Prior to its cancellation, '''Paths of the Titans''' was a system of character progression which was planned to be introduced in ''[[World of Warcraft: Cataclysm|Cataclysm]]'' that players would have been able to take once they have reached level 85. The feature was announced to be cancelled at the Cataclysm press event on the 8th of June, 2010. The system would have been tightly related to the profession of [[Archaeology]] and was integrated with the [[glyph]] interface. Players would have been able to join cults dedicated to various [[Titan]]s and, by following in the path of a titan, would be able to unlock a new type of glyph known as an [[ancient glyph]], which would have been completely unrelated to the [[Inscription]] profession.

Players could earn progress down any of these paths by doing things such as questing, raiding, PvP, trade skills, etc., with a possible weekly cap for maximum progress. Over time, characters would be able to unlock new ancient glyphs that will greatly benefit them. Each path consisted of 10 ranks, with ten slots numbered from I to X; at each rank players would be presented with a selection of two to three different ancient glyphs from which to fill the slot. This system was designed to provide a 20% character-power increase over the course of the expansion and would be compatible with dual specialization. <ref>http://cde.cerosmedia.com/1K4ba774d664cbb012.cde/page/18</ref>

Pathofthetitansglyphs

The glyph interface of a player following in the path of Golganneth.

Path of Golganneth - Battle Hardened
Path of Golganneth - Breakthrough
Path of Golganneth - Fortification

Prior to its cancellation, Paths of the Titans was a system of character progression which was planned to be introduced in Cataclysm that players would have been able to take once they have reached level 85. The feature was announced to be cancelled at the Cataclysm press event on the 8th of June, 2010. The system would have been tightly related to the profession of Archaeology and was integrated with the glyph interface. Players would have been able to join cults dedicated to various Titans and, by following in the path of a titan, would be able to unlock a new type of glyph known as an ancient glyph, which would have been completely unrelated to the Inscription profession.

Players could earn progress down any of these paths by doing things such as questing, raiding, PvP, trade skills, etc., with a possible weekly cap for maximum progress. Over time, characters would be able to unlock new ancient glyphs that will greatly benefit them. Each path consisted of 10 ranks, with ten slots numbered from I to X; at each rank players would be presented with a selection of two to three different ancient glyphs from which to fill the slot. This system was designed to provide a 20% character-power increase over the course of the expansion and would be compatible with dual specialization. [1]

Players earned these glyphs by using the Archaeology profession to recover and trade in titan artifacts. Respecialising would be possible should players decide to go down another path. Some possible paths were[2]:

Some examples for ancient glyphs available through the Path of Golganneth include:

  • Rank I
    • Earth's Embrace - Physical damage taken reduced by 4%.
    • Battle Hardened - Reduces the duration of Bleed and Stun effects by 20%.
  • Rank II
    • Medic - Bandages heal targets by an additional 30%.

  • Rank III
    • Breakthrough - instant - 5 min cooldown - Increases damage dealt by 10% for 10 sec. Only usable after you deal a critical strike.

LoreEdit

With Deathwing's return triggering the Cataclysm and wracking the land with disaster, the denizens of Azeroth found themselves in a time of great upheaval. That, coupled with recent discoveries unearthed in Ulduar regarding the Titans, has caused a number of cults to spring up, following in the paths of the Titans in order to obtain new powers.

LegacyEdit

The Path of the Titans system has been canceled, however Prime Glyphs are intended to fill a similar role.
