This WoW Inscription Guide will help you to level your Inscription from 1 to 450.
Updated for WoW patch 3.3

This is an Inscription leveling guide, if you are looking for some information about Inscription, check out this WoW Inscription Guide. I believe Inscription is the best combined with Herbalism, if you want to level Herbalism, check out my Herbalism leveling guide.

If you are milling your own herbs, you should buy only Cinderbloom and Stormvine first, because those can can be milled at skill 425. Skill 450 also allows Azshara’s Veil and Heartblossom to be milled and you will be able to mill Twilight Jasmine and Whiptail at 475.

Approximate Materials Required for 1-525 :

You should need less, so don’t mill every herb, mill them only if you need more pigment.

  • 110 Alabaster-giving herbs
  • 70 Dusky-giving herbs
  • 170 Golden-giving herbs
  • 170 Emerald-giving herbs
  • 240 Violet-giving herbs
  • 120 Silvery-giving herbs
  • 180 Nether-giving herbs
  • 500 Azure-giving herbs
  • 600 Ashen-giving herbs

WoW Inscription Leveling Guide 1 – 525

Just to note, there is a lot of other Glyphs and Scroll at different skill ranges with the same amount of materials needed, so where you see [Glyph of …] for example, there you can choose between more recipes that is orange to you and requires the same amount of materials.

First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth – just ask a guard, and learn Inscription.

75 – 125

Learn Inscription Journeyman.

  • 80 – 101

    Make any Glyph that is orange to you. Glyphs turns yellow after 10 points here, then learn new recipes and choose another Glyph. Each orange Glyph will give you 3 skill-up points.

    7 x [Glyph of….] – 21 Midnight Ink, 7 Light Parchment

  • 101 – 105
    40 x [Lion’s Ink] – 80 Golden Pigment

    Make any orange Glyph if you did not reach 105 by making these.

  • 105 – 126

    Make any Glyph that is orange to you. Your aim should always be make glyphs while they are orange. Glyphs turns yellow after 5 points, then learn new recipes and choose another Glyph.

    7 x [Glyph of …] – 21 Lion’s Ink, 7 Common Parchment

125 – 200

Learn Inscription Expert.

  • 126-129

    It’s important to stop making this recipe at 129! You won’t have the benefits of multiple skill-ups if you pass 129! If the recipe turns yellow at skill 145, and you make that Glyph at skill 144, you will still gain 3 points.

    Turn your [Burnt Pigments] into [Dawnstar Ink]. If you didn’t mill your own herbs and you don’t have Burnt Pigment, you can just make any Glyph between 126-129 that is orange to you.

  • 129 – 147
    6 x [Glyph of …] – 18 Lion’s Ink, 6 Common Parchment

    Any orange Glyph.

  • 155 – 176

    Orange Glyphs

    7 x [Glyph of …] – 21 Jadefire Ink, 7 Common Parchment

  • 176 – 197
    Orange Glyphs

    7 x [Glyph of …] – 21 Jadefire Ink, 7 Common Parchment

200 – 290

  • 205 – 247
    14 x [Glyph of …] – 42 Celestial Ink, 14 Heavy Parchment

    Make Glyphs until they turn yellow then learn new ones.

  • 247- 250
    3 x [Glyph of Cleaving] or [Glyph of Soulstone] – 9 Celestial Ink, 9 Heavy Parchment

    This recipe will be yellow, which means there is a chance that you have to make more than three of these.

  • 250-255
    35 x [Shimmering Ink] – 70 Silvery Pigment

    If you mill your own herbs, you should probably need less Inks, because you will make a few [Ink of Sky] from your rare pigments between 275 – 285.

  • 260 – 290
    10 x [Glyph of …] – 30 Shimmering Ink, 10 Heavy Parchment

290 – 350

  • 290 – 305
    45 x [Ethereal Ink] – 90 Nether Pigment

    You will have some [Ebon Pigment] if you milled your own herbs so turn all of them into [Darkflame Ink] when you reach 325. You will need less Inks if you do this.

  • 305 – 350
    15 x [Glyph of …] – 45 Ethereal Ink, 15 Resilient Parchment

    Make Glyphs until they turn yellow then learn new ones.

350 – 425

  • 375 – 379
    [Snowfall Ink] – Icy Pigment

    Use all the rare pigment available. Keep the extra Snowfall Ink for Northrend Inscription Research. You will need to research to learn most "Northrend" glyphs.

    It’s important to stop making this recipe at 379!

  • 379 – 382
    1 x [Glyph of…] – 3 Ink of the Sea
  • 382 – 385
    5 x [Glyph of…] – 15 Ink of the Sea

    There won’t be any orange Glyphs for this part, this means that you will be making yellow Glyphs.

  • 385 – 386
    1 x [Northrend Inscription Research] – 3 Ink of the Sea, 5 Resilient Parchment, Snowfall Ink
  • 386 – 400
    15 x [Any Discovered Major Glyph] – 45 Ink of the Sea, 15 Resilient Parchment

425 – 525

Visit your trainer and learn Inscription Illustrious.

  • 425 – 450

    115 x [Blackfallow Ink] – 230 Ashen Pigment

    Stop making these when you reach 450, only make more if you need it.

  • 475 – 482
    Turn all your Burning Embers into [Inferno Ink]. If you don’t have any Burning Ember, just skip this part and start making the next recipe.
  • 482 – 490
    Go to Vashj’ir – Kelp’thar Forest. Kill mobs there until you get [Technique: Origami Slime]. The drop rate is pretty high, don’t get confused by wowhead data. The recipe will be green, but it only requires Resilient Parchment to make, which you can buy from Inscription supply vendors. If you don’t want to farm the technique, you should make the recipe below.

    15 x [Dust of Disappearance] – 15 Blackfallow Ink

  • 490 – 500
    Go to Deepholm and kill these mobs until you get [Technique: Origami Rock]. Same as above. Skip this if you don’t want to farm it.

    2 x [Etched Horn] – 8 Inferno Ink, [Scavenged Dragon Horn]

    Scavenged Dragon Horns are sold in Twilight Highlands by Una Kobuna in Dragonmaw Port for Horde and by Casandra Downs in Highbank for Alliance. These vendors are only available after the initial Twilight Highlands quests have been completed. The quests require at least level 84. These items are not bound when purchased, so you can buy them from other players or from the auction house.

    Do not forget that 10 Blackfallow Ink can be traded for 1 Inferno Ink at Ink traders!

  • 510 – 520
    The cheapest method would be to make [Forged Documents] up to 520 or 525. It has a 24 hour cooldown (it always resets at 0:00), but the materials are really cheap compared to the other items that you can craft at this skill level. This way it will take up to around 15 days to level Inscription.

    If you really want to reach 525 as fast as possible, make 4 [Divine Companion] or [Battle Tome] or [Dungeoneering Guide]

    Do not forget that 10 Blackfallow Ink can be traded for 1 Inferno Ink at Ink traders!

  • 520 – 525
    Make one of the following items:

    [Notched Jawbone] – 12 Inferno Ink, 36 Volatile Life, 12 Volatile Earth, Bleached Jawbone

    [Silver Inlaid Leaf] – 12 Inferno Ink, 36 Volatile Life, 12 Volatile Air, Silver Charm Bracelet

    [Tattooed Eyeball] – 12 Inferno Ink, 36 Volatile Life, 12 Volatile Water, Preserved Ogre Eye
