    The difference between Hyur Midlanders and Northlanders is pretty substantial. Anyone notice any big differences between the other races' ethnicities? It looked like non-Hyur races just had palette-swaps.

    The Lalafells for example have a "glassy eyed" look on the Dunesfolk and an eyes with distinct pupils for the Plainsfolk.

    Each Ethnicity has it's own set of Hair Styles, Face options, Tattoos, Face Paint, etc.

    For example the classic hair style you see on with the trailer on the Miqo'te is only available on the Seekers of the Sun, and not on the Keepers of the Moon.

    Stuff like that basically.

    I didn't look closely recently, but in 1.0 the Miqo'te had round pupils on the Seekers of the Sun and slit pupils on the Keepers of the Moon.

    Nothing I saw was as pronounced as the phenotype differences for the Hyur though.

    Other way around actually. Keepers of the Moon also had longer tails and ears I believe. Then theres the general color differences.

    Also for names there was always IRFT: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/04/30

    Somewhat fitting with Dalamud and all that. Also this disgusting weather.

    Need 6 foot tall lalafel alternative.

    Exact same proportions. Or, all the extra height is in the torso and arms.

    Yeah, I kept a I Require Frozen Treats linkshell in 1.0. I have named all my personal guilds that since WoW.

    (Ever since I made the joke at an ice cream shop at Disney during an annual penny arcade forums get together.)

    Is that the Sonic-esque one?

    I think so? It's the one on the far left in this picture:

    Yup, it remains one of the most popular in FFXIV as well :D

    I'm partial to it myself but I thin i'm going with the one that has the long ponytail and the two hair pieces in the front framing the face. It's the one I used in 1.0.

    Hmm I don't remember being able to select it when I tried to make a Keeper of the Moon. They very well may have changed it though.

    You can get is for PS3 as well, and PS4 eventually.

    I wouldn't say we are struggling per-say, but we are in the middle of deciding on one. Right now we're in the "gathering suggestions" phase :D

    Since there is no time crunch we're giving ample time to make sure everyone has a say. We'll vote on the most popular submissions, then vote on the top two most likely. Or something to that effect.

    Candymancers is one the PA WoW guilds, right?

    In the same sweet spirit, why not Cake Pirates or Sugar Knights?. <CAKE> or <SUGA>



    I'm gonna get a PS4 so I hope I can play with you later. Maybe I will build a PC.

    They are going into a really awkward place with the Miqo'te designs. It it like they are the exotic dancer race.

    Do they still have that one white haired Miqo'te girl from the starting quests in Ul'dah? That was definitely a cheesecake character.

    So I rarely post outside of SE, but I figured it would be a Good Idea to post here too.

    If you buy the game via amazon, use the coupon code GOONCAVE for an extra 15% off. I don't know how long the coupon will last, but yeah.

    Also, do open beta characters convert to early access? Or is it just EA to release?

    Eh only with the starter clothing. Once you get them in pretty much any other gear (barring Subligar obviously) they don't have that vibe at all.

    They actually ARE the exotic dancer in Ul'dah though, so it's definitely a role they are set up to fill, but luckily the armor designs in this game don't really capitalize on it outside that starter outfit. So you don't typically see scantily clad Miqo'te running around in the game outside specific areas.

    They are certainly the most overtly sexualized race though, both Male and Female.

    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    The place I hinted at in my YouTube post was Toys R' Us. They have the CE still available to pre-order.

    No word yet. They'll let us know once people can start entering their codes for the pre-order stuff. I'm guessing it will either be at the start or end of Beta 4.

    That being said, all races wearing the more revealing armor is more revealing on both sexes. There may be cheesecake, but there is plenty of beefcake too.

    Ah such good childhood memories though, that was one of my favorite shows.

    You know what, even if not everyone rolls Miqo'te that is still an awesome name idea.

    That was my understanding at least.

    Is there a reason why they renamed the Taru's, Galkas, and Mithras in 14?

    They don't rename moogles in every game. They don't rename chocobos, cactuars, tonberries, or any of the other races/species of Final Fantasy. So why rename the humanoid races? Especially when they are exactly the same thing.

    Because reasons.

    You may as well ask why they ignored everything they had learned with FF11 when making FF14 1.0.

    I still call them by the old names. Which confuses the hell out of my g/f who never played 11.

    Yeah Delphin is right. Tomorrow I'll make a poll with all the suggested names. My original poll wasn't robust enough.

    Heh, I still call em Galkas too since it rolls off the tongue easier.

    I do refer to the cat people as Miquo'te though since it reminds me of peyote. :P

    And I also say Lalafell because, come on, it is just delightful to say. :)

    The Elezan I simply call elves, cause come on. And of course I call Hyur Humans since it was silly to give them a special name in the first place.
