My first character in FFXIV will be a Miqo'te archer starting in Gridania.

I picked Miqo'te because they have a very graceful and elegant look to them. Gridania has a very beautiful natural look to it and looks like the perfect complement to the Miqo'te.

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

I'll be playing a Lalafell, grouping up with my cousin. The starting town will be over in Gridania selecting samurai as my first class to play. I've always loved playing that class in FFXI and hope to see what they changed or kept in the class with this new project of Square. I'll also be picking up blacksmith and goldsmith for anyone looking to get some nice weapons, trinkets and need a repair look up Sleepers. I'll give you a nice discount if you remember me from the link shell I was on in FFXI. You have to say what linkshell I belong to, cause I only had one. Bag space was limited for me in that game. The reason I chose Gridania cause I love nature, and I never really liked the desert much in FFXI, but I shouldn't judge it by that with out finding out. But, forest, trees, and butterflies is my preference. But, I don't mind heading out and switching points to other starter areas. Anyone else like to group up with me once the severs get back up cause my cousin and I are looking for a nice group of people to go and take on the world in the game. Within reason don't want to be taking on things 15 levels above us but would like to see the us win within the second or third try.

I thinks thats it until I know if I have a key or not for the game. Cya!

My first character will be a Lalafell Dunesfolk named Zax Wali, the last name meaning Helper, Disciple of the Land specializing in botany. He will reside in Ul'Dah and study local and foreign plants for cultivation. I feel as if my first character will mainly focus on crafting, and Ul'Dah suits that initial aspect as a seat of trade. I will branch on as a Pugilist for my fighting class, but will hold true to my crafting roots.


A chance to beta test FFXIV would be amazing, as I played FFXI for 4 years and have been waiting for FFXIV for quite some time.

will be playing as Elezen; I have always at heart been one with nature, and this race closely resembles the values I would like to see shown in many people in the real world. Proud and honorable as an Elezen, I will serve many across the lands.

The place I call home is Gridania, this will be my starting city, respect for nature and wildlife and atonement with nature are a big part of my character.

Race: Miqo'te (Seeker of the Sun)
Class: Archer/Musketeer
Starting City: Gridania

Why? Miqo'te look good! and have such good agility, they have been my favorite race since FFXI.
I like the setting of Gridania as well as all the taru that will be running around! it's such a warm environment, reminds me of the ff series
I would love to be able to give my feedback to square enix, as well as test for bugs!

thanks for the chance to be in the beta!

Race: Roegadyn
Nation-State: Limsa Lominsa
First Disipline: Marader
Second Disipline: Gladiator


I plan to play as a Roegadyn and will reside within the nation-state of Limsa Lominsa. I typically find myself playing the more brutish characters in MMO's as I enjoy RPing as a character with a tough demeanor. WIth that said, I'll choose maruader as my first Disipline of War, while also playing as a Gladiator as my second Disipline.

I decided Limsa Lominsa because this nation-state procures guilds that I am more interested in pursuing, such as Blacksmithing (and mining as the Disipline of Land) and fishing. Limsa Lominsa also resides around many shipyards and is a major city of port; which goes well with being a Sea Wolf.

For my First Character I am going to pick
Class : Conjurer
Race : Lalafell
Starting City: Gridania - (Artwork reminds me of Windurst from FFXI)

Race was chosed because it reminds me of the bond i had with my FFXI character. Of all the MMO's i've played Final Fantasy Taru Taru Characters are my favorite.
Gridania artwork looks amazing. I'm hoping it's as good as Windurst. Also I miss my Mog House :)

Highland Hyur Gladiator starting in Gridania. I think the Highland Hyur would look great as a melee class like the gladiator. I think that starting in Gridania would be great because I really like the look and feel that it brings so far. I like the style and think the forested area is an interesting starting place.

My first character in Eorzea will be a male lalafell. I will be starting in Gridania.

I first started as a Tarutaru on Final Fantasy XI and I really dont want to stray far from the game when I try Final Fantasy XIV. The race holds near and dear to my heart, and I believe Lalafell will also. Same with starting in Gridania. I want something that comes close to my first love, which is Windurst. Gridania and its earthy tones and laid back atmosphere, I believe, will fit right in for me as I start.

Having played a Mithra in FFXI, I knew from day 1 I was going to be a Miqo'te when the races were first revealed. I'm leaning towards either Pugilist, Archer or Gladiator for my class. With the flexibility if the Armoury System I'm not in too big a rush to decide until I get some actually hands on play time with the classes.

As far as what nation-state I'll pick, It'll most likely be Gridania. I loved the artwork that was released for it and the vibe it gave. Hopefully in-game will match favorably to it because it can end up being quite a beautiful place.

