Patch 4.2 hotfixes for July 8

A weekend just doesn't feel like a proper weekend without some hotfixes and tweaks to lead it in. Today, we've got a smallish list of new hotfixes for patch 4.2 from the official Warcraft blog. Most of these hotfixes address issues with the Firelands raid; however, there is one notable change that ought to have hunters breathing a sign of relief.
  • Combat pets should no longer aggro creatures while the player is mounted. Hunters, it's safe to ride alongside your pet again. Fluffy will stop finding angry new friends to play with.
  • During the Rhyolith encounter, multiple volcanoes casting Eruption will now create separate stacks. Crushing a volcano will cause its stacks of Eruption to fade shortly after it's crushed.
  • Riplimb's Lost Collar was apparently really, really lost. The item should now properly drop from select creatures.

Follow after the break for the full list of hotfixes.
