No? Why would they?

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.

But the column of fire is so awesome!

its my understanding that its actually getting a buff in 5.2

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.

Also instant cast holy fire glyph is removed and changed to increase range on offensive atonement spells from 30 yards to 40 yards

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.
