I have come to you all humbly for some sage advice. :( I know some of you probably won't care, but I'm facing a major dilemma. :(
Before FFXI my online handle was always OnionWarrior... then when I decided to start as a thief because it seemed more challenging, I changed it to OnionThief.
Now obviously in FFXIV there's no real "thief" persay, and it doesn't look like they're every going to add a class called thief (assassin, if it comes out, may be very thiefy, but it's not the same for me).
So here's the bottom line: I'm thinking about changing my character name to some other permutation of onion to better suit FFXIV. I'll list some of the contenders:
- Onion Gunner (for an eventual musketeer main)
- Onion Lancer (this caught my eye: http://hooffoot.deviantart.com/art/Onion-lancer-74148928?q=sort%3Atime+favby%3APandalee&qo=186)
- Onion Warrior (a return to the roots)
- Onion Bandit (an archer, like robin hood maybe?)
- Any other permutaion of Onion [Profession]
- Just stay Onion Thief!
I've basically deleted my character and restarted like 10 times already. I really can't decide. For me it's not "what's in a name", my name defines my character and how I think about it. I kind of like to sit there in class/work and daydream about FFXIV, imagining what type of adventures my Onion could be getting into... and these might change, based on what his profession is, of course. I've even been writing a short story (just for myself) to try and explain the transition of OnionThief from XI to XIV, how he got to Eorzea and such. It could also include an explanation of how or why his name changed. <_<
Please just tell me whichever one you think sounds best. ^^
Edit: HAVE FUN WITH THIS!!!
