Character: Dunesfolk Lalafell, Thaumaturge

Starting Location: Gridania

I'd choose lalafell because having fell in love with tarutaru in FFXI, lalafell are the next best thing! I don't think I could enter a final fantasy inspired world as any other race. My starting location would be Gridania because the place screams Windurst to me and that was my favorite place back in Vana'diel. Something about Gridania just feels right to me, it's where I belong!

Probably Plainfolk Lalafell Conjurer in Gridania.

Love playing a small guy who runs around healing people.

I love the concept art of Gridania and idea of forest city.

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
-My first character will be a Wildwood Elezen from the nation-state Gridania.

Why?
-After playing as a Hume for 8 years in FFXI and always regretting not having been elven I am looking forward to switching over. I want to start in Gridania because I find it the most appealing to look at and I'm a sucker for well designed environments.

I plan to be a Hyur Thaumaturge from Limsa Lominsa. I've always enjoyed playing mages because there is a bit more strategy involved. All of the other races looked weird, so I'm going to start with something simple for now. Limsa Lominsa seems like a safe choice because we don't know much about the other two choices yet.

I'm going to create a Duskwight Elezen Lancer and I'll start in Gridania. I love the idea of forest areas with lots of rivers flowing through so Gridania seemed perfect.

I will be making a Hyur Lancer because it might make me feel like a Dragoon, which is a class I hope they will add later on.

I will start in the nation-state of Gridania, since it is the home Lancer like sentries, the Wood Wailers.

My friends and I have the Collector's Editions on pre-order, so we kind of have things figured out.

I plan on playing a Roegadyn Pugilist because, as my friends would point out, I jump at any opportunity to play a monk-type class in any of our roleplaying endeavors. I would like to play in Limsa-Lominsa for, perhaps, a more shallow reason: I was stunned by Yoshida's artist rendition of the area! The promotional art is currently my smartphone's wallpaper.

I would like to play a Miqo'te conjure who dwells in Uld'ah.

My reasons is in ffxi iI played a casting mithra and I miss having a tail. Not many other mmos have decent tails! The emotes were fun as well. Uld'ah seems like it would be a city with a very intrecite and layered story with interesting scenery.

My first character will be a Midland Hyur because none of the other races really appeal to me. I will start in Ul'dah because I like its picture (tattered flag, huge gates blocking off the city, etc.) and the description.

Probably going to start in Gridania because I like the forest feel and it kinda reminds me of good old Windurst :)

Hope to see you all there!

Highlander Marauder from Ul'Dah

Why Highlander? Great new "sub race". Looks to be half way between Hume and Galka, my two favorite races. What's not to like????

Why Marauder? GAXE GAXE AND MORE GAXE!!!

Why Ul'Dah? "Everyone here is after something - fame, notoriety, power, money. Me? I'll have the whole bloody lot." ~self-made Lalafell and Syndicate member, Cicidoa Sosodao LOVE IT!!!

My first Character will be a Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te named Vogue Lockhart. As a lover of felines, this race is definitely my favorite. Her skin will be tanned color with a bright light color hair, she will be a Pugilist as for her main class, punching things is fun and the capability of being a secondary tank will come handy as I will group up with an Archer most of the time. She will fish as a hobby and food provider. Her homeland will be the Limsa Lominsa, surrounded by the sea this nation is the best place for her to start her new adventure in Eorzea, while being able to easily find a place to go fishing it is also a great trading post.

Class : Gladiator

Race : Hyur

Starting City: Limsa Lominsa

Mainly because I was a mage in FFXI for 8 years. This time I want to be a tank and/or dd. Also sick of being a taru, smelling crotches and not being able to see over large rocks just gets old after a while.

My first character will me a Male Elezen from Gridania. My first class will be Thaumaturge because my friend won't be able to play until the PS3 release so I'm going to hold off on leveling archer (likely to be my favorite class) until I can level with him.

