Patch 5.1 hotfixes for Dec. 5

Patch 51 hotfixes for Dec 5
More hotfixes are in store for patch 5.1, it seems -- and a fresh list was just posted to the official blog. Please note that some hotfixes may require a realm restart before going into effect -- and that we have rolling restarts scheduled for tomorrow morning. Included with today's rounds are the usual handful of bug fixes, but we've also got some adjustments for Pet Battles and Brawler's Guild tweaks as well.
  • All eligible players can now complete the quest It Is A Mystery, which makes things far less mysterious, but far less frustrating as well.
  • The Crow on Darkmoon Island can now be caputured, and cannot be caged for sale.
  • Picking up Meatball's Strange Energy in the Brawler's arena will now benefit the Brawler's nearby pet as well.
  • It turns out framerates were merely a setback, and the issue affecting system performance in Silvermoon City has been resolved.
Read on for the full list of hotfixes.
