5. Resto Glyphs (updated for 5.2, 3/3/2013)
Major glyph options: I recommend using Lifebloom, regrowth, and Rejuv for 10-mans or 5-mans. Use Wild Growth instead of Rejuv for 25-mans.
- Lifebloom: Target-swap glyph. Use when you have 3 stacks of LB on one tank and want to swap lifebloom to a different tank. The glyph will allow your 3-stack of lifebloom to swap to a different target. Note that the LB glyph doesn’t work in tree form (you just spread single-stack LBs around like normal), and that you can’t wait until the last second to swap because it won’t swap properly when there are less than 2 seconds left on the duration. This is really helpful for tank-swap fights in raids and not useful outside of those situations
- Regrowth: Makes your regrowth have a 100% chance to crit, but takes away the HOT component. If you take this, you’ll definitely want to cast regrowths when you get OOC procs (more helpful with the Incarnation talent, as well).
- Rejuvenation: When you have rejuv active on 3 or more targets, your Nourish cast time is reduced by 30%. I definitely recommend this for helping when you use more nourish for mana conservation.
- Wild Growth: Wild Growth can affect 1 more target (6 instead of 5), but the cooldown becomes 10 seconds instead of 8. I recommend this for 25-mans. This is situational for 10′s, and not helpful for 5′s.
- Rebirth: Your targets return to life with 100% health instead of 60%. This isn’t mandatory, but could be helpful if you are the only person who can bres in your raids.
- Healing Touch: When you cast HT, the cooldown on your swiftmend is reduced by 1 second. If you use a lot of healing touch, this can be useful. Otherwise, skip this in favor of others.
- Blooming (PVP-oriented): reduces the duration of your lifebloom & increases the size of the bloom. Don’t take this unless you are PVP’ing.
Minor glyphs: These are mostly cosmetic things. There is a new perma-tree cosmetic glyph (Glyph of the Treant). Glyph of the Stag and Glyph of the Orca are also particularly nice cosmetic glyphs.
