And do you plan on recreating them in FFXIV? I don't, but I remember them well...

My first character was Krayt. Windurstian Tarutaru. Main job was Dragoon with Warrior and White Mage as sub-jobs. My wvyern's name was Oboro. This guy was awesome.

I quit for a while and came back years later and made Mace, a Sand'Orian Hume. Samurai/Warrior. I had planned on making him a Ninja at some point but I retired from the game before that.

Not going to recreate but my only character was Skinwalker the Dancing Mithra. Proudest moment was soloing DNC to 75. Could usually be found fighting EXP parties for mobs or camping NMs to attempt to solo Smiley: grin

That doesn't sound like too bad of an idea...Despite my short run in FFXI, I was rather fond of Titus, my San d'Orian Elven Monk/White Mage. I think I might reincarnate him back again as a Duskwight Elven :3

hehe i miss my nina it was super fun to play.

That was the job that i pushed to it's limits. I showed people nin could DD just as hard as other DD's (not for HNM and stuff, but merit parties/missions/quests/random difficult NM's). I also tanked like a boss, using my own way of tanking, and giving some of those high end paladins a run for their money.

The hardest thing i ever tanked on ninja was bahamut V2. It definatley wasn't the cleanest fight because as /drk i wasn't allowed to cast stun, but it was definatley a challenge. I had to fill the roll of tank that run because our paladin just couldn't do it for some reason. The LS leader admitted he wasn't expecting to win and was impressed lol (we didn't burn it, LS wanted a video of the complete fight).

lol i wasn't expecting to go to nostalgia town today. thanks for making me glad ffxi was my home for so long.

No. I was a Hume THF to start in FFXI.

I always regretted a little bit not picking Mithra when I saw their SA/TA numbers.

Granted when you play a game so much you start to focus on the minutiae and really we're only talking about maybe 200hp difference, but at the time it was a huge difference as all of the greatest THFs were Mithra.

---

So this time I'll pick a Miquote just in a weird honor/respect sort of thing for a more dexterous class, although I've heard that racial stats don't really make a difference.

I actually went with mithra over taru because I figured if I was going to be staring at something for the next few years it might as well be pretty.

There's that too. I didn't want to be a female character (as a male) because I didn't want to be harassed, and the name of my first character Kierkegaard, didn't really make too much sense as a female, lol.

Now the only thing I need to think about is the name. I'm actually not a fan of the name/surname, but I'll probably go by the lore/naming handbook thing I saw that was posted on the Lodestone a while back...

My character's name in 1.0 was Hawaiian. I actually have 2 names in mind for my new lalafell, both pretty silly but it is what it is.

My character in FFXI was Bartel. Since then, I've made a Bartel in every mmo I've played, including XIV 1.0. I will continue that legacy in ARR. Not necessarily because I think it's the most brilliant name ever, but because of the sheer nostalgia of it, and because that's what most of my gamer friends know me as. That, or Dave. (gasp, my real name on a forum! Oh the humanity!)

I do the same. I'd imagine a lot of people do.

In almost every MMO I've played I've been Kovu/Covu. FFXIV was the first time I used 'Broken Fox' because of the First name/Surname system. It was inspired by Gray Fox from Metal Gear Solid Smiley: cool

My first character Arowen, was a human female from Bastok. Some guy in my LS convinced me that if I wanted to be a great DRG someday that I'd have to reroll Elvaan. I did and I ended up hating my character.. after reaching 75 with MNK, RNG, and THF, I ended up rerolling a Mithra BLM named Zanarkand. She only got to the 40s before I quit. I hated that goofy Elf.. his animations were ridiculous and he ran like a turtle.

Going Mi'qote right off the bat, just as I did in 1.0 and sticking with it. I like furries.

