Agree or disagree? It seems to me that blizzard is purposedly trying to kill every skill element in the game. That aside I do like some of the changes they have done.

First they made it easier for casuals to PvE, now they're trying to make it easier for casuals to get rating, going into the right direction.

The fact that it is a hard choice for you is a good thing. It promotes diversity - and it is not only priests who have it like this, other classes/specs have some really hard choices too. It's a good thing, not a bad thing.

I don't see how it takes away from skill, given that it is still there should you want it.

The problem with the glyph is that the damage is always reduced, even below the threshold. So it would need to be changed completely and a new minor glyph should be added to reduces damage taken by SW:D to zero if the target is not killed.

The thing is, that with the game in its current state (of course it shouldn't be judged by it current state though, as pre expansion patches are never balanced) is that we really can't take away glyph of desperation nor glyph of inner focus, as pretty much anything can you take you from 100 to 0 in a stun or a silence at the moment, that leaves one open slot to choose between all these new and exciting glyphs. Personally I find instant holy fire to be a favourite, but I'd definetly take that away for the shadow word death glyph.

What I DO hate immensely though, is that the glyph doesn't ship with the patch, we have to get sheeped to eternity by awfully shit mages for 25 days.
