Patch 5.4 hotfixes for November 18

A small round of hotfixes for patch 5.4 have been released and posted to the official blog. Before you get too excited, several of these hotfixes require realm restarts to properly complete. However, today's list includes a few tweaks for shaman, one fix for Paragons of the Klaxxi, and a ... unique problem with a Battle Pet that has now been addressed.
  • Zao, Calfling of Niuzao, has been quietly convinced that he is not, in fact, the Headless Horseman, and will now make the correct noises when using his Charge ability. This will take a realm restart.
  • Shaman, Stone Bulwark Totem's damage absorption shield should now be properly affected by both Battle Fatigue and Dampening.
  • Xaril the Posioned Mind should no longer be taking credit in combat logs for attacks cast by players that were under the effects of Canned Heat. This will take a realm restart.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
