@Cthulu, if you're looking at just a single spellcast, then yes, Glyph of Renew does seem to reduce the amount healed (and the HPM). But in terms of HPS it's still an increase, because the unglyphed Renew has to be divided by 15 seconds and the glyphed Renew is divided by 12 seconds.I certainly wouldn't recast a non-glyphed Renew at second 12; what I meant was that glyphed Renew only lasts 12 seconds, so you'd have to recast then to get it to stay up for 15 seconds.I can see why it wouldn't be a pure 25% increase because buffs like that are usually multiplicative, not additive - [base healing] * 1.05 (Twin Disciplines) * 1.15 (Improved Renew) * (1.15 * Spellpower) (Empowered Renew) * 1.25 (Glyph of Renew) - but that should make it heal for MORE, not less. I'll be interested to see the links you have - something here just doesn't smell right to me. (I don't think you're wrong - I DO think there might be a bug somewhere, because glyphs shouldn't make a spell worse!)(Oh, but I bet I know why - the spell power coefficient isn't going up to compensate for the number of ticks going down. I'll have to do some thinking about that.)
