Considering the likely elemental/dragonkin emphasis in the expansion...wouldn't Holy Wrath be a good idea as a major glyph?

Not as much 80. Well, I suppose it would be decent for Halion.

At 85? Absolutely - I'm expecting it to be a "Nigh Mandatory" once we get a look at more 85 content / raids.

Anyway, updated.

:lol: Gottunddamerung? Never heard that before :P

Götterdämmerung! = twilight of the gods (seems out of place to me at least)
Verflixt und zugenäht! = Botheration! (seems more appropriate according to dict.leo.org)

I'm using "BLINKENLIGHTS" German. It's a special dialect.

I have a question for you Knaughty.

Is Word of Glory worth enough if you aren't running H:LK level content to worry about? I understand that Hallowed Ground and Grand Crusader are 'mediocre to brokenly bad' right now, but am I going to be staring at Word of Glory and cursing myself for taking the talents otherwise?

I will admit that I missed the last ~7 days of PTR and Beta so I could be off, but I never found WoG to be "useful" at 80 in the content that I run.

Have you considered taking that one point you have in Eternal Glory and moving it to Hallowed Ground (which i know sucks from a single target tps perspective) to help on AOE pulls in lvl 80 content for next 2 months? We are pulling it out of a zero tps talent to a small tps talent that we will only use on AOE situations anyway.

Basically everything I am reading is that we will never use WoG except in an absolute emergency (IE - Healers dead or Dc'd) and in that case who cares if casting WoG has a 15% chance to not cost HoPo?

Thoughts?

Thanks for the FAQ, boss. Just wanted to say that I get a kick out of your opening, no matter how many times I read it.

Just wanted to add my thanks knaughty, I've not kept up with the changes in recent months so this is exactly what I need to get back into business tomorrow.

The change to Librams/Relics might be worth noting as well, while it should be pretty obvious to anyone who takes a look at their gear it's something that could probably do with a similar explanation as you gave for the defense removal and such.
