Honestly, I really want pure cosmetic glyphs. It stemmed from the fact I play a warlock and green fire would be awesome, but then I got to thinking of other classes.I really wouldn't mind if they created glyphs that really changed the look of spells. I know it would take a massive amount of development, but just seeing small things (like green fire) would make it a lot more fun.

There's already Glyph of the Treant.

Al means _permanent_ Tree Form.

What they should have done was make the form temporary if you wanted it more powerful via the glyph. Kind of the direct opposite of how it is now.

Glyph of Everlasting Tree Form for President.Now that would be change I can believe in.

would like to buy the opposite of the tree of life glyph - a glyph that allows moonkin form and aura buffs without looking like a moonkin.best of both worlds for all druid casters :-)

It could be a glyph that makes a resto druid a tree model like before, and the ToL cooldown could stay the same model as it does currently while unglyphed.

Why do people refuse to understand that the removal of perma-tree was a BUFF? Druids were balanced around always being in tree, because it would be OP to give us a permanent form that made us better than any other healer. So basically, we were forced to be in a limiting form (no offensive or defensive spells, only heals) to be "just as good" as everyone else. It wasn't fun or engaging gameplay.So now that tree form is a tempoary spell, it actually can be a buff. Whereas before, we were basically stuck with a talent/spell that did nothing but give us a costume (not very fun) or a talent/spell that did things but forced us to limit ourselves in a way another healer didn't have to.If they can somehow tie it into a purely cosmetic glyph fine. But with the new talent system, who really knows what they can and can't do.

Mmm... glyph of raven swarm for shadow priests? Those guys on the Scarlet side of Dragonblight were freaking cool.

But the argument made that healers in tree form could only heal can be flipped to say that boomkins in moonkin form can only dps. If they heal themselves, they drop form. Their moonkin suit provides a buff the way the tree suit provided a buff. I've just recently picked up my resto druid to finish leveling her, its a little weird to think of tree form as a cooldown. I'm glad its there for emergencies, or situations where I know mid-boss fight I can use it because it'll last long enough to get through and just about be ready for the next boss (or I can hope anyway). I think the big argument was that it was stated that perma-tree was removed so that one form of druid can see their gear all the time. Which, I think is a buncha hooey. But, thats ok. Moonkin form could have been 'sacrificed' to being a cooldown as well, if it had been chosen instead, then Boomkin community would be the ones complaining. Cats and Bears need their forms. Shapeshifting is what makes druids different from the other classes.
