Hi all, well i just got my game..and i'm really confused about starting race! i read many post who say the difference is minimal, at least after some level up, but i'm still confused and got many doubt for my class..because i want to habe 1 only character and my favorite class are tank(gladiator) and melee (pugilist 99% choise), so my bigger doubt is: i want a race who have balanced stats fot both class in endgame(i never play a mage job so main are always tank and DD).
Hope you understand what i mean, my english isn't really good! hope to see something who clarify my doubt.
my favorite race are: Hyur and Elzen (both version)...so if u can suggest between these 2 i really apprecciate it! Thanks ^^'fusin

The way levelling up works in FFXIV is when you gain a physical level, you get points which you are free to distribute among your characteristics however you like (and you can redistribute later, if you want). That's why race doesn't matter; the *only* characteristics determined by your race are the points you start with. You want balanced stats? Then choose balanced stats.

Over all, I would say go with what you like best in terms of looks. You have the ability to assign stats as you see fit. Starting stats are just a base to work off of, but by no means dictate how you have to build your character.

You seem to be looking for some direction though so here's some stats:

Midlander
Str 16
Vit 15
Dex 14
Int 16
Mnd 13
Pie 16

Highlander
Str 18
Vit 17
Dex 15
Int 13
Mnd 15
Pie 12

Duskwight
Str 15
Vit 14
Dex 15
Int 18
Mnd 15
Pie 13

Wildwood
Str 14
Vit 13
Dex 18
Int 17
Mnd 12
Pie 16

These are all the base stats of the races you mentioned. If you're looking to pick a character built for dd/tanking based off of starting stats, Highlander seems to be your best bet. I'll say this again though, you can build your character's stats as you see fit. Beginning stats are not what you are stuck with in terms of growth!

I hope, in the end, you pick something that you feel is right for you. Something you will be happy representing you in this game. Happy gaming~

You can reassign points, but only so many at one time.
