MMO-Champion - Cataclysm Glyphs, Heroic SFK and Deadmines
Cataclysm - Glyph Interface Preview
The new interface for Glyphs is finally available and it comes with a couple of very interesting improvements.

  • The biggest change, Glyphs are no longer a consumable item. You learn them and can swap them at any time after that, without having to buy them again.
  • Prime Glyphs slots have been added
  • All Glyphs are now listed, including the one you didn't learn yet.
  • You can search for Glyphs, and filter them.

    I'm glad we don't have to wait for H DM or H SFK. Looks like we can kill all suspicion of them going the way of the dance studios.

    *patiently awaits for news of Paladin glyphs*

    Vendetta for DK's?

    I think that may be under the wrong class.

    So what does this mean for Scribes? Will they still make the base glyph and then people have to buy that?
  1. Zoros's Avatar
    Good job dividing dmg/heal/crit glyphs from glyphs that modifies spells in two different categories. Probably glyphs will start being true options.

    Still no glyphs for the rest of classes?
  1. Katastrophe's Avatar
    Soo... No more real use for inscription then?

    Love the UI though!

    Not -everything- has to increase your dps, ya know.

    I'm really enticed by the new shaman glyphs. Hex, Grounding totem, healing stream totem. Even the totemic recall one might end up being good.

    Vendetta is a rogue talent, not a DK one anymore.

    Edit: nvm, too slow on the Vendetta catch =P
  1. Helgrimm's Avatar
    yeah... what about inscription? if its a one time thing, wont that just ruin inscriptions value? noone will want to take up inscription, since the scribe only benefits ( cant even think of any) are probably not worth the lack of trade value this profession has.

    This idea seems very nice, but i hope there will be something added/changed to make inscription a good profession spot to use.
  1. Trork's Avatar
    now they just want to kill the scribes income by making the glyphs "soulbound"
  1. Bidelle's Avatar
    Helgrimm: Scribes will still have the Darkmoon cards as well as the new Fortune cards to use for profit, as well as their own passive shoulder inscriptions as always. Taking away the glyphs is a minor thing to keep the profitability inline with other professions instead of just blowing everything else away.
