OMG OMG OMG, these characters look amazing! And here I was hoping there would be some new images soon that I could use for a new banner since I choose to use only text for now. Though it'll be awhile before I get a new one complete, as I'm really tired from this theme change the last two days.

Anyway, the Miqo'te: Keepers of the Moon ~ 'drool' and like the first thing that came to mind was, "I can be a Drow Miqo'te" ...hell yeah! The other pics of Miqo'te are to drool for as well, not to mention most the other racial pics are simply jaw-dropping in the variety of choices revealed. Even the Elezen look insanely amazing!

Midlander

  • Majority of Hyuran, which is has large population.
  • They live in different towns and villages,and their vocations vary.

Oh btw the Japanese site has also been updated with new music, the classic crystal theme; which sounds too me like it has a slightly different twing to it...hehe

I'm now really torn between the two clans of Miqo'te. The Moon Keepers look really nice but I might go Sun Seeker if the Moon Keepers can't have heterochromia. Also, the bottom female Lalafel for the plainsfolk reminds me a lot of the Selkie from the CC series.

Yay! I was hoping this was going to happen. Though now I think I may go with the followers of the sun. My husband of course says "duh...you get so moody when it rains and if you don't get sun for a few days I need to put you under a lamp to get you to perk up." Heh guess I should of thought about that.

I was originally thinking the followers of the moon but I think I like the color pallet of the sun followers better and after what the hubby points out it seems a better fit :P

Edit: Doesn't anyone else think the new music (on the Japanese sight, you can download and listen to it on the FFIXVcore sight or whatever) sounds really familiar? (Like FFXIII familiar?) I like it but that is a tune I know because it is in my FAVORITE Final Fantasy on the console.

Gonna save my char name first, then play with it! Unless they would do like Vanguard where you choose your race, class and name; save the character and then can edit it! That is of course should I not be chosen for beta and have my name saved already which SE mentioned the other day, or from XI if I'm not playing then!

Yeah I was going to do that, and actually it would be nice if that was an account locked feature anyway, that every char you make retains or are forced to use the original sur name you choose. Doubt it but it'd help with weeding out the tards that reset faster, so they'd have to delete back to nothing to hide again.

The Lalafell animation in that video are for sure too damn Kawaii...I may have to make one just cause to run around with. Heck from the looks of it I may just have 5 characters ~ one for each race, or 6 if there is yet another race to be revealed.

The Elezen, especially the Shades look impressive and I may have to make one...

Must say, the Dunesfolk raised my respect level of the lolfails, now there are so many different things to choose from I don't know what I want anymore x.x it's like shopping on a limited budget. On the plus side, plenty of time to decide I guess lol

Highland Hyur...

Cus Shah can't read...

He can talk you out of your livestock, turn quiet Tarus into bloodly rioters, and make off with the President's daughter in the wee hours of the night...

but he can't do Red Fish Blue Fish One Fish Two Fish...

That requires my friend (and fellow roleplayer) Bayushi to step in and read.
