Custom pet names have returned with latest WoW hotfixes

The latest batch of WoW hotfixes cover a little bit of everything this time around. Of particular note for pet collectors is an issue regarding custom pet names. Players noticed that custom names were partially disappearing — that issue has now been resolved. Speaking of pets, players that have embarked on Uuna’s adventure should note that she’s now correctly noticing her surroundings in Suramar.

In addition, a host of class fixes have made the list. For Demon Hunters, Fel Eruption should now be properly dealing damage to stun-immune targets. In addition, Rage of the Illidari should also be correctly dealing damage. Warriors should now be able to start the quest One More Legend after completing two Artifact acquisition chains. And Mages should be able to once again pick up their Frostfire Remembrance artifact appearance.

A couple dungeons, one raid, and a world rare spawn have also had some fixes. Aeonaxx in Deepholm should no longer fail to drop loot. Fel Furies spawning during the Mythic Tirathon Saltheril encounter in Vault of the Wardens will no longer evade. And as for professions, Skinners can rejoice: Noxious Whelps should now be providing Green Whelp Scales when skinned.

There are a bunch of other minor fixes included as well — read on for the full list of hotfixes below.
