<3 teh daily blink its cuteeeee <3
I want to stand in the fire so bad. Ugh, he'll never visit my zone. Also, boooo about removing my awesome big blue ball of electric flame! I had that puppy macro'd to my rocket boots (belt now). It was sick. I have no sweet animations as a warrior.
Hahaha I love how nerds are complaining about the beginner tooltips. They're insulting their own intelligence by not being able to uncheck a box. Jesus. Worst community ever.
My profession huh? I wasn't aware that engineers could make glyphs.
What you are missing is that as time goes by people will acquire all of the glyphs they need. It's sad that I am having to explain this, but I will anyway. When the supply of something, exceeds the demand can you guess what happens? That's right the price will drop. People will want to sell the glyphs they have. With only needing to buy them once blizz has created a market where the supply is going to reach a point where there is no demand.
On my server glyphs are around 30g each. If you are on a server where they are in the 100s then perhaps you should create an alt just for inscription and see how well it works for you. I doubt you would though. People complaining about glyph prices don't want to do any work. They want things handed to them for free.
What if they also added in so that when you get your free set of glyphs you get a free set of blue gear to go with it. Would you be fine with that? Probably, but that's because you want the reward without putting any effort into it.
To the suggestion, I would be fine if they offered a minor glyph for free. Offering prime, or major glyphs though would be wrong. They offer you an advantage, but not something you can't play the game without. It's similar to buying boe blue gear. You can play the game with quest gear, and dungeon gear. You don't need to go buy boe for every level. Some do it because they have the gold, it is a luxury. It isn't required though, and it will be outdated when you start running heroics. Just like when you start running heroics you will have gold to buy glyphs.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with making people feel like they have to work for something. In fact I would say that the sense of "give me everything for free" is a huge problem, not only in WoW but in real life.
I think what you have to look at with an idea like that is that if the glyphs could be given as a quest reward theres no real problem. Afterall I don't see people complaining that they have a tailor/leatherworker/blacksmith and yet they are being hard done buy from people getting armour items from quests or loot drops.Really!?! Because they haven't raped Inscription enough already? For that guy crying what's next. Is he going to come onto the forums and say "hey, you know blue boes are really expensive at level 19, I think you should give out a good set".
Overall the suggestion is a good one, especially for new players who dont know a great deal about the game.

You can easily buy the glyph mats yourself and recruit a scribe in /trade to click a button 3 times for much less than 100g total cost.
The game is what you make it.
