What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
While I've thought about changing it up and playing a Miqo'te, I'm pretty sure I'm going to play a Male Elezen hailing from the city state of Gridania as my first character. I'm not 100% certain which class I'm going to play first yet, but I'm leaning towards Pug or Conjurer.
When it comes to MMOs, I've almost always played an Elf or elf-like race, FFXI included. I like the Tolkien-esc idea of elves living in trees, in harmony with nature and will most likely act upon that by starting in Gridania.
