Two things:First, is there -any- amount of qualifying text that will actually have the desired effect? Why is it that when people read "this is a nifty idea that we'd maybe like to do some day, perhaps, if there's time, and if we did here are a few ideas about how we might, theoretically, accomplish this hypothetical change, but don't get your hopes up" but they hear, "CHRISTMAS IS COMING, BITCHES! The instant Mists launches, you're getting everything you ever dreamed of, plus a few things we haven't even mentioned yet! As an apology for all those times we had to nerf your class! And also we find you, specifically, quite sexually desirable!". I'll say it again: manage your expectations, or this beta process is going to be torture.Second, I -do- find Blizzard's excuses on the matter kind of silly. How many awesome cosmetic glyphs have been announced/datamined for other classes? And now, after they stripped all of the class-specific quests out of the game an claimed that they'd never make one again, they suddenly want this one cosmetic change to involve one? Frankly, if the CM's don't know something they should keep quite instead of layering conjecture on top of conjecture. A simple "don't expect this any time soon" might have sufficed.

All the current cosmetic glyphs affect shapeshifting mechanics, the visual effects of buffs or change the mechanics of spells.There ARE no glyphs that change a projectile spell's model without making any other changes, and developing the system that would allow that to happen is why adding green fire is going to take a while. It'd be more work than it sounds and it is not high priority.
