style="font-style: italic;">*This page updated for
Patch 4.0*





While it may be easy to forget them, Glyphs play a key role in any
class. This makes it very important that you make the right choices
when choosing your Glyphs. As of Patch 4.0.1 there are currently three
types of Glyphs:


  • style="font-style: italic;">Prime Glyphs -
    Will most
    noticeably boost your damage and are without a doubt the most important
    when it comes to choosing your Glyphs.
  • style="font-style: italic;">Major Glyphs
    - More PvP or
    Leveling oriented and will have little effect on overall
    damage. These Glyphs leave much room for players to express their
    personal preference.
  • style="font-style: italic;">Minor Glyphs
    - Mainly filler
    Glyphs with mundane effects.

Below is a list of the current Glyphs available to Warlocks followed by
some
suggestions on which Glyphs  you should choose based on your
spec of choice:
