BfA Inscription Leveling Guide 1 - 150

This Battle for Azeroth Inscription leveling guide will help you to level your profession from 1 to 150. The guide's primary focus is to show you how to level this profession, so if you are looking for more detailed information about BfA Inscription, check out my Battle for Azeroth Inscription guide.

Inscription is the best combined with Herbalism because you can save a lot of gold by farming the needed herbs, so check out my Herbalism leveling guide if you want to level Herbalism.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide. It can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 120 in 8 days with this guide.

Learning BfA Inscription

The new BfA Inscription skill is named differently for the two factions, but the name is the only difference between them.

[Kul Tiran Inscription] is the Alliance version and [Zandalari Inscription] is the Horde version.

Inscription Trainers:

  • Horde: You can find Chronicler Grazzul in Dazar'alor at the Terrace of Crafters. Coordinates: /way 42.3, 39.6
  • Alliance: Zooey Inksprocket is in Boralus at the Tradewinds Market. Coordinates: /way 73.4, 6.33

You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where the Inscription trainer is. Asking the guard will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

Leveling BfA 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] from the Inscription Supply vendors near your trainer, or sometimes from your trainer directly.

1 - 50

You will need around 900 [Ultramarine Ink], 550 [Crimson Ink], and 80 [Viridescent Ink] to reach 150. So, make inks until you reach 50, but don't mill more herbs than you need, because you will unlock Mass Mill at 50 which will give skill points up to 80. 

50 - 80

Use the Mass Mill spell that you learned from your trainer to Mass mill any herb. You will use the pigments to make Inks, and then use the Inks to level up Inscription, so these are basically free skill points.

Make [War-Scroll of Battle Shout] if you don't want to mill herbs.

80 - 85

8 x [War-Scroll of Battle Shout] - 64 Crimson Ink

This recipe will be yellow, so you will have to make around 5-8.

85 - 142

These recipes are locked behind Honored reputation, but reaching honored with one of these factions is really easy. You can reach Honored just by completing your War Campaign quests and then doing a few faction Assaults.

Alternative recipes

It's a good idea to make a few different kinds of contract recipes because it's easier to sell them at the Auction House. You should only make these if you can buy the rank 2 version because Rank 2 recipes will give skill points longer, and also cost fewer materials, and you should only make them until they turn yellow at 105. (unless you get the rank 3)

Check your map every day and look for Inscription World quests like "Work Order: Contract: Talanji's Expedition". These rewards you with the rank 3 recipe, which is even better and you can make contracts up to around 130. (you have to get the rank 2 to learn the rank 3)

Rank 2 recipes




Darkmoon Faire free +5 skill points

You should check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open, the event starts at 00:01 on the Sunday before the first Monday of each month.

You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest (use it at 145). Check out my Darkmoon Faire Profession Quests Guide to read more about the quests.

142 - 150

You can continue to make contracts, but I recommend switching to Darkmoon Cards because the skill gains from the Contracts will be very rare at this point.

8 x [Rank 2 - Darkmoon Card of War] - 80 Viridescent Ink, 8 Expulsom

You will need a few [Expulsom] to craft the Darkmoon Cards, so check out my guide on How to get Expulsom, if you don't know how to get this crafting item.

If you are Revered with the Tortollan Seekers, then you can buy the Rank 3 [Recipe: Darkmoon Card of War] from Collector Kojo. The rank 3 recipe cost fewer Viridescent Ink.

I hope you liked this BfA Inscription leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 150!

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 120 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is 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. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
