Wow!!!!!!! I think we just got a treat into the starter intros for the other 2 city states. Makes me want to create a char and start each area then delete them to see which area grabs me the most. C'mon sept 22 or open beta with access to each starter area. I also noticed that hp pools seem to be much higher which is nice. Never understood how in ffxi mobs could hit us for more than double our max hp and we only averarge 1300-1700 base depending on race and job.
PC is done preorder is paid in full. Just waiting for the day to play.

Yeah the starter scenes for each city have been shown now I think. I also wonder if you would need to make a character to play through each cities starting scene. I would hope this not to be the case, and maybe they all tie into the story. Please DO NOT READ
beleow this if you DO NOT WANT info on starting city cutscenes
. I am going to post possible SPOILER staring city scenes.
We saw Leviathan flying over the ship and the jelly fish attacking many times by now I'm sure, and this is believed to be the start cutscene for Limsa. The hands-on game review here from FFXIV Core and another one I saw but forget the name, show the possible, and from what they are stating, most likey scenarios for Gridania and Ul'Dah. POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELEOW!!!
Both have been shown I believe in the Main trailer, but just not the right context. Gridania starts out with a flying airship and it crashes, and it involves meteors in the sky. It then goes into the scene that we have seen with the giant tree, and Moogles come to the rescue with some form of magic. I think Gridania will involve Titan in some way, but is just conjecture, and trying to piece the trailer scenes together.
Ul'Dah's staring scene is the parade scene from the main trailer. Something involving Ifrit takes place, possibly an attack of some sort. This then frees the captive Goobue from it's magical confinement and has the new adventurer fighting it. The story then continues from there.
I just pieced together the scenes we have seen from the trailer, and made some conjecture from the game hands-on previews as to which city they belong to. I did not in any way intend to ruin the storyline for anyone. It is information that is already out there and is based off of possiblities, not facts. This is intended to help build excitement for the storyline, and in sad anticipation that we may not get to see them all. Edited, Aug 18th 2010 6:14pm by Tolerance4u
FFXI (BST 75, RDM 75, BLM 75, BRD 75) (along with many subs and cherished friends)
And on the 7th day God created Miqo'te.
On the 8th day God saw that they were sad and lonely, God then threw down a Squarenix staff member and thus was born the male Miqo'te.
