All Legion Glyphs, Books, and Class Toys
Along with all of the class changes coming in the Legion
, there are updates to the glyph system:
Major Glyphs are removed.
New cosmetic glyphs have been added.
There is no limit on cosmetic glyphs, besides the rule that only one cosmetic glyph can be active on a spell at once.
The glyph UI is gone; you simply apply the glyph directly to the spell.
We've made a series of videos below previewing all of the cosmetic glyphs for each class in Legion. In addition, we've published the
Legion Inscription Guide
. With the removal of major glyphs, scribes have some new things to craft such as Vantus Runes which boost your versatility against a certain boss for a week, Steamy Romance Novel toys, and new Darkmoon Faire Cards.
Finally, we've made a list of cosmetic spells that have been changed into books and toys. Treant form isn't gone for good, it's obtainable via
