Guide to Choosing a Character for Inscription in WoW Shadowlands
As mentioned above, Inscription doesn’t require any specific class or race. Kul Tirans have their [Jack of All Trades] factor that contributes +5 skill in any profession. Additonally, Nightborne have +15 bonus skills thanks to their own [Ancient History] racial trait. But truthfully, the question of choosing a class for gold-making in WoW depends on various other things, like farming materials, for example.

Generally, all of the materials needed for Inscription come from Herbalism. So, you’ll want to think about whether you’re going to gather the herbs yourself, or you’re going to buy them at the Auction House. And if you decide on the first option, we have an in-depth guide dedicated to Herbalism in Shadowlands. It can teach you how to level up the profession faster, where to invest your time and which farming routes to take. Make sure to check it out!

As usual, we recommend a Druid or a Monk for gathering herbs in the world. The main reasons for this are the helpful utilities their tank specializations bring to the table and the mobility packed in their kits. For example, both classes have multiple dashes or movement speed buffs, as well as the ability to not get dazed or slowed when in Brewmaster or Guardian specialization. However, if you choose to buy your herbs at the AH, then any class and race can do the job!
Shadowlands Inscription Materials

In Shadowlands, each of the four covenant-zones has a unique type of herb. Additionally, there are herbs that can also spawn in every location, no matter which covenant they belong to. For Inscription, you’re going to need them all. So, here we will list them for you to know where you can find them.


Rising Glory – Gathered in Bastion.
Vigil’s Torch – Gathered in Ardenweald.
Widowbloom – Gathered in Revendreth.
Marrowroot – Gathered in Maldraxxus.
Death Blossom – Gathered in Bastion, Ardenweald, Revendreth, and Maldraxxus.
Nightshade – Gathered in Bastion, Ardenweald, Revendreth, Maldraxxus, and The Maw.

Now, with Inscription, you also get [Milling] which allows you to extract the various herbs and make different inks out of them. Currently, in Shadowlands there are only three types of ink, each requiring a different pigment.

Luminous Ink – Requires Luminous Pigment.
Umbral Ink – Requires Umbral Pigment.
Tranquil Ink – Requires Tranquil Pigment.

Another type of material is the vendor reagents needed for multiple recipes. These can be purchased from the same Inscription supplies vendor we mentioned earlier, Distributor Au’sha. They aren’t the most expensive items, so it’s wise to get a stack or two of each.

Vendor reagents:

Aerated Water – Purchased from the Inscription supplies vendor in Oribos.
Dark Parchment – Purchased from the Inscription supplies vendor in Oribos.
Rune Etched Vial – Purchased from the Inscription supplies vendor in Oribos.
Sealing Wax – Purchased from the Inscription supplies vendor in Oribos.

Leveling Up Shadowlands Inscription

This part of the guide focuses on the best way to level up Inscription in WoW Shadowlands. This will be an efficient path that we’ve tested multiple times and it guarantees a fast 1-100 skill increase.

1-25: Use Milling on 200 herbs of any kind and then turn pigments into Luminous Ink and Umbral Ink.
25-30: Create 10 x [Writ of Grave Robbing] with 10 x Luminous Ink and 10 x Umbral Ink
30-60: Use Mass Milling on 700 herbs of any kind.
60-75: Use Milling on the Nightshade herb and turn the Tranquil Pigments into Tranquil Inks.
75-86: Create Missives with Luminous Ink and Umbral Ink.
86-100: Create [Darkmoon Card of Death] and complete Inscription World Quests.

Shadowlands Inscription World Quests

Indeed, the World Quests tied to the specific professions can be a great way of getting extra skill points. Inscription is no different and in fact, we recommend you to always complete these World Quests, whenever they spawn on the map. The reason for it that they also reward you with herbs like Death Blossom, which you can later turn into pigments and ink.

Inscription: Invocation of Duty – in Bastion.
Inscription: Litany of Might – in Maldraxxus.
Inscription: Hymnal of Reprise – in Ardenweald.
Inscription: Catalog of Sins – in Revendreth.
