So the way the game stands right now, choosing a city really only makes a difference up to 15 and then you're out there in the world doing things as they come, and then Grand Companies matter most. But, what about future patches and expansions?
The reason for my questions is that I will be bringing up a SMN as my main, but I love the Gridania NPCs, city, storylines, and everything. Now, I've done it in 1.0 and I've done it in beta, so if I decided to start in LL to make it easier on my SMN I wouldn't mind going through that storyline. But if future patches and expansions are going to bring us back to our home cities rather than GCs I may want to stick with Gridania and hoof it over to LL when servers come on.
Anyone have any thoughts or insights, or better yet developer comments that might shed some light on our futures?
