5.4 Shaman Glyphs

Patch 5.4 is introducing a whole bunch of new glyphs to the game, major and minor. As my Shaman is a Scribe, she is pretty excited about learning and creating new glyphs for everyone but also at some of the new Shaman glyphs!
New Major Glyphs
New Minor Glpyhs
 Major Glyphs Changes
What am I most excited about?
A COMPY?! Of course I want my Hex target to be a tiny dinosaur, my froggies are so small Navi never sees them and tells me to CC my target!
YES! It was just a few nights ago that there was mention of my poor Shaman getting a raw deal with the guild perk to reduce the hearth time. Now my Astral Recall will take me somewhere other than my hearth destination! Who need mages?
  • Glyph of Elemental Familiars: Summons a random Fire, Water, or Nature familiar. Familiars of different types have a tendency to fight each other.
Can't wait to try this out! Fighting familiars!? Hopefully they fight with the mage familiars!
This sounds fun and useless but I can't have them all active at one time, so I will try this out for awhile but I can see the others taking over from my current minors; Glyph of Astral Recall, Glyph of the Spectral Wolf and Glyph of Totemic Encirclement.

None of the Major Glyph changes are too exciting for Elemental. I do like the reduced cooldown on Fire Elemental Totem though.

You know what would be super awesome? With the addition of Raptors to Hex and Glyph of Spirit Raptors. Ghost Raptor in place of Ghost Wolf


  1. OMG a compy! That is cool!
    Rain of frogs??? OMG!
    Shamans get all the cool stuff.

  2. For baby dinos and a rain of frogs I'm almost tempted to level another shaman.

    1. I am tempted to try Enhanncement for the first time for more raptors!

  3. Oh wow, these glyphs sound seriously cool. I think I'll be spending more time on my Shammy in 5.4.

    1. I had a brief look through the glyphs for other classes, none were as cool as these!

  4. I'm most excited about the Rain of Frogs. I think it will be fun to cast Healing Rain and then summon froggies on top of it!

    I might have to try out the Compy glyph, and the Spirit Raptors sound pretty cool, too. Those glpyhs kind of make me want to roll a Troll Shaman.

    1. Raptors are perfect for a Troll! I do love my Orc though!

  5. I really, REALLY need to start reading patch notes more! Thanks Luxy! You KNOW I'm excited!
