Anne Stickney

The first round of hotfixes for patch 5.4.7 have been released and posted to the official blog. The majority of the patch notes concern various bugs that have popped up since the release of the patch, most of which should now be resolved. While the Armory still appears to be a work in progress, players can rest at ease that their lost companions have apparently found their way home.
  • Battle pets and mounts that disappeared since the patch launch should be restored when you log in.
  • The Key to the Palace of Lei Shen should now be properly dropping from rare spawns and golden treasure chests on the Isle of Thunder.
  • An issue that allowed Death Knights to attack NPCs of their own faction if they did not complete Where Kings Walk or Warchief's Blessing has been resolved.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
