    Differences between selecting Grand Companies?

    Does anyone know the main differences as to what makes each Grand Company different from one another? Why would I choose Grid, Uld, or Lim?

    I currently have an archer main so I have chosen Grid as my Grand Company as it is my main city and assumed that my archer will benefit from the Twin Adder as far as gear goes.

    Did the Devs release a detailed compilation of the Differences or do we have to figure out for ourselves our wait until 1.19 is released?

    Storyline. Join the one that you would feel proud to be a part of when you finish the quests. If you are in just going to press enter to vet to the loot faster then anyone cause all will get access to the dungeons and battles that get added. As for the items in their shops then I believe it has been officially said that all will have a bit of everything for all the classes to enjoy. Hope that helps.

    The confirmed difference is that there's is a supposed "bonus" for completing missions (probably Ifrit?) if everyone is from the same nation. This will unfortunately prompt most people to choose Uldah... Also, it's possible that each nation may only offer gear for specific jobs as they do currently. Right now you can only find Gladiator gear in Uldah.

    Same nation as in everyone that is completing the instanced mission has to be of the same nation for better rewards?

    This only applies to the lv25 (mission/quest) fight. This is not true for the hyper/hard mode fight that gives the weapons/good stuff.

    As far as the difference is, only aesthetic Grand Company gears (the new Overcoat and Trousers) and the NPC for the time being. All the other GC equipment can be bought before fully joining GC.

    Dont forget that in future events/battles, you get a bonus for having a party made up of at least 3 different company members.
