Make Holy Power a Visible Aura

Paladin
Priests have shadow orbs and chakra. Warlocks have soul shards. Paladins need something to make them visually interesting.

What was the most distinctive feature of the paladin in Warcraft 3? His pulsing aura! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSZhHLkIfkc)

Why not turn our Holy power into a pulsing aura? Each point of holy power could add one more ring to the pulsing rune under our feet. To make it optional there could be a glyph to turn it off.

It wouldn't be hugely showy, but it would a little bit of interest to a paladin, and help distinguish a paladin from the other plate wearers.
Might be cool. If there's a glyph to turn it off, those that would rather keep their resources private (like in PvP) could.
I'd rather see it the opposite - a glyph to add that. Replace the glyph of four wings.

How 'bout we replace you.
Good luck with that.

MY BEARD IS TOO MIGHTY AND SHINY!!!

Yeah either way it wouldn't matter. I say they replace either of the two glyphs that has to do with mounting.

Or that, yeah. I don't even use a Charger.

I do! But the glyph's glow isn't even visible on it unless you look really hard. :(

I thought Tauren got a silly looking Pally Kodo, not a Charger.

I have the one from the Argent Tournament.
Does the Charger glyph even work with the tourney mount? I've never cared enough to check.

Yeah. I dunno if it's because the mount is bigger for tauren than they designed the glyph for or what, but it's really hard to see the glow. It's there, but very small. Of course, it's pretty hard to see it on the kodo as well, so...

It does. I'm not a fan of any of the mount glyphs really.

Glyph of Mounted Kings is pretty worthless. Mounting is off the GCD, so you can just macro the buff you prefer to your mount. The only miniscule time you'd even notice is if you are oom, or change your mind and dismount right away you'd be waiting on the GCD (big woop).

I don't want to be distinguished in BG's, or PvP in general.

That being said it would be cool, especially if it was some kind of holy themed thing. I don't know like a halo forms or something (I don't want a halo, per se but something to that effect).
Um. No thank you. I'd rather not have my healing status advertised. Plus, its just more bright and shiny to clutter my view. I don't even like my wings showing in PvP, wish there was a glyph to get rid of that. The only bright and shiny I would prefer to go with is GoAK. Would love to turn into that instead of having a little dude running around.
