Greetings! Um, funny since I typed one of these on the other site as well, but I can try and sum it up a little better now that I have had some practice.
I'm a refugee from several other MMOs, though I still actively play Tera, theres a list I have tried in attempts to find a solid community and have fallen flat. I was on EQ as a young girl and my next big MMO was Aion. After life kept pulling me in and out and the internal struggles of the community and massive server imbalances, I gave up on it. From there I played Tera which is just fun for gameplay reasons. I moved to try LotRO but didn't quite fall in, tried ESO only to discover the Megaserver made functionality of the game suffer and RPing even more impossible if you weren't solidified in an already established group. So my wonderful friend tossed me Archeage and poked me several times and now I have fallen in love.
My main is going to be a little Harani named Qilin, who i need to remake on Naima now, though I have an elf gal named Skaar as well. Admittedly this site enlightened me to the other four races that have me practically wiggling in my seat in delight. My first goal is getting my Harani established and figuring a good healer build for her. Though I really made her to be a multipurpose wandering tavern girl/healer... because I wanted to do the other aspects of the game like farming and raising animals... I may or may not suffer from random Harvest Moon addictions (._.)
Outside this... My life is actually kind of all over the place. Sometimes I have business that pulls me out so I'm not the most active but I do enjoy getting solid RP when I have the time for it. I am a fan of table top RPGs, comic books, anime, ghost hunting, theatre, pro-wrestling and a bunch of other weird stuff. I found this page via the FB page actually which I joined. I tend to open up a lot more once I know people a little better so sorry if I sound so dodgy on things.
Welcome to the community, feel free to help yourself to a cookie.....maybe avoid the strange green drink though as im not sure if its sentient or not :)
skaar sounds kinda firran to me but elves are a strange folk so im sure it'll be fine :)
"tahmoh likes the sound of Qillin, cant wait to meet and inquisit her for secrets" erm yeah seems tahmoh my firran character likes the sound of your harani healer so she may have a new if slightly unhinged friend in beta :)

I have an elf aswell, Rahne is her name though i havent really played her much in beta as the majority of folks are eastern based and i was enjoying playing tahmoh last weekend and forgot about the elf lol
i think wanderer put up some links to the lore for each race which may be of use if you didnt already check those out.
I've actually been browsing them. Thats what got me to pop in was the amount of lore help that is present on this site. Unfortunately diving in, one goes in with little knowledge, and after establishing ideas has to go back and find the lore to make it all fit. Luckily Skaar isn't too far off in anything I want her doing.
Oh I feel you also, I was pretty much fixated on my Harani. Then again I have a love for playing petite little races... and the double bun hair style -guilty pleasure- Though I'll be the first to admit I'm going to probably jump on fairies the moment they come out.. because... reasons. Iregretnothing.
Welcome to the group! I look forward to meeting you in game! Also healers are always welcome! As well as farmers. I can see Yang causing a lot of fun (problems) for Qilin! I already have a nickname for her... Hmm... I need to see her first though.
Heya welcome to ArcheAge Roleplay, it was funny reading your timeline of games that you've tried, I've pretty much had the same experience except with SWG and SWTOR included. Anyway I really hope you call ArcheAge home as many of the people here have!
