How Glyphs are acquired in future patches

Blizzard recently answered the “Ask the Devs #7 – Professions” questions and i noticed a slight change in the future in how glyphs will be acquired.

Question: “Will you provide a way to speed up the acquiring of glyphs usually acquired through research and glyph books? Glyph books (Book of Glyph Mastery) are hard to come by now that people spend so little time in WotLK content.”

Answer: “Yes. We will be changing the discovery spells so they can teach all possible glyphs, and the books will simply provide a no-cooldown method to do the same thing. “

So what does this mean., it means in the future maybe soon or maybe later Blizzard intend to make all glyphs acquireable even via the daily research.

How does this affect us gold makers, at present i think there are 57 or 58 glyph recipes which can only be obtained by learning a book of glyph mastery. The only way to obtain these books is by doing Wotlk content or by visiting your AH (These sell around 400g to 600g) At present having all the glyphs allows you to dominate and control prices on the glyph market better as not every inscriptionist will have all these recipes but it looks like this will soon change.

We can expect prices for book of glyph mastery to go up due to demand and prices for those recipes which were only obtainable by leaning the book to potentially fall.

Will keep a close eye of this one 🙂