I will play a Roegadyn in the city of Gridania, with hopes of becoming the best Gladiator the world's ever seen. I've grown accustomed to playing larger characters in my MMOs, FFXIV will be no different.

Still haven't decided on Hellsguard or Sea Wolves...probably the Wolves just because being a Gladiator-Pirate sounds insanely cool.

3.I plan to begin as a Hyur because I have always loved the Hume from FFXI. I want to continue living by the polearm as I did in FFXI, and this time I plan to choose a similar nation to Sandoria (aesthetically speaking) - Gridania.

Zylo - Gladiator
This will be my main character. I am a tank. I hope to be the tank of tanks, that's all there is to it.

UL'DAH
I cannot lie I am an end game player and I am all about being the first the strongest and the most reputable. So what better place then Ul'Dah. The opening line says it all about this nation. "Everyone here is after something-fame, notoriety, power, money. Me? I'll have the whole bloody lot!" What else could I say that sums up everything that I want out of a nation that is where I will start no doubt about it.

I'm very indecisive, but if I had to choose probably a Hyur, as for the job I will try a little of everything, and I will start in Gridania.

Why?

Well because I was a Hume in ffxi I'll try Hyur in FFXIV, I do want to try Miqo'te thou.^^ I want to try a little of everything to get a feel of what all jobs do and then decide which I would like to stay with. Gridania just looks like it will be beautiful so I wanna live there. :D

Miqo'te Conjurer or Archer in Gridania. I really liked the Mithra in FFXI and definitely want to try the counterpart in XIV. As far as city-state, I would much rather go with the more Natural of the 3, both on account of the scenery and personal preference of liking Gridania more than the other two which seem to be much more Imperial or Capitalist in nature. I like the idea of the Archer and the striking power/utility that it appears to offer, however if the Miqo'te have any amount of magical inclination I will probably go with Conjurer as it seemed to have a lot of choices between potency and flexibility which is my favorite play style.

My first character in the game will be a Midlander Hyur Gladiator because I love swords and being able to protect other players or friends, and I like to be similar to my character rather than female or some other race.

I will start off probably in Ul'dah because it's very city-like and seems like there's the most things to do and see as an individual in both scenery and in activities.

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

My first character will be a Roegadyn Marauder and I will probably start in Limsa Lominsa.

I never got to play much as a Galka in FFXI, leaning towards more well rounded characters like Hume and Mithra, but I really wanted to try it. I'm looking for something new and exciting in this game and am picking Marauder to contrast the fact that I always played support classes in FFXI. The starting city of Limsa Lominsa is fitting to my characters race and, because it has gotten so much alpha and beta time, I believe it will be the most fleshed-out and expansive cities during release. Many players will be familiar with the city as well and it should be easier to start out in and get help if needed.

Good luck to everyone!

My first character will be a Lalafell conjuerer starting at Gridania. I was a devout taru in FFXI and would like to continue my adventures as a small person :) . Gridinia appealed to me the most, being there isnt a whole lot of information out there to begin with. Can't wait for Sept. 22!

My first character is going to be a hot pink-haired Miqo'te Pugilist named Nuia who hails from Gridania.

Why?

In XI I played as a mithra from Windurst and the city really grew on me. I just loved it's foresty feel and since Gridania sounds similar I'm starting there. My favorite job in XI was mnk so I'm going to continue to play my favorites in XIV.

Deciding my first character has been a really tough battle in my mind there are so many great choices. I think my first character will be an Elezen Pugilist in the nation of Gridania. The reason for this is that my friend is going to be a Lalafell Conjurer and I think it will be a great contrast for me to be so tall with him being so short and I can be sort of his bodyguard as we roam around looking for loot and guildleves! Well that's my little fantasy anyway, hope it's good enough to warrant a Beta, I was heartbroken not to get selected by Square Enix even though I've been an FFXI member since day one of its NA release!

My 1st character will be Lalafell for Thaumaturge. Cause in all ff franchise games, de-buff is always essential when trying to take down a powerful opponent, and thaumaturge is the class for this job in FF14. Lalafell is a small race, usually better at magic or intelligence.

Starting nation will be Limsa Lominsa, because 1st, I like ocean, and Limsa Lominsa seems like an easy place for new users to start with.

Also enjoyed the fishing in FFXI especially when you get to chit chat with near by adventures while you fish was always nice, Limsa Luminsa because since its a sea city i can start fishing right away. Weaponsmith to be able to keep my knuckle weapons and my companies weapons in top shape.

I'd like my first character in Eorzea to be an Elezen because I've always been a fan of the Elvaan race in FFXI and I like the tallness. I'd really like to be an Archer mostly because it was one of my favorite classes in FFXI.
