I chose Ul'dah because of the character I'm creating (Sunseeker gladiator). I thought once I saw Gridania that the decision would be tough but the lay out in Ul'dah is just too convenient. It's the new Bastok for me. Everything is just a few steps away. Gridania was huge and filled with corridors like Windurst. Really cool, but not in to spending so much time running around to complete mundane tasks. Limsa Lominsa almost made me consider not even playing. Cool looking city, but even worse than Gridania for convenience factor.
I don't know I just love Ul'dah. It's like Bastok Rabao 2.0 :D
Are you on Kashuan by any chance in a LS called Something Witty?
NM just saw your signature, i swear someone in my LS said the *exact* same words to me about Ul'Dah...I didn't find Bastok that compact tbh but maybe its because I didn't find Sandy too inconvenient, I loved Sandy that is why I'm picking Ul'Dah, its atmosphere kinda reminds me of it.
