News article is somewhat wrong. 5.4 patch isn't "available" yet, it's just being tested. It's been available for testing for well over a month, so this is nothing new.
Also, WoW has had pets/mounts you can buy with RL money for years now, it's just that the purchase was done on the website, instead of in the game. The fact that's moving to some kind of in-game vendor is hardly news. Also, if you consider these microtransactions (which you probably should), then WoW has already had microtransactions for 3-4 years now.
The only thing actually new here is that they're "looking into" selling Lesser Charms (which are currently obtained via various activities in game, essentially a timesink), and also an experience buff in Asia.
