** Silvery herbs has a very wide estimated range because there are 2 ways you can level from 290 - 300. One uses Silvery and can consume many herbs, the other uses Nether and takes far less but requires a higher level crafter's assistance.

12 - 13 Stacks of Alabaster Herbs - (Peacebloom / Silverleaf / Earthroot)

Minor Glyph Research has a 20 hour cooldown. It will take about 2 months to learn them all.

 

Inscription Leveling tips:
1. The guide is broken down into simple stages based on the type of pigments used for that level.
2. Mill the minimum recommended number of herbs listed before you begin crafting each stage. This way you will know how many rare pigments you have to work with each stage.
3. There will always be room for variance based on the rare pigments you yield.
4. This is a power leveling guide using the most efficient path to leveling the profession. It does NOT take into account the usefulness of the items you are crafting.
5. Visit your trainer often! Make sure you are leveling with orange recipe glyphs.

Note: You may have to train glyphs frequently. As you are leveling you can usually learn new glyphs every 5 skillups from the trainer. They will be orange when first learned so make sure you are only using orange glyphs to level unless otherwise specified. If your glyphs turn yellow, head back to the trainer.
