Character Creation[edit | edit source]
When launching the character creation tool, the player may choose to create a new character or load existing character data. This data can also be loaded from the beta and retail versions of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and data from the benchmark can likewise be loaded into the final game, if the user would like to spend time creating a character before logging in to the game proper.
The player may choose to have the created character appear in place of the default male Miqo'te paladin in the benchmark cutscene.
