With the new expansion WoTLK coming, many new features have been added since patch 3.0.2. The new profession Inscription is one of them.
Inscription is different from any profession to date while utilizes a lot of traits for other professions. The biggest difference between Inscription versus any other profession is at skill level 50+, you can start making “end game” items and glyphs (end game in the sense that level 70-80 players will want to use the items you’ve created). Glyphs are unique in that typically no Glyph is “better” then another Glyph – each have their benefits depending on the situation. So whether your making a skill level 75 Glyph or a skill level 375 Glyph both could equally desirable.

How it Works: The Three Part Process
Inscription is a three part process: Herbs -> Pigment -> Ink -> Glyphs. To create pigments you will have to use the new “Milling” ability to turn stacks of 5 herbs into 2-3 pigments. The type of herb directly affects the type of pigments it creates (see table below). From there you can use pigments to create inks – some inks require a combination of pigments and lower level inks to create. Finally Glyphs generally require a mix of certain inks, parchments (new purchasable item), and herbs to create.
There is an inscription 1-300 trainer in each of the 4 major cities in Azeroth (just ask a guard for the location) – to train from 300-375 you will need to head over to Hellfire Peninsula in Outland.

Notes on the Guide
Scroll of XXXX = Scroll of Agility/Intellect/Spirit/Stamina/Strength
Glyph of XXXX = The glyphs that are currently Orange(or JUST turned yellow) and require only 1 Ink when possible. (100% skill up) They normally come in 2’s or but occasionally come with just 1 glyph later on. You can do that one glyph or use some other glyph if you want. Any glyph will give 5 more 100% skill ups after it turns yellow, and the next 5 after that will be about 60% the time it will skill up.
And you are done! Note that there is a new ink at 350 as well as Glyphs that uses the new ink – but they all require Northrend materials so I skipped it for this guide. 360-365 is BRUTAL as everything is green at this point. At 365 EVERYTHING turns gray – it is not possible to hit 375 at the moment.
Note that I did not write this guide, I just edited it. I did the Text Formatting, removed some things, added some things like images, etcetra.
