When I beta tested 1.0, I went with Llymlaen because the background seemed to fit in nicely with my choice of Seawolf Roegadyn Fisherman.
Picked the same one for ARR, but I'm not sure if that'll be my final answer for phase 4. Trying to decide on one for a Hellsguard Pugilist who has intentions of eventually going Dragoon.
