As a holy priest, I've actually considered dropping the Circle of Healing glyph altogether. Mana isn't abundant as it is (much less so than on my far less geared resto shaman), and how bad can the reduction from 6 to 5 targets be? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, Dawn.

I think that would be perfectly fine. Especially if you're doing 10-mans and the role you take on is more amorphous. Holy priests in 25-mans are probably raid healing, so they'll want the glyph, but for everyone else I'd say just assess the glyph on a fight by fight basis. If the fight has a ton of raid damage and you find yourself healing the group more than anything, might as well use the glyph. If you're switching between focusing on the tank and the group, you can probably go without. Nothing wrong with switching glyphs every fight, honestly =)

Thanks for that, Dawn. The problem is that I *am* in a 25man raid. The thing is, especially in healing-intense phases (think last phase on Beth 25 heroic), my mana often runs dangerously low, and that's after using all the tricks I have for regaining it. I'm just wondering how big the difference would be between healing 5 instead of 6 per CoH, in exchange for more manageable mana. Instead of, you know, healing 6 with CoH and then at some point sitting there completely OOM and not being able to do *anything* :-/
