MMO-Champion - Server Migration, Dual Spec, Char Screen, Hyjal
If you can read this news post, you're on the new servers!
As mentioned yesterday, we finally started moving the servers to Curse's infrastructure this week. We're still moving a lot of stuff and some pages might be down for a little while but ... we're there! It means we can finally start planning funny updates to the site, and, well, a lot of bug fixes. We also have a couple of shiny pictures, thanks to Xtek.

Dual-Specialization Price Reduced
The price of Dual-Specialization has been lowered in a recent beta build, it now costs 100 gold and new players who reach level 40 should be able to afford it without too much problem.



Character Selection Screen - Built-In Theorycraft
In Cataclysm, the character screen will let you check easily how much of stat you need to be capped, calculations for Expertise, Hit Rating, and a few other stats are available. This will probably save you a lot of time when you try to figure out if you really need that extra hit on your shiny new epic.



Build 12804 - Mount Hyjal Update
Mount Hyjal received a very interesting update in the latest beta build. If you visited the zone or looked at screenshots during early beta, you probably remember the huge crater called Archimonde's Vengeance. Well, this subzone is gone and has been replaced with a greatly improved version! The crater is no longer there but the key NPCs of the questlines are still around.

    Cheap respec! Coolguy.

    Been buying it for 1000g for all my alts but that's still a great bone to be throwing to new players who don't already have 80s. =\

    I really like the new built-in rating buster and that subzone looks amazing.

    Did they finally fix the bug with premade chars tradeskills? (JC/ench are only usable the first time you log in. Massively annoying)

    omg i waste so much gold (at least 9x dual-spec) but for new players definately a good change

    Grts on the migration, nice servers, should take a load off the old ones
    Now they are done with that they can start fixing things and hopefully i can read the rorums again with my old and crappy browser that is still mandatory within my company (ie6)

    Hyjal looks great, all of the new/revamped areas look awesome... cant wait to explore it

    Nice and all, but what abou the lore? what about the Horde base that had been there and, I guess, going by the crater that was in the game for like forever, been totally destroyed and turned into the crater by Archimonde?

    Curse's servers... :P or well, MMO-champs servers to Curse's place.. I assume!

    Also, awesome changes to mount hyjal!
    Nice thing with dual-spec..

    Yay! Does this mean we will get new forum ranks soon?

    Hyjal is looking very pretty. Makes me excited about Cata each time I see screenshots from any of the changed or new zones.

    So, Dual spec really is being lowered. I may just wait to give it to my rogue then, but I went ahead and dual specced my paladin anyway, even in the knowledge that they may lower the cost. No big deal, really.

    The added theorycrafting that shows percentages of each stat needed in order to maximise your output is good. It should mean fewer threads asking things like, "Wuts da hit cap fer casterz ?". >.<
