No, but you can replace it with Power Word: Solace if you want which will essentially function the same just give you mana back whenever you use it.

Power Word: Solace replaces Holy Fire. It deals the same damage and interacts with other spells and abilities in the same manner, but is instant, costs no mana, and restores 1% of maximum mana on each cast.

I wonder if that would make it worth casting over Holy Fire or Smite now though. My Holy Fire now hits harder than my Smite, even with the 20% boost from the glyph. And as far as I know Power Word: Solace doesn't have a cooldown.

Unless Smite does hit harder than the 5.2 Solace I can't see a reason to use Smite.

Solace is becoming an upgrade to Holy Fire.

Holy fire will work exactly as the glyphed holy fire does now. However if you spec power word: Solace, it will change the name of Holy fire to Power Word; Solace, and reduce its mana cost to -1% of base mana.

Well dratz, I thought the changes sounded a whee bit too good. Make sense at least, woulda been no point to cast Smite if Solace had no cooldown.
