How does the glyph of holy light, work with beacon? So you beacon the tank, you holy light a rogue, the holy light affects the tank aswell, and so then does the 5 x 10% additional heals also go to the tank? (3x 10% minus the tank and the rogue i suppose). Also is beacon working off overheal, or is it only effective healing?

It's only effective healing on beacon. As far as the glyph, I think the combat log shows the heal on the tank as a beacon heal rather than a HL heal (I can't be sure though, I didn't keep the beacon spec all that long in beta) so that only the rogue, in this case, would have gotten the glyph effect.

If you beacon the tank and then Holy Light a rogue within 40 yds of the tank while you have the glyph, this is what seems to happen from some testing:- The normal Holy Light heal lands on the rogue.- The effective healing part of that heal lands on the tank because of the beacon. Overhealing is indeed ignored.- 10% of the Holy Light heal lands on 5 surrounding party/raid members because of the glyph, which may or may not include the tank.- That bonus 10% heal does not trigger more of the beacon effect if it lands on someone other than the tank.Not easy to test, but that's what it looks like.
