Can you "change nations"?Follow

I haven't had much time to play the open beta yet, so I was wondering how you pick up the opening quest line-- if at all-- from other nations. Do you just go to the local adventurer's guild, or maybe there are triggers (like boarding the boat to Limsa for the first time)? What do you get to see in the way of cutscenes from the other countries? Surely as important as the intro cutscenes will eventually be to the story, there's a way to view them all on one character? I hope this is something that SE has already considered and implemented.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

The intro story line is ABOUT your character, it doesn't make sense that you can be a new adventurer three times..

Ever play FFXI? They had no problem treating you like a noob when you changed nations, or started a new mission line, or really any time at all. Pretty much the only NPCs you weren't a fledgling adventurer to were the ones you had proven yourself to through the story.

That said, the intros are as much about the NPC characters as they are about you. Those NPCs will undoubtedly appear as major story characters, and it'd be pretty odd if they expected players to create new characters just to see those scenes-- scenes that will almost definitely be relevant later in the story.

But if nothing else, I'd like to know if and how you can start the equivalent intro quests (e.g. Treasures of the Main) from nations other than your starting one.
