    [DK] Glyph Idea

    I had an idea for a minor glyph and it won't get out of my head until I put it here. I am so sorry.

    Glyph of the Overly-Attached Ghoul-Friend
    (Minor)
    (Unholy)

    While your ghoul is unsummoned and you are out of combat, your ghoul has a chance [1% per second, 1min ICD] of summoning itself to make sure you are okay and don't need it. [30 second duration, has the same name as your most recent ghoul, disappears if you enter combat, does not affect actual ghoul CD]. Upon checking up on you, it has a small chance [1% per summon] of giving you a gift. [Gift is a Dead Critter (Random Variant, possibly including very rare capturable battle pets to mock you) that is Soulbound and cannot be vendored]. Does not function in instances, raids, arenas, or battlegrounds.

    Bracketed stuff is explanation and would not be mentioned in the glyph itself.






    Come on, it's no sillier than the Harrison Jones part of Uldum. Although that is a pretty low bar...
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    Wouldn't mind a Minor Glyph, Loyalty to the new king

    Turns all frost attacks into fire attacks, new animations but same damage.

    I'd love to see a minor glyph that changes the appearance of DnD based on spec. At least a color swap would be appreciated.

    Awesome idea! Would be so f**king cool to see frozen ground as frost or spilling blood as blood ;D But its not gonna happen anytime soon because they are already trying to minimize the animations on the ground/etc.

    There are NPC's with a death and decay style attack that are different colors (like the green one in ..SFK..? I believe) so it doesn't seem like it would require any additional asset creation unless they decided to get artsy with it. Would be nice to have the option since they're allowing you to turn down other player particles. I'd like to admire my shiny blue rune circle lol

    Although people don't go there often, Rage Winterchill in the Hyjal Summit raid has the exact same colour and art style DnD as a regular DK. I nearly had my ass handed to me by the spell until I realised it was 3 times the size.

    Glyph of [Couldn't Think of a Good/Clever Name]: Changes the color of your eyes, depending on what presence you're in.

    I really like this. It doesn't have to be a DPS glyph, just something for flavor. For example, Frost Strike could become Fiery Strike, Howling Blast could become Inferno Blast, etc. You get the picture.

    Blizz has said that blue eyes aren't going anywhere, since all DKs, regardless of spec, are related to the Frozen North.

    Which is a shame, since tanking with red eyes would be baller.

    I really got into the turning Frost into a Fire spec idea.

    Would it make sense lore-wise since Bolvar (New LichKing, and my hero <3) became all fiery?

    But making it a glyph would be a total waste, should definitely be similar to the Warlock's green fire quest if ever implemented.

    Imagine how epic the fiery version of Howling Blast would look.

    Something tells me WoD will have something for Pallys just like MoP n locks
