@Cthulu, keep in mind that I come at this out of ignorance - I haven't been a Holy priest since BC. That said, I'm looking at your math and I'm not sure it's quite right.Your numbers certainly look right (and you're drawing from your own healing, so I won't dispute that, but consider:Without the glyph, you get 14490 over 15 seconds. With the glyph, you get 13910 over 12 seconds. (It looks like the glyph is actually only providing 20% more healing per tick (~2500 vs ~3000); I wonder why that's so.) That's certainly less HPM (untalented, Renew costs 657 mana, so you get 22 healing per mana unglyphed, and 21 HPM glyphed), and makes the spell less efficient. But you get 966 healing per second from unglyphed Renew (14490 healing/15 seconds), and ~1159 healing per second from glyphed Renew (13910/12 seconds).To come at it from a different direction, assume that you have Renew ticking for 15 seconds, regardless of whether or not it's glyphed. (If it is, you have to recast it at second 12.) Unglyphed, you get 14490 healed over those 15 seconds; but glyphed, you get 16915 healed over the same 15 seconds (13910 over the first 12, plus another 3005 from the first tick of the recast Renew).Am I doing something wrong? Like I said, I'm not a Holy priest and haven't been one for a year and a half, so if there's something I'm overlooking, please tell me.
