What Glyphs is everyone using?

Currently I have Imp Judgements, Rightous Defense and the Vengence Glyph. I'd like to replace one with Divine Plea, but I'm having a hard time choosing...

SoV/Corr, Divine Plea + Judgement.

Probably swapping out Judgement when I find a Glyph of Salvation. Need to test Salvation a bit, see if I´m comfortable with it.
I used to play a paladin.

I'm going with DP, SoV, and RD Glyphs.

DP for mitigation.
SoV for threat.
and RD because i've got no +hit tanking gear :(

RD Glyph is probably the best you can switch since taunting isn't really important in Ulduar.

Of the fights I've done Razorscale, Iron Council and Kologarn all require taunting, as does the way we do the Auriya pull. That's over half of the bosses we've killed.

But you also have 2 taunts, both off the GCD.

Even with an 8% miss rate (how much is made up for by the glyph), you have less than a 1% chance that both RD and HoReck would miss.

If a taunt misses, does it still count toward the diminishing returns on that target?

No.

Ty guys, I ended up replacing Imp Judgments.

Honestly after a bad night of double misses on 4 horsemen, I'm afraid to run around without the RD Glyph it anymore. And Ulduar has so many more instances where I need to taunt. Only time I taunted in naxx was on 4 horsemen, now it's every other boss, some of the trash and tons of adds to pick up.

I know the odds of a double resist are pretty low, but with the number of taunts a night we have now, the odds of a fatal mistake rise above lvls I care for. Frankly I never used hit gear before, threat was just so good we didn't need it, but now I'm looking for +hit pieces.

Glyph of Seal of Vengeance
Glyph of Divine Plea
Glyph of Hand of Salvation (will probably change this to Judgement once Ulduar hardmode is on farm, so some time in the next century)

DP, SoV and Judgement too.
When I feel a missed taunt is an issue then I swap in more hit gear to reduce the resist chance.

I don't have end-game gear and I haven't missed a taunt, I mean RD has missed yes, but HoRec is right there to pick up the mob if needed.

I currently use...
- Divine Plea
- Vengeance
- Hammer of Wrath
