I will be playing a Duskwight Elezen and my starting city will be Limsa Lominsa. Why because San d'Oria was my favorite city in FFXI and from the looks it seems to be a coastal version. ^.^

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

duskwight elezen, limsa lominsa.

I am a girl who is relative new to online gaming (only 4-5 months), and i have played aion, wow, and lotro; my boyfriend is very excited about ffxiv, and to be honest i am too, even though i'm new! I think i would start as a duskwight elezen, and start in limsa lominsa. i feel like with the racial description, the piratical theme of the setting would fit. i also really like all the nautical themed names of all the landmarks. i love pirates and boating and all things to do with the sea, and since robbery and pillaging are what the duskwights are known for it isn't such a far leap to piracy :)

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

Race: Hyur
Nation: Ul'dah, because I didn't like windurst in FFXI and Gridania looks too much like it. I don't like the music in Limsa Lominsa, so considering the time i'll have to spend in a starting city, I'd rather not have to endure it. I refuse to just lower the music volume.

Besides, Ul'dah looks bad ***.

I'm going to play the Lalafell Thaumaturge in Gridania.Lalafell is so lovely, he has done Master of the better and better. Forest City is the most suitable place where he was born. So I chose this as the beginning of this game.

Ill be playing a Miqo’te (seeker of the sun) Lancer hailing from Limsa Lominsa. I enjoyed Dragoon very much in FF11 so this time around ill be playing Lancer. And Limsa Lominsa sounds like a very interesting city due to it being layed out across several small islands, plus port cities are always the best :D

An Elezen Lancer of Gridania.

Elven was my most played race in FFXI and I plan to use the same character model as my main job-an elven dark knight. I plan to build my lancer as close to my dark knight as possible, being a melee damage dealer with numerous debuffs and a few spells to play with from other classes. Gridania will be my starting nation of choice since i've always been most fond of foresty environments in mmo's, that and it seems to be a good hub for the woodworking guild.

My first character will be a Hyur Marauder from Limsa Lominsa, because I think it is the best looking town of the three and I like carrying around a big weapon.

What Character will you be?
I'm planning on starting out as a Hyur Pugilist. Although not an original race choice they tend to start off pretty balanced. The Pugilist is just because there's something special about beating things with your bare hands.

What city will you start in?
Limsa Lominsa because I like costal towns.

I would like to start out as a Miqo'te (purely for sentimental reasons: ie toon in FFIX was Miqo'te) Conjurer and would like to start out in Gridania. Why? For her to have control over the elements she needs to be close to the elements and Gridania being in the woods would provide her with that closeness with nature.

Class : Hyur

Race : Limsa Lominsa

Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

My race was chosen because I have hopes of capturing that bond that I had with my FFXI character. Just looking at a lalafell gives me a sense of that same feeling. Conjurer will be the class because I'm a magic type of guy and it looks like a very versatile class. Also I played as a blm in FFXI, and it will be fun playing with nukes again. Limsa Lominsa is the city because its a beautiful city. Also its surrounded by grassy areas which makes the city look even more wonderful. I look forward to talking to each and every npc that lives in Limsa Lominsa as well.

I will be playing as a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te Fisherman from Gridania. The woodland area is the perfect setting for my character and seems to suit the Miqo'te best. I was very fond of fishing in XI and hope to carry on the profession in XIV.

Thank you!

I will play as a SeaWolf Roegayden. Starting in Gridania. I want to play a bigger race so I can fully enjoy the armor graphics in the game. I want to start in Gridania because I think the selection of monsters could be very interesting since it is a forest environment.

With much luck my first character in Eorzea will be Spartacus! A born tactician and gifted warrior. A Midland Hyur born for the call of the gladiator reigning from Limsa Lominsa.

I feel he could do wonderful things unleashed in Eorzea to explore the diversity of the gladiator tree, seeking out the best abilities for an efficient kill

thank you

I will play as a Duskwight Elezen Archer from Gridania. The reason for the Duskwight Elezen is because I am an Elvaan (Elezen) at heart and the Duskwight Elezens appear to look good for the Archer job, and living in Gridania will give my Elezen more of a background to start off with as an Archer living in a forested area.

Wildwood Elezen and Gridania.

I will be making a Lalafel from Gridania. I want my character to be similar to that of mine from Final Fantasy 11, and I feel Gridania is fairly similar to the more nomadic feel that Windurst offered.

I will make a Roegadyn (Sea Wolves) Marauder in Limsa-Lominsa, because Marauders, to me, are outsiders, mercenaries, and fierce attackers, which Limsa-Lominsa is based upon (Pirates, mercenaries, bodyguards, etc.)

Race:Hyur Female
Class:Fisherman
City:Limsa Lominsa

I'm choosing This because i pretty much fished exclusively in FFXI and now with guildleves fishing is going to be on a whole new level of fun.
SO obviously,I have to start in Lominsa because that is where the fishing guild is

Probably gonna stick to Hyur female (was Hume F in XI), but I'm torn between Gladiator and Lancer as my starting class. Where I wind up starting has no particular preference at this point, and I have no trouble believing I'll likely choose based on what the character creator presents during that step of the process. It's more than likely I'll explore every nation eventually, as well.

my first character will be a dunefolk lalafell and i will start in Ul'dah.
i want to play lalafell as they are so cute and dunefolk lalafell appeals to me due to the zodiac gem on their forehead which looks like a 3rd eye to me.Ul'dah will be the center of the trading world in ffxiv and i wish to be a part of that.

