My Big Problem with FFXIVFollow

No Auction House? ...No. The UI lag? ...What UI lag? Getting one-shotted by a big snake thing for 2,740 points of damage in a starting area??? Maybe!

My REAL big problem is trying to pick a race. =[
I still haven't made a character I'm gonna want to stick with for 7-10 years.
I can't decide if I want to be a Midlander Hyur (who, like me, is rational, intelligent, and very charming) or something else...
I am kind of crazy in real life.
I love singing! I wish there was a singing race. I'm gonna be famous some day.
I have red hair. But, it's not red, like orange, like a ginger... It's RED. Like a red-velvet cake!
I'm very different. I'm pretty wild.
I like Wildwood Elezens 'cause they have neat hairstyles. That's what I don't like about Hyurs, is they're kind of boring...and I'm not boring at all. Nope. Not by a longshot.
But I'm not tall! I feel like I have to be tall in real life to be Elezen and I'm just not! And there's nothing I can do about it!
I wish the Hyurs had better chins, too. None of them have a chin like me. Well, some of the faces do, but the jaw structure and chins just don't match up for me.
I would be a Lalafell, too, but I'm not short, either! I'm average!!! AVERAAAAAGE! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
I'm pretty muscular, too, but...I'm not big and fat like a Rogdayaneanena. They seem kind of mean, too. Which, I guess I'm a *****, but I'm not mean... Maybe obscene and rude, but not mean.
I like boys.
But I DON'T WANT TO HAVE BOOBS! No way I'm going to be a girl. Especially not a cat-woman.
You hear that, all you cat-avatar'd men??? I'M *** AND I DON'T EVEN WANT TO LOOK LIKE THAT. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU???!!!!
Oh, and the Highlanders...their faces...they're...grotesque.
I just wish there was a race for me.
I want to be fun! Love and fun and joy and peace for alllllll yaaaaaaay!
I love all of you!
Less fighting and more hugs!

And now, for a real post;
How did you pick out your character? I need help. I need some inspiration as to what I should base it on. Fill me with your inspirational juiiiiceeeesss!!!!!!!ooohhhhhhh

Well hello there.

I have to admit, your post made me laugh, a lot. hahaha

As far as picking a class goes, there were two things I took into consideration:
1) Base stats. I played a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te during beta, but realized later that the Seeker of the Sun has better stats for physical characters. The numbers aren't really that far off from each other though, so I don't even know if it's that big of a consideration
2) Personal preference. As you've stated quite clearly, you're *** and don't want to be a girl. I'm straight and don't mind playing a female character, especially a cat girl...

Some people will obviously think that's weird. I don't. You do. It's cool. Just pick whatever you want. If you're having that much trouble with it, I ... really don't know what to tell you, XD sorry.

I always try to make my character look as much like me as possible (so all the non-human races are always out). Managed to do a decent job of it with my Highlander male. The quirks of SE's limited and rigid customization kind of irked me though (why do I have to have a design carved into my hair if I want a buzzcut? Why can't I just have a plain ol' buzzcut?). Things like that.

I guess having my character look like me makes it easier for me to project myself onto it. Makes me feel more like I'm really that guy...I'm a part of the fantasy world. With any other character appearance, I'd be more conscious of the fact that it's really just me controlling a set of polygons in a game.

I'm sorry if you find the fact that I'm going to be famous some day funny. I'll be sure to ban you from all of my international tours.

Base stats are...pointless? In this kind of game, right?
I mean, after I level up twice I can pretty much level out with any other race, ...RIGHT?
I mean, there's only like a 1-4 point difference on any race with any given stat...RIGHT??
I mean, it doesn't go up without you telling it to go up every time you level, ............
...
....
....


...
....
..RIGHT???

I think that's kind of hot. Let me know if you're into dudes once you become a woman.

I just don't want anyone to think I'm "that" kind of *** guy, because I'm not.....

I totally eat this!

I was this way in FFXI, but it worked out a lot better, 'cause I actually did kinda look like the guy I was playing, even with his limited models. I guess I got lucky... But all the dudes in FFXIV...I dunno...they just look...Asian...Eck.

I respect that, though. MINDSETS UNITE!

I love the game!
But I keep deleting my character once I get to rank 15 or so, hahah, and making a new one.

I need some more varied opinions on how people know they're gonna stick with their character!
