I am most definitely going to be a Hyur Blacksmith working in Ul'dah. I loved playing as a Hume in FFXI (ignore the user name haha) and I hope I shall love it even more in this new game :) Also, Ul'dah looks like an amazing place and the descriptions written by SE make it sound even cooler. The reason I want to be a Blacksmith is because I love doing support roles to keep my friends and fellow players going strong :D

I plan on playing a hyur in Limsa Lomisa and I will be a full time fisherman. I always enjoyed fishing in ffxi and i probably fished more than i exped I would love to do that full time. As for the city where better for a fisherman than the port city surrounded by water. As for Hyur I have a name picked out and it fits that race best.

Hello, Im very interested in participating in the beta,

After carefully looking into the posibilities with the classes i was given, id prefer a Blacksmith, i just love being a support class and making the group itself work better, with my presence. Plus i love being a supporter från earlier MMOs. A Hyur as Blacksmith in Limsa Lomisa sounds indeed tempting, I just love the areas there!

So, grateful for any invite :p

I will be a male Midlander Hyur starting in Gridania.

I plan to be this because it is reminiscent of my time in FFXI - male Hume from Windurst. I had such a fantastic time playing FFXI that I want to recreate it in FFXIV!! :)

My first character will be a Roegadyn Hellsguard and I will start in Limsa Lominsa. I chose Hellsguard because I think fiery red hulk-like characters are far more badass than bite sized characters. I picked Limsa Lominsa because it seems fitting for the Roegadyn and a city surrounded by water sounds the most visually appealing. Hope I get a key but if not, I don't mind waiting a few more months for it to actually go retail :).

Lalafell... because everyone always forgets about the little guy until he's suddenly latched onto their throat, and by then it's too late.

What nation-state will you start in?

Limsa Lominsa

Why?

Because a Lalafell from Limsa Lominsa sounds infuriatingly cute. Super Alliteration Powers of Glorious Destruction... GO!

* Gladiator / Elezen. Tankaholic
* City: Limsa Lominsa. From the previews Limsa Lominsa is nice and open. I like nice open cities and the areas just outside remind me of Latheine Plateau, brings back many good memories.

Race: Seawolf Roegadyn
Class: Fisherman
Starting City: Limsa Lominsa
Why?: I've always liked the sea and fishing probably because I live in the middle of the desert. This gives me a chance to live a life of a big burly fisherman who belongs on "Deadliest Catch."

My first character will be a Lalafell. I'm choosing this due to the fact I played a tarutaru paladin in FFXI and cannot see myself playing any other race in Eorzea.

Midland Hyur, Gridania.

I want to start with these two traits because I'm a peaceful man. Creating a character in a serene town such as Gridania would be very soothing, I hope to be apart of the city's economy, and grow as a character to encounter secrets of the town and Eorzea itself.

My first character will be a Lalafell Thaumaturge and I will start in Limsa Lominsa. Lalafell because they are cute, thaumaturge because they are destructive, and Limsa Lominsa because Pirates are awesome.

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.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? I want to be a Roegadyn because I like being massive on my screen. I also like the fact that no matter what race people pick there will always be a noticeable size difference. As far as the city I would start in I really do not know what city I would start in but I do know I will stop by every city if possible. Why? Well being a Roegadyn kinda fits me. If this game will be anything like FFXI hardly anyone will be one and the more unique the better.

Race: Miqo'te

Why?
It's in the center of the continent being able to reach more places around the city with ease.

It's a hard choice between Miqo'te and Elezen. I'll most likely go with Miqo'te and be an archer. I'd choose Miqo'te because I play as a Mithra in FFXI and I've became so attached to them. Honestly, it's because they're so darn cute. :)


What nation-state will you start in?

I will be choosing Gridania for my nation-state becuase it's surrounded by nature. It makes the city so beautiful and interesting.

I think I'll try a Hyur in Gridania, because I've been an Elvaan in Sandy for the past 5 years, and am looking forward to a fresh start, new challenges, and solving new mysteries ingame, rather than looking up answers. Should be a blast! one way or another, I look forward to seeing everyone in Eorzea!

My first character is going to be a Dunesfolk Lalafell cause who doesn't love a cute 'ittle guy whose trying to be angry. The nation I will start in will be Ul'Dah for it seems more like a home for the Dunesfolk, or it will be Gridania for its description reminding me of Windurst the home I spentaru in XI for so many years since '04. My Dunesfolk will be a Gladiator, the time I've spent on XI I was a little paladin so let it continue on with the survival of others lying in the grasp of my hand. I will also be a Miner so I have the ability to make money just as I did in XI but I will take up Armorer so I can make and repair my own equipment as well as my friends. Well thataru and to maybe just to see what it takes to synthesize the stuff compared to the what you had to do in XI.

