World of Warcraft : Inscriptions


With the Echoes of Doom content patch, a new profession has been added to World of Warcraft. Players can now choose to train a character in Inscription, a skill used to create Glyphs and other items. Glyphs are the big new thing in Azeroth. They can be added to a character to enhance a spell or ability to great advantage. Additionally, as the materials to make glyphs are relatively inexpensive (typically 5-10 herbs), it's not unthinkable that one would change glyphs, depending on the situation. One might equip one set of glyphs to raid and replace them with another set to PvP, much as one would use different potions for different occasions.

Glyphs are class specific and can be traded, mailed and sold on the Auction House. There is a new category on the Auction House, labelled Glyphs. If you click this link, you'll find a sub-menu of the various classes. Click on a class and you'll get a listing of the glyphs currently on sale that can be used by that class.

Scribes learn to inscribe glyphs from Trainers or through discoveries. Glyphs above level 350 and the certain inscription recipes can only be learned from the trainers in Northrend. Additionally, the ingredients for higher-level glyphs are only found in Northrend. As a result, glyphs above that level will be unavailable until Wrath of the Lich King is released and Northrend is added to the World of Warcraft geography. Certain glyphs are learned through the discovery. As a result, they will not be as universally available as the trainable glyphs. Their relative rarity will no doubt impact their price.
