Northrend Inscription Leveling Guide 1-75

This Northrend Inscription leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Northrend Inscription skill up from 1 to 75 as inexpensively as possible.

Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Northrend Inscription.

I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quests are included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. And if you are low on gold, I recommend trying this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make a lot of gold.

Northrend Inscription trainers

You can learn Northrend Inscription from one of these trainers below:

Borean Tundra:

Howling Fjord:


Approximate materials required

Mill around 450 from any of these:

  • Adder's Tongue
  • Deadnettle
  • Fire Leaf
  • Goldclover
  • Icethorn
  • Lichbloom
  • Talandra's Rose
  • Tiger Lily

Macro for faster Milling

Type /m into your chat then hit enter to create a macro. Then just copy-paste these strings in your macro and bind it to a useful/easy button of your keyboard. Simple but useful macro in order to quickly mill your herbs.

/cast Milling
/use Adder's Tongue
/use Deadnettle
/use Fire Leaf
/use Goldclover
/use Icethorn
/use Lichbloom
/use Talandra's Rose
/use Tiger Lily

If you don't want to mill a herb (e.g. Tiger Lily), just leave that out. This macro will start from the first herb and it will keep milling it until you don't have any left from that herb, then it will jump to the next one.

All your herbs must be in perfect stacks divisible by 5, the macro will get stuck if your herb stack is not divisible by 5.

Leveling Inscription

Nightborne characters have +15 Inscription skill because of their passive Ancient History. An extra 15 Inscription skill means recipes stay orange for 15 more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 15 more points.

You can buy Light Parchment and Virtuoso Inking Set from the Inscription Supply vendors near your trainer.

1 - 25

Simply milling the 450 northrend herbs should get you to 25, so making these recipes below won't give you skill points, but you will need these inks later to level up inscription.

95 x Ink of the Sea - 190 Azure Pigment

Turn all your Icy Pigment into Snowfall Ink and keep them because you will use them when you reach 65.

Make a few Research: Ink of the Sea if you did not reach 25 from milling.

25 - 65

  • 45 - 55
    15 x Scroll of Agility VIII - 15 x Ink of the Sea

    This recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make more.

65 - 75

Make as many Runescroll of Fortitude as you can with your leftover Snowfall Ink. You will probably only gain 1-3 skill points, but these are pretty much useless anyway, so you might as well use them.

You will need to make fewer than 10 Research: Ink of the Sea if you gained skill points from making Runescroll of Fortitude)

10 x Research: Ink of the Sea - 30 Ink of the Sea

I hope you liked this Northrend Inscription leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 75!
