Patch 5.4.7

Patch 5.4.7 is the name for patch build 17898 that went live on February 18, 2014, but also the hotfix build 17930 that was released on February 20, 2014. The initial Patch 5.4.7 release had many problems (missing mounts and pets; armory data problems; although parts of the problems could have been on the server side) that were resolved, in theory, by the hotfix build.

The first patch build 17807 appeared on the PTR around January 25, 2014. Build 17841 appeared around January 31, 2014. Build 17859 appeared on February 6, 2014. Build 17889[1][2] appeared on February 11, 2014. Build 17898 appeared on February 13, 2014, but had a different date (Feb 11 vs. Feb 12 for Live build), so may have been slightly different from what went live.
