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

Roegadyn-Hellsguard--Gladiator--Gridania
Because I love the big beefy races, and love to be up front holding the big uglies back,protecting the party. Chose Gridania because I love the Wooded Forest back drop. Would love to choose the mountainous Ishgard if it, is able to be chosen at start up.

Class: Pugilist

Race: Miqo'te

Starting Nation-State: Gridania

Definitely going to be Miqo'te for race because they have the more interesting background story and that
in terms of looks, they looks more preferable overall. I want to start in Gridania mostly to hopefully
avoid the crowd seen in Limsa Lominsa earlier @_@.

First Character will be a Hyur starting in Ul'Dah because that most resembles my char in FFXI.

Not completely sure but probably Midland Hyur, but will be Thaumaturge for sure. As for nation-state, Gridania.

Why?
Hyurs rule!, and Thaumaturge brings me back to my origins, since I started as a mage in MMOs to turn into a melee only later on, but spellcasting is where my heart's at. Finally, Gridania's looks beautiful

My first character: Highland Hyur
Nation: LIMSA LOMINSA

Why: Im going to be a Maruader first of all and to me I think Hyur in general are going to be a balanced race, then maybe I'll move to gladiator afterwards.

I'll play as an Wildwood Elezen because I played an Elvaan in FFXI and I have played Elf characters since EQ.
I'll play as an Archer and a Miner. The traditional idea of a Wood Elf, in this case Wildwood Elezen, as an Archer gets me in the role-playing mood. I would like to mine because I am from the hills of West Virginia :).
I would start in Gridania because I will be a Wildwood Elezen and I lived in Windurst in FFXI..so it seems like the natural choice.

My character will be a male Midland Hyur! Going to be focusing on either Marauder or Gladiator. And it's going to be from Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
Both my characters in Final Fantasy XI were male Humes. And why Limsa Lominsa? I think it looks interesting. ^^
#2860 Aug 10 2010 at 8:07 AM Rating: Decent
I've always been a Taru in FFXI and there's no way I'll be anything but a Lalafell. Just thinking about playing the game from a higher perspective... just doesn't feel right. I tried a friends Galka once and everything just felt so small... that's not for me :P.

Even though Square is trying to move stuff around, I'll always feel like they're those little playful group who loves running around nature... until you **** them off, then they fry ya with a solid Fire IV. So I'm totally starting in Gridania.

As for class - I dunno. Definitely returning to my nice trusty Weaver, but I'm fighting between Lancer, Conjurer and Thaumaturge atm. I'll probably end up trying all of them though.

Like everyone else - I'm totally wishing for a chance to try the game and potentially give my little bit of input on the game. Best of luck to everyone in the giveaway ^^.

My first character in Eorzea will be a Hellsguard Roegadyn Thaumaturge; my starting nation-state will be Ul'dah.

Of all the characters I had in XI the one I had the most fun with was my Galka Black Mage, and Ul'dah just makes sense since it's closest to the Hellsguard's home.

Why?

Roegadyn is cool, and Thaumaturge looks very challenging.

I'm gunna start with a Miqo'te 'cause they are cute, Disciple of magic because I want to kill things with fire, and lastly Gridania because my friends are thinking of starting there.

Also, a secondary reason for all of those is I enjoyed their parallel in FFXI. =)

I was thinking of playing a gladiator for FF14 because I played as a
dark knight mainly in 11 and would like to play a more tanking role.
I will also try mining and blacksmithing to compliment myself and
others with gear.

I would like visit Ul’dah because it would have more resources for
mining and I like the desert theme of the area.

Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te. Archer/Fisherwoman
Hailing from Gridania!!

Why?
I never played as a Mithra in ffxi and I have always wanted to! I have also wanted to play a ranger in ffxi but never had the money to fund the job. I can't wait to start in Gridania. It looks like a lush environment where a Miqo'te hunter would feel right at home! Also I'm sure its gorgeous :P

Race/class/starting city:

Miqo'te, Keepers of the Moon.
Lancer, definitely!
Limsa Lominsa.

Why?

I'm choosing Miqo'te since I always wanted to be a Mithra in FFXI but had put too much time into an Elvaan to start over. I'm choosing Lancer since it seems to manage party hate like THF did in FFXI combined with a more aggressive combat skill set. I'm choosing Limsa Lominsa for the fishing and cooking guilds!

I will be playing as a sea wolf roegadyn concentrating on marauder and fishing as my first two disciplines. Starting in limsa Lominsa seems only right due to the fact that the Astalicia (marauders guild) and the Fisherman's Bottom (fisherman guild) are both located there.

My first character will be Duskwight Elezen Pugilist the reason I have chosen this race and class is because I have always liked the elf and monk class in FFXI so I figured I would try them first in this on as well.