I will be playing a female Plainsfolk Lalafell conjurer (who also fishes and cooks!), starting in the city-state of Gridania. I've been wanting to play as a Lalafell since FFXIV was announced, and have always favored healing and support magic. I also originally hail from Windurst, so it's my greatest hope to find that "home" feeling in Gridania.

Will go with a male Midland Hyur, starting in Gridania, and probably start with Archer...but end up doing EVERYTHING. Why Gridania..well, I want to stand tall amongst the little people to help my self esteem. Played 3 yrs as a Taru...so I feel its time to grow up.

Also...even though I have CE on the way...I sure wouldnt mind testing the waters on my new rig! I7 860 with a 5770...should be pretty sweet.

My first character is going to be a Hyur male starting in Limsa Lominsa. I like the feel of port cities and sort of have a backstory forming in which my character was a former mercenary in the area, working with a long time partner who died recently leaving him on his own for the first time in years.

I think I am going to be a Miqo'te in the Nation-state Limsa Lominsa. This is because I like cats and I think that emotions and the gracefulness are interesting the their character. Limsa Lominsa is the nation-state I would like to start in because I like scenery that I was able to view through the ff14 website.

Lalafell weaver
Gridania
I am making a lalafell because i played a tarutaru in final fantasy 11 online. I like to be the race that are strongest mages. I also like playing child genius characters. I studied textiles in rl and fighting as a weaving will be interesting. Tarutarus home nation was windrust. Gridania is closest to windrust so i will be starting there. Also as a weaver it may be the best choice since there will be plenty of plants which may include cotton and other weaver ingrediants. I also like rarabs and hopefully there will be some around in gridania

I will play for Roegadyn because itself was the seaman and I love the sea. A trade I will choose Seewolf. Pirates always inspired me the cruelty and organisation.

Highland Hyur, and I would love to start in Limsa Limonsa, Why...

I honestly dig the way the Highland Hyur looks and the idea of them being from the mountains. I would like to start in Limsa Limonsa because I am a fisherman at heart and a cook for fun. It seems like the only place to be if you are like me.

Just wanted to say the musical score for this game is amazing, peace be wit yall.

I'd like to be a Hyurran Disciple of Magic - I really enjoy healing, so that may be where I go with it. Gridania sounds like the place for me - along with the inclination towards healing, I love natural influences as well.

A Miqo'te archer in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
A Miqo'te archer would be pretty bad *** and it's basic knowledge that sea = pirates and a Miqo'te archer pirate would be super bad ***.

My first character will be a Lalafell conjurer named Kukai Durandai. Kukai will start in the nation-state of Ul'dah. I like that the layout of Ul'dah is organized, the walls are fortified on all sides, and that Ul-dah is a hub for commercial activity. The nation-state of Ul'dah sounds like a great starting place to launch a career into Eorzea!

Thaumaturge - Sounds like a black mage to me, that was my favorite class in ffxi besides dark knight, and the drain skill of the Thaumaturge confirms my decision.

Lallafell
- If it was like it was in ffxi the lallafell will have loads of MP, making me a better Thaumaturge.

Ul'Dah - I like the idea of it being a fortress-like city.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Hyur Gladiator starting in Ul'dah. The area seems like it will bring a constant promise for adventure, and I am sure that I will be able to make a lot of friends in the area as well as it will be a bustling location that is in the middle of a desolate environment. This will definitely make for an exciting opportunity for exploring the vast unknown. I am choosing gladiator because I have never played as a tank before and I am eager to try it out.

In this new adventure game, I chose the Conjurer never played the game as I am looking forward to the beginning, and with Elezen this figure began to explore the city on Ul'dah. After practice more occupations will add fun, the choice of a start this is my favorite.

I'm going to play Roegadyn Marauder in the Final Fantasy XIV.I will start in Limsa Lominsa.Choice has a strong military background Limsa Lominsa started as Roegadyn most appropriate of the country. The body has a Marauder this powerful form of this attack is also a certain career choices.

Going to roll a Hyur (Highlander) because they will likely have the best beards of all the races and likely will be a Marauder as my main until some more classes are released. Limsa-Lominsa looks great, but it also has been covered the most. Here's to hoping I can be a sweet viking or pirate if I am from there.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te and I will be starting in Gridania.
I choose this because I plan to play the Archer class, just as I played the ranger job in FFXI over the last several years.. I love ranged classes and the forest city of Gridania seems perfect for my image of an archer / ranger.
I would also like to be a carpenter so that I may make my own arrows and what not to support my (assuming to be) expensive class.
