"Fast patch" 4.1.0a patch notes

Just when you think you're used to the way things are going, Blizzard releases something new. Today's notes aren't a list of hotfixes; they're a "fast patch." This means when you log into World of Warcraft, you're going to have a mini-patch to download -- and it also means that some major issues are being addressed, including one that's been bugging raiders and anyone trying to use AoE spells since 4.1:
  • The targeting reticule for AoE spells and abilities like Magmaw's chains should no longer disappear when players cast spells.
  • Animations while mounted should work normally again. Say hello to your ponies, they're now moving correctly!
  • Character legs should move properly when the character is moving.
See the rest of the notes for 4.1.0a after the break.