I will start in Gridania the reason I will start here is because I love the wooded area and I feel it seems right to start the Elezen in the nature where I feel they they belong.

I'm planning on a Hyur Marauder from Limsa Lominsa, who will moonlight as a fisherman.

I loved fishing in FFXI, I enjoy the name of the town, I can't really see myself as a cat-girl, a midget, the Hulk, or yet another elf, so Hyur it is. As for Marauder? Yeah pirates!

My first character will be a Miqo'te Lancer in Gridania. I choose this because I like the look of the Miqo'te since I will be staring at it the most as I play and have always been fond of Spear/Polearm classes. I was a Mithra Dragoon in FFXI and enjoyed it very much.

Class : Disciple of magic - Conjurer

Race : Midland Hyur

Starting City: Grindania

I would like to participate in the beta because I've been playing lots of MMO. But the main reason is that I've watched lots of video on the internet and I haven't seen many good video of mages classes. I want to try the new combat system for spell casting but more importantly I want to test the MP regeneration for mages and test how can mages can conserve MP in combat situation.

I'll be making a Midland Hyur, my disciples of choice will be Conjurer and Cooking with a lot of fishing as well. I'll be starting in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?

I've planned on working on fishing and cooking for many months now that I've been awaiting FFXIV, so when I saw that they were both guilds in Limsa Lominsa it was a no brainer. Im also a fan of the tall buildings :) As for conjurer, I love to play spell casters in MMO's so this fits me perfectly. I may change my mind over the next few weeks and start as a Thaumaturge, who knows!

I will be a Moon Keeper Miqo'te and my first class I will focus on will be Conjurer along with some DoH/DoL when I get tired of fighting. Why I will focus on Conjurer first is I like being a healer and on top of that I can also be a nuker with Conjurer. I'm not sure of which city to start in yet, I'll have to see how they all look and also see which city most of my guild friends are starting in. :)

My first character will most likely be a Wildwood Elezen. I am choosing Elezen because my first ffxi character was an elvaan long ago, and I have grown quite attached to the race. I plan to start in Ul'dah because the city looks very appealing despite lack of information and it also seems like it may be the least popular. I will probably make an archer, I don't usually play the ranged classes, but this time I feel like trying something new.

Hyur Conjuror Female in Limsa Lominsa.

Hyur because anime is influencing me to try FFXIV and they look like your typical anime human.

Conjuror because I like the spell animations and graphics I've seen from FFXI and the one benchmark spell was wonderful.

Female because I find the models attractive and the more I like the look of the character the longer I'll stay interested.

Limsa Lominsa because the water/rain droplets looked amazing in the benchmark so I'd like to see the city by the sea first.

I plan on playing as a lalafell lancer or pugilist. I was a taru in ffxi and because of the starting stats race wise was forced to play as my blm at most endgame events. Samurai was where my heart was so from what it sounds like race is not going to impact stats as much... cross my fingers.

I plan on starting in limsa lominsa because it looks like a good place to do some fishing with all the water!

Everyone is doing it! So why not.

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

In keeping the spirit of my previous character in FFXI I am opting to start with a Duskwright Elezen, and being in the nation-state of Gridania due to the hills and mountains that surround it on the map. Due to the character history of a Duskwright it only seem fit to being here, due to it being the native area one would suspect a Duskwright to be seen. Starting job would most likely be Pugilist or Lancer.

I will definitely be going Miqo'te this time around, most likely Keeper of the Moon depending on skin and hair tones. She will also be a botanist immediately to get a head-start on making that money.

The city I like the most would have to be Gridania, since the amount of sun from a port and desert city would be too much for my skin!

1. Lalafell Conjurer. I played a Taru BLM in FFXI, and I'd like to see the similarities. It was also a great character to play in XI.

2. Gridania. Nice Windy feel to it, appropriate for a Taru/Lalafell.

Definitely a Lalafell, because they're awesome, 'nuff said.
Probably a Conjurer, since it looks like the type of magic class I like, but I might go with Thaumaturge instead, if I don't end up liking Conjurer.
Proably Gridania, but it's hard to tell until I get more info about the various places!

Character: Miqo'te Conjurer

Nation: Limsa Lominsa

I chose Miqo'te because I really like the seekers of the sun tribe story and would like to get more in depth in it. I always enjoyed being a support class so, I chose to be a conjurer because it seems like the best choice for healer. The reason I chose Limsa Limonsa is because of the San'doria feel and, because San'doria and Bastok won a lot of conguest, I figured it would be one of the better choices if they implement a conquest like system. I like to win :). On a side note, I really hope you can do the story line for all nations like in FFXI. I was rank ten in all three nations and really enjoyed the stories :).
