4.1 game fixes-
Some interrupts were still incorrectly missing targets. Wind Shear, Spell Lock, Counterspell, Mind Freeze, and hunter pet abilities Nether Shock and Serenity Dust should no longer miss.
Characters who mount up with a pet bar active should no longer lose control of the pet if they dismount while under the effects of any crowd control.
Guilds close to level 25 should correctly receive the realm-first achievement (when applicable), regardless of whether or not contributing members recently transferred to the realm.
Players are no longer able to purchase any of the city reputation satchels without having the required reputation.
Nitro Boosts now do 80% of the engineer's health in damage over 8 seconds when they fail due to a Rocket Fuel Leak, down from 120%.
Quests & Creatures
NPCs should be a little less talkative when interacted with.
Arch Druid Hamuul Runetotem is no longer incorrectly visible at the Shrine of Malorne after players complete the quest Firefight while on the quest Aessina's Miracle.
Players should again be able to successfully complete the quest The Firelord.
Rise of the Zandalari
The quest Bwemba's Spirit should no longer complete prematurely for select players when others nearby start the quest event with their spirit version of Bwemba.

Dungeons & Raids
Dungeon Journal is in the process of being implemented.
The Reins of the Dark Phoenix, has had its art improved. It's now less transparent and indisputably more awesome.
Eye of the Storm has been added into the rotation as a 10-man Rated Battleground. This change applies only to Rated Battlegrounds.
Many improvements are being made to the War Games interface, though the changes are not yet fully functional.
Characters can now be reorganized at the Character Selection screen. This feature not yet fully functional and the reorganization of characters doesn't save at this time.
The cast bar can now be moved to display below the Character frame.
Move Pad is a mouse-click interface for movement which is now built into the base interface.
Patch 4.2 Models - Bosses and Mounts!
Patch 4.2 added a fair amount of models to the game files, see the newest ones below!
Both Horde and Alliance got brand new PvP mounts, they seem to be a reward from the existing rated battlegrounds achievements. It's not very clear which achievement is required, Blizzard is probably still playing around with those:
Tarecgosa and Tarecgosa Whelp
Tarecgosa, the blue drake from the legendary staff questline got her own model. There's also a model named "TarecgosaWhelp" and I really want to believe that it is the Dragonwrath Whelpling rewarded by Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest - Guild Edition. There is no indication in the game files yet that it is indeed the reward, I will try to confirm that as soon as possible.
Malorne is also in the game files and got a pretty nice model. For more information check Malorne on Wowpedia
Fandral Staghelm + Fire Scorpion
Fandral's model and his Fire Scorpion Mount have been added.
Lord Anthrycist - Lava Form
It looks like Lord Anthrycist's fight will have two phases, he's much more fiery in one of those.
Two sets of Lava Spiders models have been added in this patch and they look awesome.
Fire Elemental - Kar
A new Fire Elemental "Kar" model appeared in this patch, not sure if it's just an updated trash mob model or a boss.
Ragnaros has been slightly revamped and looks a lot less stupid than in the Patch 4.1 game files.
Winged Lion Pet
Yes. Seriously. So much cuteness.
WoW Lost 600k Subscribers, down to 11.4M
Activision Blizzard's earning call was today and we learned, among other things, that the WoW playerbase is down to 11.4M players. That's 5% less than before the expansion and it seems that players went through the Cataclysm content faster than expected.
The Dungeon/Raid Journal is now online on mmo-champion.com be sure to check it out with great pictures showing it's functions clearly.
Also we have many class changes that occurred in 4.1, with the many updates so be sure to also check those out if not aware.
I am still waiting to purchase the winged guardian (lion) mount on blizzard store so hopefully it is soon. Thank you for watching if any questions please comment below, hit me up ingame, etc. I am Zangetsu and please subscribe/comment see you next week.
