What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
Character: Roegadyn Gladiator / Blacksmith / Armorer
Why?: As a veteran FFXI player, I enjoyed every aspect of the game. Square Enix truly graps the concept of an "epic" adventure, unlike other MMORPG developers. Now the reasoning's why I chose a Hyur Gladiator is mainly because of some of the screen shots I've seen of high level Gladiator's and it just blew me away. I've always wanted to play a more crucial role in a group, rather than the generic damage dealer class; not to mention, finding groups will be a lot easier.
When I do make my Gladiator, I will be making a Roegadyn. Mainly because when I think of a Gladiator, I think of a brute, who thinks of nothing but his sword and shield. Roegadyn's seems to be the only choice when fulfilling the role of a 'tank'.
For my nation-state, I chose Grindania mainly because of lush concept art depicted in the FFXIV's website. The concept art of Grindania instantly caught my attention over the other Nation-states.
Thank you ZAM for giving people an opportunity to beta test. I will be checking my email on an hourly basis!!!
