Patch 5.2 Hotfixes for March 5

Patch 52 Hotfixes for March 5
Hotfixes! Hotfixes! Get them while they're hot... fixes! Well, actually, given that these were implemented on March 5, but posted late last night, they're probably lukewarm fixes by now. None of these are game-changers, more technical bug-fixes as you'd expect from the first round of fixes after a bug, but there are still some interesting changes.
  • Sunreaver Beacon and Kirin Tor Beacon no longer share the same cooldown.
  • Shadowy Apparitions will no longer pursue targets that are actively stealthed
  • Sleep effects should now break properly when a pet is attacked. (Pet Battles)
  • Sunsong Ranch Work orders to plant a crop no longer award gold.
  • Players should no longersee or hear chat from other player's NPCs during the introduction to the Isle of Thunder.
This last one is particularly interesting given that these hotfixes were already applied in the EU, as Draztal confirms, my Alliance shaman was privy to what seemed like a private chat between the Horde Scout Captain and whoever she was flying over to the Sunreaver ships. Something about Lor'themar. And the one about shadowy apparitions chasing stealthed targets made us chuckle.

There are also some further class changes, and a couple of other bits and bobs, so do hit the break for the full list.
