Bubble-Hearth Returns!

A lot of Mists of Pandaria information has flooded the internet today. Here at BoK, however, we focus on only the truly vital and important elements for our discerning readers.  To wit: Bubble-Hearth is back as a Minor Glyph!
Glyph of Righteous Retreat: During Divine Shield, you can invoke your Hearthstone 50% faster.
Ahh, bubble-hearth. How we love thee. Things are looking up for Mists of Pandaria.

Here are the other paladin minor glyphs:
Glyph of the Falling Avenger: You slow fall during Avenging Wrath.
Glyph of Winged Vengence: You grow larger during Avenging Wrath.
Pretty neat. Wings give you slow fall and make you bigger.
Glyph of Bladed Judgement: Your Judgement spell depicts an axe or sword instead of a hammer, if you have an axe or sword equipped.
Glyph of Fire From the Heavens: Your Judgement and Hammer of Wrath critical strikes call down fire from the sky.
Axes and swords are cool, and adds a little customization. As for Fire From the Heavens, we'll have to see the graphic. Judgement and Hammer of Wrath are already flashy, adding fire might be overkill. Or it might be awesome. There is a fine line between the two, especially when it comes to holy fire.
Glyph of Mounted Kings: Mounting a paladin mount automatically casts Blessing of Kings on you.
Glyph of the Luminous Charger: Your paladin class mounts glow with Holy Light.
Mounted Kings is a bit odd. But hey, why not? And it might be good in battlegrounds where you can just mount up and have Kings cast on the raid. Luminous Charger should be awesome. Though paladin chargers already have a bit of glow. But maybe the glow is turned up to 11. Should be good times.

I'm thinking Righteous Retreat, Falling Avenger, and Luminous Charger for my three minor glyphs.

Excellent work by the Mists team. Paladin minor glyphs have been very lackluster up to now, and Blizzard is correcting that with a vengeance.


  1. Before I had a flying mount, I loved my paladin's charger. I spent all the time and energy required to do the damned quests and spend the damned money and get my glorious charger! I think I'm going to like the Luminous glyph the most. Just another epic feel to add to that mount and the memories I have from it.

  2. There isn't going to be a paladin out there without Righteous Retreat. The awesome penetrates to the soul.

  3. Bubble-Hearth was epic. It sucks when it happens to you, but it is just hilarious and very paladin-like. I miss Divine Intervention too.

    What will be practical use of Glyph of the Falling Avenger? Will it be usable on Lumbermill? Its been a while since I played my mage in BGs.

  4. I've been farming up AQ40 recently, and there are several things that punt you around. It sucks to be facerolling content at level 80 then suddenly die to falling damage.

    It may show us something about upcoming raid/dungeon design - perhaps there will be more things that punt you up into the air, and it'll be good to be able to save yourself if your mage isn't fast enough with the slowfall button.

  5. "There is a fine line between the two, especially when it comes to holy fire."

    I think you answered the question right there. Holy Fire. They have an existing graphic that I'll wager they recycle for this glyph.

  6. ...and I may go "reserve" the name Bubhearthbye for future use. =D

  7. "There isn't going to be a paladin out there without Righteous Retreat. The awesome penetrates to the soul."

    Imagine all the new glyphs are so cool that there are paladins without RR? I doubt it's possible, but I'd like to see Blizz give it a shot!

  8. These look like April Fool content, but it's too early...

  9. Most of these were on the beta, so not April fools.
