I will start out as a Galka GLD as I look forwards to seeing the heavy armor. I will be starting in Limsa Lominsa as it reminds me of Sandy from FFXI

My first character will be Henry Jamfalcon, a Hyur Pugilist/Tanner from Ul'dah. A pillar of fire in the desert, his devastating onslaught of fists will cease only when the sands of Aldoran are outnumbered by the ash left in his wake!

I would choose to be a Duskwight Elezen pugilist, because I liked playing as an Elvaan in FFXI and I prefer the design of this character model over the Wildwood Elezen design.

I would start in Limsa Lominsa, because I enjoy the sea and the scenery should be excellent with the improved in-game graphics.

I'm definitely going to be a Hellsguard Roegadyn and start as a Thaumaturge. I've decided to start in Ul'dah. The description of the city, the ossuary, the fighting pits, and the surrounding regions are very interesting to me. I also have been fascinated by the concept art of Ul'dah ever since it was released. I cannot wait to explore the mysteries of the desert and make new friends!

Starting city: Limsa Lominsa

I want my FFXIV experience to be exactly like FFXI, PINK BIRD SPAM GO!!!!!!!!!!!

Kidding, I actually like the human look this time around, and a city on water reminds me of Jeuno.

My first character will be an Wildwood Elezen starting in Ul'dah.

The reason I am choosing Ul'dah is due to it appearing most like San d'Oria which makes me feel most at home.

* What class? I'm thinking about playing Pugilist and Archer. Maybe some Goldsmith and Fisherman to make me some gil.

Going to start as a hyur pugilist. This will be the first time I pick the standard "human" class in an MMO. I plan to start in Ul'Dah, mostly because the idea of a city in the desert is pretty cool, and I like the way the city looks from the websites concept art.

What will your first character be? -Midland Hyur -Lancer

What nation-state will you start in? -Ul'dah

I have chosen Midland Hyur because I like to relate to the character I have chosen and out of all of the choices the one that i can relate to the most is clearly the Midland Hyur.

I have chosen Lancer simply because I am big fan of the other Lancers of the series and because I am a melee DPS at heart :D.

I have chosen Ul'dah as my nation-state because I am sure that it will be visually stunning and also because it should be a much more unique environment than those in Limsa Lominisa and Gridania.

Hello! This thread got busy quickly.

I'm planning to be a Mi'qote of the Sun, and start in Ul'dah. I was originally going to try out Hyur even though I was Mithra throughout my FFXI time, but the more I see of game footage, I think I'd prefer Mi'qote still. ^_^ As for Ul'dah... There's something I've always loved about the charm of desert locales, and the city being a Vegas-type sounds intriguing as well... even if it might not be what's most native to the Mi'qote. ^^;

My first and hopefully only Character (assuming no extreme racial traits) will be a Lalafell Pugilist. I will start in the nation of Gridania. The nation-state description reminds me of Windhurst and I am hoping there are fishing and cooking guilds within. As for being a pugilist it is quick paced combat that keeps the dps rising and seems to be more involved than mana burn -.O. I was a 75 Taru BLM/WHM in FFXI and want to try something other that a magic class, at least until they add additional ones.

My character will be a Hyur Archer from Ul'dah! I want to make him look a lot like my FFXI character, for sentimental reasons. :) I already have his name planned out, but I still have to pick a surname. I loved playing my hume in FFXI, so it's a natural choice to make, but I never played Ranger in FFXI so starting out as Archer is something new I want to try!

My first character in Eorzea will be a Miqo'te Moon Keeper named Riza Satsukiame. I'll be stating in Ul'dah! I really like things related to the moon and I've always been a kitteh girl in most roleplaying situations... I know...I'm so nerdy! I choose Ul'dah because I like the setting and the story behind it.

I'm going to play a Miqo'te, Keeper of the Moon. I will test myself as a Lancer, Pugilist, and Archer and see which discipline Menphina has destined me for. Gridania will be where I call home, for now... Finding me there on a regular basis is unlikely, the walls of a city are no different to me than the walls of a prison cell. I will not be bound by walls, and certianly not by the laws of civilization, I will run free. I will be guided by the laws of nature, and the blessings that I find while hunting and gathering in my forest home will provide me opportunity for strengthening my prowess in the natural studies of both botany and alchemmy.

My character will be a Miqo'te, with perky fun ears and a long plush tail. She will carry a sword and shield, defender of the helpless and vanquisher of darkness. She will also carry a precious needlework set used to design the most fabulous clothes in all the land, when not confronting the ills of society, of course. She grew up in the woods but will start her adventures in the high mountains of Ul'dah, hoping to extend her name across the whole land eventually. This is both who she is (XI) and what she will become. And, she really would like to do what she can during the creation of her new world. Please help her.

