What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
The classes I would like to focus on in high-to-low priority order are: Marauder, Blacksmith, Fisherman.
The primary race I would like to test as is Roegadyn. More specifically, I am enthralled by and would choose the Hellsguard clan of the Roegadyn race.
Limsa Lominsa. I have chosen this city because, from what I am seeing, it is one of the lesser popular answers, and, thus, it will need more testing.
A short text of why you would like to be in beta.
I am a tyro to FF MMO-style which makes me a unique, diverse tester. Most players seem to be FF XI fanboys or hardcores. I will be different than this and provide feedback that is variable to a majority of the current testing community. It is fascinating to me that the game is so close to launch and the NDA is only recently being lifted along with a beta that is still on-going. I would like to assist in the efforts of the final push for my final fantasy of being in the final stage of the Final Fantasy XIV beta... final. On a more generic and honest note, yes, I would like to play this game for free before its release.
