Glyph List Part 3: Shaman, Warlock and Warrior

Glyph List Part 3: Shaman, Warlock and Warrior


The general idea behind the new profession Inscription is the creation of Glyphs.
Glyphs enhance your characters spells and abilities.

There are 6 Glyph slots: 3 Major Glyph slots and 3 Minor Glyph slots.
Only 5 are usable at this time, the sixth slot will open when WoTLK is released.
