I predict there will be one newbie (ie start zone) There will be less races and classes then EQ1 or EQ2 (ie only one type of elf race etc)
EQN is a game being made on the cheap with less development time as well. They will consolidate and dumb it down ie remove un-needed extras and choices that would otherwise require more money and development time.
Hope I'm wrong but this is SOE and that's always the way they and Smed have rolled.

To be fair, older games took longer to develop generally because the tech to support them did not exist. With SoE collaborating with their Forelight team, and storybricks for rolling quality content out fast, I could see their development times being a lot shorter. Not to mention their decade worth of software development. Many systems may already be in place, and just need a bit of tweaking.
Sadly I never stayed in Nek forest as a newbie. I was either in GFay or freeport - even with a dark elf character. Most of my buddies were very much interested in crushbone - every time, until 10+. After level 10 or so, we would branch off to ec, wc, or a variety of other places. Even though I didn't spend a lot of time there, it should still exist. Having a game with too much content is more appealing to me than not enough. Finding out that someone has progressed in a completely different way is wonderful.
The newbie log is being replaced with the newbie totem. it looks exactly like a shaman totem from WoW, just to troll people =P.
