I'm a bit confused about Glyph of Consecration, the guide says it increases the duration and lowers the cooldown, but it increases both duration and cooldown by the same amount. And unless I'm missing something, the damage seems to be worse because of the total damage being the same.

Hey! I misspoke in the guide saying it reduced the cooldown, it does indeed increase it along with the duration as you mentioned, but the part that makes it a DPS increase while doing the same damage is the fact it allows you to cast other abilities instead of casting Consecration if that makes sense, you have more time between casts to use your other abilities. Consecration is always *worth* casting but this just allows you to maximize your globals on other abilities while keeping it active if that makes sense. 

Thanks for checking out my guide!

Is there any reason with the spec not to get the most of both worlds and pick up divine sacrifice while using the last 5points in seals of the pure? 

You're only missing out on the 10% extra damage decrease but you still get the 30% redirect from the basic divine sacrifice, and iirc correctly you can bubble to ensure the damage doesn't push you below 20% and cancel the effect as ret, meaning the extra damage reduction isn't as useful as it would be for a prot paladin who doesn't have that luxury if he's tanking a target
