Description


Glyphs come in two flavors:

  • Static glyphs are glyphs that can substitute for one piece of equipment in a set, thus freeing up an equipment slot for another item and its procs;
  • Static glyphs are also glyphs that do not in themselves level up, but which speed up the rate at which a player can reach a weapon proficiencies;
  • Dynamic glyphs are glyphs that can be leveled up to add procs to your setup and later to increase the level of those procs.

Uses

Glyphs are their own category of equipment items.

As such, they can either open up another type of equipment slot by replacing a particular item or they can enhance your setup by adding additional synergy with procs.

The table showing the number of each creature-type in each location is very useful in determining where to try to level a particular glyph.

Spreadsheet view of glyphs/locations/creatures required for levelling


Use the spreadsheet to see the best places to level particular glyphs, or if you are in a particular location, which glyphs are most easily levelled (and/or most useful) in that location.
