Book of Glyph Mastery
Northrend mobs have a small chance to drop this item. A scribe wishing to have a complete set of glyphs will have to farm Northrend mobs or buy these books off the auction house to learn these glyphs.
- During Wrath of the Lich King, this book represented a gate which made many of the most desirable glyphs available from a limited (but growing) number of scribes. Now that Northrend is just a waystation on the road to Cataclysm, the supply of these books is reduced but many of the glyphs it teaches are still "must-have" items.
- In Mists of Pandaria, glyphs learned solely through this item will also be learnable through and .
- This book only teaches glyphs not learnable in any other way (i.e. trainers, Techniques, or ), so you don't risk wasting a book by using them before having learned all glyphs through all the other ways.
- If you've learned all glyphs that can be learned from these book and then try to use one book again, you'll simply get a message that you've already learned all glyphs and you will keep the book (i.e. it won't be used).
