I know this has been much discussed, but it's crunch time, and the open beta is behind us. I can't seem to decide much of anything - even forgetting which class(es) to focus on, because those can be easily changed.. Deciding which server when considering friends has me pulling my hair out. Which place to start at is also a tough choice.
Limsa was seemingly an easy choice for me.. I'd been set on Musketeer, I liked the seaside/pirate vibe, etc.. But there's no Musketeer, and I'm liking the other two cities more than I thought I would.
The music in and around Ul'dah is fantastic.. It's the easiest place to navigate (as well as being pretty gorgeous inside), and seemingly the best spot for travel given it's in between LL and Gridania. Looks to be the most practical. I might've had the most fun though, running around The Black Shroud as a Botanist. Gridania's beautiful, though it has some drawbacks.. The starting area's not as open as the others, so you've got tons of people packed in - and we all know about the aggressive mob issues when there's no option but to go through them.
How many others are struggling to settle on how to start out?
