Glyph Conversion in Mists of Pandaria

50 days! Are you ready? One of the upcoming changes in the Mists of Pandaria pre-launch patch is the glyph system. These are the general changes from the Public Test Realms (PTR):

  • Prime glyphs no longer exist. All prime glyphs have been converted to major and minor glyphs.
  • Currently, all glyphs require only level 25 to learn. This might only be for testing purposes and can change at launch.

Hunters will have a total of 35 glyphs in Mists of Pandaria, an increase from 31 in Cataclysm.

Cataclysm Type Mists of Pandaria
Glyph of Aimed Shot Prime → Minor Glyph of Aspects
Glyph of Arcane Shot Prime → Major Glyph of Camouflage
Glyph of Chimera Shot Prime → Major Glyph of Chimera Shot
Glyph of Explosive Shot Prime → Major Glyph of Tranquilizing Shot

Glyph of Scare Beast Minor Glyph of Stampede
None Minor Glyph of Aspect of the Beast
None Minor Glyph of Direction

Four glyphs have new effects while keeping the same name.

  • Glyph of Chimera Shot
  • Glyph of Deterrence
  • Gylph of Disengage
  • Glyph of Snake Trap

Nine glyphs have not changed in their effects.

  • Glyph of Aspect of the Pack
  • Glyph of Freezing Trap
  • Glyph of Ice Trap
  • Glyph of Lesser Proportion
  • Glyph of Master’s Call
  • Glyph of Mending
  • Glyph of Misdirection
  • Glyph of Revive Pet
  • Glyph of Scatter Shot

The ten prime glyphs have been converted to seven major glyphs and three minor glyphs. With the addition of four new minor glyphs, Mists of Pandaria will have a total of 23 major glyphs and 12 minor glyphs.

Because the IDs of all old glyphs are being re-used, you will not have to re-learn the equivalent new glyph if you have learned the old version prior to the patch. You will, however, need to acquire the four new glyphs yourself.

  1. Handy list. :) I learned all glyphs a while back, and I’m relieved I only need to learn four more!

  6. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
