Undocumented Changes In 4.2

July 05, 2011
Here are some of the undocumented changes that have been identified within Patch 4.2.

Cat Idle Animations
If you've played with any of the cat companions post-patch, you may have noticed that they have learned some new tricks. Blizzard has updated the older models to include the idle animations, sit and lie down, that were once thought to be only for the newer cub pets. Now all our friendly felines can show us just how laid back and lazy they are!

Avian Idle Animations
Along with the updated cats, Blizzard has slowed down the constant flapping animation for many of our avian companions, specifically those found in the parrot sub-category. Rather than a frantic flapping when idle, these winged beauties have a more graceful and slow-paced flutter in this latest patch update.

Official Armory Collection Tracking

July 11, 2011
Blizzard recently added a new section to the official WoW armory, a "Companions & Mounts" area. You can access it through your character's armory page. It's located on the left navigation bar, just below your character's "Achievements" link.

What's Inside
In the new "Companions & Mounts" section, you can view all the vanity pets that particular character owns and the pets that have yet to collect. Unfortunately, you cannot view companions that are no longer available or regional pets that may be unobtainable.

There's an advanced filter option that has the standard selection of choices to help you sort through your collection. It may not be as detailed as the filters available on WarcraftPets or include an option to sort by pet type, but it beats browsing and searching through all the companions one by one and page by page!

While this new collecting section of the official armory may not be as detailed or in depth as WarcraftPets, it will still come in handy for double checking collections and if our favorite fansite ever goes down for maintenance the armory will be there as back up.

Interfacing with WarcraftPets
Additionally, we're currently working on changes to WarcraftPets so that user accounts will interface with the pet data found in a character's official armory profile. When these changes roll out in the months ahead, collections will be validated against the armory and updating your collection will be a breeze.

Nightsaber Cub Loot Code Bug

July 28, 2011
UPDATE: Blizzard and Cryptozoic have fixed the bug affecting the Nightsaber Cub loot codes. We and the folks at WoWTCGLoot would like to thank you everyone who pre-ordered for your patience. Now... go redeem that Nightsaber!

Nightsaber Cub Loot Code Bug
Our friends at WoWTCGLoot.com have uncovered a serious bug concerning the new Nightsaber Cub loot codes:

"A very high percentage of their codes are returning back as 'Redemption key does not exist' in the Blizzard Promotion webpage. Due to this serious issue, our merchants will closely monitor the situation and delay sending out further codes until this problem is solved. It appears it could be related to regular Tuesday maintenance. Thank you for your patience as we wait for Blizzard and Cryptozoic to solve the problem." [source]

We understand many of you have pre-ordered your Nightsaber Cub and were hoping to receive your code today. Unfortunately the issue is outside of our control. We do have full faith in Blizzard and Cryptozoic to resolve the issue in a timely fashion. We will keep you posted with any updates to the situation.
