I gotta say, I'm not impressed with the new glyphs. All I see with the new glyph tier is more complication and not more return. GC originally said that they wanted the minor glyphs to be something fun. I see that with the ghost wolf change, but then what? It's like they got bored and reverted to what they already had. Anytime a "blue glowey hands" thread is made on the forums it explodes with people supporting the idea of a change from the druid-borrowed healing animations right now and moving toward a water-based healing, which is what all the ability names and descriptions seem to promote anyway. GC has even said that a minor glyph to change those colors, as well as one for warlocks, was being seriously looked at. Well... where are they? I really have enjoyed Blizzard as a company and I've trusted them to do what's best, but it seems like the more I see outside of world design for Cataclysm the more I lose faith in the WoW team. So they wanted to add more glyphs? Okay, cool. They promoted it as something new and exciting though. This doesn't feel new or exciting, it sounds like an excuse to add complexity. They want to get rid of aoe tanking? Awesome, I can get behind that.... but wait, what's this? You're giving druids a new aoe bleed tanking ability? What's the thought behind that? You want to make paladins a little less faceroll? Sounds great.... what do you mean holy power? You added an entire new resource mechanic that was unnecessary and so far bulky and awkward for what reason? Unnecessary complexity? Anyway /rant off.Blizzard, you can do better.

I totally agree.Why would I give up water walking, reagent-less resurrection, water breathing or a seven minute hearth to ever so slightly modify my ghost wolf form's color.I can't see a difference between arctic and regular ghost wolf.If I were Blizzard, I would have just made a strictly appearance oriented glyph circle that is a notch below minor. Perhaps a lesser glyph circle?!

"All I see with the new glyph tier is more complication and not more return." Err no....WE now have the ability to pretty much choose all of the useful glyphs we want and have room for some preference ones, before we only got what what was 100% essential or we were sub optimal. So far they are good changes appart from the grounding totem one, 45 sec cd is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to long.Glyphs are such a small part of the game they arent worrying too much about them yet because they have bigger fishes to fry eg, balancing the classes around the total stat rehaul, once they have that done and the talents fixed, then they might have the time to address the minor problems with glyphs if there are any but its not really a big deal if they do or not, just stop bitching everytime they say they might or will try to do something and its not mentioned every time they post things related to cata these "OMG WUR R MAH GLYPHS U SAIDZ U WUD MAKE DEM" posts are seriously annoying now.
