This glyph causes the Death Knight [Pestilence] ability to refresh the duration of diseases on its' primary target before spreading them to the secondary targets. This saves the runes normally required for [Plague Strike] and [Icy Touch], allowing an additional [Obliterate], [Scourge Strike], or [Death Strike].

Removal in Cataclysm

Cataclysm This glyph was a core part of Frost DPS death knight rotations and was also seen in some Blood or Unholy specs; drastically changing each spec's rotation when it was applied. [Festering Strike] may compensate somewhat if it is incorporated correctly into a rotation.
