Note: this post contains information on Wrath of the Lich King.
Inscription is still being tuned, and a lot of glyphs are incomplete or non-existent – not to mention we haven’t seen a single Minor Glyph yet for most classes.
However, some of the existing Glyphs are worth taking a look at; of course, they may change before Inscription goes live. And some of the glyphs lead to some very interesting conclusions about possible playstyles when Wrath goes live.

I’ve been stockpiling herbs in preparation for picking up Inscription on Wrath Day (now, even sooner on Patch 3.0 Day).
I may have gone too far.
Inscription update for the day: it’s mostly still not implemented, so still no guide from me.
To be more accurate: a lot of recipes are now available from the trainer, from skill level 1 up to 400 at present. However, the materials for the recipes have not yet been tuned. Every glyph currently requires Moonglow Ink (made from Peacebloom, Silverleaf, Earthroot, or Mageroyal), one of each type of parchment (bought from Vendors), and one piece of Mageroyal. Obviously, 400-skill recipes aren’t going to require a level 10 herb, so clearly they’re placeholders until the correct list of mats is implemented. So, there’s no point in creating a powerlevelling guide just yet.
Update: Druid glyphs appear to have the correct mats requirements. However, it’s clear that Inscription is still very unfinished, and any powerlevelling guide would be premature and inaccurate.
Also, note that the Glyphs pane of the spellbook now has three slots for Major Glyphs and three for Minor Glyphs; it looks like the model of two Major, two Minor and two Lesser has been abandoned.
I notice I’ve had a lot of hits today from Google searches for Inscription guides – presumably fuelled by today’s announcement that Inscription will be available pre-Wrath Day.
This is just a headsup for you visitors: I’m still planning to write a guide to levelling Inscription once all the information is available. Currently, Inscription still isn’t implemented in the Wrath beta, beyond some basic lowbie abilities (no Glyphs, just stat scrolls).
So, you’ll all be the first to know once I’ve got data to work with, but until then, no-one can give you a meaningful Inscription guide because the information is just not available yet. Watch this space!
Note: this post contains spoilers for Wrath of the Lich King.
This is the first of a two-part guide to Inscription, the new tradeskill being introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. The second part will cover specific recipes, required mats, and a recommended path for levelling the skill as efficiently and quickly as possible – however, that’s a fair way off, and won’t be published until the list of recipes is reasonably complete. This post will be updated as more information comes to hand.
Last Update: 30 July; beta build 8681

REVISED Inscription Guide
For the full list of Inscription recipes and the complete Inscription Guide, download the guide as a PDF file here: inscription10.pdf. (The full guide is in PDF form because frankly, it’s almost impossible to format all those tables as a blog post.)
Otherwise: read on for the original post.
Note that Iâ€™m calling people with Inscription â€˜inscribersâ€™, because â€˜inscriptionistsâ€™ sounds clunky. If the community standardises on a name Iâ€™ll change to that.

Well, Inscription is now available in the current WotLK build, which is good news for those curious about the profession.
I’m just waiting for character copy to be working again so I can copy my herb banker across, and then I’ll be starting work on Inscription over the weekend. Watch the skies for an Inscription levelling guide.
