Glyphing in Cataclysm - So much for that idea.

I know it's been a very long time since I posted something here, but that will change as we get closer to the launch of Cataclysm. There really isn't much to write about in the current Lich King game world. Epics are dropping from the sky from badges, ICC 5 man dungeons and a nice 30% buff in the Icecrown Citadel raids. Essentially anyone who cares to pay attention for a few hours a week can get fairly well geared and as we all know, most people raid for the gear.

As I wait for Cataclysm, I keep up with the beta patch notes a few times a week. I'm not in the beta because I don't want to spoil too much and game mechanics are changing so frequently that it wouldn't be too much fun for me. One thing I noticed today from MMO Champion is this blue post:

"All glyphs are now found in the spellbook of each class on beta servers. Ultimately, classes will learn glyphs as "spells" and will only have to buy the glyph once to definitely learn it and swap it at any time."

This certainly does not bode well for scribes in Cataclysm. I'm sure there will be other interesting ways to make money in Cataclysm other than farming. Well, I hope there is because farming makes me mental. I guess it's just part of the "dumbing down" that Blizzard is doing with their general game design.

Until we see more of the changes to Inscription, I suggest you make as much money from it as you can before Cataclysm ships.
