hat will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
My first character is going to be elezen and from limsa lominsa, why? because i played ffxi for years, and enjoyed being elvaan, the elezen seem very similar, for the city i simply just like the sound/look of it.

I'll be playing as a Wildwood Elezen Lancer starting in Gridania.

Why?

Reading the descriptions and doing countless research, lancer to me seems like the support class that is about TP usage and drainage, and helping the tank keep aggro. From various videos I've seen tanking might prove to be a little more difficult, and, trying to re-live my old SAM days, I really enjoy the TP generation and coordination with other group players.

I've always liked the look of SE elves (call me crazy) and I'm hoping to play a samurai-like character in terms of play-style, and the Wildwood seems to have that element of honor and respect.

As for Gridania, Windurst never really appealed to me (Sandy all the way!), but the Gridania architecture really intrigues me with the wooden gears and the tree-house-esque buildings. I'm really looking forward to exploring this city.

My first character will be a midland hyur, and I want to start in giradania, as I like the magical feel it's description seems to be implying it will have.

Gl everyone, hope to see everyone in game!

Oh the ways I've mulled this over in my head. I believe my first character will by a Hyur Highlander from Limsa Lominsa as either a Lancer or Pugilist.

Quote:
Why?


The highlander clan seems to have an interesting back story. With their homeland destroyed by the eastern empire, they're now mercenaries and vagrants. Since stats likely won't be a factor for race/clan, that seems as good a reason as any for that.
Limsa Lominsa grabbed my attention because of the pirate-like imagery SE has put out in relation to it. Corsair was my favorite job in Final Fantasy XI, so going with Limsa Lominsa seemed like a great opportunity to remember a character I played for six years and all the adventures I had while starting off on a new adventure on a new world.
As for class, Monk and Dragoon were both jobs I took to 75. On top of my reasons for beginning in Limsa, it'd be nice to start with a little additional familiarity until I see what the classes are like first hand. Even if only aesthetically.


Good luck, everyone!

I'll be a Midlander Hyur starting in Ul'dah. Why? It's simply the most adventurous option I could offer myself. As someone fond of traversing long distances and exploring new areas, the deserts of Ul'dah seemed like the best place with the most exciting stories and discoveries just WAITING to happen! Regardless of whether I get in to the beta or not, I know that Ul'dah's where it's at!

My first character will be a Hyur male named Jimma, as I like to try and make characters that look like myself into these types of games.

I will be starting in Ul'dah because being an ex Bastokian and loving the arid desert environments I think that this nation will be the best match for me.

Definitely Hyur and the nation-state im not sure of yet. Since im a hume in FFXI I don't see myself changing especially with all the charachter customization options unless the Mi'quote (i think thats the spelling) end up having some pretty cool emotes. Overall jobwise i want to try them all but my first will probably be maurader since i love warrior and dark knight on XI.

Duskwight Elezen,because i was an Elvaan in FFXI as for classes mainly Pugilist beucase i always liked close-combat but also Marauder really enjoy 2 handed weapons and big damage.For crafts probably Armorer,Blacksmith and Culinarian.Starting City Uldah because desert seems kind of cool,and on the information about it says its going to have fighting arenas thats going to be very fun.

Hopefuly test game features to have a good bug free game on release,cant really count the times a game was not properly tested and release with major bugs,even after months after release still continue.

My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen Pugilist and my nation-state will be Limsa Lominsa. I will be a Wildwood Elezen Pugilist because in FFXI I had an Elvaan and grew quite attached to him and because Samurai is not yet available I will be choosing Pugilist. I also chose Limsa Lominsa to be my nation-state because it looks unique and kinda gives me a Jeuno like feel from what I have seen.

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

I get all fuzzy feeling inside when i start to ponder over my first character and his/her starting city. My first will be a wildwood elezen from the Nation of Gridania ,i love the forest and im sure outside there will be streams and maybe ponds for fishing with lots of plants and trees for trying botanist too. In all i think it will be a good place to start the adventure ive been craveing.

I would start the game as a Midland Hyur Gladiator, but I definitely will be trying out the other classes as well.

Limsa Lominsa, it reminds me of San d'Oria the most. I have a little Sandy Pride still in me.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? A Hellsguard Roegadyn Ranger in Gridania.

Why? I love the looks of Hellsguard Roegadyns and Bow and arrows are just Awesome. Gridania seem to be a very cozy city. That's why!

I will be a Miqo'te because I was a Mithra in XI and I love how they improved the look. All the races look great now but I think the Miqo'te looks great.

Gridania because it is lush and green, the complete opposite to Bastok which was where I started in XI.

Lalafel - Dunesfolk - Lancer, Because I am just in love with the character design and I never got a chance to play a taru in ffxi. Also the eyes on the Dunesfolk are just gorgeous.

Gridania, Because I started in windurst for ffxi and this seems the most similar. I like the idea of forests and finding out what might be hiding deep in the forests surrounding it.

A duskwight Elezen. Played too many hyur-like characters, time for something with pointy ears. Healing class all the way baby!

Ul'dah for the mining. Friend from my old linkshell is gonna craft some armor or goldsmith, so he'll be needing cheap supplies.


Why?

