Public Service Announcement, or “Why I can’t make your glyph yet!”

April 15, 2009 at 11:42 am 8 comments

Only a handful of the new glyphs are trainer-taught.  The rest are learned from world-drop tomes that teach a random glyph (much like Northrend Inscription Research).

I’ll edit this post when I get home to show which glyphs are trainer taught (Lava and Felhunter stand out, for obvious reasons); the rest must be discovered via research or tomes.

In the meantime: this is why your friendly neighborhood Scribe most likely does not have the exciting new glyphs you read about on MMO Champion.  Sorry.  ;.;  I wish I had them, too! 

… I also wish I had more patience.  I was ready to scream the three-hundredth time someone spammed Trade looking for a tome-dropped glyph that no one could possibly have farmed up in the half hour after the server came online — with Dalaran phase-shifted into the Nether (Did I mention that falling through the world causes durability damage?), Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms chain-crashing and the instance servers either locked or frozen.

Major Glyph of Patience:  Utilizing any in-game chat function now grants you the Patience effect.  While Patience is active, you are automatically removed from all global channels and your typing speed is reduced by 50%.  This prevents you from mindlessly spamming trade for that which no one has.

^ WTB!

Especially if I can throw it at people.  Like darts!   Pew, pew.

    Thank you! I haven’t been able to keep up on blogs for a while now because work is so hectic, but this really made my day! 😀

    Lol If I could turn back time and not asking in trade every 10 minutes if someone could make Glyph of Chaos Bolt, I would.

    Thanks for explaining why they aren’t available lol =X

    […] like Unending Breath and Enslave Demon, so I had to wait until Laeyla (Blog of Light) signed on but no one had Glyph of Haunt yet (which is supposed to be the Life Tap place holder until you get 4T7 or a about 600+ […]

    I feel kind of bad about the rant now. I wasn’t talking about you — promise. 😉

    I gave a huge long spiel over vent about this and how myself and the other guild scribe are going to be working very hard to get all the books as soon as we can and that if folks get them, and they want to donate them that would be awesome.

    And then not half a minute later one of the guildies whispered me and said “do you have the new pally glyph???”

    When someone invents the machine that lets you reach through the interwebs and whap someone upside the head, I will buy three!

    Oriniwen when you find that machine can I buy one too. hehe.

    I’m starting to think I’m less casual then I thought because I take the time to read and catch up with what’s going on. I might not have read every bit of the patch notes in detail but I at least took some time to glance over most of it. Loggin in after the patch was a nightmare. People yelling for glyphs, other people crying about “omgz my talents are gone”, and my favorite “so what did the patch do.” How do these people function!!!!

    It was your major glyph. I was laughing quietly to myself for about 20 minutes! 🙂
