Glyph of Exorcism links to the wrong item, by the way.

Art of War procs are the only thing that make that glyph possibly a good thing. I don't play PvP (much), so I'm not real sure if people will bother with it or not. In PvE it's a huge letdown. I already spend too much time waiting for cooldowns. Now I have to wait for Art of War to proc or stand still and cast Exorcism... blah.Off topic I know... I agree that giving these "tips" just floods the market, though. It seems almost counter-productive IMHO.

You mentioned new epic blacksmithing gear being released with the next patch, but nowhere on the PTR notes does it address anything to do with blacksmithing?

@T0xic Maybe it would add a bit of skill to the ret pally rotation. As it stands now you can facemash your keyboard and do top dps. Enhancement shamans don't complain about Maelstrom weapon stacking up before they can use lightning bolt

Also, what's up with the non-popuppy mmo-champion links? Either use wowhead, or use mmo-champion, but stop mixing them!

If you think art of war procs will somehow create a harder rotation in Ret PVE, you don't know Ret. I can count on an AoW proc by the time exorcism would be worked into my rotation. In fact someone looked at the numbers and now Ret will have an actual rotation. It's a hell of a lot simpler than Enhance and will have no priority list once eastablished, just hit what come off Cd next. AoW is so likely to have procced fro exorcism that it is essentially a non-issue.Net result: Ret does more PVE DPS, less burst in PVP (with no healing debuff or other tricks so it is the weakest of the healers) and protection loses a mobility threat and pick up tool.I had to use exorcism a good 15 times on Ignis last night. He kept running away and so I'd hit him with it or AS before hitting the next thing in rotation. That or while running out of scorch I'd hit it, since he was out of melee then too. I am going to miss it. Especially since I could care less about it as Ret. It uses spell hit and so I either get more hit than needed for melee or deal with it missing a lot.
