Inscription 101 Guide
Inscription is the the new profession for World of Warcraft slated to be introduced when Wrath of the Lich King is released later this year. The profession will allow you to essentially enchant your skills, talents and abilities to further improve the potency of their effect. (ex. reduce cool down on AR, etc).
Using inscription is very simple. The inscriber will simply imbue a particular scroll with the various glyphs. These scrolls can then be sold and used by any one (note: enchanting works a similar way in the expansion). Now that we have these glyphs explained we need to go over how they can be used by players.
Every player, regardless of whether they have inscription or not, will have a new spell book page for these glyphs. You’ll be able to add and remove up to 6 glyphs to this page. These will be your 6 augmented spells / abilities that your inscription glyphs will give you an extra benefit. These 6 are split into 2 categories.
- Three Lesser
- Three Major
What defines each category is currently unknown, but I would imagine the level / effect associated with the glyph will have a large impact on it’s categorization. In order to get materials for these glyphs an inscriber must mill items from herbs, similar to the way jewelcrafters get materials via mining materials.
A few of these glyphs are already known, as they’ve appeared on the beta test server. Make sure to check those out here, inscription glyphs.
