Insider Trader: Inscription heads into Cataclysm

Insider Trader is a column about professions by Basil "Euripides" Berntsen, who also writes Gold Capped about how to make money using the auction house. Email Basil your questions.

Inscription is going to be going through some changes in Cataclysm. We've already had a pretty massive overhaul in patch 4.0 with the changes to glyphs, but we're in for some more after the expansion ships. Obviously, the mats we use will change: the new common pigment from milling is Ashen Pigment (for BlackFallow Ink), and the uncommon one is Burning Embers (for Inferno Ink). Kaliope, who I've come to rely on for beta profession information, informs us that the best herb to get the Burning Embers from is Twilight Jasmine, found in the Twilight Highlands.

As in Wrath of the Lich King, we will be able to trade the common inks for the uncommon ones; Jessica Sellers has updated her price list to accept Blackfallow Ink. It's going to be a single Blackfallow for a single older ink, as well as 10 for an Inferno Ink or Snowfall Ink.

Upcoming changes to glyphs in patch 4.0.1

Blizzard has just released key information on the upcoming changes to the glyph system in patch 4.0.1, which we are expecting to drop tomorrow. This is more or less what we've been hearing all along throughout the Cataclysm beta. The big points from Blizzard's release are:
  • Glyphs are separated into three tiers: minor, major and prime.
  • Prime glyphs typically provide direct increases to damage or healing throughput.
  • Major glyphs typically augment spells and abilities to offer additional utility.
  • Minor glyphs typically provide players with additional convenience or cosmetic changes.
  • Glyphs are now single-use; once you learn them, you know them forever.
  • In order to switch glyphs, you need a reagent called a Dust of Disappearance. Get those from an inscription vendor or crafted by scribes.
The full statement after the break.
