Breakfast Topic: Are you satisfied or disappointed with minor glyphs?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

Glyphs have been a great addition to World of Warcraft, and with Cataclysm, they only got better. One thing I am disappointed about, though, is minor glyphs. I really feel like Blizzard really didn't try hard on them. When they were first announced, everyone was speculating what great and fun changes they would add, and while some classes get some pretty good ones (like druids, for example), some classes get pretty boring ones (like paladins).

Druids get a faster aquatic form, lesser cooldown on sprint, a graphic change to Tree of Life, and more -- exactly what minor glyphs should give! Yet literally all of the paladins' minor glyphs are "X mana cost reduced by 50%." Very boring, and the things that have mana cost reduced are already uber-cheap and are buffs that change no way the game is played.

I know minor glyphs are supposed to be weak and not game-changing, but Blizzard promised many fun, cosmetic minor glyphs that would make the game more customizable. How many warlocks wanted to turn their fire green with a minor glyph? Hunters in 4.1 just got the option to make their pet smaller, but why do classes like priests and paladins have such uninspired minor glyphs?

What minor glyphs would you add to your class? Are you happy with the minor glyphs you have now?
