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

I plan to play a Miqo 'te Gladiator - Keeper of the Moon. I am going to start in Gridania.

I loved my mithra in FFXI and want to experience new adventures as a wild forest cat of the night.

My first character is going to be Lalafell and I would like to start in Gridania.

I played a tarutaru is FFXI and loved the race! Just not the starting stats. Now that it appears to not make much of a difference in stats when you pick a race I would like to play the lil guys :D

There seems to be a lot of crafting and fun things to do in Gridania. I was also a Woodworker in FFXI and it just seems to fit as a starting town. Not to mention I could only imagine now amazing the forest looks in FFXIV!

First Character: Anything other than a lalafell(played a taru before)
Class: Botanist/Miner
City State: Ul'dah

Why?: I want to see if its possible to level completely to 50(cap), just doing DoL, or DoH, as well as whats the pro's/con's to having one in your party. Ul'dah seems to be a trade capitol.

Lalafell lancer in Ul'dah. Ul'dah sounds like a rough and tumble wild west type or a early Roman type city and I just get a kick/chuckle of a Lalafell being an outlaw character in such a place.

I want to make a Pugilist or Gladiator Miqo'te after playing a Monk Mithra for so long in FFXI.

I want to start in Gridania because it looks amazing with the forests in the game.

Thanks!

Hi there, first post! :)

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

I'd love to play a Highland Hyur that's a combination of Maurader and Lancer. Not sure which would be primary, but I'd be looking for massive, long distance hits. I want to play a Hyur because I'm guessing they'll be the most balanced of the races and I like the lore.

Where I start will depend on where my friends are probably, but I'd like to start in Ul'Dah. I always loved leveling in Altepa Desert in FFXI!

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

So many choices!!! I think my first character is going to be a male Duskwight Elzen as a Thaumaturge, and starting in beautiful Gridania. I played a Mithra for my many years on FFXI, and its time for a change! Being a tall **** Elzen defiantly fits my... aesthetic much better; and I'm excited to explore the new magic in FFXIV! I want to start in Gridania because I've always been privy to beautiful forests, and curious to discover what kind of secrets may be hidden.
Thank you! ^_^

My first character in Eorzea will be a Hyur Gladiator, and I will start in the nation-state of Limsa Lominsa. My reasons for these choices include my love for the iconic sword-wielding hero featured prominently in previous Final Fantasy games and my interest in Limsa Lominsa's sea-faring setting with its strong sense of adventure and exploration.

The plan has been to be a Sunkeeper Miqo'te starting in Gridania and playing as a Pugilist/Gladiator. Because Miqo'te are adorable, Gridania is the best looking place with the best looking storyline in the E3 trailer, and I loved playing THF in XI.
BUT I will first role in the other city-states to experience their opening storyline and look around, and I'm notorious for leveling slowly while trying out different jobs. I'm also getting tired of the constant sexualization/gender ****/obsession with Miqo'te, so I'm going to be spending lots of time in the character creator checking out models for different species.

Race: Wildwood Elezen
Disciple of War - Gladiator
why? -
The idea of being a "tank", the first line of defense between myself and my comrades, has always called to me. It seems as though gladiator will be the staple "tank" in XIV, with some abilities taken from Marauder and pugilist perhaps. Sword and board, all the way!

Nation-state: Ul’dah
why? -
I love the desert atmosphere, and it seems as though Ul'dah will be the center for trade. Not to mention, Gambling!!

I will be a Dunesfolk Thaumaturge Lalafell to carry on my magey Tarutaru roots. He'll be cute but he's also going to be a force to reckoned with.

I will be starting in Ul'Dah for the "fame, notoriety, power and money."

I will be playing a female Elezen archer starting in Gridania. I was a female elf in FFXI and Ranger was one of my favorite jobs. Gridania looks to be the most fitting place for an Elezen and will probably be the most appealing aesthetically.

I intend to create a male Hyur or Elezen Pugilist. My choice on race will ultimately be determined by which I find more visually appealing during the character creation process. I enjoy martial arts and brawler themed classes/characters so my decision for a disciple was easy. My starting nation will be Gridania since I've loved forest based towns/cities ever since Everquest.

What will my first character be? I will most likely be Miqo'te (Moon or Sun I haven't decided as I haven't played around with character creation yet) and I'm leaning towards Pugilist. I want to be Miqo'te because I usually go for whatever race is the most fantastical in any game. I like to play as something that doesn't exist where I can create looks that are far beyond what I see in my day to day. I like Pugilist because it's similar to classes from FFXI yet different enough that I want to see where it goes. However, I always end up as a support class so maybe I'll build up as Thaumaturge in the end :)

What city will I start in? I'm going for Ul'dah, since there is less information about it thus far I want to do some independant exploration :)

Hai!

Hrm.. Definately going to go Miqo'te, Gladiator with specialization in sword and board. I simply love tanking, and do so in many games. I want to test and see how the tanking aspect has grown since ff11, and if I will enjoy it as much here as I do in other games!

City of Choice? Gridania.. Forests always seem to be my element, and what better city to start a nature loving Kitty-girl who will bash in da face with a shield?

My first character in eorza would be a Hyur Midlander even though my first race in ffxi was a TaruTaru. I chose this because i wanted to have a stat balanced char to try all jobs. I chose Gridania as my city of choice because I wanted a place that looks like Sandoria which was my first city in ffxi.

For my first character I'll most likely play a Miqo'te Thaumaturge. I've always loved magic users, in all MMO's I've played. I'll be starting in Gridania. The artwork I've seen for that place looks beautiful!

