Mage glyphs broken in 4.0.1—and no hotfix

Well, this sucks.

A poster to the official forum pointed out a rather severe problem in the form of a question:

Are the mage glyph tiers (Prime, Major, Minor) going to be organized to match that of beta because on PTR certain Glyphs were marked as majors instead of primes and thus would cause mayhem with specs.

To which Blizzard replied:

Unfortunately, no—but thank you for bringing this up. For those reading along, the following mage glyphs in 4.0.1 are incorrectly classified as Major glyphs instead of Prime glyphs and, as a result, cannot be slotted at this time:

Glyph of Arcane Barrage
Glyph of Molten Armor
Glyph of Frostbolt
Glyph of Arcane Missiles
Glyph of Frostfire Bolt
Glyph of Fireball

While this issue cannot be hotfixed, we understand the impact it will have on players and so are searching for means by which to address the matter as quickly as possible. It’s definitely a priority for us.

Ugh. Quite the damper on my patch-related warm fuzzy.

I wonder how my other characters are doing…
