So, with the flood of information from the Cataclysm press event, the thing I found to be the most shocking was the announcement about taking out the path of the titans, and overhauling the glyph system instead.
The post on wow.com about the changes states that there will be three types of glyphs:
- Major glyphs (much like they are now)
- Medium glyphs (NEW “fun factor” and cosmetic glyphs)
- Minor glyphs (much like they are now)
I don’t really understand the difference between minor & medium glyphs, since neither seem to be designed to really help all that much – and I have a hard time finding minor glyphs to care about already. So, there has to be some sort of distinction between minor & medium glyphs for the new system to work. I guess we’ll see over the next couple of months what they have planned for this new system. However, the lack of info about possible new gyphs doesn’t stop me from asking this very important question…
- What “medium” (ie. fun, cosmetic) glyphs would you like to see in Cataclysm for the druid class?
- In addition, what would you make as minor glyphs in Cata, to make them distinct from the medium glyphs, but feel slightly more useful than the do now?
So, readers, what are your suggestions?
The most obvious medium (or minor) cosmetic glyph suggestion for resto druids would potentially be a “tree” form glyph that would allow you to keep the cosmetic look of tree form instead of your normal caster form (which people have been asking for since the announced change to tree form into a cooldown). I would suggest the current “look” for tree form could be that glyph, and then when you shift into whatever the new tree form graphic is for the cooldown version, it would be visually distinct from your cosmetic tree look when the buff isn’t active.
However, we’d need more potential options – for cat, moonkin, bear, and resto specs (what if some druids really do want to be able to see their cool caster forms?)
