The scale of the zones certainly impresses, especially compared to the relatively small zones of the previous expansion, Echoes of Faydwer. Of course the fact that Angur (Adurj's alt and my adventuring buddy for the Kunark content) and I have been gliding across the landscape on our komodos has helped highlight the size and scale of the area.

The quest design and flow throughout the zones seems to have been honed to perfection with this content, and I'm finding it a vast improvement over the Faydwer zones. Of course there is great fun and enjoyment to be had seeing how places I loved to adventure in the past have been updated. My first trip to Karnor's Castle was a blast, and it was good to see that it remains as tough as the original (most EQ2 zones now seem to be easy mode for the most part). So far I've made it to level 74 and I'm now exploring the Fens of Nathasar, so I'm almost half way through the content. I've still got Chardok and Sebilis to explore as well, which will again be a blast of nostalgia.

Right, that's all for now. Next week could be a busy one for Star Wars: The Old Republic updates as the game is being shown at San Diego Comic-Con. I'll be sure to have all the latest information from the con gathered and posted here (assuming the new baby doesn't arrive first!).
