Patch 4.2.0a patch notes

Patch 4.2.0a has hit the live servers today, and we’ve got all the (short) notes for you below. This wasn’t entirely unexpected, as Blizzard has hinted over the past week that there’d be a small patch to fix some issues.

And before people ask, there’s no new information on patch 4.3 or any other content patches. These are mainly bug fixes that needed a client update.
