Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Inscription guide! In this guide, we’ll provide everything you need to max out your Inscription skill, from the materials required to the best recipes to follow.

Inscription is the newest profession in Classic, and was added to the game as part of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. While this profession may not be the most competitive choice for PvP and PvE, it offers a lot of in-demand utility items that should sell consistently at the Auction House. With Inscription comes the addition of Glyphs into the game, these items modify your spells to improve damage, healing, or quality of life. Scribes can also produce Armor Vellum and Weapon VellumEnchanting uses these scrolls to store their enchants so that they can be sold in the Auction House.

Virtually all characters will want to max out their Sons of Hodir reputation to gain access to their powerful shoulder enchants — scribes can opt-out of this month-long grind, as the shoulder enchants they eventually craft are superior to the comparable Sons enchant. Finally, scribes are able to produce cards for the Darkmoon Decks, which can be turned in at the Darkmoon Faire for incredible trinkets. Most classes use these trinkets into Ulduar and therefore they can fetch thousands of gold in the early phases.

Inscription relies on pigments from Milling Herbs. Because of this, Herbalism is the go-to choice for a paired gathering profession. Scribes won’t have to worry about other materials, as everything else they need for their crafting can be purchased from vendors.

Required Materials

Below you can find the materials you’ll need to level from 1-450, as well as a few tips and things to keep in mind.

  • Sometimes we will have to craft yellow recipes that don’t guarantee a level up on every craft, therefore the materials required are estimates, rather than exact figures.
  • Specific recipes will require items you have previously crafted, so check the lists before getting rid of crafts!
  • Some recipes aren’t taught by trainers, but instead are acquired from drops or vendors.

All of these things are accounted for in the materials listed below. Listed separately from the material list are those recipes not acquired from a trainer, but rather from a vendor or world drop.

Materials

While you can purchase all of the pigment you need from the Auction House, if you would like to Mill your own, please see the table below for quantities of herbs required to produce the appropriate quantities of pigment for your crafts.

Inscription Trainers

You can click on a Trainer’s name from the lists below to see its exact location. If you use TomTom, you can copy-paste the location and coordinates provided (after the name) to track down the trainer you need more easily. For example:

Milling

Milling your own pigment is an option when gathering the materials you need to train Inscription. In the table below, we’ve laid out all the herbs you need and the quantities required to get enough of the pigments we’ll use later. The value in the left column represents the total number of herbs required from this tier, so you can mix and match any of the herbs in the middle column to reach that total.

Training Route

Certain crafts need to be used later to further level up the profession. Other times, the materials can be bought from a vendor instead of the Auction House, or the crafting recipe is not acquired from a trainer. Some recipes turn yellow and as such do not have a 100% chance to level up your profession with every craft; this means some randomness enters the equation when it comes to materials. We indicate all of these situations with the following icons:

Craft amount depends on variance.

This guide is a bit outdated maybe? its telling me to make lions ink at 105-110 but when i got to 105 it was already greyed out. Also some materials seem to be missing off the material lists.
