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.

    How do you just get rid of something like that crater. Maybe some phasing will bring it back or something.

    That would realy great
    Not likely to happen. They said they want you to have a choice and no hassle with that choice, not one-man-swap-army-mcgayver.

    Sorry i just had to laugh hard at this. Try to level any profession from the AH. It takes less time but more gold


    About my first post, "would be nice" its an opinion, im not requiring such a refund. At least to me because i bought it for my 10 characters

    They also have much better Unix/Linux support. Dell's are cheaper, but if you have Linux on your servers and call support you might as just speak Swahili for all the support guys will understand you.

    Is that Baron Geddon? Are they pulling characters from existing dungeons into the overworld? That's really cool. I love interacting with bosses in some way before I kill them; makes the game much more interesting if a boss is something more than just a name and a list of spells they cast.

    About me, well, I want an Xp refund, because I leveled 2 chars during early vanilla, and then early BC and early wotlk. It was way more time consuming and I had to get more Xp, I want all of this back when Cata is out to get 1 or 2 free levels, 'cause I deserve it.

    Yup.
    Well said that man!

    And exactly which part of the servers did you pour coffee over to block people from Belgium visiting the site? Don't try blaming it on our retarded ISP's, we know it was you!!!
    (Seriously it didn't work yet today so had to be slightly less lazy and change my dns settings just to see this website, I demand a hug!)

    I'm still unable to normally see MMO-champion, I first thought the site was just down, only after asking others who don't live in Belgium I knew the site actually was up, I'm now using a dutch proxy, but damnit, it's annoying, any fix in the works for that?

    I would really like to see a triple talent spec option. Several classes (Warrior and Druid spring to mind) have three different talent specs for three different roles (in the case of a warrior - tank, raid dps and pvp). It's annoying to only be able to keep two of those at the same time currently.

    Might want to track down whoever racked those servers and break their hands so they can never rack a server again. I dare you to pull one of those servers out to replace the hot swap fan without shuting down the box. Oh??? You cant thats right! The moron did not leave enough cable to pull it out!

    Seriously, if your going to pay for DC space to rack your shit, demand they do it right.
