I don't understand what's wrong with the "Glyph of Shadow Word: Death"? How does an extra +5% damage to wounded targets interfere with "Pain and Suffering"?

Fairly sure he was mixing up SW:P & SW:D there. The SW:D glyph is fine, it's only 5% but damage to targets under 35% health but extra damage is extra damage. The applicable part of the Pain and Suffering talent operating on SW:D simply reduces the backlash damage you take by 60% which is pretty clearly a good thing(tm). The other part of the Pain and Suffering talent refreshes the duration of your SW:P which does at first glance make the SW:P glyph seem pretty pointless. That said though the glyph isn't totally useless, it will find use in multi-target situations where you're keeping SW:P on multiple mobs while focusing on another target; and possibly in PvP (escaping targets, mages with their dot duration reduction shield, etc). I have to agree though with the original poster; the shadow priest glyphs seem fairly lackluster when compared to their disc/holy counterparts or to the glyphs granted to the other classes. It's beta though so here's hoping :)
