Patch 4.1 Imminent

if all goes well, we can expect to see patch 4.1 go live next tuesday (april 26)! blizzard has released an official recap of 4.1 notes and features. there are many notable new additions as well as fixes and changes, however, much of the vanity pet-related news seems to be undocumented. thankfully, for my sake and sanity, i've kept track of what's likely in store for pet collectors in 4.1 here. (oh, compulsion to keep track of things, you haven't failed me yet!)

one thing that the official post on 4.1 does hint at relates to the companions that might be found in the new call to arms goodie bag reward:
"'ll receive a goodie bag that will contain some gold, a chance at a rare gem, a chance at a flask/potion, a good chance of receiving a non-combat pet (including cross faction pets), and a very rare chance at receiving a mount."
this caught my attention because now i'm curious as to what blizzard's definition of "good chance" is. not to mention which cross faction pets will be included on this loot list (argent tournament companions? or mainly the horde/alliance favored vendor pets?) we'll have to wait and see what the droprates are like and which pets will actually be available through the new system.

overall, i'm pretty anxious to see the patch go live. new pets being released simultaneously with new features/new-ish content. not to mention the in-game holidays (nobelgarden and then children's week)! there's a lot of potential for bugs and problems, but there's also a lot of potential for much WINNING! (hint: pets are "WIN!" in my book :P)
