    Does the Glyph of Shadow Bolt really proc trinkets more?

    I just simmed with and without the glyph, and there is no substantial difference between having the glyph and not having it. Someone is telling me that it procs trinkets more. Here are my results: http://imgur.com/bPHRxfE,BXyOkfO,GA8jPwI,wInj3UU#3 and here is my armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...nmyfoot/simple .

    Afaik this was 'fixed' even before it got into the live version (someone will surely correct me on the exact date/time), so it is no longer like this.

    Glyph Of Shadow Bolt
    This glyph is NOT a DPS increase. It is also NOT a DPS loss. It is simply a cosmetic glyph.

    It's a kill a loss for attempting to kill targets with a crit of Shadow-bolt in PvP...

    No. It is 100% cosmetic.

    After they reverted the shadow bolts to the old animation and nerfed the size so much, I honestly felt this glyph became useless.

    Stacking trinkets like the ones from Spine STILL get an additional benefit from it. If you have one, feel free to test it. Outside of that, purely cosmetic.