My FFXI Character was an Elvaan named DamienSlvrblade. He had the blonde chilli bowl haircut. I remember picking it primarily because it had the youngest looking face out of the bunch. I doubt I would make my FFXIV character look the same, as there is probably going to be quite a bit of that going around already, but we'll see how the options look. I doubt I'll use the same name since I'm sure no one would remember me from my hayday 5 years ago. Much to my surprise more than one time I had players think my name was "Damien's lover, Blade" >.>. Besides, from what I've gathered whispering people seems like it might be a pain in the *** in FFXIV (at least it was in 1.0) so I have a feeling that having a super long name might hinder your progress somewhat.

Indeed XD. **** you 15 character limits! I had to shorten it to DamienScott for Wow's 12 char limit... then my name got flagged for not being RP enough for them >.> so I had to change it to Ðamien (wow, I remembered the alt code lol).

It did look decent in the party window though, it was abbreviated to Damiens...

I think I'll only be sticking to the same jobs. I'm waiting for Samurai to be introduced...most likely will be in an expansion, which may take a while. I didn't put much thought into my FFXI name because I really wanted the option for a first and last name. I will be a Hyur, though. My FFXI character was Hume.

My XI name was Katara because I wanted a Mithra, but in most games I go by Anakte. I created Katara for XIV but I'll either switch her to male Miqote or Male Elf on release if I don't like the design of the male cats.

My Legacy character is a re-creation of Catwho from XI. Down to the same darn hairstyle. Coloration is slightly different, though. XI's Catwho Tarutaru is in a soft nut brown color scheme with brown hair and brown eyes, while XIV's Cat Who Lalafell is a desert gal with mismatched glowly blue green eyes and brown hair with exotic blue highlights. Very pretty, but very eerie looking too. She stares into your soul!

Ornlona Westowyn (or however that last name was spelled, need to find that thread again) will be completely unrelated to any of my XI characters, since she's a Roegadyn. (My Galka boy in XI is named Hundredbynebill.)

My character too is a pretty close recreation of my character Edy from XI. Seemed wrong to not use him again but with the new customizable options we are hopefully going to get I might do some slight alterations - he will be 7 years older now after all!

Two of my IRL friends started playing FFXI after I did and both had awesome names. My best friend wanted to be a Thief at first so he named his Hume Stabymcbackstab. His brother also had a Mithra Thief on his account and he named her Fouker. They should have played the same character in retrospect (also, he is pretty ghetto). The other friend made a Tarutaru Black Mage named Demoniccookie. He got a kick out of playing a Taru since he was 6'3'' IRL.

Apparently all three of us enjoyed making use of that 15 character limit.

Ronyn was my main. Elvaan RDM 75 with all appropriate subs (whm, blm, nin etc). I most likely will use the same name with the addition of a last (if that is still implemented?). I'll probably create two other characters as well. Three characters for each city-state. Barretjax and Shadowfax (names of my secondaries in FFXI). Again, with the same last name. Definitely Elezen male for main and still undecided what my secondary characters race will be.

My ffxi character was a bastokan hume named joedirt, and I'm pretty sure he has the record for most random /tells from people running by.

My 1.0 character was an elezen male named Schneider Weiss, which is one of my favorite beers. I thought that was a great name until I started getting messages from every german on the server asking if I wanted to group with them.

My ARR character is going to have a random fantasy-esque name!

I played FFXI for so long that when I try another race it just feels off somehow. I played Elvaan Red Mage and Black Mage. In 1.0 the only way I could play and not feel like my character was odd was to go with all the same, with the exception of the hair style. I wanted to change things up and that's all that didn't seem off.

I made the shortest mathra with pigtails named Urahara. I started off with plans of leveling smn. I was told I needed another job to be able to get all the avatars with. So I was going to level dragoon. I was told you needed a mage sub so I stopped drg at 30 and started leveling rdm to be my sub. I loved it so much I kept leveling... then meriting rdm. I loved the utility of it. Being able to handle things alone. I leveled drg bst dnc and finally smn. Had whm and rdm for group play. Urahara seemed to mimic me irl. I was always broke and loved to be in small groups or solo. I miss the feeling of exploring new zones with death lurking around every corner.

Am anxiously awaiting to get an email about ps3 beta so I can start my new adventure.
