Rating:

This Wrath of the Lich King Inscription guide will get you from 1-450 inscription in no time!

Approximate Materials for 1-450

You should need less, so don’t mill every herb, mill them only if you need more pigment.

Jessica Sellers in Dalaran sells every low level Ink, every Ink requires one [Ink of the Sea]. This means you can level up your Inscription by using only Azure Pigment which is milled from Northrend herbs, but you need another Inscriber to mill the herbs for you, or you can just buy all the [Ink of the Sea] from the Auction House.

  • Alabaster-giving herbs x 110
  • Dusky-giving herbs x 80
  • Golden-giving herbs x 180
  • Emerald-giving herbs x 200
  • Violet-giving herbs x 160
  • Silvery-giving herbs x 100
  • Nether-giving x 260
  • Azure-giving x 380

Just to note, there is a lot of other Glyphs and Scroll at different skill ranges with the same amount of materials needed, so where you see [Glyph of …] for example, there you can choose between more recipes that are orange to you and requires the same amount of materials.
