Learn Glyph of Frost Armor

Glyph of Frost Armor

As I mentioned in a previous post on Glyph Changes In Patch 4.1, with the release of Patch 4.1 there would be one new glyph introduced to the Inscription Profession.  Scribes can now craft the Glyph of Frost Armor, a new glyph for the mage class.  It was unknown how the glyph would be learned once it became available. 

Quickly after the release of Patch 4.1, I learned that it was available from Northrend Inscription Research, which is just one of the possible options.  Scribes can also learn new recipes from Book of Glyph Mastery, Minor Inscription Research (but obviously minor glyphs only), or from the Inscription profession trainer.  Lucky for scribes it was one of the cheaper options.  Had it been learned from a Book of Glyph Mastery, it would have cost scribes far more in gold due to the scarcity and high demand that already exists for the Books of Glyph Mastery.   

Northrend Inscription Research and Snowfall Ink

The Northrend Inscription Research profession ability requires a Snowfall Ink, which may not be available on the auction house for your server.  There may exist a market for selling the Snowfall Inks for a super slight window of opportunity as all scribes will need at least 1 to learn the new Glyph of Frost Armor.  You can always get one from trading in 10 Snowfall Inks to Jessica Sellers or the newly added Ink Traders.


  1. These are selling, but nothing impressive relative to other glyphs. I was first to get it and start selling it, and have sold about 4 with minimal, non-aggressive competition (i.e., these things are not selling much on my server). I even spent some time barking. No tells, nothing. To me, and to others it seems, it looks like just another glyph to add to the 300-400 available. I'm guessing it's not a key glyph for any of the specs.

    Also, there is more than enough cheap Snowfall Ink on my server, unfortunately. As long as people keep making and selling glyphs, there will be Snowfall Ink.

    But server vary, as you pointed out. Other experiences may be different.


  2. Sold 6 so far at500g each. Just one other person has listed one.

  3. Read your post.. don't have the glyph on my scribe but went to ah and saw 5 for 10g each.. bought them all and posted for 200g.. Sold 1 and now everyone's lowballing each other. So as typical it's gonna different cross servers.. Thanx for the heads up, great site!!