I'd like to start off by saying this is a great community, and I've been coming here since my XI days (I played starting in the original NA release week). More recently, I've been here every day (multiple times a day) hoping to find new shreds of news relating to FFXIV, lol. I hope to contribute to this community in the future using my past experiences with XI and the new things I find in my journeys in XIV. Now to the point of this thread:

What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in?
I'm going to start off as a Duskwight Elezen Pugilist from Gridania. I'm going to work on Blacksmithing, Fishing and Mining as my crafting and gathering classes.

Why?
In FFXI I was an Elvaan Ninja from Bastok. I'd like to continue in my Elvaan tradition this time around, but with a different feel than Bastok, which is why I've chosen Gridania this time around. Pugilist also seems like the closest thing I can get to being a Ninja in XIV (:(), so that's why I've chosen that class. In XI I didn't craft or gather much, but blacksmithing and Mining were the only two things I dabbled in, so I'll try that again. Fishing also seems like a nice pass time to take up.

Have a great day and good luck to everyone in this draw!

Mi'qote - Gridania

Why?
Even though I'ma guy, after spending about 6 years looking at man-**** on ffxi, I figure if I'm gonna be spending the same amount of time on ff14, I'd prefer to have a nicer-looking character.
As far as the forest, I liked windurst the best in ff14, and gridania seems to be the windurst equvalent

What I plan to start as and why.
Duskwight Elezen, because the way desripyion of them reads makes it seam like there could be a posible benifit to that race for Pugilist. As to the reason of why Pugilist its because I love evasion and it looks like for now that is the best job for it. On the down side eva is expensive so i will probly be leveling Weaver sinc it will probly have gear for pugilist.

What nationand why.
I plan to start in Gridania part of the reason is because i love the country and nature. For me it gives a since of peace and serinity. The second is because i feal that pugilist would be more at home in the woods then in a city. I see Pugs as out laws and perhapse part of it comes from the whole robin hood story as to why i thing that way.

I plan to be a Midland Hyur (the Hyur Gladiators look sick, and I love my hume in XI)from Limsa Lominsa. The landscapes and colors appeal to me the most of all the nations, and if I was going to take part in any of the guilds it'd most likely be fishing.

It seems like everyone and there brother wants to be Lalafell or Miqote and since I've always been a human type race I'll stick with Hyur. Need to diversify your XIV!

I'm choosing Gladiator for a job as well because I always wanted to level paladin in XI, but could never move away from my sam. I've even started to tank events on my Sam lately so being a legit tank this time around seems like a good idea to me. Not to say my Sam isn't a **** tank of course...

My first character will be a conjurer so I can be a healer and damage dealer when necessary.

I'll most likely start in Gridania because it sounds like in a small way it resembles the magic city of Windurst from FFXI and I love the natural sound of the city itself and the in-tune description of the citizens.

My first character will be a culinarian midland Hyur in Limsa Lominsa.

Why?
I would like to experience a different kind of gameplay than what I had in FFXI. I never touched the crafts available and would like to focus on that in XIV. Limsa Lominsa appeals most to me because of its location on the sea and because I think it's very pretty! I chose Hyur because not everybody in the world needs to be a miqo'te.

I plan to play a weaver because I loved crafting in FFXI and would like to have it as my character's main focus in FFXIV. As for race there is really no choice: female Lalafell all the way...simply adorable. And I'd like to start in Gridania because I've always loved a forest atmosphere, but if Ul'dah turns out to make more sense for my craft I may start there.

I will be a Midland Hyur for my first character and I will start in Ul'dah. The landscape looks very cool in Ul'dah and I have enjoyed playing humans in past mmorpgs. My character Barama Ramarama might be white, might be nubian...I'm still undecided.

As for where to live..... for me there is only one place......UL'DAH!!! everyone there is after something, fame, notoriety, power, money, me?? I'll have the whole bloody lot!
Fighting arenas gambling, insane desert landscapes!! Sounds like my kinda city, so heres hoping to see some of you there! I'll be the little crazy guy doing excitement emotes for days on end celebrating my beta dream come to fruition!

