Priest Disc Glyphs

As of patch 4.0.1 several new things have happened, including new glyphs and once you have learnt a glyph you know it for life. But what glyphs are helpful as a priest healer?

Primes
Glyph of Penance – Reducing the cooldown of your speciality spell really is useful. Penance is a heal that Disc priests should be using when it’s available.
Glyph of Power Word: Barrier – This will increase healing when inside the barrier by 10%. Casting this over your group or raid members at the right time with this glyph on will really help when comes to healing and trying to be careful with your mana consumption which will be something that’ll be on your mind come Cata.
Glyph of Power Word: Shield – Shields are still important as a Disc priest and the healing bonus from this glyph just means you should have this in one Prime slot.

Majors
Glyph of Divine Accuracy  – Presuming you have taken the Smite healing talents then this is a must have as it gives you the hit you need for Smite healing.
Glyph of Inner Fire – You should always have Inner Fire up and the extra armor ain’t exactly all that bad.
Glyph of Fade – This just reduces the cooldown of Fade. Not fantastic but options start to get a bit so-so in the Major Glyph section.
Glyph of Mass Dispel – Err yeah… can be rather handy in fights where you require to dispel often. Learning it will be helpful but I’d just use vanishing powder and remove one if dispelling a large amount of people is something I need to do in an upcoming fight.
Glyph of Pain Suppression –  I have to admit, I don’t have this talent no more as I just don’t use it and no one cares for it no more. This of course could change, but it’s been the case for a while now. If I did have it then this could be something I’d consider taking.
Glyph of Smite – not really very good unless you are hitting stuff with Holy Fire first and I have yet to find myself doing this.

Minors
Glyph of Fading – Just reduces the cost of your Fade spell.
Glyph of Fortitude – Again it’s a mana reduced glyph.
Glyph of Levitate – No need for bloody feathers!
Glyph of Shadowfiend – I don’t have this but some people like this. If your fiend dies from damage you receive 5% of your maximum  mana.
