So have you guys played #FFXIV yet? It has a very generous free trial and the early game does a great job of acclimating you to the gameplay and setting. Definitely worth a look if you like RPGs and strong story-driven experiences.
I started out with a Miqo'te Archer. Archer's a good class for new players, very easy to understand if you're not used to MMOs and you want to take your time learning the various systems.
I'm an aspiring #gamedev who occasionally pretends to be a writer. I believe very strongly in free software and the free market and oppose censorship in all its forms.
