Something that has come to my attention that personally I really hate in any MMO is when you start out and there are hundreds of people in that area. A very simple way to solve this is to make it to where there either isn't a spawning area & people are just sort of dropped off in the world to explore and do quests, or have multiple spawning areas.

I personally don't even know what I mean by this, but if there were any way to incorporate having instead of this one spawn you have tons? Because think about it. Argonians when you start off in a single spawning area and you see at least 5 people that look just like you out of 100 or more in the area. Then everybody goes through and does quests achieving armors, and instead of feeling all high, mighty, and unique in appearance for completing a quest to get this epic helmet, you realize that 50 other people have that helmet, 5 of which look just like you, who are strolling around doing the same things you are. To me, this is really frustrating and disappointing to feel like my items of awesomeness are so common, and everything I do is being done by everyone else around me just because we played the same race.

My question, would multiple spawning areas help this, or is this even a possible thing to avoid?

Well the server is divided up into kinds of instances of same area...so you select your preferences for being around people (eg "I want to solo", "I like to RP" etc) and you're put into instances with other like-minded people.

I don't think you'll ever find yourself completely alone in your own little instance of the open world, though in some areas you might not see anyone at all for a few minutes.

All new characters start in the same zone as every other race of the same faction. The starting zone is believed to be an island. So if you are a Redguard, Breton, or Orc, you will all start on the same island.
