Everybody, Do The Monkey!

There’s plenty to talk about in the fallout of yesterday’s massive patch.  Rather than discuss changes in a class or role, something else caught my eye this morning.

Yes, this is another Glyph topic.  Before you cry foul or hit your homepage button this is a bit different.  My scribe is only 256, but I noticed two new Glyphs that I found interesting.  Both are minor, and if you were high enough when the patch hit you automatically learned them both:

  • -Glyph of the Arctic Wolf
  • -Glyph of the Monkey

When I saw Glyph of the Monkey, I couldn’t figure out why I still had it as  Hunters no longer have that aspect.  However, it’s not under Hunters…it’s under Mages.  That’s right, Mages have another polymorph option now.  Also, with the option to flip Glyphs in and out whenever we want now, being able to switch between Monkeys and Penguins with Mage glyphs means both will sell very well.  Since most people haven’t caught on to it yet, if you have a scribe, I’d toss a couple on the auction house and see how they sell.  I had one go for 30g.

The other Glyph is for Shamans, and is once again purely cosmetic.  It simply makes Ghost Wolf look like an Arctic Wolf.  Not as exciting as the monkey, but it makes me wonder if there are any others I might have missed or even ones that might be coming down the road.  Could we see a change in the Druid aquatic form?  Given the emphasis on under the sea adventuring in Cataclysm, it’s possible.   It’s also something many people have missed and as I mentioned it’s a great chance to put a little gold in your pockets before the masses catch on.

      So I saw. It’s funny, though, as I didn’t have to train those. They were on my scribe’s book when I logged in.

    when i trained at the trainer. i only learned rogue, warrior and druid glyphs. but 8 books, learned only one glyph. i feel so ripped off again on it. really think inscription is not worth it anymore.

    Inscription seems to be the one profession that has usage/profitability spikes. The problem is that things are hardly ever replaced…unlike gems and enchants. The week it was introduced, there was a mass amount of money to be made. Over the course of LK there was some money in Glyphs, though most of it was in the minor glyphs or end game when someone got there. There was never any real profit chances after that first week…until this week. Yes, glyph walls made money, but it’s not the same as some of the other professions.

    It’s even worse now. You can learn every glyph for your class and then you’re done. People have been complaining about glyph gouging on the auction house, and I don’t blame the scribes that much. Why people will pay 100g for a gem or enchant repeatedly, but 40g for a glyph is a crime, I will never understand.
