We’ve explored all there is regarding Inscription so far in the WoW: Dragonflight Alpha testing. Inscription is one of Dragonflight’s crafting professions that will be affected by the new Crafting Orders system. This guide will continue to be updated throughout the Beta and Live versions of the game, so be sure to bookmark and come back at each update!
The first thing to note is of course, with the game currently being in Alpha phase, there will be much difference in the live version (we hope). This includes how the profession is working, as well as the screenshots we provide. Some interesting tidbits right now about how it is operating, which should hopefully be adjusted before the game goes live are:
Currently, you can only mill 5 herbs at a time. In previous renditions of the game, you had a Mass Milling option to mill more at once. Once you finish milling those 5 herbs, the loot window opens, and you take the loot. You cannot “Create All” or batch-run more than 1 milling operation. The button exists to “Create All” but it stops after just one. What do these mean? If at least one of these points does not get adjusted, milling may be more tedious than it has ever been. With this out of the way, let’s get down to the facts.
Within each profession in WoW: Dragonflight, you will have terms that affect your crafting efficiency. Resourcefulness, Inspiration, and Skill all affect your crafting outcome at one time or another. These can be increased through your skill level as well as your specializations as you level them up. When we explore specializations later in this guide, you will learn more about how to increase these stats. These terms and the new specializations are all part of the new Profession Revamp for Dragonflight! Here is an example of what each term means. Let’s assume you currently have 5% of each stat for Resourcefulness and Inspiration, and 70 Skill.
