No if good you have to start in New Halas or Greater Faydark (Felwithe) you can not start in the Towns anymore. I think forest Ruins and Elddar grove is removed too. Start a free to play toon and go back and look around.

The new starting zones suck and the cities might as well not even be there.

No, they removed Freeport and Qeynos as starting options. You can however move there as soon as you feel like it. Also the adventure zones around the city are still available for early levels.

I returned to eq2 lately to see how it changed.

Yes, if you are good aligned, you can cross the water at the first raft and head up the snowy hill pass into town, through the spider cave to the mariner bell. From that bell you can go anywhere, including Qeynos.

 

The suburb zones that used to be there no longer exist. I was a little disappointed to find no baubbleshire or starcrest commune. Your beginning housing quest can set you up with a free room at the inn in south qeynos and you can kill lesser mobs in peat bog for a few levels until you're ready for quest series in the caves or just go out to antonica around lvl 8-10.

I miss the Isle as well.  I wish they would have expanded it and made it larger.  Since I have mostly Fae I started a lot in Kelethin. My later Fae characters and anyone new starts in Gorowyn now with one person that started in Halas just to try that out.

Halas probably has the most interesting new quest chains.  I like Gorowyn because it seems more neutral than evil.  I never liked how good and evil were done in EQ2.  I see a lot less good and evil in the various races and a lot more differing purposes and cultural clashes.  There are some evil empires and all, but I just don't like how they over-emphasized it and drew such start contrasts.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Spelling and grammar do matter.I find your lack of real-life skills disturbing.

Aside from Gorowin, you can reach any starting area with a little running at level 1.

New Halas: raft across, run up to the town backdoor then down to the docks.

Kelethin: run to the city and go up the lift.

Neriak: run to the city and down to the dock.

Gorowin: run to... okay, swim around the nasty island, run up to the griffon perch, fly to the city, run thru it to the docks.

I created a level on toon in Halas and went directly to Qeynos. Had a great time levelling in the old areas. Yes, the caves, sewers, ruins and swamps are all still there to level up in with quests.

You can change citizenship to Qeynos but requires some traveling.

I never saw the big deal with the starter isles.  I think they shoud have been kept in as other options, but I never brought any toon there after Gfay and Neriak opened.

 

I do use the zones like Oakmyst Forest and Sunken City from time to time, and those are still intact thankfully.
