to be the class with more of a healing option to it and out of my group of friends that always play games together nobody really likes to have anything to do with healing except me lol. As far as starting area i am considering Gridania mostly because it seems more like a out of the way secluded city to start in.

I will be a Highland Hyur and I will start in Gridania because the Highland Hyur's design looks quite different from the more traditional FFXI Hume character style and I would love to start in Gridania because it is located within a forest. My first job will probably be a carpenter because I want to start in Gridania.

My first character will be a Duskwight Elezen and his starting nation-state will be Ul'Dah. Why? Simply because I want my character to have a darker tone/history to come from and the nation and character race background fits that. I'm kind of at a gist of how the system works, so I'll be aiming to max out everything in every field and use it when it's needed for whatever situation. I plan to do a lot of gaming in this game and honestly, I haven't been a fan off Final Fantasy for a while.

I lost faith a while back but always said I'd give it a last chance. Versus was supposed to be that last chance, but with this game's SAGA level-like system (FF2 system before that, I believe.) and the fact that I've been needed an mmo to get into for the longest, I've decided to try this instead. Currently, it's just about everything I've wanted in an MMO for a while and I'd like to see if it follows through with that before I buy the collector's edition.

I will be a Hyur conjurer starting in Gridania. Humans have always appealed to me as a race in MMOs because they have the characteristic of being tenacious and influential, as they are in FFXIV.
I would like to be a conjurer because of his powerful elemental spells and ability to also heal and protect others if necessary.
Lastly, I chose Gridania as my nation state because I've always felt the most at home in wooded forest-like environments that are close to nature, and Gridania seems to reflect that preference nicely.

Going to start as a Hellsguard Roegadyn, Marauder, in Limsa. I want to be more geared toward DD/tanking and I think the Roegadyn fit the criteria. Starting in Limsa because I know I don't like Ul'Dah because it's in middle of a desert and I don't want to start in a forest like Gridania. Limsa seems most upbeat. ;)

My first character will absolutely be a dunesfolk lalafell pugilist. I played a tarutaru monk in FFXI and loved being the tiny brawler, flipping and punching huge things in the shins. I will continue my plight!

What nation-state will you start in?

Gridania, for the simple reason of it being an absolutely gorgeous and mystical forest environment. It's something that really appeals to me setting-wise, and could prove to be one of the more interesting starting areas.

My first character will be a Miqo'te Marauder starting Ul'dah because I was a Mithra Warrior in FFXI and watching a cat girl decked out in armor, swinging a 2 handed axe tickles me. I also intend to make her a Seeker of the Sun so Ul'dah seems like a good place to start.

My first character will be a Sea-Wolf Roegadyn Gladiator from Limsa Lominsa.

As for why, it's two-fold: When I originally made my character in FFXI, I chose a Hume because I wanted to play a Red Mage. While I had played MMOs prior to FFXI, I had never made it very far and my time playing them was rather limited. FFXI was the first MMO I invested a lot of time into, so going in I didn't know what I really wanted to play. I chose Red Mage because I loved the idea of the Jack-Of-All-Trades type character as it had been presented in previous FF games (specifically FF1).

But once I actually got into the game and made it into the 20s and 30s, I got a better feel for the game. People didn't want a Jack-Of-All-Trades (and this aspect has remained generally the case with other MMOs I've played). What they wanted from me, as a Red Mage, was to be a buffer and a debuffer with the occasional heal being tossed out to help out the WHM. While there was a little bit of the Jack-Of-All-Trades going on with helping heal, for the most part my role was support. When I came to realize this and embraced it (leveling BLM and WHM for my subs, compared to previously having leveled THF for my sub...) I found not only that I was good at it (of the many things I've been accused of, being humble is never been one of them...) but I also really enjoyed it.

I didn't know it at the time, but my experiences with the high pressure position of a Red Mage would pretty much forever set the tone of what I considered to be a fun and rewarding experience as a player. Now, those on the outside who never played as a Red Mage might be wondering, "High pressure...? But RDMs just occasionally cast Refresh and/or Haste and put some debuffs on the mobs. That's not high pressure!" Well, it wasn't that simple. Unlike many other more modern MMOs, the only way you could tell when a debuff wore from your enemies was if you had your combat text colored correctly, and was actively scanning it for when the debuffs wore off, plus you needed to track the duration of your buffs on yourself and your allies and quickly recast them when they wear off.