My first character will be a Roegadyn Pugilist from the nation of Ul'Dah. I chose this combination because in FFXI I liked the Galka race and loved playing Monk, so those went together no problem, and the city because it seems a lot like Jeuno, so I would think it would have everything readily available there.

What will your first character in Eorzea be

My first will be Miqo'te because i love cats and they have made the faces so pretty and appealing and the emotes are really well done.
She'll be a Sunseeker because I prefer the eyes with the cat-like pupils and want to give her a warm brown skin tone.

What nation-state will you start in? Why?

I'll be starting in Ul'dah because the city sounds really interesting and a little diffrent to the usual cities found in games. A sort of Arabian nights flavour with a little Vegas added with the gambling.
I love desert scenery and also the weavers guild is in Ul'dah which is going to be one of my main professions.

Gridania looks like I might find it a little claustraphobic with all those trees and winding walkways (plus i dont like heights hehe)

Limsa looks just a little lacking in atmosphere for me and i have no interest in ships or fishing.

I played many MMOs, and always been a tank.. so i guess ill be tanking again and from what i read gladiator is those that look to be the tanks. The starting city choise is mostly because i like the fantasist look, and from what i saw this one will be the coolest ^^

I Gigglefart am a proud Lalafell and will resume my adventuring in Limsa Lominsa of course. For that is surely where my long lost Moogle is awaiting my arrival. It has been 2 long years since I wandered from my Mog House in Windurst and I am sure that my Moogle is absolutely sick with worry as I have only checked in sporadically over that time.

However we have discussed at great length the possibility of joining up again in new lands for new adventures.

I'll be picking Wildwood Elezen starting in Gridania. I've always liked the look of elezen type races (I was elvaan in ffxi) and I like the idea of having my origin be the forest (hence the wildwood sub race and Gridania starting city). Plus the pictures of Gridania are too amazing to not have that as my starting city.

My main class will probably be archer as I enjoy attacking enemies from far away for lots of damage. I appreciate the subtle strategy that must be used when dealing heavy damage without drawing too much attention to yourself.

What will your first character in Eorzea be:
For my first character in Eorzea I'm going to be creating a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te. She will be a conjurer, since my gaming style has always been based around being a healer.

What nation-state will you start in? Why?:
Gridania would be the nation-state I would select for my starting nation. I would choose Gridania because of its preeminence of trademarking in the world of Eorzea. I plan to as well work toward becoming a high level weaver, and I feel Gridania would be the place to start out.

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

To start I think I'll be a Male Wildwood Elezen in Gridania. I've always been drawn to the "elf" like characters in MMO's and Gridania seems like the perfect place for an elf. The woodland surrounding it looks beautiful, it will be a nice place to learn FFXIV (and kill bunnies outside of the city lol). I think I'll be Wildwood because I like the brighter characters in games. The Duskwight just look depressing.

As far as starting class goes, most likely I'll be a Gladiator, I've always loved tanking, with fishing being my source of money. It made me a pretty penny in XI so I'm hoping it will do the same in XVI. The down side is I think I'll have to make the trip to LL to go to the fishing guild... but we will find out for sure on Sept 22, or sooner if I get into the beta :)

I will be a Midlander Hyur in Limsa Lomisa. First of all, I love ocean cities and scenery. I would make the decision on that point alone. I also plan on playing as a Conjurer and a Fisherman. Limsa Lomisa has the fisherman's guild, which is where I plan on spending a huge chunk of my time.

I plan to create a male Elezen pugilist and I will start in Limsa Lominsa. I'm choosing Elezen, because I was a Hume in FFXI and I'm looking for something different this time around. As for the starting city, since the beta so far has been mainly around Limsa Lominsa, I believe most people are going to choose one of the other two nation-states. I'm hoping this will make Limsa Lominsa the least overcrowded nation-states, making the early levels a bit easier.

Likely Ul'Dah. Conceptually it sounds a lot like Bastok, for one, which is the only nation I never started at in FFXI. Aside from that, there seem to be tons of screen shots and information from people who started in Limsa Lominsa -- I haven't seen much, if anything, from the areas around Ul'dah, so I'd like to see more.

I'm wanting to be a Hyur Lancer because I feel that spear users are under-represented in most MMOs. I like the idea of having a class dedicated to polearms.

Left to my own devices, I'd probably choose Ul'dah. I'm not too hung up on a starting area though and will probably just wind up playing wherever my friend wants to go.
