Make glyph to channel mind flay while moving

Priest
^ or even a change one of the talents maybe
It might be a bit too op in pvp so maybe make the glyph/talent that it doesn't snare.
No, there's no reason to make this game any easier.
I don't main spec shadow but I think for PVE it would be a great and needed change
Rather have a glyph of old school mind flay.
I think in order for that to happen the glyph would need to remove the slow.
I don't really like the idea but during movement phases I find it hard to do anything aside from SW: P spam or throw a devouring plague. Comparing to other casters, most of them have something they can do on the move and I feel shadow needs something aside from putting up instant cast DoTs.

On topic: we are not going to get the ability to cast MF on the move in MoP. It just won't happen. The tl;dnr explanation is: spec identity, need, general caster movement dps and encounter design.
We can cast on the move it is called shadow word: pain
We need something else to help us on the move, it's frustrating how bad we are when it comes to moving and DPSing. I took Speed Bubble because it helps me move quickly so I can start casting again.

Taedas, you're right, but SW:P is awful to cast on the go if you just put up a trinket proc SW:P.
Aren't FDCL and DI sort of a solution to movement, with your DoTs being able to proc instant damage?
In order for this glyph to be effective you would always have to be sort of facing a target as you move (within the 120 degree arc or w/e). Think of the way a sailing boat moves against a wind you would have to tack in order to keep dealing damage, which may not be possible in many situations (ground effects, head/tail-swips, etc.) or may simply be less effective than halting casting for the few moments it takes to re-position yourself by moving in a straight line. Ultimately, I think it would be preferable if we gained access to a spammable low mana, low damage spell that has no facing requirements but such an addition would be highly unlikely to drop within an expansion.

Lol no. Unless you are using "solution" in a way I've never heard it described before
