"I like the idea of making my cooldowns more usable, but one of my biggest weaknesses is forgetting to use them." Oh God, me too. I'll completely stress myself out on an encounter, wondering why things have to be so hard for poor, lil' me, and then when the fight is over I'll realize that I neglected to use any of my cooldowns while playing whack-a-player.As for Glyph of Beacon of Light... I'm still pretty set on playing 'Beacon Before You Heal' when I'm healing. Basically, if someone's dipping low enough where I'll want to use Divine Light on them, I'll generally use Beacon of Light on them so I'll generate extra Holy Power. Am I being dumb? Am I still stuck a week after Cataclysm where I desperately tried to keep people up in heroics, something that was made harder because I couldn't see properly through the tears in my eyes? The above tactic was more effective when Holy Light still generated Holy Power (R.I.P. oh ye overpowered mechanic), maybe it's time I stop doing that and find a new friend for Glyph of Divine Plea and Glyph of Light of Dawn to play with?

With rare exceptions tho I find my Beaconed tank is generally taking pretty steady damage.I'm a 10m healer so the typical breakdown is our disc priest focus healing the tanks, our resto druid focusing on raid and me bouncing in to spot heal random people who need it.In that situation I just use my Beacon to ease up on the burden on one of the tanks. Swapping Beacon would be a serious risk to the tank suddenly getting gibbed.Maybe your experience is different. ^_^
