MMO Gamer has posted a very short article with some first impressions of EQII: Rise of Kunark:
The starting area in Rise of Kunark is a fine addition to the lands of Norrath. This helps with those of us that like to level up alts. The more starting areas, the more you don't have to repeat the same quests over and over. Any EQ 2 player will definitely get their moneys worth out of this expansion. If you are new to EQ II this is a good expansion to start with as it contains all prior expansions and adventure pack add ons.
