One of the most delightful little changes in the latest MoP beta build is the new hunter minor glyph: Glyph of Aspects. I’ve always felt that minor glyphs should really be used to provide cool cosmetic changes, rather than trying to design them to provide a mechanical benefit so tiny that it really doesn’t matter. With Glyph of Aspects we finally have at least one minor glyph that provides that cosmetic change for us:
Glyph of Aspects: Each time you activate a new Aspect, an animal companion representing that Aspect will follow you for 15 sec.
The animal companion that shows up is indeed companion sized — tiny — rather than hunter pet sized, and includes a hawk, a red fox, an orange cat (cheetah) and a white cat (pack). Also amusingly if you switch aspects again before the animal companion has faded away, it dies so the new aspect companion can replace it. Here’s a good video showing the Glyph of Aspects in action:
The MoP hunter glyphs page has been updated to include this new glyph.