Been playing FF XI for about a year now. Just before the E3 2009 announcement, and that seemed a sign. FFXI was (and still is) fun for me so a game by the same team can only be good. So I've been rather obsessively following FFXIV sites like ZAM or Eorzeapedia in my RSS reader. Oh and several Google alerts that show anything related to this game. So even if i don't get a key I'll be bouncing my leg hitting refresh waiting for more news from your site :)

What will your first character in Eorzea be?:
If I have to choose one character, I would choose a wildwood elezen archer, but I plan to play all 18 classes and if they come out with more, I will play them too and level them up evenly.

What nation-state will you start in?:
I plan to start in Limsa Lominsa because I know the most about it right now.

Why?:
I would like to test and give feedback on how the xbox 360 controller for pc works on ffxiv.

The exact race I will be playing really depends on the character creator and what they look like. Currently I'm leaning toward Highland Hyur or Elezen, but not sure yet. Starting class will be Marauder, however, I plan on trying them all.

I do, however, know that I will be starting in Ul'Dah. The Arabian feel of the city as well as the political intrigue between the Sultan and the Syndicate sound too intriguing to pass up.

My first Character in Eorzea will be names Meryl Stryfe (Easy for me to make 2 names!), a Miqo'te from Gridania.


Why?

I always liked the Miqo'te style, and unfortunately, yes, I am a MANTHRA. For me, its all about tradition. I started FFXI at the NA PC launch with a Mithra by the same name (only squished together), and from Windurst. I really enjoy the nature motif and the fact that the Conjurer's guild is based out of Gridania makes it the most convenient starting city for my future Conjurer.

Lalafell either as Conjurer or Thaumaturge starting in Limsa Lominsa!! I always regretted going Elven in FF11 because of my loved for the taru taru!! So now I get a second chance at playing a caster class(my favorite classes) as my favorite race from the good old days!! The reason I picked Limsa Lominsa for a starting area is because I felt at home when I played in the old Elven city in FF11 so I'm hoping that will make FF14 feel more comfortable from the start.

I will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn named Bharata Senka (which roughly translates to Shadow of the Giant). I will hail from Ul'Dah, and my backstory will be that I was raised outside of the main clan in the shadows of the tallest mountain surrounding Ul'Dah (hence the name).

I will probably be a Pugilist because I like to see the Roe man-cleavage, cause they're hawt...

Other than that, all I have to say is that I am really looking forward to this game. I plan to play at release regardless if I get a Beta invite or not, it would just be nice to play a month or so in advance.

I always enjoyed playing a monk in ffxi so i would love to get back into something similar, and the name Ul'dah makes me think of something exotic like the zones of Aht'Urhgan, so I'm very excited thinking about the city's architecture and just overall general style.

Hello and thanks for creating an opportunity to let us win some beta keys. Here are my answers :

What will your first character in Eorzea ?

My first character will be a Lalafell, i was Hume in FFXI and i want some changes.

What nation-state will you start in?

Beta seems to only have Limsa Lominsa, so no choice to start there if i get picked up, and i'll probably start in the same city on the full game comes out.

Why?

Why... ? Because lalafell will bring some changes to my online experiences, compared to FFXI and starting in Limsa Lominsa seems fair since spending your time in there will be useful when playing the game once it's being released.

Thanks again.

For my first character I've decided to go Duskwight Elezen as a Thaumaturge. Specializing in culinary and fishing. I will start in Limsa-Lominsa as this is where the two guilds are that I plan to specialize.

Why
I discovered the original Final Fantasy in high school in 1987. To be honest I would like to say I would like a beta invite to help work out bugs, but at this stage is there much a new comer can find and report? Honestly, I would like an invite to get a early view of the new world, controls and game mechanics.

My first character will be a Female Midland Hyur Archer starting in Limsa Lominsa.

This will be my first character because firstly i have always preferred the more human looking characters and i need to have a character i like the look of to enjoy playing that character.
I have always loved playing physical ranged classes in all games and so Archer would fit me best, the idea of having to keep range for example is a tricky thing to do which makes it more challenging which i like.
And finally Limsa Lominsa is just the best looking city i have seen so far and again the game will be more enjoyable starting in a city i like.

Also i would like to get into the beta in order to test out my pc to see if the game will work well on it and given my years of experience in MMO's feel i could provide good feedback to help improve the game for release.

My first character in the land of Eorzea will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn Lancer/Miner residing in Ul'dah. In FFXI I was an Elvaan from Windurst. A few months after settling into my Elvaan, I always was envious of the giant Galkas running around looking all strong and durable. I almost never choose an "extreme" in terms of size when choosing a race in an MMO and I felt FFXIV was finally the MMO I was going to go for the "big" race! I also find the concept of the Hellsguard protecting their mountains and volcanoes because they think it is a gateway to the underworld very interesting.

I'm going to choose Ul'dah because I had a big fascination with Al Zahbi in FFXI, as well a the desert areas surrounding Bastok. I do not want to choose Gridania because as an ex-Windurstian, I'm all set with living in the trees! Ul'dah also interests me because of the mention of fighting arenas being within the city. Though SE hasn't mentioned anything about PvP, even lore-wise this still interests me. Ul'dah seems to be a truly awesome fortress in the deserts and I can't wait to be a citizen of it!

I realize Hellsguard and Ul'dah seem to be a somewhat obvious matchup, but I'd like to think I chose them each because I really find them interesting, not because it seems like that's what the lore was telling me to do!

This is Flak (blank last name so you don't steal it! :P) the Hellsguard Roegadyn, hoping for a beta invite :) see you all in Eorzea!
