it’s actually insane that not only has it taken them this long to even acknowledge this horrendous flaw with shadow priest, but also this is the only thing they’re even doing with shadow priest. fantastic.

Or instead of having an endless loop of buying, applying, erasing glyphs, you could have it be an automatic feature of parties/raids and instances where it gets turned off for game-wide accessibility, so that we can keep our class flavor AND remain accessible to folks who need it.

So help me if I have to apply yet another glyph to my shadowform, which then becomes exclusive alongside Shadowy Friends and I have to choose one or the other. 🙁

That is unironically a really good thing. Accessibility fixes are super important for the folks that need them, love that Blizzard has been doing this stuff more and more!

…Now fix the rest of the spec 😀

I think it’s a pretty cool way of letting people customize there character even further and I’m sure in time there will be all kinds of goodies for all classes and I’m pretty sure there will be plenty of upgrades in the buffs & pew pew more dots as well so we can cause damage and wreck havoc on the WoW world

Good to take it into account, but please don’t use glyphs, as we already have language choice section in the chat panel

Anything related to accessibility should be inside the gameplay options, not forcing every player to renounce glyphs they might like or making it really trivial to even notice for players. This also goes for the motion-sickness option they’ve recently added to the game. Why would you make it a flask instead of introducing it directly onto the gameplay options? It just makes no sense because you’re gradually hiding accessibility behind barriers that players might not know unless they take their time to search for a solution outside of the game.

This approach alongside many others that have been taken recently is BAD, any game introduces this type of help for the player to change at ANY moment within its gameplay options.

At this point with all the glyphs might be good idea to bring back a Glyph Interface, like you know how was in WotLK

I think the default behavior should be the alt language and there should be some accessibility setting under game options to swap the default (for all similar cases) back to a player decipherable language.

I think Shadow Priests speaking in tongues or DH in demonic while they transform is a really nice game detail players should experience by default. Not because I’m not a fan of accessibility but because of how traditionally the default experience is what most people encounter first. And there is a good chance that if they go this “Glyph to bring back the feature” route a very large number of players will never experience this cool little piece of the game or know it exists.

Why are they all talking in /say? Raid chat ain’t good enough for them?

Good that they’re acknowledging this is a problem

Not so good that it’s another glyph (and glyphs in their current form aren’t great imho… much prefer the ‘learn’ way we used to have)

Honestly, if they need to ‘re add’ the language, then just make it an item that adds that language to your list of possible chat languages instead… keep it simple!

Also… why we can’t have some form of tome that teaches us how to speak a whole bunch of other languages?
(make them interesting to acquire if need be… 1 language at a time… or yer know… give us a mage that’ll teach us things in payment for doing some cool little quests for them?)

man i loved it when my WAs would call out stuff in /say only for it to not be legible in the slightest

Here I was hoping they would bring back the old voidform, either in the form of a talent or just a revamp.
But no, they fix something no one really cares about

Is it april 1st? No? Huh, weird…

“they occasionally have to type something in /say” – they don’t have to type in /say, that is what raid chat is for. The only way they would have to use /s is addons (which use /s to not pollute /i). And addons beind mandatory is the thing Blizz should really be battling instead of this nonsense.

Give me a glyph for the old visuals of shadowform already, please. The new(ish) look is awful.

Yes this definitly needs looking at, its really annoying in mythics and raids… but…. Can we also do something about Shadowform as well please, all my tansmogs are blurred into either a dark purple silhouette or a transparent and slightly less purply blob . I just want a Glyph to remove the visual effect of it, I’ve been a SP since TBC and never have I been able to enjoy how i look for now on 15 years!

you could also add glyphs to the barbier/character creation for all classes like you did for druids. this would make things easier.

Why not to make a glyph for disabling this? Why should majority of spriests lose something for the sake of minority?
