No
matter what your focus is in Azeroth, choosing the right Glyphs to
complement your spec is just as important as choosing the right gems
and enchants. Choose the wrong Glyphs and it will become painfully
obvious that something is not quite right. However, choosing the right
Glyphs can be a confusing process which this guide hopes to remedy. Not
only will all the current Glyphs available for the Hunter class be
listed, which can also be viewed in game as part of the newly improved
Glyph tab, but suggestions will also be offered as to what Glyphs are
most desirable depending on your spec of choice.



The new Glyph system introduced in Patch 4.0.1 introduces Prime Glyphs which tend to be the most important Glyphs and are without a doubt the heavy hitters of the crew. Prime Glyphs will likely be the ones to most noticeably boost your damage and should be chosen with care. Major
Glyphs on the other hand tend to
be more PvP or Leveling oriented allowing much room for variety. A Hunter's personal preferance will be the key deciding factor when choosing Major Glyphs. Finally Minor Glyphs as always are at the back of the back and as usual have been left to remain filler Glyphs with mostly mundane uses.
