Ten Ton Hammer has the skinny on the details known so far, as well as some speculation as to how things will play out come launch day in our Final Fantasy XIV Playable Races Overview.

Speculation: Miqo’te will be plentiful as early surveys of Final Fantasy XIV fans reveal a keen interest in playing the catlike race. Male Miqo’te may exist as NPCs but will not be playable.