But I digress... the point is that this flurry of activity for well over a two year period became the norm for me. Upon reaching they had not yet implemented MeriPo, so while I did quests and missions and the like, the only real thing left for me to do was to try out leveling other jobs. Some of them were out for merely thematic reasons. I wasn't really interested in playing a Bard or a Beastmaster. I gave a couple of other jobs and roles a try.

I thought (again for thematic reasons) that I might like Samurai or Dragoon, but when compared to the flurry of activity that I had enjoyed as a Red Mage, these jobs were boring. Sure I needed to keep track of my TP, but due to the long cooldown (a minute or more) of most of my abilities, short of spamming my TP macro, I would just wait for either one of my powers to be off cooldown or wait to do my WS (possibly made even longer if I was doing a skillchain).

I had played the Black Mage while leveling it up to be one of my two primary subjobs for Red Mage, and I found it just endlessly boring. Generally I was just casting the same spell over and over, with the occasional other spell tossed in to Magic Burst at the end of a skillchain.

White Mage had that same feeling, but the disconnect from combat was not quite my cup of tea either. I wasn't so much helping my allies in fighting the monsters as I was fighting their life bars from becoming empty.

Where I finally found what I really wanted was when I started playing a Paladin. While there was still definitely the cases of kinda standing around waiting for my powers to come off cooldown, I had to be constantly vigilant in making sure that my allies didn't pull aggro, that I was using my powers at the best time I could. I reveled in this feeling of constant activity while actively engaged in fighting the enemy.

At this point a small part of me regretted making a Hume. Sure, I could swap back and forth between Red Mage and Paladin and be fairly effective at either, but if I had to go back and start all over, I would have picked a Galka. Their sturdiness and high HP pools would have been a boon in what I found that I loved. As time passed and I dabbled in other MMOs, tanking was the only role that I found I really loved. Pure support roles like the Red Mage sorta faded away after games like WoW came out and even the games that did have them were a lot more free with information like how long until debuffs and buffs wear off, meaning less emphasis on that need to focus intently on every detail.

So I'm hoping that the Roegadyn will be similar to the Galka, with a strong emphasis on being the toughest and hardiest of the five races.

I want to be a Gladiator because, while I know the Pugilist will also be able to tank, in my mind a tank is the guy with a sword and shield, heavy armor, standing in front of his allies proudly guarding them from their enemies, and that's a Gladiator.

Finally, as for why I chose Limsa Lominsa, first and foremost I love the idea of a giant port city. I'm hoping for a few missions where I can go sailing out to sea. Plus the background for the Roegadyn paints many of them as having strong ties to the ocean (which is why I'm probably going to play a Sea-Wolf Roegadyn), so it seems like a perfect fit. And finally a minor thing is, in FFXI, I was a proud citizen of San d'Oria and it's beautiful red flag... the same color flag as Limsa Lominsa.

I'll be playing a Hyur Highlander gladiator with a nation state of Ul'Dah. I played paladin in FFXI and loved it. I think highlander will be a nice twist as I played Hume in FFXI. I'm looking forward to seeing how tanking and party dynamics overall will work in FFXIV. The nation state choice was more difficult. I find myself torn between Gridania and Ul'Dah. I'll have to explore them both before knowing but I think Ul'Dah will be the city I chose.

Can't wait to play! I've already pre ordered the collectors edition :D.

I would create a Roegadyn Lancer from Limsa Lominsa.
Roegadyn appeal to me because they seem to be the most physical of the races, and I enjoy melee combat.
Lancer seems the most intersting and non-standard mmo type class, and thus appeals.
And finally, Limsa Lominsa is home to the Sea Wolves faction of the Roegadyn and also has pirates. Fun.

For sure, I'm going to make a Lalafell. I always liked playing as the small races. something about a tiny fellow like that holding his own against larger opponents seems inspiring; a whole David vs Goliath thing.

as far as my class, I dunno there seems to be so many options its hard to say. I've always liked pet classes, so a conjurer is tempting, but at the same time a tiny gladiator might be kinda fun too.

I think I'd want to try Pugilist first though, a little dude punching enemies down. Kinda sounds like a brawler from EQ2 and that was one of my favorite classes of all times from any mmo i've played.


Lalafell Pugilist, doesn't let his size hold him back, gets right up in you're face anyway.

Male Lafafell because there looks are most appealing to me. I also played a Taru in FFXI and enjoyed adventuring as one. Gridania from what I have gathered it appears like a beautiful nation. Also Windurst was my nation in FFXI and Gridania reminds me of it.
