What's a Glyph?
The Glyph Interface was unveiled in the first Beta Build, 8634. It is attached to a player's Spellbook.
All players have access to Glyphs and the Glyph Interface. There is no level requirement to use the Glyph Interface, though individual Glyphs may have level or spell rank requirements. Most Glyphs created through Inscription can be traded or sold, though there may be some Inscriptionist-only Glyphs, similar to the epic Gems that may only be used by Jewelcrafters. Glyphs stack in your inventory up to 5 per stack.
Each player can add up to 6 Glyphs to their interface: 3 Major Glyphs and 3 Minor Glyphs.
* Major Glyphs provide major upgrades to spells. Examples that have been given are the addition of stuns or DoTs to spells, increased damage, or knockbacks.
* Minor Glyphs provide small upgrades, or cosmetic improvements. Examples that have been given are the removal of reagent requirements from spells, lowering spell costs, or changing spell graphics.
On the Glyph Interface, the larger circles with gold borders around them are for placement of Major Glyphs and the smaller circles are for Minor Glyphs.
When a player uses a Glyph in their inventory, the Glyph item is destroyed and its inscription effect is placed in one of the appropriate slots. Players can also over-write existing inscriptions. If a player chooses to overwrite an inscription, the old inscription's effect is lost. Requires a Lexicon of Power.
