Glyphs

Glyph Interface

Glyphs are spell and ability enhancements created by scribes. Until used, they are not soulbound and can be traded or sold. The colors used in Glyphs are colors of the class for which they are meant.

Prime glyphs

Prime glyphs are effective in combat, and generally increase the healing or damage of an ability.

Examples:

Major glyphs

Stub Please add any available information to this section.

Minor glyphs

Minor glyphs give convenient or cosmetic improvements, such as reducing a spell's cost or removing the need for a spell's reagent.

Examples:

Some minor glyphs do have a more substantial effect, such as reducing cooldowns (Inv glyph minordruid [Glyph of Challenging Roar], Inv glyph minorpaladin [Glyph of Lay on Hands]) or increasing damage (Inv glyph minorpaladin [Glyph of Sense Undead]) so don't dismiss minor glyph slots straight away.

Notes

Wrath-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.
  • Players gain access to glyph slots based on their level:
    • Level 15: 1 Major, 1 Minor.
    • Level 30: 2 Major, 1 Minor.
    • Level 50: 2 Major, 2 Minor.
    • Level 70: 2 Major, 3 Minor.
    • Level 80: 3 Major, 3 Minor.
  • The glyph window can be found under the player's talent tree window.
  • Players who bought their Dual Talent Specialization will have two different sets of glyphs, and will need to activate a specialization in order to change its glyphs.
  • Glyphs can be installed at any time except when the player is in combat.
  • Like gems, once installed, a glyph is consumed. It cannot be recovered.
  • A glyph can be overwritten. Doing so destroys the previous glyph.
  • A glyph can be removed (by clicking on the glyph with your right mouse button, while holding Shift) destroying it in the process: some glyphs have undesirable side-effects, such as removing a secondary effect from a spell in exchange for more damage; hence removing a glyph without replacing it is supported.
  • Glyph effects cannot be stacked (they are Unique-equipped).

Cataclysm

Cataclysm-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

First announced in June 2010, medium glyphs were to be added to fill a similar role to ancient glyphs from the canceled Path of the Titans system. A little later down the road the word Medium didn't sit too well with them and was changed.

The new order of glyphs will be Prime, Major, and Minor. Major glyphs will generally be converted to Major or Prime glyphs depending on theyr power, Minors will continue to be Minors.[1]

Players will only have to use a glyph once in Cataclysm, they will then have that glyph permanently in their list to switch and choose from while out of combat.
