At least Glyph of Shadowfiend has a benefit in a raid. Glyph of Levitate does not, at all.In fact, when was the last time you casted Power Word: Fortitude in a boss fight? I think that glyph is useless as well. The only time it becomes worthwhile is if a tank dies and someone resurrects them, and you would have a LOT more things to worry about besides that buff if a tank just died.Glyph of Shadowfiend is better than nothing, and that's why I would expect anyone serious about maximizing their efficiency would take it, even though the effect is meaningless 99% of the time.

ragnaros wants to have a word regarding levitate. And i have never had my shadowfiend die ever. Ever.

Any raid with an elevator boss makes Glyph of Levitate worth the investment. Plus, as a conduit of pure holy energy, you should be floating above the rabble as a matter of course.Funny that you mention "maximizing efficiency" after saying its not worthwhile to cast Power Word Fortitude in combat. If you're not putting Fortitude on a DPS or Healer that was just Brezzed then you're gimping your raid, period.

actually the whole reasons battle rez's exist is because people sometimes rez in combat. In my raid only one priest hits the rebuff buttons and on mumble you can commonly hear "I've got priest buffs" so it's not essential for -every- priest to have power word fortitude ... but it does happen, and it's not just the tank that could use/might want rebuffs.

I have to rebuff PW:F anytime someone dies. Every little bit helps when you're raiding progression. Is the mana cost a huge deal? Maybe not, but it IS something people do.

Did you even read the article? And do you even raid? Because your points really lead me to believe neither is true.