Gridnia - I like the outdoors, so a forest is nice.

I'll play a Lalafell Gladiator. Starting in Limsa Lominsa.

Always loved taru's in FFXI, and never got a chance to tank in end game so I am going to try out Gladiator this time. Limsa Lominsa looks really interesting and I enjoy the water.

I'll play a Midland Hyur starting in Gridania as a Botanist or a Conjurer.

Why?
I'll be beginning in Gridania because that's where I'm assuming those two guilds are. I'll be choosing to play a Conjurer because I played a Black Mage in FFXI and I'm wondering how Conjurers will compare. Botany seems like an interesting way to support myself and I may begin the game as a Botanist just to see how it is to play the non-combat classes, then switch to Conjurer later.

Highland Hyur in Ul'Dah. Starting as Pugilist or Lancer.

Why?

Highland because I want something smaller than Roegadyn, larger than a Lalafell, but not as effeminate as the Midland Hyur or Elezen. Pugilist or Lancer because they're a high DPS class that will probably be fun to level when starting out, though I might be tempted by Archer if they release Musketeer by retail.

Edited, Aug 10th 2010 7:21pm by Ezion

Ul'Dah because I think it'll lend itself to some cool storyline quests and mobs. It also sounds like a much more dangerous city than the other two, which should lend itself to some cool classes someone down the line.

I'll definitely be a Lalafell, since I was always a Taru in XI and adored them.

I think I'm going to start in Gridania, because I've always been a fan of forest cities in games.

And I'm thinking I'll start as a Conjurer, since I've always enjoyed traditional casters. After that, I'm gonna try Thaumaturge, Archer or Lancer.

The first craft job I'll try will be Weaver or Culinarian.

The first DotL will be Botanist or Fisherman, based on my DotH (or maybe the other way around).

Midland Hyur because they have a diverse livelihood and are seemingly close to humans with a good nature. My class would be a Lancer because the Dragoon Kain from FF2 was and has always been by hero.

Gridania - Looks like a beautiful city and plus it seems more the center of getting to and from places.

What will your first character in Eorzea?

My first character in Eorzea will be a Duskwight Elezen Gladiator.

What nation-state will you start in?

If I was able to pick between the three, Gridania would be my choice.

Why?

Well, I love the way the Duskwight Elezen look and the story behind them. Having to pillage and steal. Not because they want to, but because they have a difficult lifestyle and need to do so in order to survive. They endure hardship. I would be a Gladiator, because I enjoy being on the front lines and defending my allies, taking all the damage and risking my life for them. I would choose Gridania as my Nation-State because it's peaceful and located within a forest like environment. It reminds me a lot of Windurst. It's just an attractive city-state for me.

I think i'm going with Elezen in Ul'dah, my character will be an archer. I loved playing a ranger in final fantasy xi, after I had already leveled my ninja up. Looking at the new classes and changes, I was reading on I love what they did with the class and how they made it more user friendly.

Character: Elezen; Why? I find it easier to connect with an elf-like race (I rolled a Blood Elf in WoW and most MMOs I tend to pick elves over humans (not that I have anything against humans in MMOs, I just like a race that can specialize in magic and can, in turn, be self-sufficient.

City State:Most likely Ul'Dah. Why? Because it will most likely be one of the most populated, even if, by some strange circumstance, there are a lot of little kids playing in that city-state. Plus the more people there are in a place, the more likely I am to run into people who are nice, helpful and won't mind partying with me through Eorzea. Beyond that, the reason why I picked these two has more to do with the fact that I want to be able to make more friends with people, and the off-chance that I might finally find a guild I can truly feel acquainted with, without having to jump through fifty or more hoops. That alone is why I picked Ul'Dah over the rest, even if the majority of people there might pick races like the Humans, it just means I can complement people's parties all the better (even if I get stuck being the healer or the mage, I won't mind as I would be in a group that will work together efficiently).
