It would be nice if they spent some time on the hunter/warlock/mage pet bugs, like the one where they still run behind you while on a riding mount, and take aggro then get lost, and despawn when you go onto a bliz mount for a quest and fail to come back out when you get off (like in the punting the turtle quest)....
Thank you...

On behalf of tanks everywhere, I thank Blizzard for fixing the targeting woes. Ran an instance last night and things were much better.
