Patch 4.3 - World Event Pets No Longer Bound on Pick Up
An interesting change is made to pets in Patch 4.3, all world event pets are no longer bound on pick up. Feel free to yell at me for not spotting that a week before when you could still buy the Feline Familiar to keep it and sell it after the patch. Thanks to darkquantum for the news tip!

In Patch 4.3, Guilds with inactive guild leaders can now impeach their GL and replace him with another active user.

For more information, check out the announcemend posted a month ago.

In the event that a guild leader takes a leave of absence and remains inactive for an extended period of time, it can be difficult for some guilds to carry on as normal. To help assist with these situations, we're introducing a new system in patch 4.3 known as "inactive guild leader replacement" that will allow players of the appropriate rank to take over leadership of a guild from an inactive guild leader via the Guild tab.

The way inactive guild leader replacement works is pretty straightforward. If a guild leader’s character is inactive for 30 days, a notification will appear in the Guild News & Events feed which can only be seen by guild members who are eligible to become the new guild leader. To determine eligibility, the game will look for the highest ranked character in the guild that's logged on in the past week, and any guild member from that rank will be able to request guild leadership simply by clicking on the notification.

As with many actions in World of Warcraft, clicking on the notification will open up a confirmation window which, once accepted, will transition leadership from the inactive guild leader to the first player to request leadership. If guild leadership is changed, the old guild leader will be notified via email to his or her registered Battle.net address. While some players may need to log out and back in before their Guild tab will visually update, the change in leadership will be immediate, with all ranks and permissions remaining in-tact.

Please note that if you're an active leader of a guild, this system should not affect you or your guild. The goal of inactive guild leader replacement is simply to allow guilds which have found themselves without leadership for a long period of time to resolve the situation on their own without the need to contact our In-Game Support department.

Inactive guild leader replacement is currently live on the PTR, but keep in mind that it may be difficult to test, as a guild leader will need to be inactive for a full 30 days before the option to transition leadership will become available.

    Why would they remove the BoP from the pets?

    I had the Sinister Squashling already on my DK, but it dropped about 3 times in hallow's end and I deleted it always...

    I guess it makes sense if you want to give an incentive to run the old holidays again, I mean, most people just run that stuff once and stop until they catch all the rewards.

    Hahaha. Awesome! I was just about to delete all those annoying Sinister Squashlings as well.

    I deleted about 8 Squashlings >.< Aw well, guess I'll have to do it again next year for my other toons. Glad I still have some of the Christmas pets though in my alt guild bank ^.^

    Hmmm... I guess..

    People who managed to keep their extra squashlings and felines are going to make a KILLING. Ill be sure to pick those up on the auction house ASAP to flip them.

    And guess who deleted all the excess Sinister Squashlings! "I already have that. DELETE!"

    Luckily I read this two weeks ago (can't remember where though) and saved all Squashlings on all my alts

    30 days only for removal of GM status? Kinda... Not too nice.

    For the already BoE Winter Veil pets, this should be just a tooltip fix anyway. And the BoP pets are farmable anyway, it just lets you do it on any character (because they have a higher level, or could use the guild rep from the associated quests, or simply haven't done the achievements for the event yet)

    Stop crying about your Sinister Hatchlings. Everyone got like 10 of them, they would be worth nothing and you'd end up deleting them instead of bothering reposting them on the AH forever.

    Ok so how about they make the event mounts not BOP too? I mean there is nothing more annoying than winning the headless horseman on a character who ALREADY has the headless horseman, but never seeing it on any of your alts. They really should do something with that too.

    People who deleted the pets and want them back should open up a GM ticket and ask for a restoration. You don't even have to give a reason why you want them back

    It's 30 days of not logging into a character that is in almost all cases your main character. If you are still playing the game, this should never happen anyway.
