Question about Northrend Inscription Research and Minor Inscription Research - Are there any factors that play for how often you get a new glyph? I'm @525 and have one minor left to get but have been unsuccessful at least 30 times....The same goes for NR. I have well over 20 glyphs to learn but haven't learned a new one for the past 4 days.

For scribes that are having awful RNG, just persevere. And buy some of the books. Or farm lv80 heroics once a week, the loot is terrible, but the chances are higher of getting books of glyph mastery via halls of stone loot, etc. some of the glyphs will be locked to BoGM, and others, well, will take months. It is not designed to be a fair profession, just tedious, especially the unlock RNGAnd then you get the fun of trying to sell the damn things.

Pretty sure the research will work 100% of the time as long as you have something left to learn. I'm thinking the only ones you still need are the ones from Book of Glyph Mastery, which is a super-rare drop from WotLK drops, and this stupid-expensive on most AHs.

I'm pretty sure research has a 100% success rate until you learn everything. There's no RNG involved other than what glyph you get. If you're missing one minor glyph, I'm guessing it's one available at a vendor somewhere, go Wowhead it.

One thing to remember is that NR =/= Book of Glyph Mastery. Chances are good that the 20 or so left to learn are all in Books. Unless something changed, 100% of NR results in a new glyph if there is one left to learn. I'm not sure, but it may be the case with minor also. Double check the source with wowhead or something.

As many said, you can stop doing minor research once you don't learn something. When glyph of shadow(form?) came out for priests, I insta-learned it with this research. If there were RNG, I would not likely have learned it that fast.
