Well I don't know what sparked this random question in my head, but here it goes! Let's say the developers were going to take just 1 npc from FFXI and put it in FFXIV. Who would you choose? Would you choose them because of something they did in a mission (ex. Prishe). Would you choose them because you just liked how they looked? Would you choose them because of a helpful function or fun quest they offered (ex. Mog house moogle, or Maat for limit breaks if they were in FFXIV.) Explain your choice!
I hope you get the idea! Even if FFXIV doesn't support what the npc did in FFXI such as picking let's say a garrison starter npc, it's okay just pretend if you brought them over their function would work.
I would pick Ajido-Marujido from Windurst Walls because I really liked the summoner class and would like to have one in FFXIV ^^.
