The first set of hotfixes for patch 5.4.2 have been released and posted to the official blog. For a small patch, the list of hotfixes is fairly lengthy, although there's nothing too major to be found. However, there have been several adjustments made to Arenas -- players who frequently PvP may want to take a look at the adjustments that have been made. In addition, hunters may want to take a look at changes that have been put in place as well.
- Hunters -- Revive Pet now has a cast time of 2 seconds, down from 4.
- Arena matches should now have a correct maximum duration of 20 minutes again.
- Paladins, your seals should no longer be removed at the start of an arena match.