I'll likely be playing as a Hyur Pugilist, as I was Hume Monk when I first started out in FF11 and very much enjoyed their versatile nature. Leaning toward Gridania due to its similarity with Windurst, which still stands as my favorite city area in any game I've ever played. :)

-The Elezen (wildwood). I started off as Elvaan in Final Fantasy XI, and will stick to it. It was my favorite race in FFXI, and i plan to have the Elezen be my favorite in Final Fantasy XIV.

What nation-state will you start in? Why?

-Limsa Lominsa. The island idea makes it unique or at least be next to the sea. It's the most beautiful city (in my opinion) and i also plan to do fishing and blacksmithing, so it doesn't hurt to have your city have those two crafts.

Miqo'te. Not sure yet on Moon or Sun.
Nation-state will be Gridania.

Why?
I played as Mithra in FFXI and prefer playing races/characters that portray agile predators that rely on speed and subtlety. And they're really cute.
According to the description, Ul'dah sounds like the perfect birthplace for my character growing up in the arenas as a gladiator.

I'll be playing a Lalafell, primarily because in person, I'm a tall person, and have a tendency to play characters that are very different from what I'm like in real life. I also like to play caster roles, so I will probably start as a Conjurer or Thaumaturge, although the Thaumaturge sounds more appealing to me, because I enjoy playing unique classes, and the Conjurer class seems like a pretty typical "Mage" role.

With the information I was able to gather, I think I would want to start in Gridania, because forest zones are more aesthetically pleasing to me.

In 14 I will be playing an Elezen, to continue my tradition as I had an elvaan in 11 for 6 years.

My starting nation will be Ul'Dah, it has a knightly appearance from what we've seen and reminds me the most of old school San d'Oria.

I have always liked tanking so I think gladiator would be a good pick as well as playing as smaller characters so lalafell will be a good race as for the city i think the pictures of gridania looks rather nice.

I am leaning toward being a Wildwood Elezen Gladiator in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?

The Elezen race looks pretty cool and seems fit to wield a sword. I was also a 74 PLD in FFXI and it looks like Gladiator will most resemble that. Limsa Lominsa looks like a great starting location because it is fairly centered on the map of Eorzea and also the scenery is awesome.

Definitely wanting to try one of the Disciples of Magic first, though the Thaumatuge sounds the most fun on paper. Race will most likely be Hyur with Ul'dah as the starting city.

I know it may not be the most exotic, but I usually roll with the most human-esque race. So the Hyur is the obvious choice. Ul'dah looks really neat based on what I've seen, I'll probably go with that one.

Class: Gladiator
Race: Elezen
Nation-State: Ul'Dah
Why: Interested in the class dynamics of the Gladiator.

Still undecided if I am going to play at launch. Have been playing MMORPGs since the release of Everquest. I put many hours, normally too many, into the games I play and beta test. I am interested in seeing if FF14 is worth a pre-order of the collectors edition.

My first character will be an Elezen Conjurer/crafting and gathering. Elezen mainly because I was an Elvaan in FFXI and I just prefer that race to the others. Conjurer because I have always played some melee oriented DPS and am tired of playing that type of class, I am ready for some type of spell casting DPS. Also I have always loved gathering and crafting in all MMO's and I just cant get enough of it.

The City State I will play in will be Limsa Lominsa. Mainly because it somewhat reminds me of Sandy in FFXI, and also because I look forward to the sea side city.

I plan to be a Plains Lalafell focusing on probably Conjuring and maybe a little bit of Alchemy off to the side. I want to start in the nation city of Gridania. The city of Gridania appealed to me because I've always been attracted to a lush green forest-like city and the scenery looks breathtaking from the E3 trailer and I decided upon a Lalafell because Lalafells look like a unique race with an interesting backstory to them.

My First character will be a Dunesfolk, Lalafell Conjurer. I will start in Gridania. I want to be a lalafell conjerer becuase i want to be a healer and always felt the Lalafell to the most gentle of the races, (not to say that all lalafell are gentle.) I will be starting in Gridanaia because i like the trees and general environemt of the area and see it as a great place to call home and get a good feel for.

I feel like in FFXI I didn't have a chance to play the Tarutaru nor start in Windurst. And in this new game I want to really experience a Taru like character in a wood type city. I always loved Taru's and the Lalafells really just grab my attention this time around.

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

My first character in Eorzea is going to be a Hyur Highlander Lancer. I am going to start in Ul'dah.

Why?

I am choosing a Highlander because they look like a race of hard-laboring men, like they welcome a day of hard work. This is appealing to me in a warrior class, and since I am uninterested in caster classes, it is a solid foundation for any of my alternative choices if a lancer is not satisfying to me. I am interested in playing a lancer because it has some remnants of the Dragoon, however, not the dragoon from FFXI, but the Dragoon from Final Fantasy's before. I will start in Ul'dah because of it's lore and that it would be, in that time, an engineering marvel. As an engineering major, I am very interested in exploring this nation-state. Also, out of all of the nation-states, this one is appealing because it seems like a noobie safe-haven.

Still so many things left to know! Guess I will have to start with something. Every time I start a mmo and try to be a dd or tank I always end up either re rolling or switching to healer. Its just who I am I guess =)

Midland Hyur
Conjurer
Bontanist/alch or Weaver
nation-state: Where ever the Weaver or Alch guilds end up at.

Elezen/Archer
Ul'Dah

Why?
Playing Elven for 6 years, I grew attach to my character. With the improvements to the Character Creation I intend to improve his looks, while keeping some of the feel of my FFXI incarnation.

Ul'Dah reminds me alot of Jueno back in the "Busy" days, I like the artwork/terrain, and I'm excited to see how the designers have crafted this "Desert Castle".
