Just realized something about P4Follow

The road map says that p4 data will be saved. Does this mean that, for the purpose of this discussion, the start of p4 is technically the permanent start for any characters created or revived from 1.0 (let's assume the data isn't wiped in p4, though it's a possibility)? So if I want my 1.0 character to start in LL at launch, this means I MUST start as mrd when p4 begins. This also would imply that whatever name and appearance I choose for my 1.0 character at the start of p4 is permanent. Is this correct?

Yep. There is a caveat that they may need to wipe things but they're intending to carry that data over.

Both, If you have a 1.23 character and you play during BP4 your progress will be saved and you will be able to access it on release, in the case that BP4 is wiped, the data of 1.23 characters will be at release.

I believe they said arcanist will be available in P4 if that is what you're getting at. So you'll be able to start as arcanist.

I wonder if P4 will have the voice overs during the first cutscene after character creation?

Though the chance is small, is anyone else worried by a potential wipe after P4? I'd hate to get my character just right only to have it wiped.

No b.c I think they will only wipe if something goes terribly wrong. You never say 100% yes to a customer b.c you can never be 100% sure when it comes to MMOs and potential problems.

No, because that's the risk you take when dealing with testing. I'm actually quite pleased they're even entertaining the idea of keeping character data.

Will LEgacy players change their names and looks in P4 too though?

I didn't think you were. I was just clarifying in general.

Not sure about that. I was thinking they would let us continue with our 1.0 characters in P4 and then on release let us have a one time change of name or appearance. It's too soon to make a decision if my character is going to change from its long time Hyur (Hume) look that I've had since 2006 (FFXI>>FFXIV).

Even if the wipe does happen, you will probably be able to save your perfectly selected appearance via the Appearance save screen. I doubt that will get wiped since the whole point of saving your appearance is for this very reason.

I forgot about that. Good thinking!

I believe I read somewhere that at early access/launch legacy characters would have a one time chance to change the appearance of their characters. I don't know where I read it though, so take with a grain of salt
