What race/class did you pick for FFXIV?
« on: June 24, 2013, 01:21:45 PM »
The topic title says it all. I'm interested in your initial race and class choice for FFXIV.

I picked a Mi'qote Archer. I like it so far, but I'm also going to try out other classes once I figure out how to change them. :D

I'm definitely going to play a female Mi'qote (Seeker of the Sun) again, with roughly the same looks as I had in 1.0.
And as for my classes I'll probably be going the Archer/Conjurer combination again. Always loved playing as an Archer and I like playing the supportive role in a team. And both of these classes upgrade into supportive jobs being Bard / White mage ;D

Those 2 will be my main classes, though I'm definitely going to try out the Arcanist as well and to level up the Conjurer class I most likely will be going semi Thaumaturge (Black Mage) as well, so I can take over some damaging spells to the Conjurer class. The latter dependence whether or not I'll mainly be levelling solo/duo or in a larger group.

What's the main difference between Seekers of the Sun and Keepers of the Moon, anyway? I went with the former.

Apart from appearance only stats are different. IIRC Sun Seekers are more suited towards melee classes while Moon Keepers towards magic.

I'll still be a Female Mi'qote PGL->MNK as in 1.0. As for 2nd class combination I'm still thinking about it.


Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.

Its mainly a visual thing, though in FFXIV 1.0 there where also a few minor stat changes. Depending if you where a Seeker of the Sun or Moon some stats got +1 or -1 compared to the other (so in other words nothing apart from a visual aspect).

Its been like this for all races. I believe the biggest difference in stats are +4 compared to other races (so -2 for a weakness and +2 for an strong point). Might affect you for the first 5 levels, but after that those stats are a 100% ignorable.

I'm gonna go with a Dunesfolk Lalafell Lancer/Dragoon. I also like the Black Mage, so that's going to be my secondary class priority.

So in an overview we would get the following.

Username          Race             Main Class               Secondary Class                  Team role
ChaosMi'qoteArcher/BardDamage Dealer/Support
Da_CloudMi'qoteArcher/BardConjurer/White MageHealer
OniangelMi'qotePugilist/MonkDamage Dealer
SixtyElezenPugilist/MonkWarrior/PaladinDamage Dealer
RoachWizardLalafellLancer/DragoonThaumaturge/Black MageDamage Dealer


Doesn't sound to shabby to me. And if Sixty is planning on becoming the tank during the team fights we already got a decent composition ;D

Haven't really went to deep into the team compositions of FFXIV. But my main guess would be that the basic composition would be 1 Tank, 2 healers and 3 damage dealers. With the other 2 roles being filled in depending on the fight itself.

A friend of mine will join us too. No idea what he wanna play though.

I'm gonna guess main team comp would be: 1 Tank, 1 Healer, 1 Support/Debuff/DoT and as many DPS as needed.

That would just depend if i have the time to play the game enough so i don't find it a waste of money to pay for something i don't play often.

I'm gonna be a Hyur Lancer/Dragoon and not too sure what i'll be for my Side Class. I know i'll most likely be playing on Odin (EU).

I'm already playing with a bunch of friends and i really don't want to balance between servers. It'd be good if everybody was on the same server but they seem to be set on Odin (EU).
