    Inscription Powerlevelling guide -->

    I am copying this from the beta forums (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/th...37631&sid=2000) as i dont know if those will be up for much longer and i wanna preserve it for posterity.

    this is not mine.


    Estimated herbs used: (Powerleveling to 350)

    6 - 7 Stacks of Alabaster Pigment Herbs - (Peacebloom / Silverleaf / Earthroot)
    4 - 5 Stack of Dusky Pigment Herbs - (Mageroyal /Briarthorn / Swiftthistle / Bruiseweed / Stranglekelp)
    10 - 11 Stacks of Golden Pigment Herbs - (Wild Steelbloom / Grave Moss / Kingsblood / Liferoot)
    10 - 11 Stacks of Emerald Pigment Herbs - (Fadeleaf / Goldthorn / Khadgar's Whiskers / Wintersbite)
    8 - 10 Stacks of Violet Pigment Herbs - (Firebloom / Purple Lotus / Arthas' Tears / Sungrass / Blindweed / Ghost Mushroom / Gromsblood)

    6 - 7 OR 10 - 17 **
    Stacks of Silvery Pigment Herbs - (Golden Sansam / Dreamfoil / Mountain Silversage / Plaguebloom / Icecap)

    12 - 15 Stacks of Nether Pigment Herbs - (Ragveil / Felweed / Dreaming Glory / Terocone / Nightmare Vine / Netherbloom / Mana Thistle / Ancient Lichen)

    ** Silvery herbs has a very wide estimated range because there are 2 ways you can level from 290 - 300. One uses Silvery and can consume many herbs, the other uses Nether and takes far less but requires a higher level crafter's assistance.

    --------------------

    Additional Herbs used learning all 60 Minor Glyphs:
    12 - 13 Stacks of Alabaster Herbs - (Peacebloom / Silverleaf / Earthroot)

    Minor Glyph Research has a 20 hour cooldown. It will take about 2 months to learn them all.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Leveling tips:
    1. The guide is broken down into simple stages based on the type of pigments used for that level.
    2. Mill the minimum recommended number of herbs listed before you begin crafting each stage. This way you will know how many rare pigments you have to work with each stage.
    3. There will always be room for variance based on the rare pigments you yield.
    4. This is a power leveling guide using the most efficient path to leveling the profession. It does NOT take into account the usefulness of the items you are crafting.
    5. Visit your trainer often! Make sure you are leveling with orange recipe glyphs.

    Note: You may have to train glyphs frequently. As you are leveling you can usually learn new glyphs every 5 skillups from the trainer. They will be orange when first learned so make sure you are only using orange glyphs to level unless otherwise specified. If your glyphs turn yellow, head back to the trainer.