I will be choosing Ul'dah as my starting nation-state. It was a tough choice; but since I will be partaking in crafting in the game, I figured Ul'dah was the more sensible choice for selling goods. Especially since it appears tantalizingly close to Limsa Lominsa. If my wares don't sell well in my hometown, then there is always the neighbouring nation-state.

As for my first character, I will be a Midland Hyur with pugilist being my starting class. Chakra is one of my favorite abilities in FF, and the ability to steal (on a monk-like character, no less!) is likely going to be a huge help for disciple of the hand professions down the road.

My first character would be:

Race: Lalafell Dunesfolk Female (Because I just love how they look and the charisma they have)

City: Gridania (Because I love nature and this is just the place my heart can feel like a sweet home for my char)

Class: Conjurer (Because I will like to help all those who need a good heal power at anytime)

Also I want to be a Armorer because in my opinion I think is the best crafting for help others.


Thank you Good Luck everyone and have a really nice day ^_^

I would probably be a Lalafell just as I was Taru in XI. Then I could retain a similar character, but with finer control over looks. I would join Gridania for aesthetics as I greatly prefer a forest setting over the desert and water ones.

I am planning on playing a female Huyr (midlander). My character will be a Thaumaturge but will also be an accomplished weaver. My starting city state will be Ul'dah.

Why?

I have always been a major fan of the magic classes in previous Final Fantasies, Thaumaturge with its "dark side" (so to speak) really gets me excited. As for the city state choice, The Thaumaturge Guild is based in Ul'dah so it seemed like the obvious choice, also something about an oasis type city is very appealing.

Character: Roegadyn Gladiator
Starting city: Gridania
Why: My main in FFXI was a paladin, because I love to tank damage. I want to do the same in FFXIV and maybe dish out some damage too!
I love Gridania's lush forest setting, and the design of the buildings in the concept art is absolutely fantastic. I love that the buildings are integrated into the natural foliage of the area.

My first character will be an Elezen Pugilist starting in Ul'dah. I'm starting with an Elezen because I had an Elvaan in FFXI. I never really used a Monk in FFXI, either, so I figured that would be an interesting choice. Since martial arts tournaments are held in Ul'dah, it makes sense to start there, as well.

Probably more than likely I'll be starting with an Elezen Gladiator in either Limsa Lominsa or Gridania because they pique my interest. Why? I always liked the Elvaan from XI and I feel these are the closest comparable things that XIV will offer since there seems to be no similar area such as San d'Oria that we know of yet.

I picked a Lalafell because I always pick the race that's shortest in stature. I chose Conjurer because of elemental magic.

I'm torn to be honest...

I almost always give archer types a try just because I like the way they play usually.

Race is where things get odd for me, I like Miqo'te but have never played a female type before. The Keepers of the Moon just look like they'd fit with the class well. If I find that doesn't work for me I'll most likely go Midland Hyur.

Hi there! :)

1. I can't decide between a female Hume or a Mithra... oops, I mean a female Hyur or a Miqo'te (seekers of the sun). But regardless, I want to start in Gridania and begin as conjurur.

2.My first character on FFXI was a Mithra thief and my second (and all-time favourite!) character was a female Hume summoner. Also I am female... I want to start in Gridania as I am very interested in becoming a botonist as my first trade and Gridania favours the goddess of harvest. If I become a Migo'te I want to be from the seekers of the sun because I think it's so cool how they can have different coloured eyes. :P

Thank you!

Thaumaturge, Male Miqo'te (If it’s out, otherwise Male Hyur)and I will be starting in Gridania.

I always wanted to play Mithra in FF11 but they never came out with a Male version of one, otherwise I'm ok with going Hume again. I want to be one because I'm an overall cat person and think they look cool. Thaumaturge seems like it would be really fun for being a support class as well it looks it would be fun to combine with a Tankish Class, (I'm not sure yet but I want to be creative with it). Gridania is just an overall nicely themed area to start in from what it seems.

I will be an Elezen and most likley start in Limsa Lominsa; I'm partial to port cities and I like the information on the ruling party there... though that probably won't affect the game much.

I think I'm gonna have to choose Roegadyn because of the ability to be a Hellsguard, which from what I know seems pretty cool, and my class will have to be a Conjurer. Definitely.
And I will start in the city state Gridania because from the concept art looks like a pretty nice looking place.

What will my first character in Eorzea be?

Undecided between Gladiator and Ranger. Not sure about race, just looking for a twist from what the "usual" picks were in the older games I played.

What Nation-State will I start in?

Looks like It'd be between Ul'dah or Gridania.

Why?

Never played this game, want to try something different from WoW, played a Hunter and a tank-based class, and am looking for the same style of damage-dealing/taking damage but with a whole new world and game-play. I chose Ul'dah and Gridania because forest-type environments and desert surroundings appealed to me most in World of Warcraft, and would be looking for a good place to start learning the aspects of the game in a familiar environment.

a Mage type Lalafell in Gridania

I've always loved Windhurst and forest like cities so I'd feel like home starting there. I always play Mage type classes because they usually are the ones that cary a lot of responsabilities for the whole group which makes it more challenging.

I haven't quite decided, but I was thinking of either doing Roegadyn Hellsguard male, or possibly a Lalafell Dunesfolk. I'll definitely be starting in Gridania though, cause it just looks so darn pretty! The Roegadyn appeals to me this go round (unlike the Galka from XI) cause they look less lizardy and more human. I played a Tarutaru forever though, so it's gonna be hard not to play a Lalafell!

As for class, Lancer first - since I'm a little worried about the MP regeneration situation at the moment - and a conjurer if the MP thing doesn't seem to be as cumbersome as I'm thinking it may be.
