Surge of Light talent affect on Glyph values

The Surge of Light talent modelling confuses me.

In the Holy Priest module, is it correct that when I set 2/2 Surge of Light, the HP-Sustained value of Glyph of Flash Heal should go to 0 (zero)?

With 0/2 SoL, glyph is worth 528 sustained, and 1/2 SoL, glyph drops to value of 289 sustained.

Since the Glyph merely reduces cost of all flash heals by 10%, I fail to understand how its worth drops dependent on Surge of Light talent.

Hmm, actually, Glyph of Hymn of Hope drops to 0 when I put 1/2 in SoL talent.

That just means the model expects you are using every proc of surge of light to cast a flash heal. Since flash heals cost 0 mana when you have this proc, the 10% cheaper flash heals does not do much good.

 

Glyph of Hymn of Hope probably drops to 0 because once you get 1/2 in SoL talent, you no longer need to cast Hymn of Hope to keep yourself through the fight without going oom.
