Anyone have any idea what will happen to our existing glyphs? Will I just log in one day and they'll be gone?

The way I remember it working from wrath to cataclysm, for scribes anyway, was that the spell IDs were the same for some glyphs that changed. If it woks like that for the glyphs you've already learned, then what will happen is the Prime Glyph spell_ID that they use to change into a minor glyph, you'll already know.So for example, the current spell ID for the Glyph of Molten armor is 56382. In Mists of Pandaria, that spell ID will point to the Glyph of Crittermorph. So if you currently have learned the Glyph of Molten Armor, you will already "know" the Glyph of Crittermorph when 5.01 drops. Check out the number on the spell_IDs:http://www.wowhead.com/spell=56382http://mop.wowhead.com/spell=56382Same spell number, different glyph in cata v. mop.Again this assumes that the glyph transition works the same way for individual classes as it did for inscription. When 4.01 dropped, spell ID's for creating glyphs similarly changed, so that if you knew how to make a certain glyph, and the spell_ID changed to a different glyph, you automatically knew how to make the same glyph on your scribe.

Oh as for your actual glyph slots, my guess is that they will be reset, but you'll still "know" all the glyphs you previously learned, so you'll be able to re-assign your glyphs with a fresh slate.With the huge glyph revamp, I don't think there is any other way they can do it other than to erase everyone's glyph slots and give everyone a fresh start.

If it goes as it is on the Beta - all your glyph slots will be wiped clean. As for the glyphs themselves, if the spell ID stays the same, then you'll have the new glyph in your book. My Paladin has MANY of the new glyphs right now, from the cross over.
