Well, I'm not in the beta so I can't show actual numbers, but if the reporting is correct, then chain heal would do x healing to the first target, .7x healing to the second, .49x healing to the third and .34 healing to the fourth for a total of 2.53x.The new glyph makes it sound as if the first target is going to get .9x healing (10% less). The second target will get 15% more than it would have, so I would assume .7 (the normal jump coefficient) * 1.15 (the glyph bonus) * .9 (the first heal). That would be .72x for the second heal, .58x for the third and .47x for the fourth for a total of 2.67x (about a 5% increase). However, it's only an increase if you get all the allowed jumps. With 0 jumps it's -0.1x, with 2 it's -0.08x, with 3 it's -0.01x. However, you also smooth out the healing (everyone gets .47-.9, a two-fold difference, rather than .34-1, a three fold difference) and you get a big heal on the fourth jump (half a normal CH rather than only a third).For comparison, on live the jump penalty is 40%, so a 2 jump CH healing 3 people would have heals of 1, .60, .36 (1.96 total) while a glyphed 3 jump would have 1, .6, .36 and .21 (2.17, an 11% increase). The CH glyph obviously wouldn't penalize you if you don't get the third jump.So, it strikes me as a 25-man glyph, where you'll always get that third jump. Without the full number of jumps, the heal gets weaker with the glyph and, in a heal-per-mana concerned world, I don't think that's what you want to see.
