Draenor Inscription Level 1 – 700

  1. Loot the Illegible Sootstained Notes (Horde) or Mysterious Satchel (Alliance).
  2. Complete the 3  quests.
  3. You will now have Draenor Inscription and Garrison Blueprint: Scribe’s Quarters, Level 1.
    • Draenor Inscription will upgrade your max Inscription skill to 700 and teach you to make Secrets of Draenor Inscription (Scribe Quarter currency).
    • The Scribe Quarter Blueprints enables you to build an Inscription Scribe Quarter in your Garrison.

*Another option for Inscription is to buy Draenor Inscription in Warspear or Stormshield for 100g. This will increase your max Inscription skill to 700 but it will not provide the Garrison Blueprint to build your own Scribe Quarters.


Recipes to Level from 1 – 600

Draenor Inscription provides the War Paints recipe as well as basic Inscription recipes to level 600. If you’re new to Inscription and 90+ then you can create any of the recipes below over and over until you hit 600 in Inscription.


Recipes to Level from 600 – 700

We suggest doing the following to level you up to 700.

  1. Create 1 Secrets of Draenor Inscription per day for 25 days. This goes green at 650 so don't make any Shadowtomes until you've made all these.
  2. Create 1 War Paint per day for 25 days.
  3. Queue 7 Work Orders per day for your War Paint supply.
  4. *Create 5 Shadowtome.

*For these remaining levels you will need to use 1 Secrets of Draenor Inscription and use it to buy the recipe at the Scribe’s Quarters. The most cost effective recipe is the Shadowtome and it grants 10 skill points so you should only need to create about 5. You can also choose to create anything else you might want for the last few levels.

Approximate mats needed are:

  • 250 War Paints
  • 650 Cerulean Pigment
  • 50 Light Parchment

It breaks down like this:

  • 25 Secrets of Draenor Inscription = 25 skill points
  • 25 War Paints = 25 skill points
  • 5 Shadowtome = 50 skill points


Garrison Building: Inscription Works

  • Level 1 allows the production of Inscription items and 7 work orders.
  • Level 2 allows followers with the Inscription trait to work there, providing a bonus and doubles work order production to 14.
  • Level 3 allows 21 work orders.

Work Orders convert 2 Cerulean Pigment to 1 War Paint in 4 hours.  This increases to 2 if you have a follower in your Scribe Quarters.


See our Followers with Profession Traits page for info on where to get the followers you need.
