In a sense the 5% longer cast time, and thus incremental spreading of the ticks (that would sum to 5%), would have a smaller effect than the 5% increased cast time on a full LB, since it's likely you'll have a proc/ability ready before you finish your full MF channeling duration.

But if they made Power word:I to change something like that, might be cool cus it sucks anyway.
#1: Role-playing should never negatively affect gameplay.
#2: Uh, no. You can not accurately swing a sword or stab someone while running. You can swing wildly and maybe hit, but not with the effectiveness that "100% of your melee dps" implies. So maybe a good balance would be something like, your white hits can be made while running but your specials have a cast time, which would nicely mirror the existing caster paradigm of having a few instants but much of your damage must be hard-cast.
glyph that allows movement, but gets rid of the slow.
seems like a fair trade off

And afaik, the need for this MF on the move is largely driven by PvE concerns.
Again, similar to Glyph of Unleashed Lightning.

Easy solve: gain mobility with MF but loose the slow- via talent or glyph. The problem is that during boss fights, which who cares about slow, we have NOTHING we can do while moving except 1) pray for a procced MB or MB if specced for it but it is in no way guaranteed 2) IF the target is low health SWD which is limited 3) cast SWP over an dover for the insta-tiy bit of dmg it does. We have no options so something would be nifty.
Penance is a channel while moving spell, if you have the glyph. Seems like the mechanics are already in place.
The glyph allows you to mind flay while moving, but removed the slow component (or maybe reduced to 10% or something).
The current mindflay glyph is close to what we want. It gives you speed boost while dropping its slow debuff. I think giving spriest a mindflay on the move would somehow increase spriest's dps abit.
As for the poster who mentioned that spriest has lots of instant casts, those are RNG and not reliable im pretty sure there are times in where half of the fight or killing an you get to proc what so ever and just spam flay, vp and swp.
Another thing i want to return is the swp refresh mechanic. I don't understand why blizz had to remove it, hunters still has the serpent sting mechanic, so whats the difference ?
If the glyph not only removed the snare, but also dropped Flay's cast speed by 10% or so while moving, would that be balanced?
IMHM, removing the slow and making it usable while moving as a major glyph is probably the best idea.

The glyph of mindflay how it works right now is far from usefull IMO.
I don't see the point in being able to move while casting mindflay. Only reason why shamans got the LB glyph is because they have nothing to spam while moving.
I just came up with something!
what about changing Mindflay glyph to: Afther a completed Mindflay cast your next mindflay will be able to cast while moving.
It doesn't make it so u will see Spriest jump all over the place with mindflay but it still gives u something outside SW:P to cast while moving but having it so u still need to cast a mindflay in order to receive the buff.
